Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 scored a surprise and took the Best of Show award in the prestigious Game Critics Awards for the best games of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3). It’s a surprise in part because Resident Evil 2 (a remake of the classic 1998 survival horror game) had three nominations from the group of game critics, while Electronic Arts’ Anthem had five nominations and From Software’s/Activision’s Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice had four nominations. I was one of a few dozen judges again.

Biohazard 7 Resident Evil Cloud Version (yes) works by streaming the game from Capcom's servers to your Switch — the same way cloud gaming services like PlayStation Now and GeForce Now operate. The game will be released on Thursday and costs 2,000 yen ($18) for a 180-day “ticket;” there'll also be a free 15-minute demo. The cloud version includes all the game's DLC, and since it'll presumably be running on high-end PCs, it should end up looking better than the Switch hardware would be able to handle — at least if you have a good enough connection. On the other hand, you're obviously going to have a tough time playing this version outside of the house, which would be one of the main reasons to want a Switch … [Read more...] about Capcom is bringing Resident Evil 7 to Switch… by streaming it
