    Couldnít find a thread anywhere, so here we go - The latest trailer is here and yeah, this looks really good.

    I massively enjoyed Resi 7 and this looks like itís taking the same formula but complete changing the aesthetic....it really does look amazing.

    Pre-order is in, really looking forward to this!

    Looks essentially like a first person version of Resi 4 which is no bad thing.

    Immediately after the trailer, YT segued into a advert for a documentary about Jimmy Saville.
    I thought Capcom were really pulling out the stops with the lore.

    Itís looks like a place Iíd love to hate exploring as it were. I just hope it doesnít overdo the combat stuff as thatís where the last one lost its bite. Loving the witches kind of vibe, as long as they donít end up like a kind of cheap teleporting nemesis.

    Thereís a lot of potential here though and Iím hyped for it. Roll on that demo.

    I did look at the leaks a while back as the lore jumped the shark so long ago it's one of the few instances spoiling myself isn't going to ruin a game. Looks and sounds absolutely batshit. Hopefully it's more like RE VII and less like the crap DLC that came out after.

    Think the demo's just a visual one, but my PS5 is crying out for it already.

    Yeah time to give the ps5 a workout though, good yardstick on where devs are and what to expect this year.

    That felt like more of the same to me in a more gothic setting rather than closer to RE4. They reaaaallllllly like the stalker mechanic don't they?

    Will definitely grab it at some point but not sure I'm gonna go full price, day 1 this time as I could never be arsed returning to RE7 after one playthrough.

    Yeah lovely lighting/rt? showcase but some of the texture details were lacking in places up close. Minor stuff but the only blemishes. Couldnít really gauge the fps as itís a little heavy to control at places so maybe not steady just yet. Impressive but hopefully can be pushed even further.

    I thought 7 was amazing and will be grabbing this day one unless they royally fuck it up. I find them much more immersive in first person.

    I donít think they will fuck it up, 7 was great but the last 10% or so was a real drop off for me. I didnít go back for the Chris dlc as it sounded like more of the weakest parts. I may well dig it all back out though (never did the season pass dlc which sounded more varied).

    The first 2 hours or so of 7 are amazing

    Might have to give 7 a play through again. My memory is really shit when it comes to previous games. Returning hero Ethan Winters... I was like who lol. But do remember generally enjoying it l.

    Can remember the general set up with the house in the Deep South, the rednecks and the bees but thatís about it. Guess I could watch a recap.

    Just played the demo. There's no way I'm not getting this.

    fwiw I do agree that 7's closing section was weaker than what had gone before but I still really liked it, and chris' dlc. Only bit of dlc I wasn't super keen on was End of Zoe, don't think I finished that actually.

    But yeah, looking forward to this.

    VII's closing section was the best part. ;-)

    Ha! Opinions, eh? I'd say the torture porn departure was the weakest part of VII for me, personally. I actually quite liked the ship/ending, but the opening act was just fucking incredible. Absolutely loved it.

    Is the demo just for PS5, incidentally?

    Just tried the demo and the tone is wonderful....creepy as fuck but youíre desperate to see more of the environment, so so good!

    Also just remembered I never played the DLC for Resi 7.....so thatís my evening sorted!

    Is the DLC for seven supposed to be good, tempted to pick it up on sale now.

    There's a puzzle type one where you're locked in a room that was pretty cool.

    The Chris one (Not a Hero I think?) was basically an extended version of all the worst bits after the farmhouse. Pretty much pure, low quality action all the way through.

    Don't forget 'End of Zoe'

    Ah, I didn't play that one. Might check it out if it's cheap.

    Just realised all the DLC is on offer too, is it worth buying Vol.1 and Vol.2 or is one of them better than the other?

    Each volume has good and bad bits. There's some action, wave based nonsense in there but some good story stuff too.

    New demo available to preloaded tonight/tomorrow for ps users.

    Some convoluted BS over availability to play. Something like an 8 hrs window each weekend and 1 hrs total to explore village and/or the castle areas.

    Seems like a lot of faff that I'll probably end up missing, but I do like that they're embracing demos. Feels like ages since a game has had this kind of confidence.

    I bet they fuck it all up with a launch day review embargo or something silly like that.

    RE4 VR exclusive to Oculus Quest.

    VR exclusives are such a pain. I can justify buying multiple consoles, but thereís no way I can buy multiple headsets.
