    RE0 everyone already knew about. A remake (or REmake) of RE1 is a neat idea, hopefully it will be a TRUE Director's Cut.
    Nintendo is not dropping the kiddie style to its games or its rep as a kiddie system, its turning it into a family system (Disney games for kids, FPS for teens, Conker for adults).

    That is great news. Not so much the "remake," but the idea that Nintendo will have more Mature games than their other systems. RE0 sounds interesting, I've been a fan of the series since the first one, and would like to play how it all started.

    Capcom releases screenshots and movies of their newly announced Gamecube title, Resident Evil 1. Gamers everywhere soil themselves.

    Wow...there's more news from Capcom. IGN Cube confirms that the Resident Evil series is now exclusive to Gamecube. The article says that Biohazard 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and Code Veronica are now exclusive to the Gamecube.

    Looks nice...
    I would expect nothing less from a radiosity solver.
    The most annoying thing is that Capcom has spent so much time and effort improving the background detail (the textures are gorgeous) and baking out all the lighting, then they go and ruin it all with the real-time shadows and character lighting.
    Hopefully they'll bake out some projected textures for the characters and use a slightly less-static shadow technique. Getting those details right (or at least less wrong - it would be impossible to generate truly 'correct' projected textures) would really improve the visual quality.

    I just about wet myself when I saw the video footage of the game......I was gonna get a gamecube but was holding off to save money to build my new PC. That can now wait. I must have this system now.
    PS.. The gamers arent the only ones soiling themselves, Im sure Sony and Microsofts heads are spinning!

    Well...This cinches it for me. If they are going to be releasing great-looking titles like that, I'm definitely getting a Gamecube.

    The Resident Evil series (RE Zero & RE4) are now Gamecube exclusive? Wow! [​IMG] I guess that is the end of the lame "Gamecube is kiddy" argument. [​IMG]

    Impressive stuff...have to say that i'd changed my mind about getting a GC, apart from Rogue Leader there wasnt much software coming that is to my taste but this is making me think again.

    That little Cube keeps on impressing me more and more. I cannot wait to get one in November. Those pictures and video are absolutely stunning. [​IMG]

    This is big news in many ways. Not only does the GC get a BIG boost in gamer support, it also shows just how serious Nintendo is commited to agan becoming the front-runner in videogames again. Not only is this a blow to the X-Box, I believe that this is also a big blow to Sony's ego as well.
    This,more than anything announced so for for the "cube", shows me that it won't be only a kiddie system.
    The console race just got a LOT tighter.

    Definitely a blow to XBox but more so to Sony, will be interesting to see how they react to this. Seems Nintendo have been busy little bees, makes me wonder if they have anything else to pull out of the hat!

    I was on the fence about which system I was going to get...PS2 or Gamecube. With Capcom's announcement, I'm starting to lean towards the Cube again. It looks like Nintendo hasn't forsaken us older gamers after all.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: Nintendo makes family consoles, not kiddie ones. They have Teen games with blood, adult games with dirty words, and kiddie games from Disney. Its an all around great console company.
    Nintendo delivers, again.

    Am I the only one who hates games with static, pre-rendered backgrounds? While the RE series had its share of scary moments the control scheme, jerky animation, and pretty but lifeless settings turned me away.
    I just downloaded the movie and this version has all those qualities. Blech.
    However, according to sales and reviews, I'm virtually alone in that opinion.

    While this is a huge blow to other systems and gamers a like, I will disagree by saying Nintendo is not a kiddie system anymore. RE 2 and Mortal were released on N64 but is and always will be a kiddie system. Exclusives, stupid, just plain stupid!

    This generation, it's definitely the exclusives that will differentiate the competition. This is a MAJOR coup for the Big "N" -- and it DOES eliminate a lot of the lame "kid system" argument that so many love to use.
    This may be a thorn in Sony's side, but it is a crushing blow to Microsoft.
