This was outright hypnotic to watch. I figured that I'd bear with it for 2 minutes, get the jist and move on, but I ended up transfixed and saw it to the very end. Guy has such a soothing quality to his voice that really puts one at ease.
Resident Evil spin-offs have always erred on the side of being complete trash, with the exception of the Revelations games if they can even be considered spin-offs. They're more like smaller budget 'B-tier' mainline games really. In any case Umbrella Corp is without a doubt the most far removed from all RE games, to the point where they even removed the name Resident Evil from the game completely! So in a way I'm somewhat glad this game is (unsurprisingly) such a shitshow, because seriously wot. eSports Counter-Strike inspired slippery movement simulator getthefugouttaheerrrreeeee.
Revelations 2 is still the last 'proper' RE game in my eyes, and that was totally alright. It was good enough that it represents a level of optimism that I hadn't had towards the series for quite some time. And now we have RE7's 'pure' horror direction, and not to mention a full remake of RE2 in the works, and there's still very possibly a Revelations 3 (likely centreing on Rebecca Chambers) to be announced also. Resident Evil still has legs to stand on and Umbrella Corp frankly does little to detract from what I think could be a healthy future ahead for the series.
I saw a tweet that said they just submitted a patch for Sony testing...over 6 months after release. I have my doubts based on their rotten track record but if the PS4 version isn't patched by next week then it never will be.
Ha, pretty weird coincidence since I tweeted only yesterday about how ridiculous it is that it still hasn't been patched.
Out of curiosity I headed back into #NuclearThrone on PS4 to see if it its issues had been fixed yet. Turns out haha of course not.
