“Resident Evil 7 biohazard” just hit shelves last Tuesday, and it’s already looking to be one of 2017’s biggest games with almost unanimous critical acclaim. What would any big video game release be without a collector’s edition, though? Thankfully Capcom was kind enough to provide us with one so naturally we unboxed it!
The first of two standout pieces included are the Dummy Finger USB, an item that confused players in the “Resident Evil 7: Beginning Hour Demo” and then again in the final game in one of Lucas’ sadistic trap rooms. The finger itself is high quality and bends at two separate joints. It’s only 4GB though so it’s probably not going to be your daily driver flash drive.
The real draw here though is the replica of the Baker Mansion that’s included. As you’ll see in our video, the mansion is incredibly detailed. It’s 8 inches tall and 7.5 inches long, and when you take off the chimney and spin the crank, it plays the song “Go Tell And Rhodey” from the credits of the game. It also lights up as the song plays which is downright creepy.
The collector’s edition also includes a lithograph of the Bakers at their dinner table happily enjoying a feast of nondescript meats, a VHS tape of the “Derelict House Footage,” a steelbook for the game and a creepy note. The VHS tape isn’t a real tape – it’s a creepy little case for the note and Dummy Finger. If you want one for yourself, it’ll cost you $179.99.
If you haven’t played “Resident Evil 7 biohazard” yet and you’re on the fence about picking it up, check out my review. The game’s first DLC pack comes out this Tuesday for $9.99 on PS4, so you can count on reading about my impressions as soon as I have my hands on it!
