What is everyone's thoughts on this trailer?

I think it looks amazing to tell you the truth. Lots of changes kind of fit each character.

Kind of interested after what they did with 7, but at the same time thinking about doing what I did with 7 and waiting, then getting the deluxe edition when the price drops. Hoping it's not as much escort missions as it's looking.

 

Also in mourning that we won't get a SH 2 remake.

I actually didn't like RE7 for a couple reasons. Never was a fan of first person perspective in video games and even with the shaking or w/e they called it in the settings turned off... I still couldn't play the game for more than 10-15 minutes before feeling motion sickness and having to take a break just from the way the camera swirled when you moved around or adjusted the camera. In terms of gameplay in all of the Resident Evil games thus far, my favorite would definitely be Revelations 2. Luckily for me the RE2 remake seems to be taking on a lot of aspects of that game which have me even more excited to revisit the classic story lines. Shoot this even got me into replaying RE0 HD some last month lol.

Very interesting... Remakes can sometimes be iffy but this looks worth checking out

It one of the few remakes that I do find worthy enough to check out.

I actually haven't played the seventh one yet. Is it any good? It was something I thought about getting but waiting till like a Complete Edition came out or something along the lines down the road.

Picked up my pre-ordered copy from BestBuy today for PS4. It said I was suppose to get two exclusive weapons for preordering from Bestbuy but I apparently didn't. Don't see any mention of them anywhere. I didn't bother with spending $10 more for the Deluxe. I don't care about alternate costumes... so the only thing that interested me was possibly replaying later with the "classic soundtrack".

Looks amazing and feels much different than I expected. Only played a little today as Leon and he just moves very slowly. Even when you make him run, he only moves slightly faster than what you'd expect him to be during walking. They definitely wanted to make it less action-y and thus slowed the pace.

Zombies don't seem to want to go down. I head shot the first zombie in the gas station 7 times and he was still moving. With one bullet left I had to just run past everything instead of trying to fight. So much more reminiscent of older Resident Evil where you had to be sparing with ammo and not just kill everything that moves

So other than Koby, does anyone else think the game is good. I'm so afraid the game has been overhyped that it will not be able to meet expectations.

Okay I'll go cry in a corner now.

 

 

😅

 

Nah, but unfortunately I'm gonna be too busy to play anymore this weekend.

Sheesh, sorry Koby. I was just fishing for other opinions; review by consensus, before buying the game. Didn't mean to be so harsh to you.

 

I am super excited for the game and simultaneously super anxious that it would suck that I'm like a deer in the headlights about it.

I'm stuck.

Plus it's so new that there has been no reviews to qualitate the product. So yeah.. I'm boned.

I somehow forgot I had pre-ordered the game, my copy arrived yesterday and I'm probably gonna end up returning it.

 

Sadly don't have the time between catching up on Kingdom Hearts and starting the Devil May Cry series.

Been playing a little DmC in the last few months (Steam version). I beat Devil May Cry 1-3 back in the day and stalled out on the 4th. I'll play the 5th eventually, but it's not something I'm going to pre-order. I'll buy it when it hits a big sale for at least 50% off or more from the initial price.

 

Still have so many games I need to play but so little time. Gonna be a while before I'm ready to play KH3 because I still wanna play some of the side-games.... and yet I have many other games higher priority, such as Resident Evil 2 lol.

RE2 Remake has been a blast for me! I've always been a massive fan and the game takes the knowledge of the original game and throws it out the window. It is a fantastic game that I would recommend to anyone. Limited resources, close encounters, and the boss fights are amazing.

Beat Leon's campaign in about 7 hours.

 

It unlocked their classic costumes as an alternative and said I could play New Game 2nd Run with Claire. So guess that's next on the agenda.

 

Not sure what the difference is in playing a New Game as Claire or selecting the New Game 2nd run, but I suppose I'll eventually find out.

Since my last post, I've beat Claire's 1st run. As well as finished Leon's 2nd Run and the 4th Nightmare Extra where you play as Hunk.

 

So all that's left for me is Claire's 2nd Run before the new free DLC this Friday.

Leon's 2nd run was a bit different at the beginning as to how he ends up in the station and what order he goes through it, but then the sewers & lab was identical to the first run. The only difference after the station that I noticed anyways was that there was

Spoiler

an additional boss fight and another cutscene past where the 1st run ended.


Claire's 1st run and Leon's 2nd run were the ones considered canon in the original version. Although they kind of threw some parts into both that otherwise logically do not make the two fit together.

Like for example:
 

Spoiler

In Claire's 1st run Birkin takes out Tyrant earlier in the game, yet Leon still fights Tyrant in the end. And the fact that both Leon and Claire have to fight Birkin at the same point in the lab, which obviously wouldn't make sense if you merged the two runs into one coherent story.
