With the full game now out, it's time to say that Resident Evil Village's tall vampire lady, Lady Dimitrescu, is a big disappointment.
Only simps wanted to see her all game. Her time in the game is perfect.
the whole game is a disapointment ....from the best most atmospheric science fiction survival horror series ...became a freak show for laughs (and tears for the old fans) .. ...the wolfmen , the monster lady (should have beard too to complete the failure) , the muppets and the hunchman
absolute shit take
Agree. This isn't resident evil
30 games later and you diehards still want basic zombie games.
There's many who find 7 the best in the series, and I'm one of them. Sometimes you simply have to accept that series can change over time. You don't have to like it, but it's pointless to constantly go out of your way to crap all over something you don't like.
Lol. What were people expecting, exactly?
I guess more of her in the game. The internet hype kind of made people think her role was more than it was. Nothing wrong with her in game, a fantastic addition to the RE universe just hype has a tendency to overblow everything.
Pervs placed all the hyped on her, not Capcom.
Her presence was a huge letdown. She just needed to be utilized better in her segment, not necessarily the whole game. There is one very small area where she hangs out, and appears in a few more even smaller scripted areas. You turn, run through a door or two, and your safe. People wanted more of a Mr X type scenario for her area of the game, and it wasn't even close to that. She is no better than Maw was in The Medium if we are being real here.
MAW WAS COOL BRO! HAVEN'T PLAYED THIS ONE YET, BUT PEOPLE ARE TOO ENTITLED
There is nothing entitled about having expectations based on what we were shown. Seems you can't be disappointed these days without being called "entitled" by apologists. Maw had potential, but was too scripted and under utilized. However that is another topic.
You're acting very entitled, though. She's a character and that's it. She serves her purpose - doesn't matter what the demo contained. You weren't promised anything, nor were you misled. Lady Dimitrescu is a sliver of the game IN a sliver of the game, which is what the demo was and was meant to be. That's that.
@synthetic I never said we were promised anything, just what people were hoping for and that her presence was underwhelming. Good god it is pathetic that people cannot express criticism based on opinion. This is why good conversations about games don't happen anymore. "agree with me or you are entitled" Sad state of people these days, but given how this newer generation acts I am not suprised. It is like trying to have a serious discussion with a small child at this point.
writer of the topic is a coomer lmao she was perfect, didn't outstay her welcome in the game. the entirety of RE8 was just perfect pacing and level design which compliments the enemies of that certain area
Haven't played yet but I knew this would happen. One short demo and suddenly the internet loses their mind over her. Capcom never expected all this free marketing which obviously paid off very well for them in the end. Once again, this teaches people a lesson of managed informed expectation. Capcom never said she was the main villain nor did they say she would feature prominently. Extreme hype leads to disappointment. Cyberpunk is a very good example of this.
big boobs do that to children.
Adults too. You will know when you see some that aren’t your own Hiyooooooo
big ass even more so. 2b was forced to extended her career into porn. i can imagine the same will happen to her.
Capcom didn't make promises about her. Cyberpunk promised many things they didn't deliver. Cyberpunk is not an example of this. CDPR manufactured fake hype with lies during many videos on youtube and closed door demo footage. Capcom released a demo for everyone that people ran with assumptions on.
Cyberpunk wasn’t finished.
Yeah she kinda is. She's great in the game but barely in it. The internet really grabbed ahold of her and blew her out of proportion. The Darth Maul effect.
Yeah but even Capcom pushed her as the poster girl for the game. Surely they're also a bit guilty of misleading people slightly? They know sex sells and here's the proof
It does feel totally pantomime so far.
I played the first hour or 2 and it feels heavily scripted and boring so far. I’m already in the castle, I hope that’s not all the “village” was. Like 10 crusty houses lol.
Haha did people expect the game was about her chasing you the entire game? Kink fantasies over taking sense.
Someone said they was hoping she steps on him, so he allow his character to die lol!!! Horny dude.
The game is not bad, not the greatest but not bad. Just wish the movement of Ethan was a tiny bit faster and smoother, just feels a bit clunky.
He don't have agility like Leon and Chris LMFAO
He's been trained by Chris and the Military now.
Turn off camera acceleration for both aiming and movement in option settings. You can thank me later.
Or set it to Strong like I did. Weirdly it works the opposite way you'd think. Weak is the most sluggish and is more or less unplayable, the default mid setting is OK but still feels laggy, Strong is perfect for me as it still gives the movement a little weight but doesn't feel slow. Off is obviously the most responsive but it feels a bit too twitchy and arcade like for a game like this in my opinion (would be best for mercenaries though).
The movement is better than Resident Evil 7where I felt like a turtle moving while running away from Molden enemies and bosses, but in Village I have more freedom of movement. Ethan Winters is one of the most bland characters ever in a video game! Poor acting and poor reaction when his wife Mia was killed. Damn she did cook a mean dinner I would love to eat, but Chris stop it smh! He should have let her eat her last supper with Ethan. Damn now the dinner is cold lol.
Thanks for the spoiler in the header.
Basically we need a new Dead Space and Alien Isolation 2 but with more combat and halfway.
Well that's what happens when you overhype 1 character in a relatively short game that will obviously have multiple antagonists.
I'm not too into her. But her fly conglomeration daughters? UNGH. Bite me harder, Cassandra.
It was obvious from the reaction after the first time she was revealed that she was being built up too much. The game's not about her and personally I never expected it to be.
Well many people failed to realize that Capcom didn't expect so much praise for Lady Dimitrescu, and they were quite surprised with the fans responds. If you understand what I just said, you would realize that Capcom didn't add more screentime for Lady Dimitrescu, because it was already too late for that. Dimitrescu story starts in the castle and ends there, along with the 3 daughters. I got to say Dimitrescu reminds me so much of Mr. X and that scary looking gray Titan. They both move similar hunting you down. Man when she bends down to get out the door, she gave me a scare with her Freddie Kruger claws! And she can throw you around the room too. I already like this game better than Resident Evil 7, and movement is faster too.
She wasn't even hot
I can’t put the game down, it’s very good and that lady is one creepy person! I like her character and the others that are in her crew. Theres an homage to dolls movie in here! Very well done! 10/10 for me and I’m enjoying this more than Returnal. No idea what people are even complaining about, probably most haven’t even played it!
No. no she's not, it's on you for hyping up an obvious beginner section of a game.
