Resident Evil HD Remake


DeathscytheX

In 2002, Capcom remade the PSX 1996 classic Resident Evil for the Gamecube with updated graphics, controls, and some extras. The series that defined the horror survival genre is now being upgraded to an HD format for next gen consoles and PC!

I'd be excited if I didn't prefer Resident Evil 2 over the original. I don't hate the first or anything. But I preferred the story with Claire Redfield in Raccoon City over STARS trapped in basically a haunted mansion.

 

In fact Resident Evil 2 is probably my most favorite zombie game. And it wasn't just because a city was facing a zombie apocalypse. But like other pre RE4 games it gave a sense of claustrophobia with the added fear of not knowing what was in front of you.

 

And to top that all off (minus giant robot) Claire Redfield's & Sherry Birkin's story kind of reminds of the movie Alien. Although those 2 basically still had their own stories with Claire Redfield looking for her brother & Sherry Birkin losing her parents.

I played the hell out of Resident Evil 1 and 2, and 2 was definitely my favorite also. RE2 was a much better game IMO. This HD remake will be good but I don't think I'll buy it because I already know the entire game in and out. Maybe they'll release DLC for it to change outfits or something, either way I look forward to this being on PS+ at some point.

 

I tried playing as Chris in RE1 and I quit playing as him rather quickly.. I think he had a stronger melee attack, but with Jill's 2 extra inventory spaces I always chose to play as Jill. I had to play the game on easy tho.. I never felt comfortable enough with the controls to play on normal considering how often you had to push a zombie and run on any other difficulty. I enjoyed having the excessive ammo in easy to blast every zombie in the game. :D I did have a friend that beat it on hard. He was the kind of person that memorized games so it could be accomplished. Watching him play it was ridiculous. He also played mega man to such extremes that he could beat those on any difficulty without dieing most of the time. A bit too OCD for me. :P

There was no real reason to be Chris. Not only did Jill have 2 more inventory slots. She has to shortcut to getting the shotgun, along with the Plant 42 in which Barry bailed you out each time. I liked the Gamecube remake adding in Barry's conflict with Wesker in more detail. The way he dies if he dies makes more since when its in your hand rather than taking a wrong path. It still baffles me how Everyone but Barry has received more roles in later sequels. Give me Resident Evil: The Barry Burton Files and I'm there.

I loved this intro, outside of the fact that the US version was censored to cut out Chris' smoking during his intro. XD

      I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      I'm sick of winter. This crap needs to end. Another day of driving on snow/ice covered roads in zero degree temps that are so cold the rock salt wont melt anything. Its like every road is made of gravel and my car is bouncing all over the place. At least the tall hill roads are getting treated with strong as hell rock salt of a different blend to ensure melting and to prevent accidents. But all other streets are complete ass to drive on.

      Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

      BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.
