Don't really know what you guys are seeing in Daughters. Thought it was utterly boring. Also 21 isn't really cheap. You just need to pay attention to cards and when you know you are going to win dump all bet up cards on table and kill the opponent in one go. Problem with 21 is that the Survival+ is a slog and it is too much Saw instead of RE. Lucas was super funny though.
My favorite part of daughters is seeing the family being normal briefly and the house not a mess. I wish that the adventure was longer and went out to the boat house or showed where Zoe hid out for years.

Script names mean shit. If they are making the Character out to be Chris and in a twist its not they arent going to name the script sequences after the name that gets mentioned at the end of the game.

I still don't get why people think Chris got two different redesigns/new voice actors at once. Not A Hero is timed to release next to Vendetta where Chris looks much, much closer to his RE5/6 counterpart. Even if RE7 Chris is somehow still the same person with looks that changed because of whatever ridiculous reason Capcom writers come up with, I assume Vendetta is going to show what happened and some mutation/cloning/paranormal BS will be involved.

Also, not a surprise the character is still called Chris Redfield in DLC. He was named as such in credits. Doesn't mean there's no twist.

People still thinking it isn't Chris? I really do hope it is Chris. Really don't want Revelations style twists in mainline games.

That is definitely interesting and I like it too but like you said it should be longer and it should have actual meaningful gameplay. It really isn't worth the asking price.

This doesn't make sense.

If the RE7 ending Chris is an impersonator or clone he should look no different to Not a Hero Chris anyway.

The more logical explanation is that they had more time to finalize and tweak Chris' design after completing RE7.

Probably the movie has nothing to do with the team behind the game, and if they made a change so big into Movie Chris, the impact in the later revelatio of Chris 7 would be lesser, so it's just a "bottleneck design problem"

Who was, or is there an explanation for the Ghost girl in the demo?

Or was it all just bullshit.
Probably Eve making her way into the brain of the camera crew, she was grown up during the demo and the demo takes place a few months after the Daughters footage, so maybe she grew up to that point in that time, she wears the same clothes as the grandma, I think.

The demo takes place in 2017, between the Derelict House tape and Ethan arriving. I don't recall the specific dates, as the demo doesn't have one.

Is the demo even canon? Most of it just seems too out of place to tie into the main story.
You've got to figure it goes tape 1, Kitchen, demo (welcome to the family son ending), bedroom, nightmare, happy birthday.

Clancy was more of a badass than Ethan, he just didn't have the benefit of seeing someone go through Lucas's puzzle.

I would like to see some redemption for the Bakers. Their story is tragic. I feel like we are not going to revisit them ever, though.

Yes, the whole tape in Birthday, the van at the start of the game... Pretty much the non baker, Mia/Ethan, ship stuff is the camera crew story

The demo takes place in 2017, between the Derelict House tape and Ethan arriving. I don't recall the specific dates, as the demo doesn't have one.
But in the game there are a few hints about the crew being missing; the van, the deputy investigation, the newspaper, the corpse descomposing in the basement is probably clancy. So yeah I think at least 2-3 months before Ethan arrival.

I mostly prefer it that way - the a bioterrorism-related incident tears through their normal existence. I don't want them to undercut the tragedy.

Hopefully Zoe made it out in the canon. It'd be nice to see her turn up again.

The corpse in the basement is the first dude that goes missing. Clancy is the burnt corpse you get the keypad code off of.

I hope it's not Chris, it literally looks nothing like him, at all. I don't think using the different teams between Vendetta and RE7 is a good excuse as where is the consistency?

If Vendetta Chris looks like normal Chris then so can RE7's.

When they made Jill blonde get at least made her look like Jill.

Also this wouldn't be as confusing if Capcom knew how to keep consistency with their fucking voice actors.

Vendetta and RE7 having different teams being the cause of Chris looking different doesn't match precedent.

There was close collaboration between RE5 and Degeneration's team, as well as RE6 and Damnation, in terms of information sharing.

How about that JP voice actor who is the same person who has done Chris multiple times in the past. It is Chris.

And Ada's voice actor was the same for Carla Radames.
So using voice actor consistency is still not 100% proof.

In case someone missed it, the last part of the ending credits with the "newspaper" actually turns out to be an Umbrella sales pitch for the Type-E BOW to customers and observation report for the Bakers. Most of it scrolls by really fast though, but got a good screencap of the last still. If anyone else has the other pages of the report from the credits that would be awesome (realized too late those are more than flavor text), will try to take more screenies whenever I beat the game again in the coming weeks.

Find the info on Eveline's aging most interesting, seems like she needs a maintenance injection or otherwise a Solid Old Snake type rapid aging kill switch kicks in. Also explains why Eveline is so obsessed with Mia being her mother. And if there were any doubts that the new Umbrella company that inherited the E-Type research, tried to smuggle Eveline on the Tanker and Mia was working for (see reference to "handlers" on the right side) was also the one that set up the observation post in the mines and who Lucas was co-operating with, this pretty much answers it. More interesting morsels and context in there that is never mentioned or explained in the game otherwise.

...
Carla was a 100% identical clone of Ada. And fooled pretty much everyone in the game (besides Ada) by imposing her.

Because we were meant to think that Carla was Ada as she was a clone. So either this goes into clone storyline or he is Chris. DLC being named "Not a Hero" also implies way more into it being Chris.

Also was commenting on your point that it is confusing because inconsistencies in VA department when there actually isn't.

Still better than changing his face and voice for no reason.
I think it's still the same japanese voice actor though,they screwed it up during the english localization by the look of it.
Maybe they were too lazy to call RCS just for 3 lines of dialogue,i dunno.

Well, no he has a valid point. It's exactly what I thought when I saw that list. I personally don't care whether it is Chris or not, but that list doesn't prove anything other than... what they've named assets.

Let's use the Hunk theory as an example. Say they are trying to suggest the character is Chris in game, as they do, for some twist further down the line to reveal him as not-Chris. If they then label datamine-able assets as, for example, 'Hunk' - that would be absolutely moronic, so I say this purely from the perspective that, if this character isn't Chris, I'd at least hope Capcom were smart enough to lie in their asset naming.

But to laugh at someone for not being convinced by a named asset seems a bit paltry.
We'll have proof when the narrative is seen as definitive, and not before. Right now nobody knows who that character is other than the people at Capcom.

Im not in denial but if you are programming anything where for a majority of the story they are one character. You wont use anything but that name. You arent going to call each action Hunk_action.

Hey everyone, this is Dusk Golem aka AestheticGamer. I have posted on NeoGAF since 2011, and have decided to resign. I have enjoyed posting about horror games here for years, but I no longer wish to support the site and will be leaving for good. I will still be around the internet, I go by AestheticGamer on YouTube, I make games on Steam as Yai Gameworks, and I plan to go by Dusk Golem on other forums. I'll be joining an off-set of the GAF community leaving to try other ventures like ResetEra (Official Twitter for that here: https://twitter.com/reseteraforum ). I hope some of you who read this may consider it, and I plan to try to expose more people to horror games in the years to come. Just not here.

I hope you all are having a good day, and know I always loved the community, and in the end it's the community I'm going to stick with, not the site itself. If you want to follow me, my official Twitter is here: https://twitter.com/AestheticGamer1

Would they change the voice to keep cost low? Is that possible? I know that Capcom has been in trouble financially for some years now

they're not in trouble financially. that is a myth, they are just risk averse now. Capcom always changes RE voices, nothing new really they just don't care.

Okay, so with some Not A Hero details coming from the files (surprised they're in there), here's a few extra tidbits I'll throw into the fray (these are not from the files):

-There are at least two new types of Molded, one has pores which emit a toxic gas. Not only damages Chris, but also any regular Molded turn red and become more aggressive and powerful who end up in the gas. There's also smaller Molded who are obviously inspired by the Face Hugger from Alien.

-Chris wears an Umbrella Tech suit, upgrades with steroids (yes really) rather than regularly healing with herbs, and yes, can punch enemies.

-The DLC was developed by a third party studio, but Capcom wasn't happy with the quality it came out in so they're reworking the levels to be of higher quality, so don't take some elements in the DLC in the files to be finalized.

-You go rescuing your comrades from three trap dungeons that Lucas prepared and caught fellow operatives in.

-There is a unique boss battle in the DLC.

-This DLC piece was made third party again, but being touched up now by Capcom due to them not being happy with the quality, mostly level design stuff. This DLC is action-based while the last DLC from the Season Pass is being developed by the people who worked on RE7 with a horror focus and an interesting director.
Sounds really good. The last DLC being with a horror focus is a bit worrying though as it kinda could mean that you are unarmed. Hopefully it is just more of what RE7 was once you got a gun.
