Resident Evil 0 HD Release Date + Wesker Mode Announced

The Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster has been given a January 19th release date. Not only that, Capcom has announced that a physical release for Zero bundled with the HD REmake remaster is planned as well. You’ll be able to get both games in the Resident Evil Origins Collection! This is especially awesome because the U.S. did not see a disc release for the RE1 remaster, so now we’ll get both!

The game will be available by itself digitally as well.

There will also be a completely new mode where you can play as Wesker and Rebecca. I have no idea where this fits in time-wise into the series, as Uroboros was introduced in RE5 and Zero takes place… well, its the first major events in the series. It’s the series prequel.

Until Dawn

Until Dawn was one of my most anticipated games of this year, I love the horror genre, and this seemed like it would be a fun mix of horror movie and game. Now that it’s finally been out for a few days and I have completed my first play-through, I am excited that it lived up to the high expectations I had. Until Dawn is a cinematic experience following 8 young adults who have returned to a cabin one year after two of their friends go missing. It uses quick time events to let you progress through the story making choices in paths and options presented to you along with way. (Think: choose your own adventure).11942338_10153513057183864_1709227256299915220_o

There is also butterfly effect system in place that will highlight and reflect in-game, the effects of the paths you take and choices you make along the way. Did you choose to be mean or snarky to another character at some point, whilst playing as one of the other main friends? They may be less helpful to said ‘friend’ later on, pushing them out-of-the-way to save themselves, instead of warning them of incoming dangers. I want to stay away from getting deeper into any story elements, as I do not want to spoil any major plot points of the game (yet), so I will go on about some of my other favorite parts of the game: The camera angles and classic use of horror movie tropes & clichés.

Typically jump scares aren’t the most welcomed scare in movies, especially recently, but they really work here in creating that classic horror movie feel. How else would you create something inspired by so many of our favorite teen scream movies without including some of the clichés that have been seen along the way?

The cast was well acted, and each character has their own very different personality and attributes. Some start off braver than others, but you can change that by having them trying to protect others. This kind of stuff really helps with developing an attachment to these characters,  you care about what happens to them. Their actions reflect the choices you’ve made for them, and if they die because of the result of your choices (or lack of choice), there is no restarting that chapter, there is no reviving that character, they are gone for good, and you’re most likely going to feel sad/sorry about that. 11931000_10153513057248864_1955757746559299921_o

Or maybe you’ve got a heart of ice and are not sad at all, and you are playing through just to watch all the horrible bloody ways they could die. Nobody gets to live in your horror movie!

But seriously, you can see their emotions. Look at how terrified Mike looks. He’s crouched, and visibly frowning because he is scared but pushing himself to proceed.

I feel for you Mike, I hope you made it out of there buddy.

 I completed my first play through of Until Dawn the other day, and have already started on a 2nd run in an effort to save a few of the friends that did not make it the first go around. I look forward to finding the clues I did not get along the way, and seeing what possible changes I’ll see in the story. If you are a fan of the horror genre check out Until Dawn. It’s got beautiful visuals, fun scares, plus lots of unlockables and replayability.

I’ll be posting some more spoiler-ey stuff on Until Dawn in the near future, as I am noticing some new and interesting things on my 2nd go.
