Resident Evil 2 with animations ramped up 500% is a different kind of horror

YouTuber DP023 makes videos that mess with games and particularly their cutscenes—I'm partial to this video of what LA Noire looks like, broken by mods—and the latest game to enjoy this treatment is the remake of Resident Evil 2. Normally its characters have relatively subdued reactions to the horrors going on around them, but with their facial animations turned up by 500% they're transformed into gurning creeps as you'll see in the video above, in which Leon Kennedy's eyes spin around his head while his face goes full chipmunk. Beware spoilers, obviously. 

In the freshly uploaded sequel below, Leon's extra surprised by what happens to Ben in the prison cell. Hell, he's just extra in general. Enjoy the special guest appearance by Ada, too.

Thanks, PCGamesN.

He's written for Rock Paper Shotgun, The Big Issue, GamesRadar, Zam, Glixel, Five Out of Ten Magazine, and, whose cheques with the bunny logo made for fun conversations at the bank. Jody's first article for PC Gamer was about the audio of Alien Isolation, published in 2015, and since then he's written about why Silent Hill belongs on PC, why Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale is the best fantasy shopkeeper tycoon game, and how weird Lost Ark can get. Jody edited PC Gamer Indie from 2017 to 2018, and he eventually lived up to his promise to play every Warhammer videogame.
