- Who was your favorite "stalker enemy" in recent resident evil games?
Jack. He is funny but also scary as fuck especially on Madhouse.ID: hlgn5en
getting to the first safe room on madhouse is one of the hardest parts in the game imoID: hli8956
His "may I talk to the manager" walk is so intimidatingID: hlgoa7w
Yeah, and know I’m too scared to even try to get past him on easyID: hlh3tli
Madhouse was one of the best hardmodes there is. Made the first quarter just as scary as it was the first time.ID: hlhntpi
I couldn’t even get past the first Mia fight. Always ended up using all my bullets through headshots and then dying when I tried to finish her off with the axeID: hlhx74n
Agree 100%. Just wish they changed more up later in the game but they still put more effort into madhouse than most devs with their respective games last difficulty.ID: hlhlnrh
Yeah. I love Mr. X, but for me it's Jack. He is too expressive and often reacts to the player's actions, which makes him 100 times scarier. Jack Brand did an amazing job voicing him. Jack's only negative is that his chase sections are very short. He doesn't have as much presence as Mr. X.
I also recommend everyone watch this video about Jack's AI.
How Does Jack Baker Work Off Camera Resident Evil 7
“AWWWW YEAH, IM GUNNA TAKE YOU FOR A RIDE”ID: hlfw0hc
Proceeds to throw Ethan out of the car he was trying to useID: hlg2jd7
“Nice car, Ethan! Hehe, mind if I take it for a spin?”ID: hlg3l68
"Ethan? Ethan? EEEEEEETHAAAAAN "ID: hlgnj1w
“You know I’ll find you, and when I do……”ID: hlhd0s2
Godddddammmnnn!!! Uggggh! How am I gonna replace this?ID: hlhf6n2
Jack had the best AI and the best scripted moments of the four.
Jack was the scariest for me, not sure why, just how insane, and unstoppable he was, how he would gleefully taunt you and stuff. Mr X a close second tho, those footsteps...ID: hlhbs48
I turn the game off and still hear the footsteps
Jack Baker was by far the most fun to deal with but never really surprised me except a couple times within the first run... Mr. X on the other hand has the superior chase mechanics and a better set of moves.ID: hlg1k1s
On hardcore mr x was a pain in the assID: hlg3b70
Yeah, he's huge, I imagine he's packingID: hlgentw
He’s also packing a huge assID: hlgdyo9
Agree and also when being chased by jack he was talking with you and shit but Mr X was just quiet. Only thing you could hear was his footsteps in a distance..and then X gave it to you..ID: hlh1m71
RE2’s level design lends itself best to the “stalker enemy” mechanic.
Definitely Big Daddy Baker. I found a lot of humor in Jacks voice lines, I adored kiting him just to hear his goofy/intimidating linesID: hlfmpkr
Jack is the only one who made me scream out loud out of these. There's one part Where he breaks through the wall from the kitchen into the hallway and it's MISSABLE, is the thing, I had never seen it on previous playthroughs and it scared the fucking shit out of me.ID: hlgd9j4
Even rarer than that, he can cut your leg off and you reattach it with a healing item, which is pretty big in light of RE8ID: hlfnqgy
Oh my god the first time it happened I almost shit.ID: hlfsclx
Dude the way I thought that could only happen during the initial dinner encounter, so when I came out of the safe room later in the game and ran down the hallway (he wasn’t even there so I guess the game teleported him) and this man BUSTED through the wall like fuckin kool-aid man in this bitch, scared the fucking shit outta meID: hlfoupz
I think I got that on the first playthrough. I made a little poopy.ID: hlgkj29
That is one of my favorite moments in recent RE games. Mr. X does something similar in RE2 where he can break through the wall from the Press Room into the hallway outside the Interrogation Room. I’ve played/seen about 15ish runs of the game between my fiancée and my platinums of it and I’ve only seen it happen twice so I really wasn’t expecting it. Absolutely terrified me.ID: hlfl4i8
Ethan! Ethaaaaaan.....ID: hlfmgf8
“That’s not groovy!”ID: hlgoy88
I love during the last fight with him when he just randomly says "fuck you." I don't know why, it just cracks me up.
Mr X because he scares the shit out of me. That thud sound as he gets closer and closer. Daddy Baker a close second but Resi Evil 7 is creepy as hell 24/7.
As how awesome Mr. X, The Nemesis, and Alcina are in Resident Evil's 2 and 3 remake and 8 I have to go for Jack Baker.
Big mummy milkers was only on screen for about 5 minutesID: hlgsp3s
Well- she was fun to look at, even though I was usually running away and could not see her…
I forget Jack even stalks you.ID: hlffsfr
Yea he should've had more moments of stalking in the game.ID: hlfnzdy
It’s more of a madhouse feature than the normal game.
They are all good but there is something about Jack that was really terrifying. Just makes your skin crawl
Jack and X both made me scream like a girl
Both times I ran into the save room to avoid them saved and then went back out. Jack got me worse as he shouted “Did you miss me?” and rounded the corner as I did
Easily between Jack or Mr X, neither Nemesis or Lady D had enough room in their respective environments to truly be menacing. What do I mean by this? Jack or Mr. X caught me up multiple times (snuck up on me), forcing me to think on the fly and replan my routes. That never happened with Nemesis or Lady D, I was always 1 step ahead of them, which completely undermines their role as a stalker. It's not necessarily the fault of their AIs persay, more the result of the environments in which they were deployed in. Where the Baker estate and the RPD have multiple pathways in and out of most rooms, RE3s streets and RE8s Castle are more linear in their designs with less options to take (and less ways for you to be caught off guard or snuck up on).
Baker with ease.
I think Mr. X was the best executed stalker. Nemesis was only there to push you to the next segment. Lady D didn't have balance, you couldn't stop her you could only run. Jack is my second favorite because he could be stopped but didn't have the balance X had.
I dunno about ‘favorite’ because anxiety is real, but Jack definitely got the biggest response out of me.
Jack Baker was a pain in the ass because of how slow Ethan moves in 7. Seriously, it's like that man's never had a leg day.
Remake Nemesis is a little terrifying but only appearing in scripted sequences was a let down. Felt less like Mr X with a grapplehook like I expected and more like a way to keep players moving forward.
Lady D barely appeared for me outside of one or two scripted parts. She do be thiccer than a Snickers tho..
Mr X is the best. He's fashionable, he's surprising, he's terrifying, he's great.
Jack was too limited, nemmy was a flat out dissapointment, and alcina was too slow in big open spaces. But mr x...he was awesome
