House of Horrors - Euphemisms And Gruesome Deaths In Resident Evil 2!
Zorine and Jess take on a true classic and remember what it's like to scour for green herbs and get caught off guard by a jump scare or twelve.
A real treat, that one. RE2 was something that I never got to complete until my days in high-school, once I'd finally gotten around to creating a PSN account and made it one of my initial purchases. Good memories of me and my sister glued to my PSP (yes, PSP) as I played away into the night with something that I never quite truly appreciated until I'd nabbed it at an older age.
I don't remember dying so much though, Zorine. Yeeaaaah...lol.
you know old games like this one are cool for like an hour or so, then you remember you have something to do or you wanna play something else, but then you think: when was the last time your game was saved? lol
Hi girls, my suggestions for retro HOH would be:
Nightbreed or Hired guns on the Amiga, or the the superb Space Hulk on 3DO
Oh man I loved this as a kid on the n64 and canonically or not I always played as Leon, because as a nine year old boy girls were lame XD.
Anyway I'm pretty sure I kited those zombies in the alley with the dumpster and knifed them from above to conserve ammo. Some things you never forget.
Also I recently came across a game called "Clive Barker's Undying" that might be a good fit for this show. Clive Barker being the dude who created the infamous Hellraiser series.
As a Canadian I need to say, we don't sound like that. I think that's just bad acting, not strange accent. That was a funny episode. I have no idea how we played 3D games in the early days, the controls and camera angles were just terrible.
Tank controls are the only one viable for fixed camera angles(normal controls didnt work at all in re6 for chris boss fight,when the camera was not over the shoulder,but kind fixed),furthermore there is nothing wrong with them,and they are not hard to learn.Todays gamers are lazy for being spoonfilled too much.
horror games from a bygone era:
alone in the dark the new nightmare
evil dead hail to the king
And please make one session of daylight. I know the game sucks but Kevin said it has twitch integration. Would be fun to see jess freak out when some one types scream :P
Hey Zorine and Jess-- do you think you could post whole episodes/streams to Gamespot instead of just the highlights reel? I know the full streams are available on Twitch, but Twitch loads really poorly for me, I find. It's the only website I go to where I pause to let it load, wait five minutes, and then maybe ten seconds of video will play. C'mon, girls! There's a full episode of 'Lucius' on here that's fun to watch, I'd love to laugh along with other full streams!
I didn't think it was possible to get killed by regular zombies that many times before even seeing the police station. That was like watching Conan O'Brien play.
Tank controls... The only problem why I don't play the old, pre-RE4 Resident Evil games... If only they remade them all with proper controls... But no, Capcom has to keep pumping out this Co-Op Space Marines BS...
I wanted to see the reaction when one of the lickers flies through the two way mirror in the interrogation room. That scares the crap outta me every time, even though i know it's coming. Oh, and play one of the Fear Effect games.
I wonder how many people are going to take the opportunity to complain about Resident Evil 6 here - or its critic reviews. :P
I hang my head in shame.
@brxricano Parasite Eve is a good suggestion.
@ajmhouser i believe they did play that one and it was more hilarious then scary... funny awkward dying noises and all.
Great suggestion. Given the popularity of that request, I think it'll be either that or Parasite Eve for my next pick.
@salezy That's why the actual name they have is 3D controls. The tank controls thing is more associated with slow things or unresponsive and etc, not exactly the dimensions of the control scheme.
That's why I always say RE4 and 5 had much more tank controls than RE2 or 3 for example, if you know how to play the game, the chars in old REs are very agile and capable, and like you said so well, 3D controls are better at precision and consistency.
@peacewalker001 +1 Please Zorine, Jess and Ed. Please. I hope you can at least do this?
@daviz88 yup, Zorine looks better with darker colour hair. :)
@daviz88 LOL I was thinking she needs to update her avatar about every two weeks now to keep up.
Out in 1998, and still my favourite survival horror game to date!
@DiamondDM13 3D controls are proper controls, they work perfectly, and much better than 2D ones. 2D controls in a game where you cant move the camera are much worse, and less precise.
@scatterbrain007 Absolutely, I want to see Fear Effect too!
@Gelugon_baat It's Resident Evil 2, no one complains about RE2!
@yeah_28 @salezy Ok,3D controls,didnt have a clue thats how they are called :D
But yea RE4 and 5 are weird because you cant move and shoot,so its kinda slowish,stop shoot move away stop shoot etc.I didnt mind them going 3rd person,and i do believe a great 3rd person horror game can be made(first dead space),Capcom shied away from setting up the atmosphere in the later games except for parts in 4 and Revelations,so if i'm going to choose,i'm choosing every game up to code veronica(very underrated) or Remake not sure which one came later.
I doubt that. I find it unlikely that back when it debuted, there was not anyone who complained that it should have been more like Resident Evil 1.
@Gelugon_baat @ahpuck This is just my opinion, but RE2 is exactly like RE1. Even a lot of the puzzles were rehashed. Using jewels to open a way or give you a key and such. The hand cranks. RE2 was just longer, and had a couple of new enemies. I hated those damned things that walked on the ceilings, not the lickers those insect looking things that would jump on your head.
Yet the satisfaction of blowing up zombies was where the series starts to slide away from survival horror. :/
@Gelugon_baat @ahpuck I hated the part early where they had a straight ripoff of the chest burster in Alien, and thought it was goofy that a police station would have puzzles built into it. I also hated the lickers as poor substitutes for hunters, which scared the hell out of me in RE1. On the other hand, two discs with playthroughs that affect each other was genius. It was really satisfying toward the end to have weapons that blew zombies clean in half.
