Let’s Play Resident Evil 7 Part 5 – Resident Kinevil

Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has been netting award nominations at several outlets, and for good reason: it’s tense, terrifying, and one of the best entries in the long running series. So, the timing couldn’t be better for our playthrough.

And if you thought Mary Kish had an itchy trigger finger before this episode, you have no idea. In fact, one might say her trigger finger is more than itchy. In this episode of Resident Kinevil 7, Mary’s trigger finger essentially spasms every five minutes. It definitely doesn’t lead to her wasting any ammo, though, so that’s good. Anyway. Enjoy the episode!

To catch up on previous episodes of Resident Kinevil, where Mike Mahardy and former GameSpot member Mary Kish play through every numbered Resident Evil game, you can visit the show’s page here, or its YouTube channel here.

As part of the game’s re-reveal ahead of a 2018 release, Media Molecule has offered some details about Dreams’ main story mode, its creation tools, and the social aspects including in the creation-focused game.

Media Molecule’s Alex Evans, Siobhan Reddy, and Mark Healey joined Double Fine’s Tim Schafer on stage during PSX 2017 to explain what exactly players can expect from the narrative in a game so focused on user-generated content.

Dreams will feature three intertwined stories, which gave the developers the ability to explore different genres and gameplay ideas rather than sticking to just one. The story will focus on a man named Art, who appeared in Dreams’ The Game Awards 2017 trailer, and the characters within his dreams.

Papers, Please PS Vita Release Date Finally Confirmed

Papers, Please, Lucas Pope’s acclaimed indie game in which players assume the role of an immigration officer for the fictional country of Arstotzka, will be available for PlayStation Vita on December 12.

Pope announced the date on Twitter, where he posted a picture of the game running on Sony’s handheld with the date attached. Unfortunately, Pope didn’t say exactly how much the game will cost, but noted that “it should be roughly if not the same as desktop.” Currently, Papers, Please is available on Steam for $9.99/£6.99.

Papers, Please was originally released for PC in August 2013. A year later, it became available on iOS devices. Although a PlayStation Vita version was also announced in 2014, Pope said there were some issues with the port that had to be resolved before it could happen.

“I do want to do a Vita version, but the thing is there’s a lot of kind of interesting UI challenges to make it work well on Vita: much smaller screen, much smaller hit targets,” he told VG247. “So that kind of stuff interests me to try to figure out how to make it work well on Vita.”

In GameSpot’s Papers, Please review, Britton Peele said the game “will stress you out” and “at times it may even make you hate yourself.”

He continued: “And while it’s weird to call such an experience ‘enjoyable,’ the gameplay itself is not a miserable time. It’s worthwhile for the same reasons a depressing novel or a bleak movie can be worthwhile. There are lessons to be learned from Papers, Please, if only to remind ourselves how much worse off we could be.”

Outlast 1 And 2 Are Coming To Switch

Outlast and Outlast 2 Switch ports are incoming. Right now, we know for sure that both ports will hit the hybrid system in Q1 2018.

Developer Red Barrels announced the ports via Facebook, thanking fans for sticking around for the last five years, detailing a little more about the future of Outlast, and what fans can expect next year. We don’t have a specific release date/price point yet, and no details have been released whether if either port will have any exclusive or additional content.

As for the future of the series, the post details DLC is not in the works for Outlast 2. Fan’s cries have been heard regarding more content, but according to the developer the title simply wasn’t made with DLC in mind, unlike its predecessor.

No Caption Provided

Part of the issue with DLC for Outlast 2 is that the ideas just don’t work as additional content. The game was designed to “make you feel like a rat in a maze, without any knowledge of what’s outside the maze.” Not all hope is lost, however. The team is working on a new Outlast-esque experience, though it won’t be a sequel.

“Currently we’re working on something a lot of you have been asking for… It won’t be a sequel to Outlast or Outlast 2, but it will be a distinct experience set in the Outlast universe. We can’t say more right now, we first need to make sure we can make it work. Like I mentioned, we strive to be risk-takers and this one is a pretty big challenge. If all goes well, we’ll soon be able to reveal more.”

As for the next core Outlast title, Red Barrels’ post confirms that there is a place for Outlast 3 at some point in time. Currently, the team doesn’t have any details or answers to give, but it will eventually happen–but only if fans can outlast the wait.

New Spider-Man Animated Movie Starring Miles Morales Coming, And It Looks Amazing

Sony and Marvel have released a trailer for an unexpected new Spider-Man movie titled Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse. Unlike the other big-screen Spidey flicks, this one is animated, and stars Miles Morales, who started life in the Ultimate Universe but has since crossed over into various other Marvel comic realities.

The trailer, which you can watch below, is incredibly stylish, with vibrant colors and iconic Spider-Man motifs from start to finish. There’s almost a sci-fi, Blade Runner-like quality to the way the city is presented and, at one point, comic book visuals quickly flash in and out of a chase sequence–it’s incredibly cool.

The inclusion of “Spiderverse” in the title may have tipped you off to one of the other big hooks for this movie: there’s more than one Spider-Man. From the looks of it, Miles will be interacting with not just Peter Parker, but other Spideys too.

Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the duo behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street are the creative team behind Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse.

As noted in the trailer’s YouTube description, the duo are attempting to “bring their unique talents to a fresh vision of a different Spider-Man Universe, with a groundbreaking visual style that’s the first of its kind.” It continues: “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse introduces Brooklyn teen Miles Morales, and the limitless possibilities of the Spider-Verse, where more than one can wear the mask.”

Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse will hit theaters in Christmas 2018. Lord and Miller were previously working on Star Wars spin-off Solo: A Star Wars Story but the pair were replaced by Ron Howard in June.
