Alright this game actually seems to be cool, specially if it's more like the first Resident Evil since it was the only RE I liked.

But I feel like the whole running away from Daddy might get boring pretty quickly, specially if he constantly shows up as often as he did on this Quick Look.

I also wonder if it's scarier if you're playing it because just watching it on a video didn't really did anything for me.

I'm barely into the game, waiting for a patch to come out for an issue, but do you lose your sprint at some point? Why is Dan just walking everywhere?

Edit: Actually looks like he is sprinting. I didn't realize it was so slow.

Well this looks pretty good. Definitely interesting.

Also, Imma let you finish, but RE5 is one of the best co-op games of all time!

I'm not an English native speaker, so can someone explain me this? Isn't phrase "hardly recommend" mean "I don't really recommend this"? Dans tone was positive, but he said that he doesn't recommend VR mode, I'm confused...

Dang...I'm still a big ol' baby when it comes to scares. This looks absolutely terrifying. Probably won't play it for a while, but I'm definitely looking forward to it.

I like that the healing is basically hand sanitizer..

Mind you I'm not into horror, at all, but him just stalking you the entire time seems annoying. Sure it creates tension, but it just feels like I'm forced to rush everything and not take my time.

This almost never happens to me, but not going to lie: I opened a new browsing tab shortly after going to GB then closed it once I was finished and got a little startled by the QL thumbnail.

It looks great and it has an RE feel. But that boss battle looked real bad.

Frame rate seemed to be running around 60 with some stutters here and there? Could just be the video. Anyway the game looks way more like resident evil than i thought it would, seems like a good time to be had with it. I don't think i could do it in VR though.

I can't really watch this, the only way I could get through this is perhaps streaming this to a 3-inch laptop playing at least 10 feet away using wireless gamepad with My Little Pony playing in the background, much less a VR headset where the reality is stacked high against you with limited controls and perhaps limited peripheral vision.

Maybe the FOV and the movement speed aren't so bad when you're not watching someone else play, but this game seems really unpleasant to play, but not in an interesting scary way, it just seems clumsy and bad.

@gregalor: You don't have to be a scientist to realize that that old man is a fusion between Wesker and the humanoid that got created by combining Chris and Leon's DNA together with the T-virus and G-virus. The fusion earrings between this humanoid and Wesker created 'Daddy' .

I've played up to about the end of this quick look.

I'm normally a huge baby when it comes to horror games, i could only play about half an hour of Amnesia, but a little bit before the part where Dan says "this is where it turns into Resident Evil" is kinda where the game stopped being "scary" for me.

It's definitely still creepy and tense but it turns into more of an adventure game at that point. Wandering around a spooky mansion and solving obtuse puzzles and trying not to die. Basically it turns into a first person Resident Evil 1, which is a good thing.

It was a little irritating how Vinny and Alex kept pressing Dan about certain plot related things. I gotta commend Dan for not giving anything away. The first hour or so is bonkers and surprising.

Also, avoiding that dude isn't as hard as it looks, Dan was just rushing and not paying close attention which is understandable.

Compelled to comment because of Vinny's grating picking at the seams of this game because if it had a cellphone it'd all fall apart. Just not interesting conversation, and you know the answer already.

This looks repetitive, pedantic, clunky, and clichéd with undeserved jump-scares, and another slide down the slippery slope that is the Resident Evil franchise of late, but, going by the comments here, I guess it's just me!

So does Ethan have some kind of leg injury or is he just in so bad shape the highest speed he can manage is a quick hobble?

I mean in the opening hour he literally gets his leg cut off and reattached in the span of a minute and a half

As someone that can't afford to buy a PS4 Pro it sucks to hear that it might run great on a pro and not the base PS4. I only have a base PS4.

Resident Evil is one of my all-time favorite gaming franchises but hearing how much better it is with VR and playing it on the Pro almost makes me not wanting to play it at all right now. Why should I play an inferior version of the game?

Super happy the QL is here. I really didn't fancy playing this game, because I think it's just a little too horror for me, but I ended up watching about 3-4 hours of my friend playing in VR and then another couple of hours of another friend playing it from the start and really enjoyed it. Both of them started on Madhouse then ended up restarting. It was less the difficulty and more the combination of restricted saves and lack of checkpointing: one of my friends lost about an hour of progress from one tiny mistake.

The thing that really caught me off-guard is how many crazy little optional moments you can see or miss, and that encounters can go different ways. It seems more dynamic than I was expecting. I'm also into how much of an original RE throwback the setting is.

This game looks good. Visually, too. I don't think anything in RE4 grossed me out, but now they can portray slime and rot in a realistic environment almost too well. I've never been to the US, but rendering flaky paint and wood well with this nice lighting makes it feel very familiar anyway. That's what makes it extra scary and gross when bad shit happens.
