Today on Pashcast Episode #5, Pashford discusses the news that a Resident Evil 2 remake is underway, and cynically concludes most old school fans will be disappointed.
if RE 2 Make not Old School Survival Horror What the point make RE 2 Make ? Clearly,Main Audience is old school RE Fan (1,2,3,CV , Remake and 0) not modern Re fan (4 onward) PS.i don't mind they use real-time 3D environments like Dino Crisis 1 / RE:CV
It doesn't look like that to Capcom though. 4, 5 and 6 remain the best selling titles in the series. As far as Capcom are concerned, that's athe real indicator of what their fans want. They'll try to strike a happy medium, but I guarantee you they'll try to appeal to the action RE fans, who would appear to be the most lucrative and massive customer base.
They did that with the Resi 1 remake did they?! Must have missed these dramatic changes. Yeah but it also came out in 2014!!! (PS4/XBOX ONE) Same game so why is 2 now gonna be this completely new game it's completely illogical.
The REmake was made in 2002, before they saw the success of the action games. It also wasnt all that successful back then, being released only on the gamecube. That's a fallacious argument.
i mean Main Audience/Target RE 2 Make is old school RE Fan and Capcom know fans still want survivor-horror that why they make Revelations 1-2,Remaster Remake-0 and make RE 2 Make.
http://gematsu.com/2015/02/... Capcom took notice.
You're a fool if you think that it WON'T play like old survival horror. The main reason is because it's cheaper to make when compared to the high setpiece/high action games like RE4, RE5 and RE6
Lol at these Alarmist Articles...It'll be just as Resi 1 Remake is, and Resi 0 is going to be. That's exactly what I wanted and expected )
Lets just hope that RE2 will be great!
I hope they don't change the music too much
I hope that's not Chris' blood?!
Wrong game. "Who are you, what are you doing here?!" "Don't shoot, I'm a human..." That's better :)
I prefer Resident Evil 3: Nemesis remake .
I'm surprised they aren't remaking RE2 and RE3 as one game. They're both set around the same timeframe and feel so similar they might as well be two parts of one game.
Wouldn't be a bad idea I mean 2's not massive but 3 was really short my mate did it round my house first day we got it, I'd happily buy it (3) if it came with number 2 don't think I'm all that bothered about playing 3 tho prob my least favourite in the series but then that's just me 1,2, code Veronica X and 4 were the golden ones for me.
Nemesis chase in HD will give me nightmares.
Yes, yes, yes. RE3 and RECV were always my personal favorites.
Yeah because the Resi 1 remake threw out the old school horror and replaced it with a card game?! No it was the same as it was when it came out on Gamecube, can tweak and change a few things but they are not making a new resident evil 2 it's a remake and last I checked was one of the last and greatest survival horror games of its time. It'll be the same just modernised and Jazzed up but if you think you gonna get Resi 2 but made like 4/5/6... Good luck ;)
But the resi remake was made by the original resi directore in 2002, his passion for the franchise was fully present for development. This remake is being handled by the people who did a terrible job porting the gamecube remake to modern consoles. So I can understand peoples scepticisms. I'm sceptical myself, I don't expect it to go crazy action style like newer resident evils, but I also don't expect it to have the same love and care that the resi 1 remake got way back in 2002, it's just a job for the people doing this resi 2 remake.
"It's a painful Truth?!" What based on personal opinion but he says there's nothing in his eyes that says its gonna be survival horror?! What is this guy on later games no arguments have been action orientated (for the worse in my opinion) but how in gods earth is there any reason to think that Resident Evil 2 is gonna be this mad new game in the series that sits somewhere between 4-6 in how it plays?! Uh no! Clues in the title it's Resident Evil 2, story will be the same, graphics will be re done as they were in the GameCube version of Resi1 remake also the puzzles may change or alter slightly and sure they may tweak a few slight things but it'll be just like the Resi 1 remake which I understand (not got round to playing it yet) but from what I gather they have the older "tank" controls and a newer more agile set of controls, still generally the same tho not like one control scheme you can do this and that but in the modern version you can ride a bike and do a backflip?! It's still gonna be more or less the same great survival horror game it was back in the day just freshened up a bit but I don't how it's a painful truth that the series is gonna be more action based when there's absolutely not a single shred of evidence to suggest that they are just gonna change this game and completely flip the script, Resi 1 wasn't completely changed neither was 4 upon its re-releases neither was code Veronica x when it came out on 360's and what not it's gonna just be similar to this Resident Evil 0 they are doing but where this info that's it's just gonna turn into the next resident evil 6 is ridiculous. "Painful Truth" truth is based on Fact not fiction.
You're a fool if you think you know what the remake is going to be.
"you're a fool if you listen to podcasts about a game we don't know anything about"
What is up with insulting gamers in the headline?
"You’re A Fool If You Think The Resident Evil 2 Remake Will Be Old School Survival Horror" The only fool here is the one that wrote this article.
the RE2 remake will be like hd 1 and 0. the new buzz started with the relrelease of 1 and its success. after that success they are doing it again with 0 and now with 2. it will be fixed camera RE like its supposed o be.
No doubt it will be, they'd have their work cut out for them if they had to redesign the game entirely around an action play style. And it's painfully obvious these guys are not looking for a hard job, they'll take the easy route with this one. Same way they took the easy route with that terrible broken port to modern consoles of the gamecube remake. Of course it will be as enjoyable as resi 2 originally was, but it wont have the same thought and care put in to it as the resi 1 remake. Not by a long shot. Thats not to take anythign away from it, still a great remake to look forward to, just don't expect them to do to 2 what Shinji Mikami and co did to 1. I mean not only was the original creator behind it, but they made that passion project six years after the original was released, any ideas left to the side were still fresh in their head. This remake is coming from a team that did a lazy port, and its coming nearly 20 years after the original resi 2's release, who knows what has survived from the original pre-production notes and production assets. And in case people can't remember or didn't get every magazine with a resi 2 article back in the day, resi 2 used to be a completely different game with different characters before they scrapped it all and started over again. I wonder if any of that stuff left on the cutting room floor will make it in to resi 2 remake the same way stuff from resi 1's cuttting room floor made it in to resi 1 remake. (all of this is going off the knowledge that the team who ported RE1make to modern consoles are working on this remake, which I was led to believe is the case. Can anyone confirm that this is true? If not, then ignore everything I said above)
I'm starting to get really fed up with people having these articles posted with titles flat out insulting people reading. I'm pretty sure I get what you are trying to do(person deciding to write it that way in the first place), you want attention. You can shrug it off by pretending you are joking, but the thing is; for me it's making this site less fun to view. Keep doing it. I'm sure other people will appreciate if you continue to make this more of a hostile feeling site. Certainly doesn't make me feel welcomed.
A fool makes assumptions.
"You're happy? Let me tell you why you should be miserable..." Damn cynics.
