    Is anyone planning on getting this? I don’t need the refresher before 3 but it is tempting.

    I don’t think I’ll be getting it Fex. I already know where to find sailors.

    No, I never played the originals and every remastered old school game I’ve tried sucks. I’m not blinded by nostalgia so they all suck. Nothing older than last gen remastered for current gen, for me. C’mon, Demon’s for PS4.
