Incidentally, in case anyone is interested, Lady Dimitrescu is loosely based on a real person, Elizabeth Bathory, the most prolific serial killer in recorded human history. Bathory is one half of the inspiration for Dracula and the original vampire myth - Dracula is a combination of Elizabeth Bathory and Vlad the Impaler (Bram Stoker combined the two figures from history to create the character Dracula.) Elizabeth Bathory was a countess of a village in Eastern Europe. She was also a psychotic sexual sadist who would have women and young girls from the village brought to her castle (under the guise of recruiting them as maids) where she would torture and murder them. She also drained their bodies of blood and bathed in it because she believed this would somehow extend her lifespan. I believe the final body count was over 500 women and girls, and eventually the aristocracy put a stop to her because she was actually harming the economy and labor force in that area because she was killing so many women - it was literally getting to the point where soon there wouldn't be enough _people_ born to keep the economy going, that's how many women she murdered. There's a nonsense narrative floated about in....let's just say "certain" circles, that E Bathory was actually a _good_ person and a healer, and her tortures were actually botched attempts at healing the sick. This narrative is complete garbage, however, and total revisionist history and isn't backed up by any evidence whatsoever. Capcom actually put a surprising amount of references to Bathory in RE8 I'm surprised more people have noticed Lady Dimitrescu is based on her.

Okay I'm going to play seven before I get resident evil village. I've never ever played fallout 76 and I was going to get it just because I've heard good things now that they have NPCs. But I think I'm not going to get it. I can't ignore the trash that they sold most players in 2018. I'm also super pumped for dying light too but I believe that they changed direction in the game and by that I mean they limited the choices in the story that you can change or decide for yourself I should say.

why vampires, warewolves, and gargoyles? i miss when resident evil was about zombies and a virus business involvement. RE3 is the best for this then at RE4 was when I quit playing because it was humans with plant like parasites and action sequences that want me to memorize buttons to press at the right moment. I didn't sign up for guitar hero. so at least this game didn't have any Mario Party encounters.

I was really enjoying the game until I got to the Heisenburg or whatever area. A million bulletsponge enemies that just DON'T stop coming. Stupid drills and crap. So unnecessary the amount of bullets needed
I must admit, I'm a bit miffed Resi has gone down the FPS route. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy FPS games, but we have SO MANY great ones already and I also LOVE 3rd person games, which sadly feel like they are becoming fewer and further between in this sort of action/adventure genre. Yes, there are some top games, like Tomb Raider, Uncharted, Last of Us, Horizon Dawn, etc, but the good ones only seem to arrive once or twice a year. Good FPS games feel far more common to me (but maybe I'm wrong & that's just my perception). Resident Evil used to be one of the great 3rd person action/survival horror/adventure titles and I don't really get why they would switch it up to an FPS personally. I just feel this format, with heavy storylines, works better in 3rd person and 1st person works better in more action driven games like CoD. Part of the problem for me is that I get no feeling toward the character I'm playing in 1st person, which kind of sucks in a story driven game. My character feels faceless and generic. I still enjoyed Resi 7 and probably will this too, but I would definitely have enjoyed the experience much more had they stuck to the 3rd person formula. I know that everyone is different, but when a game is already known and established itself in a particular format I don't get why they would change it and risk alienating fans just so they can appeal to others. It's weird.

I personally think RE7 is more of horror than RE8. Both are fun, but RE7 has more of horror and the terrifying feel that you get when moving around and doing stuff. I would say its due to the closed environment of resident evil 7 while 8 is more open and feels less scary due to that

Am I the only one disappointed in RE Village, because they had a cool setting this time around, like Romania, and no one character has a Romanian name. Is like the devs don't even acknowledge that Romania isn't some russian/slavic country but a latin one. Every time I hear that dimitresk name pisses me off.

After 25 years of milking the Resident Evil franchise Capcom has run out of ideas. Sure all these kids today will say "it's a cool game" "awesome" but the truth is that Capcom lost whatever brought them to the dance in regards to RE. Resident Evil has become just another game. Capcom forgot that the element in the franchise was survival horror and zombies.

Apart from the graphics I wasn't that impressed. It felt like an amalgamation of Res 4 and Res 7 but wasn't as good as either. The game mechanics were tired, the guns lacked impact, the enemies were 'meh' and the factory level was just a slog. My recommendation would be to wait a year until it's on sale as it's not worth the full price. Res 4 is still the king IMHO!

I don't understand how you can have this objection to RE7+8's story being a departure from "classic Resident Evil" when RE4, 5 and 6 were _also_ a departure from Resident Evil. Seriously, RE4's story isn't just garbage, it had ZERO to do with the existing Resident Evil story line and lore. Far, far worse of a departure than RE7 or 8. RE5 and 6's stories at least had _something_ to do with Resident Evil but they were so bad (horrifically in the case of RE6) that it didn't matter. So I don't see how anyone can complain about RE7 and 8 not "feeling like Resident Evil enough" when the previous 3 games were 1000x worse in that regard. I mean, Resident Evil 6 might as well have been called "Gears of Evil"... After the calamity that was Resident Evil 6 I swore I was done with the entire franchise because it was clear Capcom didn't understand their own series anymore. Resident Evil 7 pulled me back in precisely because it was so different from the previous 3 titles and the story seemed like it had nothing to do with either the original trilogy or 4-6, and I was curious to see how its story played out. What I got was a fantastic survival horror experience that puts you into the shoes of a new character to the Resident Evil series, a random civilian who has zero knowledge of past Resident Evil characters and events, and as such the events through his eyes look like a completely different genre of horror, i.e Texas Chainsaw / The Hills Have Eyes, cannibal serial killers horror. The sense of mystery of how this "serial killer family" scenario could possibly be related to established Resident Evil lore, and gradually unravelling that mystery as you progressed through the game, was spectacular in my opinion. I came away from 7 elated with it precisely because it went in such a bizarre and new direction from the previous games. I was apprehensive about 8 because, honestly, it looked nonsensical, like they just plucked the protagonist from RE7 and dropped him in Transylvania fighting vampires and werewolves, and I didn't see how they could possibly connect that to RE7 _or_ previous Resident Evil lore - but god-damn, did they pull it off! :D The last 20 minutes of RE8 where everything comes together and makes sense (and a certain someone from RE7 makes a brief and disturbing reappearance) is sublime. I for one am really digging this new approach Capcom is taking with Resident Evil, where each new game now has a story and scenario that seems totally unrelated to Resident Evil and in completely different sub-genres of horror (cannibal serial killers in RE7, Bram Stoker supernatural monsters in RE8) and as you progress through the game you slowly discover the biological weapons story line that's underpinning everything and connects it back to "Resident Evil". I love this. I hope they continue with it. I want RE9 to be about a totally new character once again and with a seemingly un-Resident Evil story in a different sub-genre of horror that slowly reveals itself to be a classic Resident Evil scenario in disguise. If they had taken this approach after Resident Evil 3 I would probably have been disappointed with it, like you - but considering I was _already_ disappointed with Resident Evil 4, 5 and 6 (especially 6) and _already_ considered them complete bastardizations of what Resident Evil was originally supposed to be, I consider this now to be a positive step UP for the series. Just my opinion. You don't have to agree.

CAPCOM cut contents in RE3 remake to save them for RE Village. You can see the castle interior, Heisenberg factory, Moreau giant fish movement, Moreau fight, and village graveyard similar to what the original RE3 had. I hope you can guess.

5 hours in, this ones bad guys, its not good. The greatest parts so far are in the demo. Theres nothing but frustrating, aimless circling, Puzzles with written instruction that appear to not be translated correctly, resulting in nonsense instead of a hint or instruction for the puzzle. No direction what so ever. No idea why the universe changed so drastically. 3/10/ or D for Dog Shit. Keep a Walkthrough up for this one.

Miles Watson 25 days ago
@Clara Wolfenstein ye I’d reccomend playing the game again on hardcore (should be able to fully upgrade magnum and grenade launcher), then next run on standard where you do knife only, use less than 4 meds, complete gane in under 3 hours and spend under 10,000 lei and finally on village of shadows and there you should have infinite ammo for magnum and grenade launcher
Clara Wolfenstein
Clara Wolfenstein 25 days ago
@Miles Watson Nice. Yeah I found Standard difficulty to be a cake walk. Haven't tried the next to difficulties just yet. Trying to get the infinite ammo for some more of my guns such as my grande launcher & magnum
Miles Watson
Miles Watson 25 days ago
@Clara Wolfenstein ye all story ones are very easy. Even the knife run was so much easier than I thought and did the game under 3 hours on that same run, without meds too. Village of shadows is very easy too just fully upgrade your magnum and get infinite ammo and VOS is a walk in the park

“What you buyin, something an old friend used to say”😂 Think about the plat before doing it. I’ve got all trophies apart from mercaneries one. Mercaneries trophy is a big platinum blocker and for the 4 2nd areas it’s boring and extremely hard, not like previous merchandise such as RE4.
Hartez2 26 days ago
Definitely game of the year for me. Very similar to RE7 in terms of gameplay mechanics and has a flavor of RE4 added to it. If you enjoyed playing either of those, get this game.

RE2 Remake is the ABSOLUTE best!!! That's the formula we need back in RE. Village looks great, and I def enjoyed the demo but everything they did to improve RE2 is THE game for me... If they remade them all to be more like that... and make the new ones to be more like that instead. I want all the originals from 1-6 done like that. RE3 ain't really it either, but it's not bad.

***Spoiler Alert*** I disagree when you said that this game does not connect to the overall universe very well. If you go through and read all the notes and books in Miranda's lab, then you would see that this story ties to the origins of Umbrella. It had some pretty shocking revelations of how the mold is in direct connection to the T-virus. The founder of Umbrella spent 5 years in this village studying the mold under Miranda.
