Ah, shit. Here we go again. There’s another Resident Evil 2 Remake mod that swaps out Mr. X, and this time he’s replaced by a surprisingly funny and apropos Big Smoke from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
As spied today over on Kotaku, the mod also includes three-time all-ACC wide receiver C.J. (before he picks up some new threads at the Ganton Binco, apparently). Smoke and C.J. have audio cues for their attacks, grabs and counter-grabs, plus busting through doors, going down and dying.
Perhaps it’s not as nutso as Thomas the Tank Engine choo-chooing inexorably down a darkened hallway. But C.J. getting facepalmed off the ground while he wails, “It’s me Big Smoke! Chill! Chill!” is its own brand of funny. And given C.J.’s history with the unctuous, falsely wise Smoke, the mod puts a classic confrontation in a new venue. BeastGaming, makers of the mod, credit one Marcos RC with doing the character model importing from San Andreas.
