The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (17 minutes ago)
the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (19 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (20 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (22 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (22 minutes ago)
Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (23 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (24 minutes ago)
