    I'm avoiding the demo myself, just going to wait for release, but I'm going into it under no illusions it will be anything other than more of the same. It's just a case of whether you got your fill of that kind of gameplay in 2 or not.

    Getting excited for this now. I played the demo for about 15 minutes but just felt I was spoiling it for myself so I deleted it.

    Started replaying RE2 instead, did Claire A and Leon B over the weekend during isolation on Hardcore. Going to do the reverse on Normal mode this week, should be more relaxing!

    Makes me wonder how they fucked up RE5 & 6 so badly while playing these. Just scale it all back, keep the RE4 control scheme, stick to the roots. By the end of RE6 I felt like I was playing something that resembled the awful movies more than the original games. Perhaps that's what they were going for.

    Anyway, next Friday can't come soon enough.

    Just had a quick 10 mins on the demo, will save it till I get the game proper.
    Fuck me, it's bloody gorgeous!

    The demo is only a tiny slice, I don't think it spoils anything. Plus I think they've set things up especially for this demo, which won't happen in the main game.

    Like I said earlier, my first play through was just over 9 minutes! You can just about eke out 30 mins if you explore everything.

    I donít know if Iíve got even worse at games in the last year (possible) or if thereís something different about the faster gameplay but this demo feels like itíll make for a way harder game than 2.

    I was regularly blindsided and mauled by zombies I missed and it felt like the run through the streets was a real danger.

    Looks gorgeous though. Canít wait to get stuck in proper.

    @simpleexplodingmaybe I think it will be harder and more constant threat and action oriented than the previous two games. I hope the dodge mechanic is a bit more forgiving too.

    What kind of performance issues were people having?

    I played on a two year old basic PS4 and there was no obvious slowdown or long load times

    I like the demo but Nemesis seems more of a twat than Mr X. Hopefully if you decided to shoot him, you get a reward like in the ps1 RE3. In 2 remake Mr X just taking a little rest was annoying if you where trying to do something

    Great demo (although it was over with quick). I like the dodge mechanic and with the lack of ammo around I think perfecting that is a must.

    I kept running from Nemesis, he didn't seem too bad to me (I suspect I will come to regret those words when I play the full game!).

    The demo on the X has a very dodgy framerate, not 60fps at all. I hope they change that decision.

    According to DF that seemed like an anomaly. Hope it gets fixed for X users though before launch.

    Yes, this may have already been fixed but it does look drop dead gorgeous, so hopefully itís old and theyíve fixed it. Thing is Japanese devs donít seem fussed about fr, see dark souls, bloodborne, ff15 for evidence of things like poor frame pacing etc going unfixed.

    Talking of gorgeous, Jill looks so much like Natalie Portman.

    @ChiefGB some folk are obsessed with it. As long as itís consistent and doesnít look like stop motion does it really matter

    I don't know it definitely makes a difference. They had the ps4 pro and X at 60fps for Resi 2, why not the same again?

    Just played the demo again for 1.5 hours!! :o

    Managed to get 17/20 of the bobble heads, couldn't find any more. Little tip, if you kill all the zombies, and don't pick up the hose, no more zombies spawn or respawn so you can wander the streets as much as you like!

    Lovely looking game, loads of detail (that you can take in without all the stress! :)

    The demo is a bit cheap in funnelling you towards certain events though - even though there are multiple routes through the city, once you collect that hose they 'lock' doors that you could previously walk through.

    Hope they don't do that too much in the main game as it could feel a bit unfair...

    I'm happy to wait. Always buy physical unless digital is dirt cheap.

    I bought a digital version of RE2: Remake from CDkeys I think. It wasn't dirt cheap but it was cheaper than the xbox store.

    I was going to go physical for this one but might grin and bear whatever outrageous price PSN is charging

    It's pretty expensive on PC too unless you go for CD keys or something.

    Am I right that there is no Digital Deluxe version for this game like RE2?

    That had guns and costumes thrown in with it.

    They donít seem to be doing that this time. There is a theme and costume with pre-orders but not as much as last time. I wonder if more costumes and weapons will be paid content when the game ships?
