Not only Seb looks different than the last game , but Kidman as well , In TEW1 she had that fatigued stiff Tomboyish face look while in TEW2 her face looks like a model

Compare Julie in TEW1 look






With her TEW2 Look

Finished the first game last night, it's great for the most part but there's a few bits that just feel completely out of place: chapter 5, the bus section, underground garage boss, sewer boss, final boss.. Those are the things I want to see less of in 2

Loved the first one and planning a Day 1 for this. Haven't that the time to watch the streams that have been uploaded of TEW2 so far. But in the streams thread I saw people not being happy about TEW2 being TLoU-like with generic environments. What is the consensus on the game so far?

Kidman's face and voice are so much better in the first game compared to what we have seen so far. I don't think this will ruin my experience though.

So excited about this game.

Good to hear something about the PC version performance. Hope it runs well 1440p on a 1070. Interesting to see if reviewers will actually have their reviews ready for tomorrow.

It looks quite a bit more like TLOU then something like RE, but I don't find it offputting, I find the game/control improvements welcome. Might lose some points with people because it's switched from grimy spooky villages and mansions to a small town in the middle of crisis.

Hey everyone, this is Dusk Golem aka AestheticGamer. I have posted on NeoGAF since 2011, and have decided to resign.

I will still be around the internet, I go by AestheticGamer on YouTube, I make games on Steam as Yai Gameworks, and I plan to go by Dusk Golem on other forums. I'll be joining an off-set of the GAF community leaving to try other ventures like ResetEra (Official Twitter for that here: https://twitter.com/reseteraforum ). I hope some of you who read this may consider it, and I plan to try to expose more people to horror games in the years to come. Just not here.

Publishers have final say on pricing. Valve's recommendations are just that -- recommendations.

Fair enough especially The Marrow which I could easily see in RE games.

Yup, I asked them and they told me key is delivered day before release so for people who plan to unlock it early with VPN might need to wait or purchase elsewhere.

Honestly I'm not seeing that much difference other than her being much more polished model.
Besides this much better than what happened to Elena from Uncharted 2 to Uncharted 3.

I've seen people mentioning both Sebastian's daughter and and Ruvik in the build up, are these based on the dlc? Because I don't think there's anything in the main game that suggests either of them would feature?

Unless it's just because Sebastian hears the noise again as he's leaving the hospital at the end

Pretty sure Ruvik ain't in. Lily, Sebastian's daughter is the main motivating factor in TEW2, she didn't die and Mobius has her and made a STEM world around her, she's the core just like how Ruvik was in 1.

My only real concern now is the hub + sidequests... One thing I didn't like in TEW 1 was how some chapters went on too long. So one aspect I felt they could improve on was pacing and making a tighter experience, I hope this doesn't suffer from the same issues.

I know I can skip the side stuff btw, but even then my ocd will get the better of me and I'll want to see if there's a chance of good content there.

The actual sidequests have stories associated with them, which IMO makes them worth it. The other open world stuff is just like smaller events or ambushes when you get items/crafting stuff. Doesn't seem too annoying and it's not a huge open world either. When you get to main story parts the stuff is more focused.

but she isn't supposed to be a badass know-it-all Ada Wong and that's what I liked about her character.

In EW1 she is as puzzled and freaked-out as Seb und Joseph, even though she knows from the start what it's all about, and I like it that way. Ada Wong gives zero fucks about anything, fits her character, but I'd rather have Julie the way she is.

Dude, c'mon, the parallels to Ada are pretty obvious. Kidman is a super sexy secret agent spy woman that works for the bad guys, and everybody thinks she's bad too, but she secretly has a heart of gold. The first DLC starring her is also called "The Assignment", which is clearly a reference to "Assignment Ada" from RE4. As for her not being a know-it-all, well, she still knew more than everybody else in the first game, and at this point, I'd say she probably does know everything. I'd also be willing to bet that she knows Mobius will betray Seb at some point in TEW2, and is gonna save him, just like Ada saves Leon in RE4.. So yeah, she's definitely Ada 2.0. :p

Her Facial details might not changed that much , but it is her look style and expressions that is changed , I mean that in the first game she has more Fatigued eyes and face even in non-stress events , more Stiff , more sadness , More " Direct to the point" type of face While in this game based on the opening i saw she looks more relaxed with no more fatigue eyes and face like if she suddenly became a model , no more stiff face , no more sadness , and no More " Direct to the point" type of face , Other than the facials then based on the opening of the game her mouth and wordings also got bigger in contrast to her silent type of character in TEW1

I'm not complaining or anything about her new look and I also like her new look and it is great on its own but I just point out that she looks different than TEW1
