    • Kai2591

      good music is loved by both men and monster :)

  • frogfro

    Now I have an itch to play RE 4 again…

    • fairysun

      One reason why German Suplex is my favorite melee move.

    • eilegz

      you can play re6 its a better game

  • Unlimax

    I like the last part of the video i hope there’s a lot of this in the game .. but i think they put so much focus on Gore more than horror in this game , it feels like Mikami take his inspiration from SAW movies and other Gore movies to make this game i mean take a look again at the events , the whole focus on the video was on psychological environment and the bloody atmosphere and to be honest i was expecting more than that as a Horror fan , looking forward for the game for my final judge if its truly has some true survival horror elements as Mikami promised .

    • supervamp

      I don’t know what you mean there was just the right balance in this

      • The Watcher

        I agree,

    Every time I look at this trailer, I would love to see more of that legged monster.. just gives me the creepy feeling down my spine! Seriously. Definitely consider buying this on next gen.

  • Anime10121

    It has a terrifying chainsaw guy…

    And obviously an idiot as the main character. Lets see, go in room, grab the only set of keys (as I doubt that big lug was able to go to Walmart and ask for duplicates) go back to locked door, open locked door, go up stairs while leaving locked door wide open.

    Flippin genious! smh

    • ninjabart122

      I’d hardly think that a locked door will stop the Big Bad from advancing towards the MC. I’m sure a horror film with a genre savvy character would end quickly.

      • Anime10121

        True, but it WOULD have bought him some more time! Plus he would have been able to HEAR the guy coming through the door. Just seemed like a dumb decision to me…

        • Kevin Schwarz

          Oh yeah? Imagine there are more enemies hiding in there, what if HE needs to run out, but he can’t because he locked the door?

  • Freakmasta

    So down to play this. And that…thing at the end was awesome.

  • eilegz

    i hope this its like a 10% advancement, it lack a lot of polish and the animations are really weird.

    While its good to see some SIlent Hill inspiration, the plot hopefully sort it out and explain it well.

    The house part reminds me a lot of RE4 which its not bad.

    • Daniel blue

      This is a Shinji Mikami game, the plot is guaranteed to be bonkers.

      Hopefully being a Shinji Mikami game also means the gameplay shall be top notch. That’s what matters in his games.

  • I get really excited when I see more news for this game! And then I get sad because horror games make my chest hurt and it’ll probably take me years to finish…unless it has a difficulty option (ehhhh?).

    Either way, I really like how it’s coming along and how many positive things I’ve heard from people about it :^)

  • Vadim Merzhey

    Everything is better with chainsaws.

  • Nitraion

    So much RE:4…
    if that is prologue maybe i will die few times a bit…
    but i hope they polish it again in final game

  • Shuga Suenaga

    umm i wanted a WiiU version r,r

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    The player burns that monster around 9:20… reminds me of burning zombies in the Resident Evil remake so they don’t become Crimson Heads… maybe it’s something similar?

  • fawzowz

    The nightmares im gonna see today ;w;

  • Learii

    this be a scary game
