Because there's clearly just not enough ports of RE4.

lol

As if porting this thing to just about everything isn't hilarious enough, but they're now doing another PC version. Though I'm to believe the original PC port wasn't one of Capcom's finest. Still, this thing is on practically everything at this point, and just about everyone who's ever wanted to play this surely has. Though I guess having it easily accessible on one's steam library is perhaps incentive enough to entice a few folks. Also hot preorder bonuses.

I would imagine this is partly motivated as a means for Capcom to try and wipe away the stink surrounding Resident Evil, with their attempt to perhaps remind us all of the 'good old days' and all that. Frankly I'm also a little surprised that they didn't announce a PS4/X1 port along side it. Though there's still time...

Are you mad about this?

Oh, don't worry, I'm sure this version will make its way to the PS4 and Xbox One soon too. And then some versions will get onto the Vita and 3DS, and hell, even the Ouya while we're at it! Okay, not even Capcom is that crazy, never mind.

This is fantastic. The original PC version was such a pile of shit.

#8 Posted by RonGalaxy (3168 posts) -

Someone tell them to do something right for once and port revelations to vita. Also, do people who own the shit original pc port get this for free? If not, thats not cool capcom. Double dipping AINT RIGHT

Yeah, I don't see a problem here.

Resident Evil 4 wasn't on Steam before, right? And this is just a modern PC port of RE4 for $20? Sounds good to me, as I'm the last person on the planet who hasn't actually played it.

#11 Edited by Yummylee (21652 posts) -

@naru_joe93: I had to check for myself to make sure... Revelations not being on vita is rather odd, given that that too can be found on just about every other relevant console, even the Wii U!

#12 Posted by The_Nubster (2147 posts) -

Guys, Capcom is doing right by one of their most beloved franchises! LETS STRAIGHT-UP FUCKING MURDER THEM.

Really, I own the GC and Wii versions of this game, but I've since packed away both of those consoles to make room for new ones. Having this game on-hand at all times, properly ported and running smoothly is an amazing thing and I'm willing to drop another $20 on this game, given that all of those things hold true. As always, I'll wait for the reviews and see if there are any hang-ups, but this is nothing but a good thing.

@jjbsterling: There is no problem here, and I'm a little surprised that people seem to have interpreted my OP as me being pissed off or something. I'm merely commenting on how crazy it is that RE4 has had so many ports, that now it's being released on PC for the second time. I mean Hell, RE4 even somehow managed to make it over onto the iphone of all things.

#14 Posted by BigBoss1911 (2463 posts) -

Can't believe its been 10 fucking years since this game came out, wow.

#15 Edited by Ezekiel (451 posts) -

I'm very happy about this. Hopefully it's good this time. I have it for Gamecube, but I'd rather play it on my PC.

#16 Posted by RonGalaxy (3168 posts) -

Spoilers: Its a gamecube game being displayed at a higher resolution/framerate with no other HD enhancements done to it. Have fun everyone!

#17 Posted by TheRealMoot (380 posts) -

There will be a wii u version mark my words. Even if it's just the wii versions without waggle knife, it will happen.

In all respect, I love RE4. But enough please? Wait, didn't capcom just diss on RE fans? Is this like a follow up to that?

#18 Edited by TheManWithNoPlan (5513 posts) -

Dammit... I still need to play this game. Wait, is it coming to steam?

Edit: I checked and it is.

In widescreen at 60 fps, with the Ada mission many Gamecube owners never played, mouse and keyboard support and our choice of controller. I don't like setting up my consoles to play at 480i (Gamecube component cables are expensive.) and the Gamecube controller isn't very durable. The rubber came off my stick. The more I can do on one platform, the better.

#20 Edited by DonChipotle (2760 posts) -

Man, I always feel like a jerk when I admit this but I don't like RE4 much at all. But I guess fans of it can be happy?

Gamecube version didnt have widescreen support? The ps2 did...

#23 Posted by RazielCuts (2954 posts) -

Ha, I thought if the response was anything but 'OMG THIS IS THE BEST THING EVAAAH, THANK YOU BASED CAPCOM FOR THIS GRACIOUS GIFT' people would be furious.

It's nice to have but its just Capcom being Capcom, they didn't do this for you, fans of RE4, they did this for themselves. It's like the equivalent of Square releasing anything old Final Fantasy related and calling it 'new'. Anyway I guess I shouldn't begrudge anyone that will enjoy this but yeah as someone else said - 'I'll wait for the Resident Evil 4: HD Remix Hyper Combo Edition in another year or two.' /snark

#24 Edited by DonutFever (3551 posts) -

Still never played it, might pick this up.

So I guess this is aimed at me and like two other people? I feel pretty special.

#25 Posted by OneKillWonder_ (1746 posts) -

Great, I've always wanted to play this game in Ultimate HD.

Yes, but it looks worse than the Gamecube version.

#27 Posted by wewantsthering (1567 posts) -

I'm excited about this! Looks great! I've wanted to replay it!

#28 Posted by BeachThunder (11942 posts) -

Interesting. I might check this out, if only because I like Dead Space. I avoided the original because I heard that the PC version was literally filled with decomposing feces.

Also, does this game have any fixed camera sections? because fixed camera angles are up there with escort missions, quick-time events and underwater levels...

#29 Posted by chkdsk1991 (32 posts) -

Let's wait and see how good of a version this is...

Oh no, what ever am I to do with this information. To think I ever enjoyed the game on ps2. My life will never be the same

#32 Posted by JeanLuc (3584 posts) -

Well if it means there will finally be a good PC version of this game then I'm cool with it. That original port was garbage.

#33 Posted by wjb (1662 posts) -

So I bought it on PSN 2.5 years ago, played it to Del Lago, and never went back. Since I don't have much to play lately, I started playing it again from the start. Just got past Del Lago...again.

The surprise bum-rush of zombies coming from behind me is getting old. I don't remember that when I played it 9 years ago on GC. It's worse than Doom 3.

#34 Posted by TobbRobb (4649 posts) -

Well this is cool. I've been wanting to go back to it again for a little bit. And playing the old PC version with a keyboard was... Interesting. I actually somehow got good at aiming the floaty fucking guns with WASD. Surprisingly playable.

Isn't it kinda OK now, though? I've seen a lot of rather... creative mods going for it at least, so it certainly has a community. It's almost up there with the likes of Doom for how many reskin mods in particular that game has.

#36 Posted by Killercombo (225 posts) -

Never played it before.

#37 Posted by Humanity (9257 posts) -

I wish more games got this sort of treatment to be honest. Way too many good games just get put out to pasture.

#38 Posted by Demoskinos (14835 posts) -

This is a little pathetic honestly its akin to a sports star basically going "Hey, guys remember when I mattered and everyone thought I was the coolest thing ever! Lets relive my glory days!" And even though there were jokes I seriously do expect a RE4 Next Gen version. Especially if they are doing this PC version. porting that over to Ps4 would be minimal amount of work.

I didn't see this before, but it does say textures have been upgraded, naru_joe. It's probably pretty minor, but let's wait and see.

#41 Posted by johncallahan (566 posts) -

The more I think about it, RE4 might be my favorite game of all time. This will be the SEVENTH time I've bought this game.

You and me both buddy, though I don't think I'll be playing this one either.

#43 Posted by Schlorgan (216 posts) -

I'm pretty sure this is a late apology for the previous RE4 PC port. I accept, Capcom.

Not really. It's serviceable but a good port with real time cutscenes and native controller support would be most welcome as far as I'm concerned. Good games deserve to be played in the best conditions possible. I really don't think it's that crazy.

People will probably find a way to make the half-naked-anime-lady mods work on the new version. If not, they can still play the old one.

#45 Edited by Gantrathor (210 posts) -

This will be the 4th time I've bought this game....

#46 Posted by Hunter5024 (5686 posts) -

Honestly 20 dollars does seem a bit much.

#47 Posted by afabs515 (1082 posts) -

But! But! 60 FPS though!

All kidding aside, I'll pick it up after a month when it's like 5 bucks. The screenshots look fine.

Yep. That was the worst part about the 360 port, I was surprised there wasn't even an option. Just give me the RE5 controls and I'm a happy camper.

#49 Posted by Phatmac (5726 posts) -

Been meaning to play RE4 again. Guess I'll just get this.

#50 Posted by MormonWarrior (2593 posts) -

And I've bought at least three of the versions that exist because I'm clearly an idiot.

I freaking love the game, but man...GameCube original or bust.
