So this was an unexpected surprise for me. I wasn’t 100% on buying this one and honestly was going to wait a few months before buying it. However!! I kept hearing mixed things about it so I wanted to make my own opinion..and here…we…go!

So Re 8 OR Village as it’s called.. Takes place a few years after RE 7 and it is for the most part a sequel to RE 7. You play as Ethan Winters “RE 7” once again and you’re trying to find you’re daughter. Not going to spoil anything with the story BUT I find it funny that this poor man keeps putting himself into these situations where he has NO IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON!?

The game is beautiful in both terms of graphics and sound. It has a very cool story that directs you the entire game. Some interesting puzzles and monsters. The one thing I have to give Capcom so much credit for is Originality with this part of the series. The places you go to have a good mix of RE 1 and something new. People said we would see werewolves but they really seem like hairy hobos on steroids to me. Some of the designs look like characters from Bloodborne which isn’t a bad thing.. but yea.. odd..

This game is also very much in terms of the series an action game. Yes it has horror elements to it but compared to RE 7. Lots of pick up of inventory items like keeping track of Ammo, Herbs, and Key Puzzle Items. It made me happy to see the search and remember locations return for this game. Honestly it felt like a big return to RE 1 in that respect. Having to find a key and remember which doors to open. I liked it!

This week it was announced DLC is being worked on. I think it’s fun for the price I paid for it. Could I have waited? Sure.. But It was a fun experience and a good addition to the series. By the end of the game you will understand why it’s a RESIDENT EVIL game… check it out if you got the money it’s worth it..

Yeap another version of Street Fighter 2! So what did I think of it and what is different?…Here…we….go…

To begin with in terms of gameplay this is just street fighter 2 but with the added meter bar for an ultra special move if you build it up. Nothing really new to the series in terms of that. However what you are really paying for this time around is the extra modes, the addition of two extra characters “Violent Ken and Evil Ryu” and a big update on the graphics, sound and oddly enough backgrounds. All of which you can switch between the HD remix version and the Classic version that was introduced back in 93.

Of course what would a fighting game be these days without some online component. This game has both a online private setting and a online mode that randomly puts the player against random online fights while you play thru single player mode. It does have a ranking system and a bit of a leaders bored. It’s fun to say the least and is a good update for what it’s worth.

I think the biggest selling point are the modes which oddly enough capcom tried at a first person mode for a fighting game which is fun but gets boring pretty fast. Kinda a silly thing to do while trying to be engaging. It’s currently not on sale anymore..at this moment but will be again soon I’M SURE.. I wouldn’t pay the entire price… Just wait for it to go on sale and try it yourselfs!
