2019 gets off to a flying start with Resident Evil 2, a remake that manages to meet some very high expectations in reviving what's arguably the most fondly-remembered point in the series.

As well as why it's such a brilliant remake, guides editor Matthew Reynolds, deputy editor Wesley Yin-Poole and reviews editor Martin Robinson discuss their shameful anecdotes from playing the original Resident Evil games, what Lickers remind (some of) them of, and attempt to predict the next game in Capcom's hot streak of January releases. Deep Down is still coming out, right?
