Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 was released back in 1998 meaning that it’s a game that’s about 16 years old. What this also means is that as far as graphics are concerned, it does seem a little dated, which is why fans have been clamoring for a remake of the game. Capcom obliged fans with a remake of the original Resident Evil which was met with huge success and has stated that if there was enough demand, they might consider a remake of Resident Evil 2 as well.

While it remains to be seen if a remake of Resident Evil 2 will ever surface, a fan of the game and YouTuber, Rob Lima, has taken it upon himself to recreate certain portions of the game as a proof of concept to show that a remade version of the game could look like.

Mark Zuckerberg Tried Out Sonys Project Morpheus Before Acquiring Oculus VRBack in March, Facebook stole the headline for a couple of days when they announced their surprising acquisition of Oculus VR, the company behind the virtual reality headset, the Oculus Rift. However according to PlayStation marketing executive, Guy Longworth, it seems that prior to Mark Zuckerberg acquiring Oculus VR, he had requested for a tech demo of Sony’s own virtual reality headset, Project Morpheus.

That being said, we can only assume that Zuckerberg’s interest in Project Morpheus might be as simple as checking out the competition to see how far they have come, and to see what the Oculus Rift needs to be headed.

They believe that by doing so, it would deter smartphone theft since a dead phone is essentially a worthless chunk of plastic, glass, and metal. That being said a bill was recently introduced in the state of California that would make kill switches mandatory, but unfortunately it looks like the bill has failed to pass.

According to a report on CNET, it was reported that the bill failed to gain the majority of the votes. The bill required a minimum of 21 votes in its favor, but unfortunately lost with 19 votes saying yes, and 17 votes saying no.
