When it was announced that Resident Evil Village was a direct sequel to the excellent Resident Evil 7, I was definitely excited. The 2017 release was an absolute master of tension, one that set itself apart not only from the entire Resident Evil series, but from horror games in general. Resident Evil Village may be a sequel in name, but these opening hours do little to capture that tension again. It’s not say that they are bad, but they certainly aren’t what I was expecting from a direct sequel. Be warned, there are spoilers ahead in this video.
I’m trying something a little different for the next month or so. Work, life, and study is getting in the way of my consistent output when it comes to videos. So after chatting with Blue, we decided to start a new series called Let’s Discuss. It’s a live stream where Blue and I talk mostly about game design and pick apart things as they happen on screen. Of course, there are some moments where we interact with the Twitch chat, but for the most part we are very present on providing a middle ground of live shenanigans, and thoughtful discussion. Join us live next time on our Twitch page.
