COGconnected: We go hands on with The Evil Within 2 at PAX West 2017. The Shinji Mikami directed sequel is shaping up to be far more twisted than its predecessor.
I wanna play the demo
Are they releasing a demo?? Definitely want to get a go of this.
Don't know but I hope so
I loved the first one, but since the reveal trailer which I couldn't help but see, I've gone media blackout on this game so I get the best experience with nothing spoiled
I really hope they will release the demo to the public at some point.
Please, for the love of god release the demo
First of all you must be 10 to find it scary, and 2nd of all....it isn't director-ed by Shinji Mikami.
First of all it's all relative to the player. Second of all the guy directing it was the one who directed the dlc which had the scariest moments in the game.
I cant wait to play this game... The 1st was an evolution in the horror genre on consoles. So much that resident evil followed in its wake
What did it do though? I played the first for a bit and saw nothing outside of the ordinary with games like these. I'm seriously interested as I remember a TON of people losing their shit over this game and I'm sitting here like what's the big deal?
If you only played it for a bit how can you judge the whole game? Rarely games of this genre get the blood pumping and feeling of desperation and looming impending death. Maybe these types of games arent for everybody but i like them.
@sk8ofmnd Nah, it's not that these types of games aren't for me...it's just I don't think this was the great example people think it is. And I've played an hour or so but watched more on some Let's Play videos and I see a game with a lot of great ideas but poor execution and pacing. Plus I had issues with the controls and sluggish/nonresponsive animations and what not. Was more a technical issue than the actual game at first. Also didn't see a lot of horror either for being "survival horror"...most of the monsters and zombies could have been replaced by not-monsters and not-zombies and it would still be mainly the same. Plus the characters and story was whack. The characters were either too not there to matter or too weird and odd to care about. Which is typical for a lot of Japanese games. I don't know...based on what I've played, seen, and read it's not a bad game...certainly not in it's sub-genre...but it's not the end-all be-all that people make it out to be.
I didn't think the first game was really all that either. Ended up selling my PS4, although now I wish I kept it. Hopefully the second game will actually live up to the first game's potential.
I don't like the sound of the unforgiving difficulty and lack of ammo part though
The gameplay i've seen and everyone has seen the same is it looks identical to how the first game opened up, just visual improvements. Personally, I don't find gore scary. It's gore. Thanks SAW movies for doing that. Resident Evil 7 and the original games by Mikami created a specific atmosphere that you get consumed in. Not jump scares and blood. Hopefully the gameplay and structure has improved. The first one was a major letdown for me.
Tried playing the first. Only made it like an hour because it felt...weird. The game played and felt like some slow Japanese third person exploration game (if this makes sense) but with guns and bad "horror". Yeah, I didn't really get the big deal with the first one. The game play alone had me stop playing after an hour and the content and story and characters/enemies did very little to make me care. Very weird how some games just don't do shit for some but are amazing to others...
Is it me or is the word 'terrifying' being used as much as 'like Dark Souls' these days ?
All the articles for this game have "horrifying" or "terrifying" in their title. The first one was far from scary in nearly any sense so what's with everyone thinking this one is going to be some horror masterpiece? I swear, the more I see for this game the more I think people don't really like the first as much as they say they do but can't act like it now since it's too late.
