I have played both TEW and TEW2 and I never understood why reviewers preferred the second game over the first. I genuinely enjoyed both games but TEW had a certain charm to it where TEW2 lacked.
What's on your mind?
Which one was the funniest to play?
What do you think? Is there gonna be a third The Evil Within?
Very good game
Does anyone else think Leslie is really cute, because I do😍
Guys, do u think there'll be Evil within 3?
why i can't play evil within 1 chapter 8 on xbox 360?
When I hear this song...I think about me being trapped in this ugly world ....and the only moment that I escape is whenever I dream ....then is when I go to the other world..the ordinary world...MY ordinary world...a world that is divided by our ugly world ...and thats a place where I enjoy my life...but then it's time to wake up and while I'm in the ordinary world suddenly there are long dirty hands coming from the gate and from the ugly world trying to take me back...but no matter how hard I try they take me away...and then I wake up sad saying to myself that "I won't cry for yesterday...theres an ordinary world...and as I try to make my way to the ordinary world ...I will learn to survive..."
It's Random I know but...it's just what I feel...I'm not depressed if that's what you think and I don't have anything inside me that I can't get out but....it's just...I just really need something different in this world ...something interesting..something...out of the ordinary ..something that will change the meaning of life... science...human thinking...human actions etc....I don't know I'm weird....
Is it possible to delete a post on here? Just a question, not for any particular reason, but I've noticed it's ... not possible? You normally can on other medias, so I'm just wondering if I'm missing anything.
Okay so, this has nothing to do with The Evil Within, I just had nowhere else to post it because ... no-one on TEWW knows who I actually am. I need to vent, even if it's to random strangers. I don't mind if you skip this, in fact, I'd rather you just ignored this post ... I just had to write it down somewhere, maybe someone can relate to this, and give me some hints or tips, some helpful advise.
So, here's the thing; makeup. In case I haven't told you, I am actually a 17 year old girl (turning 18 in august) who is a full-blown Atheist, and yet, I attend some dumb Catholic school (not my choice, you see, my mother is Catholic). At my school (I'm in year 12), there is a rule against makeup. Mind you, nearly every girl at this school wears makeup. A lot of us feel like shit without it, and the longer you wear it, the more addictive it becomes. I have been wearing makeup since I was 12, and don't blame my parents, because they have barely been in my life since I was 6. I'm also a foster kid, so I moved around a lot, from house to house, from family to family. Most of the families were assholes, and is hence why my self confidence is so unnaturally low. Most girls feel like they're not good enough, they're not pretty enough, but many people have expressed their negative opinions about me, which makes it harder for me to believe you when you tell me, I'm 'not' ugly. I hope this makes sense, I'm not the best at explaining things.
I got into the habit of wearing makeup at a very young age, and after little time, I grew very addicted. I felt more confident with it, even though I barely knew how to use it at that stage, and after a little while longer, I ended up attaching myself to it so much, that I never took it off. I slept with it on, I bathed with it, I barely washed my face because I feared the makeup would run out, I wanted to make it last. My makeup was very heavy, I wore bright red lipstick, heaps of mascara and lots of foundation and concealer. I was a complete and total mess by the age of 13.
When I moved into a different home, the carer I was with introduced me to different kinds of products, including; eyeliner, eyeshadow, bronzer and blush. Back then, fake eyelashes probably didn't exist. Or, at least I had never heard of them. It was 2014, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, it seems like many of you enjoy a good argument every now and then. I'm kidding, don't take that to heart, take a joke people. By this point, I'd started wearing mascara, eyeshadow, lipstick, (I didn't get how to use blush or bronzer so I didn't use that), foundation, concealer and eyeliner. My confidence felt like it was getting stronger, but in all honesty, it was dropping dramatically. The more makeup I used, the less confident I was to be seen without it. I guess few may say I was a 'slut', even though no guy was ever interested in this weird foster kid.
By the time I was 14, I moved into another home. This carer refused to let me wear makeup, and confiscated it completely. I was completely devastated, I was so attached to it, so lifeless without it, so very ruined and uncomfortable, embarrassed and unable to look at myself in the mirror. Eventually, because I was still new to the family, I tried to walk around and pretend like I didn't care, I decided to pretend I looked perfectly fine without makeup and that I wasn't at all humiliated or disgusted ... but I was, I really was. I eventually scrambled back to the cupboard and took back my mascara. It was the one thing I would not have continued living without. No, I doubt I would've committed suicide, don't panic. I just, would've started a war of some sort. Refused to leave the room, refused to leave the house, refused to go anywhere ... that kind of thing. A tantrum, in other words.
I started at the Catholic school in grade 8, and I wore my mascara. By grade 9, I had mascara and foundation (very cheap foundation). By grade 10, I had mascara, eyeliner, and foundation. By grade 11, I had mascara, eyeliner, foundation and concealer. By grade 12, I wore thick foundation, thick eyeliner, thick mascara, and believe me, I wore heaps of it. The school never said anything to me about it, until now. Just today, a teacher I've known since grade 8 has approached me and asked me to remove my makeup. She said; 'It's gotten way out of hand, you're wearing too much, it's too thick, you need to remove it.'
I laughed. Do they honestly think I would remove my makeup and willingly walk back to class and get on with the day? No fucking way. For those of you who can't understand why, believe me, it's the most difficult thing. It's like trying to quit smoking on the spot. It's almost impossible, you have to believe me. I am not confident enough. So, here we go, I started arguing with the deputy principal. I told her straight up; "No, there is no way you are going to see this face without makeup. Ever."
I am not even okay with taking SOME of it off. She did not say 'take some off', she literally said; 'Take it off'.
No way. No, fucking, way. There is absolutely no way you will make me take my makeup off. No.
So I agreed to sit in the office for the rest of the day, I will complete some of the work I am behind on. If that makes sense, but no, sitting in a chair quietly up the front of the office is not okay. I have sat in this spot many times before, and all of a sudden it's a problem now? I don't understand, what is their beef with me?? I have barely done anything wrong!! I've been wearing makeup since grade eight, and it's been heavy since the last term of grade 10 (because that's when I was going through some pretty heavy stuff), but they decide to bring it up NOW. That makes sense. God, I am so fucking angry right now!! They've got something against me, and I have no idea what I've done to deserve it. I feel like they're picking on me, but no-one can apparently see it. If you knew me in person, believe me you would agree. Even my friends know what's going on, and they are shocked. They all said the same thing I said. In fact, they even added things I hadn't thought out. It's all true, and it doesn't make sense. I just don't know what to do, I am breaking one simple rule, and it's not like I'm the only person here that is wearing heavy makeup. Believe me, I've seen three girls today wearing about as much makeup as I am, theirs is just ... not black, which is why it might look heavier. I don't see how it's fair, and I don't understand why they wouldn't just let me sit in the chair up the front of the office, I mean, as I said earlier, I've done it heaps of times before, and all of a sudden it's a problem now?
I guess I may have pushed it a little far by snapping at the teacher and saying; "Hey, well, why don't you take YOUR makeup off? Because, we're BOTH representing the school, and I'm not the one that has to meet parents face to face, that's you. So, how am I doing the damage here? I am pretty much invisible while I'm IN CLASS, which is MOST OF THE TIME.
I'm droning on. Sorry.
May I introduce, Amelie White.
Her first and only named appearence was in The Consequence. When having a close look in the police department, you can find some missing and wanted posters. One of them shows a wanted woman called Amelie White.
Knowing her face, you may recognize a painting in many places throughout the main game and the DLCs that shows a woman who looks very similar to her.
So assuming the woman at the painting is Amelie and her portrayal is in almost every house in Krimson, Elk River and Cedar Hill, she gotta be a famous person. Now what if I tell you that Amelie looks pretty similar to Emily Lewis from The Evil Within 2?
So let's say the former and wanted Amelie White disappeared one day and came back with the new identity of Emily Lewis to escape the police and who became the famous model that everyone got a painting of her.
Making the theory more clear, let's remember the basement in chapter four of The Evil Within. There was a photography studio and the photographs there reminds extremely at Stefano Valentini. It shows pictures of screaming people or close ups of their mouths. So he may lived in Elk River once. A newspaper at the beginning of The Evil Within wrote something about mutilated bodies found in Elk River. Who said it can't be Stefano's failed sculptures instead of Mobius' or Ruben's work?
We could assume that the criminal minds of Stefano and Amelie came together someday, being a villain duo. He could have helped her changing the identity from Amelie to Emily. As Lewis, she became populare and went together with Stefano to Krimson City where he could act out his lust for art. Maybe it was Amelie who even showed Stefano what he could become in the first place.
In fact we know almost nothing about Stefano's early life so it's at least a possibility.
Theory Enhancement 1:
Before going into the basement, you can see an image that shows a girl who looks very similar to Lily Castellanos. Maybe Stefano and Emily tried to get a baby but they couldn't for some reason. So they searched for someone to adopt and finally they found her. The pictures in the photography studio shows probably Sebastian, so he could have watched the Castellanos family for some time to get close to her. Maybe Stefano entered Union just because of Lily. To get her and take her out of STEM, becoming a family.
Theory Enhancement 2:
Leslie fled right into Stefano's house and not into the hospice as Jimenez assumed. It's almost a crazy idea but Leslie might have sensed Stefano's for STEM correspondent mind and felt like pulled to him somehow.
So you could say these are some basic ideas from The Evil Within, enlarged and filled into The Evil Within 2.
I hope you guys like my thoughts. Tell me what you think.
Which one u prefer:
The evil within 1 or 2... According to the gameplay animation?
Had a t-shirt printing project for class and immediately wanted TEW vibes for the shirt. Thank Ruvik for the inspiration.
We all know her but do we know who she is?
Tatiana Gutierrez, nurse in Beacon Mental Hospital and disappeared one day. She could have seen too much and got killed my Mobius for that or she may got connected with the STEM system but we saw her in STEM so she is rather connected to the system.
The Evil Within 2 implied some times that Tatiana is just inside Sebastian's head and the asylum in the first game plus Sebastian's office in the second is actually his unconsciousness and it would make sense. It's the place where Seb can upgrade himself, see deep memories (the slides) and so on (I know, it doesn't really fits in the first game). So Tatiana isn't real, she's Sebastian's imagination. That's why she was also in the new Union STEM.
So, if she's just in Sebastian's head, how could Kidman see her too and why should Seb see a Beacon Mental Hospital nurse?
Because it's not what I just told. Maybe because Tatiana has a very strong mind. Such a strong mind that she can't be affected by whoever is controlling STEM. Inside STEM nothing but will power and mental stable counts. Tatiana is that strong that she doesn't even got a physical body anymore. She's inside everyone's head, because everyone IS the STEM system. She is a ghost in the system. Nowhere and everywhere. Pure mentality.
Let's go further. Tatiana isn't only in Seb's mind, he's just one of the very less who survived Ruvik's STEM. So the reason why she's back in The Evil Within 2 is that Seb has kept her in mind same as he kept his part of himself that is captured inside STEM he shoots to free his soul. She's still inside his head but with good intentions.

What would happen , if Kidman didn't shot Joseph and he turned into a zombey? Would he help Sebastian or Ruvik?
[- Sebastian is a man of his world (unless he's in a situation where the only option is to lie). He is devoted to his family and to his job. He's caring, but he's strict. He won't back down, and he won't give in. He is strong, and that much is obvious, after all, Ruvik didn't get to him in the end. Sebastian has made mistakes in his life, and he understands that he's not the only person who makes mistakes ... to realise something like this is almost life saving. Sebastian doesn't lose hope, in his mind, there's always an answer, there's always a way out, there's always a way to solve a problem. Nothing is ever impossible. Sebastian is definitely someone I would look up to. -]
[- Joseph is the type of guy that doesn't let on exactly what he's thinking or feeling. Joseph isn't present throughout most of the game, so not much is learnt about him. You can find out some information in the notes Sebastian writes in his journal. Joseph is also devoted to his job, and also to his friends. He doesn't mean to be so weak, he doesn't mean to allow Ruvik to get into his head, and because of this self pity, I think that's what's making it easier for Ruvik to take control. Joseph, like all people, can be a little foolish sometimes, and the easiest answers are the ones he can't seem to find. Joseph is quick when it comes to combat, and he doesn't normally let anyone down. -]
[- Kidman is probably one of my least favorite characters, just after MOBIUS and that Stefano dude (who's in the second game). When I first played the game, I didn't understand why Kidman had tried to shoot Leslie, because I guess I was more interested in completing the game rather than stopping to read the notes and listen to what they were saying. I developed a soft spot for Leslie the first moment I laid eyes on him. He was cute, sweet, and so very delicate ... I instantly felt a strange urge to protect him (even though that wasn't really the point of the game). Julie and I would have definitely clashed if I was a character in this game. Then after some research, I found out why she did what she did, but it still was no excuse. Murder is murder, no matter the reason. She should know that, being a detective and all. Julie Kidman is stubborn, she's ignorant, and I think she has feelings for Sebastian (because she hints at it at the end of the game before the battle with Ruvik commences). Julie is one of those people who, when they set their minds on something, you can't change it without having a solid reason as to why the idea is stupid (if that makes sense). She looks pretty good in those heels and jeans, I must say. Other than that, I don't think I can say much more about her -]
[- As I mentioned earlier, as soon as I was introduced to Leslie, I developed a soft spot for him. He seemed so scared, so vulnerable, so small and helpless. I instantly fell for his charms. I will admit, that at one point I think I even had feelings for this character. Leslie was a beautiful creature, and I felt bad for him, especially after hearing the fact that he'd been through this all before. If I was a character in the game, I would not let Leslie leave my side. I would almost die if we ever got separated. I would do anything to protect him, I would even sacrifice myself. Leslie is obviously insane, but his past is tragic and hence why he is the way he is. Leslie finds most things inside Ruvik's head to be completely terrifying. I do believe that every time he screams, whether it's inside Ruvik's head or out in reality, Sebastian and Joseph hear that strange, painful sound. Leslie is definitely someone I would take a bullet for. -]
[- My absolute favorite character. As soon as I laid eyes on Ruvik, I thought, 'Holy f*ck, this guy is hideous!'. Yet, something about him made me curious, I wanted to know who he was, what happened to him, why was he trying to kill everyone? After some time, I found out. I learnt about his past, and I discovered why he was doing all this. As soon as I found out, I fell completely in love with him. I related to him. I have never gone through anything he has, but I know what it's like to lose someone you love. I know what it's like to feel that pain. I relate to the anguish, and I sure as hell know what it's like to be betrayed. Unlike Ruvik, I wasn't killed for rebelling against anyone. I was betrayed by almost everyone who walked into my life, I was lied to, used, and walked out on by everyone. Ruvik's past is something I can relate to as well, because my parents were slightly the same. My father locked me in my room most of the time, because he always had friends over, and because of all the bruises, he was ashamed and almost scared to be seen with me, in case someone became suspicious or worried about how I received so many strange bruises. Enough about that though, I'm droning on. Ruvik is definitely a powerful man, both physically and mentally. He doesn't back down, and nothing scares him. Ruvik doesn't care about what people think anymore, and he's grown stronger because of that. Ruvik may have an extremely unhealthy thirst for revenge, but his reasons are excusable. Maybe not to many others, but to me, I understand why he's doing what he's doing. Ruvik is an inspiration for a lot of us, and a lot of us wish we were exactly like him. Ruvik only wanted to have a normal life, and was killed as soon as he got the chance. If someone ripped a dream away that I'd had for so many years, a zombie apocalypse would be the nicest thing I'd do. I wouldn't tease my victims, I'd make sure their options were limited and almost impossible. I would kill them as soon as I believed they'd suffered enough. Maybe that's just it ... Ruvik can kill you by simply touching you, but maybe he didn't want a quick and simple death, he wanted us to suffer, to feel what he felt, and hence why we weren't killed instantly, or in the end anyway. Ruvik is important to me, and I'd do anything for him. Anything. I'd give in to him way too easily. Ruvik is definitely a God I would worship. -]
Have your say. Comment below and tell me what YOU see in these characters.
