After many requests, Derek walks through the Resident Evil 4 Preview Disk and compares it to the final game
Amazing video, HVGN!
I think the picture of Ashley that Leon shows to the first guy in the game is different than the final product too.
Resident Evil 4 is my favorite game of all time, so I for the first time, I understood everything you mentioned in this video, like for instance where herbs and stuff were. Pretty amazing we can memorize all of that stuff.
That stupid bingo line was the death of RE. -_- lol, which says a lot because all these games have stupid lines like ‘Jill Sandwich’. lol
VERY fun video & ever sense I’ve played this demo I was praying you’d do a video of this. Thank you sir! SAVE THAT DOG!
Good video, Derek…even if I’m not an RE fan.
The chainsaw death is a lot better in then foreign version, I gotta say though.
Saying you don’t like RE4 because you’re not an RE fan is like saying you don’t like Symphony of the Night because you’re not a Castlevania fan.
I’ve always wanted to go back to this game and give it another shot. I just never could get into it for some reason.
The first 3/4 of this game are amazing but it really seems like they phoned it in at the end. the game has probably one of the worst and least satisfying climaxes of any game I’ve ever played. This is made even worse by the fact that it is preceded by such a strong build-up
Shit I forgot I was on Calvin’s computer. But my point remains valid.
Good stuff Derek, as usual.
One minor thing, I’ve seen the Villagers do that different pitchfork attack a few times in merc mode, I have no idea what causes it and it definitely is irritatingly powerful and hard to dodge.
NEXT LEVEL SHIT
you should totally review RE5 and 6
Excellent comparison! I never would have thought that there would have been so many differences.
“WHY WOULDN’T YOU SAVE THE DOG!? SAVE THAT DOG!!!”
Best line in an awesome video.
Capcom was right in changing what the villagers say. In the demo they just say gibberish (which I think would have pissed many Spanish speakers). In the game at least they say un forastero! (a stranger/outsider!)
Nice video. Now go home and play bingo!
My problem with RE4 is I was never scared except in the VERY beginning because I treated it as a traditional RE game. Once I got the shotgun it just became one gigantic joke to me. It was a decent “kill shit” game, but if I really wanted a great experience to just kill shit I’d play DOOM.
Interesting changes, especially the yellow herb. I also read an FAQ once that mentions something about a note concerning Dr. Salvador (chainsaw man) and how it says he is immortal.
Anything about that in the demo, Derek?
Ready to get super nerdy? Both “safe” and “safely” are correct. The way they use “safe” makes the sentence mean (effectively) “make sure she is safe after you have rescued her.” Changing it to “safely” makes it an adverb and changes the meaning to “make sure you are keeping her safe while you are in the process of rescuing her.”
Either works in this case.
8:45. WHY WOULDN’T YOU SAVE THE DOG? SAVE THAT DOG!
chainsaw guy is my mortal enemy. whenever i play re4, like half of my deaths are via chainsaw.
I might have an explanation for the different dialogue for the Ganados. Might be slightly long-winded. Bare with me here.
You see, they speak Spanish. Shocker, I know. Now, I also speak Spanish, and everything they say is pretty much easy to understand.
For example, the piece of dialogue you used as comparison is: “UN FORASTERO!”; which means: “(Un – One/Single Object = A/An) FOREIGNER!” or “OUTSIDER!”.
The phrase on the Demo, though, seems to mean absolutely nothing but gibberish.
My guesses are as follow:
1) The Spanish vocal acting had not been completed for the final version, and they replaced it with gibberish as a temporary stand-up for the American crowd who, admittedly, probably wouldn’t know any better.
2) You can clearly hear, at the beginning of their sentence at the village, that the Ganado says: “Oi! (…) gibberish.”. “Oi!” is a typical Japanese mannerism used to call attention to something, which MAY indicate that the gibberish we hear are either the Japanese take on common Spanish (which apparently sucks ass) or the fact that may not speak Spanish in the final Japanese version whatsoever.
Just thought it might be interesting to share.
Love the video Derek. And I have to agree with you on how badass RE4 is, it’s actually my 4th fav game of all time.(I feel like tellin’ a bit of a story so here goes) I’m actually pretty fanatical about this game I played the shit out of this I seriously went through it 52 times on the Gamecube alone(and keep in mind I was 9&10 at the time)! I had all the specials(except that damn hand cannon!(more later) with who knows HOW MANY million extra pesetas… but tragedy struck, the file was accidentally deleted(BY ME). I wasn’t totally crushed, I was easing back on it a bit, but later I played thru 6 times more I believe. I couldn’t continue after disc 2 vanished. But years later I got to play it on the Wii loved it, played through 7 times, but this time got EVERYTHING! Even that hand cannon from Mercenaries which eluded Me, my Uncle(who got me hooked on the game), my brother, and cousin for the whole time we had it, just 2 stages for Leon and Hunk STUMPED us all, and finally years of effort for that last treasure *inhales* WORTH IT!! m/
Dude, you were freakin’ hilarious in this one.
You are now aware that the Resi 6 logo looks like a chick blowing a giraffe.
In the European version you get the full beheading sequence just like in Bio hazard 4
Yo Derek, you know theres two chainsaw guys in the village right? The one you see by the door has a Ruby when you kill him but the one you see when going into the two story house has like 10000 Pesetas when you kill him. Protip.
Do yourself a favour, don’t play 5 since it is no where near as good as 4 and it straight up ruins it.
