The current movies are doing an outstanding job of being goofy and campy as all hell, though, so I don't think that would be needed.

I loved the 2 minute video from Red Letter Media of them watching the last (2nd to last?) RE movie. It's exactly how I felt watching that scene.

I started going through RE4 again trying to unlock all the cool stuff and realized I'm too old for that and used a mod to get them. Only advantage to playing on PC.

Would any of you recommend the 2 remake then? Full disclosure, I bought RE7 and was kinda not into it. Everything is way too scripted, you are given weapons but they are useless against like 90% of enemies which felt cheap, and the paths through the game are way too narrow.

RE2 is fantastic. REvitalized the genre for me.

That said those old keys can really put you into tricky situations as Chris. (Im so bad at remembering you need to pick those up so I end up making things really difficult)

The biggest change with Chris and keys is that you can't get the shotgun earlier - with Jill you can take the one in the trap room and Barry will save you, if you take it with Chris you get toasted.

If you route it right you don't even need to get that shotgun as Jill, you get both the grenade launcher from Forest and the assault shotgun from Richard anyways

E: Actually, I'd have to look at my little cheat sheet but iirc you don't need it as Chris either

Yeah that's not the "main" shotgun. I didn't even know there was an assault shotgun in REMake. I've only played it once, recently.

I really wish Konami would just sell the goddam Silent Hill license. Nothing but pachinko machines since Silent Hills got cancelled. Clearly there's a market for remakes, I actually heard a rumour the PS5 stream would reveal a new game and thought the VIII trailer was it.... While I'm happy it looks good, I was still angry. Even had a drat air raid siren.

I think I'd rather see HD remakes of Silent Hill 1-3 than a new game at this point, to be honest. 1-4 are four of my favorite games of all time, but the ones after that are all just...meh.

I dunno, something is better than nothing, as long as that something isn't pachinko.

Silent hill 1-3 is pretty expensive these days (well I guess if you can put up with it, the HD remasters from last generation would do in a pinch) oh and I think silent hill 1 is digitally available for psp/vita/ps3.

Still a remake Ala demons souls/shadow of the colossus with new graphics on the old game would be awesome.

Oh I have them all physically still. I just played through the SH2 Enhanced Edition on PC, which I can't recommend enough. It's a fan project but looks super professional.

Well, I've made some considerable progress in RE1: Director's Cut. The guardhouse portion was a little nervewracking at first, but I really started enjoying it. I am finding, though, that I do need to clear out enemies in most of the rooms, because trying to dodge past them isn't really viable because of how little space there is. Even in the rec room, which is relatively large, I ended up getting cornered behind the pool table by the giant spiders, and had to shoot my way out. Still, it seemed like I was relatively flush with ammo, healing items, and ink ribbons.

Two big annoyances: first is the inventory system. I'm playing as Jill, so I get an extra two spaces, but having to juggle items gets a little tedious. I know you can combine herbs, but I've tried to keep them separate for the most part, because I don't know if I'll need them for when I reach the endgame.

The only thing I wouldn't do is combine green herbs together (unless you're out of options). If you have a Green, Red and Blue herb there's almost no reason not to combine them to get the best healing/protection item. (One thing I had forgotten when I played RE2 and didn't remember until halfway through REmake was that adding the blue in not only removes poison but protects you from damage for a while)

Of course, you're not playing the game right if you don't hoard everything only to have a full item box at the end of the game

I've always been bad at FPS games, which is why I stayed away from RE7. I started playing it and am all in on the ambiance and story - how stingy is the game with ammo? I got to the first fight after you get your gun and....yeah, I'm going to be missing a lot.

If you like RE1's gameplay, sure. If not, move on.

Although Rebecca's death is the single funniest line delivery in RE1. And that's truly high praise

They just added RE7 to gamepass, maybe it has something to do with that? I might actually play RE7 now but I gotta be honest, it just does not look like any fun to me. Just slow, plodding movement and slow plodding enemies. Uh oh its winding up an attack! Better sidestep it! Seems like playing it outside of VR is going to be a waste of time.

I thought the same and waited until a few weeks ago to start playing it, but now I'm all in. A nice move away from the RE series becoming a shooter game.

If just move on to 2, but you'd better get comfy with that inventory system because lol it's gonna be there a while

Also my hot take is that if you're new to the series code veronica is worth at least checking out

I stopped playing the series when 3 came out (put about an hour into it and never went back). I got the RE2make in January and it got me jonesing. I played the REmake, then decided to do 4. After that I did Code Veronica - it was just too drat hard so I cheated and downloaded a save file that had the infinite magnum unlocked. Was still hard but made things a lot easier. Eff that poison moth hallway forever though.

RE7 question, without spoilers, how close am I to the end? I am currently playing as Mia on the ship, and just went through the video tape campaign and am chasing Eveline on the wrecked ship

I stupidly thought last night "Yay I escaped the house, I must be almost done, Just like RE2 was done when you escape the Police Station and Code Veronica was over when you escape the island! and ended up staying up waaaay too late.

Someone I grew up with had dino crisis, never played it myself I just remember that no one could ever beat it, they just got stuck and couldn't figure out what to do. That's like original Tomb Raider, when I couldn't seem to get past this certain level, it wouldn't end when it should have and even level skip code wouldn't make it advance

Man playing video games was hard before the interwebs. If it wasn't up on Gamefaqs, you were out of luck if you were stuck. One of the reasons I love the original Resident Evil 1 and 2 is because I figured them out by myself, and ended up getting so good at speed runs of 1 that I actually wrote a faq for it on my Windows 3.1 machine.

Personally, I'm halfway convinced at this point that if Silent Hill 2 was released for the first time today, as-is with the same plot, people would hate it.

One of my friends is a Buddhist chaplain and I've begged him for years to play SH2 because I wanted his insight. Once I discovered the SH2 Enhanced Edition project, we finally got around to play it. Sadly, it didn't really grip him like it did me, and it took me explaining what had happened in it. The game is still good, but man it's "locked door hallway" simulator.

I've been catching up on RE games this year (only played 1 and 2 back in the day) and when I got to CV I straight up said gently caress this and downloaded a memory card save to use with my PS2 emulator that had the infinite weapons. It was challenging to say the least.

Beat Madhouse mode in RE7, you guys were right, it wasn't that bad. I died a bunch, sure, but it really encouraged you to use everything the game gives you - in my initial playthrough on easy I very rarely blocked, and never used the separating agent to get chem fluid. That attic fight with Mia though....good god. And now I have to do it again since I didn't notice there's an achievement for getting all the coins in a single Madhouse run (especially infuriating since I ended with 29/33, but forgot to get the Sewer Gators one in the very beginning so I can't just grab an old save.

I wouldn't mind seeing a new Resident Evil game in the classic style, personally. Maybe it's nostalgia goggles, but there was just something special about it that the other Remakes don't quite capture, as much as I love RE2make dearly and think it is the best game of the year.

I just played through 7 and it really gave me the nostalgia vibes from the first two. I was turned off it for a while because of the first person but yeah, I started it a month or so ago and am on my fifth play through trying to get the Platinum trophy for it (goddam coins, should have looked for them in my original Madhouse run)
