So, can Claire make fire grenades, enhanced bullets and shock ammo?

Both Frugal and Minimalist checked off in one run. Pretty comfortable in the end. None of the G stages gave me much of a problem, ammo is plentiful and saving plenty makes it a nice not too taxing challenge. Mr X is a pain but I learned to kill off the lickers first so with them out the way you can manage him pretty easy. Not being able to open the chest wasn’t as much of an obstacle as I thought and that was while burdened with an extra handgun. I love this game.

Are we getting proper DLC?


The Ghost stories launches on friday?


Any hint on whether there’s new stuff or will it be just going through the same stuff with different characters.

Fabian Delph is a banana split.

Nope, just 9mm ammo and Aciiiiiiiid rounds if I'm remembering correctly.

Just finished Ada's section in the sewers at around 1:50 so hoping I can still whizz through that section as Leon and finish in under 3:30. I was 10 minutes out when i last played as Claire which was a kick in the teeth :dread:

I was watching a live speedrun on youTube earlier and the guy got to the sewers in about 20 minutes :dread:

I can only guess he used that airwalking glitch to get there so quick. Tried it myself, positioning Leon in the exact same spot at the top of the stairs in the library and same camera position and couldn't get it to work. Quit and reloaded about 10 times trying it.

I don't think he used any glitches. The total completion time was 54m49s. Weird how small it makes the game look.

Claire can make machine gun ammo as well (white+white.)

Advantage of using a PC. You can up the frame rate to 120fps thus you can stun zombies with just one bullet and the knife does more damage.

:lol:

Don't get me wrong, I am loving this (Mr X aside), but strawberry floatin hell they could have asked someone other than the work experience kid to write the dialogue. I know shitty writing is part and parcel of the Resi experience but;

'The Umbrella Corporation developed a virus that turns people into unstoppable machines'

'That explains all the horrible things I've seen!'

:lol: :fp: :lol:

It's aaaaaaawful isn't it? Some of the worst writing I've ever seen in a AAA game. Also worth noting, they specifically used non-union, scab basically, voice actors as they didn't want to pay union rates.

It strawberry floating shows.

It's really not. I agree there's a charm to B movie narm, and the cheesiness that it comes with but here it's just embarrassing. Skarjo's quote above isn't even the worst.

As someone who's been working on game localisation recently the whole thing sounds like a badly translated mess.

Seems fine to me.

The fact that people can fly through it in an hour (3 hours is pretty casual if I can do it) seems to demonstrate the game is pretty light on content. I wonder why it’s not got much criticism for that when previous sub 10 hour single player only games get pasted. Obviously quality helps but it could certainly do with a bit more meat to it. Not much, but a little would have been nice. I’d have liked an hour or so more in the streets.

Can we have a change to the thread title please? This game celebrates the return of true Resident Evil , something that Resi 4 tried to destroy.

Just finished Leon's campaign for the first time. And yeah, it's great. The zombies are undoubtedly the best ever put in a game, they're scary, unpredictable and tough, and there were enough times when they popped out of nowhere to scare the gooseberry fool out of me. It looks amazing, has some interesting puzzles and was a great experience.

I never had a relationship with the original, which might be why I rate this lower than Resi 7. That game was something completely new and something genuinely, genuinely terrifying. Resi 2 remake was scary, and a bit tense every now and again, but never as blood-curdlingly unsettling as 7. The terrible narrative, script and voice acting also meant that the whole thing felt oddly...cheap, despite it's AAA graphics.

So yeah, a solid 8/10.

EDIT: Also, strawberry floating lol
