I’m missing out on so many HD collections

posted in: Game News 0

kojima_productions_logo.pngICO & the Shadow of the Colossus Collection comes out tomorrow and I’m not getting it because there are so many other releases that aren’t re-releases coming within the next two months.

It’s really too bad because I’ve never played ICO and SotC deserves a revisit in glorious 30 FPS. (For those who don’t know that’s actually 15 FPS upgrade over the PlayStation 2 release.)

But that’s not the only HD re-release that I’m interested in. Below is a list of wanted HD re-releases that have been released or will be releasing this year.

  • The Sly Cooper Collection
  • God of War Origins Collection
  • The ICO & Shadow of the Colossus Collection
  • Metal Gear Solid HD Collection
  • Resident Evil 4 HD

That’s eleven games that I would love to revisit before more new games and remakes hit store shelves tomorrow.

The Streets of Rage Remake

posted in: Game News 0


Streets of Rage Remake. It took them eight years to make this. Eight years to create, remix and remake the following content from Streets of Rage 1 through 3.

  • 103 stages
  • 19 playable characters
  • 64 enemies
  • 83 song remixes
  • and more

I tried one of the first stages with Axel and it was surprisingly awesome considering they didn’t reverse engineer any of it. I’ve never played much of Streets of Rage so all of this was pretty new to me. However, the real treat for me was their song remixes. They were sublime throwbacks to the 16-bit days with a modern touch.

Now the only thing standing in my way is the time necessary to sit down and check all of this out.

And just in case Sega has a change of heart and throws a cease & desist letter at all of this hard work, I’ve decided to host it here as well.

Resident Evil: Code Veronica Wii-make Coming?

posted in: Game News 0

Update: It looks like the Code Veronica Wii-make will take shape in the form of another on rails shooter called “Biohazard: The Darkside Chronicles

Resident Evil: Code Veronica is my favorite “classic” Resident Evil game. (Classic referring to is the control scheme before the Resident Evil 4 shift.) Code Veronica started out on the Dreamcast and made its way onto the PlayStation 2 and GameCube, but that doesn’t appear to be enough. On March 12th, a day before Resident Evil 5 official launches, Capcom is set to reveal something concerning the Resident Evil: Code Veronica.

Perhaps it will be a remake for the Wii?

Capcom is no stranger to digging up their past successes and giving them new leases on life. However, if it is a remake, why would they choose Code Veronica? It’s fairly recent and still holds up. If any Resident Evil games need remaking, it would Resident Evil 2 and 3.
