SDCC 2018: Resident Evil 2 Demo

Hey, everyone! It’s Jon of the Gamer Heroes podcast! I just got back from an incredible weekend at San Diego Comic Con. One thing I wanted to share with you was my experience playing the brand new Resident Evil 2 remastered demo at the convention! I recorded a little clip with my initial thoughts and will probably talk more about it on next week’s episode of Gamer Heroes, so don’t miss that!

First up, I want to share my thoughts on the demo but make sure to check out below for some photos from the set they put together. They basically built a little Raccoon City at SDCC, pretty crazy.

Next up are the photos I talked about. I hope you enjoy them!

GH37 – Games in Need of a Sequel

Pennywise Returns to Derry

Stephen King’s classic finally hits the big screen and we’re here to talk about… well, IT! We talk about the new Pennywise and the universe he lives in while comparing and contrasting to the original book as well as the 1990 TV mini-series that starred Tim Curry.

After a short break from The Dark Tower, we return to Stephen King’s macro-verse to the town of Derry in the late 1980’s with one of the kids from Stranger Things!

We start things off with some news, specifically Star Wars, and then provide our spoiler-free thoughts before diving into the details. Did the new Pennywise live up to the hype of Tim Curry? Listen in!

GH24: Castlevania & the Overwatch League

Alien: Covenant Spoiler-free Review

The next installment in the Alien franchise is here. This time Ridley Scott is admitting upfront that it is, in fact, an Alien movie. With that said, if you have not seen Prometheus, I highly recommend watching it before seeing Alien: Covenant. Without spoiling too much from Prometheus, Michael Fassbender’s character David, is a very important part of Alien: Covenant and his motivations are directly tied into the events of Prometheus.

Now, moving on to Alien: Covenant, it’s an Alien movie…. kind of. I say “kind of” because it still sits firmly in the world that Prometheus created, focusing on the tone and overarching plot of that film. Sure, we have a new crew, a new mission, but at the end of the day, it’s the same shtick.

There is a lot to like about Alien: Covenant and if you love monster movies, it’ll be an enjoyable experience for you. With that said, if you are looking for a classic Alien movie that brings you back to Sigourney Weaver’s era, this is not going to fulfill your wishes.

Alien Coventant poster 2

The cast is fine. It features Katherine Waterston (Fantastic Beats and Where to Find Them), Bill Crudup (Watchmen), and Danny McBride (Pineapple Express), with Michael Fassbender playing two different characters, David from Prometheus and Walter, the Covenant’s android. They all do a good job with what they are given but as usual, Fassbender steals the show, much as he did in Prometheus and much as he has done in the more recent X-Men films. Everyone else is just along for the ride, in some cases literally.

The story is pretty interesting and has a lot of solid horror movie moments that Prometheus definitely lacked. We spend a lot of time off the ship which, while similar to Prometheus, is still very different from the original Alien Quadrilogy movies. Ridley Scott clearly is trying to pave a path between Prometheus, a movie he was adamant was not an Alien movie, and the original Alien. So, I expect at least one if not two more films before we catch back up to Ripley.

Alien Coventant poster 3

The special effects are inconsistent at best. The ships and technology look amazing and are great updates to the original films while not directly copying Prometheus. The bridge set, the corridors, etc. are all finely detailed and just really well done. The aliens and major action sequences leave much to be desired. The aliens are inconsistent in size, amorphous in shape, and deal damage convenient to whatever needs to happen in a particular scene. When a green\blue screens are used it’s painfully obvious that the backgrounds are fake. With that said, scenes where Fassbender is interacting with himself are very well done and incredibly convincing.

Alien Coventant poster

Overall, it’s a decent Alien movie. You can see my specific rating below. It expands on the universe. The movie provides some very cool and dark explanations for events but at the same time does not stand up to the quality of the original two films when it comes to special effects, suspense, or action. Ridley Scott has tried twice to replace Sigourney Weaver’s Ripley and has clearly failed to do so both times.  That’s about as much detail as I can go into without spoiling the movie, so if you’d like to know more, I’ll provide an in-depth take in an upcoming ranking of the Alien franchise films.

GH04: Resident Evil & Mobile Gaming

Resident Evil returns to the console world with Resident Evil 7 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We talk the new aspects this game brings to the Resident Evil video game franchise and why that might not be such a good thing. Then we break off to discuss mobile gaming and how it’s different from handheld gaming. We talk some common mobile game tactics like freemium and pay-to-win, plus some diamonds in the rough to help you through that long car ride. While we hit the big names like Dungeon Keeper, Pokemon Go, and Super Mario Run, we talk about some lesser known titles like the iOS exclusive Goblin Sword and the classic cow jumping game, Abduction!
