    The PP 90 submachinegun fires 9mm rounds, makarov or parabelum, same shit as the handgun. (well, ingame each shot is IIRC WEAKER...Implying makarov).

    I'm just used to STALKER for my FPS needs, where a shot to the cranium tends to kill all non-mutant shit, and the mutants only survive because they're said to have bones as tough as steel, and lack nerves.

    Ethan must die is the biggest pile of shit i've played so far. The concept is good.. But you need to finish the level without dying.. Doesn't sound so hard right? You get 1-2 shot depending on if you block or not. The loot is RANDOM. And to make things worse the boxes with loos is randomly exploding aswell. So either you need to pray to god you get a decent range weapon to open boxes for more weapons/ammo or pray to holy hell that the boxe you just knifed didn't explode and 1 shot you.

    I really don't get why they put so much RNG shit in these DLC's. It's like they couldn't make the game hard so they want to fuck you over with luck instead.

    I never had a problem with the camera angles. I actually really like fixed camera angles.

    Most rooms are fine, but some rooms are a clusterfuck when the angle changes, and it keeps changing because the orientation of the character changes.

    Indiemaus does them jokingly though. I mean, the last video is "top 10 Dark Souls ladders".
    It's what happened to most Dark Souls channels after DS3 has worn out; memes, shitposting, shrek or bugging off to other games like Nioh has been.

    What's hilarious is the video opens with, "You know what I fucking hate? Top ten lists. I hate the smug douchebags who claim there's Easter Eggs inside and there's not. Virtually all of them are complete shit and here's some examples of the ones I truly hate."

    Late update about the season pass but here we go.

    Nightmare: You are locked in the basement and you need to survive for quite some time. You can put up trip mines/turrets and buy weapon/ammo by using metal you can get from certain machines. It is a fun enough concept but after 1 try i didn't bother again. It's ok but nothing great.

    Bedroom: Short puzzle adventure. You need to escape from being locked in a bedroom without the mother finding out you are trying to escape. She can see if things are moved etc. Not bad tbh but really short.

    21: Saw meets blackjack.. You need to get to 21 or as close as possible. If you lose you will either lose a finger or later get shocked. If you hit 10 you will die. You do however get bonus cards that gives you more "damage" towards the opponent or being able to draw specific cards such as 2-3-5 etc But most of the times those cards doesn't work for you but they seem to work 99% for the opponent as the card has to be in the deck.
    Boring RNG crap if you ask me. Probably the worst of the bunch.

    Daughters: Really short story driven DLC about what happened before the Bakers turned into what you see in the game. Jack is a nice guy damn it! :P Good but way to short even with 2 endings it took me less than 15 minutes for both i think.

    Ethan must die: You spawn outside the house and pretty much all locations have changed. You start with a knife and there is random boxes with random loot scattered all over the place. Sounds fun? Well the boxes can explode. Including the first boxes you find! Sounds fun? You get 1 to max 2 hit when blocking.. Sounds fun? You can clear several rooms without getting any weapon.. But you can also get a new weapon! I got another knife as the only weapon untill i hit the basement... What's up with capcome and their love for RNG all of a sudden?
    Also if you die you start over..
    Good concept but way to much RNG for me. Allready got both achievements so i won't touch it again.

    Jack's 55th birthday: I was not expecting much from this but it was kinda fun. Jack is sitting at a table and he is hungry.. Party hat and clown nose on! Now you start in a safe room with an item box. You unlock items by clearing the levels and what you get depends on how fast you cleared a level. The enemies have party hats on for the sillyness of the DLC and you need to find wine/food and spices to use on the food, Once your iventory is full run back to Jack and watch him gobble it all down in a second or 2 before you run back to find the remaining food.
    There are 6lvl's i think but i only tried the first one. Had to get S rank before i quit for tonight. Fun enough and they added quite a lot of new items in there.

    I can't help but think the DLC for Resident Evil 7 would have worked better if they'd tried not to get a bunch of short bits out and instead expanded the game to something actually interesting with a decent time chunk.

    Clancy's Bogus Journey: I think we really could have had a good game where Clancy wakes up in Margueritte's care and proceeds to try to escape from the Baker mansion. You might think it's depressing but you could have Clancy try to rescue Pete and maybe yet another of Lucas' death rooms. You could also potentially have Clancy rescue other hostages like Travis' mentioned girlfriend or the three college girls. You could maybe also tie it to the ending of the game where the people Clancy rescues are picked up by the Umbrella helicopter only for him to get captured in the end by Lucas.

    You know, a full scale adventure.

    Daughters: I think this adventure should have been expanded with Zoe going with Jack to pick up the people inside the tanker and rescue them. You could also expand it to a steal mission where Mia gets Zoe to get a serum so Zoe can be made immune to Eveline's mind-control. Have Zoe end up suceeding but only having enough serum for herself rather than Mia (or maybe herself and her brother). Basically, not the tiny adventures we got to go along with "Not a Hero."

    Full on hours long adventures. As is, these feel like the adventures in Alien: Isolation, which were entirely pointless.

    Moving away from RE7 a sec, I've recently been playing the first Revelations game again. I love the whole ship lost at sea idea, with mutants on-board and nowhere to escape to. I enjoy the atmosphere and like all the various enemies you face.

    However I am again reminded of several things that irritated me when I played it the first time and seem to do so even more this time around. There are multiple things that I would criticize about Revelations but given the thread title I'll mention these few in particular.

    Here's Jill's main outfit in Revelations.


    The cleavage is daft but it's mild and the rest of her outfit is practical so it doesn't really bother me.

    Now let's look at Rachel Foley, a supposed agent of the FBC (Federal Bioterrorism Commission):


    ...we're seriously expected to believe she's some kind of federal field agent? Did her suit shrink, the zip break or did her jugs just decide "We need air!"?

    How the hell can she see where the fuck she's going with her hair like that? Does she have Gunther Hermann eyes under that mop or does she see with her tits?

    But as daft as the above is, nothing tops Jessica's wetsuit outfit:


    It just...it makes no fucking sense. It's ridiculous as fuck. It's purely just to show her ass off (she mentions her "sweet ass" several times if it wasn't obvious enough). What fucking use is a wetsuit if it exposes you?
    Not to mention in the first episode she's wearing shorts with leggings and high-heeled boots whilst trekking a fucking mountain.

    Some of you might say Rachel is worse but as bad as her appearance is, she isn't shoved into your face with "Ooo look how hot I am!" Or at least to begin with.

    I'm fine with a bit of sex appeal but not if it's blatant in-your-face that makes no logical sense. Unless it's a game that is not serious at all or does it in a decent way it just doesn't work for me.



    Now THIS is fucking sensible. I actually think this rendition of Jill is more attractive than any of her other ones. To me this version seems more like an actual person instead of a pair of walking tits and ass purely there just to get the player hard.

    Anyway, rant over. Carry on.

    I said it myself when i first played revelations. They really tried to sell it with tits and ass. Sadly most/all new characters are weak and uninteressting besides maybe Norman.

    I'm not a person who is going to complain too much about fanservice in general. I think the idea everything should be practical and appropriate like Jill's is only true if you actually think the setting should be practical and realistic. I think of Resident Evil in a much more stylized manner and think it should be beautiful and silly.

    RE4 for example, didn't take itself seriously IN THE SLIGHTEST and was well beloved.

    Albeit, I think you do lose some of the horror with Claire and Moira's alternate costume in RER2.


    Then again, maybe I am biased because I love Jill's clubbing attire and Ada's Chinese dress kung fu.


    I will say that I have a kind of uncanny valley effect in reverse, though. I don't mind fanservice and ridiculous costumes in general but only if the game is overthetop and the characters themselves appear human or are into the silliness. Sniper Wolf and Metal Gear Solid is all for the crazy overthetop outfits but not so much something trying to be taken seriously.

    I also dislike when characters are deformed out of a belief this makes them more attractive. Indeed, Resident Evil's women are notably some of the most pleasing to look out in games because they're the most human looking. I also prefer Claire dressed like this versus Daisy Duke.


    So I guess I'm split down the middle. I don't mind impractical sexy outfits but keep it in reasonable levels. Also, if we are to take the characters seriously, it's probably going to need people dressed more like Mia than Jill in Nemesis.

    Edit:

    I completed the first episode of Revelations 2 yesterday and so far I'm enjoying the game even if it's quite a step down from 4 and 7. I also think it's a game which is limited by the system it was made for as there's very little room for stealth, outrunning people, or anything but shooting. Still, I've got to say I like the premise of following up Claire's adventures from Degeneration where she's working for "Bioweapon Relief Without Borders" and gets kidnapped by Wesker's sister (spoiled on that).

    The Overseer is ridiculously overthetop and doing some full on Nazi experiments, which is always a nice reminder Umbrella was a bunch of scumbags. But I also am enjoying Barry revisiting the island six months later, too. It's a neat little way of saving disc-space. Moira is a great character too even if the Natalia character annoys me in ways i can't put into words.

    In terms of outfits, I didn't mind RE5's default ones.

    With the armour items it makes them get even more coverage.

    Moira is quite horrible in the enlighs versions. She is apperantly not like that at all in the japanese version of the game. I thought she could be a great new addition to the game but the way she was acting in REV2? No way.

    As a question, why did Jill suddenly turn blonde, gain superpowers, and get some awesome tits?
