Resident Evil Resistance New Masterminds and Maps Announced

Today Capcom announced two additional Masterminds joining the roster for Resident Evil Resistance, the upcoming 4 versus 1 asymmetrical survival horror experience included with Resident Evil 3. Infamous Resident Evil villains, Alex Wesker and Ozwell Spencer, each bring a unique brand of terror to the game and a set of special abilities to thwart the Survivors trying to escape Umbrella Corporation’s devious experiments. This duo rounds out Umbrella’s team of Masterminds in Resident Evil Resistance, alongside the previously announced newcomer Daniel Fabron and the notorious Annette Birkin.

Fans who recognize Alex Wesker from Resident Evil Revelations 2 might remember she employs a more indirect means to achieve her goals. As a villain who enjoys putting her subjects through psychological horrors and experiments, she makes the perfect Mastermind. Alex’s play style puts an emphasis on using traps, while also manipulating the map to slow Survivors down with roadblocks and enhanced zombies. As if these were not intimidating enough, when Alex gets really serious, she can call upon a vicious carnivorous plant called Yateveo. This stationary bioweapon might not move, but in the right place it’s a powerful obstruction that keeps Survivors from their objective of escaping.

Ozwell E. Spencer has been a shadowy antagonist in the Resident Evil series, letting others do his dirty work. As the fourth Mastermind of Resident Evil Resistance, Ozwell is now taking a more hands-on approach. Enjoying his position as one of Umbrella Corporation’s founders, Ozwell uses the company’s cutting edge technology to torment Survivors. Unlike other Masterminds who summon controllable bioweapons (like Alex Wesker’s Yateveo, Annette Birkin’s G-Birkin and Daniel Fabron’s Tyrant), Ozwell instead generates a Disintegration Field that severely damages any Survivor who haplessly passes through it.

In addition to revealing new Masterminds, Capcom also shared new artwork showcasing two new maps where Masterminds and Survivors will try to outwit each other:

  • Casino: An entertainment facility for thrill seekers… and insidious Masterminds. Its still-operating slot machines and chips strewn across the floor tell the eerie tale of how hastily it was deserted during the collapse of Raccoon City.
  • Abandoned Park: A horror-themed park located on the outskirts of Raccoon City. It too was left abandoned when zombies and bioweapons overran Raccoon City. Now, monsters both real and imagined now patiently await visitors.

In Resident Evil Resistanceone Mastermind plots a deadly course by wielding a strategic deck of cards to create dangerous obstacles to prevent a group of Survivors from escaping – such as summoning vicious creatures, setting traps, manipulating the environment, and weaponizing security cameras. In turn, Survivors must work together using their own special abilities and items they come across to thwart the Mastermind, and escape the experiment before time runs out.
Resident Evil Resistance will be included with Resident Evil 3 on April 3, 2020 for PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, the Xbox One family of devices including Xbox One X, and Steam. Visit https://www.residentevil.com/3 for more information.

This, of course, is copied directly from their press release to me as I didn’t want to mistake any of the info, and I will put some of my favorite pics at the bottom. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dawn of Fear trailer

Savior told me of a game to check out as he frequently does ( now available on PSN) and I have to admit, the look and old school controls is seriously reminiscent of classic Resident Evil and Silent Hill. While it looks like your enemies are typical zombies, the atmosphere looks like a brighter Spencer mansion from the first Resident Evil game. If you want a classic horror throwback, this doesn’t seem like a bad game. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

FF7 remake theme trailer

I haven’t followed much of what’s been going on with the FF7 remake, except for the delays, but I must admit the graphics are stunning. The world looks brilliantly re-imagined and the characters look great. While I’m not fimilair with the classic game, the plot sounds solid and I’d definitely give it a shot. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Brice Armstrong, Voice of Ginyu and DBZ Narrator passes at the age 84

It is with a sad heart we report the death of anime legend Brice Armstrong, the voice of Captain Ginyu and the narrator of  Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball z. He died of natural causes at the age of 84 and we wish his family the best and may the gaming gods bring him peace.
