@vinny: Hey Vinny, where did you hear that the game runs worse on a regular PS4? I have not run into a single framerate hiccup. Maybe it's when you're playing in VR?

This faninterpretation of Bequest looks really great.

In all honesty, this looks amazing. Would love to get this on PC but people report bugs so I'm waiting for now. I'm so glad that P.T. alone inspired so much for horror games to create this feeling of dread. I'm impressed that this game pulled it off so well, at least from what I'm seeing. It even does the subtle camera lense thing where the world seems to "bend" around you. If you don't know what I'm talking about, you can see it during the 06:05 mark when Dan goes through the doors and you see the frames of the doors on the side bending a little bit. These tiny, tiny details alone are amazing!

Just from the looks of it this does seem to be a must have for a varity of reason, this could possible stand on its own feet even without the RE label attached to it (not that this is a bad thing, I like RE also, though I have not played 5, 6 and this one obviously).

This looks like the lovechild of Resident Evil 1, P.T. and the last episode of True Detective Season 1. I...kinda dig it?

Man, I could not play this game. The idea of effectively invincible enemies stalking you around the map scares the crap out of me.

The stalking unkillable enemies only appear in a few fairly short sections and most of those are pretty early in the game. Dan seemed to have really bad lucky in this QL with Jack, it's usually way easier to avoid him.

I think it's great that they're taking Resident Evil in a new direction whilst at the same time staying relatively true to the series roots. Parts of this remind me quite a bit of Condemned.

Dan: "...I just want to put that statue in the in the placer."

The Game: "Yeah, Dan, daddy don't care what you wanna do during the quick-look...at all."

I can see it is more like classic RE, but I think they swung so far back that they skipped over 20 years of game innovation. I personally didn't like that RE6 was a shitty shooter, with bad game play, and an asinine melodramatic story. What I was not missing were stupid statue puzzles or opening doors using three elf stones.

That's it - I'm done. I do not need to see another RE game from Capcom ever again.

Yeees. I'm going to buy this anyway because well-received AAA VR horror game, but the QL was the last thing I was waiting on to completely sell me on it.

EDIT: Aaaaaand SUPER sold. I was worried because, as cool as the demo was, I didn't find it scary. I'm pretty positive that Jack bursting through the wall like he does here would send me reeling in VR, though. That is a "dog through window" level RE scare right there. And that damage modeling... as Rorie would say, "good lord". You don't really get a sense of how good it is when fighting the Molded in the demo.

That seals it. I'm buying the hell out of this tomorrow.

Played a bit of this in VR last night. It's so intense I really was done after an hour or so. I'd planned on playing for 3.

Excited to get back in the headset tonight, but I may have to take it all in one hour bursts if it stays as intense as the opening hour.

This is the one genre where how games have advanced makes me sad. I loved the old survival horror RE games 1,2 & 3... but with how good graphics and the general arrangement of games with music etc. I can't be handling this kinda thing anymore!
I have a similar stress/anxiety situation as Alex has and I find it admirable that he's even going to fucking attempt this thing. I tried to play the demo and as soon as I walked into an attic filled with mannequins, heard a noise, turned round and saw one of the mannequins had moved, that was me done IMMEDIATELY!

just internet scuttlebutt, nothing verified that I saw. Might be folks were talking about running better meaning "looks better" though.

I definitely need to up my brightness because my game was significantly darker than this, to the point where it was hard to tell where I was, but I figured that was the point. Also, this game could really do with the look behind while sprinting mechanic that something like Outlast has, if only to make it a bit more fair when being chased.

This looks neat. I always have liked the locational damage in RE games and it's good to see that this continues that trend, now even with somewhat accurate cuts and blood splatterings. It's a bit sad that whenever i see a chainsaw in games i'm expecting it to not be a weapon that cuts stuff open, just a heavy damage melee thing. Kinda wish that RE creates some truly unique monsters though. These melty guys don't stray too far from the plantzombies in RE5 .

The "Groovy!" line when you pick up the chainsaw is a liiiiiittttle much.

Goofy stuff like that seems to kinda work against the whole tension, jump scare, horror thing to me. Wonder how many silly references to movies or jokey fanservice callbacks to the older games are in this, and if it affects the atmosphere negatively overall.

I managed to play through Dead Space, just because I heard how great it was (glad I did), but this...will never play. Just can't do it, too scary :(

@johnseminario: it's funny, I had the opposite reaction. I usually leave games at the default brightness but for this game I took their "not visible, barley visible" thing to heart. The game is dark but it's supposed to be. The game looked too bright in the quicklook, it just kinda looks washed out at times.

I'm happy that they pulled this off. After RE5 and 6, I figured AAA survival horror was done and that The Last Of Us would be the closest we'd ever come to it again.

But they took a risk and made something awesome. Tim Turi's Resident Evil is a success!

@pompouspizza: Same thing I did with the recommended visibility things. I watched a little bit of a stream last night, though, where the brightness looked like it does here. Figured I was doing something wrong, but maybe people are turning it up to make it a bit easier than it's supposed to be to navigate.

Been patiently waiting for this one.

Yep this game looks awesome. I'm rubbish with horror games and jump scares. This QL alone made my heart jump up into my throat a couple of times.

At the same time, I enjoyed and somehow finished Condemned and played a lot of Outlast, so I can do it.

I have to echo others in saying that the unkillable scary something or other stalking you for any significant portion of a game and ultimately preventing you from moving forward, is a really frustrating and unenjoyable idea. That goes for any game, really.

I was never a big follower of the Resident Evil series, but I'm glad its is getting a nice comeback. I like that there's a strong theme that's tied to the title. You're trying to survive in an evil residence. Is Jack Baker confirmed for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite?

@johnseminario: That would be my guess. It definitely looks right to me when you set the brightness like it tells you in the beginning. It struck me immediately in the quicklook how bright it was.

I was showing my fiancée some of this game on YouTube earlier, and in the opening section that takes place when the sun is setting, it just looked like the middle of the day.

I get scared so easily. This QL terrified me. I could never play this myself, but I would love/hate to watch a play through by any of the GB crew.

Is anyone else experiencing a ton of frame issues with the video, as well as loading issues? I'm on a beefy PC with a really strong internet connection, and it's constantly stuttering and loading for a second here or there.

This actually looks pretty good? Like it expands on the atmosphere of the originals with updated modern mechanics.

The whole guy chasing you forever and the jam on the screen at all times looks a bit annoying though

Watching this game is scary enough, there is no way I could handle playing this game and VR would melt my brain.
