Thanks a lot, guys! Specially, Miguel.

Resident Evil 2 Remake looks excellent and I like the over the shoulder camera, it makes the game much more atmospheric and actually scary. It really fits more than if it was the old style.

I hope this sells extremely well, or at least enough for Capcom to greenlight Resident Evil 3 Remake. Either way, thankfully, we don't have to wait long for RE2R.

Game looks freaking amazing. I had no idea they are going for realistic looking gore/dismemberment with that one.

And the release date is january, yep this will be my first 2019 game purchased.
Sdarts, i also hope it'll sell well, if it happens pretty much confirms RE3.

Yeah, please, give the same treatment to RE3, I adore that game. This one, of course, will be a day one purchase, it looks amazing, the RE I've always loved with action, puzzles and atmosphere.

Code Veronica also better be remade with this atmosphere but RE3, to me, is already next, it's a given. Since RE2 will be the fastest selling RE in history. RE7 renewed people's trust in the series to bring back quality horror. E3's reactions sealed that.

My only real grip with it not following 7's route of first person is that there will likely not be a VR version but never say never...

there's something about the visuals that make me think it might me. every texture across the board is low res. much like it was in RE7. now, i can't accept that the engine isn't capable of displaying high res textures. so i can only assume assets are being reduced so performance can be maintained and assets shared across standard and VR modes?

either that or the demo they've been showing is super unfinished and they haven't put in the high res assets yet?

I don't really know how texturing works but it could also be a to save memory to increase the texture variety.

A possibility, but other current gen engines don't seem to suffer the same thing. So maybe it is just a poor engine where textures are concerned. It's almost as if the games assets were never created with close OTS camera in mind.

The engine is more suited to high res normals than RBG textures, which in turn plays off of lighting, which makes sense given the game it was named for. They scan most stuff using photogrammetry, so that probably accounts for that low res digitised look. I noticed it on cloths and such, but then the detail on the faces and the gore are sharp.

It's not a massive step up, if at all, from RE7 either, so a VR mode could very well be a possibility. The only thing I have a doubt about that is because there doesn't seem to be a fixed FPS camera yet that uses the 3rd person model. Hopefully it is something they have planned, but if it was then Sony would have announced it. Having this a timed VR exclusive for PSVR would have been massive.

    nostradamus after Anniversary "remake" they just couldn't make a Tomb Raider 2/3/L.Rev on their own. (1 Day ago)

    nostradamus @Moonwalker: I give a *laughs* to Squenix for letting CD keep going at Tomb Raider after Eidos shit decision. They never knew how to go over it. when they did, they just re-tooled a preexisting game. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I am one of the rare cases that absolutely loved Rise of the Tomb Raider. And I give a fu to Square for taking CD away from it. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker real good reason. A good amount of weaponry but very few opportunities to really use them. Graphics great though. I did enjoy the tombs and exploration but I feel CD should have finished the trilogy. (1 Day ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Finishing Shadow of the Tomb Raider yesterday. Mixed bag. Lots of inconsistencies, weird design choices, forgettable story, balance between combat and exploration is BAD, skills system exists for no (1 Day ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @MrWhite: so what you are sayin'... they exacerbated the huge flaw of a SHIT/TIER concept for a rapped franchise. the game(s) were a TURD, and a 4/10 is being benelovent. CD should be stripped from TR (2 Days ago)
