I went ahead and played it, and it's gooood. Reminds me of a Blood map in a lot of ways. I love all the new functions they've added to the weapons, and the new enemies. They can really shred you up on skill 3, so the extra firepower is very much appreciated. That minigun, oh baby.
I also finished playing the Resident Evil 2 remake, going Leon A/Claire B on hardcore mode, which puts ink ribbons back in and makes the supplies really damn scarce. I can't believe how good the game turned out. First time through I had to be super cautious with my ammo, and scour the place for anything that could help. The level design's better
than the original, connecting up in ways it didn't before, which is just super when Mr. X is chasing you around the place. They've stripped out a few enemies, and turned one or two bosses into set-piecey encounters which kind of sucks. I'm not a fan of the new character interpretations, they feel like baby-faced cosplayers
acting out some HBO drama, but the gameplay carries it the whole way. It won't replace it for me, but it does make a great companion piece to the original. Here's a big old album full of spoilers.
