If not that then I'd love to see a Dying Light/Disney World crossover with Kyle getting increasingly sick of parkouring around attractions and hitting undead pirates in the face with burning candyfloss

The Surge 1 had a DLC expansion that is basically exactly this, so if you really want to play a game like that, it's around.

They kinda did this for Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

I miss that franchise. Dead Rising 2 was good, and it was going places. It could have been great.

They really screwed up Resident Evil 3's story with the changes they've made for the Remake. Bummer, it's my favourite and the opening few minutes are really promising.

None of that is true.

There are a few locked doors/ side areas in the city streets as seen in the demo. Once you leave there it is basically corridors until the hospital.

yeah the game might as well be on rails, the most freedom you really get to explore is the part the demo takes place in

Ah, man. That sucks.

My favorite thing to do with a new RE title is to go incredibly slow my first time and really soak in everything. Search it all, walk slow, read everything and all that. This sounds like one big chase scene. My Amazon order got hung up because I forgot to pay my card and, so far, it LOOKS like me payment went through but it still hasn't shipped so maybe I can cancel it and pick up Dead Space on the cheap instead and wait for this to be discounted.

I've been avoiding spoilers but everything I've heard/read about this game doesn't seem like what I want from a RE game at ALL and I think I'd have more fun revisiting my RE7 fresh run from 4 months ago and remembering what I forgot. Or finishing Alien Isolation. I don't mind those moments of feeling frantic, panicking and chased but I love the exploration and digging through nooks and crannies which it doesn't seem like this game offers at all.

Extremely little. Generally whatever you need is directly forward on your path and once you go through an area it gets closed off so you won't be returning.

isnt that like, exactly the same as the original? RE3 was crazy linear. i mean hoping they would open it up for the remake is valid but the original was basically on rails too

Resident Evil 3 was divided into 2 big sections which were separated by a point of no return, but while you were in a given section, you basically had free run of the place. With some given exceptions, of course - you couldn't exactly return to the gas station after you blew it sky high. By and large, although it was a very linear experience, it didn't usually make a point of locking you out of places.

I'm kind of miffed that you can't preload Resident Evil 3 RM on Steam if you preordered. I have slow internet (10mbps) so it's going to take half a day just to download. I am working from home due to the pandemic so I can't even start the download until I'm sleeping

What's the status on burning zombies in RE3make? I always thought it was a shame that RE2make came up with such a great-looking flame effect and only ever used it in a single place that you can even miss without ever encountering them at all, if you don't go back there at a particular time. It was really weird that they didn't use it as a possible effect caused by the flamethrower or grenade launcher, either.

Simultaneous development, more time, and the release of their sister game a year earlier really should've seen more improvements. Still looks good, and I'm looking forward to the download finishing, but disappointing. At least Jill's great.

Once you finish the game once you unlock the ability to buy cheat items. It's a whole lot easier not to die if you' lugging in an infinite ammo rocket launcher or regenerating health.

So those coins are actually really powerful? I'd figured those would mean you can't get S rank.

Is there S+, on that note?

I wonder how good is that one that expands the Dodge window, and if you can use unlocks to unlock other unlocks.

Im downloading the game now. But I am sorta dissapointed in the lack of back tracking. I mean its a terrible game mechanic but it can be fun if implemented skillfully.

When bored I clear all of RE1 RE2, and then walk around the rest of the game just to take a look around without enemies, and soak in the atmosphere. The Umbrella lab is yelling about self destruct sequence meanwhile Im in the RPD lobby or walking around a mansion dining room.

The coins are extremely powerful. You get two of each which stack. I don't believe they limit your score.

Also the STARS manual which boosts perfect dodge frames is top notch.

I might bet a prob for this but Im going to say it, since the developers did it.

The spider section is just anime BDSM: choking, deepthroating. I think its kinda gross and unnecessary.

They grab Jill, choke Jill, and then shove something down her throat. Its something out an 80s shock film.

another edit: Alien was basically subtextual rape horror, this is section of the game is just gross in the literal sense.
