I'm playing RE2 Remake at the moment- with a walkthrough because I'm a complete fucking pussy.

 

I never realised Resident Evil games were so goofy to be honest, I always got the impression the early ones were the Exorcist of horror games with terrifying gameplay where you're relentlessly chased. Instead, I'm shooting zombies in the kneecaps because they're bullet sponges and don't die when you headshot them, and laughing as I run past them to spend half an hour running fetch quests to get a knife so I can slit some tape. And Mr X is stalking me, unless I go into a safe room where he's somehow not allowed in, or just dodge past him and pull a moonie before he can catch up.

 

Bizarre.


The remake is nothing like the originals tbf.  The only thing they share is characters.

Oh don't get me wrong, it's a great game and I'm really enjoying it. Comparing the new and old versions, while they've obviously changed a lot, there's actually also a bit that's the same or at least the same idea- some locations, monster types, the basic mechanics, parts of the plot, puzzles to get keys for locked areas etc. They've taken what was good and ditched what doesn't really work these days. So there's no annoying transitions (as you can load a lot more into memory), it's in proper 3D rather than pseudo-3D with a static rendered background, easier inventory management, more puzzle elements, Claire's a lot fitter etc. This is how remakes should be done really.

I am far more excited by the impending Slime Rancher 2 than I really ought to be. The first one was such a nice, fun, bright, cheerful, sunny, shiny game, and just the ticket when you need a break from mowing down waves of enemies and sniping heads off shoulders.

I really wish they would make a proper Olympics game  not that Tokyo sega shite but full on loads of events, Olympic gold style game. I dont play online games but as a kid we used to always be round each others houses playing Olympic gold games has one been made since the Internet connected consoles up.

I missed this that was shown during E3, only found it a bit ago after seeing someone mention it in a comment at nexus mods :

 

 

 

I found the first one a bit dull and fairly short too.

Surprised there hasn't been an International Track and Field game in years too. Used to really enjoy local 2 player on the PS1, hammering the buttons to try beating your mates' javelin record or something. Proper old school fun.

Yeah I found it short as well and some of the areas on the small side but liked playing it. There's two dlc's now that add more to the game too. I bought the base game a while back on pc (first played it on PS4) but not wanting to play it again until I have the dlc's to see what it's like with them added. Am too busy playing other stuff at the moment but will try and get them soon and give it another go.
