Project Resistance: hands-on TGS 2019 preview

Sep 16, 2019

Project Resistance was a surprise. Announced just a few days in advance of Tokyo Game Show, it was a welcome addition to what was shaping up to be a very limited selection of demos at Capcom. The initial announcement offered only the basic details. I understood the premise, but everything else was a mystery to me. This made for a nice change, going into a demo...

  Yakuza 7 is a departure from what came before. Series lead Kazuma Kiryu is out, to be replaced by another hard-man with a big heart, Ichiban Kasuga.

It’s been twenty years since I last played Resident Evil 2. Twenty years since I sold my Sega Saturn and games to fund the purchase of a PlayStation and a copy of RE2. A desperate act for a SEGA diehard, but I had to play the new RE. It was well worth it. Twenty years later, and Capcom are rebuilding RE2 from the ground up. It’s not a remaster; it’s an...
