This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

The unreleased version of Resident Evil competitor. I first saw this when someone on Youtube played through it and it seems fit for anyone who enjoyed RE2 remake. (Not me ). Hopefully other retailers to follow, but TGC and 365games are only two retailers with a listing at the moment, I think.

Release date: 28th April 2020

DAYMARE: 1998 is a third-person survival horror with hardcore survival mechanics and hard to kill enemies. It requires a strategical approach to combat and puzzles and offers a multi-character point of view on the story, revealing a deep and obscure lore.

The scene is set with a secret research facility, a deadly chemical weapon and a special security team to investigate this incident with the potential to become much more than just a security breach. Follow the steps of an elite soldier, a helicopter pilot and a forest ranger, as they play out their roles in an event that transforms one peaceful small town into a deadly zone and its citizens into bloodthirsty monsters. Take the creatures down first, before looking for any clues and evidence to bring more sense to the mess. Keep track of your itinerary, as resources are scarce in a situation like this! Anything can happen when your daymares become real…

Fans of the iconic cinematographic brands and classical gloomy survival horror games of the '90s will be thrilled, seeing how DAYMARE: 1998 recreates the atmosphere of the most beloved works from the end of the millennium and places a typical yet fresh story in the middle of it. The plot unfolds through the eyes of various characters, putting players in the shoes of different personalities that will guide them through their theories and doubts about the situation. Backtracking, managing ammo, collecting lore items, solving environmental puzzles and the overall difficulty will help players jump a couple decades back and get chilled to the bone in their first real daymare.

I'm not sure if Daymare is the greatest or worst name for a game yet?
I interviewed the developer at Gamescom... Was a really nice chap. I told him that he should try and get a physical copy through the door. Glad it's working out for him...

Had never heard of this, looks right up my street


It was fan made RE2 remake(RE2 reborn) that was blocked by Capcom so instead of tossing away all hard work they made some changes and voilà.
Just a warning, this got difficulty level straight from 1998 so not for a snowflakes

Not a bad price really considering.
Do the The Game Collection take money when pre-ordering or when game comes out?

If paying by card, they will take it a few days before release or 3 months after placing your order, whichever is sooner.

it's somehow both imo
At £25 I’ll give that a go, I was worried they would slap £40+ on this and it not really getting much traction.
Sweet had £5 worth of points saved, so a mere £20.95 for me!

Looks good, but the black edition tat isn't really that appealing so I'll wait a bit to make sure it runs decent enough. Steam reviews are pretty positive and most negatives are around dialogue and voice acting, which is better when it is awful in these types of games to be fair.

Nostalgia goggles are affecting you terribly if you think PS3 games look like this game.

Voice acting is iffy and the cutscenes are dodgy too, but this looks great for the price. All developers start somewhere and they don’t all have a AAA budget from the big publishers.

Completely different games, one is a single player survival horror game, the other a pvp game.

Save your time next time and don't bother.

How can it be better if it's a completely different game? They're incomparable.

Ok I'll rephrase it! A GAME THAT (FROM WHAT I'VE SEEN) IN MY OPIN-ION APPEALS TO ME MORE AND LOOKS BETTER! Don't have to literally pull apart every word I used, just being pedantic!

They're both shooting games albeit with a different perspective ie Daymare is third person and H:S is an FPS but they both have a horror element. I'm not comparing it to Crash Bandicoot ffs! Plus it's just my opinion!

Horror is a very broad genre in all forms of media as well you're entitled to your opinion but your original point was very confusing, and misguided

Madam
Is this the game that started out as a re2 remake before capcom stepped in?
They put the price up!!! Cheeky
bas&@?ds. I hadn’t got around to placing my order and it’s jumped up in price.

As mentioned several times, yes.

Now cheaper at 365 games fwiw

The worst script of any videogame I've ever played.

No English localisation, except what seems like a machine translation or Google Translation, giving rise to phrases like;

"" I don't care what Titter-ridden cow curdles the milk those pasteurizing big shots call us in to mop up!"
(This makes no sense in English whatsoever.)

They also literally interrupt themselves to dump random lines of pointless exposition about events that apparently happened in their backstories that show how dark and edgy they are. It's an utter mess.

That's before we even get to the clunky, slow, repetitive intentionally obtuse gameplay and the worst menu system of any game I've played since the PS1 era. Avoid!
Asked around, and for those interested, this is only being released Physically on PS4. Digital only on the X1.
