Thoughts: I never got the chance in my childhood to play any Resident Evil game, at least to completion without totally freaking out by the slow moving zombies. This is a remake of the 1998 classic but transformed and remade into something different but it still carries the same vibe of foreboding and fright. Fright that I couldn’t shake but enjoyed strangely enough though this may be a remake, I’m relishing in this new experience for myself. I haven’t finished the game as I put it down to play Kingdom Hearts III yet even then, I had to continually take breaks due to me screaming in terror and the overwhelming feelings in this game. It is purely survival horror and I love it.

Thoughts: 17 fuckings years. 17 fucking years for the ending of the particular arc of the original started. I have fond memories of the original Kingdom Hearts and beyond, I definitely know that it is convoluted yet, I understand it perfectly. I know that it has lived up to the hype that was started so long ago, 17 years ago. I’m beyond giddy that Kingdom Hearts III is what I wanted it to be and that the story gives us characters that we fucking care about. It’s cheesy writing but it’s full of heart and love that I can’t seem to stop playing it.
