Have you sent any of the CHE staff a Skype contact request AvP Ryu?! You have to be connected to one of us to then be added to our group call. We will be continuing this evening so find me on Skype (contact name = george_trevor), send me a contact request and we'll add you to the group call for this evening. The same goes for any other residents that would like to join us this evening at 11:00 GMT / 18:00 EST with late comers most welcome as we will be reviewing & debating long into the night...

The review has been postponed until February the 5th at 23:00PM GMT/18:00 EST. Gives us all more time to play/research the game. Sorry about the delay. The review will be up very soon after its completion due to no editing we are just going to upload it to Youtube instantly and will post a link here and on our social media outlets. Thanks! If anyone would like to join, submit a recording or just ask a question or give feedback we can read it please feel free to post it here.

Hey guys!!

Thanks for the Skype Invite!!

This sounds like an amazing idea, but unfortuantely I won't be able to join you guys.... as I haven't played it yet.... I know, I know, what's going on?

Basically, if you'll indulge me a moment, when my UK/EU Collector's Edition order fell through, which I'd ended up having to pre-order through a UK eBay Seller, as opposed to GAME, directly, [I'm afraid that this was just poor planning on my part], I then 'lucked out' and managed to buy a CE.... on the day of release.... from a eBay Seller in Hungary....

Since both sellers had offered up the product w/ a copy of the game, I therefore hadn't ordered it separately, and it only just arrived 'yesterday'.... [in case anyone was wondering, yeah, the main chimney was broken off, but, under the circumstances, I'm happy to have it, and, to be honest, it does fit back on to where it should without it even being noticeable.... love the artbook, also].

Needless to say, I was pushing through some serious fear factor late last night, and I have made it through the initial 'set-up' stage of the game, but, as it is, I'm off to London today to see my brother for the weekend.

I have to 'Welcome' my week-old niece to 'My Family' this weekend. :)

N e way, I hope you guys have a great discussion, and I will be listening/watching as soon as possible.

I would love to join another discussion at another time, with any of you, if it's ever on the cards.

I just wanted to at least reply to the invite in some shape or form, as I thought a formal response was deserved.

JC

That would be really great Yoke, the main group are starting at 6 PM EST but a couple of others are only able to make 4 PM EST, so feel free to give us the heads up on what best suits you for Sunday.


@JC Wesker: Cheers man, looking forward to another date with you some time in the future.

Hey peeps!

This sounds interesting, I did manage to get hold of RE7 on launch day and managed to complete the game twice so far. I'm interested in what everyone here think's of the game. 
During this discussion, are we going into spoiler territory? Or do we have to avoid talking about spoilers for RE7?

Great to hear from you The Loving Zombie, and even better if you can join us!? We will be discussing the game in full, including the narrative of the main game from start to end, so a comprehensive review. I would advise anyone who has not played the game through to completion to avoid this call like the plague! I've just completed my 2nd play-through; will try and squeeze one attempt at Madhouse mode before Sunday. I also hear that a read-through of the Umrella Corps. files is essential (according to CrimsonElder so blame him!)

Yeah that would pretty cool to join you guys in the discussion. I've just setup Skype, so I need to send a request to "george_trevor".

There's quite a few George Trevors in the world of Skype isn't there :D 

So as you've said just before, does the Skype discussion start at 4pm - 6pm in the UK?

I'm afraid I can't make it to the live review, but I can post some thoughts here:


What does everyone think of the new "Umbrella Corporation"? Personally, I think it is pretty obvious that this is all "Umbrella Co." ever stood for, and that "Umbrella Corps" was just the name of the game with no actual place in Canon. What I can't stop thinking about is, apparently, a company called Tentsu made E-001 (Eveline), our big boss enemy, and the files show that they achieved this with assistance from HCF. I believed this to finally be confirmation that the rival company had a name, Tentsu, at first. But others apparently believe that said rival company has in fact become "Umbrella Co." and Tentsu, like Tricell or Shéng-Yā from Heavenly Island, is just another fodder group.


Is HCF a military force owned by Tentsu, Shéng-Yā, Umbrella Co., or someone else we still don't have a name for? Could they have been the men that attacked the Annabelle tanker and rescued Ethan [and Mia] at the end? Obviously "Umbrella Co." would not be available for the rival company to use as its name until sometime after 2004. It is indeed very possible that Albert renamed it this with all the assets he stole from the original company after burning it and taking over the rival company, or they simply decided themselves that this was a better name to go by. The problem I have with this is, why would the same company that helped create Eveline then seek to steal or destroy her? If they weren't going to have access to her, why help make her in the first place? And wouldn't Eveline, a B.O.W. designed to stop warfare, put such a company out of business?


What do you guys think?
