As you've surely noticed, the world is going to hell around us. Some new hideous disaster is befalling someone every day, Bieber's still effing famous (you may be Sorry, buddy boy, but I heard your latest slice of shite playing in a store this week and it ruined my whole day) and McDonalds doesn't sell that awesome fizzy fruit juice any more (Fruitizz was the business, I don't care what anyone says).

If the crazies haven't started painting the end is nigh on sandwich boards yet, you can be damn sure they're about to. So in the midst of all this terrible, I'll take any kind of good news. Anything at all. The upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake won't be a half-assed remaster, you say? Okay, I'll take that.

As we saw back in August, the second Evil is finally getting the remake treatment. Fans have been howling and gnashing their teeth for that for some years now, so that was cool already. But the question was, what were we talking here? One of those barely-different ‘remasters' everyone's churning out just now, or a true, balls-out remake like the Gamecube's legendary REmake?

It's that second one, apparently. Capcom Senior Marketing Director Stuart Turner hit Twitter to that effect, addressing rumors that this would be a look-ma-hd-textures rush job:

So that's good to know.
