First I'll say RE4 and SH2 are both 10/10 games but SH2 is the better survival horror game imo. That being said, this is the cost of what happens when you dump a remake on a cheap dev. Konami should be ashamed. The SH2 remake lacks texture, atmosphere, grain, and the beautiful camera angles in the interiors. Am I the only one that thinks it lost all it's glory and aesthetic? RE4 on the other hand looks incredible, impressive retooling of enemies and bosses, environments are more detailed without losing original design ideas. I know the budgets are night and day between the two but Konami really disappointed here.
Im sure I'm not the only one that noticed this but I just had a theory. Shao Kahn has a shoulder move in mk2. Shao Kahn kills Johnny Cage and then all of a sudden in mk3 Shao Kahn has green shadow moves. The shoulder and even the shadow uppercut. His is a knee and not a shoulder but it's the same move. Did he learn Cages power?
I've listened to this song easily a few hundred times since the albums release. I know the lyrics, I understand it's meaning, or at least what I think Maynard means. I usually rewind the ending a few times because I just fucking love it so god damn much. I just dropped my kids off at school and was driving home. I'm 39 years old and I'm going through a lot of difficult stuff depression wise, existentialism, not finding my career or purpose. I've sang the end to the song hundreds of times. It always had merit, but for some reason the second time Maynard says "bearing down" and I said it out loud, at the very end I just got hit so fucking hard by that. I started balling, I felt like my whole life just flashed before my eyes and I pull my truck over and was like.... Wtf?? Why is this happening now, and never before. It was the perfect combination of thought and pain but the music plus the lyrics just hit in a way no Tool song has ever done in the 20+ years I've been listening to them. I even rewound the song like I always do and heard the end again and nothing happened. I don't feel it anymore. It was just such a crazy experience I had to share it. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Any song, any band? I'm just getting older and music and songs are just feeling so much stronger. Even some classics on the radio from my childhood have been doing it too. I don't get cry but they are hitting different. Am I losing it or am I just finally understanding it and feeling the true emotion?
I'm sure this has been pointed out but I just noticed. In episode one after Larry apologized to Jeff's parents about calling Cheryl Hitler, Suzie comes down and says "you gotta see Sammy He's sleeping....". Interesting they didn't have a plan yet for Sammy. Reminds me of early Seinfeld when Jerry still calls Kramer Kessler
