Unused, Unheard, and Alternate dialogue of Resident Evil 2
Just the other week, I was in a Resident Evil 2 mood and I got into the whole RE2 history again. So out of curiosity, I decided to explore the known pre-release versions of the Resident Evil 2 to explore if there were anything undocumented in them. I first checked out the BIOHAZARD 2 Trial Disc, which was produced six months before the game was released. My curiosity led me to discover some unused and unheard voice tracks from the final game!
Inside the XAS voice directory, the most interesting discoveries found inside the BIOHAZARD 2 Trial Disc, were the unknown screams and the unheard conversation between Leon and Marvin, the black police officer who gets killed off early in the final version of Resident Evil 2.
I figured that if I was gonna investigate the Trial Disc, I might as well search inside the BETA 2 Prototype too. However -- probably because of BETA 2 being produced closer to the game's final release date (BETA 2 = October 31, 1,997) I didn't find dialogue that was as interesting as the Trial, expect some lines from Ada, and Leon. For the sake of content in the video, I added that unheard Ben (the reporter in the prison cell in the Police Station) line "Agh... son of a...". That was all I found. Not a lot of content, but at least it's something.
I later found out that this particular content is featured at SurvivHor. It may be old news to some but, damn it, I didn't know and no one mentioned it before on The Horror Is Alive, BioFlames, Google, or even here (unless I searched it with the wrong terms), so I decided to make a video about this, and upload it on YouTube for all to see, or in this case, hear.
