Resident Evil Village: All The Easter Eggs We’ve Found (So Far)

Published

on

There’s still time for references, even in a game as terrifying as Resident Evil Village. The early hours of Village have more references to past games than we expected — and we’re talking about the classic entries in the series. There are tiny, easy-to-miss Easter eggs in Ethan’s house in the prologue, and the references just continue from there. We’re going to try our best to list them all, so keep an eye on this space. We’ll be adding anything else that belongs in the Easter eggs category.

Resident Evil Village might not look like it, but this is a direct sequel to Resident Evil 7: Biohazard. After relocating his family to Europe, Ethan’s life is disrupted once again by Chris Redfield — his wife is killed and his child is kidnapped. Armed with nothing but your wits, you’ll have to survive a nightmarish new reality in a secluded village guarded by four insane lords. To save your family, you’ll have to take them all down. This is a very different Resident Evil, sharing a surprising amount of similarities with RE4, the most highly rated game in the series history. And yes, there is an Easter egg related to the traveling RE4 merchant.


Joseph Kendo & George Trevor

Right at the start of the game, you’re in Ethan’s new house with his wife and child. The house is pretty reference free — you won’t see any pictures of Barry (or a Tyrant) on the walls, but there are two major references only Resident Evil aficionados will notice. Upstairs, there are two optional rooms you can explore — one is the storage room, the other is the office — both have bookshelves you can examine.

The storage room has a bookshelf with this description; “A Historical look into the Architecture of Eastern European Castles and Keeps by George Trevor”, which is a name fans will recognize. George Trevor is the same George Trevor that built and designed the Spencer Mansion from Resident Evil 1. In the remake released later, George Trevor’s descendent Lisa Trevor was included as an unstoppable monster chasing you through the halls. Trevor isn’t the only famous character referenced in the house!

Go to the office behind the bedroom and examine the bookshelf back there. You’ll find this description; “Gun Survivalist: A Heavy Firearms Manual for Field Combat Situations by Joseph Kendo”, and we all should remember him. Robert Kendo is the owner of the Kendo gunshop — one of the first locations you visit in the original Resident Evil 2. In the Resident Evil 2 Remake, we get a little scene with Kendo and his daughter. Joseph Kendo is Robert Kendo’s brother, and they’re both in the gun business. They’re the guys that developed the unique Samurai Edge pistols!

Joe Kendo never appears in any game, so how do we know he exists? Well, he’s the creator of Leon’s gun in RE4 — where he owns his own gun shop in San Francisco. It looks like Joe Kendo is still going strong in the RE-verse.


What’re ya buyin’?

There’s a new mysterious merchant on the block. When Ethan Winters arrives at Castle Dimitrescu, the Merchant is the only friendly face you’ll encounter for a very long time. This extremely large man fills every space he’s in — and he’s got a few things to say. He sells weapon upgrades, healing items, ammo, parts and more. He’s basically just like the Merchant from RE4!

And that’s confirmed with a little Easter egg. After a few visits, the Merchant will bellow “What’re ya buyin’?” — a well-known line from the Merchant in RE4. The RE8 Merchant says it’s something an old friend of his used to say. It’s a cute little reference to a fan-favorite character from the series best game. Now I really want to see the RE4 Merchant make a comeback. Maybe he can be your friendly vendor in a DLC episode? Come on, Capcom!


Work-in-Progress: Check back soon for more Easter eggs and references!

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin Trial is Broken, Square Enix Working to Resolve

Published

on

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin_03

If you watched the Square Enix Presents: Summer 2021 E3 showcase yesterday, then you no doubt caught the announcement of Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin. Developed with Team Ninja, the hack and slash title is set in the same universe as Final Fantasy 1 as Jake and friends fight to slay Garland/Chaos. Square Enix also announced that a trial version was live for PS5.

However, those who downloaded it found the demo to be corrupted and unplayable. The developer responded on Twitter, noting that it was “aware of issues being experienced” and it’s currently working to resolve it. There will be an update tweeted “as soon as we can” so fans will have to sit tight and wait.

It’s probably not the best look for the title whose announcement trailer inspired mixed actions (mostly due to the main character’s design and overuse of the word “Chaos”). Nevertheless, the trial will provide a better look at what to expect gameplay-wise. It offers multiple weapons and Jobs for players to choose from, though progress made won’t carry over into the full game.

Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin is out in 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and PC.

Starfield is “Very Big”, Developed to be Played for a “Long Time” – Todd Howard

Published

on

Starfield (4)

Starfield is a game of several firsts for Bethesda Game Studios. It’s the studio’s first new universe in more than two decades; ventures into outer space and explores the great beyond; and is developed using the new Creation Engine 2. Despite all of that, it still has many of the tenets that define a Bethesda title like first and third person modes. Director Todd Howard even says the structure is “kind of like Skyrim.”

Much like the latter, it will have one playing for a long time. Speaking to The Telegraph, Howard spoke a bit about the design for cities while touching on how rewarding the experience would be. “I don’t want to set any crazy expectations for that. You know, we have cities and we build them like we built the cities we’ve built before. And we have lots of locations that we’re building like we’ve built before.

“And we want that experience of you exploring those to be, you know, as rewarding as we’ve done before. There are some different spins on that given the subject matter, but we like that about games. We want to point in a direction and walk and have our curiosity be piqued, and hopefully rewarded.”

He then added that it’s going to be “very big.” “People are still playing Skyrim and we have learned from that. We spent more time building Starfield to be played for a long time, if you so chose that you just wanted to keep playing it. It’s got some more hooks in it for that, that we added later to a game like Skyrim… while still making sure that somebody who just wants to play it, and go through the main quests and ‘win’, or feel they’ve accomplished something large is doable.”

So if you’re keen on going through Starfield for a one-and-done experience, then Bethesda has you covered. It should be interesting to see how mods will be handled, since that’s one reason why The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim remains popular till this day. We’ll have to wait and see especially because Starfield releases on November 11th 2022. It will be available for Xbox Series X/S and PC along with Xbox Game Pass.
