Resident Evil 2: Original vs Remake

with one comment

Fred and Jam are reunited and ready to kick off more consistent retro content, albeit this one is only half retro.  In this spoileriffic comparison podcast, the two delve into the development and content of the scrapped version of Resident Evil 2, dubbed Resident Evil 1.5 by the Internet, as well as the original full blown release.  Then they move over to comparing the quality and content in this new remake.  It’s a long ride and it’s highly recommended that you play the games first, but sit back and enjoy a horrifying trip through the Raccoon City police department and beyond.

  1. Something tells me if I ever play a RE game outside of 4, it will be the original 2, not this remake. From what I can tell by how Fred described the story, that “heart wrenching emotional family drama” was written by someone who never ever went through that himself, and was instead inspired by Hollywood movies. I reject on principle any story that does not feel genuinely human.
