And paid off it did : Resident Evil 2 was finally released in 1998, becoming one of the biggest successes ever for the company (and when we're talking about Capcom, it means something), the fastest-selling game in the history of the console so far (beating the shit out of Final Fantasy VII record, for example), and one of the most successful games in the franchise so far. It was later rereleased as another Dual Shock version, then ported for Windows 9x, N64, Dreamcast and Gamecube.
It was even "ported" on Tiger Electronics ill-fated Game.com handheld, leading to a really weird piece of gaming history that you can witness here. Just look at that! I'd love to try this one someday, I'm really amazed this thing exists...

For the sake of this blog, I'll experiment the two story lines as well, starting with Claire's (ladies first) then switching to Leon, to see if playing it twice in a row still has an interest. I'll be playing on my Gamecube disc inserted in my Wii. I know it's a long shot from the original version, but considering it's supposed to be a perfect emulation of the Playstation version, it won't make a real difference.
Plus, I've already bought the game for my Playstation, then for my Gamecube, so it's absolutely out of the question that I'd buy it a third time on the PSN, even for a mere 6 bucks (yeah, I'm still mad at you, Sony).
