Come to think of it it was always pretty stupid that he wouldn't continue following just because you enter a doorway...but then, I never ran away, I always put him down just on principle. I remember the sub machine gun was the best weapon for it, he'd get peppered with bullets so fast that he would start to raise his fist, but then become so jerky and shaky from the barrage that he would never be able to follow through and land a blow before fainting. Of course, it would probably be too early to have found that during the first encounter with him, but thereafter, it became more laughable than scary because of how ridiculous he looked. I guess this new game fixes that and makes it more intimidating. I just can't wrap my mind around it being tedious if he can be literally around every corner.

    He can follow you into almost any room now even some of the save rooms.

    I'm currently stuck because I have to do a puzzle in the library (which has to be done in real time) which he also followed me into along with some zombies that were already in it. And now I have to somehow lead him to the other half of the police station without getting attacked by any zombies in that section I haven't already killed. Then go back pop the zombies so I can finish the puzzle.

    And yet they'll still be a few more run ins with him after that at least til the end game.

    He now wears a hat that you can and will have to shoot off to get a trophy/achievement so make of that what you will.

    Oh, that sucks! It's supposed to be considered a feat to actually make it to the next room without him pummeling you, so him being able to pursue just sounds like a pain in the neck.

    I don't know if the SMG will have the same stunning effect on him but given how aiming works in the game compared to the original, it would probably be hard to keep it trained on a specific part of him anyway. That's why I never played beyond the demo of Resident Evil Revelations, because I found it so difficult to aim steady with the right stick. I don't know whether there was a lock-on feature but if there was it didn't seem effective, at least for me.

    And you could easily use a save file to do a shoot-the-hat-off suicide attempt to get the trophy. Nobody said you have to stay alive afterward to get the achievement, LOL.

    Oh I already did it when he showed up the first time way less difficult than trying to shoot William and his big eye.

    Mr. X for me was a pain at first, but once you go through the game once you figure out how he works and he doesn't become a huge deal outside of how he makes you have to stop exploring an area to get away from him. Also, for those who haven't gotten far and just want to play both routes, I suggest doing the second character through the B route after you finish the A route. For some reason I thought the B route was going to be very different so after finishing did Claire A before doing Claire B, and the only major change is the first part of the police station. After the first boss fight everything stays mostly the same as the A route outside of how a few puzzles work.

    I really enjoy this game and 7, but lately I feel like the developers make the mistake of giving way too much ammo. I play through the game and hoard my resources and by the end have way too much ammo to use. When I watch a letsplay where the person kills every enemy and has little problems getting through it feels like it takes away from the whole survival aspect. I feel like Normal should be a little forgiving but be punishing if you are trigger happy, and Hard give you less leeway in how much ammo you use. I understand they want as many people to play the game so they make it more forgiving, but I feel like it takes away from the experience in a way.

    The game does kind sorta give you significant amounts of ammo.....for the handgun which is more or less the weakest gun in the game balanced out by the fact that enemies can shrug off headshots easily unless you get that rare shot that kills pops their melon.

    I'm coming up on the second fight with William and I only have like 9 shots for the handgun, 4 for the magnum, 3 for the shotgun, & half a tank of fuel for the flamethrower and a good amount of that (along with my grenades) were wasted on the G Viruses.

    So yeah game is pretty punishing enough on just normal.

    The original RE2 had a lot of bullets around too, but they compensated with it by adding a substantial amount of zombies on screen, thus adding options to consider when you engage with them. in Re2make you find plenty more ammo than in say "Re1make", but the zombie count doesn't match it. Add to this the third person aiming which makes it even easier and it doesnt offer that much of a challenge, plus it diminishes the effort put into the design of choosing your battles and planning traversal.

    When you put it down that way, I can see how the old camera system helped with the survival aspect. I remember playing RE remake a few years ago and even though I hoarded ammo quite a bit even by the end it didn't feel like enough, since the way everything was planned out made aiming perfectly much harder. That and there was a much more claustrophobic feeling where certain areas it felt like you had to take down certain enemies to traverse through safely. For RE2 remake, over the shoulder makes it a bit easier to maneuver around most areas. Also, I think they give too much inventory space as well, which you can by the end if you get all the spaces can hold all the guns and enough ammo and healing items to be practically invincible.

    Well after polishing off Leon's story in RE2 and going through the Alfheim quest on God Of War I'm taking it way back with Naruto Ultimate Ninja 3 and one of the many things that jump out at me (aside from the obligatory PS2 games don't look too good on HDTV's) Why is it that you can't lower the volume of the music without lowering the volume of everything else.

    Why was this a thing in 2005?

    I just got Just Shapes & Beats on Switch and it's tons of fun! It's this game where you control a little shape and move it around the screen avoiding anything that can kill you (which is everything).
    I recommend it to anyone who enjoys rhythm games and dodging bullets.

    I've refrained from commenting on RE2 so far, but after playing it quite a bit and finishing an S+ run, I can say I think it's amazing. I haven't even done the B stories yet because I was focusing on learning routes on the A campaigns for speed. Looking forward to the extra modes as well.

    They almost never get to do that with dubs, unless they re-animate it. Kind of a tall order for a huge RPG full of dialogue. That said I think a fair amount of the voice acting is fantastic. The story/plot... less so.

My only complaint is I wish they let me practice with the starter weapons first. I picked the axe (forgot which gun), but I have no way of knowing if that was the best weapon for me unless I restart and try again. Still, could be a favorite of mine once I git gud.
    Bloodborne update (~1 month later): I haven't been playing as much as I'd like, but I think I've made some good progress. I'm in the middle of Yahar'gul after beating Rom. Still love the game.

    Favorite area: Forbidden Woods (Dark and creepy. Easy to get lost in a good way)
    Least favorite area: Nightmare Frontier (After the surrealness wears off, it's too bright and plain. It was also easy to get lost in a BAD way. Fuck poison swamps. At least the boss was cool, but aside from that it was probably the one part of the game I didn't like.)
    Favorite boss: That big fire dog in the First Chalice dungeon.
    Least favorite boss: That big electric skeleton in early Yahar'gul (Camera was awful. I felt like I was swinging at air half the time. And yet, I still managed to enjoy it.) Scratch that, "The One Reborn" was much worse.

    Just "played" through 428 Shibuya Scramble with only some bad endings and extra stuff missing. Was a very fun experience with some great characters, kinda reminded me of Durarara with so many people roaming about a single district of Tokyo.

    My only critique would be
    Spoiler:
    the lack of a proper epilogue. It really bugs me that the story just ends after the events are resolved and for example we never see Kano & Stanley sharing that promised beer, what becomes of the Osawa family or what punishment awaits Tateno & Daisuki. Heck, best fucking character Yanagishita randomly stumbles into a toilet about two thirds into the story (after being a fun unpredictable element throughout the story until this point) and is never to be seen again.

    As I said, it was really good, but such endings always make me yearn for more closure.

    Brief thoughts about DMC5 and other action games played around its release:

    DMC5:

    Hidden:
    Nero and Dante are very well designed, especially Nero where everything flows together beautifully and every move has its purpose and usage that you have to be aware of at any given moment, whereas Dante despite having more options has some of them vastly superior to others. While they have some minor issues, V is by far the worst of them by being incredibly passive/spammy/defensive and the way he deals damage is awkward by not controlling positioning and the angle in which you deal it. Bosses are mostly great with few exceptions, and levels in the first half are better than the latter. Game is very fun overall but the scoring system is what undermines it in places: extremely forgiving and generous (the style meter racks up points too fast and takes a while for letters to drop to the one below), getting S's is extremely easy with a basic grasp of the mechanics, when prior entries were far more harsh and gratifying.

    The way it scores is also dubious, instead of grading you on your actual skill in each enemy encounter with like damage taken/dealt + time rounded up with the score multiplier of the style rank, instead it will calculate the average you scored in each of the main sections of each level. Its often ideal to skip fights with fewer enemies if they wont allow you to get a high score on them since it would lower the overall average you got.


    Asura's Wrath:

    Hidden:
    Undoubtedly weak gameplay makes up and is arguably better experienced by watching it instead. QTEs go above the point of being needlessly included by being creative visually in their usage. The story by itself is a simple revenge plot but it's executed masterfully by the direction and pacing, alongside a unique art direction with hinduism merged with sci fi and some great character designs. Cutscenes are several cuts above most other games by how each one is framed and directed, elevating what would be otherwise a simple shonen story into a huge scale conflict adamant in its execution which always delivers.


    Bayonetta:

    Hidden:
    The bike and rocket levels suck ass, as well as some other minor sections to sprinkle the game with some variety. Everything else is incredibly well crafted and balanced, from the attacks you can perform to the angels on which you deliver them. Compared to DMC's more freeform style of combat where you can chain together basic moves, Bayo instead relies more on combo strings which you may link together by executing each one as it demands. Harder on the surface but with the inclusion of Wicked Weaves and Dodge Offset it becomes just as freeform and widens your options instead of abiding by DMC checklist of moves you are required to perform in order to prevent the style meter from dropping.

    Bosses are for the most part reliant on being interactive set pieces (the Cardinal Virtues and Jubileus) with Jeanne and Balder as more arena based ones, but they are all great with the exception of Jubileus herself which i find the least enjoyable after multiple fights. Angels themselves are also mostly great except for Inspired which seems kinda uninspired in its design by flying around and preventing from being combo'd, and Fairness which has an incredibly unfair attack (the irony) which stunlocks you with a non damaging AoE, which its not bad because you may get hit by other attacks but because to keep the combo going you have to keep attacking. Overall though after hundreds of hours it never gets boring and its incredibly harsh and unforgiving scoring system, while it may be disheartening for some, it keeps you motivated to achieve Pure Platinum even on the hardest difficulty.


    God of War (2018):

    Hidden:
    It doesn't have the depth or skill ceiling, nor the spectacle or direction. Overall its a pleasant experience which balances itself out of everything without excelling at anything. What it does truly lack is the replayability action games of its kind (and previous entries too) should strive for, by getting better at them and discovering how much you can work around with what you're given. Instead it forces on a long trip better experienced only once with some merits (rage mode is well implemented, as well as incredible animations and a number of ways you can toy around with some enemies), and a lot of incospicuous problems (mainly rpg elements with numbers dictating skill over your inputs and cooldown abilities as the worst offenders).

    Storywise is serviceable with the first half doing a good job with its pacing, while the latter falls apart in a number of ways mainly from the lack of a convincing villain and plot threads poorly thought out (mainly Atreus's godhood and Kratos hypocrisy). Wish exploration was incentivized more since they spent so much on its assets, but traversing it back and forth gets incredibly grating after a while, with the climbing sections being the absolute worst non gameplay sections.


    The Wonderful 101:

    Hidden:
    Chock full of discoveries on its combat and extrinsic rewards, with the hardest and most rewarding air juggle of the genre coupled with overall great enemy designs with few minor problems with color coded attacks required on occasion. 2 out of 3 shmup sections are surprisingly bad and drawn out, with the third one so much better i question if they were aware of it. I also think it has a huge barrier to overcome in order to appreciate it, which not only extends itself to the controls and presentation, perhaps unusual and hard to read for some, but also in the way the game really opens up after you finish it once, something a lot of people dont stick around for. Despite this it immensely rewards those who do, by providing even more depth with the huge variety of weapons it provides and how uniquely each can affect each enemy differently, instead of boiling down to just dealing damage. I also appreciate it storywise, something which starts very humble and even unremarkable at first glance (alien invasion? Seen it already) escalates in a convincing manner to an incredible finale few games could rival.

    Finished Halo 5: Guardians. Since I'm a huge Halo fan i was looking forward to seeing what 343 would do with the story, even though I had heard so much bad things about it. Turned out the story is all right, if you just drop your expectations of getting another Halo 2. Unfortunately, Bungie's time is over. Multiplayer seems dead, though, so no comment on that.

    Also finished Halo Wars 2, which was pretty forgettable overall. Liked the first one much more. Can't even say what I don't like about it, but the game just seems to lack soul. I was already annoyed with the microtransactions & skin craze in H5, but in Wars it seems even worse with how everything seems tailored to this Blitz mode.

    Playing Wolfenstein: The New Order at the moment and am thoroughly enjoying it. It's pretty nice to choose between a stealth and a guns blazing approach, the story is as over the top as it gets and the completionist within me even gets to search for a ton of collectibles. Nice.

    Upcoming games are the DMC reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider. Unless I change my mind and finally play Dead Space 2 first.
    We all float down here!

    Just got The Count Lucanor. I'm not too wild a fan of horror games but the aesthetic and intriguing sounding story (and the fact that it was on sale for really cheap) led me to download it. It's pretty good, very atmospheric and cleverly designed, and not so long of a duration that you can't easily experiment with what differences you can do each play to try and find all the different endings. I'm a little annoyed that the character's movement speed is fixed and there's no map to view so you have to just remember what's behind each door.
