      From time to time it gets some discussion but is hard to keep on going, sometimes dead is better when it comes to these old IPs, the last game in the series had a terrible story thanks to the usual licensing hell.

      Dogshit gameplay for all the wrong reasons. Scrolling down to "Play Furry Cutscene," or "Unload Uzi," and vaporizing mooks isn’t exactly fear-inducing gameplay. Even basic bitch shit like RE/SH at least attempts to create tense gameplay. PE doesn’t.

        Those movements were 100% needed in the old RE games though… 4 marked the start of the worst era of RE exactly because they did away with them.

          Yeah I figured it was to make it harder and sort of make it scary I guess, but I wish they just found a different way to make it that way. Add more environmental traps, add fatigue, add an injury mechanic that can limp you. Make enemies a little faster to compensate. Anything, really.

        I wish I had saved the excerpt that gets posted in PE threads sometimes. It’s the scene where Eve shapeshifts into the Doctor’s wife and rapes him. She’s more like an amorphous blob of liquid flesh than the mutated human form she has in the game. I think the sentient goop she turns the Central Park audience into is closer to her book form.

        It has a lot of higher-end equipment and mods, from what I remember. Eventually, you’re going to just want to pick one weapon and armor to dump stats onto and perfect with your tools.

        it’s worth beating once if you really liked PE1’s combat
        not sure if beating the game once, then running chrysler at the end of your 2nd run is enough to have a decent time
        but i did my run after beating the main story 2 times and combining everything with at least 3 points on the way into my main junk weapon, that did pretty good and the final boss was still challenging

        The cockroach boss is fucking bullshit, it’s 99 randomized floors and the ending is not canon. Gives you top tier equipment though, if you plan on replaying the game on NG+ might as well give it a go.

        Granted I haven’t played any TPS games but I played a bit and it wasn’t that bad outside of the level being way too long (Boss right off the bat, like 10 firefights, a section where you cant even heal and two reaper sections and it still wouldn’t end even with infinite retries). But the story lost me when a scientist said "Yeah ghosts are real lol". I’m not even an athiest but Born-again Christian writers should not be allowed anywhere near my pseudoscience mumbo jumbo.

      Ultimate Being’s theme getting remixed into a boss theme is cool though.
      And https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxxNOUAooxc

      Parasite Eve is an action game first and foremost. Body horror in cutscenes means jack shit when PE1 gives you wide shots to move Aya around, the RPG menus kill any tension and being honest the "body horror" doesn’t translate well into low poly PS1 shit. PE2 is more tense with the real time encounters and the enemies are way more aggresive, camera is closer too. The style of each game works well, I don’t get what you whine about.

          You’re not pooping your pants, I get it, you’re a big boy.
          PE1 works fine as an ARPG with body horror enemies.
          PE2 works fine as a survival horror with RPG special attacks.
          But neither of them are scary.

            I’m not sure I agree with this, since one of the ways through which survival horror creates tension is through resource scarcity, which isn’t really a concern here unless you’re doing runs on Scavenger mode. Ammo is just really plentiful in general, not only are infinite crates for the handgun a common enough sight, but paid for ammunition isn’t that expensive either, specially so since the M4 is rather affordable and yet really strong, so you just feel on top of your game, and that feeling increases as you unlock more of Aya’s powers. Add to that the armor ability to recover HP after fights on top of your MP and you’re almost self sufficient
            Don’t get me wrong, I think the combat can be really fun and is well put together, but a stricter adherence to that survival horror element could have helped things, since for someone’s first experience with PE2, with its fixed difficulty, you feel more like an exterminator taking on one more job

                Right, and Aya is really strong in canon even despite losing her powers in between games. It’s just personal taste at this point but Idk, I guess I expected more of a survival aspect to be in it when I was coming to it blind. It still has some good creepy moments, though, I really liked how the trash compactor boss spits the severed heads of the horse-like enemies at you and they laugh manically at you before blowing up, that was neat.
                Something I found strange though was how casually the one guy still living in Dryfield moves around wherever he needs. It’s as if there’s no real hardship to it.

      It’s one thing that it’s a survival horror/JRPG hybrid which is a weird enough sell, it’s another that the true final boss is behind the stupid Chrysler Building thing. I can see it having its fans but I wasn’t super crazy into it and I never finished the sequel.

      I started playing it recently and I love everything about it except just how bad the controls feel. Even for a JRPG, they feel absolutely awful and I hate how you have to be perfectly aligned with an interactable object to press X on it.

      Also I cannot stand just how slow Eve is. It makes the game so much slower than it needs to be.

        >that wrist position
        Does she want to break her wrist or something? Or maybe it’s some 200 IQ special move they teach at police academies.

      Love 1 and 2 and 3rd Birthday very much. Aya is very beautiful and strong. Her accuracy with small arms weapons makes me wish she was my wife. I am dreaming for a next game with the original style. Hello from Japan.

      this game gave me nightmares for a long time as a kid. There is just something deeply unsettling about eve’s design to me.

        isn’t that TV show airing right now supposed to be heavy inspired by P.E to the point where the MC looks like an older Aya evening wearing her coat?

        I think it was called La Brea or something

          Doesn’t look like it, unless there’s some deep lore I’m not finding from a quick google search on it.
