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?

More importantly, did they ever find Barry?

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.

Also, didn't this game used to be about zombies?

No. It is about Wesker.

God I love 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.
