2021 in review: Lady Dimitrescu: Icon of the year
2 : Anonymous2021/12/29 00:46 ID: hqckud3

I felt like she was pretty underutilized, I wanted more castle overall tbh.

ID: hqcwq96

I think it's a shame that the castle was so early into the game. It was easily the best part. I had an absolute blast with it, and it kinda felt like the game peaked way too early.

ID: hqcwy1w

Beneviento was were I’d say it peaked, wish there was more scares like that in the game

ID: hqfayv4

lady dimitrescu = power of marketing

ID: hqfe2w7

Iirc the devs or the art director weren't expecting such a strong reaction to her.

Which makes me optimistic that the DLC for the game may gravitate towards her character since now they're developing with the strong reception in mind.

There’s a lot to like about Village but it’s not super replayable to me. The castle and the factory are the only fun sections to replay imo, and they’re too short.

ID: hqequt9

Oh man the factory scared the shit out of me, I just beat the game yesterday and those mech-type mobs had my anxiety at an all time high the entire time lol.

I was thinking how the game might not have high replay value, (minor spoiler ahead) but they were pretty smart with how they added more guns like Chris’s OP assault rifles and infinite ammo options if you fully maxed out a particular gun after your first play through, which genuinely sounds fun for extra play throughs. As someone who can’t handle horror games, so my “normal” play through was a one and done, I would totally be down to try another difficulty with those options haha.

ID: hqeu3uu

That’s because this game was essentially re6 all over again in that the game is divided up into different areas that each have different play styles. And guess what? The castle had the gameplay everyone wanted. The rest of the game is just… trying too hard to appeal to too many other types of players IMO.

She’s just like boba fett. Minimal screen time but fan favourite.

ID: hqdlzsv

Lesson being: People get way too attached to the aesthetics of a character, enough to ignore that there's essentially zero depth.

ID: hqekoew

Then 40 years later, give them depth

The Book of Boba Fett, now streaming on Disney+

ID: hqfbq5r

There’s a lot of depth and lore in this character though what are you talking about?

ID: hqe3bs8

To this day I can't really understand why Boba got to be a fan favorite. He does almost nothing on the films, and it's almost clumsy.

ID: hqebpqn

Only 2 reasons. He looks badass and he talks back.

ID: hqekumc

It’s literally just his armor and that he’s a bounty hunter. He became a major hit from 5, then in 6 George kind of “killed” him unceremoniously and made him look weak.

ID: hqf61ad

Booba Fett ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Unfortunately even Capcom wasn't able to predict she would be this much popular when the made the game. cause if they did, they'd increase her screen time even more. She really is a fascinating character not just for her looks, but because she has the potential to be an interesting antagonist.

ID: hqeufad

They made a tall, THICC, sexy, vampire lady who was a fun character. They underestimated her big time

5 : Anonymous2021/12/28 23:37 ID: hqcbfjm

Her performance was great, but honestly I think some thirst influenced this. Out of all the characters to come out this year she won? AND she was only in 1 part of the game.

ID: hqcdjyq

I just beat Village this afternoon and I couldn't believe it when I saw that she literally has a total of like 15 minutes of screen time and that's it. Before playing I genuinely thought she was a big part of the whole game, especially with all the awards her character is getting, so when I beat her I was taken aback for a moment lol. She was great for sure, but her time in the game is so short .

ID: hqcfi2j

Why do you think they’re making DLC for the game? Lol, it’s definitely due to her massive…impact

ID: hqcnxs6

I haven’t played the game but your comment is the first time I’ve known she isn’t a main part of the game lol

ID: hqetfmi

Anthony Hopkins won an Academy Award for lead actor with 16 minutes of screen time in Silence of the Lambs.

ID: hqdvh35

Oh look this guy beat the castle in 15 minutes.. give me a break. The castle is the largest area in the game and the one that sticks In my mind the most upon finishing. People act like she had a small role. Bienviento and Moreau had small roles. Her and Heisenberg had the biggest roles in the whole game imo

ID: hqdj26c

Yeah I think the internet run away with this one. Her part is good and she's a fun character but the idea that she's winning awards, along with the voice actress, is weird to me.

ID: hqd9dfu

Dude when she went full wolverine

I think the duo of Colt And Julianna from Deathloop was the best part of that game and it's a shame that they were overshadowed for two big reasons.

Pretty dumb, she was just a thirst trap for people who think big boobs means hot

8 : Anonymous2021/12/29 00:11 ID: hqcg3rg

thirsty memes = icon of the year

9 : Anonymous2021/12/29 00:13 ID: hqcgdjc

And yet it’s too bad she was such a minor part of the game. Totally overhyped. It would’ve been great if she was a major villain that appeared throughout the story

ID: hqch89g

I was expecting her to be like centipede guy from Resident Evil 4 (forget his name) and stick around at the very least for a third of the game.

ID: hqchl4p

Bitores Mendez. I was hoping the same. Would’ve loved to see a fight between her and Heisenberg or for her to hunt you down for revenge

ID: hqdbp1v

It was literally the largest area of the game

ID: hqf37v8

Her area being the largest part of the game doesn't make her 15 minutes of total screen time any longer, she was great of course, but what the comment you're replying to is saying is that given all the immense hype/awards she's getting they thought she was going to be a bigger part of the whole game.

ID: hqf5g2h

and the most prominent antagonist

10 : Anonymous2021/12/29 02:26 ID: hqcy3zu

She has big boobs and big bum therefore she is an icon... Was there anything else iconic about her as a character?

ID: hqdguc7

Besides that the VA performance was really good.

11 : Anonymous2021/12/29 14:11 ID: hqet2ub

She's just thicc and people love memes

12 : Anonymous2021/12/29 14:52 ID: hqey9ip

Juliana from Deathloop was a better character all around. She felt like an actual person with her dialog between her and Colt.

We all know why Lady D won... sometimes the meme gets too big.

13 : Anonymous2021/12/29 01:35 ID: hqcrgrf

She was the one thing that united all of us in this turbulent year.

The gaming industry: Stop oversexualising female characters!

Also the games industry:

Haven't played RE8 yet, waiting for the inevitable PSVR2 version!

16 : Anonymous2021/12/29 18:20 ID: hqftavw

What a joke, she's a minor character

17 : Anonymous2021/12/29 11:34 ID: hqedx11

I know she had really less screen time but which other video game character created as much buzz as Lady D? That's why she's Icon of the year not because her character rivals with that of Arthur Morgan or something.

18 : Anonymous2021/12/29 04:57 ID: hqdgrtg

I haven’t beat the game yet but i did kill her on the tower…. does she return or is she dead for good?

ID: hqdnc1p

dead for good... really disappointing how little of an impact she had

19 : Anonymous2021/12/29 09:16 ID: hqe3gc1

She reminds me of Cyberpunk.

Lots of pre-launch hype and then you get the game and she’s gone fairly quickly, never to be seen again.

RE8 was a step back from 7.

20 : Anonymous2021/12/29 13:14 ID: hqemrqp

Who would ever click a eurogamer link plagued with site tracking.

22 : Anonymous2021/12/29 10:48 ID: hqeacak

Icon that didn’t do Jack shit in her own game, lol. She sucked just as much as RE8 did.

23 : Anonymous2021/12/29 15:27 ID: hqf30cq

Who were the other candidates?

24 : Anonymous2021/12/29 20:03 ID: hqg9btm

She has under 20 minutes of screen time, wtf is going on?
