After Public Outcry, Capcom Adding Local Co-Op To Resident Evil

This might be the weirdest story I've reported on in a while. Capcom announced local co-op for Resident Evil: Revelations 2 on PC before saying it was a mistake.

The Hidden RPG Inside Resident Evil: Revelations 2

The first episode of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 wasn't very good. Maybe it'll get better, maybe not. What I didn't expect, however, was to be spending so many hours with the game's RPG-influenced Raid Mode. » 3/02/15 4:00pm 3/02/15 4:00pm

You can play split-screen co-op on the console versions of Resident Evil: Revelations 2 but not the PC version. It's not uncommon for games to have different features on other platforms, here's the problem: Capcom didn't appear to tell anyone until the game was about to launch. » 2/25/15 12:21pm 2/25/15 12:21pm
