    Default PS4 | Resident Evil 2



    Release Date: 25 January, 2019

    We talked about this a bit in the E3 thread at the time, but this is a full remake of the game using the RE4 camera perspective. There are a heap of long gameplay videos up on youtube which you could use to spoil most of the game for yourself if you were so inclined. I will say that the game looks absolutely stunning and very atmospheric, although the audio seems quite poor.

    For anyone who might be on the fence, there's a 30 minute demo (i.e. literally time limited to 30 mins max, one time only) coming out this Friday (11 January, 2019):

    This is one great game, such a joy to play a classic without having to battle the controls.

    I'll be up for more. Bring on Nemesis and 4, may as well give us Dino Crisis too.


    Only issue I have is with the HDR, the second game after RDR2 where turning HDR off looks better and provides better black levels.

    As you can probably guess from Smajsí post, the 1-shot Demo is indeed up (7.9 GB).

    The demo is great. Graphics are brilliant while still feeling true to the atmosphere of the original game. The controls do feel great too, much better than I was expecting. My only criticisms are that the gunshots sound piss weak, and the Nathan Drake-style random quips for Leon donít really work. Pretty hard to fault the game though.

    Now I just need to figure out if I want to pick it up at launch. I have so many unplayed games as it is that itís probably smarter to wait until it hits the bargain bin... but I loved the original. If I wasnít picking up Ace Combat this week itíd be a much easier decision.

    Yeah the reviews are great! I still think Iíll probably wait to buy it though, I still have games I bought at launch that I havenít played yet (e.g. Doom) which are now on sale for $12 lol, so I might wait for RE2 Gold.

    I cut down my number of games recently, sold several disc games I have not played in awhile, and deleted a bunch of digital games.

    Now I have about a dozen, a couple of sport titles, some racing games, and now only 5 single-player games installed so I can enjoy them.

    I did this when I noticed that I booted up my PS4 and spent several minutes browsing through games without actually playing anything ha ha.

    Too much choice makes it hard to choose sometimes.



    Anyway, These Resident Evil games are pretty short ones, about 7 hours a play-through if I remember correctly.
    I will probably finish it by Xmas though ha.

    I took a zombie apart piece by piece, but in a scene reminiscent of The Black Knight in The Holy Grail, or the retribution of an ill advised late night kebab with questionable meat, it just kept on coming.

    No arms, no legs, still mouthing off, I should have stuffed a grenade in it's mouth ha ha ha.

    On Hardcore zombies are a real handful, better off slowing them down rather than going for the kill.
    The Lickers though, *unzipping sound* they can lick... my big boomstick!

    And they can open doors, no foolin', first time they did I nearly opened up inside my draws.


    It feels as good as playing the originals but damn if I don't feel Dead Space at times with the dismemberment. What a game Dead Space was.

    Has a nemesis lite to harass you too.

    Man this game has a strange issue, if you are playing in HDR you cannot save any video clips because the recording function of PS4 is blocked.

    SDR is not blocked.

    Had some great close calls and cool moments I couldn't capture, wish I knew before hmm.

    Game just keeps getting better! Sold extremely well, reviewed extremely well, and has free content coming Feb 15 - The Ghost Survivors.

    Three tales of others unfortunate enough to find themselves in Racoon City.

    If they add in some sort of co-op it might just be perfect.

    Mr X feels like an allegory for an unwanted woody in high-school.


    They both come at inopportune times.


    Both fluster your brain causing you to veer away from your intended destination to find a corner to hide in.


    Both take forever to go away, and just when you think they are gone, they pop right back up again to say hello.


    Also, when both are finally truly gone, you damn well miss 'em...ha ha ha.
