How the hell do you start a new game plus?? At the end of the game, when you beat it, it doesn’t ask you to save?!

Domiel exactly I went through it on mad house using the Albert pistol and the shotgun and grenade launcher but the bosses took me the most time it would have been less time if it hadn't been for them mainly jack final form

Hey Abollo, my screenshot for my endcard is on my channel. I made it in 5 hours and 11 minutes and no deaths. Don't automatically assume because you can't doesn't mean we're all that bad at games.

One of the worst decisions I made was to remove the antique coins from my inventory. I just defeated Jack in the chainsaw fight and after I got out of the house and entered the tiny room where the 44 mag gun was stored, I couldn't get the gun as I discarded the antique coins from my inventory. It was such an amateurish decision. One of the most challenging aspect of this game is to manage items in the inventory. I mean, u will get fucked if you discard an item which you think is not important, but later it becomes one of the most Important things in the game.

Bitch I just found out I can play this game on my jurassic Acer Notebook with Intel HD graphics and I'm shook. I choose normal difficulty and I died like 4 times for the first girl enemy. Like, bitch, I'm shook. I think I'm gonna restart the game with easy as I'm more interested in the story itself than the fighting sequences. And here I was thinking this piece of shit of a notebook would lag in minecraft.

Just finished the game yesterday and I mostly never closed the doors, never used the drug (unless my space is running out) and missed a lot of things like the grenade launcher (yeah when I realized it I face-palmed myself). And well... at least I'm done on normal difficulty 😂

... wrong, just get advanced handgun ammo, save shotgun ammo, block allot, get headshots, other weapons dont matter, infact, this is a game where you don't want help, you jump in and that makes it fun, the confusion, the panic, the stuggle, too bad the games too easy, only madhouse is difficult, just because of those licker molded, f them

I did not know that you can close doors. I have played every single Resident Evil game, including the spin offs and this is the one thing I kept finding myself trying to do, but didn't know how. If there's an instruction on how in the beginng, I must have missed it because my cousin played the first hour

This video is good advice. Here's my experience which was a bit different in some ways: The game IS pretty challenging and can sometimes be frustrating so don't feel bad starting with easy. Inventory management was NOT the crazy important, super focused activity for me that it was in this video. On normal I spent pretty much the whole game with at least two weapons, one full slot of meds, and two slots of spare ammo and only occasionally did I ever have to make a special trip to the save room to sort my stuff. The save rooms (which are completely safe from enemies, something to keep in mind) are spaced well enough that just encountering them through natural game progression was usually sufficient for me. In other words no, you don't want to roam around with more stuff than you need, but I didn't spend my playthrough particularly concerned about it either. Ammo, while scarce, was also not QUITE as bad as this video makes it sound. Don't get me wrong, while the handgun ammo is relatively common (and easy to produce, which I'll get to shortly) ammo for better weaponry is much less common so you obviously want to pick up everything that you see, yes. Just don't go thinking that items are delicately metered out to the point that you're going to be doomed to an unwinnable game state if you happen to miss some here and there. Speaking of ammo, don't waste any on Jack if you can help it. Just firing bullets at the guy won't kill him, taking him down requires more specific strategy (and don't fight him when he's wandering around the house looking for you, he's invincible during that time). Shutting doors isn't too important for the first few hours of the game, but it's not a bad practice either. I was doing quick turns (down plus B or circle) and shutting doors behind me only later in the game when the molded monsters began appearing more frequently. Similarly the sneakier behavior of the molded monsters - approaching you from behind, trapping you in groups, etc. - doesn't seem to happen too much until you get closer to the end of the game. Again, it's not a bad habit to quick-turn and shut doors and whatnot, it's just not really * necessary * for the first few hours of gameplay. The game is tense, but if you learn to tread carefully and fully investigate your surroundings you're not going to be getting jumped all the time or anything. Similarly, if you find yourself overwhelmed you can (and should) usually back up and run around some corners, up or down some stairs, and just generally get a few rooms away. The molded won't follow you that far, and can't get through doors. They will, however, retreat back into the walls or floors or whatever as they wait for you to come back, so you can't turn around and get the jump on them. You'll find chem packs scattered fairly regularly throughout the game (maybe a few dozen in total) which can make herbs more potent or create handgun ammo from gunpowder. Should you spend the packs to make meds, or should you spend them to make bullets? I went with about a two to one ratio, usually making meds and sometimes making bullets. By the time I finished the game I still had a fair amount of each. I needed herbs more often in the early parts of the game and ammo more often in the later parts of the game, but by that point handguns aren't very reliable anyway, so I basically just stuck to the 2:1 ratio of meds to ammo the whole time. There is a point where you'll be able to spend antique coins as described in the video, so grab them whenever you see them. They're not just there for collecting. There are about two dozen depending on which difficulty you're playing on. One of the items you can buy will give you a permanent health boost. Another will give you faster reloading, also permanently. I'd choose to buy those two items, in that order (you can also find a couple more throughout the game, their effects seem to stack). The gun you can buy is powerful but you'll find very, very few bullets for it and there's a free broken gun (and the kit to fix it) in the area of the purchasable items anyway. When you get keys, which will happen a few times in the game, try to save and then backtrack to doors that can be unlocked by them. Sometimes, if you continue with what you're doing instead of turning around to head straight back to those doors, you can miss an item (like a stronger weapon) that might have come in handy in the situation you were about to face. I can't speak for relying on the knife. The molded can take you down in three or four good hits and I didn't want to get close to them with nothing but a weak blade in my hands. Try to resist walkthroughs. The "puzzles" in this game are all very easy (there's one exception that's more complex but it limits the guesswork by taking place entirely in a small confined area) and you should be able to figure out how to take the bosses down on your own even if you might have to die and retry a few times in the process. If you need help remember to look at the tips when the game loads, they're often specific to what's going on in your current situation. Pay attention to the VHS videos, they usually show you places that you'll be encountering or useful things that you'll need to find in the near future. You don't have to study them super carefully, just try to "watch" them as soon as you find them and take the time to explore them as much as you're allowed to. TL;DR: Here's the bottom line: Just try to use some basic common sense. Play smart, yes, but don't let yourself get all worked up over fears of missing an important item, making micromanagement mistakes or running out of bullets and health. The game is well-made and my experience with it unfolded pretty naturally without the need for anal-retentive cautiousness. It's challenging, sure, but it's not out to punish you. Enjoy yourself. Take your time exploring. Avoid rushing into things. In general just don't play recklessly and you should be fine.

I learned that you can actually keep both the broken and pump shotguns and fix the broken shotgun I learned this from a youtuber named calloftreyark and so to fix the broken Shotgun first you need the broken shotgun from grandmas room then you need acsess to the outside and under the porch of the new house you can find a hole in the porch covered by bits and scraps of metal and then after going in that hole you acn find a repair kit in which you can repaor the shotgun How to get both shotgun in your inventory at the same time first you need to go the kids room and go into the attic then you need to find a model shotgun it looks like a wooden pump action shotgun then you can have both shotguns.

I've never played any of the resident evil games, I have anxiety and tend to panic- _(If you don't think I'm ridiculous for this, you can skip this paragraph.)_ I'm gonna say right here- I know, I sound like a big baby, but I have had this problem my whole life, have seen doctors and therapists, and have been confirmed that it is an actual disorder and it's hard for anyone to understand when they've never had it. It doesn't make sense, it's not always triggered by the same things, and it goes against all logic you have. I know it's dumb, and I already hate myself for it, you don't need to say awful things about it. I already tell myself everyday, so you'd be wasting your time. If you're already rolling your eyes, you may just be aggravated by reading further, but I do have some problems that aren't anxiety related, if you could suggest anything for those. If there's something in a game that really scares me I sometimes cover my eyes and/or freeze, including when I need to be actively playing, like when I'm being attacked and need to run or fight back. This really screws me over and fear is usually my main problem, but sometimes if I have to redo it and see it over and over I get used to it enough to get past it. This is usually in specific situations when certain scenes and jumpscares are used, if it's just a general feeling of helplessness and dread due to the gameplay, I'm pretty much screwed. This is why I couldn't play Amnesia. It would also help to list some other games like this, so I know what to avoid. It seems that you can fight back on this game, which might work in my favor, usually the only thing that gives me panic attacks so bad I can't play is when I am powerless against an enemy and I have to just avoid them or run. This is the reason I really hate horror stealth games. Often I just do things out of panic without thinking about it, (Which I know screws me over and in hindsight is really dumb, but I can't stop doing it.) I'm not great with limited items, I'm not good with survival and being fast, I have a tendency to want to keep absolutely everything, so I'm not good at limited inventory space either. (I'm more used to a weight limit, like in Bethesda games.) I'm good at finding things only if I'm in a "safe zone" if I have to be avoiding something or worry about being attacked, I'm likely more concerned with just getting out of there. Surprisingly I'm not really bothered by horrific imagery, gore, screaming/terror, etc. I played Saw no problem (I know that game really isn't that scary or well made at all, but just an example for the gore and terror.) Jumpscares do scare me quite a bit, but I'm usually okay if I'm alert and expecting them (Which I try to make sure I am before horror games anyway.) but that's kind of their nature, they take advantage of our survival instincts to give us a burst of fear, and they're pretty much everywhere in games, even non-horror games, so I've just learned to kind of deal with it. Dang, I have a habit of writing a lot, hopefully that's plenty of info to go off of! Does anyone have any recommendations, advice, or workarounds? I know the actual gameplay part likely won't be great for me, but I want to get into this game mostly for the story. I know the general premise, and I saw the dinner cutscene, and I know a bit about the family and why they are like that and the story seems interesting. The characters are complex and they are crazy and creepy but also kind of have other personality traits besides the typical "Stone-cold creepy antagonist family" None of the family even scares me very much appearance-wise except for Marguerette (I don't think I spelled that right.) She is one creepy bitch.

easy way to get the shotgun, run past all the black monsters in the processing area, get scorpion key and keep going until you get to the dissection room and you see jack pick up the dog head emblem and talk to himself, then go down to the double doors where the boss fight is BUT DONT GO IN! get as close as possible then turn around and head back towards grandma's room and you will notice jack is no longer checking around for you, you have free run of the house! so you can easily get the shotgun without worrying about him coming up behind you or something :)

i need help i beat resident evil 7 in normal mode. i wanted to get Alberto gun so i can play madhouse but never got weapon. Why?
Later on in the game when you're finding the keycards and you get in the attic there's a model shotgun on a shelf. Take that model shotgun and get the broken one back and keep it because 10 maybe 20 minutes after there's a weapon repair kit under a mannequin head with a baseball cap. repair the shotgun and now you've got yourself 2 shotguns

M in reality, it did not add much to the lore if anything contributed very little. I would however say its a fun stand alone game with a couple of the same items because the puzzles at least to me most of the time were too easy to call puzzles.
Domiel_Angelus (1 year ago)
My biggest tip is run both easy and normal before trying Madhouse, do your best to find all of the files and Mr. Everywhere statues to unlock their bonuses as you'll need them. The Secrets and Essence of Defense unlocks are almost essential in Madhouse, and if you got the pre-order defense coin you're a step ahead already. They save your butt big time against the bosses at the very least, yes you can guard against the car......... The Circular Saw will help you save a ton of ammo because you can stun-lock both Jack and Marguerite with it if you're able to strafe and stay with them to keep it attacking them. The Albert-01R is decent but it doesn't pack nearly as much punch as it should, it stayed in the crate for my two MH runs. It's also a low capacity weapon so you have to reload often which can put you at risk for otherwise easily avoided damage. X-Ray Glasses are good if you're trying to get all 33 coins in MH without looking them up. They'll also keep you from running around like a chicken with your head cut off when it comes to lockpicks. The Walking Shoes are a nice upgrade but I'd prefer if they were Running Shoes and boosted the run speed instead. If you survive Madhouse the first time you get the cheesy reward of Infinite Ammunition, which in previous games also meant no reloading but this one doesn't do that for ya.

Jamie Linsday (1 year ago)
I swear I will get this game when I get a PS4. Also, I have seen gameplay of this game and one guy I saw make huge mistakes on was discarding ammo, med kits, and Chem fluid to clear up inventory space. A different person who I saw, which I may do this strategy is that certain stuff as soon as you pick up head back to a save point and put what you picked up or other unneeded items into the supply box. Don't carry stuff you don't need, and if you have to go back and forth between going to the supply box and dropping off things in there then do it. It may be annoying, but it'll help for later
