Suikoden (game revival)

Image result for suikoden logo

Hey there, Everybody. This is Chris M. I’m sure there are lots of people out there who enjoyed playing the Suikoden games when the series was in its prime. In case you didn’t know, Suikoden is like a cross between Fire Emblem and Jade Empire. But then, the series came to a halt sometime ago and since those days, there were no announcements of a new game. But there is still hope for those who want a new installment in the old series.

I’m planning to make a new fan game that would be a fresh take on Suikoden but remains true to certain parts in the games of old. Are you one of the fans who want to see Suikoden make a comeback?

Resident Evil 2 (2019) Review

Resident Evil 2 (2019) is the long-awaited remake of the beloved second installment from 1998 in the classic Survival Horror franchise, helping bring a more modern take using elements from more recent installments such as 4 and 7.

 

The game remains set in the fictional Raccoon City, where two people traveling there find themselves caught in the middle of an outbreak that has resulted in creating hordes of zombies and mutated creatures, searching for a way to escape while uncovering the truth of how it all started. While there are a few changes made, the story is largely the same as the original, with nothing really contradicting how everything already happened. This allows for a couple of mysteries and surprises for those who already played the original game.

 

The visuals are obviously improved to meet the standards of current games of this generation, using the game engine from 7 to give much more detail to the environment and enemies, showing the horrific imagery such as the grotesque monsters and/or the brutal killings in all their bloody disgusting glory. A lot of it will still look familiar to older fans, while also altering other parts to help it stay fresh. Either way, it’s quite impressive to look at, even if your heart or stomach can’t take it as well as your eyes.

 

The gameplay returns to its classic roots of giving you the option to either fight or run away from zombies, depending on the weapons or items you have and how much of them you’re allowed to carry. Healing items and ammo are in limited supplies, so you have to be careful of how you use them up, which has always been a source of tension. There’s also a few puzzles you need to solve in order to escape. It of course has all come a long way, and is improved upon for today’s audience.

 

While zombies are slow for the most part, there’s still a chance for them to grab you while you’re busy running and shooting. Aiming for the head isn’t gonna cut it this time, and they can follow you to most of the other rooms. One monster in particular is a near-indestructible brute that will keep looking for you no matter how much you run or hide. There’s a lot of suspense with having to deal with him menacingly coming your way and smashing you to the ground. There’s a lot of strategy involved with having to deal with all these creatures, as you still need to save some stuff for the bosses that you’ll definitely have to fight. So make sure you have enough firepower to take those on.

 

Overall, the game stays true to the original terrifying experience from 20 years ago, while still using the later improvements to the series to truly make it a new take on an old favorite. While some things are still removed or heavily altered, it doesn’t stray too far from what people originally got in the day. Even keeping some extra content for after already finishing the game so that you can keep playing some more afterwards. With all the expectations this remake had to live up to, it manages to do the original game justice.
