Resident Evil 4 HD coming to PC in February

Resident Evil 4 HD coming to PC in February

Though Resident Evil 4 is technically available on PC, it's a shoddy port from 2007 and you'll need to hunt for a second-hand copy, which is wholly unacceptable for such a fine and influential game. Oh, happy day! Capcom has announced that it's bringing "the ultimate HD edition" of its zombie melodrama to PC on February 28.

Scrapped Resident Evil 2 prototype leaked

Capcom never finished its first crack at making Resident Evil 2, getting an early version of the game together but then scrapping it. Parts and ideas did make it into the finished RE2, but the project later dubbed 'Resident Evil 1.5' never saw the light of day.
