Can't wait .

This and the last of us are my most anticipated games in 2013.

Hai.

From the Father of Survival Horror and Modern Third Person Shooters

... one can only expect greatness and awesomeness.

Shinji Mikami is a true master.

The first Resident Evil is technically a survival horror/ third person shooter game.

Kyosuke_Sanada4123d ago

I wouldn't say the father of survival horror per se because Alone In the Dark came out way before hand and Mikami just refined his elements to make it playable. Not saying he doesn't deserve praise for what he's done just a little food for thought......

miyamoto4123d ago (Edited 4123d ago )

I said "Father of Survival Horror and Modern Third Person Shooters" because he coined the term "Survival Horror" and practically gave it definition and his standards that we know today. I can also call him Father of Zombie Survival Horror games to be more specific but it doesnt deduct to the fact that he started this subgenre

"The term "survival horror" was first used for the original Japanese release of Resident Evil in 1996, which was influenced by earlier games with a horror theme such as 1989's Sweet Home. The name has been used since then for games with similar gameplay, and has been retroactively applied to games as old as Haunted House from 1982."

Without his conventions who knows if the term or Survival Horror sub genre would even exist as we know it today.

Alone in the Dark, for all intents and purposes, wasn't known or made as survival horror to begin with. It was just made as an action adventure game. Alone in the Dark (1992) is considered a forefather of the survival horror genre, and is sometimes called a survival horror game in retrospect.

I hope this game is a return of golden days for Survival horror for next gen.

hot4play4124d ago

Agree.

I've been a huge RE fan since the 1996, but with the way things are going for the series, sad to say-- the Resident Evil series is (un)dead to me.

Hopefully Mikami's Project Zwei (along with The Last Of Us) can reinvigorate the Survival horror genre!

on_line_forever4124d ago

HarryMasonHerpderp4124d ago

Very excited for this.
Horror needs to make a comeback!
I've gone through an entire gen with a complete drought of the genre and it's killing me.

This shouldn't have happened.

Who's next..

tay87016d ago

Ninja theory. Others will follow as well. The smaller studios MS owns should all be worried. Maybe MS will try and release some of their games day and date on ps5 to save some of these studios.

jznrpg6d ago

I can see Ninja Theory. At least Tango made a game that was reviewed well. Ninja Theory spent a lot of years to release a tech demo that didn’t do well at all.

repsahj6d ago

I get it that Hellblade 2 is a boring game, but I hope they are not the next to be closed.

ABizzel15d ago

@repssahj

Ninja Theory is likely on the chopping block too. They released Bleeding Edge which bombed, took 4 years to release Hellbalde 2 which doesn’t seem to be doing well, and still have Project Mara in limbo. They’re high on the chopping block.

MS was likely expecting their God of War / Uncharted quality game from NT based on Heavenly Sword, Enslaved, DmC, and to an extent Hellblade 1, but NT hasn’t delivered since Hellblade 1 which was 7 years ago.

I rarely agree with you but on this I do!

PRIMORDUS6d ago

3 trillion MS is worth, yet they do this, well Phil the shit bag did. No studio needed to be let go, when you are worth this much.

Sad, but I see characters and posters of either less than average or barely average games.

LoveSpuds6d ago

Have to disagree here duder, with respect. Evil Within was a good game and the sequel was fantastic, as was HiFi Rush. I'd concede Ghostwire was pretty average but regardless, shuttering a studio which just put out MS best game in donkeys years was complete shithousery on XBox' part.

Einhander19726d ago (Edited 6d ago )

Microsoft paid 8B to buy Zenimax then fired well over 1000 people from Zenimax between the time they closed the deal and they announced these shut downs.

People talk about the 1900 they fired most recently, but that was only one wave of three sets of layoffs from their gaming division so far this generation totalling around 5000 people this generation. Not counting the dozen plus studios they canned last gen including Lionhead the original Fable developers.
