    Resident Evil 4 (HD) Release on PC

    Hurray, proper release of the game on PC!

    Did you somehow miss Resident Evil 4? I mean, okay, the Gamecube wasn't the most popular console in the world, but it was ported to the PS2, which everyone had five of. And later to the Wii, which everyone had five more of.


    And then there was the recent Resident Evil 4 HD release for Xbox 360 and PS3, which I'm basically going to echo: Resident Evil 4 is still great, still a milestone in the medium. Maybe your mom never let you play it or you've only owned a Dreamcast, PC, and Game Boy Pocket for the last decade.


    Whether you want to atone or revisit it, Resident Evil 4 on Steam is a great destination.

    I still consider this one of the best games ever made. I must've beaten it at least 20 times since I began playing it on the PS2. I've done knife-runs and speed runs (getting one of the fastest records at 1 hour and 34 minutes). I bought it on the PS2, the PS3, and now I'm buying it again on the PC. I'm hoping there will be a few nice mods for it.

    Anyone else going to pick this up?

    Yeah there's nothing to be impressed over the texture changes, but the big factor is the proper engine and control support for the PC platform. It runs well, looks well (relatively), has proper mouse support, loads fast, etc.

    I am confused. So having mouse support for a PC game is now to be considered a bonus?

    The game was released nearly a decade ago on PC. It was a $#@!-tier port of the console versions. It ran and controlled badly. Aiming barely worked with the mouse, and the controller support was shoddy. This new version is proper.
