The Daily Moot (1/28/19)
1. Resident Evil 2 Remake is More Popular than Resident Evil 7
Capcom’s remake of Resident Evil 2 seems to have made a big splash, as it is more popular upon release than the series’ most recent game. Resident Evil 7 managed a peak of 20,449 players when it releases two years ago. In comparison, the Resident Evil 2 remake peaked at 74,227 players which is almost 4x more. Some of the game’s success may be attributed to the game’s demo, which demonstrated the remake’s impressive graphics to would-be players.
2. Destiny 2 Trailer for ‘The Last Word’ Hints at Another Popular Weapon Returning Bungie is bringing The Last Word, a popular hand cannon from the original Destiny, back to Destiny 2. The Last Word was a fan favorite weapon in the Crucible, so its return is surely welcome by Destiny 2 players. Bungie released a trailer today to celebrate The Last Word’s return, but the real interesting thing in the trailer is in the last few seconds; we see some uniquely shaped bullets that are an obvious hint at the Thorn returning. The Thorn is another popular weapon from the original Destiny and was at one point the game’s most overpowered weapon.
3. Metro Exodus will be an Epic Games Store Exclusive Metro Exodus is the newest addition to the Metro series, set to release next month on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. While the game was originally available for preorder on Steam, that is no longer the case. PC distribution of Metro Exodus will occur entirely on the new Epic Games Store, which offers developers a healthier cut of the sale price. As a result, Metro Exodus will only cost $50 USD in North America on PC. Metro Exodus releases on February 15th.
4. New Dragonball Z RPG ‘Project Z’ Announced Bandai Namco released a trailer this morning announcing a new RPG called Project Z. Project Z is set in the Dragon Ball universe and will feature Goku as the main character. Whether this is a new story or a retelling of an old one is still unknown. The trailer looks great, which is a good sign if it uses in game footage. We don’t know when Project Z will release exactly, but Bandai Namco stated the game is coming later this year.
