Ahhh, Auto-racism makes things so much easier now. No need to follow anything up with hateful words, just reference a culture, and the hate and inferiority is filled in for you! #removeallreferences #toreferenceistohate

The RE, RE2, RE3, RECV Tank Controls:

LEFT turns character LEFT.
RIGHT turns character RIGHT.
UP moves character FORWARD.
Down moves character BACK.

RE4, RE5, RERev Controls:

LEFT turns character LEFT.
RIGHT turns character RIGHT.
UP moves character FORWARD.
Down moves character BACK.

The only difference was that the camera was fixed to the character, not the environment. But people acted like the controls themselves were different. Obviously AIMING was different but the movement was still the same. Even down to holding a button to RUN. But it got a lot of praise for ditching the Tank Controls. All it really did was take the camera off the wall and hang it on your back. Easier to play for most people, sure, but it was still the same movement logic.

RE6 changed this by moving the character in whatever direction you pressed. The camera was no longer stuck on their back. You could rotate the camera around the character, run towards the camera etc. This is really the first time RE changed how movement worked, within the main series.

When they made an HD Remaster of RE Remake, they added an optional alternative control scheme that obviously kept the fixed cameras but moved the character in the direction you pressed. Pressing DOWN for example moved the character toward the camera regardless of what way they were currently facing. Every movement was based on you, the player, not the character.

While I've purposely been avoiding any footage of RE2 Remake beyond a little snippet to see that it indeed looks good and I'm buying it, RE2 Remake appeared to be closer to RE6 in these terms. Which I say, if the goal is to ditch Tank Controls and Static Camera, that's how it has to be.

I'd still prefer to have both as different modes. Even as future DLC, where enemy placement, numbers and overall balance is adjusted to fit into the classic formula. But if there's only one, even as a fan of the old style, I think it'll be fun to have a fresh run through a classic from literally a new point of view.

@gessekai: This is like one of those comments where someone is blowing up over someone spelling something wrong, and then makes an even bigger mistake. (SPOILERS: He laid out this condescending post about reading comprehension and "what you learned in school" but then tells people to read all four lines of his comment. There were three lol. All good. I just had a laugh at that.

Do you remember the episode where Marge had a problem with the violence in Itchy and Scratchy, and after a big uproar they made an episode where they're just sitting in rocking chairs sharing lemonade? That's where we're trying to get to Mr. Groening. I want to see more of that. No stereotypes, no foul language, no religious jokes, no violence, no nothing. Just happy little things sitting, happily and un-offensively. Love Love Love, Share Share Share! But then again... we have to consider that not all people prefer sitting. Some stand, walk, lay down. Sitting might imply laziness or promote poor posture. And there's also the consideration that some people can't drink lemonade. Or have trouble drinking. Also those without use of their legs may feel that you're mocking them by trying to show how boring and unfulfilling life is if all you do is sit. Offense is taken not given. Absolutely anything can be offensive if you make it. One man's Apu is anothers Groundskeeper Willie. Woah, not that it's just about MEN... eaaassy there. I just figured anyone who's on a GAMING SITE has to be a Comicbook Guy or those male virgin computer nerds that appear in various episodes. It's a stereotype that has molded my perception of gamers. Blame Groening for this worst comment EVER!

(In all seriousness, try to enjoy life a bit. This is a GAMING site and all of these topics are about ENTERTAINMENT and FUN. Let's not TRY so hard to fight that. Relax a little. Build that sense of humor. Toughen the skin a bit. It'll be fine. Maybe even create your own things. Even if you still have things that make you mad, creation will drain all of your time, leaving so very little time to complain. Hope everyone has a good day.) "Zepplin Ruuuulllles!!!"

I thought these stories were about a parent caring for their child. But now I see that the relationship wasn't the point, it was the gender. We should also be concerned about whether it's a son or a daughter in the mom-ified storyline otherwise moms with a son may say "I don't' have daughter, what about strong moms raising sons!?" or vice versa. And daughters well say, "But I had a mother too!" Then once we've covered those, then twins, one son one daughter. Then the struggles of an interracial upbringing. A game about all possible variations in the millions of possible forms of motherhood. "It was a good story but as a mom who had to have a c section, I just couldn't relate to the natural birth story."

Thinking back, I don't know how I made it through some of my favorite games. Playing them now I think "But it's a girl, how can I relate to any human emotion, character arc or connect with this personality when it's NOT ME :'( " For every "Other M" has to be a "Ather F" or we just can't connect. It's the only way.

And I'm glad to see age brought up. Because the current elderly aren't speaking out about the outrageous injustice and lack of representation. It's going to take some some time for this generation to become older and carry the "but what about me" torch all the way baby! Because I've been thinking, you know, in the gaming industry and in action movies, there are too many people 20-40 year old, we need some 70-80 to make it equal. Because Youngsters are dominating the industry. There's an Age Inequality there. Too many Brunettes. Fat vs Skinny. Left Handed and Right. Not enough paraplegics, 50/50 down the middle in all aspects of life. It's the only way to truly connect with anything, the only way to reach equality and the only way to finally find happiness within ourselves through external representation.

Seriously though, make whatever stories you want. When Claire in RE2 cared about Sherry's safety... a child who wasn't even hers but she expressed that level of care, I got it. When Jade in Beyond Good in Evil was there to protect the children, I got it. At no point did I think "What are they trying to say, that a MAN wouldn't care?!!" But it's really pathetic to suggest that "Because it's not my gender, I can't relate." You're trying so hard to say GIRLS TOO and I'm over here seeing people as PEOPLE in games. Enjoying games REGARDLESS of that aspect, but that's all you can ever focus on. I play male or female characters. YOU pick up Street Fighter II and pick Chun Li... BECAUSE she's a girl. Guys are supposed to accept everyone, girls only play the girls... and want more girls. I don't know, I see a different problem there.

We say gender, race and all that DOESN'T define us. That we're all equal and color blind. That it's what's on the inside that counts.......... BUT then we exclusively attach ourselves to characters based solely on those very things and say "I'M not like that!"

A guy plays a $60 game for 100 hours. A girl buys the same game and plays for 50 hours. According to STATS, she paid twice as much per hour-of-gameplay as he did to play the same game. :(

A company hires 1 male lead artist/art director. They also hire 3 artists who all make the same pay, 1 male, 2 female. Stats say that you combine the 2 male incomes and divide by 2. Then compare to the women. You will see that the MEN make more on average than the women even though they are all in the same position "ARTIST". That's all these stats are. Just there to run numbers in an misleading way to try to act like employers discriminate. "Hello world" and AAA games are both programmed, doesn't make them the same job.

The most offensive thing about it is that they apologized for it.

Battlefront 2 is a potentially great pizza! But it costs full price for 4 slices, $2 per random topping... and the owners are kinda dix.
