Had a quick go of the original RE2 last night to refresh my memory of it and I dunno, I think I may actually like the remake more, something I never thought I'd be saying. The update to the RPD and such is just so good, it's slightly underwhelming to go back to the old design now, as nostalgic as it may be.

That's a good time. I'm going to try and get the S+ for Hardcore now. Also, they did unlock after one playthrough? I dunno why I thought they didn't. Oh and I've been buying the DLC outfits. One thing I can't resist are Resident Evil unlockable outfits, even if I have to pay for them.
I'm feeling the same about the original. I replayed it a few months ago and still adored it. My first run of Leon A left me thinking I liked the original a bit more, but my speed run of it was such a blast I think I may prefer the remake now.

Also thanks! Pretty proud of it for my first try. I saved 7 times so I didn't get S+. :( I haven't played Hardcore yet, but I think I might join you on trying to S+ rank it. Yeah, when I went to attempt my second run, it was right there in the costumes lol. Feel like a dummy haha. I also bought them, I couldn't resist that Elza Walker costume haha.

Just beat Hardcore with an S+ with Claire.

That was exhausting. I had to try the second last boss fight three times but I had used up my 3 saves by then and had to keep restarting back about 20 minutes before it. But now I have the LE 5 and Minigun so all is good.

Ok, beat Leon A! Just over 10 hours playtime. In typical RE fashion my item box was absolutely stuffed with all kinds of ammo and healing items. Yeah this game just like RE7 desperately needed a difficulty between standard and hardcore.

I really liked the game. I think there's things the original does better though, and I'd also say that RE7 had higher highs and will be the more memorable game to look back on, despite RE2 being the more consistent game with overall better level design.

Gonna try Claire B tomorrow. I'm keeping my expectations in check for it as the A scenario seemed to use up a lot of what I would have expected from the B scenario.

i just beat Claire B.

the electric gun sucks. why do i have several pistols? kinda silly.

i started Leon B was kinda disappointed and stopped. I figured Claire A would be a better fit, starting that now.

Yeah. Aside from William and Mr. X, the Spark Shot can pretty much 1 shot kill anything in the game.
Though the Ivy still have to be burned for perma-death.

The Spark Shot is fucking dope if you know how to use it

that's probably why, i saved the spark shot on the boss, it didn't do much.

and yeah, i needed additional fire for the plants, it wasn't really great. i just ended up using 1 Acid round then 1 fire for the plants and acid rounds on the boss.

Yeah 7 has great boss fights, it just needed more of them. If it had like two more boss fights on par with the 2nd Jack and Marg fights it would probably have the best bosses in the series overall.

You know I only just noticed that Jill's beret is on her desk in the original and the remake.

Anyway, enjoying just going through at a slower pace again, haven't done Leon B on Hardcore so just doing that now, also ended up buying all the DLC costumes. I hope they add more at some point and hopefully for free. I would like the original unlockable costumes for killing zombie Brad, that would be cool.

i got the deluxe and need to use the code for the costumes myself. i haven't looked on the desks in detail but that's a nice touch.
i did see the Brad poster and was waiting for some kind of appearance.

I posted in the RE2OT in the main forum; but earlier I ordered these replica R.P.D police station keys from Etsy after seeing the keys bundled with the RE2 collector's edition in EU.



Which got me thinking...I want Spencer mansion keys to go with them. So I started to do some research and there were some readily available replicas I found lacking (All the same color metal, other inaccuracies) . That's when I discovered about the rare Kuji keys in Japan that you can find listed on eBay.



I had to bite the bullet and order myself a set but to any other crazies be warned they are not cheap.

These look pretty nice. I didn't realise they were in a collector's edition.

Now you gotta build yourself a escape room and add those keys and then hire a big dude to play Mr X
