  1. Wrestling games are all the same more or less. The main difference lies in their execution and how they control. 2K lacks controls that feel rewarding or make sense (the guessing elements of the combo and reversal system are pure ass). If this game can go back to the basics of timing-based gameplay from the AKI series, Smackdown series, and Firepro then the gameplay will already by more fun and rewarding than the frustrating game-play mechanics found in 2k.

  2. While I agree that Ada's voice actress sounds uninspired and dull, I also feel like that was intentional. I say this judging by the facial expressions, or lack-thereof of the Ada character model in the cut-scenes. She looks like she is about to fall asleep as she talks. I'm not going to say what parts so as not to spoil it but the last boss fight is a good example of this. I feel like she was meant to be portrayed as monotone and not show emotion.

    It matters a little because if it looks like trash then it has to play better than older games to compensate; or else i'd rather just go back and play those old games. I probably should have included that in the first post I guess.

    How does UPW look like trash? It has a very distinct art style to it abut it doesn't look bad. It definitely does not look anything like a "realistic looking" WWE game but it looked smooth gameplay wise in the video.

  4. Passed the game yesterday on the easiest mode and tried to do another play-through on hardcore. That was too difficult lol, I had to go back to standard difficulty. The jump in difficulty is so high that it's quite frustrating to play at times, the normal enemies are so much more difficult to beat and they seem to just come out of nowhere at times,. You're pretty much gonna get hit no matter how safe you are playing.

  5. Yeah a ton more was added to the game, the map is huge. I may be in the minority as far as this series goes, but I think I prefer the brain-controlled zombies like in RE4 and 5 compared to slow zombies from the other RE games. RE4 and 5 are my favorites and it has to be because the "zombies" can grab weapons and hack you to death. That is much more frightening than walking corpses. Plus the cultist in RE4 are so much cooler than any zombie on the street.

    For those who are only watching others play, I suggest playing this game on the easiest mode, that's what I do going back to the original RE4, then I work my way up the difficulty ladder. I know how the game ends lol so I'm not spoiling much for myself by starting off easy.

  6. I'm about half way through the game and I'm already thinking about my next play through on the next difficulty level. I usually start on the easiest and make my way up the difficulty levels through every playthrough. I will agree, this is the best of the remakes.  I replayed RE2 and 3 after playing 4 and the other two just felt off, not enough action.

    The 'Separate Ways' scenario is likely being planned as DLC. 



    I hope so, the preorder DLC was ass tbh so this game needs some legit good DLC.


    On a separate note (no pun intended), I really hope the metal armor Ashley attire is in this game, I loved playing the original game with her wearing that. I don't want to search spoilers for this as I want to find out for myself.

  8. I've been playing the game nonstop and enjoying it. It is bringing back so many memories of playing the original on PS2 several times over the years. I wish more games made me feel like this. The WWE games used to make me enjoy playing them nonstop as well but the 2K games don't do it for me. Perhaps its a generational thing. If more PS2 games got a remake I'd play the hell out of those too. One thing this game has little of is long cinematic sequences. The action and storytelling all seems to happen in real time.

  9. I've been finding this game way more difficult than the original, and I'm playing on one of the easiest difficulty levels. It's a bit frustrating tbh, maybe because I'm not a regular anymore, I just play games here and there for a few minutes.

  10. I think I'm passing on it this year. If it's the same game as last year there's no point in getting this year's game. I'm more into playing with the legends and it seems like the same legends are in from last year. Has the gameplay changed at all?

    That's.. an incredibly difficult question to answer. Obviously when I get very angry with someone there's a part of me that wants to smack them, but if you're asking if I get the urge to go get a weapon and kill people, then no. At least, not anymore. I had a very troubling childhood and a younger version of me may answer differently, but I worked very hard on myself to get that under control. I cannot in good conscience speak for other people, I am myself and I only know myself and how i've felt; but lets just say there's a good reason I try to forget a lot of my younger days.

    Thank you for the honest answer. I don't particularly feel that I myself have severe mental health issues, other than anxiety. I can control my anger usually, but I've also felt like smacking someone when most angry, but I never let myself use violence.

    Without going into specifics, i've been dealing with some fairly major demons from my past and mental health issues that I hadn't realized until very recently were messing with my temperament and how i behaved. I'm sure even on here i've acted more aggressive lately than i meant or even realized. Luckily i'm on the road to fix the problem now but it's been rather rough dealing.

    Just curious, but have you ever at any point felt the urge to hurt someone else when you are going through these mental health issues? I've been wondering about that, why when there is a mass shooting some people cite mental health as the reason why they hurt other people. I think it's BS and believe that even at ones lowest point we are able to control our emotions and rationalize wrong from right and not go on a killing spree. You probably wouldn't want to answer my question lok, but as a public health grad student I may do a research paper on this someday and so I'm curious to ask people this.
