I never noticed the deadzone issue in the Series X demo until I read about it online. Now unfortunately I do notice it, especially compared to the PS4 version (which I also tested). Sadly, it turns out the Xbox One version of the RE4 HD remaster released last gen also had the same deadzone problem (basically the right stick needs to be moved more to register an action compared to the playstation version).
These newer RE titles are literally some of the best games out there on any platform but there’s always some sort of tech related snafu holding them back. They never ever fixed the HDR raised black problem in RE2 Remake for example. Then there’s the deadzone issues on Xbox & also framerate problems on all platforms (notably last gen when the base consoles ran RE2, 3, 7 & Village at an uneven framerate between 30 & 60 fps when they should have just locked it at 30) .
I guess I’ll just have to adapt to the wider deadzone on Xbox because I’m not buying a PS5 (or a new pc) just to play RE4 Remake (& the PS5 version also reportedly looks worse than the Series X version, so right now it’s not a viable alternative either).
Of course. But this might be a good thing because rather they make that dlc longer and add more content. The re4 dlc was very lightweight. Id be very dissapointed if the remake dlc is the same. Go all out and make it a bigger piece of content.
I am in the middle of chapter two. It looks really really nice but playing it again now reminded me that RE4 was really the start of the action focused RE games. There is only light horror in this game. It almost feels like playing the last of us or anything comparable. I have no problems with the controls, but I am getting used to different control schemes very quickly. Its heavier than other games, no doubt about that but that adds to the tension I feel.
The game has a lot of setpiece moments. Really impressive. I usually use the Punisher, because of the laser sight, as my main pistol but I’m wondering if Red 9 would have been the better option. Used that in the original
