Completely agree, I always thought Bruce and Leon were too samilar. When I was a kid I thought they were the same person LOL XDHonestly, I am over boats in RE. Dead Aim, RE5, Revelations, RE7 all have major boat levels/areas. Unless they did something with those titles, no more boats! The boat section of RE7 is where that game started to really drift away from the greatness of the beginning.
But you are definitely right that there is not a big need for Bruce and Fong Ling. At least Fong Ling has a different archetype from Ada. But Bruce is just Leon with different hair. haha.
