I can see myself doing nothing but resource gathering sidequests for the first 3 hours lol.

Looks like you can get all the 'main' weapons in that first moment.

Based on the opening , Just like Seb , Kidman look is totally different than her TEW1 look , In TEW1 she had that fatigued stiff face look while in TEW2 her face looks like a model , Also looks like not only her mouth that got bigger , If you know what i mean

Looks like a bug was found. Side mission where the ghost girl stalks you in an open parking lot with a car horn going off...he was killed by her but returned to try again but she was nowhere to be found....but when you come across the ghost girl your screen turns into a blue hue...he was stuck in that blue hue and it wouldn't let him progress.

Reloading a checkpoint fixed it.

Also I wonder if all this side quest stuff can ruin the pacing of the game. I know I could get lost for hours having fun doing the side quests.

I'm not really sure it's a glitch, I notice on the map there's a second green 'point' he's not investigating and the side quest objective tells him to investigate both points.

Ah, lol so you're watching the same stream...and now that you mentioned it...you may be onto something. He isn't very thorough in the environment so there is stuff I noticed he would miss.

I'm curious how weapons work in this game. If you explore around Chapter 3 you can get the crossbow, the shotgun, and the sniper all pretty early in. But if you don't get them, do they appear later? Can you completely miss them? If you don't collect them later, do you get a chance to later? I'm curious.

I think there are multiple weapons in a weapon type, kinda like....RE4/5...

Because when they were explaining weapon upgrade I swear it was mentioned that the upgrades "apply across the same weapon types" or something like that.

I mean, we do get a unique 3-burst pistol for pre-ordering.

You for sure can miss guns.

This dude is the best thing in the game that I've seen so far. Finally got to a point in a stream that shows him.

You got keys and could unlock body bag containers in the morgue area where the nurse in between chapters

Ok, that makes sense. The locker keys are just too damn close to Yakuza for me not to notice. :p

I shall name him... Goopy McGooperson

I'd like to see Shinji Mikami top that name

Also, starting to slowly feel hyped. My gaming time has been 100% Switch since March. Haven't really touched my PS4 Pro since abandoning Nioh for Zelda. But I will dust it off for this game. Just need to get in the mood for TEH HORRORZ.

Long neck monsters are such a Japanese yokai design
SHINJI MIKAMI: "So team, let's begin working on Evil Within 2. Anyone have any ideas for new monsters?"

STAFFER: "How about a rokurokubi?"

MIKAMI: "No, no... It's too cliche."

STAFFER: "OK, well... what if it was a rokurokubi, but made out of jizz?"

MIKAMI: "..."




MIKAMI: "Promote this man!"

I mean, the creature looks like it could have created the goop on the cover of the game. I wonder if there's a deeper meaning behind it.

They said that the goop is high concept, no deeper meaning other than representing the stuff in the STEM tubs.

I believe them, but I also do think the monster could have a bigger role, especially with the role it plays in the bit there.

It also has a REALLY creepy theme, which the theme reveals I guess the monsters name is literally 'Psychoplasm' (the other monster songs are named after the monsters which is why I say this). You can hear a preview of its theme here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0767PDF2L/ref=dm_ws_tlw_trk22
Yeah for sure, even all of the lost are covered in it.

Btw got any links to that encounter, do we know what Anima is yet?

edit: nvm just saw that Anima is "ghost laura".

Autoignition where you at? There is a scene right after Stefano gets beaten that's such a fake out for a few secs, you think it's Ruvik but it's Myra. Spooky cloaked Myra.

Credits just popped on that stream. :O

Nice! He seemed to be playing pretty fast throughout so I'm curious if we'll get a final stats screen at the end. If anyone sees it and I miss it, I would love to see his final playthrough time.

Also I think he was playing on Survivor too.

Edit: He finished in 15.5 hours. This is going to be a 30 hour game for me easily, playing on Nightmare and I explore and go really slow when I play.

So what are your thoughts for this Stem alike machine in this Old and abandoned room implies in the extra ending scene ? Could it be Pre-game DLC or a Teaser for Third game ? Ruvik's version of the Stem ?

And based on the ending , I guess we are done with Seb in the future games so I guess if there is ever TEW3 it won't star him unless it is something to do with Myra again

I also guess we would get a Myra DLC that explains what she had done to stop Mobuis from the inside

Well we still have Joseph and Ruvik to address, unless I missed something. Joseph is still alive, Kidman said it's a long story when Sebastian asked about it.
