So as you can tell I'm pretty excited about the Resi 2 remake

Untitled

Actually, I never owned the second game - I played the demo that came with RE1: Directors Cut and didn't like it very much. The demo was harder than the end game ended up being, and it was hard enough getting through the first section to the gun shop. Also, there was no context, you were just plopped into a street next to a burning truck from a black screen. Back then, it wasn't a patch on Jilly, Chris, Barry, Wesker and a scary mansion.

But I did play it a fair amount at friends houses and although I don't know the game in side out I am very familiar with certain scenes and I did clear it at least once (Leon A, and Claire B scenarios) but I don't know it inside out.

I'm wondering if I should do a Vita play through in advance of the Remake dropping to refresh my memory. On the one hand, it might ruin some things that might be surprising in the remake as I've forgotten, but on the other hand it might be fun to be familiar with it again and spot all the inevitable differences they introduce in the new game.

Also, the game play footage on the remake looks DARK. I wonder if you move into brighter environments as you progress or if the torch is going to be your best friend for the entire game.

@kyleforrester87 i have the Dreamcast Version of RE2, it was my first Resi game and i loved it (the Dreamcast version even had an Easy Mode that gave you a UZI with unlimited ammo) so i'm really looking forward to the Remake and i'm glad it's using the Resi 4-6 style of gameplay and that they are mixing up the item and enemy locations

as for Dark yeah it's very dark but i imagine you will have brightness options, the other did

There was nothing wrong with the way FFXIII was, ALL the FF games before it were linear too they hid it better

@FullbringIchigo well, I won't crank up the brightness just to see better, if it's supposed to be dark I don't mind playing it like that. But still, I assume there will be brighter environments where you don't need to use your torch for whole sections.

Resi 2 on Dreamcast and N64.. just sounds wrong!! :')

@kyleforrester87 That's exactly what I'm doing. I need to get used to those awful controls again, though, I've already died a few times trying to escape the horde of zombies on the very beginning street.

Looking forward to it, never finished it the first time round, I will this time. Got to buy it day one, not only because it looks awesome but would like to encourage a RE3 Nemesis remake. Loved that game.

@ApostateMage If it is anything like the remake of the 1st game, there is the option to play with modern controls rather than old skool tank controls.

@JohnnyShoulder Yeah, it's the PSOne original on the Vita that I'm playing. On easy of course.

@JohnnyShoulder I won't have you calling the tank controls bad anyway, they were and still are awesome! Lol

I really struggled with the "modern" controls in the Resi 1 remake on PS4 to be honest.

@kyleforrester87 I've heard that off a few people. Apparently the modern controls do not suit the pace of the game.

EG put up a 20 minute gameplay video. Aoife Wilson playing who loves the series.

Looks like Resi 4 essentially. Over the shoulder view seems to work well, but does look like it could obscure things a bit in tighter areas.

Man, that's a fantastic cosplay! A lot of effort must have been put into that, not to mention, the various details on the costume itself.

@kyleforrester87 I don't like the older ones partially due to how they are structured (really didn't like the mansion in Resi 1) and partially because of the controls. I loved Resi 4 though since it felt more like a modern game and I might still play through the newer ones (like Revelations, 7 etc).

I am interested in the remake of Resi 2 and as long as it has better controls I might eventually buy it.
