TLDR is that sales were not as good as RE 5 and 6. Their stocks went down. This means Capcom might revert to their BIG EXPLOSIONS AND FAST ACTION crap.

Oh God in heaven please don't let Capcom go back to their bad formula.

Well survival horror always was a bit of a niche genre. That's why they switched to action horror in the first place. Maybe they should go back to the plan.
Numbed games are in a more modern action style, for a broader audience. While the Revealations series caters to the more oldschool fanbase..

I've not been here in ages, because the link was broken. I guess you just relocated the forums.

Anyway, RE7 for me was a very good game, but I still yearn for a game like the remake, so hopefully the RE2 remake will be like this. I'm still baffled by the 'Not A Hero' stuff, because we can all agree that guy does not really look like Chris, but maybe it is. Ah! All will be revealed rather soon, eh? tongue

I haven't been here in ages because I've been doing things. Anyway, we didn't relocate anything. Down didn't pay for the custom url and it reverted back to the service provider's url.

Anyway, this news means absolutely nothing and all the panicking about action and whatever is just conjecture by fans who are too lazy to actually step back and think about it. The article only talks about shipped units, which does NOT take into account digital releases. Gaming industry has moved more and more towards digital releases and sales on platforms like Steam and PSN are higher than ever. I could go as far and say that most of RE7's sales come from digital market places, since those offered the Deluxe Edition that included all the DLC.

tl;dr the numbers don't mean anything

Why did they postpone the 'Not A Hero' DLC? Now I'm calling it the 'Not A Happy Camper' DLC instead.

They say that they're polishing it. Which is fine by me. RE7 was pretty high quality, and i'd like it to stay that way.

Yeah. Those people who say RE7 isn't a true sequel forget that it's not 1998 anymore. Things change. To say it's something different would be better. Totally dismissing it is dumb. I'm generally sympathetic when it comes to why they dislike the ones post RE4. But you know? We do miss the old ones. I've gone and made another video. The stress I put up with gets to me, so these videos relieve my angst somewhat.

I can be patient if it means quality. Still i'm really curious to see if all this "Blue Umbrella" talk is legit, cause it sounds pretty interesting. So i hope they don't take too long.

You put too many zeroes in there. A report dated November 6th puts the number at 4 million.

https://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/309056/Sales_up_at_Capcom_thanks_to_stalwart_Monster_Hunter_franchise.php

And that's really not good when looking at the games that preceded it. RE5 moved 4 million units in just its first week, while RE6 did 4.5 million in its first week.

Again, not really. It took RE7 almost a year to do what RE5 and RE6 did in just a week.

Well, I did enjoy 7: Biohazard, but The Evil Within games are way cooler. To be honest, I guess you could argue that 7: Biohazard is a stand alone game, but it still fits in nicely. Now The Evil Within is certainly a brilliant series. They're actually two scary games, and I suppose one could compare them to you know what, as they are like a cross between other notable, classic survival horror games. However, all the modern horror games are basically a lot like RE4 in terms of the camera, the mechanics, the boss fights and whatnot, or maybe the first person types are like Outlast. So I don't mind that, even if you do frown upon the seemingly obvious rip-off parts. At least they still can do great horror games, even if people bicker on forums about preferring the older ones such as RE2 (heck, we are getting a remake of that at least and that style is outdated).

I'd been feeling rather sad for years, thinking the genre was gonna be dead. It certainly was slipping for a number of years, although all of 2017 has been a redemption.

I didn't like The Evil Within. The plot made things feel as though nothing happened, and it used that terrible cliché of "everything was in your head" for the ending (and what a clusterfuck THAT was). Not to mention the obvious RE4-esque gameplay...

I agree that the story makes almost zero sense. I actually played part 2 before part 1 and I couldn't even fight the final boss evenly as I just had handgun bullets left. Not happening!

I was like, what the hell is STEM supposed to be? Is it a big computer? Why did his partner betray him? Who masterminded all this Silent Hill type stuff? Uh!

Anyway, many enemies are exact copies too of RE4-5-6. We've got the bloated chainsaw things, the zombies, a big wolf thing, and loads of other similarities between Resident Evil, Silent Hill, and also The Last of Us.

Also, Silent Hill: Origins is way too similar to The Evil Within 2. The mirrors. The burning house. Etc.

Just a sitrep but RE7 did meet Capcom's sales expectations for the first year. Just a generally good thing when looking into the series' future. https://gematsu.com/2017/11/resident-evil-7-biohazard-worldwide-sales-top-4-1-million

As for Evil Within I couldn't stand the first one. It was bland, boring, made little to no sense and was basically RE4 with a different plot. The only thing that gave me any actual interest in EW2 was that the PC version has a hidden first person mode. Prolly gonna buy it from a Steam sale when it goes to around 10 bucks.

So overall, 2017 has been a great year for horror games. I'm not quite sure why fans are upset at the DLC being bland. What does one want from DLC? Usually, DLC stuff is bargain bin quality. We got a very odd mix of it, though, from comedy stuff like Jack's 55th Birthday to Daughters, to End of Zoe and Not a Hero. Actually, End of Zoe is bizarre, as it is the first time we play a guy who uses his fists to kill most of the monsters. He ain't no Chris either, which makes an idea like that extremely strange. At least Capcom are trying new things. You can't say that about many other games out there, that recycle old junk a lot.

Watching someone play, all I could say was, that old dude was one badass motherfucker.

They had really low expectations.

Apart from the belated DLC for RE7 this chilly December, I was very impressed with The Evil Within 2. Sure, it's a massive Silent Hill clone if ever there was one, but who's really gonna complain? We were supposed to get that other Silent Hill rip-off (Forgotten Memories: Alternate Realities) and I doubt that is coming out on consoles now, sadly. Its Facebook page is practically dead. I suspect it is dead too, as they updated the official site and removed a lot of stuff.

However, I think The Evil Within 2 has great genre-crossing vibes to it, and although it is very much like the recent RE games, you also have to conserve your ammo and learn to evade or kill enemies in a more effective way. The DLC for the first game was also very good, as it was like Clock Tower in that you had to run and hide, as you didn't get to use a gun much.

The mechanics are a lot like the ones utilized throughout The Last of Us, with Silent Hill type enemies and Resident Evil 4 style item management, and weapons upgrading. It's certainly a top contender to replace Silent Hill, although it's a bit sad that a "replacement" has to happen if Konami are letting go of making any more sequels. But every cloud has a silver lining.
