I watched more then I should have.

I really liked watching chapter 5 because it's really entertaining seeing all the psychological effects it shows. The boss battles seem really fun with variety in there. I love the atmosphere even if it seems much more smooth then before.

It seems that they only handhold in the outdoors because there's a bad signal indoors. I'm going to think of it as going to one RE area to another.

STORY THINGS HELLO

Sebastian meets a dying Mobius guy who tells him to turn on a stabilizing emitter because it will greatly affect "His" power. It's one of those not-so-clever vertical slices of dialogue where the audience isn't supposed to know who "He" is. But with the capitalized H in He, it makes me feel like it's someone more significant than Stefano. The dying soldier says this as though Sebastian's supposed to know who he's talking about, and Sebastian just parrots back, "He...? You mean...?" and there's no confirmation either way if either one of them are talking about the same person or who that person is. First hints at Ruvik?

New details from the insane amount of videos out there now. I was quickly skimming youtube videos and this is a series of notes I took down.

Bosses are like a mash up of everything great about TEW1 bosses mixed with everything great about the DLC's bosses. One wasn't agressive enough for my taste but eh it heated up after a while.

You can blow the limbs off of Lost, shoot a Lost in the arm and the the Lost will be disarmed.

Ammo carry capacity is upgraded by pouches you can find apparently.

Options are really extensive and some good to know info is that every piece of on screen info can be switched off. Partner health, radio signals, area names, vignettes during cutscenes, you can even turn on a centre dot or turn off that new quick turn.

Tatiana related gameplay spoilers.
There are a series of target shooting minigames to play that feature TEW1 enemies and offer substantial rewards. Seb does a goofy Frank West style celebration upon winning, Tatiana gives sarcastic responses.


That roaming range thing might be a glitch or not as bad as I first thought. I've seen gameplay of the same creature reveal segment play out where the player was chased for much longer in a few videos.

Not a new detail more a returning one but Polygon run out of ammo for their shotgun and only switch when Seb says his classic "out of ammo". People don't appreciate how useful that line is. Original Seb only said what he had to, like "shit" repeatedly at that one door he hates.

I totally missed that exchange Auto posted and all of it's implications so thanks for that. I really skim through these things, it's the closest to self control I get.
