Capcom has finally shown us our first real look at the upcoming Resident Evil Village, which means the SDGC crew is eating well tonight. Those of us who were able to play the PS5 exclusive demo weighed in on our experiences, but gaming’s premiere horror series always inspires a lot of discussion. What do we hope Capcom learned from Resident Evil 7, and the recent remakes of Resident Evils 2 and 3? Do some of Village’s new gameplay mechanics foreshadow the long-rumored but never confirmed remake of Resident Evil 4? How do you pronounce “foyer”? And yes, we do acknowledge the sudden massive internet popularity of Resident Evil Village’s new villain, Lady Dimitrescu, formally christened as the Tall Vampire Lady.
It’s not all Resident Evil Village on this week’s show, though. We also highlight some of the games we’re playing and starting, like 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim and Persona 5. More importantly, at the end of the show we take some time to speak candidly about the increased mental health impact of the last year, month, and even week. The intersection of politics, current events, and our own mental health is always a difficult area to talk about, but it’s also impossible to fully avoid. Let’s all work hard to be there for each other when we can, to take care of ourselves as best we can, and push forward together.
