[Happy Birthday!] Resident Evil – Code: Veronica


Hello old games lovers,

Today we celebrate the 20th anniversary of Resident Evil – Code: Veronica, first outing of the greatest survival horror saga outside its “homeland”, the PlayStation, released today, February 3rd, 2000. Initially Code: Veronica had to be a Dreamcast-exclusive but giving its success (it’s still one of the best selling Dreamcast games), it was converted also for PS2 as Code: Veronica X. It’s the longest episode of thje series and, although RE was switching to a mix between survival and first person action (check the mervellous Resident Evil 4), Code: Veronica, albeit a step backwards in the series, it’s a very enjoyable game and it still has its charm, even though some fans blame it for being sometimes not too much “Resident” and for some absurd situations. But I don’t give a damnd about it and I still play it, especially today!


Ciao a tutti retroamici,

Oggi festeggiamo il ventesimo anniversario di Resident Evil – Code: Veronica, prima incursione della più grande saga survival horror al di fuori della sua “casa natale”, la PlayStation, rilasciato oggi, il 3 Febbraio, 2000. Inizialmente Code: Veronica doveva essere un’esclusiva Dreamcast ma, visto il successo (è tuttora uno dei giochi più venduti per la console), fu convertito anche per PS2 come Code: Veronica X. E’ l’episodio più lungo della serie e sebbene RE stava viranto più verso il genere action in prima persona (basti vedere lo splendido Resident Evil 4), Code: Veronica, pur rappresentando un passo indietro, è un gioco estremamente godibile e ancor oggi ha il suo fascino sebbene molti fan lo critichino per situazioni poco “Resident” e per l’inclusione di parecchie assurdità. Ma a me non frega nulla e me lo gioco ancora, specie oggi!
