I'm ready for more Evil Within. Just give me a more focused story and a smooth engine and we're golden.

Would you guys want Sebastian back as the main character or would you rather play as someone else this time around?

The Evil Within doesn't have an FOV option in the PC port. But it is a very easy thing to alter. I remember doing it with cheat engine with my first playthrough.

Yes God. Hopefully it's more like the earlier sections of the game rather than the later. It was very much like RE4 in the sense that the first introduced area was great and then they became increasingly worse imo. Still the shooting was satisfying although the story was a little out there. It was some cross between RE and MGS in terms of weirdness. I'm just hoping the graphics have been heavily tuned up and didn't take the Shadow of War approach and think bigger is better.

I don't think the bombs are one hit kills. They do a ton of damage but they shouldn't kill you in one hit.

Normal difficulty was okay. I think they should add hard mode in it though.

Bethesda going hard. Prey, New BGS Ip, Wolfenstein, and Evil Within 2. None of that
is unexpected, but it a could be a damn good 2 year stretch if everything hits.

Personally, I still think Evil Within is my favorite new ip of the generation, top 5 at least. Sequel is Day 1, for sure.

TEW is the best horror game from this gen alongside RE7. If they improve on the technical issues the first game had this will be an amazing horror experience.

It's a good, solid horror game that fell a bit short of what I would have expected out of Mikami. I hope the sequel is more focused and less linear.

The DLC was horrendous. I hope it's nothing like that.

I played the hard mode you get after beating the game once on normal. It was the pitch-perfect difficulty. I've never experienced more tense combat. It would be nice to have that as an option from the beginning.

I couldn't beat it. And I've beat all the RE games on hard and tons of other third person shooters on hard. It's pretty much the only game I was forced to beat on easy.

Sebastian has to come back as the protagonist after the reveal of Myra at the end of The Consequence DLC. This is unequivocally his story, even if the moment-to-moment events of the game didn't do a great job of conveying that.

I want my goddamn Joseph DLC this time, though.

I think they both really came into their roles by the DLCs. Carpenter was awesome throughout both the DLCs, and Mount nailed his line delivery in the KCPD flashbacks in The Consequence. Now that they both have more practice in the booth, I think they'll be fine.

Besides, Anson Mount was Sebastian's face model. It'd be weird to just axe him like that.

This was a great reminder that I need to finally play through The Evil Within. Bought it when it was on sale but was worried that the technical issues would be frustrating. Then boost mode came along and from the DF video it looks to make a huge difference. Can't wait to play this boosted next weekend!

We always knew this IP would get more than a single shot by Bethesda. Anyway, wow. 1,400/hour, 224,000/month contract work for a few months in Minato-ku... requiring J-to-E and E-to-J translation of highly technical bug reports. Extensive knowledge of video games, the mechanics behind them, and probably UE4 almost certainly very much preferred.

All this majesty can be yours for under $2000 USD/month in the heart of Tokyo. Hope you're living with your parents, have zero expenses, and are somehow under 25 with all the knowledge the job demands.

By the way, there miiiight be some overtime and hey we can't promise you won't have to work on weekends and holidays.

Sorry, I'm really, really jaded, and working in the Japanese game industry is straight-up soul-murdering from Day One.

Harder than the one hit kill mode? Save gets deleted when you die? Mikami comes to your home and beats you up if you die?

I would play the fuck out of that mode. AKUMU was like beating my head against the wall, so it just saves me a step if Mikami comes to my house and does it for me.

I thought the first game was pretty middling with some good ideas but dragged down by the weight of its other terrible ideas and just some idiotically designed segments.

Hopefully it can improve and carve its own identity next time around.

Going by the ending he does make the most sense.

Still, I wouldn't mind Kidman taking the lead.

I don't consider RE or TEW horror games. At least not as it's only identifier. Since as you said, they go all over the place.

given the dlc ending it's pretty obvious Sebastian is returning as a main character.
That dlc pretty much guaranteed a sequel so i presume they've ben working on a second game for a while now. Fingers crossed it's at e3.

Well then why would the normal mode need to be easier? You have option for easier difficulty if the normal is too much.

Harder mode that is unlocked immediately. Akumu is fine as a challenge mode but I would like to be able to start the game on harder difficulty than normal.

I'm not too sure. Dishonored 2 pulled off an A/B scenario without a DLC. The thing with the Kidman DLCs is that they were so different from Sebastian's gameplay and setting that they couldn't just have them as a viable main campaign. Plus, it kind of screws up the pacing of Sebastian's story, since so much gets revealed in the first hour of Kidman's campaign alone. That was why the makers of the DLCs screamed at everyone to play the main game first.

There was a bunch of stuff that could easily have been cut out of the main game without much being lost.

Sticking in Kidman chapters in there instead (even if they only appeared at the end) would have made for a much better game (and a lot less story confused players).

idk I still think it would've been jarring and screwed up the pacing if it just randomly cut to Kidman all the time.

Joseph is alive. You see him being dragged away by Mobius goons at the end of The Consequence, and before that, if you stand next to his terminal in STEM, you can hear his heartbeat. His "alive" status was also confirmed by the DLCs' writer/director on Twitter.

I also want to play as Joseph at some point in the sequel.

He's not wrong though.

RE has always been more action than the proponents of horror RE make it out to be and I bet TEW ended up with way more action/combat than people expected.

They could have made it the final chapters or the post game. Either way, it was a big mistake to cut out something that story heavy from the main game imo.
