My Resident Evil Village Experience starts with a disclaimer. What you’re about to read in this article is not a review in any classical sense. If you’re looking for a classic and well-made review of RE Village, then you should definitely check out my colleague’s review. The Italian Guy made a fantastic review just a few months ago.
Some Of My Previous Resident Evil Village Experience
Well, I can’t say that I didn’t already touch on the game. In my own way anyway. I already wrote about a bunch of terrifying gothic movies to watch, while playing the game (check out that article here). And I already named some of my favorite female vampire characters. You know in honor of Lady Dimitrescu. The baddie in residence of course. But if you care to look back at a proper and very fabulous review of the game, feel free to jump right in. I’ll leave The Italian Guy’s Review here for you.
Resident Evil Village Experience At IndieGala
OK, first thing first. Before I could go on with this article I must mention, that we do have Resident Evil Village available for purchase here at IndieGala. But not only that! It’s currently on sale, along with plenty of of the other games in the series. Resident Evil 2? Yup, it’s available here and also on sale. So are Resident Evil 3, 4, 5, 6, 7… You know just click here and take your pick. We’ve got them all and they’re all in one place.
Ok back to the game. Resident Evil Village.
Capcom’s sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (available here) will take Ethan Winters to an Eastern-European village to find his kidnapped daughter Rose. The village is filled with mutants, werewolves, gargoyles and whatnot, but he needs to muscle through in order to find Rose. His horrifying journey will take him to through that scary village, and plenty of even scarier bosses. I’ll tell you about some of my favorites a bit later. First and foremost, let me just mention, how I love this game. I know, I know. I haven’t had the chance to tackle the RE series before. Well in my Filmaholic Gamer Reviews anyway. So, I’m glad I’m starting with RE8 and let’s not waste any time. I have a lot of things to mention here. Here I goooo.
Time Well Spent My Friends
Thankfully the weather has cooled down this week (it’s below 35 degrees Celsius so that counts) and because of that, I’ve been able to devoir the game during the daytime. Not just at night like a vampire. You know… When I don’t have to crank up my AC, and when I’m not boiling in my own sweat. But yeah. I loved so many things about RE Village. From the animated Tim Burton-like intro to the final showdown with Mother Miranda. But I’m getting ahead of myself. I’m always a sucker for gothic horror, and this is why I chose RE8. Not to mention, it’s scary and exciting at the same time. And I even loved most of the puzzles as well, which is awesome.
But you probably know why I picked RE8. Because of the one and only. Lady Alcina Dimitrescu. Ok, her daughters too, but mostly her. Oh, how I wish there’d be more of her in this game. Why is so presence so short? Come on! There were countless memes about her. There was a big hoopla about her, just a few months ago. I need more of her Capcom! She’s striking, voluptuous and imposing. Not to mention she’s like 9 feet tall! But what I also loved about her was her castle. Beautiful, gothic and intriguing. Look, I love exploration in video games, and her castle allowed me to do that. But in enclosed spaces and with barely any light in them. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciated it nonetheless.
Fantastically Scary Set Pieces
And characters too. Don’t think that Lady Dimitrescu and her long fingernails is the only scary boss here. Oh no. There is a handful of them here. Donna Beneviento is a particularly frightening one, and so is Uriaș strӑjer. Heisenberg… Not so much. Of course, I should also mention that I deployed the help of my very patient and very helpful Martin. He was a dear (and a true life-saver) and Googled some of the solutions to my problems (in some of the tricky parts). But yeah. You can safely assume that some parts of RE Village took me a lot more time. Way more than I originally anticipated, but hey. It’s a learning experience for me. Don’t judge. I did my best.
Mother Miranda Is The Mother Of All Evil?
Yes, the scary, creepy characters in RE8 are a dime a dozen. Don’t even get me started on that Giant baby monster boss creature. I had nightmares for three days straight because of that baby monster. But I’m all about Mother Miranda now. I came for Lady D, but I stayed because of Miranda. She’s one evil lady, let me tell ya. And yes. Even her outfit is scary. Yeah. Fighting her took me the most time and effort, but hey. I learned a few things along the way. For instance, I should nominate Ethan for the Father of The Year award. Seriously, the man went through soooo much just to save his daughter. He’s a fantastic hero of this game series, and let me just say. One hell of a dad.
My Resident Evil Village Experience Is Great!
I loved it for sure. It has interesting characters, fascinating (yet terrifying) villains. In addition to everything else, there’s the fantastic ominous locations and creepy plot in the center of the story. I also continued with my strike of playing the new (give or take) installments, as opposed to the starting points in the series. Hey, I did that with Dark Souls 2, Borderlands 3 and now with RE8. I’m doing everything backward, but I don’t care. I had so much fun with this game. It’s scary AF but worth it. What’s your take on Resident Evil Village? Let me know in the comment section. I’d love to know all about it.
