Thread split, haven't talked about REV for about the last 20 posts.

We should probably just have a general RE thread at this point with how much cross discussion about other games in the series occurs.

Yeah, a shovelware RE containment thread. We could also split that one off into a new forum, and then make a new real general Resident Evil thread for the prestigious classics before RE4 and leave that one here.

How about this. Duke was supposed to be 5th lord created by mother Miranda who become even stronger than her and rebelled against her. Only that storyline was dropped. No one knows what his true form was.

our equivalent to Gamestop allows console game returns within the first 7 days

Wow, that's retarded on their part. It's like they hate money or something. Why would you ever keep/buy a popamole console game with this system?

The worst thing in this game, IMO, is the inventory:

- It has too much space, even without upgrade.

- You get inventory upgrade too early through the Duke's store, instead of exploration. Too easy to get with a few treasures and some spare changes from dead enemies.

- Crafting items don't take up space. In RE2R I often find myself passing up gunpowder or herb, memorize their position, then come back for them later when I need them. Never had to do that in Village. You constantly have a stream of resources readily available and that just lowers any kind of tension and decision making in this game

This is truly disgusting. Inventory management is a core mechanic in RE games, and if you fuck this aspect up you've basically ruined the game.

Fuck this decline! Bring on Revelations 3!

While I don't think the game is outright bad, it's not particularly excellent either. Which is why I'm so surprised by how common of an opinion it appears to be that this is genuinely one of the best RE games ever made.
I am actually baffled by this, in the truest sense of the word. I just don't see what this game offers that would lead anyone to come to that conclusion.

as usual, codex is the only place where i've seen some genuine criticism towards this game, everywhere else people are acting like Daedalos in heat.

One of my normie friends told me he thought RE7 was a much better game which sort of surprised me.

He's very much part of the action camp, so I was expecting him to prefer RE8.

So, what will RE9 be called?

RESIDENT EVIL: CRUCIFIXION

RESIDENT EVIL: DOMINATRIX
It would be interesting.
Now that I think about the poor policemen died at the beginning of Re4 killed by people with pitchfork. So Re8 Village should feature armies of Village People dressed as policemen.

Nobody has ever said this.

I don't even go to other gaming sites anymore, so I have no idea what the consensus elsewhere is. I did watch one YouTube video, which was kind of mixed in praise and criticism. I might play this later, but I have no strong desire to.

I don't think it's as clear cut as people are suggesting. It seems to be quite a controversial game if you go by reviews and videos.

Most of the Steam positive reviews aren't pure praise either. Places like the RE subreddit are full of mixed praise as well.

I get the impression people are rating this as a sort of 7 or 8 out of 10 game overall.

Edit: Wunderbar, talk to some normies about the game. Read some Steam or metacritic user reviews. They aren't all as positive as is being made out here.

Shallow video made by a guy who has barely any knowledge about videogames. I may as well just read a steam review.
