    I fucking LOVED CV when I bought it for my dreamcast but haven't played it again since. Funnily enough I won that in my PS library as well but I'm too scared to fire it up as I want to keep my happy memories of it. I recall how amazing I thought it looked at the time, being all proper 3D, and with the excellent lighting.

    I completed it last year again. For the most part it is classic RE but the story is pretty weak. I think the nostalgia is more you get to play as Claire, then Chris.. and Wesker is involved. At the time that was pretty jaw dropping. Then you've got Steve.. yeah enough said about Steve.

    Also the end boss is proper BS. You try aiming that rocket launcher at the boss first try...

    I think CV suffers a lot from going full 3D. The environments are all pretty lifeless, ugly and mostly quite small.

    The story is the first big jump the series took into stupid over the top pantomime villainy too.

    And its the first without any really iconic moments.

    Iím glad Sony waggled their ďwe demand 3 numbered titles on PS1 cardĒ because this wouldíve been a very weak addition to the main series if released as intended

    RE4 is my favourite game of all time, clunky controls and all. I loved the cheesy b-movie plot. Haven't played any resi games since.

    Not sure what this one is supposed to be, the trailer didn't really do it for me.
    Bit surprising - going by the village demo, this feels the closest Resident Evil has felt to 4 since, well, 4. I've nto seen the trailer you refer to, mind.
    I looked at some gameplayfootage now and it seems you are right. That looked better than the trailer I saw. I got the faulty impression that it would all be inside a big old musty castle, but now I saw there will be varied settings.

    From the trailer and demo Iím guessing weíve had sight of at least three locations - the village, the castle, and some kind of mine(?).

    Iím going to assume at least one more outdoor location, plus whatever that Lord of the Rings looking altar and statues place is at the start of the trailer

    If the last section isn't an underground lab, is it even Resident Evil?

    No doubt it'll be shit, like all final sections of RE games.

    The game really needs a proper remaster as capcom have done the bare minimum to the port (like they did with RE4 on 360 and last gen consoles). The fog on the helicopter pad looks awful now and makes the boss fight harder due to the weapon you need to use

    Iíd be up for it getting a polish or even a full remake. Reimagine the loopier bits and get away from those Playmobil character models.

    I always hoped the R3make rumours were wrong and that we'd get Code Veremakea instead (sorry).
    Kind of still hoping that with the rumours of the RE4make surfacing.

    Yahtzee said on something last week that he thought the RE4make had been binned but ideas from it rolled into 8

    I assumed the RE4 remake turned out to be this VR one they announced the other day...

    The VR RE4 is not a remake, its just RE4 with VR stuff. I can't see the actual RE4 remake getting binned as its easy money for capcom. If they do remake 4, they need to do more rather than just remake it scene for scene or cut stuff out like they did with RE3

    This one feels nice and gothic. Iím quite keen on the whole witches and werewolves hammer horror vibe it has going on. But these arenít really games that feel part of canon anymore.

    Resi 4 remake is a thing there were leaked screenshots. The only difference is that it's been taken in-house Capcom after a milestone check. Essentially the outsourced studio, the same who made Resi 3 remake, were remaking 4 beat for beat and Capcom wanted to keep it in line with Resi 2 where some things were changed to keep the pacing up. Basically do not expect it till around the 2023 the earliest.

    Resi 8 was supposed to be something akin to Revelations, like a side project, but it was going so well that Capcom just made it a numbered edition.

    I know Iíve said its not one of my favourites but even if it was there are some sections that are so dated youíd have to remove them from a 4 remakr

    From what I've read they want to keep the remakes together with the same serious tone as the 2 and 3 so things like the walking Salazar statue would DEFINITELY be removed.

    I donít think anything Salazar related would fit the tone of 2 and 3. The castle, the catapult turret section, the statue, the insectoid monks, dressing as Napoleon.

    Part of what made 7 for me was there semi realistic setting and antagonist. Being chased by some werewolf doesn't hold the same threat as some Midwestern yokel with an axe. I appreciate the turn they're taking but I think the tension will suffer by there reduculous characters. Much like the end of 7.

    Actually just played through both village and castle, took 20mins apiece, wasn't as scary as the first demo. Only time I panicked was the 2nd encounter with the vampire lady. It was weird seeing the first demo locations in reverse. Had a proper sense of dread as I wormed my way into the cells.

    Really enjoyed castle, though it made me long for a remake of the first game in that style.

    Even though I thought it would be too scary, I'm actually pretty tempted now.

    Iíll be outraged if they remove a single beat from RE4, except for every QuickTime event.

    Id even keep the quicktime, sure they were awful on a first playthrough but I feel like they added something.

    Hopefully mine's about to ship too as they've taken the money. Going away next week so getting it a day early would be a nice bonus.
