Was Resident Evil CODE: Veronica the last true Resident Evil?


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

 

Resident Evil Code: Veronica, which Capcom released in 2000, is, in my opinion, the last "true" survival horror Resident Evil before Capcom introduced Resident Evil 4 in 2005 with a more action-heavy experience that carried over into the many sequels that followed.

 

Code: Veronica was slow, methodical, full of convoluted puzzles, and most importantly, utterly terrifying. Just the way Resident Evil core players like myself loved.

 

Will we get a Code: Veronica remake? I sure hope so. Anyway, what do you think? Was Resident Evil CODE: Veronica the last true Resident Evil title? Let me know by replying to this topic. I'd love to hear your opinion!

      This question may sound silly, but I would like to know what your favorite survival horror game is.
      I know most of you may say the original Resident Evil (1996) game is the best survival horror game ever, but I know some of you may think differently. Sure, the term "survival horror" was first used for the original Japanese release of Resident Evil in 1996, which was influenced by earlier games with a horror theme such as 1989's Sweet Home and 1992's Alone in the Dark.

      Now back to my question: What is your favorite survival horror game?

      Resident Evil Outbreak, known as Biohazard Outbreak in Japan, is a survival-horror game released exclusively for the PlayStation 2 between 2003 and 2004. Capcom released the sequel titled Resident Evil Outbreak File #2 in 2005.
      It was the first Resident Evil game with multiplayer capability, using the PlayStation 2's online network (Though, the servers have since shut down). Up to four players could participate simultaneously in one scenario; alternately, in single-player mode, the player is accompanied by two AI-controlled characters. Outbreak introduces the "virus gauge," which limits the number of time players may spend on a scenario. The virus gauge rises at different rates for different characters and increases rapidly if the character is attacked or crawling on the ground. The game lost all online play capabilities for the USA servers in 2007. The Japan servers stayed up but finally went down in July 2011.
      We don't have a dedicated Resident Evil Outbreak forum yet which is why I posted this poll in the Lounge.

      1999's Dino Crisis - whoever came up with the idea to do Resident Evil and Jurassic Park for a horror game, you're a genius. Sad I never got to play it as a kid.

      Capcom shuts down Dead Rising developer

      The future of Dead Rising is looking bleak as Capcom Vancouver is shut down and Capcom vows to move all development to Japan.

      Capcom’s most prominent Western development studio has been closed down, with the loss of 158 jobs.

      Initially, Capcom only announced the cancellation of a number of projects at the studio, incurring loses for the company of around £30 million. This implies at least one fairly big budget games, which was likely to have been a new Dead Rising.
      But today the company has confirmed that the studio has been closed completely, with Capcom providing the following statement to website Kotaku:
      ‘As a result of reviewing titles in development at Capcom Vancouver, Capcom has decided to cancel the development projects at this studio and will concentrate development of major titles in Japan.’

      Capcom Vancouver was initially founded as Blue Castle Games, when they were best known for baseball series The Bigs. Their first game for Capcom was Dead Rising 2, and apart from a mobile version of Puzzle Fighter they’ve worked exclusively on the franchise ever since.
      The original Dead Rising though was made in Japan, where it was produced by Mega Man creator Keiji Inafune.

      As such, the closure of Capcom Vancouver does not necessarily mean the end of Dead Rising, although the series has underperformed in recent years – and like Rise Of The Tomb Raider the fact that Dead Rising 4 was a timed Xbox exclusive did not help the situation.
      Capcom’s statement on the closure is interesting though as it implies that all its major titles, whether that includes Dead Rising or not, will be developed in Japan.
      This represents a significant change from their attitude in the previous generation, where they were often criticised for relying on little-known Western developers and ignoring their classic franchises.

      The success of Monster Hunter: World though seems to have signalled a change in corporate logic, even if it has unfortunately caused the closure of Capcom Vancouver.
