Bethesda Underground Presents: The Evil Within - The American -- Bethesda Softworks, Twitter / YouTube

"As we draw nearer to "The Evil Within's" release date, we're giving you a closer look at the names and faces of Tango Gameworks -- the developers behind Shinji Mikami's return to survival horror.

Meet Tango Gameworks' Level Designer, John Johanas - AKA 'The American'."

For a priestess-figure, they love putting Agnes in risquee/suggestive poses.

I'm pretty sure that's called 'marketing' in some circles.

Death And Return Of Superman Pitch by Max Landis

"In early 2013, Max Landis was approached by DC Comics to work with Greg Pak on a weekly year long series to reboot the death and return of Superman. Due to Max's heavy schedule, and internal decisions about weekly series at DC, the series never came to fruition."

The video is 42 minutes long but is the most fun I've ever had with fan fiction.

Throwing a small warning for anyone trying to avoid spoilers as much as possible:


John is a Game Designer at Tango Gameworks. The video he is referring to is the 3rd one in the playthrough.

Trap System Has Evolved Into The Agony Crossbow -- EvilWithin[dot]net (source)

"When The Evil Within was announced, Traps you use were said to be one of the main pillars of the combat, something that will differentiate this game from others, but it has been quite a while since we've seen anything about it. Turns out that Traps can now be set up, or "fired" from the Agony Crossbow, in the form of Agony Bolts. Meaning that you don't have to place them by hand anymore. Agony Bolts (at least some of them) will stick to any surface you fire at, acting as Proximity Traps. Here's a list of confirmed Agony Bolts so far."


Extract from an Interview made to Shinji Mikami last year by GamesIndustry International:

"People shouldn't expect a Resident Evil experience going in though. "The fear and the triumph of overcoming fears is the same. The different thing is that the Resident Evil series has its fears (zombies, etc.) grounded in science - viruses and stuff - whereas in The Evil Within, the background of those fears are more cerebral, more psychological, like the evil within the human soul. That's the big difference in concept," he said."


Three more extracts from another Interview by 3 News with Mikami:

The Evil Within is a return to what you call "pure" survival horror. Since you first started this genre nearly 20 years ago, why do you think it has gone more into action and more away from straight horror?

"With horror, if you repeat the same scary tricks people get too used to it. So to satisfy customers as you create more and more sequels, we put in more action to try and satisfy a greater number of people. With most game developers it's not intentional, but it naturally just leans more towards action. I myself went down that same path too."

There's a lot of horror references in this game. I've seen what I think are direct references to The Shining, Saw and Session 9 to name but a few. What's your intention with these references?

"With this game I am taking some memorable horror movie scenes and parodying them a little bit. At the E3 demo of The Evil Within you saw lots of examples of those, but there's not too much in the full game. I parodied a game too, but I can't say what game... apologies to Capcom!"

To finish off, what have gamers got to look forward to with The Evil Within?

"Everyone's been missing good, old, classic survival horror and wanting to play it again. You'll feel it's definitely back with this game and I'm sure you're going to enjoy it, I promise."

I've done it. I've beaten Dark Souls.
It's an experience alright.

Part of me is glad that it's over as I've had a lot of frustrating moments going through it.
Another part of me is sad that it's over though as the game, overall, is very fun and rewarding.

Most of the game omitted certain little things is very fair. most of my deaths were my fault and had I played better, I would have lived.
It also does a great job teaching you things that they expect you to apply.

(I think I played the game much slower than most as my final save is at 92 hours - I did do everything though)

You did everything on one playthrough? Seeing and doing everything that there is to do in the Souls series takes around 2 or 3 playthroughs usually per game. And that's when you know what you're doing and also know the environment around you.

Still, as a fan that has put (for normal people's standards) way too much time into the series, I'm glad over time more and more people here has give at least Dark Souls a chance.

^With the engine being reworked for this project I dunno if there's gonna be a significant difference from going to Rage and Wolfenstein: TNO to The Evil Within on PC. About the framerate, Tango has planned TEW to run at 30fps.

A couple of the previews for TEW trashed the game for feeling "old," while many gamers my age have been begging for a new Resident Evil style horror experience now that Capcom has gone off the deep end.  I think TEW will resonate more with older gamers who grew up with the first batch of horror games than those brought up in the wake of Slender.

The wake of Slender uh...

Well you know, a few years ago I read about a game made by Deep Space back in 2003 for PS2 called 'Hungry Ghost'. Along with System Shock 2 these are the only two games of its kind that (I think) have been good for the genre with the rest that came later merely having a few good aspects at best.

I'm giving Alien: Isolation the benefit of the doubt for now since I've heard nothing but good things from it.

Also about RE and Capcom, you might be interested in reading this quote from an Interview done last year to the producer of Resident Evil Revelations:

REVIL: How the success and sales of Resident Evil Revelations on home consoles can influence the future of Resident Evil?

Masachika Kawata: Let's just say that it may already be having all kinds of influence on the future of the series even before we get to that point! (laughs)

59  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: THE EVIL WITHIN (ZWEI) on: July 18, 2014, 02:14:03 PM
^I'm not a fan of First-person horror for how shallow it's approach to horror usually is. That, and I don't like the removal of combat at all.

And comparing Alien: Isolation with TEW is a bit weird because both are going for completely different things as far as I've seen. And if anything, TEW is more of a risk nowadays than Alien: Isolation for being in a sub-genre that has been trending for a few years now.

^That was 10 years ago now.

Justin has won good places in 3rd Strike tournaments in the past, and I didn't notice this before for whatever reason but he also did really good in Super Street Fighter IV tournaments. He has always been one of the most notable Marvel players for me though.

About Daigo I've noticed over the years that the way he plays Street Fighter is like a machine. Is really boring once you know part of the way he plays after seeing hours of his matches in the Street Fighter series, but the guy is undeniably good and has been able to do some amazing moves.

However, from the players that make a name for themselves with 3rd Strike I've seen much more amazing matches from other Japanese players. Some of the things people over there did with Q, Urien, Ibuki, Makoto and Yun Lee were insane and end up getting me interested in the fighting game scene much more.
