Resident Evil 4 Remake - 24th March 2023

Recommended Posts

So… they’re basically turning it into The Last Of Us? As expected…

A shame.  Hopefully the gameplay is still fun though… and the inevitable content cuts aren’t too severe…

I'm happy that it's going to seemingly be way more horror based than the overrated, but still excellent, action heavy original. But in my opinion, Leon looks the same age as he was in RE2 from 2019. That's kind of odd.

In the original RE4, Leon was noticeably older than he was when he went to Raccoon City. But then again, the graphics on the GameCube are different from the PS1 era. Although they really should have changed that a bit, because RE4 is supposed to take place in 2004. At least, I think it is...

I'm just catching up with the news from last nights Resident Evil show.

VERY happy with the story changes. I hated how it never really connected with the other games and so retconning it to fit  with Resident Evil 5 and 7 makes me a happy chappy.

Reading through previews and comments, it appears the game has kept it's cheesy dialogue. That should keep a lot of you happy. :D 

Also...

Quote

''In an interview with Resident Evil 4 producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi we asked if the remake efforts for classic Resident Evil titles will continue after the release of Resident Evil 4 Remake and, more specifically would Hirabayahi-san like to work on a Resident Evil Code Veronica Remake.

Hirabayashi-san responded that his focus is currently on the development of Resident Evil 4 Remake and making that the best experience for fans. He continued that there are no concrete plans to develop Resident Evil Code Veronica Remake, but if the "opportunity comes, maybe."

They had better do Code Veronica after this. That game needed an upgrade more than this one did.

The tone is still too serious for my liking, despite some one-liners still being in... but I have to admit that I'm impressed with what we've seen so far.  The village shootout's level design is basically a 1-1 match for the original, and the Castle section is still in (though I suspect that it'll be heavily truncated), as is the Del Lago fight.

I'm not happy about the addition of a crafting system (because of course it has a fucking crafting system, it's a modern game, it has to have the obligitory Minecraft ripoff), but I am happy to see that they haven't messed with the Tetris Attache case too much.

The new parry system looks good though, and the idea of Leon parrying a chainsaw with a piddly little butter knife tickles me in all the right places :D

That being said though? The guns look weak as shit compared to the original.  I don't care if it's more realistic, I can tell just by the video footage that the gunplay is going to feel much worse than the original, never even mind the Wii Edition.

I like the addition of more context-sensitive actions though, like the burnable cow and the wooden overpass being chopped down.  That's the kind of stuff I want to see!

I am still not convinced that most of the original game's content is going to survive the chopping block though.  I cannot imagine a scenario where Capcom actually manage to recreate even half of the original game's content in this HD-era.  The original game's scope is just far too big.  Still.  If there was anything that they were absolutely sure to not mess with, it was going to always be the initial village shootout section.

Also.  Everyone except for Lois & Hunnigan look weird.

Edit:  

ALL CUTSCENE QTES ARE GONE! (wait... what the hell does this mean for the Krauser Knife Fight!? Surely that isn't getting cut right? RIGHT!?)

Is that the Wii one? 
The only RE game that I ever played (never finished it)

I need to play the series eventually, don't I? :(

Yes it is (AKA, the best one).  Was first released on the Gamecube back in 2005.

Looks absolutely incredible!! :o:bowdown:

Hopefully they got the balance between original and new stuff just right. Based on what was shown though I’m more confident than ever that they have. :cool:

Just wish they would pick a face for Ada and stick with it though! She looks completely different in every game. :heh:

This looked really good, still very recognisable but a huge graphical and technical upgrade. Can't wait.

Looks nice, but I don't enjoy RE4 for the horror, so I'm super out.

Why can't I just have a HD port with the Wii controls!?

Weren't you already super out due to you not owning a console that it's being released on? 

I think that makes you ultra out now.

PC is an option.

You can. Get a Steam Deck, buy RE4, download the graphics mod, and use gyro aiming settings. Voila!

i suspect unlike most of you, I haven't played this game in a long time. The Cube version is the only one I've ever played. That combined with my shit memory, and I'm all up for this remake. It looks great, and half the game will feel like new because of the tweaks of because I've forgotten stuff. Hmm. Just found out Ashley's face model is Dutch.
