Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals HUNK & Tofu Bonus Modes

Fan-favorite 4th Survivor HUNK and The Tofu Survivor returns in bonus modes for upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Only two weeks ahead of the anticipated release of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake, developer/publisher Capcom released a thirty minutes long "1-Shot" Demo to give a peak to eager fans of what is coming to them.

Of course, they received a huge number of great responses and it led to the developers showing off two additional playable characters HUNK and Tofu from the original survivor horror classic, something that was confirmed following the E3 2018 Reveal.

Official Twitter account for the game recently offered the fans their first peek at the revamped version of these two beloved characters from the RE2Make.

After rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield made it out of a zombie-infested Raccoon City with Sherry Birkin, there was an Umbrella secret operative named HUNK and his story was explored in the unlockable scenario "The Fourth Survivor".

Nicknamed "Grim Reaper", this special agent of Umbrella Security Service was the fourth person to survive the events of Raccoon City incident upon completing his mission to collect G-Virus sample from researcher William Birkin before escaping through a chopper.

Intended to test collision detection for RE2, secret character Tofu appeared in his own bonus minigame "The Tofu Survivor", a more challenging and parodied version of The Fourth Survivor but follows an exact same playthrough.

As a life-sized equivalent of a Tofu, the character wielded a combat knife and a few herbs in a non-canon story of it attempting to go through the same path HUNK followed. Unlike "The 4th Survivor", this one is the hardest mission within the title that was meant for experts.

In the previous incarnation, Tofu used to wear S.T.A.R.S. hat and had a pair of floating gloves holding the knife instead of hands but the remake version will either have the weapon float around or could also be physically attached to it.

The character also had a color change from off-white to a bloody red as a health level indicator for taking damage. Apparently, everyone's beloved bean curd will be taking visible physical damage where chunks of it would seem to have been bitten off.

For the RE2 Remake however, Capcom has yet to reveal whether or not these two bonus mode will be unlocked via the same method they used to in the 1998 original. Both minigames would have been unlocked after completing both Leon and Claire scenarios with an A ranking.

You can still place your pre-order for Resident Evil 2 Remake, which will be arriving for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019. Also, players are welcome to take a test drive with the "1-Shot" Demo" up until January 31.

Resident Evil 2 "1-Shot" Demo Out Now

The "1-Shot" Demo for Resident Evil 2 is here and you have to survive the Raccoon City experience in a short time.

Over the years, developer/publisher Capcom has remade and re-released many of their survival horror titles from Resident Evil series over to various video game platforms and the latest in the line is the upcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Even though RE2Make is only weeks from release on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, fans can hardly wait for it. So, a "1-Shot" Demo is offered to players considering that to keep them from falling from the edge of their seats and currently available for everyone.

Have look at how things are going to go once the clock starts ticking after you enter the zombie infested residence of horror.

All you have is just thirty minutes to do whatever you want to or can do with the demo and within that in-game time, you can play as many times as you can. As soon as the clock runs out, the demo is over and that's it.

So, you have to pay attention to your actions and keep a watch on your time to maximize your overall experience as a survivor of zombie-apocalypse. Probably, if we offer you a couple of tips that might come in handy to even the odds you face out there.

Scavenge Supplies
It would be wise of you to look around in each room of Raccoon City Police Department to seek out useful items for survival like First Aid Sprays, Green Herbs, and ammunition. Yes, your time is limited but some useful or important stuff can go unnoticed if you just quickly rush through.

The in-game map can be very useful to tell if there is still something within a room that you haven't found out yet. Red rooms are the one that has some object you haven't come across and other discovered items that players didn't pick up will also be highlighted there.

Stay Alive
Though dying will not end the demo and you can continue as much as you like within the set timeframe of half an hour, the clock is not going back anyhow and that is why, you should try to keep your hero character alive and in kicking form.

If you happen to get bit by a zombie and loose health, the amazing Green Herb of Arklay Mountains can restore some of your health and mixing it with Red Herb will do better. However, a First Aid Spray alone can restore your full life even if it is hanging by a thread.

Fight or Evade
Contrary to what you have gone through in the original RE2, zombies are tougher than ever and will not go down easily. They most probably won't stay down even after you shoot them down multiple times. So, try to put a bullet on their head to keep them from coming back.

Since you want your head attached to shoulder and there is a clock ticking already, the wise thing to do is run away from the undeads lurking around to save time and not let them all jump on you at once. Also, look for wooden boards to block windows before they get the drop on you.

Explore the Map
Established after renovating the former art museum, the newly-formed R.P.D. is a mighty big place and it is easy to get confused about where to go when. The best way to make the most of the demo would be to keeping it within the first floor.

Until you meet Lieutenant Marvin Branagh, look for red lights on computer screens and shutter controls to find your way around. Whatever objectives players have at hand it can be sorted out by taking a look at the map in most cases.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Ada Wong First Look

Look for Puzzles
The 1998 survival horror classic had a lot of puzzle scattered around for players to solve that involved collecting a bunch of key items from different places and so does the RE2 Remake. Take a moment and have a closer look at whatever you have gathered so far.

In case if you are wondering about time, the demo clock stops when you enter a menu and that takes a pressure off from players to switch and shuffle the stuffs they collected and safely investigate without worrying about clock ticking out anytime soon.

You may not stumble onto Mr. X chasing your tail throughout the R.P.D. building or bumped into the giant Alligator on the sewers but then again, you have the main game coming out within the following two weeks to experience that.

The "1-Shot" Demo is a sure shot win because whether or not you can complete it, an exclusive cinematic trailer with highlights on full game will be shown to you regardless. On that note, you can pre-order Resident Evil 2 for your preferred platform to get bonus DLC pack and additional contents.

Resident Evil 2 Remake Demo Coming in January

According to a description on Xbox Store, a 1-Shot demo for Resident Evil 2 Remake will arrive on January 11.

Following the much anticipated reveal of upcoming survival horror game Resident Evil 2 Remake at E3 2018 press conference, developer/publisher Capcom released a short live demo video of playing RE2 during PlayStation Live.

Pretty much every other fan of the series and players who love horror games have wished to get at it too. Apparently, you can try out a demo of the game next month before the game finally launches on January 25, 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

According to True Achievements site, a listing description from Microsoft Store reveals that a "Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo" will arrive on January 11 for Xbox One. That means, it will also be available for players on PS4 at the same time.

Even though we are not clear about what they meant by the mentioning of "1-Shot" in the title of it and details say that players can die as many time as they want during the experience but only have only 30 minutes to complete the demo.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Reveals Ada Wong Images

Now whether that means that you can only play the demo for once and then you are done or you just have to complete the run within the 30-minute timeframe. Good thing is that we all won't have to wait too long to find that out.

The clip we saw earlier from a demo showed us rookie cop Leon S. Kennedy going inside the Raccoon City Police Department and encounter a few zombies on his own. It is still unclear that what part or parts of the game will be included in RE2Make 1-Shot.

Even though the title comes out on 25th of the upcoming month, the demo with new puzzles and storylines will remain on stores until January 31st. If you are a fan and looking forward to the release of the game, we strongly recommend you taking this early peak.

The 1998 sequel of Capcom's original masterpiece has been considered as one of the best in the series if not the best video game of all time. So far, the Resident Evil 2 Remake has been well received by the fans because of a faithful reinterpretation of the classic with revolutionary RE Engine.

Mega Man 11 Free Demo for Consoles

Less than a month ahead of release, Capcom releases a free playable demo for Mega Man 11 on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One.

By this time next year, players will get their hands of the eleventh main entry from Mega Man action-platform game series, Mega Man 11 on Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One from developer/publisher Capcom.

Expectations regarding this new title are undoubtedly very high as October 2 slowly approaches towards us. So, a free game demo was released today on consoles for eager fans to try out that how well the new installment stands out before worldwide launch.

We have a brand-new official trailer for the demo at hand that also offers brief moments of glance towards other bosses from the game.




RELATED: Mega Man 11 Release Date

Currently available to download on Switch, PS4 and Xbox One, the demo allows you a single level to explore, which is the pyramid stage you have seen so many times in promo videos and it will lead you to a final face-off against robot master Block Man.

He is apparently a small robot made of blocks who typically uses his ability to drop blocks on his opponents; in this particular case, on Mega Man. A power gear installed within him can transform him to massive size and immense strength.

The other part of the trailer focused on robot master Bounce Man rampaging on the Boing-Boing Park and other debutante robot bosses who will appear for the first time in this game. Being a former exercise instructor, he swings and bounces around to cause trouble to everyone's favorite blue bomber as highlighted in the gameplay from the released video.

Then there are Blast Man, Fuse Man Impact Man and Torch Man to spice things up on various stages throughout the game.

Also, the demo will give players some in-game content to use later in the main game, if enough number of players is able to defeat Block Man before it releases next month. To get an exclusive alternate track for Mega Man 11, pre-order now.

You can enjoy three difficulties modes in the demo and the engaging gameplay will definitely attract newcomers and season veterans of the series to the title. Capcom did not release a Windows PC version of the demo for some unknown reason.

Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season Free Demo

Telltale Games have released a free demo for Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season on consoles.

Based on popular monthly ongoing comic-book series from Image Comics by writer Robert Kirkman (Battle Pope, Haunt), episodic adventure game Telltale’s The Walking Dead has come a long way since 2012 and now almost nearing to a glorious end. Telltale's Walking Dead: The Final Season is about to release the first of intended four episodes on August 14 and developer Telltale Games decides to be generous by offering a free demo to experience on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

Of course, dedicated fans already knows how exhilarating and heart-pounding experience the franchise is known for delivering but because this is the last season and many newcomers want to join in, Telltale have arranged for this demo to enjoy a free ride to the first 15 minutes of journey into the post-apocalyptic world in the shoes of series protagonist Clementine and her young protégé Alvin Jr., who is simply called AJ. Even though relatively short, the demo can still instill shock in you.

This free demo that you are allowed to try on console is basically the same experience of 15-minutes opening sequence walkthrough from episode one released a few days earlier, where along with AJ, Clementine goes out looking for supplies, only to come across a horde and an old threat from past during scavenging. Despite being quite short in length, it gives player a sound idea of how the newly introduced over-the-shoulder camera and unscripted combat system actually works in-game.

It is true that Telltale Games' long-running episodic graphic adventure themed on survival horror element only got better with each installment but arguably, the original is still their best work. In terms of game-playing style and storytelling perspective, Telltale's Walking Dead has only evolved with time. Still using their same old graphics engine for the game, the studio promises to use it for the last time. Players on PC are now waiting for their turn with a free demo anytime soon.

Konami Shuts Down Silent Hills P.T Remake

Publisher Konami has taken down the fan-made Silent Hills P.T Remake by a 17-year-old game developer.

In an attempt to reinvent Silent Hills franchise, video game publisher studio Konami roped in Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) for a collaboration. They came up with P.T. or "Playable Teaser" in 2014 but then suddenly got scrapped even before Kojima left the company. For long it stayed on PlayStation store but was pulled from there in 2015. However, it still existed in places and one recent form was a latest PC port by a dedicated fan.

A 17-year-old game developer going by the name Qimsar has taken over a herculean task of doing a complete remake of the first-person psychological horror for PC. He self-taught himself to do it by using Unreal Engine 4 and have done a commendable job making a port of the game for PC, so that players who have missed out the opportunity to play P.T. on first place can still enjoy it. His attempt of recreating one of the scariest gaming moments in history met with positive response too.

RELATED: Death Stranding Key Poster Released

However, as he was offering this downloadable build to everyone for free on GameJolt, Qimsar expressed concerned over the possibilities of Konami wanting to take it down anytime like any other fan-made games and the bell is finally rung. After his version of the remake gets coverage on social media and gaming sites, his project got the boot and is permanently removed when Konami reached out to him regarding the matter. This doesn't make sense as there are plenty of P.T. remakes still out there.

On GameJolt, Qimsar has detailed the entire phone conversation he had with one of the company representative before taking down the game and they were apparently very nice about the whole thing. Although his game had to be taken down for legal issues but the company stuffs were really impressed seeing his effort. So, they tried to make up for his endeavors by offering him an internship at Konami, which is super cool for him or anyone you know.

Silent Hill series from the 90's had been a staple for horror-fans but after Silent Hill 2, the latter titles were not able to bring back the nightmarish charm it had. Considering P.T. was downloaded over 1,000,000 times, they could've gone with it with their eyes closed. Before the original "Playable Teaser" went to development hell, actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) was involved with it as well. Currently, he and director del Toro are involved in Kojima's upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding.

Silent Hills P.T Remake for PC by Fan

Thanks to a dedicated fan, first-person psychological horror game Silent Hills "Playable Teaser" is being remade and available to play for free!

Before video game legend Hideo Kojima got busy with upcoming PlayStation 4-exclusive action game Death Stranding, he was involved in creating a "playable teaser" for Silent Hills alongside film director Guillermo del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water), which got cancelled eventually. P.T. demo was removed from PlayStation Store upon Kojima's departure from Konami. If you haven't gotten that in time, there were no hope for you to have it but apparently, now you can.

A 17-year-old developer Qimsar is currently working on building a complete remake of the game for PC, so that everyone has a chance to enjoy this cult classic. Of course, it is still on alpha state, the demo looks pretty scary as it should. He also added a shout out to a recently deceased sensational rapper in the very beginning. Qimsar added disconnected movement style, quick changes in camera angles and the hallway that keeps creating loops as it redecorates itself.

Take a brief look at the current state of P.T. remake below by Unreal Engine 4. Although it is in early stages, his work has managed to garner positive feedback for recreating one of the scariest moments of gaming history.

He made quite an impressive progress with the project that is sure to please many P.T. fans. His works and titanic efforts are being appreciated in Reddit threads by community. With brief experience with the Unreal Engine, he has worked hard for about 140 hours to build it up while self-teaching himself many aspects as well. A downloadable build is currently available on GameJolt for free a port of P.T. If anyone is interested to try it out, they can feel free to go ahead and have a shot.

The demo is now in v0.9, using almost all of the original assets but still far from complete. You will notice that there are no animations, some textures are missing and most importantly, no save feature is added to it yet. So expect nothing more than a simple play-testing until the debugging is complete. To get this port finished, he does need help from some animators to complete his work. Considering how much little experience this young developer had before starting the project, his achievement is quite baffling.

Qimsar is very much aware that like any other fan-made games, the developers can takedown his project anytime if they want. However, he has stated that if Konami hits it with a copyright strike, he will personally upload the game to anyone who wants to take a spin while he keeps updating it. The original Playable Teaser dubbed as "7780s Studio" and had actor Norman Reedus (The Boondock Saints, The Walking Dead) involved with the project from beginning until it was scrapped.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Free Trial Weekend

Since the moment developer studio BioWare and publisher Electronic Arts have released Mass Effect: Andromeda this March 2017, there's been some different buzz among the fans. Some, have loved it, some were not-so-nice about the latest release. But if you have been dubious about the game after hearing all that crazy rumor, here is your chance to test the water for yourself. Yes, BioWare has just announced on Twitter that you can have a trial of Mass Effect: Andromeda this weekend.

Mass Effect: Andromeda Free Trial Weekend

Also, the trial is available for all the platforms, which means, you can play it on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Here's the official Tweet regarding the announcement as well as a short reel from the game.



The players can play up to ten hours on the first planet of the game, Eos until entering the first vault and they are able to choose to play both single player and multiplayer. All they need is an EA Origin account and then choose their esteemed platform. After that, they are all set to unleash ten hours of RPG action. There was a new patch for Andromeda released recently, with added difficulty for multiplayer, other improvements and cinematic.

Should anyone choose to continue playing the game, all the progress made during the trial period will be carried over to the full game. So far, Andromeda didn't fare well upon release and especially critics was not somewhat favorable to the game that much. So, hopefully this helps EA change the tide a bit.
