The things that are simular is the topic! I want to know if anyone has noticed anything simular between the two series. what Ive noticed.

The Chess Plugs used in RE2 are very much alike with the plugs used to get medical and weapon supplies in Dino Crisis. I know I have more, but what are things you've noticed. If this topic is R-Tarded, close it. :)

Just kidding. I like Dino Crisis, tried out the first one, bought the second.

hmm ok what i've found out Jills voice, is just like Regenias :o
and i need to play the games again, but i'm sure they've used the same sounds for both games in some sections.

I think the biggest influence, which we've discussed at various points, is Dino Crisis 2 on a number of other Capcom titles, Resident Evil 4 included. It was a spectacularly awesome game released sadly too late to get the exposure and sales it deserved.

Jill in RE3 was voiced by Catherine Disher, and Regina was voiced by Stephanie Morgenstern. Morgenstern's voice is tad nasal.

Lol, that's a good descriptive word: "nasal".

Yeah and there's always that unlockable costume in nemesis which was just regina really,

i didnt mind dino crisis, it was perhaps a little too long winded but i liked it having various endings.

In RE 3 there was the Dino Crisis outfit that Jill could wear. Maybe this was there way of saying that they were similar.

Wasn't some of the crates in DC1 supposed to be marked like the umbrella ones in RE? Although its not considered a cannon game Dino stalker had a part where you drove past an umbrella building forgot what level it was on.

I love DC, especially the second one! The second one was way better than the first.

I've always liked Regina. Somewhat moreso than Jill.

And I also preferred the first Dino Crisis. Although it's a very close shave with the second. The first just had a terrific atmosphere.

When I first played no.1 I always felt regina was waiting for Gail to turn into a traitor at any given moment.

I agree with you that the first Dino Crisis was the best one. Like you said the atmosphere was great. I also think the puzzles were far better. I liked playing Dino Crisis 2 though but more for the fun.

Yeah I got that impression too. Like in the beginning when she accused him of tearing open the fence. She was always like "what are you doing here" and "I don't trust my own team mate blah blah blah".

DC1 did feel a bit more like a RE game in the sense of the game structure. Such as specific scares, low ammo, and files/item collecting.

I just like the second one more since it was more enjoyable to play, but Regina seemed like a b**ch to Dylan all the time.

I just hope that Capcom make a sequel set after the events of the 2nd game, where Regina is trying to get back to the point in time at the end to save both Dylan and Paula.

Is this a promo screen or an actual in-game background? If so, what version? That's the highest resolution I've ever seen for an RE3 background. O_o

FeurMensch

I think it's from the PC version since that version had higher res backgrounds.

Project Omega

Yeah, that image is from my PC background rip. If only the PSX BG rips looked that good...

what about using PS3 smoothing system on the ps1 games :)

Umon Daisuke

Smoothing doesn't cover whatever is not there (ie. pixels, since the original PS version ran at a lower resolution). Upscaling/smoothing is also a mixed bag. It only makes things look truly better if you have a CRT HDTV (1080i upscaling). Games like RE4 looked actually pretty good upscaled on my old CRT, and horrendous on LCD (and I do have the best LCD currently on the market).

The DC version on the other hand was based on the PC code, and it has full SD (640x480) backgrounds. If it weren't for the controller, that version was the best. CG was lower frame rate, but the graphics got a bit of a bump and audio was actually better.

agreed on the graphics and audio on the GC. But my RE4 on PS2 will have to do! :D

I loved Dino Crisis, and i respect it for bowing out gracefully after going into space and realising it really had went up its own arse.

The fact of existence of DC3 must deleted from the memory of the humanity, for me the serious ended on DC2, it's still one of my favorite games.

RE3 PC has such hi-res backgrounds... they look awesome.

Umon Daisuke: We have a 26" 1080i Samsung CRT HDTV and PSX games look really good on PS3 with upscaling. I can't confirm PS2 since my brother cheap'd out and got a PS3 that doesn't support PS2 games :( . Still......

To comment on smoothing, it makes everything look a little blurry. Especially on RE1/RE2. They look like they are using "Super Eagle" video renderer that is found in emulators....

I consider the DC port of Bio2 to be the most superior of the bunch. It had a high fps, full screen DVD quality cut scenes, and all the PC extras. Clearly the winner. The DC controller isn't bad though, I like it more than the NGC's.

The only thing I didn't like about the DC controller was the placement of the cord. Didn't feel natural to me.
