For a while now, Shinji Mikami, the man behind Resident Evil (among other things) has been teasing his new game, previously code named “Project Zwei”, because Mikami likes English like we like syphilis.
The announcement came through this morning that the project is in fact a survival horror game called The Evil Within. It’s being billed as “A return to TRUE survival horror” and “The perfect blend of action and horror.” The game is to be published by Bethesda Softworks and is being developed by Mikami’s studio Tango Gameworks.Continue reading →
Ahoy! After a long, long bout of bad luck with health (damn you flu!), Episode 4 of the Podcast has finally set sail. On this episode, we talk about AMY, how bad the reviews of it are, and reminisce about what makes survival horror scary. Then, we look back on the history of Hudson and other companies that have fallen since the start of this generation. And finally, we cover the resurgance of so-called “Game of the Year/Complete” editions of games and why this might be bad for the industry.
Earlier this week, news broke about a teaser site that, in all likelihood, was to build interest for the new Resident Evil game. And lo and behold, here we are, a new one announced and on the horizon.
From what little was gleaned from the site, the game is set ten years after the Raccon City incident. Seeing that people are getting a little too loose with the bioweapons again, The President of the United States (also known as the man who gave us that BITCH Ashley) has decided that revealing the horrors that occurred in that fateful affair might help to curb the resurging bioterrorist tendencies of the world around them, and he calls his old pal (and RE2 and RE4 protagonist) Leon S. Kennedy to be with him when he makes the announcement. This being a “not terribly pleasant” game, something goes wrong, the president is “transformed beyond recognition” and shit goes down.
Of course, all of that could have been avoided with the RIGHT man in office. Mechs trump bioterror any day...
