Re: Resident Evil 4 (2023)

The latter, I reckon. It's been put on the big list.

Tune into the next Patreon monthly podcast for some spoken word review from me in the meantime.
Should be out around 8th or 9th April.

Re: Resident Evil 4 (2023)

RE4 until 1am again. I think it's fair to say I approve this venture.

Currently finding statue heads and just ridden the first ornate castle travel car mechanism. Big game is big!

I love Luigi's Mansion 3.

But if you didn't like it, definitely don't bother with 2.

I find RE Engine games need a lot of tweaking to get the gamma and HDR settings spot on.
