For all its changes, Resident Evil 7 still has healing herbs

It wouldn't be Resident Evil without herbs. Capcom may be taking Resident Evil 7 in some unexpected directions, but as far as the game's healing items are concerning, it's business as usual. The company sent this image to folks signed up f...   read

Back in 1995 is a bad game made with good intentions; a recreation of classic survival horror and analogue limitations through rose tinted glasses and the haziest of memories. Towards the end, there’s a message from the developer abou...   read
