Player Beats Resident Evil 2 Remake on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

The long-awaited horror remake of Resident Evil 2 is a cakewalk for YouTuber CarcinogenSDA and here a "no-hit" walkthrough run by him.

Fans of survival horror game are having a great time with the recently released Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, a considerable number of people are failing to enjoy it because they find it too difficult.

Amidst many complain of newcomers that are unable to get past the police station or constantly getting their butt handed to them by Mr. X, we came across a playthrough of RE2 Remake by a player where he completes "Leon A" story with ease, taking no damage.

Our guy CarcinogenSDA is good at what he does and what he does is speed-running and "no-hit" walkthrough runs on a variety of video games. When it comes to Resident Evil series, he is a professional in completing the titles with an unmatched level of skills.

Going through the highest difficulty mode was to prove a point that even though tricky, it can be done. Best part of the whole experience was the inclusion of every cut-scene alongside the helpful commentary for those who need some tips.

You might want to take note on why you should shoot the knees off a zombie rather than trying to get a headshot as they do not always blow their brains out for good. The terrifying trench coat wearing Tyrant bio-weapon doesn't seem to give him any tough time either.

Another grand take from this video is masterful inventory management and using the right weapons for each enemy type. Although the entire playthrough is done on PC version, it wouldn't hurt console players can take a look as well.

So, it's time to quit whining about zombies being bullet sponges, Mr. X is giving you a hard time by being too persuasive, weapons are weak and get your ass back in the game trying to "git gud" instead, because only that would really help you other than anything.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is actually everything you want in a remake and then some more but it is also obvious that not everyone is an ace survivor who can overcome the Raccoon City outbreak like a walk in the park even on our best day and that is okay.

Escape from Tarkov Devs Hits Another YouTuber With DMCA

After going against Eroktic, Escape from Tarkov developers tries to silence another YouTuber with DMCA complaints.

Although Digital Millennium Copyright Act was meant for movie, music or video game industry to have legal rights over the unauthorized use of their intellectual property, it has been used by many to harass streamers on YouTube and Twitch lately.

What happens here is that developer Battlestate Games of multiplayer tactical shooter game Escape from Tarkov repeating an act of misusing DMCA complaints on a content creator on YouTube after doing the same thing last month for the same reason.

Right after that news caught enough attention, another YouTuber running the handle "EL_Dee" came out sharing a similar story of receiving 47 claims from DMCA for video content on EFT for the given reason of using the watermark and logo of the Russian studio.

This is clearly a ridiculous excuse to hit someone with DMCA takedowns over false accusations by the developer team, because every other content creator does so. EL_Dee claims that their channel was singled out for allegedly creating "negative hype".

RELATED: Metro Exodus Will Be on Epic Games Store, Leaving Steam

When reached out for comments, a representative of Battlestate informed after a month stating that the claims were submitted almost 8 months ago by a company named AbsolutSoft, who were working on parts of the game then.

They also said that after their situation with Eroktic earlier, they are being very careful with anything that led to legal process. However, AbsolutSoft is a subcontractor for them and has links to their game producer Nikita Buyanov.

RELATED: Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

Even though developers are unwilling to take any responsibility over this, Buyanov himself requested EL_Dee personally to take down his negative videos from YouTube before the channel got hit with claims. You can see screenshot of that posted on Reddit.

Whether or not Battlestate or Buyanov was involved against EL_Dee to issue those DMCA complaints, the studio is trying to evade any involvement and is avoiding any responsibility for causing these creators lose money from videos.

RELATED: OVERKILL's The Walking Dead for Consoles Delayed Again

In December 2018, Battlestate Games have chose to abuse DMCA by issuing over 47 copyright strikes against YouTube channel Eroktic, saying the videos were spreading negative hype using inaccurate information and even tried justifying their action.

When this news hit the web, both the community of players and other content creators rallied up in his support and Battlestate took back all of their claims except two. However, their unethical business practices made everyone distasteful at them.

RELATED: Bungie Acquires Destiny from Activision

In both of the cases, Battlestate actually had no problem with the YouTubers using their content. In fact, what they were trying to do was hold back negative hype being created from their video as Eroktic originally exposed a leak of two million player profiles.

Of course the goal of DMCA was to give content creators and copyright holders the means to fight back anyone using their material without consent but if a corporation decides to exploit its merits to shut down any criticism, it is a real concern for everyone.

We agree that his eyes look kind of creepy and his mouth doesn't move when dialogues are delivered in Leon's voice but that is because it was never really meant for playing and Capcom probably didn't mean to reveal the model either.

The most obvious issue with this model that you cannot ignore is that his guns were not animated properly and that is why, they will be floating around him when player tries to holster them. To be fair, it was an unfinished model.

Capcom may switch back to third-person mode for Resident Evil 8 following the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake.

Only a few days after the launch, Resident Evil 2 Remake has shown a massive success in terms of both reviews and sales, which obviously making developer/publisher Capcom very happy and think about their next step with RE franchise.

A re-imagination of original survival horror classic, RE2 Remake opened up the possibility of a Resident Evil 3 Remake but at the same time, the series has a lot of potential to go ahead with an inevitable inception of Resident Evil 8 as well.

So, the next Resident Evil game and the one after that was about to follow the first-person perspective for player. However, recent report suggests that Capcom is now planning to switch back to third-person mode for their next game after RE2Make received critical and commercial success.

Apparently, Evil VR previously Tweeted about 30 minutes "1-Shot" Demo before it was revealed by the publisher, in case you are looking for credibility of the source. The revealed details are not out of place either if you have been following the franchise.

Back in the day, Resident Evil 2 was scrapped after completing almost 60% of the development and was dubbed Resident Evil 1.5. Female protagonist character Elza Walker costume from that build is included in Deluxe Edition and Collector's Edition of RE2 as a skin for Claire Redfield.

Similarly, initial concept of Resident Evil 4 was made into Devil May Cry series and another version was canned for technical limitations. Concepts of a nightmarish enemy armed with a metal hook labeled as the Hook Man from RE 3.5 may also be adapted to the next game.

The studio originally planned for Leon Kennedy to get infected by a virus that would cause him to suffer from hallucinations and see ghostly apparitions in RE4, which will likely be borrowed to Resident Evil 8 from the Hook Man version.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Deluxe Edition Content

Evil VR has added that even though developers are exploring origin of Eveline and other theory, they would not complete RE8 before the rumored Resident Evil 3 Remake. Although open for more remakes, the studio is not interested in a remake of Resident Evil: Code Veronica.

Despite all the rumors for Capcom to overhaul Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, they noted that the success of Resident Evil 2 Remake will determine the future of a follow-up project and judging by fan response, it is pretty safe to brace ourselves for Nemesis to come chasing.

For now, we advise you to take the news with a grain of salt since none of these are from official source but then again, don't you think the gameplay mechanics of RE2 blending into the storyline of Biohazard saga would be kind of awesome to experience?
