Today's is another in-universe writing piece for those outbreak fans ;)
Pardon the late share; today is an informative
I've seen couple of pictures showing that RE2 PS4 disc is released in europe somewhere... I even heared from a dealer in Iran that the game was available in market for about two weaks before announced release date! What the hell is happenning out there?!
Today's community post is a puzzle! It may be easier to work on this while on desktop, but give it a try!
Today is the second part of Marvin's Diary
Today's post is about the EX-files from the N64 port of Resident Evil 2
Today is another prompt. Feel free to respond as well.
While a game can be a memorable overall experience, some moments stand out and leave an impression on players for years. What was your favorite moment in Resident Evil 2 and why?
Birkin, my god is he a iconic monster, that music is absolutly spine chilling"
Admittedly probably Birkin, but also in general the giant gator, that mofo was huge and it was pretty damn intimidating to see.
I love the true ending the most. It has so much drama and energy that it's really worth playing through both scenarios to see.
When mr.x bursts in i felt helpless and alone and that's all i can really say he was an awesome prototype to the nemesis
Oddly enough, my favorite bit of the original game is the intro and the gauntlet through the city streets, While in the grand scheme of things it really isn’t significant at all and technically there are plenty other parts that are better, this is the part that establishes the setting and always permeates in the back of your imagination as you play - something I love to obsess over.
As inconsequential as it may seem, when Kendo gets eaten alive by the zombies overrunning his shop. When I first played the game as a kid, it always stuck to me as being one of the most memorable part of the game, simply because it was an incredibly strong tone-setter: You get thrown immediately in a situation where you have to escape zombies after a car crash, and finally find a safe place where you can take a breather and gather yourself, with a friendly NPC armed with a shotgun to help you, only to shatter your sense of security by having him get killed the moment after.
My favourite moment is probably the cutscene where Annette recalls how the virus broke out with Birkin injecting himself and all. I found it kind of cool I guess. Later on, I came to appreciate how the developers utalised the whole sewers area as a device to tell the story of the outbreak especially after so many unsatisfying reworks of that section.
Today's post is written by me =)
Part 2 of the beta backgrounds
Today is another community post, don't forget everyone is welcome to respond to the prompt!
Resident Evil 2 came out in 1998 which is clearly a long time ago. Some of us remember playing when it was still new and other picked it up after hearing about how renown it is. Needless to say, in whichever conditions you first played it, it was probably a memorable experience.
What was your first experience with the original RE2? What's something you remember about that time period? Did you know what you were getting into?
my first experinece with RE2 was in 2015, in which i played around with the mechanics and got shat on by the licker, i was so use to the RE4-RE7 gun then run routine that i wasn't aware of how precious ammo was, that's about it, i never finished it since i only had it as a demo or some sort playthrough thing
Probably when I was still a kid, I had a bunch of PS1 games with RE3 and RE2 being part of them, I played RE3 first so I’m a bit biased towards that but I played RE2 maybe...two three years later so I was like 9 at the time, maybe 10.
Around 2002 when I was in the 5th grade, my friend at the time played the N64 port a lot and would always talk about how many clears he had. I'd never played any of the games yet, but I was getting more excited the more I heard about it. Finally we were at his house one day and when he left the room, I turned the game on and tried it for myself. I loaded a Claire B save at the last typewriter and accidentally saved over one of his better saves. Haha, whoops.
This i do not know but i think it was one day in a shop i saw it next to re 1 on the ps1 which i bought instead of 2 but after that i could not stop thinking about it so i in fact got copy of the n64 version.
My first memory of RE2 was about the same as most of the other games - through walkthroughs in the early days of YouTube. I never grew up with the PlayStation, so to be able to see these games was like going to another world. As for actual experience, it wouldn’t be until much later, perhaps 2014-15, that I would be able to play the game via emulator. It certainly is odd to walk through streets and buildings you’ve technically never been in but know like the back of your hand.
I was very young when I first tackled the game, it was 2002 and I was 6 at the time, I remember vividly watching my older brother play it, he seemed to be having fun and as for me, I was instantly enthralled with it, something about the setting and atmosphere was unlike anything I knew back then, and it really captured my attention, I was extremely scared of it, but at the same time I couldn’t keep my eyes off of it, so I kept making back and forths in and out of the room to keep spying on my brother’s progress while taking short breaks because I was too frightened to keep going. Eventually I played it myself and stopped when I reached the Police Station because it was too much for my young self to take, but the impression it left on me is something I always remembered. It’s only after several years later that I finally got around to play it again, and ended up beating it, creating some of the best memories I have along the way.
My first experience was actually through a friend who was a huge RE fan, and so talked to me about RE2 (as well as showing a bit of the gameplay). This was essentially my first taste of the RE series as a whole as, whilst I know it existed, I’d never really played or seen any.
My first experience with the game was in 2002-2003 in a pc gaming magazine. I immediately fell in love with the character designs. The magazine had a detailed review on the game including the characters and the monsters, but my mum wasn’t really happy that I was looking at such scary stuff, so she ripped the page with the monsters on it from the magazine. Fast forward to 2006-2007, I borrowed a tons of games from a friend and among them was the Claire disc for re2. After starting it up, I immediately recognised it from the magazine and I have been in love with the series since then.
