The Drop: New PlayStation Games for January 22, 2019

Party like it’s 1998! Unfortunately, in this case it’s Leon S. Kennedy’s welcome party to the Raccoon City Police Department, and it was canceled on account of zombies. The long-awaited Resident Evil 2 remake shambles onto PS4 next weekend, set in the late ’90s just like the original PlayStation release.

Capcom announced the Resident Evil 2 remake way back in 2015, sparking years of anticipation with horror fans. The new take on the survival horror classic swaps the fixed camera angles of the original with a modern, over-the-shoulder camera evocative of the beloved Resident Evil 4. Now that the game is finally here… are you truly prepared to return to Raccoon City?

Sci-fi Adventure Eden-Tomorrow Gets Free PS VR Demo Today

The basic concept for Eden-Tomorrow was born several years ago, but as a realistic, fully CGI sci-fi movie. I knew that completing such a project was about as realistic as building my own space station, but that didn’t stop me from trying. We produced an elaborate trailer with the last of my own savings. The film wasn’t produced, but I couldn’t shake the idea.

A Closer Look at Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown’s PS VR Modes

Before actually boarding your fighter jet, the Project Aces team placed a tangible importance on convincing the player that you’re about to experience something wholly unique in an alternate reality.
