“Resident Evil 7” Gameplay Trailer

Hi guys, it’s me again. About a month ago I posted about a bunch of trailers that came out of E3 this year. First off, huge thank you to anyone who liked and commented on those posts, I really appreciate the support. Anyway, enough with the mushy stuff, back to the point. Now, one of the trailers I posted was the announcement trailer for “Resident Evil 7”. And in that post I said that the trailer didn’t really look like “Resident Evil”… so does this gameplay trailer fix that? Let’s check it out.

So in this we seem to follow a young woman from the first person perspective. And she leaves some kind of recorded message (or phone call) to someone named Ethan. And then we see her trying to sneak through some dark, abandoned place, trying to survive the psychotic, possibly possessed woman prowling the area. Okay, let’s talk about the positives of this thing first (because people like happy stuff). This looks genuinely scary, something that “Resident Evil” hasn’t really been since a few parts of “Resident Evil 4″… which came out in 2005. So that is cool. Also, the graphics look absolutely stunning and the sound design sounds pretty good despite only being a short preview of the game. Okay, now for the negatives, *sigh*… this does not look like “Resident Evil”. It’s the same problem as that initial announcement trailer from E3. I get that Crapcom wants to go in a new direction, but come on… give us something that makes it feel like it’s actually tied to the “Resi” franchise. I’m not asking for those huge, ridiculous action bits from “Resident Evil 6”, but at least something that ties it in to the actual franchise other than the name. Yes, this looks interesting and I would want to play it… even though it’s not “Resident Evil”.

So what do you guys think? Are you excited for this new “Resident Evil” game? And do you think that Crapcom are moving in the right direction with the series? Leave any and all answers in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer.

“Resident Evil 7” E3 trailer

Hello guys, here I am again with my covering of E3 stuff that interest me. So… let’s ee what we have here!

After four years we have finally gotten an announcement trailer for “Resident Evil 7”. And from the looks of it, this game might actually be scary. You know, compared to the last few games and those shitty Hollywood movies and I’m gonna move on. I am a fan of this franchise, having played most of them (At least main series, never got into spin-offs really) and enjoyed them in some way. Sure, numbers 5 and 6 weren’t that great, but I still kind of enjoyed them. My personal favorite though has always been “Resident Evil 4”, it’s a perfect balance of┬áboth action, creepiness, tension and reinvigoration. And like I said, the last few weren’t that great, but I still always look forward to a new game to see what they’ll do with it. And with this one it seems like it will go back more to the survival horror style of the original game and it’s Gamecube remake. Sure, the trailer doesn’t really tell us anything about the game itself other than “look forward to some creeps, people”. Here’s the interesting thing though: If I didn’t already know that this was the “Resident Evil 7” trailer, I would’ve almost mistaken it for a new “Silent Hill” or possibly “The Evil Within 2” (The latter of which I really wanted to see at this year’s E3). But yeah, this looks really interesting and I’m looking forward to seeing more of it.

So what are your thoughts? Are you looking forward to this new “Resi” installment? Are you fans of any of the previous games? Leave any and all thoughts in the comments.
Have a good one and enjoy the trailer!
