Resident Evil 2 (Remake) Discussion
I'm sure a lot of you, like myself, have been secretly wishing for a truly great follow-up to the amazing Resident Evil 4. Nothing since then has quite hit that level.

Resident Evil 5 - Actually I liked it, but it was definitely not on the level of 4. Especially late in the game when it devolves to a weirdly controlled shooter. When I think of it as a multiplayer side game it feels like a neat experiment. But it's no 4.

Resident Evil 6 - Never played but I heard it sucked.

Resident Evil Revelations - Pretty fun, but kind of inconsistent. Some brilliance at times (especially during Jill parts), some mediocreness at times (especially during non-Jill parts.)

Resident Evil 7 - I'm playing it right now, it's really awesome, but it's not really much like 4 at all. More like old style Resident Evil reenvisioned in 1st person.

Other Resident Evil games - ???

So now we have the Resident Evil 2 remake. Realistically... it probably won't be the truly great follow-up to the amazing Resident Evil 4 I keep hoping will exist someday, but it does look like it is drawing inspiration from 4, especially in the camera and controls. Even if they go all out with the remake it will probably still feel more like a new take on the old style Resident Evil, being that it is based on old style Resident Evil, maybe something that feels a bit like 7 but with the controls of 4? But hey, anything even close to 4 is a good thing in my book.

Anyway here is the gameplay trailer:

And a walkthrough of the entire demo (spoilers I guess?!)

Looks sickkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk.

The puzzles in the old RE games really were nonsense, but their purpose was to encourage exploration and reading documents. In that way they were effective. I've played Sweet Home recently and it reminded me why I enjoyed the old-school RE games. The exploration really helps evoke the survival horror atmosphere as you wander around trying to piece everything together. The puzzles themselves are very meh.

I do hope the remake maintains the exploration aspect. While I love RE4, a remake of RE2 should harken back to the original.

I wasn't sure initially. REmake 1 is one of my absolute favorite games ever, and I really wanted this remake to be done in that style. I do feel that, ultimately, that would have been superior to what they are actually doing -- though I'm keeping an open mind and allowing Capcom the opportunity to prove me wrong.

But this does look awesome. Outside of the changes made to the camera, this is more or less checking off nearly everything that was on my RE2 remake wishlist. I've watched a playthrough of the demo, and I think I've seen enough and will wait for it to come out. I'm sold on it at this point, and feel like the potential is there for this to end up as one of the best RE games.

REmake was awesome but unfortunately I feel we're at a point where a game in that old RE style isn't viable for a big budget game anymore.

I am concerned that shifting to the post-RE4 controls and camera as one of the things that allowed the old RE games to be remotely threatening were the tank controls (see: how pathetically easy analog stick controls makes REmake). But so far the videos with the darkness, reliance on the flashlight, and tight corridor level design have alleviated those concerns for now.

Reviews are out

Apparently it is REALLY good.

Not surprised at all.

Easily gonna be one of my games of the generation.

Two days to go. Got my RE2 shirt all ready to wear. Can't wait.

It's not often that I'm envious of games on other systems. But today is one of those days...!
Posted: 01/24/19, 03:33:35
This weekend is gonna be good.

I don't see why this game couldn't come to the Switch. Based on nothing but feelings, I could see this coming as a late port.

It's not like RE doesn't appeal to the Nintendo audience.

I don't see any reason why the game couldn't be scaled down to the Switch. Look at all the other games that have made it there already. And this one doesn't appear to be particularly taxing.

We already have Doom Eternal and MK11 coming.

Bah, I already committed one day away this weekend so I'll be missing precious play time :(

I'll be getting my own copy to play on my base PS4 and pretty damn dated TV, but I figure the game looks and will be gorgeous enough as it is that I'll still really enjoy my experience. But my bros have a 4k and Pro at their place, so I'll probably be playing 2 files simultaneously.

But this is a game to play with headphones on full blast.

And man do I hope that this existing inspires Dead Space to get going again. Or at least for Glen Schofield to make a new horror IP.

Lol...I totally pre-ordered the standard edition and Amazon shipped me the deluxe edition. Bonus! Haha...

On my way to pick this up now.

Can't wait to play this late into the night with these headphones LOUD.

I could not put this game down. Said "next save point I'm going to bed" at least 3 or 4 times before finally stopping once I got to the sewers.

Hooo boy this game is something else.

This game is like a fucking RE FANTASY.

It's a dream come true.

This is the next RE4. Master fuckin piece and I've only just BEGUN!!

About an hour and a half in. Not really sure where I am in the grand scheme. Marvin has yet to go all Starvin' Marvin on me. Haven't been able to find the Club Key.

But damn is this game fun. Such an oppressive atmosphere. It reminds me of Outlast in a way with everything just being in shambles and who knows what lurking around the corner.

Though what did surprise me was how fast you get to the police station from the end of the Leon/Claire split up cutscene. Don't even get to meet Mr. Kendo.
Posted: 01/26/19, 22:24:17
Mr. Kendooooooooooo.

I'm sure he is in it, didn't they already announce DLC where you play as him or something?

I thought Kingdom Hearts III was supposed to come out yesterday, so in my disappointment I almost picked this up. Almost. It looks awesome.

I kind of feel like I'm "supposed" to play the remake of the remake of Resident Evil 1 first, but... I feel like experiencing the story in chronological order doesn't matter too much at this point. I get it, Wesker bad, zombies, I'm Leon or Chris or Claire or whoever. Unless there's more to it?

My first session was 6 hours. I couldn't put the game down til I was getting way too sleepy. Even while sleepy this game was blowing me away. The awesome just doesn't stop.

I love basically every little thing in this game. This game is very, very special and I think it's gonna influence many others to come.

It's almost a dream come true. Feels like an RE game I've fantasized about for years and years.
Posted: 01/26/19, 23:24:25
Poor Marvin. Poor, poor Marvin.

@Secret_Tunnel No, Wesker is good, he is trying to help mankind evolve or something.

Same. It's so satisfying.

I couldn't get any time in to play more tonight, and I'm really sad about that. Will have to make up for it tomorrow night!
