Goat Simulator
Hop into a third-person perspective action game by developer/publisher Coffee Stain Studios where you assume the role of a goat and try to solve every problem by simply head butting it, which is a pretty good way to have some nonsensical fun.

Devil May Cry Comes to Nintendo Switch

Relive the adventure with legendary Dante as original Devil May Cry is coming to Nintendo Switch this summer.

Following release of Devil May Cry 5, many were asking whether or not the game would make it to Nintendo Switch and developer/publisher Capcom has now answered that by announcing Devil May Cry for next-gen Nintendo handheld.

Although DMC5 will not be making it to Switch just yet, original hack and slash action-adventure title of 2001 for PlayStation 2 platform is announced to arrive this summer and all we are waiting for now is an official release date.

Whereas DMC HD Collection came offering its original trilogy, Switch version would seemingly be a stand-alone game and that obviously make people wonder why releasing an average priced bundle in other platforms and release only one for Switch!

RELATED: God Eater 3 Coming to Nintendo Switch

Lately, Capcom has been porting Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, Onimusha: Warlords and Okami upon realizing its wide audience reach for their popular old-school games. Ports for Resident Evil 0, Resident Evil and Resident Evil 4 are to arrive later on May 21.

Nintendo platform has never had a Devil May Cry game so far and its upcoming Switch debut can lead to a possible future when Dante eventually joins roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, according to game director Hideaki Itsuno.

Capcom Teasing Resident Evil 3 Remake! Again!

Capcom has been teasing photos on twitter that clearly hint at a very possible remake of Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.

In an absolute knocking the ball out of the park move, developer/publisher Capcom has seen a smashing success with their recent release of Resident Evil 2 Remake that took newcomers and veterans back to roots of survival horror.

While playing as either Claire Redfield or Leon Kennedy in RE2Make, players enter Raccoon City Police Department at a very early point of their journey into zombie apocalypse and come to a massive hole on a wall even before Mr. X arrives.

With Claire standing next to it, Capcom posted a photo of that wrecked wall that clearly teasing of a stalker enemy.

While Claire and Leon were trying to get out of Raccoon City with little Sherry Birkin, Jill Valentine was looking for an escape as well but her attempts were to evade the titular tyrant monstrosity Nemesis rather than the city itself.

Since events from both RE2 and RE3 are set on Raccoon City, it shouldn't be a big surprise why they already added this part into an early installment. There are good chances for players to revisit similar areas from RE2Make into upcoming follow-up title.

They also posted another photo of Jill from Resident Evil HD Remaster only a day before, as someone is watching her under a bed. In both cases, she is a lead character in those games and a mysterious stalking foe is hinted heavily.

After RE2 Remake was officially revealed back at E3 2018, Capcom posted a photo of Nemesis on Twitter a month later on Friday the 13th, comparing to another stalking adversary Jason Voorhees, which led fans to believe it a tease to another remake.

RELATED: Resident Evil 8 New Development and Plot Rumors

Nemesis provided a unique kind of horror where protagonist character is constantly chased throughout the city blocks by an RPG-wielding unkillable monster, which is hell-bent on eradicating any and every living S.T.A.R.S. member.

According to Twitter leaks from reliable source EVIL VR back in January 2019, developers are currently working on Resident Evil 3 Remake and Resident Evil 8 but are very much interested in delivering RE3 before going back to origin of Eveline.

Created by Shinji Mikami who is responsible for the inception of fan-favorite Resident Evil, Dino Crisis also explored aspects of survival horror but players had to deal with menacing dinosaurs instead of zombified monsters chasing after them.

Series protagonist and U.S. Special Forces operative, Regina was one of the most popular female characters in video games back in 90's when the first game of the series was released and then followed by several installments in later years.

Just like original Resident Evil 2, Dino Crisis 2 would let players switching control between Regina and her new teammate Dylan Morton. However, the series sort of died with the release of Dino Crisis 3 in 2003 for awful camera angles and lack of enemy variation.

Wanting for a revival of the series, fans have been requesting Capcom for some time to bring back Regina through the remake of the franchise and now that RE2 has met with immense success, they are hopeful that the studio can do it right if they really want.

Regina mod is just a reskin of Claire Redfield with hair textures taken from Ada Wong character design of course. Appearance of Leon S. Kennedy are changed into her partner Dylan Morton but this one particularly took a little less work as it seems.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is solid statement of Capcom's capability of doing remake right but apparently; they do not have plans for a Dino Crisis reboot and the fan-made mod by Crazy Potato is the closest experience we can have to relive our nostalgia of the series.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Mod Adds Nemesis

A fan mod has introduced Resident Evil 3 villain Nemesis into Resident Evil 2 Remake by replacing Mr. X.

RE2 Remake builds everything from the ground up and overhauls a lot of aspect that received warm reception of fans. One such element was re-imagining of trench coat wearing stalking Tyrant enemy Mr. X, who now relentlessly pursues players upon seeing.

This certain trait has been unique to Resident Evil 3 boss character Nemesis, who is armed with a rocket launcher and constantly chases RE3 protagonist Jill Valentine throughout Raccoon City while also seeking out any remaining S.T.A.R.S. members to dispatch.

Now that Capcom has made Mr. X an unstoppable killing machine, he acts a lot like his successor Nemesis, who will stop at nothing from completing his objective and will not go down or stay down for long no matter how much firepower you pour in.

Since they both are now almost same in nature and are based to work in Raccoon City, a new mod by user ZERO has taken things to next level by replacing Mr. X of RE2 Remake with the Nemesis to get chased by for an entire campaign.

Of course, the modder has used a reskinned version of terrible Tyrant from RE2, which is why it looks slightly awful but the fear factor is right there in its presence and the moment you hear it saying "S.T.A.R.S." kicks the horror nostalgia right in.

After long requests from fans for years, a remake of Resident Evil 2 has finally become a reality on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Players now want a remake of Resident Evil 3, which according to reports are next in line before Capcom proceeds with Resident Evil 8.

After Capcom announced the remake back in 2015, they totally rebuild the game using their revolutionary RE Engine that helped creating Resident Evil 7. Series protagonist and fan favorite enemies received an overhaul in terms of AI and graphics.

One of the boss characters that returned in RE2Make is a trench coat wearing Tyrant creature T-00, going by the name of Mr. X and he has been made into a stuff of raw terror that was deployed into Raccoon City to retrieve a G-Virus sample and kill all survivors.

The moment you hear the sound of his stomping boots throughout the corridor or the hallway of R.P.D., you know that you are going to be in a whole world of trouble if you do not move immediately to hide from his sight before he locks on you.

Unlike the early rendition of the boss, 2019 remake version of Mr. X is a relentless stalker and virtually unstoppable. Even if you manage to momentarily take him down with a Flash Grenade or a couple of head-shots, he will get back to his boots right in.

Of course this doesn't assist you in killing zombies or give you some gameplay perks but the fear of encountering the character in any situation will come as less stressful than it used to be and makes him slightly less scary without nerfing his punches.

Adding DMX's "X Gon' Give It To Ya" as Mr. X theme song was originally inspired from a recently popular meme of Resident Evil 2 Remake where players were adding the track to videos of the boss character and fan communities have finally modded it into the game.
