Not sure how I feel about the DLC. I like the idea for playing Rose, but I dunno about it taking place in some kind of alternate "shadow realm." It could end up being cool, though. I don't really care about mercenaries, so that's lost on me. Playing in 3rd person might be fun. Especially with almost all of the other titles going that route. It'll be interesting to see what they charge for it.

Meh still waiting for the return of the real resident evil.. With all the horror etc.. I think re 9 is going back to the roots hoping it's 3rd person like re2r. Haven't played village yet bc just isn't re anymore lol
Wut? RE 7 & 8 was the return to horror.

I was confused, too. Did we forget RE5 and RE6?
RE5 and 6 are action games with a horror aesthetic

RE:Village is a fair bit more action oriented than RE7-----which makes it more like RE4, where it waivers between action and more straightforward horror segments.

I never not felt the horror in RE4. RE5 was a huge departure from the baseline that RE4 set. While some of the body horror was unsettling it never committed to being a horror game unlike RE4.

I feel like all of them have horror elements (mainly zombies, obviously), they just became more about fighting hordes rather than jump scares and surprises. That culminated with 5 and especially 6, which was pretty much a straight action game with supernatural elements. 7 reversed course and was a throwback to the earlier games. Village was a blend of those and 4. "Survival horror" vs. "Action horror" or something like that.

I meant more like RE2 remake... Re village had werewolves and other strange things that were never in re games lol.. I only played the demo so I don't know if it's good or true to re games or not..

4 was like a balance if horror and action. 5 & 6 we're just pure action games. I find 7 was very much towards horror more so then the older games. 8 was more action the 7 but definitely more on the horror side still.

I've only played RE7, RE2 Remake, RE3 Remake, and RE8 Village in that order.

Of those games RE7 was straight up horror with some puzzles. At the end it did tilt more towards combat but overall the game was a horror game first.

RE2 remake was puzzle based, with some horror elements and a few jump scares.

RE3 remake was similar, but the puzzles seemed a bit more straight forward. Might have to do with a lot of cut content from the original game.

RE8 Village was much more action oriented. Only one part of the game was really scary. The change from mostly zombies/monsters to intelligent, talking beings took away much of the horror. Of course it had a scarcity of ammunition thing going on and monsters so it had a horror setting, but the game itself wasn't scary.

It sounds like RE4 is more like Village?

As for this DLC I will play it. Took a long time though. I thought the game was done by this point.

Count me in for Village DLC. RE7 was my first in the series, and I loved it. Village was even better as I'm basically a FPS gamer at heart. These two games were very well done. Can't wait for more!

Some devs include their own DRM on top of Denuvo to make their exe's harder to bypass.
Or, as its known more colloquially...

Started Village a while back but haven't gone back to it for a while though. Was thinking about going through all the RE games starting from the first one and do them in order. (Have about half of them already) Good idea?

I did that right after the RE3 remake came out. I played through them all in order, but with the remakes and 2 and 3 in place of the originals. 1 is still going to feel really old even though it was upgraded to be a little more modern. Neat story, but I never liked playing that one. After the remakes of 2 and 3, you'll have to adjust a little bit to 4. It's not that dated, but the controls and camera are a bit different. 5's no problem after 4. 6, too. 6 actually plays similarly to the remasters of 2 and 3 although melee is a huge part of the game. 7 and Village are still very modern games, although they'll feel very different after playing 6.

I think so. For story reasons I'd recommend playing RE0HD after REmake HD. Playing RE4HD after RE3make will be jarring, though. The tank controls take some time to get used to on a keyboard. I highly recommend getting the RE4HD Project textures to play through it. Both RE5 and RE6 still hold up on PC, even though Capcom downgraded the PC version of RE5 some time ago.

Bit the bullet and got the missing main games today. (Got #1-8 now, plus RE: Resistance, RE: Revelations 1/2 and Re:Verse) ;)) Read that most of the main numbered games are good if you just want the main storyline and the rest just add backstory and such in most cases. Any info on the add-on games that i should get would be appreciated.

The main games cover the vast majority of the story. I don't think Code Veronica ever got a PC port and it's one of the few spinoff titles that actually had a lot of story elements to it. The main numbered games recap some of it and you can always watch YouTube videos that go over the whole chabang. There are a bunch of long-ass 2-hour videos that get pretty granular, but there are also 10-30 minute videos that offer more than enough info to get you caught up.

Thanks! Yeah, looked up the Code Veronica one, but think it only ever went to consoles so far.

I think you can stream Code: Veronica X on PC with PlayStation Plus Premium. There is also the emulation route. My local vintage game stores sell it for around $20-40 if you want to get a copy to make a disc image from.

As good as the remake of 4 is probably going to be...Code Veronica was in far more desperate need of a remake. Especially due to lacking a native PC port.
