I agree with all your points outside of Mr.X, zombies and difficulty. I personally thought they were a huge improvement over the original. I know you're just stating criticisms of how they could have been better I just meant in terms of what wasn't improved on the original. To me those were. EVERYTHING else though I couldn't agree more. I like the look of the lab to an extent but it felt a bit streamlined and lost it's grit.....I know the lab was supposed to be newer but it looks TOO futuristic.
The thing with Mr. X is he was an event in the original. It was fresh and new for RE. Now he's just a mild annoyance. It's not like Nemesis who's a real threat with the game structured around him which adds some immediacy to everything. Mr. X really needs to spawn in a room with Lickers to really matter.

Zombies were a joke in the original too but I'll still take learning enemy layouts and behavior patterns over just popping a few leg shots and running again and again. Dodging them was just more satisfying is all. REmake2 really only has handful of tricky jukes and the adaptive difficulty/leg shots makes them far less vital than they should be.

I mean OTS was bound to take away *some* of the threat to how enemies are dealt with. I still wouldn't consider it anywhere near as OP as something like RE4. My first playthrough I got dominated a lot but I learned quickly which is kinda how i felt with the old RE's to begin with. Mr.X was a threat when I first played through the remake but once I figured out how he worked it wasn't bad at all.

I still think the zombies in this are some of the best in the series in terms of how they work, how they animate, how they get destroyed with weapons, and I really loved how Mr.X was handled personally. Hearing his loud foot stomps as he looks for you in the RPD was very good for creating mood.... It's about as perfectly done a remake of a classic game is gonna get with a OTS camera. It could have still been better in all the ways that have been mentioned but still a solid game.

Those issues we're talking about is nowhere near as bad as some of the other things you mentioned that's wrong with the game.

Yeah, they're certainly smaller gripes compared to the rest.

Reason these mods look so good on Claire is coz her character model design by Capcom is extremely detailed and beautiful and same goes for Ada. In Japanese games woman looks beautiful unlike Western games. Female characters are mostly hideous in western games except TR games and then some Eastern European games. New Lara looks really good.


Imagine bikini mods for Kassandra or Elie. They will look hideous in bikini as their body structure is design keeping requirements of SJW group lol.

It's an awesome documentary/interview with the Directors of Resident Evil 2 and Devil May Cry 5.

This is great stuff. Came to my attention just recently.
Do they plan any DLCs for the end of this year, I was just wondering

This game is still my personal game of the year (until Death Stranding probably). Fuck, it is so good. I'm trying to finish up my achievements for it but the last one is kind of difficult (finish No Way Out).

Where the fuck is Ghost Survivors volume 2?
Meh, I'm not really a fan of volume 1 so no big loss here. They shouldn't have turned the DLC into a time attack sprint through gauntlet IMO. I was alright with having to do it for Hunks mode, but for every single Ghost Survivor? I would have loved some proper story content (an Ada Separate Ways style story, for example, would have been fantastic).
