I must say a few of us called it, very intriguing coming from the pedigree of Mikami and the quality standard (except on PS3) of Bethesda. So down for this, so very down.

Bear in mind, this isn't being worked on by Bethesda Game Studios (Skyrim, Fallout 3), it's Mikami's own studio, Tango. It's simply being published by Bethesda Softworks, who published such stellar games as Wet and Rouge Warrior. Granted, they also publish BGS games and Dishonored, but still.

As to the game, I remain skeptical, but I did appreciate their marketing thus far. The teaser videos were very well done.

If the information from the Japanese Press Release are true then this game is shaping up to be something.

Please don't be another shootbang with spooky corridors like Dead Space.

So long as it's not just random shit with the sole purpose to scare you, then I'm somewhat interested. Scary things that don't make any real sense = silly.

I can't be the only person that sees "perfect blend of horror and action" as a very suspect phrase.

Krantos Yes of course, and whilst that is true, how many truely bad games do Bethesda publish these days? Brink? That's one, and for every Brink we have a Dishonored quality level game.

Bethesda have a great mentality, and I trust that they wouldn't be putting money behind this if they didn't think it had the potential to be great (which Brink had as well, it just was executed awfully).

horror games are judged differently. At least by the genre's core fans. if this is a good shooter with decent atmosphere reviewers and general buyers are going to lap it up. even if it has shit pacing. doesn't mean it's a quality horror game (which is what it should be judged by if Mikami is attached to it). if that happens, it'll just be another nail in the AAA horror coffin. hope that doesn't happen, but the action bit he mentioned is unsettling

Resident Evil 4 is regarded as one of the best action game of its time. That doesn't change the fact that Barney Teaches you ABC's was more of a horror game than RE4. Didn't stop the entire world from thinking that horror "changed" or such other nonsense like evolve or whatever.

I'm very cautious if not slightly optimistic (more like hopeful) that this is the horror game we all wanted but I wouldn't be surprised if we had another Shadows of the Damned situation going on here.
