My issue is just how much worse it is compared to his original one.
The mod community is going all out on this game. Mr X in a thong, DMX-songs, sexy Claire and Leon, Thomas the Tank Engine, Shaggy with a fucking grenade launcher. So much fun to see. What´s next? Borat and his green mankini?
I don’t remember the lab in the original. Could’ve swore you had to choose your weapons and leave the other for B run.
I don’t remember the lab in the original. Could’ve swore you had to choose your weapons and leave the other for B run. Claire’s B run seems 10 times eaiser than Leon’s A run.
Is it possible to get S rank by killing everything?
B is loads easier, you should be opening lockers and safes the instant you reach them now you know the codes.
I still say they fucked up removing the spiders. moths, and a lot of the transition locations. The original was like a road movie, the remake is basically station, sewers, lab.
That's kind of my problem with the game in general as it removes a lot with replacing it with anything.
And yeah the B game is a cakewalk.
The B run is easier but it didn’t feel that way to me the first time. Once you are sitting there with a guide open that has all the combinations and puzzle solutions, yeah the B run is a total cakewalk. That’s why they shave 30 minutes off the time needed to get a S rank.
So basically if you gonna go for the S rank, better to go with B scenario?
Game is awesome but as that kid that played the original back in the day many times, the one change im not a fan of is the Kendo shop. That beginning interaction, finding your first bullets and talking to the guy was so iconic and I was really thrown off when I realized Kendo shop was nowhere in sight in Leon A untill much later.
I havent played the free content story yet so Im sure they went for something more cinematic with Kendos daughter but whenever I think of RE2, Kendo shop is the first that comes to mind and that announcement voice.
Kendo is kind of a mixed bag. He loses a lot of his charm but having a more traditional zombie cliche make it in is kind of nice and it probably has the only decent character beat for Leon in the whole game. Pretty much all the characters in Leon's game are downgrades so Kendo ends up not faring that badly all things considered.
I'm getting a strong feeling you are letting fond memories and nostalgic feelings get the better of you. The characters and writing in general really wasn't that great in the original.
In the original the Kendo gun shop has two doors, one in the front and one in the back. They are both unlocked even though there are zombies right outside the front door and the guy only locks the front door after the player wanders in. And when the player does wander in, the guy points a pump action shotgun at Leon and bow gun at Claire, and cocks it making a pumping noise even with the bow gun. When he realizes the player is not a zombie HE COCKS THE GUN AGAIN. The whole scene is pretty stupid honestly, at least the shopkeeper changes attitude depending is it Leon or Claire and gets all "darling" and "babe" with Claire which is pretty funny. Now the rest of the characters Leon meets, the reporter is pretty much 1:1 to the original and Annette is way more fleshed out in the REmake, she is just a angry woman pointing a gun at you in the original. The only character downgrade I might agree on is Ada, she wasn't that annoying and over the top in the original.
Now one could argue the original is more charming because it wasn't all that well written and REmake is missing that charm, hell I love the first game because the dialog is so hilariously bad, but honestly I wouldn't start with the characters when talking about things the original might have done better.
As for Ben, the new one is just a really bland modern day reporter and not much like the old one at all.
Yup. It seems like mod scenes get flooded with low-tier reskins when the techniques get figured out, whereas more interesting (and high-effort) stuff takes considerably longer to happen if it does at all.Honestly, I wish modders would stop wasting time with the lame half naked cosmetics. We could have gotten an RE4 Agent Leon cosmetic or a Degeneration Claire by now. Or maybe something that impacts gameplay.
Capcom is selling all bonus content (weapons, LE-5, ATM-4 Rocketlauncher, Minigun, clothing, 4th survivor..) for 5€
I feel a little pissed, spent hours and nerves to get the platinum trophy.
