@nessisonett Probably. Although it could end up with Troy Baker as Arthur and Nolan North as Lancelot. 😂

@Th3solution Just the thought of that has my eye twitching. More varied voices in games please! Especially when it comes to fantasy games, where everyone’s English, the posh characters sound like the Queen and the peasants are exclusively from Yorkshire.

Plumbing’s just Lego innit. Water Lego.

Trans rights are human rights.

@nessisonett 😂 Amen to that! Although the American equivalent is probably the fact that every quippy character has to sound like a dude-bro from California ripped straight from the MCU. I really like having new and varied VA’s in my games.

@Jimmer-jammer Did you play RE2 REmake? I decided to play it instead of Nioh 2 next, loving it so far. Got an op "build" with the infinite ammo for op weapons DLC pack. No infinite health items though. That would be too easy. Still gotta' survive!

@Yousef-
Yeah, I am loving RE2 REmake atm, but I was just thinking ahead and wondering if you could advise me as to what to play next from my Backlog, given that I have played a lot of Souls and action RPG games recently, and RE2 REmake is a welcome change from that. I could play RE4 REmake and then Silent Hill 2 Remake like I said in the Backlog Thread, but I'm keen to keep things fresh and I have other games like Death Stranding and Stray that could break things up a bit more before returning to the Souls action. Feel free to suggest other games based on what I've put in my backlog as well.

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN Alan wake feels like the most suitable thing to recommend based on your goals.

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN I have a real soft spot for the Resident Evil series and 2 remake is a blast. Glad to hear you’re enjoying it! They’re all very different, but the recent Remake run of 2, 3 and 4 are top notch. Do you plan on playing all of them?

@Jimmer-jammer Having a blast playing it myself!. No, as I've heard 2 & 4 are the best and 3 has some issues, so, yeah just 2 & 4.

Edit: You seem to have played just about everything out there man! If I mention something I've played or am interested in playing, I can bet that you will have at least some familiarity with it, Idk how you find the time, considering your commitments and artistic pursuits.

Edit II: Then again you did say lack of sleep was a factor, but, hey, even so, you must have been playing games since an early age to have covered that much ground.

Edit III: The good thing about this medium, though, is that considering the vast quantity of games out there, and coming out all the time, is that you can never really run out of stuff to play - I'm interested, though, have you ever found yourself without an option of a game that interests you at any time?

All the best!

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN if you want a more “technical” explanation behind RE3 remake’s quality as opposed to a “meta” one, I’m going to provide it for you with zero spoilers and zero intentions to influence your expectations. So here goes.

On a “raw” and more “technical” perspective. REmakw3 does not “suck” as a video game. If experience in isolation, it’s a fine game as is. Possibly a lot of fun and can be quite atmospheric.

The reason it might fail on a “meta” context has everything to do with some more in-depth knowledge of RE. not only did the game cut so much OG-RE3, but it can be argued it did very little to deviate from REmake2 in particular as well.

@Yousef- Very interesting. Thanks for sharing that knowledge. Also, I heard that the gore/scare factors were dialled down from 2 to 3 so less satisfying combat overall, even though I get that the combat is not really the point of these games RE4 etc. excepted.

On a sidenote, I recently read an article where they said that FromSoftware had reached a "threshold" of difficulty with SOTE and couldn't make the bosses any harder, so for the next game ,on a "meta" level, the people were saying they wanted them to do something different, like they did with Sekiro or Bloodborne. Thoughts on that?

What happened to everyone? It looks like we're only getting a few dozen forum posts a day. I remember when Push Square got well over a thousand posts a day.

@WiiWareWave Has nothing to do with Push Square, for me at least. It's just that I'm a little less excited about PlayStation and gaming in general. There are less big games coming out, especially first party, so there's less excitement and less to talk about.

Another, undeniable, thing is that I've become older. I now have to balance a 40 hour job with work in the house, and keeping up with family and friends all over the country. When I joined Push Square over 10 years ago I was still in school!

@WiiWareWave I've been spending my free time reading rather than gaming. I have plenty to play but the lure of a good book is far more exciting to me these days than gaming.

I still post in the "what are you reading?" forum. I still browse the site everyday for news and updates but not posting so much about games, will have to give some serious thought to whether I upgrade to Nintendo and Sony's next gen hardware. As I have a backlog not handy on Switch & PS5, but not really motivated to play anything. Hopefully that will change!

@BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN Oh, there’s plenty I haven’t played. I think it’s just a matter of our personal interests overlapping quite a bit, though I have been playing video games my entire life. It’s a medium I’ve always been extremely fond of and have often found myself defending its artistic merit. I even remember packing my PlayStation to school to showcase cutscenes from Metal Gear Solid for a school project. I’m pretty intentional with my playtime and find a half hour here and an hour there really add up! Glad to hear you’re enjoying Resident Evil!

I have noticed that on Nintendolife as well. Use to be I couldn't keep up with how many posts there was now I see a new post in the forums like every few hours. I think nowadays there is so many more ways to connect now, Facebook, Twitter, Discord, Instagram etc. That people don't need forums anymore. Alos alot of people are older now more responsibilities, work, family they just don't have time to sit and post on a forum board anymore. I maybe check it 2 to 3 times a day now compared to when I first joined where I would be on it constantly, but that's due to my work mainly.

Yousef-

I’m honestly a super low maintenance kinda person. So a low activity forum is essentially heaven to me. I have really bad social anxiety that’s probably incompatible with my extroverted personality, but due to the latter I still demand a stream of interactions. Just ones that aren’t super constant. I feel so much more relaxed about the current state of the four Hookshot sister websites because of the small, tight knit community where it feels like everyone knows each other and everyone is friendly to each other. To repeat a comment I mentioned a few weeks ago, I’ve lurked around here since 2015. I’ve discovered this website because of Robert’s Dynasty Warriors articles and felt really happy to see a website report on a game franchise I hold dearly and been playing for over two decades now. Not sure what else to say. I think I’m content with the way things are currently so long as the community remains alive and kicking.

  • Note: Not to ping BlAcK_SwOrDsMaN because I don’t wanna bother him but if you’re reading this, I’m going to respond to your comment very soon. I could not be very active today because I’ve had a nasty migraine, sleep deprivation and I also need to take my grandmother to the airport tomorrow. But at least I’ll be having a jolly good time with my old man. So everything is great and today I’ve also spent time visiting and rekindling my bonds with my mother and younger brother, so life been really great for me, in spite of the physical health and mental health issues I’ve been having, I can’t really complain.
