While I’m not a big survival horror fan, and have only played a couple of Resident Evil games briefly, there was no denying that the recently released Resident Evil 2 remake looked pretty awesome. Watching a couple of videos of it on YouTube I was introduced to an intimidating character called Mr. X, someone fans of the series are very familiar with.
Mr. X, also known as T-00, is part of the Tyrant T-103 series of superhuman “bio-organic weapons” produced using clones of the T-102 series which were altered. In the Resident Evil 2 remake, he’s basically a giant, murderous Mr. Freeze dressed like Humphrey Bogart at the end of Casablanca who relentlessly pursues the player. Modders immediately began having fun with the character, replacing him with various things. One such modder figured out a way to make him even more terrifying, by replacing him with none other than Friday the 13th‘s own Jason Voorhees.

Less than one year ago we were seeing trailers for the latest and supposed final Resident Evil movie. The sixth in the franchise, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter hit theaters just a handful of months ago. The franchise did not stay retired long.
Constantin Film is reportedly developing a reboot of the franchise. Who will star in the reboot, writer and director, and whether it will follow the same characters and stories has not yet been revealed.
A trailer was premiered during E3 2016 for the next game in the Resident Evil franchise, titled Resident Evil 7: Biohazard.
This is a legendary third-person survival horror series, so you can imagine some mega-fans’ shock to discover that this latest entry is actually a first-person game. One reason for this could be because developer and publisher Capcom wanted to capitalize on the hunger for first-person horror after seeing the public’s response and subsequent devastation over the announcement and eventual cancellation of Konami’s P.T. demo, AKA Silent Hills from Hideo Kojima. Another definite reason is because of the rise of virtual reality. Resident Evil 7 will have an included mode that allows you to play the game using PlayStation VR.
