Resident Evil 2 REmake (turning zombies into jam)


#4

It seems like a full price kind of game. It’s a complete remake, in a completely different game engine. Also, a lot of things seem to have been switched around from the original, much like the first REmake was. In fact, the first REmake was so enormously better that it’s probably the best remake ever made IMO, so let’s hope they still have the hang of it.

According to the article, typewriters and ink ribbons are optional. Double boo!

I don’t want to pay full price for this either…but I probably will. This was my 2nd favorite RE after RE 4 and this remake is looking incredible.

I hope it does well enough to justify an RE 3 remake.


#6

Those preorder DLC costumes are looking pretty good:


#7

The game I’m most looking forward to play in 2019. So hyped for this :)


#8

This remake looks phenomenal. I can’t wait to play it next month.

The one-shot demo is live on PSN and XBox Live. I played through the 30 minute demo on Xbox already. Over Christmas/New Years I took my PS4 to my parent’s place for everyone to play, so I need to get that back one of these days, and play through another 30 minutes now that I know where things are. I figure I can get farther into the demo the second time around.


#10

Huh, so you can only play the demo a single time for 30 minutes. That’s kind of annoying.

EDIT: The game is very dark, so moving around is terribly disorienting, even with a flashlight. Especially with a flashlight, since the glare creates a tunnel effect. I’ve had to use the map just to find out where I am inside the room I’m currently in. So that bit leaves a bad first impression.


#11

Of course, demo “speedruns” have already started.

Oh, so that really was the end of the demo. I wasn’t sure. So I guess I did finish it after all, with about 10 seconds to spare. Phew!


#12

Can’t wait for this. Looks good. Hope RE8 goes back to this perspective, was in no hurry to get 7 die to being 1st person.


#13

You know, from the way the demo starts in the police station, you’d think this is also the way the main game is going to start.

I hope they kept the first little segment on the street. That was pretty cool and the scariest part of the game IMO.


#14

I played the demo last night, had a lot of fun with it. I really like the updates to the controls, it would have been really difficult to go back to static camera angles and the whole “push up to go forward” control scheme. I’ll definitely be picking this up but probably down the road. Too much good stuff coming out in the next month or so.

Ahead of the remake releasing this week, Polygon has a feature about the original Resident Evil 2’s troubled development, including interviews with Shinji Mikami and Hideki Kamiya. A must read for fans for fans of the series!


#16

Eurogamer recommends it.


#17

Yeah, I think it’s going to be just fine.


#18

And watch RE8 be an open world action-fest with base building and featuring unlockable Capcom characters like Mega Man, Chun-Li, Dante and Phoenix Wright.


#19

I watched a few reviews and I think I’m going to have a hard time not grabbing this game this week. Every review I’ve read has just been glowing about how great the game is.

60 bucks for something I’ll only probably run through once for 15-20 hours is the only thing holding me back.


#20

Ya no I couldn’t resist. I may try and connect from NZ once my freaking 9:30 PM conference call ends. It’s 40 something on GMG btw.


#21

I’m watching Tom play this on his stream right now. I want to play this game. I can wait until after the deluge of big games coming out is over, but I definitely want to play this game.


#22

It’s absurd how stacked Q1 is. I hope publishers realize that I’ll be all out of money for the rest of the year after Resi 2, Sekiro, Devil May Cry 5, and Metro Exodus release.

Looking forward to jumping into the remake tonight. I remember renting the first one with a buddy when we were in primary school, and attempting to play through the game without a memory card - now that was scary!


#23

Only played a bit so far, but what I have seen is really well done. The lighting and sound is just awesome.
