Why RE7 isn’t an FPS

I keep seeing people say that RE7 is just a bad FPS, so I’ll clarify why it’s NOT an FPS:

The focus of the game is not to shoot guns, but to survive in a creepy house. Guns are not the main lop point of the game! There are many other things. Saying it’s an FPS because you use guns in a first person perspective is like saying Tekken is a TPS since it’s third person and some characters have guns, or that Devil May Cry is a Platformer because you can jump to other heights. You can shoot guns, but this game is not a game where you have to shoot guns. There’s also stealth and survival and fighting and knives in there, you idiots!

There is limited ammo, so it is not an action game, and shooters are action games. There is slow gameplay, restricting pow…

Movie news (minor)

A new post by Hollywood insider Daniel Richtman suggests Screen Gems is developing a new Resident Evil film. Screen Gems was the financier of Apocalypse through to The Final Chapter, and distributed the 2002 Resident Evil film and Welcome to Raccoon City (financed independently). Richtman was behind several movie leaks such as trailer announcements and the leak of the Welcome to Raccoon City casting sheet.

Both Screen Gems and Constantin Film (rights holders) have had internal shake-ups over the past year, so how consistent their plans have been since the original declaration of "multiple projects" in October 2022 is doubtful.

The Keeper's Diary: A Biohazard Story

The Keeper's Diary: A Biohazard Story is a short film inspired by the origins of a titular researcher in the mansion before and during the events of original game and its 2002 remake. It serves as "a retelling of the diary of the same name occurred in the original game."

Some casts from the original game returned to the film including Charlie Kraslavsky, who originally appeared in live action cutscenes of the original game as Chris Redfield, serves his different role as a titular researcher in the short film.

The many unlicensed escape rooms

Hey guys, Forerunner here! For early 2024 I'm focusing on expanding our coverage on promotional events such as haunted house attractions and escape rooms. This week however we've also stumbled upon what appear to be a series of unlicensed events in Europe and the United States. As they're not official we'll avoid having articles covering them, but we'll talk about them here. Due to their nature, I should also point out that we can't confirm if they look like what their promotional images say. Regardless, if you live near one of the locations, give them a look!.

The Louisiana Mystery House

Hello there, folks. Today we have something interesting. We've started up a new WikiProject to find the identity of what we're calling the "Mystery House".

The rundown?
In early 2014 the Resident Evil 7: Biohazard dev team decided they wanted to draw inspiration from the original Resident Evil, but drawing from the Southern Gothic horror genre. Early concept art for the Baker family's Plantation was rudimentary and drew from images of Deep South mansions taken from Google Images. To make sure they had the right design, two separate trips to Louisiana were made in the Spring - an initial survey to get the environment right and prove it could be 'scary', and a follow-up to get the right textures for the setting.

This mansion, pictured, appears to …

Theory: How the War on Terror changed Resident Evil 4

Hey guys, Forerunner here. Today I want to talk about the changing development of Shinji Mikami's Resident Evil 4, how planned content was changed in the final version, and a theory as to why that happened.

Concept art found in Resident Evil Archives II sets the Salazar family as being established in the 15th or 16th century. It was during this time that Reconquista was completed with the last of the Muslim states in Iberia being conquered by their Christian rivals led by the Catholic Monarchs King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella. Incidentally, there is a King and Queen puzzle. An analysis of the trial version done by Project Umbrella gives us further insight into some cut files.

Hey guys, Forerunner here. While going through old website archives, I happened upon an age-old hoax that took over the internet in 2011.

Theropod (Giganotosaurus)

Simmons' second mutation seems to have the basic shape of a dinosaur similar to a giganotosaurus. The body is covered with many boney plates with patches of exposed muscle tissue scattered across the body. The musculature is quite dense, and its behavior is instinctual instead of rational. His driving force is to devour his enemies.

In this form, Simmons relies solely on brute strength and has no other outstanding abilities. His armoured body is invulnerable to small arms and only high explosives and heavy weapons can cause any significant damage. Inside the creature's mouth is a large orange-coloured eye that serves as a weak spot - the exposed sections of flesh on its back are also vulnerable, but the players will have to destroy the pro…

  • Capcom provided ScreenGems with design blueprints for the Spencer Mansion and the Raccoon Police Station. They also provided templates for the artwork that would go on the walls.
  • The script will give equal focus to Jill, Leon, Claire, Chris and Wesker - Roberts prefers an ensemble rather than fan favourites cameoing in their own movie.

Staff Blog: I Don't Know What to Edit

Hey there, Forerunner here. A few weeks back, we did a Twitter poll asking regular readers who don't contribute why they don't. A significant number answered that they simply do not know WHAT to edit.
