I feel like they keep making showcases with not enough content. It all feels stretched really thin.

Mercenaries being present is cool, but man, could the whole demo situation be any more confusing? Lmao. I feel like they didn't leave the schedules on screen long enough.

But yeah, timed demo? Nah, I'm good. I'll just wait.

So many different announcements and absolutely nothing I care for. I really thought things might turn around after REmake 2 but I guess not. Probably time for me to just move on.

I am little disappointed that the demo is timed once again and further disappointed as a PC VR user that RE4VR is exclusive to the Quest. Looking forward to 8 though.

Is a bit more accurate, I'm shocked they didn't get another booby streamer for this.

Well, that’s exactly what it is. It was, first and foremost, designed to be able to run on last gen hardware.
Not true at all. It was first designed around next generation console then downscaled on past generation.

I am incredibly confused regarding the demo? Do we have to play it within a certain time frame?
Yes, On the dates they provided, you will have a 8 hour window to try out the demo for 30 mins.

So its basically a 30-min demo that can only be accessed in that 8 hour window which is stupid lol

Probably saving the PSVR2 reveal for another day..

8 looks very promising, 4VR on Ocultist Quest 2 looks fun!
Taking a watch and see approach on the netflix series, don't really dig the render type cutscene vibe. Don't like the shooting game type either.

Either way, I'm waiting to play this on the new gen, hope i can find me a console soon.
If I cant, I'll skip it and play it when it does gets released in VR.

I hate that mainline RE is first person. HATE IT. Not a fan of first person in general and nobody else does third person survival horror anywhere close to RE (anymore). Yes, there's REmakes and spinoffs but I"m selfish and greedy! I also really wasn't digging anything I heard about Village. Sorry Lady D. go step on someone else's nuts.

Yet they've won me over. It looks really good. And we FINALLY get a decent extra mode again. And it looks really good too! Village looks so good that not only did I just preorder it (fuck off preorder haters) but I bought the package to get 7 as well. Might as well, finally, experience it all right?

Not to be a complete RE fangirl (I am though) what the fuck is with that limited time demo? The goofiest thing....

It's a minority lol. Mostly people who loved the 4-6 action slant and people who wanted 5-6 crackhead co-op.

RE7 going back to series roots is appreciated by most. The main thing people bitch sometimes about is first person.

It's not just that.
I say one of the best games for VR, because its an actual game.
But without it?
It's a mediocre FPS horror-lite, I generally shocked when people say it's scary
And despite having the foundating make-up of classic RE in the way you progress the game it quickly returns to it RE4 habbits, RE8 looks like it's gone full RE6 stupid.
You thought Chris punching boulders was stupid? Now he's a fucking werewolf FFS 🙄
RE7 is a great VR game, but that's about it.
RE8 doesn't even have that, we'll see

Not the case. It’s also pretty apparent by everything they’ve shown of the game so far.
Could be pretty apparent to you, but Capcom has worked initially just on next generation saying eventually would have ported it on past generation. That's what they did. Sure, graphic doesn't leaves speechless but it's another story.

Yeah, honestly Mercenaries alone means the game will probably have some decent replay value. That's awesome. Best news from the showcase for me. Everything else was pretty meh, lol.

I still think it looks really pretty, but I also just love that engine.

Lol at some folks thinking it looks ugly and gross. Eh, to each their own. 🤷🏻‍♂️

response to Bethesda acquisition ?
More likely it is a response to RE8 coming to Game Pass. I suspect it might be the case.
moneyhat Deathloop and Ghostwire -> purchase Bethesda
time limited demo -> launch in Game Pass

Mercenaries look more interesting than Ethan Must Die for sure but that's not exactly an achievement. I May skip the demo altogether, too close to release and I've seen enough.

Not a next-gen graphics flex but whatever, the campaign looks like it's gonna be an amazing ride and the mix of RE4 and RE7 I was hoping it to be.

Not ugly but honestly I expected more by Capcom on next generation console. This graphic should be surprising on past generation but it feels dated on ps5.

Is the quest 2 better than the rift s?

depends. you can use it wirelessly as a standalone system, so that's a plus!
it has better screens, so another plus.

but if you wanna use it on PC you have to use it through a USB cable, and that introduces a tiny amount of latency and compression on the video stream.

all in all it is better tho I would say

What an awful stream, convuluted demo, the game looks like a mismashed texture abortion from late PS3/mid PS4. The most shocking thing is people simping over the mop head makeupcaked Amy Shumer or whoever look alike.

Capcom has really taken all their crazy pills.

Honestly considering how long the PS5's been out and the use of RT effects, I'm sure it'll be fitting enough.

Really, people simping over her?
Whatever floats their boat 😐

Seriously Capcom, just give us a Next-Gen Upgrade for REmake2 & 3 with Raytracing and call it a day.

Expand on RE3 a bit too, call it the director's cut 😂

I was similarly unimpressed by the tech demo - just cus I felt it was weird that it had no real gameplay and the graphics weren’t mind blowing. But I’m pretty stoked to try an actual demo of it
Yeah, what was even the point?. if you're going to make a visual demo you better make sure it is impressive.

I believe they had some sort of contractual obligation with Sony, or maybe Sony asked Capcom to do it so they could squash the rumors of not running well on PS5.

I don't know why Capcom loves to give us time limits for their demo, just give us short and compact demo so we can play how many times we want and explore as much as we want without time limits.

yeah to me it looks just fine. I love the art direction, it's a lot of what made RE7 so good on a much larger scale. I already bought the game, fingers crossed it comes on time!

After years of reading about the hate boner people have for RE6, I can say, with conviction, that RE6 was one of my favorite Resi's. Played the whole game with a friend and replayed it last year with my son and it was such a blast. And I really dislike RE7.
