    Anyone play it? It's on steam for the master race. Dunno where it's available for the peasants.

    Thoughts?

    As brief as it was, I was loving it. A return to the horror roots of the series and it feels like the first person perspective will enhance the mood as opposed to simply being a VR gimmick. It was appropriately creepy and had a couple nicely timed scares. Could wind up being pretty pant-shittingly terrifying.

    The engine is quite impressive in it's rendering of light and shadows. The first few rooms are very reminiscent of Texas Chainsaw and the Silent Hill games.

    This is like 6 months old for the console master race. Get with the times buddy.

    So its been out for awhile? had no idea. Just came across it today on PCGamer. Makes sense, though. There's a lot of PC options which may explain the delay. Which is good news since it means they're giving the port it's proper preparation. I'll edit the title

    I dug it, either way. Love seeing the grandaddy of 3d horror games taking aim at the crown it relinquished in pursuit of the quick-time-event beanie.

    I was gonna say, I remember playing the beginning hour back in the summer. There have been a couple more demos since then, I think.

    Played just now.

    They should rename it to Silent Hill or Evil Within 2. What haunted house got to do with zombie outbreak?

    I run the game on max details, 2k, 100% cpu usage, 6gb gpu and 4gb of ram.

    No performance issues.
