Introduction



Alternate thread title: Resident Evil IV-2

The Evil Within is a survival horror game released in October 2014 to a good bit of critical acclaim, if some technical difficulties. The game draws a lot of comparisons to Resident Evil 4 and that would make sense since both games are directed by Shinji Mikami, the madman also behind the first three Phoenix Wright games and GOD HAND. I had a ball playing Resident Evil 4 so this one should be pretty good too!

The story from what I know follows our heroic protagonist Sebastian Castellanos as he and two other detectives investigate a hospital that has had SPOOKY THINGS happen in the past. It also involves a bit of resource management, dodging traps, stealth, and something called the Agony crossbow. I'm excited! This is also me testing out console recording so there might be some technical difficulties. Otherwise I'm playing on the PS4 and all the videos SHOULD be at 720p60.

Blind?

You got it! There was a request for a blind playthrough and I figured I'd been thinking about playing this game for a while, might as well give it a shot! The only exposure I have to this game before the playthrough is 20 minutes of chapter 1 and the instruction manual! With that in mind, THIS IS A NO BLACK BAR ZONE! Don't spoil this shit for me! I'm not planning on telling you how Arkham Knight ends, do me the same favor! Depending on how the game and the LP hits me I might dive into am doing the DLC as well, but I make no promises just yet! For buying the game I've already got the Fighting Chance Pack which starts me off with a medkit, a few bolts for the Agony crossbow, and a double barreled shotgun. I promptly forget about all of these things for the first three episodes.
