Hey peoples, welcome to a brand new series! For a change, I fancied a modern game so we're heading into Resident Evil 7! This won't be a blind series since I've played through the game once (who wouldn't be cautious after Resi 6?).

For those not in the know, this is a survival horror game which tries to go back to the classic Resident Evil roots but with a very modern twist on things. There are huge differences to what we know about resi but there are tonnes of similarities, especially if you compare it to the remake of resi 1. I'll try and point those out as we go :). I won't say anymore since I really hate spoilers and I'm sure others do too.

Of course, this game wasn't made by me. It was made/developed by/published by: Capcom, Havok, Simplygon and the guys behind the RE Engine...engine. All that is done by me during this series is the playing, commentary and post-editing :).

Thanks for watching! I hope you look forward to what's to come 'cause this is a corker of a game, I promise :s.

A couple of links coming. If you want to see the opening (which does a very good job of portraying the type of vibe that we're to expect in the game):Here's the playlist on Youtube too, if you want the full up-to-date list of videos as we go along:
P.S.
The aim is for this to be a daily let's play! Now and again something is bound to crop up to make me have to skip a day though. I'll keep you updated on my Twitter, which you can find here: https://twitter.com/greenyxii

Thanks again! :)

Episode 1 - To Sunny Louisiana!

https://youtu.be/ZqJEv2W6j90


Hey peoples, we're finally starting Resi 7! It turns out that Ethan's wife went missing 3 years ago and he's only now had contact off her via a video! So, as Ethan, we're heading on over to sunny Louisiana to pick her up! What could possibly go wrong? ;)

Well...we're entering the guest house today and we actually do find Mia but...things aren't gonna go according to plan, are they? :s

We also play through the "derelict house footage" video tape that was in the demo; it's exactly the same as then so if you want to skip that little section, I'd completely understand. I won't be playing through that video ever again anyways after the amount of times I played through it in the demo, trying to find the different endings lol.

Thanks for watching! See you again in a wee bit when we see what Mia has in store for us :).

Episode 2 - Grub's Up!

https://youtu.be/uX3JQXEaA_I


Hey peoples, we're back in the Guest House today! There's a tonne going on here and Mia seems to be at the root of our problems right now :s. Um, don't worry about Ethan's hand. It'll be fine.

In fact, once the guest house is all done, including the boss, we make it to my personal favourite area of the game: the Main House! This is where we get to meet the Baker family and see the ever-famous dinner table scene that was used in all the promo artwork and trailers. It's such a solid introduction to the villains of the game...I love it :).

Thanks for watching! We'll be seeing what we need to do after the laundry room next time and gee whizz! It's gonna mean trouble for someone :s.

Episode 3 - The Garage Depths

https://youtu.be/5w7KDSIs-5U


Now if I were Jack, where would I put my car keys? :/

Hey peoples! Today we're meeting a policeman! Maybe he can save us? Well, we take on Jack as a boss too instead of as an invincible stalker (though there's some of that too lol). Not so bad really :).

We also start the hunt for the 3 dog heads in order to escape the mansion through the front door, but after seeing Marguerite out by the caravan outside, maybe it's not safe wherever we go? :s

Thanks for watching! With handgun in...hand, we've got a fair bit more to explore to find the toughest dog head. Oh yes... :D

Episode 4 - Hunter Of Shadows

https://youtu.be/n9byiLeoBRg


Hey peoples, we're back with the 2nd video tape that we skipped over earlier: "Mia"! This one shows off just why Marguerite is just as scary as Jack...poor Mia :(.

Other than that, we make a bit more progress and find an inventive use for a wooden statue. Also, the house has many walls that turn into many corridors. So much fun to explore! ;)

Thanks for watching! see you next time when we head down into the deep, dark basement :s.

P.S. The molded are a really creepy enemy type! We'll find out why they're called that and how they're made later in the game more than now, typical Resi monster explanation style :).

Episode 5 - Baking In The Basement

https://youtu.be/KkdfQz9gTEg


Hey there folks, we're heading into the darkness of the Baker family basement today...and it has more than just rats in it :s. In fact, there seem to be mouldy people wandering around; the different variations are great to see but the one might as well be a miniboss with just our trusty handgun and pocket knife! :/ There's plenty more going on down there but I won't spoil the boss ;).

With dog's head in tow, we're out of the mansion! The yard and caravan are a breath of fresh air; they hide a way to upgrade your shotty too! :D

Thanks for watching! We're heading onto a whole new location next time for a bit of a break from the mansion. Maybe it'll be a safe haven after Ethan's bit of bad luck? :eek:

Episode 6 - Marguerite's Playhouse

https://youtu.be/pLRl6Ur8ykU


Hey peoples! With Jack off our backs, it's time for Marguerite to have her time to shine! The Old House is where we need to search in order to find the cure for the infection for our Mia (oh and Zoe lol).

I love the look of this place! It reminds me quite a bit of that house outside the main mansion in Resi 1. Very buggy and different from the main mansion :). You can actually get through this place without the flamethrower (burner...) and I think I will every playthrough after this. The nests go down in a few shotty shots anyways ha :).

Thanks for watching! With the staple crank at hand, along with the crow key, we can now go up to the 2nd floor of the old house. Secrets are coming! :D

P.S.
We also go for another hidden trophy along the way. Might as well, right? ;)

Episode 7 - Motherly Mutations!

https://youtu.be/p8BfoEcr2kA


Hey folks, if you're one of those people who just wishes Marguerite would buzz off, then this is the part of the game for you! We fight her as two separate bosses and see her in a whole new light! I love how she looks in her mutated form and how creepily she pulls that lantern towards herself down in the hole :s.

Other than that, we check out the greenhouse (actually that's still a part of the old house, I guess). You can see how she would experiment in this area, since she loves a bit of gardening, I can tell! ;)

Thanks for watching! We'll be wrapping up the mansion next time; just because Jack isn't there doesn't mean there's nothing to be afraid of 0_0.

P.S. There's also some weird stuff going on in the 2nd floor of the old house. I'm not entirely sure who that is :/.

Episode 8 - Happy Birthday!

https://youtu.be/lOjRU3IBYm8


Hey there folks, Yawn the snake may not be in the attic, but we do get to learn a bit about Lucas when he was a but a wee lad! Along with this, we check out all of the rest of the mansion, including a bit more of the basement, and we play through the 3rd video tape: Happy Birthday! This is my favourite one and has you solving key item puzzles in some form of room escape game! I love it so much :).

That's it actually lmao. Loads of progress but I summed it up a bit too vaguely maybe :s. Thanks for watching! See you next time when we head into Lucas' section of the game; it's something a wee bit different from what we've seen so far ;).

P.S. I found out online what that wooden axe does. Never used it during my first playthrough :/. I still don't know what to do with the model shotgun either.

Episode 9 - I Want To Play A Game

https://youtu.be/6guf6s-PeaQ


Hey there folks, today we're taking on a boomer! Well, maybe not but it looks and acts like one. Only these guys have much more health and stuff :s. Anyways, that's the barn fight for ya! Lucas' trap section has all of these sorts of weird things going on; it kind of reminds me of Saw and you're the victim trying to escape. It's a far cry from what we've learnt to expect from Resi 7 but it's a nice change of pace. We'll be going back to what we had before soon enough anyways...actually, in the next episode lol.

By the way, if you didn't collect everything from the mansion and old house, do it before going into Lucas' section via the 2 keycards. There ain't no turning back soon ;).

Also, I love how they incorporate the happy birthday video tape into the main game. Can you actually escape from this room escape game or will you die like the guy in the vid? 0_0

I also love how one of the random codes for the number pad is 1408, which is probably a reference to one of Stephen King's best films: 1408! The short story wasn't that great since it's way too...short *cough*. I recommend the film though! (Stephen King fan lol).

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit to see what direction the game turns next! New location incoming! :lew:

Episode 10 - A Rocky Relation Ship

https://youtu.be/hsWrgbRYu9M


Hey there folks, there's a very important choice in this episode that affects your ending. But who would you choose to save? Your wife or the person who made the cure for the infection in the first place? Morals and decisions :sad3:.

Other than that, we take on the last of the Baker family in a boss fight against Jack. He's got...nice eyes :/. I love this boss fight :grin:.

Finally, we check out the start of the next location as someone other than Ethan! Who saw that character change coming ha.

Thanks for watching! See you in a wee bit when we go for more of the ship and maybe see what makes our little Eveline tick. She ain't no lovable Annie! ;)

P.S. Whatever happened to Lucas? He seems to vanish after this point with no death or any notes pointing towards...anything related to him. I'd love to know in the comments if you found something I didn't :s.

Episode 11 - Mia's True Colours

https://youtu.be/2xie6sw2C4U


Hey folks, have you wondered what secrets Mia may be hiding? No? Well...here they are anyway lmao :wacky:. There's plenty to explore when it comes to the Annabelle, but for today we're mostly checking out the 4th and final video tape; it's the only compulsory one and really shows off a good bit of background information on our lovely Mia Winters. I'll leave all that up to you to find out for yourselves :).

Thanks for watching! See you next time for...probably the rest of the ship :).

Episode 12 - Now Disembarking The Annabelle!

https://youtu.be/p-eprJPd8m8


Hey folks, it's about time for us to wrap up the Annabelle and start the next location, huh? With that said, this episode is all about Mia attempting to save Ethan and actually not doing a bad job of it considering she's a frail female character lmao. Job well done, Ms Winters ;). There's actually a surprise at the end of the ship that I didn't know about since I chose the other ending last time; very happy to see such a major change to the game :).

The swamp is so short but it's nice to have an area like that now and again. It didn't overstay its welcome and it was actually pretty pleasant for, you know, a swamp ha.

Thanks for watching, peoples! See you next time for the start of the last proper area of the game! :)

Episode 13 - That Salt Of Mine

https://youtu.be/2kGfyCDQWYI


Hey peoples, we're entering the last major area today and Capcom decided to remove the horror element for this part. Since it's really short though, having an action area doesn't bother me in the slightest; Resi has always been about small amounts of action here and there after all.

We also find the lab of the game which turns out to be a room or two this time around. It gives a tonne of information though and gives you the ultimate weapon against children like Eveline: the E-Necrotoxin! :D

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit for the last episode of the main game! :)

P.S. That last bit of the chase with the 2 fat molded is a right nightmare! It's especially bad on Madhouse mode where they don't move quite as slow as things that big should...lol.

Episode 14 - Revelations

https://youtu.be/frM-dwHldVI


Hey folks, it's finally time for us to take on Eveline and wrap this nightmare up once and for all! Assuming the DLC doesn't have some surprises in store for us that is :s. She's not a bad boss but it's a bit easy really. I wonder what you'd do if you didn't have any ammo though?

We also check out the credits and get to see an old fan favourite from the resi series! And they said there weren't any traditional resi characters in this game ;).

Finally, I give a few of my thoughts on the game and what I wonder about the future of the resi series.

Thanks for watching folks! There's still plenty more of this series to go, with DLC and weird technical things going on. You'll see lol :/. See you in a bit! :)

Episode 15 - Ethan Must Die

https://youtu.be/vZ7HH_oAWYk


Hey peoples, just a bit of playing around with the "Ethan Must Die" DLC minigame today! That's what we'll be doing from now on actually: DLC. I wanted to start with something from Banned Footage but my PS4 crashed every time the cinematic ended so...let's just try this :).

As for first impressions: it's not something I would probably return to. It's impossibly hard and I'm not into these sorts of games where you have to repeatedly die to learn the best route. Still, that's a damn nice red sky 0_0.

Thanks for watching! Give me a shout if you have beaten this. It takes some skills to do it, by the seems of it ha! See you in a bit for some more DLC! :)

Episode 16 - Jack's 55th Birthday

https://youtu.be/Roi7ZorTTrA


Hey all, while I may not have really liked Ethan Must Die, Jack's 55th Birthday is so much better! It's funny as hell to see Jack at the table with his birthday hat on, shouting for food lmao. The enemies also decided to dress up for the occasion :lew:.

Anyways, the objective is to find food, combine it with other food/spices etc and take it back to the table. Sounds simple right? Well, here's the 1st 3 stages to show why it can get a little bit tricky...

Thanks for watching! See you around for banned footage! :)

P.S. Say it with me everyone! HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACK!~

Episode 17 - Nightmare

https://youtu.be/aAHX5o5H3WI


Hey there folks, this time around we're going for another bit of DLC! Since I finally got the Banned Footage DLC to stop crashing on me (check the end of the description to find out how), we're going for Nightmare today!

Nightmare kinda reminds me of Zombies in CoD, only you're on your own and you have a scrap machine to boost ammo and upgrade weapons; there's a bit more to it than this but it's all in the vid lol. This is my first attempt at playing this (all these DLC vids are blind after all), so I'm not perfect. Close though! Sure lmao.

Thanks for watching! See you in a bit! :)

P.S. I got the Banned Footage DLC to stop crashing by deleting everything Resi 7 related off my PS4 and reinstalled it all. This included going onto the PSN store and going to the recent downloads section and redownloading them there :). I did delete my saves but moving them to the cloud might work just as well :).

Episode 18 - Bedroom

https://youtu.be/63YBN8xuqtI


Hey folks, some more DLC for you now! Bedroom is an escape the room game with a twist: Marguerite is making things difficult! Don't let her catch you escaping 0_0.

I actually quite enjoyed this but it's a wee bit tricky. I cut out the time where I wandered around, not realising you're meant to take the lantern next to the bed lmao. What a derp :/.

Thanks for watching! More coming! :)

P.S. I miss Crimson Room. None of their other flash games ever beat it :lew:.

Hey peoples, today we're taking on the sadistic game that Lucas thought up: Blackjack (or 21) with torture devices! You and your baghead opponent need to play against each other and hope to god you don't lose :s. Of course, it's fine if the opponent loses, which is completely unfair. Lucas, you're being unfair, ya shite! :/

Thanks for watching! I actually loved this minigame (especially all the aesthetics and how they fleshed out such a simple game), but the next one is the prequel to the main game. I actually heard about the idea of Daughters before but I haven't touched it or heard what really happens in it. Anyways, see you in a bit! :)
