The Evil Within 2's milk-wife monster boss is stupid as hell and exactly why it deserves to be played
I didn't expect to like The Evil Within 2, but since finishing it nearly two years after it was released, it's become one of my favorite horror games of all time. Yes, even in the year of the Resident Evil 2 remake, The Evil Within 2's schlock and gore and nonsensical plot far outshine Mr. X's big boots, much as I love 'em.The Evil Within 2 is a modern cult classic, an erratic and strange horror game that deserved far more praise than it received back in 2017. And I will explain why by making fun of it's incredibly stupid premise and an even stupider boss fight. Spoiler warning: I'll be openly describing the penultimate chapter of The Evil Within 2, even though I still don't understand it. Some context, and if you feel lost just know I'm right there with you: You're in the evil Matrix where everything is made of digi-milk. The lead character's wife is made of milk too, and she can wield the digi-milk like a milk sorcerer, a milkromancer, if you will. At one point you must fight the milk-wife, and it's one of the most ridiculous scenes in a videogame ever contrived. It's dumb and it rules, but we'll get to that.
Early yesterday morning, Polygon reported that Bethesda had issued a cease and desist order to Amazon marketplace seller Ryan Hupp, for his listing of a sealed copy of The Evil Within 2. Bethesda's case was that Hupp was not an
As explained here, Bethesda's legal firm, Vorys, recently sent a letter to one Ryan Hupp, telling him that his listing of a sealed copy of The Evil Within 2 on the Amazon Marketplace was "unlawful" and he would have to remove it or face legal action.Following up on this, Eurogamer approached Pete Hines, Bethesda's senior vice president of global marketing and communications and marketing, at QuakeCon for more information. Hines explained that the issue was not that Hupp was selling their game second-hand, but specifically that he listed it as 'new'. "All we're saying is if it's a previously owned product, you have to sell it as a previously owned product", he told Eurogamer."You could have opened it up," he went on to explain, "played it for five hours, taken whatever inserts or stuff was in there, put it back in shrink wrap and said, 'Hey this is new.' It's not new - you owned it, you bought it, so just l
Bethesda defends its legal threat against a man who tried to sell a "new", sealed copy of The Evil Within 2 on Amazon Marketplace
Overnight Polygon posted a report about Bethesda threatening an individual with legal action for selling a sealed copy of The Evil Within 2 on Amazon Market…
Bethesda made a strong single-player push this year with games like Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, Prey, and The Evil Within 2. The former recently got a trial, and now the latter has followed suit.
The Evil Within 2 is a very solid psychological survival-horror game, with one scene that was "so horrifically graphic," Joe wrote in his review," I worry recounting it will cause me to bring up my lunch." That's all I need to hear to know that this is a game I should be playing, but if you require a little extra convincing, the newly-released trial version on Steam should help.The demo will cover the "opening chapters" of the game, including "tight, nightmare-riddled, linear experiences, as well as the more open streets of Union." Sebastian's customization options are also included, so you've got a little bit of everything to play with—and as usual, any progress you make in the demo will carry over to the full game. Speaking of which, The Evil Within 2 is currently on sale for half-price—that's $30/£20/€30—in the "Save Player 1" sale Bethesda kicked off last night during The Game A
Last night, I played The Evil Within 2 on Kotaku’s Twitch channel. I expected a linear series of monsters and scares but instead found a loose, semi-open world structure that made me feel anxious and helpless. It’s a chaotic, freeform take on horror that make every encounter unique and scary.
