I think what Resi 7 benefited from was having a brand new protagonist as it gave the franchise a more fresh perspective I think which was needed in the franchise.

That worked really well too, it helped that he was an everyman, who had never been in a situation like this before, it helped harken back to the days of old. I wonder if Ethan is more battle hardened in RE8?

I agree Scarlett.

I would imagine so, because the events in his first Game will have probably toughened him up for his second Game I reckon.

And it looks like Ethan and Chris weren't fully seeing eye to eye on one of the trailers too which is interesting to me.

The showcase outside of the Village stuff was utter dirge but Village is looking excellent. RE7 for me, was a top tier RE game, and so I'm excited to see what they do next. I'm planning on getting a PS5 sometime in April so this game will be a Day 1 purchase when it's released a while later.

I think I believe Capcom said at some point that Chris trains Ethan between the games, so that's why Ethan seems a lot more capable this time around.

I imagine by this point he's been recruited into Blue Umbrella, by Chris

I have STILL never finished Resi 7 . I might plough through it for the story on PC, throw an infinite ammo trainer on it or something so I can just blitz through... I was enjoying the story more than the gameplay. I'm not actually the biggest fan of the switch to first person, I wish they'd gone back to Over The Shoulder like the REmakes.

Good luck I've all but given up hope, they're being scalped by shopping bots... it'll be impossible to get one until the market is saturated. Might be OK by April I guess!

Honestly at this point if big PS5 exclusives start coming out I might just pay over the odds . I hate enabling scalpers though.

I might buy one from a scalper then petition it on eBay, put a crack in the plastic on the back or summat (purely cosmetic) and then ask for a partial refund .

*disclaimer: obviously I would NEVER actually commit such fraud.
