  1. I probably could. But it's always hard to know when the next threat is lingering. All new horror movies feel cheap. Somebody goes to investigate something. Then their pal surprises them, and it looks so forced for a jump scare reaction, that you cannot feel any emotional response other than, "Boo, ya just trying too hard!"
  2. I miss Lik Cheung as well. He was in a movie called Karado: The Hong Kong Flash. It was a number-one movie in the US during 1973, around the time these type of movies kicked off. But I don't know if he's still a living person. Lik Cheung was cast in a lot of poor quality, forgettable, Bruceploitation movies, sadly, but he was a heck of a fighter. Normally, they had an actor with a similar alias to Bruce Lee partnered with Lik Cheung, as they battled that huge guy named Bolo Yeung, before his JCVD fame took hold. In fact, when Lik was younger, he looked like Bruce Lee, but then he had an obvious resemblance to Jackie Chan. He may have retired from acting in films because they basically tried to make him come across as a rip off of Chan. Anybody else would have gotten fed up of that too. Unfortunately, no information is available for Lik Cheung online, as his IMDb entry only has his credits and stage names, with no other information listed. Hong Kong databases also have no major information on him as a person. He was also occasionally billed as Chang Nik, or Chang Li at times. He's likely glad to be away from the industry (if he is still alive).
  3. I only like the first three Silent Hill games and the prequel at a push. But I have to play it while looking at the guidebook, because you have to use mirrors to go into the alternative world. It's hard to remember where each room is. SH4 was way too hard to play in 2004. You were chased by a serial killer named Walter, and you had to revisit the same locations twice. Later on, Walter's victims returned as vengeful ghosts and you needed to find a special sword and rare bullets to stop them, as they were otherwise invincible. This made the game more annoying than enjoyable. There was too much backtracking as well. You could only save the game in Henry's sitting room, and you needed to constantly dump items in a box, but other games didn't have this gameplay. They never limited your carrying capacity. It was totally boring and hard in equal measures, too. But I did enjoy the storyline, as it was somewhat interesting. They had his victims as the enemies, like the twins he killed, were the running brown monsters with the faces. And your female neighbor eventually found her way alongside of you. RE is still good to play, but I think they'll keep making the games stray from the original storylines. You're better off just seeing the games now as their own self-contained stories, as essentially, I think that's how even Capcom views them today. They just bring up Umbrella a lot, so people get invested in the idea of Capcom going someplace with that idea. But, really. They're going to do so many games before we even get to see if the BSAA is Umbrella in disguise. It's like the carrot-donkey thing they're known for.
  4. Days Gone is nearly 3 years old already, as it was released on 26 April in the UK, way back in 2019. The weather was absolutely superb that season in Edinburgh, as I recall, just like in the game (sometimes). Where does the time go? ๐Ÿฅธ
  5. #FoodForThought This has been one of the most boring years for me, gaming, or otherwise. Not only did I nearly lose my mum a month ago, I may have to save up five grand for a B.S. civil case, and then thereafter, to get the authorities in bogan land to deal with some Australian fruitcake. It just gets you thinking that it's all a waste of your time. ๐Ÿคจ Games used to bring me joy. Now I normally complain a lot about how Resident Evil or Silent Hill or something isn't that good anymore. But why is that? Why did it all go downhill over the last two decades? Could it be, because... IT'S NOT GOOD! ๐Ÿ˜
  6. If you're familiar with old school martial arts movies, you may know him from his role as a fighter who loses an arm, but still proves to be a tough cookie. His health wasn't great in recent years, having suffered two strokes. He never really made many public appearances. He passed today, which is also my mother's birthday. Happy birthday, mum! https://www.thestar.com.my/lifestyle/entertainment/2022/04/05/039one-armed-swordsman039-actor-jimmy-wang-yu-dies-at-80
  7. OK. Konami still sucks, though. ๐Ÿ™ƒ Silent Hill is the scariest town in gaming.
  8. Now nobody is sure if it's a real game, or made up for publicity. It is possible they ran into development issues. But I think people are really beginning to think this is all bull, you know what. Also... #NotMySilentHill
  9. We may have to wait longer for news, as the decision has been made to cancel E3 entirely. Covid has really screwed up everyone's plans. Meh. Then again, it may not matter. Companies usually release information gradually anyway. So they'll likely just do updates online in any case. And if Capcom really had decided to axe the DLC, they probably would have said so by now. I will cut them some slack this once. This is content they're developing from the ground up. They didn't intend to release any extra stuff for fans initially, which may be surprising. But they better give us something good. As for the Ada Wong rumours; I personally think that if she is in the DLC, this is just going to further fuel my belief that Capcom really did want to copy RE4. Because it wouldn't make sense to have Ada anywhere in this game. None at all. I didn't even think Chris being in RE7 made sense either, at first. Many people actually assumed that wasn't him. And a Chris clone is actually seen briefly in RE8 in the ending. Chris wondered why the BSAA was developing clones to attack the lycans. So this could be part of an insanely insane plot twist. Who knows?
  10. We should just wait until May. I think with that being the one year anniversary, they may announce something then. Maybe.
  11. I just want a sequel, so much. ๐Ÿ˜‹
  12. It's good to know the petition for Days Gone has over a million signatures now. Keep those coming! ๐Ÿ™‚
  13. I'm happy with my Android TV box, other than the fact it has recently been randomly resetting. But they are very cheap, so meh. I can live for that... for now. There's so much you can add on it for free.
  14. Right now, I am just waiting to see what they reveal. So I cannot really say any more until there's something to go off of. I think E3 will be very interesting this year.
  15. Sounds good. I have the latest Uncharted game. So I could try that. I really like Naughty Dog, for they have a commitment to delivering quality. This company is way better than Capcom is today.
  16. Well, I would like sequels, or Revelations games. They could finally bring back Jill. As for remakes... In my opinion, remakes are not really new games. They're based on a storyline from an old game. So they don't even 'replace' the originals. The only one that kind of did was the 2002 remake. Therefore, I think in all the time they do that, they could be focusing on a newer entry. Of course, many people may not want to play the old games, simply because... well... they're old. So that's one benefit to doing remakes. However, if you played the originals, you'll know the new versions don't feel the same.
  17. Until Capcom has some news, I'm genuinely stuck on what else to say. Boredom ain't cool, though. I wonder what's the hold up on Capcom's part here. ๐Ÿ˜ž Imagine using Exoprimal to troll Dino Crisis fans as well. That's a low thing to do. But it is Capcom, so nobody should be that shocked they pulled a stunt like that.
  18. LOL. That must be a record. Truth be told though, there's not much more to add right now, seeing as how Capcom has yet to give us any real update.
  19. This was the first ever US #1 hit, in 1940. https://youtu.be/il7DWoLySW8
  20. I like them both equally. But I think the first game is slightly better, and I think 2 is the one everybody says is like the apex of the franchise. In 2, you got lost more easily, and some parts drag a bit. But yes. Both games are just as good. I really think 2 is graphically great in 2022, despite being a game from 21 years previously. SH3 is the only other good Team Silent game. As well as SH4, but SH4 is as hard as nails. Everything else is just lukewarm.
  21. LOL. With a site called Game Rant, it's only fitting they covered RE today. ๐Ÿ˜„ https://gamerant.com/resident-evil-fans-unimpressed-capcom-26-anniversary-announcement/
  22. Who is this Irish singer? ๐Ÿ˜… Clue: girl with brown colored eyes.
  23. By the way, Silent Hill already got a semi-remake. It was called Shattered Memories. All you did was use a cellphone and a flashlight, and you ran away from the monsters. Wow. So unique, indeed. ๐Ÿ˜™
