OK, so I’ve been playing Resident Evil 4 remake all weekend and I have to report that it exceeded my expectations! As a huge fan of the series, and number four in particular, this was everything I hoped for. I already knew what the operating system was like from the demo, so it wasn’t a problem getting used to it, and I just got into it.
I like the graphics, I like the tone – more serious but not too serious – and I love that the momentum and pacing of the original is something they’ve nailed perfectly. For some reason I didn’t remember that part with the ravine and the rope bridge at first, but it came so quickly after the village and it was just amazing, really one of the best games I’ve had in ages.
I’ll try not to spoil anything, but I haven’t been disappointed by anything yet. I really like the new merchant and his pirate themed shooting galleries are great. I love that the game is a bit more open world than before, but not enough to disconnect from the original. I agree with GC that the puzzles are a bit silly, but that’s the closest thing to criticism.
Capcom knocked it out of the park with this one, and we still have all the DLC coming up!
Played a lot of Resident Evil 4 remake last weekend and can report that it’s phenomenal! I love how it looks and controls like a modern game, but you can just tell it’s much older than the one underneath. That old school arcade feel, where it’s just you against the game and no stupid story or cutscenes constantly getting in the way (well, the story is stupid in a good way, but that’s not what I mean).
There’s no shoehorn in role-playing elements, just the tiniest amount of crafting, and no wandering for hours after a waypoint across a boring open world map. Just a fantastic game in every way and I really wish they made games like this nowadays, without having to remake something from almost 20 years ago.
People are just awful
I couldn’t help but laugh at the news that Counter Strike 2 has already been ruined by cheats, and it’s only in a closed beta! People are just awful. How can you like a game enough to want to dive into it at absolute ground level and then immediately try to screw it up?
Cheating is an issue that I just never see disappearing from games and I’m just glad it’s not as prevalent on consoles as it is on PC. However, it’s one of the main reasons why I don’t play much multiplayer. That and how angry and rude people can be just puts me off.
I wish companies put more effort into multiplayer-like experiences, but where they’re still single-player. I know the computer doesn’t cheat and I would like to test myself in a multiplayer style game. But the bots are always terrible and it’s never anywhere near the same.

I don’t remember PlayStation 4 showing playtime data and only noticed yesterday that PlayStation 5 does. A little surprised but not too surprised to see that Rayman Legends on PlayStation 4 lasted 2,077 hours. I’ve been playing the online challenges since the game was released in 2014.
I also played them on PlayStation 3 at the same time, but stopped playing them entirely on PlayStation two years ago, when I got an Xbox Series X and was able to bag the PlayStation 3 because the Xbox 360 challenges, which are identical to PlayStation 3, could be accessible on that console through its excellent backward compatibility. S, the actual playing time will still be a few hundred hours.
Shame another 2D mainline Rayman game doesn’t seem likely as Legends is a true classic to me.
GC: It’s not very likely, but the upcoming Disney Illusion Island looks like it has a similar vibe.
Honk if you want more
Here, here at Colin’s Reader’s Feature on Untitled Goose Game. My daughter, then 10 years old, and I had a great time playing this together. The music is great and heightens the experience when things would go wrong!
We really need more games like this, a sequel would be most welcome. Wholesome, funny, creative games that don’t rely on huge budgets or rely on established characters are few and far between. We’ve now left the game alone long enough to forget the details, so thanks for the reminder to dive right back in soon!
Crime of the century
I’d like to contact you about a Pokémon Scarlet and Violet story that hasn’t been covered yet. Wikipedia states that Pawmo has been negatively received, which makes it surprising that there has been no official response to the criticism from Nintendo or the Pokémon Company.
This is, in fact, the first electric rodent to evolve since Pikachu, but the impressions since launch are clearly not good. Especially considering that people on multiple social media have pointed out that there are no visual differences between each other, some have even explicitly stated that nothing would change if Pawmo is removed completely as it is considered obsolete.
That’s why Pawmi’s evolutions are often considered the laziest and uninspired. Here are their artwork from the Pokémon Center website and take a good look. While the Electric/Fighting dual type is interesting in its own right, coupled with the introduction of a unique attack (Revival Blessing, which revives fainted allies at half HP), the Pawmo and Pawmot designs should be clearly differentiated so that they stand out more. .
Hopefully the criticism will be shared, it should be acknowledged and taken seriously. Thanks and have a nice weekend!
GC: How serious exactly?
Really great selection of Reader’s Features this weekend, well done to everyone who took the trouble to contribute. I swear I will find another one soon!
I really liked it the Red Dead Redemption 3, which is such a good idea I’ll be disappointed now if Rockstar doesn’t (assuming I live that long / the world is still spinning by then). The Untitled Goose Game game was cute, the Bloodborne game is a tragedy, and I can’t argue with the Activision Blizzard game. Well done everyone!
GC: It was a good party. And yes, we also really liked the idea of Red Dead Redemption 3.
In the PlayStation 1 and 2 era, I regularly bought almost every PlayStation magazine. But as time went on and the internet took over, I gradually stopped altogether.
However, to celebrate the remake of one of the greatest video games of all time, I decided to buy the latest issues from PLAY and Retro Gamer, both of which featured Resident Evil 4 on the cover. The first magazines I’ve carried in years. I must say it was a nice piece of nostalgia and made a change from reading online.
I enjoyed both issues. PLAY with a feature in the remake. Retro Gamer covers the original release and it also came with a booklet exploring the history of all previous games, which I thought was pretty cool. PLAY also covered some new games I wasn’t aware of. Eternal Threads (which I’ve now discovered is already on PC) sounds intriguing. One that I will definitely keep an eye on!
So will I continue to get them regularly now? I’m not sure, maybe occasionally. But I did enjoy taking a trip down memory lane.

I never understood why some people loved Kyle Katarn so much. He’s starred in some good games, but does he even count as a character? What are his character traits? What’s his personality? He’s just a skin.
The Joe Biden Resident Evil 4 sketch is simply beautiful. Kudos to whoever did it. Reminds me of the work of eli_handle_b․wav. Terrible name, but its Detroit: Become Human/Naked Gun crossover is awesome.
Throw in the trash
Hot topic this week
The topic for this weekend’s Inbox was suggested by reader Tesla, who asks which video game franchise have you played the most entries in?
Many video game franchises have been around for 30 or 40 years at this point, with dozens of sequels and spin-offs, but which entry have you played the most? Is it because you’re a fan of the series and you purposefully sought them all out or was it more of an accident?
What kept you from the entries you haven’t played and how much completist are you about series you like? Do you enjoy keeping the games and do you have merchandise for them?
