Hype level at max!

How the hell am I gonna stop playing this for Kingdom Hearts III now?

Why did these two games have to release so close to each other.

Some Wal-Marts (a very scant few) broke street date over the weekend. I should visit mine tonight and check for a miracle.

I am concerned my PC won't run this
I tried the demo and it run fine mostly..but there were parts it was stuttering like hell
I don't have the best video card, it came out 6 years ago, and I also don't play much AAA titles that can stretch it, but so far I have yet to encounter a game I couldn't run fine, besides this one
Far Cry 5, Nier Automata and Rise of the Tomb Raider all worked fine....so I dunno..

I hope it's just a stupid setting I can turn off and it would solve it, but I couldn't test it because the fucking demo was 30 minutes, thanks for this idiotic shit Capcom

So, IGN's reviewer accidentally played two new games as Claire and Leon instead of playing the 'B' scenario, complained that the two campaigns were too similar, then crossed out chunks of the review when they realised their mistake.

Ha.

Closest Wal-Mart won't be breaking street date. Looks like the earliest way you can get the game (from a vendor not breaking any rules) is through GameStop - they're selling them Thursday at 9 p.m.

I'm not one to get on the ol "game critics getting called out for fucking up their reviews" train because it's usually just people being salty, but it's pretty funny when it's legit. I think it was Fire Emblem Awakening where the text of either GameSpot or IGN review revealed that the reviewer never got out of the tutorial. Of course, Nier Fishing will never be topped.

I think it's funny, but now I'm looking at the threads about this over on KiA and resetera plus some twitter posts I'm seeing, and it's like, man, how are people getting so mad about this?!

Like people are complaining that only 0.2 was added for the mistake. Now, I haven't played this game, but I have played the original RE2, and no matter how much bonus content a game gets, a 9/10 game is still a 9/10 game!

The B-side scenario, from what I can tell, is NOT a total overhaul or completely new content. So it's totally fair for the reviewer to say "Okay, I was wrong, but still it's not a huge thing"

And yet people are acting like he should be overhauling his entire review and bumping the game up to 9.5 or higher, and that he should be treating the B-side as if it's the second half of the game like you'd tell someone they've only beaten half of 999 if they only get one ending.

Come on.

They've been ruined by the open world games.

They think every game has to be a sprawling 40 hour epic now when brilliant stories can be told within a concise five hours.

I'm also concerned about this but I'm going to stick with it. Zombies feel more legitimately threatening in this game than anything in the last 10 years, I keep taking hits and resources are so scarce... which is awesome! Feels like a true survival horror unlike anything we've seen recently.

Then I gotta wonder if they will remake Resident Evil 4
I mean, the game got a lot of rereleases, different versions, HD ports etc..but I wonder if a full remake will become a thing, and even if it even needs one
Right now? probably not. But in 10 years? hmm

Oh yeah, it's definitely slow going. I probably played like four hours last night but my timer was under two; a huge chunk of my time was spent reloading a save after getting my shit pushed in. I reached the first boss and managed to beat it, but not before using practically all of my resources, so I reloaded in hope of a better fight. Some general info for anyone who may be considering Hardcore:

- Ink ribbons are pretty scarce. I currently have one in my inventory.
- Enemies are total bullet sponges. I had a zombie survive ten (TEN) headshots with the handgun.
- Almost any attack (zombie bite, licker) puts you in danger status. You get touched, you need to heal.

I'd probably have preferred Standard difficulty with finite ink ribbons, but that isn't an option so I had to settle for Hardcore. We'll see if I regret it enough to actually restart on Standard, but yes, this is SURVIVAL horror.
