There’s a lot that you probably do know about Resident Evil 2. There’s a lot that you might not know about the gory sequel as well. Here’s a look at twenty terrifying trivia facts about Resident Evil 2.
Monster Hunter: World isn’t going to hold your hand for very long when it introduces its core elements to newcomers. This is still very much a game built on legacy and entries of the past, that refuses to compromise all of that effort in favour of more accessible gameplay.
With staples like the persistent timer and sporadic saves gone, the urgency and dread is gone – allowing Dead Rising to be the silly, absurd bit of zombie-slaying mayhem it always wanted to be. Purists may scoff, but there’s no denying that it’s fun – and just about the best Christmas game in existence.
Look, nobody was expecting the Switch to be as successful – both critically and commercially – as it has been. Just about everybody who owns a Switch – particularly if they were previously naysayers – thinks the machine is made of magic, and wants every game available on the little system that could.
Whatever happened to Devil May Cry though? After a fantastic fourth core game (the best in the series, come at me bros) and an amazing reimagining from western developer Ninja Theory (again, come at me baby-bros who don’t appreciate genius), Devil May Cry entered the wildlands of an uncertain future. Dante and his crew were nowhere to be seen, as the years ticked by and a new generation of consoles were born. Clearly, the time for a new Devil May Cry is now. Good timing too then, as it appears that a ton of details on the next game have leaked.
Loot boxes are most likely here to stay for the foreseeable future however, with most publishers being more interested in games being platforms that encourage fans to spend on random rewards. It’s an idea which can easily be implemented in any game, but its potential seems to be tailor-made for RPGs whose entire goal is giving players the tools to grow stronger during the course of an adventure. RPGs like the upcoming Monster Hunter World. Fortunately, it seems like Capcom’s next big thing is bucking that trend.
