Game: New Resident Evil 3 Remake

In case you hadn’t heard, Resident Evil 3‘s long-awaited return is officially happening.

Akin to this year’s fantastic Resident Evil 2, Capcom has confirmed plans to follow up one of 2019’s best games with yet another gorgeous-looking remake. A retelling of Jill Valentine’s nightmarish struggle to escape Raccoon City in its final hours is scheduled to arrive in spring 2020 and, judging purely on the initial trailers we’ve seen so far, fans of the survival horror franchise are in for a treat come release day.

Clearly confident in the quality of its upcoming installment, Capcom has wasted no time in sharing further details for the title, including a first-look at gameplay. The footage, while admittedly brief, can be seen above and, besides providing another look at the zombie-infested city, reveals the return of a popular feature.

The players will, once again, be able to outwit the mutated Tyrant but have a number of tools – besides running – available to help them do so. Just more proof that Capcom knows exactly what it’s doing with these revisits, then, and we can’t wait to see more over the coming months.

Resident Evil 3 releases April 3rd for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Gaming faces is #MeToo moment

Game developers are highlighting sexual harassment in the industry after several people accused colleagues and peers of assault and abuse. Many women came forward and shared their experiences online, after a developer posted a blog alleging she was raped by a colleague.

The allegations cannot be detailed for legal reasons. But the wave of posts has been compared to the “me too” movement, which exposed harassment in the film industry.

“Video games are having a #metoo moment. The toxicity from fans has been well documented for years but the toxic, abusive, predatory behavior between developers has mostly been spoken in whispers between trusted friends,” said media critic and writer Anita Sarkeesian.

“I’m in awe of the bravery of those who have spoken up today.” The “me too” movement took off after a number of women accused film executive Harvey Weinstein of sexual harassment, abuse or rape. Mr Weinstein denies the charges.

#TimesUp

The current wave of allegations from within the games industry started on Monday after one developer posted a detailed account of rape and abusive behavior by a former colleague. It was followed by several accounts of sexual harassment from other developers.

Many women described being groped or grabbed at industry networking events. Others said men had tried to lure them to hotel rooms with the promise of work opportunities or collaborations. Some of the accounts detail long periods of emotional manipulation and abuse by senior colleagues.

Many of those posting said they felt “dehumanized” by the experiences, which had a lasting effect on their mental health. The allegations have been made shortly before the Pax West gaming conference, which will see thousands of indie game developers head to Seattle, Washington, on 30 August.

The “Times Up” campaign group, which fights sexual harassment, called the actions described in the posts as “disturbing” and “unconscionable”. “This should be a moment of reckoning for the industry. This culture of sexual harassment, gas-lighting and retaliation cannot go on any longer,” the group said.
