So hyped. The "1-shot", 30 minutes restricted demo is out, on all platforms this Friday, 11th January and I cannot wait! I'm sure the PC version will get some kind of 'fix' so that we PCMR peeps can play the demo further.

Who's getting this puppy? If so, on which platform?

I’ll be... well I don’t know.

I’m there day one for the game, tin and all. Just try and stop me.

But everything is telling me to ignore the demo. I think, seeing as I beat the original to death hundreds of times, and at the same time have seen waaaay too much already of the remake, j may leave the demo.

It’s going to be painful... but it’s out in like two weeks!

You’re an idiot if you don’t get this btw. *cough* Nicolás *cough*

But I play Lara, she has the boobies!”

Enjoyed the demo a lot, really cool. However I wouldn’t be me without listing the issues I had with it:

- The game runs on the Pro\X with no enhancements, for the demo anyway. That means the Xbox One X is running at 900p and looks blurry as hell. I’m hoping this isn’t a RE7 situation where the TXAA totally destroyed the 4k image and made it look like 1080p.

- HDR is totally broken. As in it works, but... ugh... god damn is it bad. Probably the most pointless I’ve seen. It doesn’t change anything at all, other than make dark black areas bright grey. This is capcom, so I doubt HDR will be fixed. So... turn it off. Doesn’t make dark areas pure black but it’s better.

- As with all RE games the guns sound awful.

- The music... god damn it... there isn’t any. You hear a little every so often, very soft and very quiet, and then nothing again. It’s just not right. Walk into a save room and the music barely does anything, then stops... so strange. Compare this to the classic and... :(

- Gou can’t then off pop ups, so you have shit loads of icons all over the screen. If you want them off you I’ve to turn off everything... including the crosshairs.

- There’s no title announcer. This is punishable by death.

Aye been playing it with the trainer, unlimited ammo and time :)

Utterly fantastic port, smooth as silk, brilliant looking, some amazing gore when you shoot things. Didn’t notice just how much you can shoot the zombies? There’s one hanging on the ceiling in the old licker coridor, and you can just take chunks off it... awesome :)

Ugh... Just read the cut enemies, which makes no sense...

But they cut:

Spiders, Moths, Crows, Green Lickers, possibly plant enemies at the end.
Really bad man :(

Spoiler

Plants
are definitely in, one of the devs confirmed it on a stream last week. Seems their main focus is on zombies this time around. Either way, i'm still looking forward to the game.

Apparently, there's also

female Licker
in Claire's campaign. Interesting, they might replace the

dark lickers

Man I hope they haven’t cut too much, I wanted more added, not removed. Some of the excuses I’ve heard thrown around make no sense. I would assume it would be more to do with controls now it’s third person, and certain things being harder to hit... Yet I could hit them just fine in RE4...

The Alligator almost didn't make it in too, according to a recent interview. They were struggling to find ways to add it. But, there it is. Perhaps they're saving the cut stuff for paid DLC. This is Capcom, afterall ;) *cough SF V cough*

Ugh... Just saw the new designs of the:

Ivy/Plants

Why?! Why did they do THAT? Ugh... It seems everything is just based on a damn zombie now... So with the removal of:
Spoiler

Crows/Green Lickers/Moths/Spiders

Plus not including ANYTHING to do with:
Spoiler
Show
Extreme Battle
I'm really getting a bad taste in my mouth... After REMake added so much new stuff, they seem to be removing stuff all over the place :( At 10 hours play time for a newbie, that will equal just a couple of hours on my first run, and quick as soggy tits on a speed run. I did RE7 about a dozen times start to finish, and I got the run time down to less than two hours, easy. I'm a little concerned they are removing too much here... Its quite clear they didn't have the budget they should have done. But... Capcpom gonna Capcpom...

Guess what else is confirmed to be cut?
