The VIllage People: Talking About Resident Evil 8

Some new stuff talked about RE: RE8 today. They teased a possible PS4/Xbone release? They talked about how they want to let the player figure out stuff and not be super prescriptive with solutions to different situations, which, like, I don't expect an immersive sim from RE, but if it tilts ever-so-slightly in that direction as it pertains to traversal and puzzle solutions? I'm super in.

They also mentioned "beautiful and terrifying" several times, and maybe I'm too much of a horror snob, but aside from REAL PURDY GRAPHICS, I'm not especially struck by the "beauty" of what I've seen so far. Not to say it looks bad or anything, but that kind of talk calls to mind Argento and Del Toro, and I'm not seeing that here. Anyways, what does everyone think?

re: beautiful: i guess maybe the castle is going to look really nice on the inside? like the interior shots where we see the fancy mosquito ladies seems pretty ornate.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I think I may see what they're going for in some of the images in the reveal trailer back in June:






























I was glad RE7 brought back puzzles, but the variety was somewhat lacking—like, that puzzle where you rotate an object to make its shadow match a certain design is in the game four different times, with different shapes. So I'll be fine as long as they've worked on that (and the RE2 remake has delivered since then, so I'm not too worried).

Village will probably sell me a next-gen console quicker than anything, just don't like playing these kinds of things on PC. That said, I admit that the "spooky fairy tale" bit they did in the PS5 event trailer felt the bad kind of hokey rather than the fun RE kind of hokey, hopefully not too many scenes of that in the final game.

visually it looked nice, but yeah i'm not sure if it was necessarily something i want from a resident evil game

Capcom sorta committed to a current gen version of the game so you might not need even that

all the time and money they save on not giving ethan a personality can be channeled into other areas of the game

REVOLUTION GRRR STYLE NOW

some of the imagery reminds me of Howling V: The Rebirth but with, like, a big budget
