The total lack of direct association between Chris and Claire has always baffled me. The only game they're both in is CV, and they have something like two or three minutes of shared screentime. Even a full RE2 or RE3 style "intersecting protagonists" approach would probably have been pretty solid.
Yeah, CV leaves something to be desired on that front. Like, I was gonna say that Rev2 is the game with the strongest overlap between the RE1 and RE2 cast, because you play as both Claire and Barry, and hell, there's even a Wesker! And then I realized CV actually has the actual Wesker and an actual RE1 playable character. Except in CV it's more like two RE1 characters crash a game to trash talk each other, instead of Chris and Claire having any meaningful interaction.

I mean, those knights could be using "hi-tech" weaponry too. Like, if you set the game in the early renaissance you could have gun maces and different types of hand grenades, and I suppose more standard weaponry like crossbows, on top of whatever melee weapons you thought appropriate.

That's Leon, Chris always needed like heavy machine guns and a ton of people to help when he fought El Gigantes. Leon did it with a knife and a dog. Chris only has show muscles, not gently caress muscles. If you want to move a boulder Chris is your guy. If you want someone to mount a 20 foot tall behemoth and slam it into goo, you call Leon.

And he can take that power twink energy to the clubs and really clean up. Leon was having bare shirt duels with a Tyrant when he was a decade younger than Jake is, and canonically Claire was going after loving Birkin when younger than that. Jake is a small baby that must be protected from future game appearances.

e: I mean I guess he can show up in a Rev 3 with Sheva or something. He wasn't bad, he was just in a bad game.

I was gonna say that you couldn't have the two in the same region without every vehicle crashing, but I think maybe the troubles Jill have in RE3 are caused by the approaching Leon, since she has much more luck after he has left town - even a nuclear explosion isn't enough to crash that helicopter! A game where Jill and Leon are practically competing to do the most unreasonably death defying stunts could be interesting. As long as Jill rolls her eyes at Leon's one liners.

nah, they changed it up for this game, clear times are different than actual play times and barely anyone has figured that out yet, hence all the confusion. clear times dont take reloads/cutscenes/deaths/menus/maps into account, its purely there for speedrunners hence the weirdly low times. theres a reason you get two different play counters on your screen but people still think its total due to re tradition i guess. so it took sigher almost 5 hours, which is still on the shorter/rushy side.

I mean, there's really nothing else to do, the game is super linear, there's almost no backtracking a total of 3 puzzles or something; it's just corridor after corridor. I also didn't play the demo so I didn't breeze through that part of the game with prior knowledge. I made sure to try and pick up every item so all maps were completely blue (some things I left behind though since I didn't have space and it was something useless like Gunpowder) though I don't believe I opened every safe or locker. I combed over the game pretty well to make sure I "experienced" it all but there's not much there to really experience. I feel like this game will be better for the speed running aspect, with the dodge, higher number of zombies and harder difficulty to deal with trying to go fast.

Do new items get added to the shop, and how does the game dole out points? It said something about "completing challenges" but I'm not sure what challenges it's talking about. Right now I only have 7400~ points or so and I'm not sure what to get that would be most beneficial for the next run (which I guess will be for Achievement Hunting) but I want to be able to farm up points and poo poo to unlock everything. I feel like getting the Lockpick and Bolt Cutter would speed things up, but getting more storage right off the cuff would also be good.

That actually would explain a lot. I've seen a number of full first playthroughs around the place, Twitch and Youtube and such, and the actual video length tends to vary around six to eight hours-ish very consistently. The more people die in-game, the lower the clear time tends to be, which really makes sense if what happens is that they rarely save, die after searching around an area, and then do it much faster than normal the second time through.

The game features several car crashes, but instead of Leon just being unlucky it's Jill doing it deliberately.

At that point your first playthrough basically becomes a speedrun, even if not a highly refined one.
