So, this game came out a couple days ago. Anyone else playing?

So far the game is pretty dang sweet.

Use this thread to discuss the awesomeness of punchin zombies and maybe get some coop going.

    did you play RE4 Larlar?

    I own it. I couldn't bring myself to play more than maybe ten minutes.

    I think the introduction is probably the "scariest" part, then it just goes headlong into frantic action for the rest of the game (aside from some tense parts near the end)

    True, though I think the village setting as a whole is the "scary" part of the game

    but after that, yeah, it's balls-out action the rest of the way

    So you should totally try it past the beginning Larlar, because horror games fuck me up something fierce (like, I can barely play System Shock 2) and I consider RE4 to be an awesome action game, with a horror motif.

    I've watched a friend play through pretty much the whole game. I know that if I had been playing alone, the part with the alien thing and the tanks of liquid nitrogen would've given me a heart attack. I'm fine with scary games and movies as long as I'm not in control because I perceive it differently. I can disassociate myself from the danger.

    I just can't get past the idea or something scaring me enough that I drop the controller and zombie dogs start eating my character and it's all my fault. I don't want that kind of responsibility.

    Larlar you need to play Dead Space right now

    I got about two hours into deadspace and nearly had a fucking anyeurism because I was so scurred. I've never beaten a survival horror game.

    Anyone else play through the humvee bit yet? Shooting dirt biking zombies has pretty much been the biggest highlight so far. All the explosions made it feel like a movie

    That's it

    I am buying this game right the hell now

    Is it bad that I find SS2 to be by far the scariest game I have ever played?

    Like, I can take Dead Space and all that with no trouble, but SS2 just screws me up bad, even with the old, silly looking models.

    I still consider Metroid 2 for the Game Boy to be one of the scariest games I've ever played.

    I found metroid 2 to be just unnerving as it gets

    just claustrophobic and this utter feeling of isolation

    I loved that game, I've beaten it tons and even do that whole "glitch world" exploring

    oh and the music near the end. Good stuff.

    So I am seeing that this game is pulling an 85% on gamerankings. But all the reviews say it is just RE4++.

    Which seems like exactly what I wanted. So why isn't this game of the year already is what I'm asking

    I need to play through more of this in the next few weeks.

    Gamertag Arsenic7 if you don't have me added already. Had a blast playing with Javen the night of release. I'm only on act 2-3 but I'm totally willing to play with people in any act before that and earn some mad cash.

    I've been finding the game to not be all that scary. Most of the time things jumping up at you has been set up by the fact that you're walking around an eerily empty location... I miss the scary. Having said that I'm finding the game to be fantastic!

    I wasn't scared once in that game, and I'm usually a fucking pussy when it comes to scary stuff. I guess it was the 3rd person perspective or something, because I almost pissed myself thirty times playing Bioshock.

    I killed one of them but the other one would not die, flat out refused.

    So I kinda bailed cause I can't be wasting all my Grenade Launcher rounds on that fuck, Atleast I'm pretty sure I had the launcher at that point, or I was saving shotgun shells and grenades for later.

    Also Grenade Launcher with Acid rounds is the only fucking thing you need

    I'm not to that part but killing the minions that attack you will generally get you more ammo.

    It's either that or fooling them into attacking you and then knifing them a few times.

    So for those who've beaten the game. Just how racist did you find it?

    RE5 is very fun and very pretty but it's not as engaging or lengthy as RE4 was

    Also could they honestly be any more obvious about who the hooded lady with the bird mask is

    It's just the opposite for me. I've played so many freaking FPSs that I can't be scared of them, because no matter what I'm shooting I just instinctually play counter-strike style and kill everything. I guess it's a product of too much familiarity with WASD-mouse.

    best part about the chainsaw dude is that his attacks are pitifully slow so you can just run past him if you get cornered

    my friend and I did that for about fifteen minutes while we tried to figure out how to beat him
