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

I'm giving it 4 Resident Evils out of 5 Disjointed Chapters.

This is based on streams alone.

I can't believe they made another one of these. I remember walking out during a demo session of the first game. I was not impressed.

Agreed, it felt so clichéd and uninspired. Sequel not looking better either. The engine with its horrible texture loading problems doesn't help either.

I’m still amazed how low the mc is on the first one. It just didn’t gel with most critics.

Gelled with me though!

I'm out of the loop on this game but why is there a review embargo if Bethesda doesn't send review copies anymore? Did their policy change? Or is this the embargo for when they won't take down reviews from people who got the game early through unofficial means?

Eurogamer Italy gave it 80/100 - 'It won't be remembered as the best horror game of 2017, but it will certainly send some chills down your spine'

How long ago did reviews copies go out? Only like 2 days ago, right? How many reviews are we actually going to get today? And of the ones we get how many are not gonna be rushed?

I mean this is better than bethesda not giving out any review copies, but they really gotta get with the program.

I think for a none open world/grindy/ubisoft game it's a fair time frame.

2 days to play what I assume is a 10-15 hr game, that apparently has
some open world elements and side quests
, digest that experience, and write a decent, well-thought out review? Nah man. 2 days is not enough.

75 Metacritic, but with some reviewers rating it highly, others lowly. It was a big love it/hate it game.

Going by that id be happy with 70+. There really arn't that many AAA horror games about anymore, I think it's going to be appreciated alot more this time around, especially with less jank for the more casual gamer.

Expect them to be rushed. Lots of outlets only got it two days ago.
