Capcom's beloved Resident Evil franchise has shifted further and further away from its survival-horror roots with each new entry in recent years. Capcom has been steadily introducing more action/shooter elements into the game in the hopes of widening the audience and attracting new players, but veteran fans of the series have been vocal about their disapproval. In response, Capcom is focusing on horror once again for Resident Evil VII: Biohazard, but they're still expecting strong sales. In a recent interview with MCV, one executive indicated that Capcom is shooting for 4 million sales on day one. Hit the jump for more.

A YouTuber named Seth Bling has created a contraption that lets you play fully-functioning Atari 2600 games in Minecraft. Surprisingly, Seth didn't use mods of any kind; his emulator was made entirely in Minecraft's Creative Mode, using assets that are available in the main game.

Although Seth's emulator can perfectly reproduce several games, including the Atari ports of Space Invaders and Donkey Kong, it does so very slowly: sixty frames of gameplay (one second's worth of gameplay on the original Atari) will take about four hours to load.
