Scorn Xbox cinematic trailer

I’ve been in love with this game since first seeing the trailer years ago but whoa is me, this game won’t be on PlayStation. No joke, I might get an X Box just because of this game. H.R. Giger is one of my all time heroes and this game looks like the ultimate love letter to his terrifying masterpieces. For now, I’m glad to admire it from afar. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

I’ll be the first to admit, I haven’t been following the controversy surrounding the leaks and the stuff surrounding this game. But I will say I’m curious if this will be as tension filled as the first. I’m a lil disappointed we haven’t seen more of the Clickers or the infected, but it seems the people are more prevalent.  If it doesn’t delay, I hope to play it and see for myself. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Destroy All Humans remake release date trailer

I wasn’t sure what to expect after Resident Evil 3 (2020) and Savior’s Final Fantasy 7 Remake Review but the Destroy all humans remake is looking like a blast while sticking faithfully close to the classic. I can’t wait to see what becomes of this. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

5 lesser known Resident Evil creatures

re umbrella logo

What do you think of when you think of the Resident Evil series? Zombies (be it man or dog)? The skinned, drooling Licker? The behemoth Tyrant variants whether it be the classic, Mr X, or the cuddly rocket launcher carrying Nemesis? Today I want to talk about some lesser known or underappreciated monsters in the franchise whether they be bosses or standard enemies. In no particular order let’s begin with…

re ustanak 1. Usternak ( Resident Evil 6 )-

Like many, I trashed the hell out of this game and while a Winter Soldier take on the Nemesis archetype, this brute was pretty cool as he hunted Jake and Sherry relentlessly with his various combat mods for his metal arm. Honestly, he was the best part of a bad game but deserves some respect.

re chimera 2. Chimera ( Resident Evil (remake) and Resident Evil 5 )-  Crossing man and animal has been a long thought of ideal, but Resident evil made these gross, grasshopper like bastards freaky and extremely dangerous.

re 0 lurker 3. Lurker ( Resident Evil 0)-

Of all the animals to dread on this Earth, who would really think a frog? Well what if this frog could brutally swallow you whole, slowly digesting you alive? I can’t say why but for the love of god that idea freaks me out but c’mon, how dangerous can frogs be?

re revenant  Revenant ( Resident Evil Revelations 2 ) – I loved fighting these things for 2 huge reasons. One, these things are the definition of “oh hell no” and they live up to that reputation. What I like is the tactical approach you need to take to kill them. These things were a healthy source of dread.

re scagdead

5. Scagdead aka The Comms Officer ( Resident Evil: Revelations )-

We end this list with a boss, a notorious one at that. Slimy, slow, pathetic as it is partially conscious during the battle, crying out for help as it lumbers after you. Scagdead isn’t the fastest beast but the traps he lays surely slow you down so he can give you a big ol hug with his giant saw arm.

I hope everyone enjoyed the list I came up with and it makes some of you want to check the games out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Resident Evil 3 (2020)

re 3 2020

This game was my most anticipated game of the year and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (classic) scared the shit out of me and millions of fans and arguably giving us one of gaming’s most haunting and horrific figures: The Nemesis. The first 2 Resident Evil remakes were incredible improvements over the classics, so what of the 3rd game?

Jill Valentine is traumatized after her experiences in the Spencer mansion. As the T virus outbreak is in it’s early stages, Jill is getting ready to escape Raccoon City. An assailant is after Jill, relentless and towering. Jill is on the run while trying to save as many survivors out as possible. She meets up with a rescue team fronted by Umbrella after being saved by Carlos Olivera as the dreaded Nemesis is on there tail. Can Jill and the rescue team escape or will they fall to the unstoppable Nemesis?

A lot of negative things has been said about this game since release and I’m sorry to say a big part of the claims are true. This game is really, really short. Getting lost twice and backtracking the entire hospital for loot, the game took about 6 hours. Unlike RE 1 and 2, there is one campaign only but you do change perspectives between Jill and Carlos with Jill being the main protagonist. There aren’t any bonus campaigns and just one ending; notoriously the Mercenaries mode was taken out in exchange for Resident Evil: Resistance, which is a completely separate game. Also, while the characters are more flushed than the original and the voice acting, character models, and environments, everything feels sped up and rushed. While the action scenes are a huge improvement from Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6 , much of the Nemesis encounters feel on rails and I’m sad to say he lost quite a lot of his luster and unpredictable nature. Each time you down him, he does drop loot cases and his attacks are fairly easy to predict and when you have to face him, his weaknesses are pretty damn huge. Despite the huge negatives, the gameplay is really fun and the new action focus works well off of the RE2 mechanics. The score is great and visually the game looks beautiful.  The characters and creatures look fantastic and all of Nemesis’s forms are terrifying in there own way and surpass the looks of the original. In the end, this Resident Evil remake is a fun time but far from perfection;  if this game had another year I have no doubt it would surely measure up to the other remakes. The game is worth playing but not at full price. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
