Anyone else taken a crack at it?

My take is that, predictable gore aside, this is actually a pretty fucking weird game underneath. It's like they took the main elements of Amnesia etc and then added a bunch of Resident Evil details around the edges. Which sounds shit, but somehow they sort of made it work? Fuck knows how, but I'm up at 6AM playing it so there's definitely something there.

It couldn't be less like RE6 if it tried; it is different in every way. I'll give them credit for taking the risk on rebooting a franchise so hard.

I'm still not sure if I actually like it, though.

In the end I decided I really liked it. The last level of the game is a bit dull and uninspired, but other than that it's a pretty remarkable game, and as reboots go they don't come much more fundamental than this.

First time they had an English-language scriptwriter too, apparently, and that's pretty obvious on reflection. There's little to none of the kind of campy b-movie bollocks that you got in the predecessors; it's unlikely to win any awards for its narrative, but at times it does manage to be kind of shocking, rather than just entertainingly dumb.

(Also the first time I used one of those kind of sketchy Steam Key re-seller sites. It worked, and I'm not banned? I don't think I'll be making a habit of it, though)

I'll only play it if Wesker is in it. Is Wesker in it?

I just looked up some gameplay footage and jumped out of my fucking skin when something that looked like a real life actress popped up in front of the screen, when I was really expecting something that looked more like the image.

No. It is about Wesker.

I've continued watching the play through, very cinematic. Extremely gory at points, but easy to forget that was always a part of the RE games. The chainsaw duel is hilarious.

The gore is particularly visceral, especially since it's in first-person.

The game was kind of designed for VR but I think it'd be too much for me.

A lot of people have had to quit playing it in VR, I've heard. Would love to try it but I'm poor.

Same. It's going to be a few years before decent kit becomes affordable, unfortunately.

The game is shit as a Resident Evil title, and that's when compared to both halves of the series (action and horror). Too many scripted sequences killing new playthroughs of the game, the acid fucks can stun lock you on madhouse and there's no real reason to play the game more than once unless you're a trophy fag

It's good enough that you completed it and then started again on Madhouse, though, eh?

Generally I like achievements if they actually add something to the experience. "Rack up 10,000 kills" or whatever is pretty dull. RE7 has a few interesting ones - "Just Get Me Outta Here" (completing the game in under four hours) in particular was great fun. Guess that makes me a "trophy fag".

The DLC so far was pretty enjoyable, anyone else pick it up? I quite liked the card game, though it's got a lot of shit online. The "Misery"-like mini game where you're stuck in a bedroom with Maguerite checking on you is fantastic. I didn't get on so well with Jack's Birthday eating competition, but hey ho, got my money's worth with the rest.

Unfortunately the substantial free DLC that was supposed to arrive this spring (attached) has been delayed. I'm fine with that as long as it's good when it finally drops. Can't argue with the price, either.

The "Not a Hero" DLC was actually released a couple of days ago. iI's good but a bit short.

I've been playing the Resident Evil 2 Remake again. I finished it when it was new but didn't really rate it. I think I might've been a bit harsh though, it's certainly well put together. They also added a bunch of content post-launch, for free. Most of the RE games have challenge-mode stuff, usually it doesn't do much for me, but there's a respectable amount of effort gone into it on this one.

The remake of 3 is around the corner, apparently there should be a demo out sometime soon. Look at those chompers, gs.

I'm more worried about the inevitable gingivitis infection from a bite from Nemesis than the massive chunk of flesh being torn off or being turned in to a zombie.

God I fucking loved Resident Evil 3. I never actually finished it as a kid, even on easy. I always fucked around with the seemingly infinite weapons and then only had scrounged 9mm ammo for the boss fights. I remember a courtyard in a hollow square shaped brown building, I think there was a chopper crash. Then I got one of those 100% completed memory cards with a magazine and just fucked around as Carlos for a while.

The series didn't really kick off for me until I played 4. I then went back and at least had a crack the rest, but 3, Code Veronica, and Zero didn't stick.

I always thought that Nemesis looked a wee bit daft, almost arthritic somehow, like it could be defeated by a slightly too-high curb. This impression probably comes mostly from that appalling movie, Apocalypse.

What did you lads think of Resi 6? I hated it when it came out but went back to it and had quite a bit of fun. It's trash (but so are most of the games) but it was pretty solid and the campaigns all felt very distinct. Story was the worst in the series which is an achievement, but the gunplay was pretty good and I admire how ridiculous it got. I think they'd struggle to up the ante in a sequel and people were turning against the action focus, so I see why they went back to a more grounded story in 7, but part of me wants to see another action packed Resi.

It felt to me like the Japanese developers who made that game were pretty ambivalent about this third-person-shooter dross for Americans that Capcom were making them shit out. There was evidence of a huge budget, but the action felt derivative and dull. I should give it another go, just to see if that still rings true.

it's an incredible, content packed, OTT action shooter with a million context based mellee attacks you might only ever see once but they went and animated them anyway. It's FUN, but it's so far from the early days of RE that it sent people a bit off.

Lots of people have pictures of them up in multiple places, it just happens that in this case they're closer together.

Did anyone see the trailer last week for Resident Evil Village (Resi 8)? Looks intriguing. Ethan and Chris return, looks to be witchcraft and werewolves, set in a snowy European village with a large castle. It's nice to see them trying new stuff with 7 and 8 while sticking to their roots with the 2 and 3 remakes. Capcom are really on a roll lately.

One of my weird guilty pleasures is watching people play these zombie games on youtube.

I hate watching these things, I don't get Twitch or anything like that yet did really enjoy some Youtuber playing through the one where they're in the deep south house.

Anyway, if there's a new one and somebody has a link to a play through please do share.
