The Resident Evil 2 remake is one of the best and scariest games of the year, so it seems only natural that a talented fan is looking to combine it with another one of the best games of the year – which is about scaring people, and being generally horrible. Yes, the untitular star of Untitled Goose Game will be invading Raccoon City in this Resident Evil 2 mod soon.

After a lot of middling years, Capcom has made a big comeback thanks to the quality of games like Monster Hunter World, Devil May Cry 5, and the Resident Evil 2 remake. That quality has translated to sales, too, and Capcom plans to capitalise on that kind of success by continuing to bring back series that we haven’t seen in a while.
Three months after the first trailer dropped, the team of modders behind the Dino Crisis remake has released its biggest trailer yet, and the first to show some real gameplay.
Capcom’s had a terrific resurgence with its last few releases, and one of the reasons why is the RE Engine. As the name implies, it’s the tech that was built to power Resident Evil 7, and more recently it’s been used to bring us the excellent Resident Evil 2 Remake and Devil May Cry V. Now the best-reviewed publisher of 2018 says it has plenty more on the way using RE Engine.
The Resident Evil 2 remake came out in January and it’s one of the best games of the year, so it’s natural that fans are hoping that other games in the series will get the full remake treatment – most notably the final game on the series on PlayStation 1, Resident Evil 3: Nemesis. While there’s no official confirmation as of yet that a Resident Evil 3 remake is in development, Capcom seems to be teasing something RE3-related on its social media channels.
Nobody can – or should – stop Games Done Quick from coming around again for its usual summer edition this year, and the organisers of the charity speedrun event have revealed the full list of runs to expect at SGDQ 2019. As always, there are plenty of familiar favourites and new additions this year, and loads of interesting titles will carry us through the week.
By all accounts, this year’s remake of Resident Evil 2 from Capcom has been enormously successful, and is one of the best games of the year so far. According to the publisher, it shipped over three million copies on all platforms in its first week alone, but we’re more interested in how Resident Evil 2 has sold on PC – especially how it compares, sales-wise, to the other Resident Evil games.
Mr. X is the best part of Resident Evil 2, but he’s so thoroughly captured the imagination of players that we can’t help but want to make changes. Like replacing his spooky musical cue with X Gon’ Give it to Ya, or turning him into Thomas the Tank Engine, or pulling that trenchcoat off to reveal a tiny thong underneath. The latest option is, perhaps, too extreme. We can now get rid of Mr. X entirely.
Mr. X is a pretty scary guy – he stalks the Raccoon City Police Department hunting down Leon and Claire in Resident Evil 2, and he’s nearly unstoppable in his pursuit. So how do you make this leathery, trenchcoat wearing menace even scarier? Swap him out with Thomas the Tank Engine, of course.
With the success of the Resident Evil 2 remake and the upcoming release of Doom Eternal, it would seem that 2019 is gearing up to be a pretty good year for gory 90s shooters. And with those two games in particular riding high, it’s of little surprise that one modder has brought them together.
