Something to look forward to: If you're already tired of seeing images of Lady Dimitrescu all over the internet, get ready for a lot more once Resident Evil Village arrives. The first gameplay footage of Capcom's horror has dropped, showing that players will be able to capture the 9-foot 6-inch beauty using its photo mode.

IGN published a five-minute clip of the next Resi running on a PlayStation 4 Pro in all its 4K/60fps glory. During the now-famous cutscene in which Lady Dimitrescu speaks on the phone with the mysterious Mother Miranda, the bottom right of the screen reveals that hitting the Option button can skip the scene or enter a photo mode—something Resident Evil 7 lacks. There's also a very cool moment when the lady hurls her dresser across the room.

Elsewhere, we see protagonist Ethan wandering Castle Dimitrescu's cellars and blasting/stabbing some hooded creatures in the first-person perspective that first appeared in Resi 7. It is running on a last-gen PS4 Pro, so the textures and lighting don't exactly pop, but expect the game to look a lot better on the PC and PS5/Xbox Series X/S.

We recently heard that Capcom was embracing the cult-like status attained by Lady Dimitrescu by advertising Village using 1:1 scale standees, which have been appearing at gaming outlets in Hong Kong and Japan. She's also been spotted on the side of Hong Kong buses.

Fans of snu-snu might want to check out 6'9" model Ekaterina Lisina (below), who makes the best Lady Dimitrescu we're ever likely to see.

Gameplay showing the age of these consoles to my eye, despite the fact it is on the refresh PS4 Pro. The water effect and reflections look particularly low quality.

Perhaps this game's ambitions exceed the old console hardware. It's definitely one to be playing on the best hardware you have available, at least there is a free upgrade path for console. As for PC let's hope that it is as impressive as the earlier ports, which were easily the best versions.

This is really basically a VR game to help sell PS5 VR2.

What do you think Freud would say about a male's interest in a woman with huge bust towering over you?
I think he would get so worked up that he would have stopped saying some of the ridiculous **** he said and disappear for a while. Maybe 20 minutes or so at least.

I mean, Freud found a way to profit from humans pooping. But he had the luxury of telling people what was intelligent instead of needing to live up to accepted conventions from the start.

He is referring to Oedipus Complex, about a large breasted female towering over you. Basically trying to be cute and tie it to Freud, which I would say is clearly wrong, it's the fem fatale cougar trope trying to kill you and has 3 hot daughters also trying to kill you, so take it for what you will. Vampires in general are meant to be a cautionary tale about having everything you could possibly want but at a cost, I don't know if Freud ever commented on the literature of that old female vampire lesbian story or the mythology of the creature itself.

Ok so it took me 2 days to research what the hell you are saying 🤔 😁
Still not sure I get it but I do know of Oedipus because we discussed it in High School. But now I think I need to say something smart and witty just to feel like I deserve to be in the conversation with you:
