Weirdest Resident Evil Village Mods | From Baby Chris Redfield To Duke As Pudge

We've covered a few "weird" Resident Evil Village mods in the past, including turning Lady Dimitrescu into Thomas the Tank Engine and fighting off a horde of the world's friendliest purple dinosaur with Barney, but there is still so much oddness out there. Resident Evil Village is already pretty weird, especially when looking at how much Capcom apparently hates Ethan Winters' hands, but trust me when I say that it can get a lot weirder. So ... without further ado ... let's talk some of the weirdest Resident Evil Village mods that you need to try.

Before diving in, some of these are made just for the demo (not all though). If you like them, however, keep tabs because full versions are on the way.

Nine Inch Nails And Animal Crossing: New Horizons Collide With 'Nine Inch Nooks'

Nine Inch Nails And Animal Crossing: New Horizons Collide With 'Nine Inch Nooks'

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is one of the most wholesome games out on the market. Nine Inch Nails is definitely not one of the most wholesome bands, but that doesn't stop me from simping Trent Reznor and his delectable dark tunes. So when I saw a mashup of the two worlds with a Nine Inch Nooks Closer cover, it was just too weird not to share. 

The cover was made by Jenn Welch and is a shot-by-shot remake of Nine Inch Nail's Closer song. If you're a fan like I am of his music, then you know what the lyrics to this are, so uh, it makes sense then that Welch would use a version of the song without lyrics, instead using vocal sounds from the game when bringing it into the realm of Animal Crossing: 

I'm not going to lie, it's pretty perfect, especially when you compare it to the original music video for Closer. Is this the crossover I was expecting to see? Not even remotely, but I can tell you that I'm not even close to being mad at it. 

Nier: Automata HD Texture Pack Mod Completed After Four Years Of Development

Nier: Automata HD Texture Pack Mod Completed After Four Years Of Development

Nier: Automata has a loyal PC playerbase despite the action-RPG’s brief Steam review-bomb period that happened at the end of March earlier this year. Steam users were upset that visual upgrades were still absent from the game many years after its release. Square Enix and PlatinumGames acknowledged these issues and announced a newfound effort to bring the much-needed enhancements to Steam at some undisclosed point in the future. Good thing the modding community is so generous because an amazing Nier: Automata HD Texture Pack got its final major update over the weekend after four years of development. 

GPUnity, the mind behind the HD Texture Pack, posted the simple, but important, reason for why they worked tirelessly on the mod: “NieR: Automata is one of my favourite games. Unfortunately, it suffers from some blurry textures that hurt the presentation. My goal is to provide a natural restoration to the low-res textures, maintaining the intended look.” 

The final update solidifies GPUnity’s meticulous work on over 300 textures. There is a warning for small performance drop, but GPUnity also provided a version of the HD Texture Pack for players with lower-end systems. You can watch the latest video about the graphical improvements above.

Resident Evil Village Beginner's Tips And Tricks | Guide

Resident Evil Village is available now and many are preparing to start their journey as Ethan Winters. For those getting ready to take on the latest Capcom horror adventure, there are a few things you need to know before diving in. Luckily, we're here to help. Here are our Resident Evil Village tips and tricks! 

If you're familiar with Resident Evil, then you already know there will be puzzles to solve and enemies to slay. We've got a few helpful puzzle guides here and here, but what about more generalized tips? The good news is that there really is no "wrong" way to play, but there are a few pointers on how to make your time in this creepy journey a little more efficient and fully optimized. 

Whether you're in the village, in the castle, or in the later parts of the story, you'll see certain areas on your map that are either blue or red. Red means there are parts of a certain area that you haven't explored completely. This is great to pay attention to, because some of the items found can be a little hidden. You might need to crouch down to find it, or break glass to get to it, but the goal should be to turn all of the red areas blue. Once blue, you know you've cleared it and you're good to move on.

The Top 10 PlayStation 5 Games

"What games should I get for my PlayStation 5?" This is the question we've been asked the most since Sony's new generation of gaming arrived last November. People want to see what games are the best showpieces of PlayStation 5's power, and also which ones take their beloved medium to new heights. Although the PlayStation 5 is still in its infancy, it has already amassed a nice library of games, including a few titles that you can't play anywhere else.

The Game Informer staff has selected 10 games that we consider to be the PlayStation 5's absolute best. Over time, this article will be updated with the latest releases that we think crack the top 10.

Please note that while the list below contains 10 entries, we aren’t ranking them. If a game has made it this far (and managed to stay here), it’s a must-play, period. As such, we’ll be listing entries in reverse chronological order. Also, with future updates, you’ll find a rundown of previous entries at the bottom of the list. While those titles have gotten bumped over time, they are still all great games in their own right and worth exploring if you’re already caught up on the latest hits.

How To Solve Resident Evil Village Abandoned Stone Statue Puzzle | Guide

How To Solve Resident Evil Village Abandoned Stone Statue Puzzle | Guide

Resident Evil Village has a few puzzles that players will encounter, including one that involves stone statues. This one is tricky at first, but it's definitely one of those that once it clicks? It clicks. Without further ado, here is what you need to know in order to solve the Resident Evil Village abandoned stone statue puzzle. 

Getting out of Lady Dimitrescu's castle is.. a pain in the butt. You've got murderous vampires, you've got hallways that all look the same, decrepit floors that also want to kill you because life sucks. It's a lot. Luckily, the puzzles don't have to be an added frustration for those that may be looking for some help so that they can carry on with the (amazing) story. 

For this particular puzzle, you'll find it on the second floor of the castle, an area you will be annoyingly familiar with during your time in Village. The area you need to be in is called the Hall of Ablution, a place that you'll find once crossing the courtyard after exiting the main hall. There is a door to the right of the courtyard, make it up towards that and you'll find a set of stairs. Follow the stairs up, go down the hallway and enter the third door on your left. 

How To Solve Resident Evil Village Bell Puzzle | Guide

How To Solve Resident Evil Village Bell Puzzle | Guide

Resident Evil Village is here and it wouldn't be a new game in the iconic Capcom horror franchise if there weren't a few puzzles to power through. For those attempting to solve the bell puzzle in Castle Dimitrescu, there are a few things you need to know. To help, here is our Resident Evil Village bell puzzle in the Atelier room guide. 

This particular puzzle is in the Atelier you will come across in Lady Dimitrescu's massive castle. This will require you to find five hidden bells, a task that you'll see when you find a half-written note on the painting atop an easel in the Atelier room. The note will advise Ethan Winters (poor guy) to ring all five bells at once. I know how that sounds, daunting right? Don't worry, you don't actually have to ring them all at the same time, that would be impossible. Instead, you'll hit each bell and this will cause the torch on the top of each to light up. You can trigger the torch at the top being lit up by either hitting it with a melee attack or with a bullet from your preferred gun. It's pretty simple, you just have to actually find the bells first. That's where we come in.

This Resident Evil Village Mod Transforms Lady Dimitrescu Into Thomas The Tank Engine

This Resident Evil Village Mod Transforms Lady Dimitrescu Into Thomas The Tank Engine

Where there is the ability to mod, there is Thomas the Tank Engine. It's a tradition at this point, so when good 'ol Theodore made it into the latest Resident Evil, no one can really claim to be surprised. That's right; a new Resident Evil Village mod has arrived from the short demo and this time it transforms Lady Dimitrescu (Big Tall Vampire Lady) into Thomas the Tank Engine. 

If you follow my weekly Mod Corner column, you'll know I frequent Nexus Mods to an obsessive degree. This one particular gaming take, however, is the one I was looking for. It's even better than the Barney one I shared yesterday for Village that brings in the world's friendliest dinosaur into the mix. 

The mod is simple (and free). It's a simple reskin of Alcina Dimitrescu to remake her face into the frightening likeness of Thomas the Tank Engine. It's pretty easy to use, you're just going to want to make sure you have the Fully Mod Manger for RE8 and JT's mod to replace the daughters with Lady D herself. Obviously, this mod will be undergoing changes once the game fully launches, but for now? Enjoy this sweet gameplay video of Lady Thomas the Tank in action:
