I think I meant to get RE4 instead of SH4.

I also meant to order a Whopper WITH Cheese, not WITHOUT, dammit.

WHich res evil game is the one where that THING drops out of the ceiling? That's some fucked up shit.

That whole scene is pretty neat, when you see it flitter past the window just before you enter the room/corridor area.

The thing about Fear is that it bounces between creepy j-horror thing

(wandering around an abandoned and occasionally bloody warehouse/industrial complex with random hallicination/flashback/trip-out sequences, and a creepier Wednesday Addams following you)

and intense, hyperviolent firefights

(Half Life-style)

thirteen years pass...

Has anyone played the demo of Beware yet? It's been out for a while, the game is still in development from what I can tell. It looks like the type of horror game I would enjoy, a driving based horror game.

That is a cool idea. It's like a game version of that insane Russian dash cam movie "Road Movie."

I love the lighting, will give it a thorough test when I get home later.

I'd always thought about how to make a game from the Duel movie, but couldn't see how it would have any lasting appeal.

(but then I think that about zombie games and that genre seems to manage just fine)

I can see a Duel-type game as survival horror that necessitates getting from point a to point b. Like, the longer you stay in one place and scavenge and live or build and defend or whatever the more danger you are in, but escaping to a new location has its own challenges. Like evil trucks.

is there a video of it? I couldn't see one on the link

This was where I was introduced to it:

This is why I don't design games I would never have thought of that.

when you wrote 'Duel', for a minute I thought you meant 'Joust'!

A thing that happened in the 13-year delay: Amnesia (also Alien:Isolation)

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 12 December 2019 11:43 (two months ago) link

What I love about the Alien in "Isolation" is that (like the baddie in Resident Evil 2?) it can't really be fought or escaped, it's just this impervious force with a clever AI gumming up the works. Sometimes the rest of "Isolation" is so intense and stressful that you forget all about the Alien! And then it kills you.
