Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 remake is coming along nicely, but as we move close to its January 25 release date, fans are beginning to wonder what could be next for the series. Seriously, we’re impatient. Will Capcom stop remaking RE games with 2? Are they willing to talk about what they have planned next? During our Gamescom exploits we set off to find out.

“We want to get this one out the door, and see how it goes first,” said director Kazunori Kadoi. “We’ve got a lot of fans who ask for their favorite games, but we’re not going to commit to anything right now. We’d like to keep our possibilities open for the future and see what makes the most sense when we come to it. We don’t want to feed just nostalgia. We want to bring [out] how people felt about the original games and if we can, reimagine it in a way so that it bridges the generation gap between people who played it 20 years ago and newcomers.”

No matter how many creative ways I found to asked them about their next project, Capcom never slipped up and revealed anything they weren’t supposed to. So if they aren’t going to talk about previous projects, would they talk about past ones? I asked them about the original RE remake and the NES game that spawned Resident Evil in the first place.

First Call Of Cthulhu Gameplay Trailer Puts Cthulhu On Speed Dial

First Call Of Cthulhu Gameplay Trailer Puts Cthulhu On Speed Dial

Focus Home Interactive has released the first gameplay trailer for Call of Cthulhu, the upcoming immersive sim based on the incredibly popular tabletop game of the same name. Check out the guided video below.

Call of Cthulhu actually has a rather strange and coincidental development history. The other day, we posted a video of another Lovecraftian title called The Sinking City. That game is being developed by Frogwares, who at one time was developing Call of Cthulhu, which was supposed to be similar to the Sherlock Holmes games Frogwares was known for. After two years with no real information, publisher Focus Home Interactive announced that Frogwares was no longer involved. Cyanide, the studio behind the stealth fantasy game Styx, had taken over.

Frogwares still wanted to make their Lovecraft game, so they pivoted to a more water-based title which they're self-publishing, so there's more Lovecraftian games than you can shake a stick at.

If you’re excited to have Blizzard’s blockbuster lootfest on your Switch, you’re not the only one. Nintendo worked closely with Blizzard to move Diablo III over to its portable system. In fact, Nintendo had practically been waiting for Blizzard to make the call.

“The Switch came out and we were all playing it,” says Blizzard associate producer Matthew Cederquist. “Some of us were playing Mario and some of us were playing Zelda, and we were kind of thinking to ourselves, ‘We’ve got a pretty good game for this.’ We all travel a lot and we were sitting on a plane and thinking, “We’ve got the perfect game for the Switch.’ So we brought the pitch to Nintendo and they said, ‘What have you guys been waiting for?’ They were pumped. They were as excited as us.”

However, Diablo III isn’t a small game. It’s currently over 14 GB on PC, which is almost half of the Switch’s internal memory, so Blizzard knew it would have to trim the game a bit to fit it on Nintendo’s portable system – not to mention optimize its processing power.

Biomutant Remains Impressively Odd, One Gamescom After Its Debut

Biomutant Remains Impressively Odd, One Gamescom After Its Debut

Just over a year ago, I saw Experiment 101’s Biomutant at its first Gamescom demo. I was immediately taken in by its oddball take on the open-world action-RPG, and I was looking forward to its 2018 release. Well, that planned release date has slipped into 2019, but my enthusiasm for the so-called post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable hasn’t waned. If anything, the demo I got during this year’s Gamescom has fully renewed that excitement.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Trailer Shows Off PC Features, Blackout Open Beta September 15

Call of Duty has had an up and down relationship with the PC gaming community, but Activision is hoping to make some overtures for Black Ops 4 by showing off the game's PC features.

In the trailer, which you can see below, ultrawide monitor support is confirmed by adjusting the aspect ratio on the game footage. The game also supports native 4K resolution and an uncapped framerate.

Additionally, the trailer confirms that the Blackout mode will be getting an open beta on PC on September 15. Preorders get access to the beta, which gives us the first glimpse at Call of Duty's take on the battle royale formula. Black Ops 4 joins Destiny 2 as one of the few non-Blizzard games on Battle.net, making it more of an Activision Blizzard launcher than just Blizzard itself at this point.
