Why we're so excited for Resident Evil: Village and its very tall lady - it's the Eurogamer next-gen news cast!

Oh, mother.

It's Friday, and that means it's time for another Eurogamer next-gen news cast! In the video below, Eurogamer news editor Tom Phillips, reporter Emma Kent and me discuss the week's news, including the gameplay reveal of the promising Resident Evil: Village. Is its very tall lady a vampire? This is actually something we have thoughts about.

We're excited for Village, but we're not so pumped for multiplayer spin-off Re:Verse. Capcom's multiplayer Resident Evil offerings have been mixed at best, and we're not sure why Re:Verse, with its off-putting art style, even exists.

Eurogamer Next-Gen News Cast - Why we're so excited for Resident Evil: Village and its very tall lady.

Elsewhere in next-gen news, PlayStation 5 scalpers are at it again - although GAME has played down the claims from some on social media who posted screenshots of scores of secured orders alongside a boast about making loads of money from them.

We then have a chinwag about Sony's decision to pull the PS5 game release windows it published in the small print of its own CES 2021 video, and what we think that means for those release dates (spoilers: everything will probably be delayed anyway).

Then we're onto an upcoming Microsoft exclusive: the mysterious Project: Mara. This week, developer Ninja Theory offered a fresh glimpse at its "mental terror" experience, and its photo-realistic apartment. This is certainly one to watch.

And finally, Skyrim! Now, I know Bethesda's near decade-old role-playing game isn't exactly next-gen, but this week it emerged you can get Skyrim running at 60fps on a PS5 with the help of a new mod, and all of a sudden I feel the need to jump back into its open world - again. You know, if Bethesda put out a next-gen console update for Skyrim, I'm pretty sure it would do well!

Oh, and keep your eye out this week for a mug check. Perhaps we'll make it a regular thing.
