Happy you were able to finish it! I was a bit busy to contribute the last few days, but it looks great.

Excited for this, and a bunch of new info rolled in today which is also exciting.

I'll mention this here early in the OT, but there's two confirmed post-launch free content updates coming to REmake 2.

PS1 Models on March 22nd (free again):


And Ghost Survivor (has no date but confirmed to be a free post-launch game mode):


Ghost Survivor is right now kinda' enigmatic, but the 100% confirmed things we know about it:
-It's a post-launch free content update.
-It'll release in volumes.
-Volume 1 Robert Kendo, a USS Soldier & Katherine will be playable.
-There is a new monster not in the main game in Volume 1 of this mode.
-There is no date yet, but a date for Volume 1 and more info will come soon.

Good OT!

This brings back some really fond memories from childhood. Here's hoping the remake is excellent.

I never did fully beat the game as a kid, but did start it over multiple times (because of rentals and versions).

I still remember the day I got it, played it, and finished it the same day. One of the first times I enjoyed doing reruns as they were pretty unique scenarios.

I think it was a total of 6 scenarios?

First time hearing of the higher difficulty mode, but I suppose I should be surprised to hear there is one.

In recent years, my excitement over recent titles has waned as games approached release, but not this time. I'm more excited than ever. The fact that we're getting a survival horror RE2 remake feels so good to be true, I half expect my PS4 to burst into flames before the game arrives. It's too bad the Deluxe version wasn't released in Japan (because it would create 4 SKUs), so I'll end up having to buy the DLC. I can see myself playing this 4 times upon release ...

Edit: Beautiful OT btw.

Awesome thread for an amazing looking game.

I just wish I wasn't so deep in Red Dead and have Ace Combat looming over me. I imagine RE2 will be sitting on my shelf for a bit before I get to it.

Glorious OT for a glorious remake. Thanks Kindekuma et al. Likely to be my personal most active OT this year -- Resident Evil and Legend of Zelda typically get me obsessed for weeks, and I can't overstate how excited I am for this remake!

Nice work.

I’m embarrassed to say I have 3 editions of the game preordered.

GameStop Collectors Edition
Play-Asia Japanese Z Collectors Edition
Pix’n Love PC Collectors Edition

Don’t ask me why. I’m excited for the game.

By the time I realised the OT was up, the entire topic was infested with posts!

Easily the most hyped I've been for a long time.

Are the Claire and Leon scenareos like the original game- in which the order you play them is meaningful (IE, 4 playthrus needed), or are they stand-alone (ie, 2 playthrus needed)?

The moment that the GameStop Collectors Edition sold out, I immediately regretted not placing an order. Jealous. Drop by MarkMan 's pickups threads next month with lots of pics!! ... or post 'em to the live January thread ;)
