Loving the look of this. I think I played the original RE2 enough to get bored of it, so hopefully me experience with this game isn't affected by that. Hopefully it is different enough. I think perhaps the most important part in my view, the sense of a looming threat, will certainly be improved in this game. In the original, my imagination went wild, making those polygonal enemies more scary than they actually were. Can't wait to see what they do with the William Birkin character, with improved graphics, never mind everything else.

HOLD THE FUCKING PHONE!

YOU CAN FORTIFY LOCATIONS BY BOARDING UP WINDOWS AND OTHER OPTIONS WITH WOODEN BOARDS?!!!

AND SURVIVAL HORROR FOCUS. MUCH STRONGER ZOMBIES. LIMITED AMMO.


It looks incredible and I absolutely love that they maintained the feel and atmosphere of the original.

Can't wait for this.

The choice to insert the original soundtrack swap only as a bonus for the deluxe version left me a little perplexed. Capcom this time you bought me.

Digital pre-order bonus:
- Deluxe Weapon: 'Samurai Edge - Chris Model'
- Deluxe Weapon: 'Samurai Edge - Jill Model'
- Resident Evil 2 Special Theme

The Deluxe Edition contains the main game, along with the following items:
-Leon Costume: 'Arklay Sheriff'
-Leon Costume: 'Noir'
-Claire Costume: 'Military'
-Claire Costume: 'Noir'
-Claire Costume: 'Elza Walker'
-Deluxe Weapon: 'Samurai Edge - Albert Model'

I'm still quite impressed by how immediately on the ball you were with it!

One thing I recall from the original RE2, is that you could investigate either side of the police station first, and that doing so had consequences (eg: you had to do some things by X amount of time or whatever). Feel free to correct me if I am having a bad memory . TL;DR: I hope the gameplay isn't linear in this remake. This demo would suggest at least this part of the game is.

Otherwise, still looks awesome .

From what various play-testers have said, by the end of just this crafted demo, some people ended up with items that other players hadn't, and had obviously gone down less familiar routes than others who headed straight for the end. Some people didn't even discover about the wooden boards in their play-throughs. The devs have confirmed that if you board up certain areas, or don't in others, it could impact your traversal later on and how zombies will emerge in future within that area.

So yeah, I think there's a lot of evidence already that the gameplay isn't going to be completely linear.

I've not played RE2 in years, but I remember that if you took certain items in your Leon playthrough then they wouldn't be there for your Clare run. Though I could be remembering that wrong. In this remake, they have stated that it will be less an A/B scenario and that the two will have their own independent campaigns that will cross over at points. But yeah, with the care that they are putting into this, I think it's going to be really great gameplay.

Man, my first reaction to Claire's redesign, which seems to be somewhat common across the interwebs (only accelerated to the expected melodramatic degree) was something along the lines of "a-whaa?? that ain't look like Claire! Who dat? Why are her features so sharp and piercing?". I've watched the trailer (and the several other variations/alt clips that seem to be out there) several more times now, and I gotta say, I love it. It's different, but somehow more 'realistic', cinematic, actually looks like a girl of the age and background Claire is supposed to be (rather than a videogame 'adaptation' of that type of girl). Leon as well, but that somehow seemed less 'controversial'. In general, the way they seem to be taking these familiar settings and scenes and ratcheting the tension UP so everything seems like its about to burst is getting me pumped. If all goes well, this may be one of those games like "Silent Hill 2" where I'm loving it, but can only play it in 30-minute bursts due to the psychological stress it induces.
