Playdate: We're livestreaming 'The Evil Within' on PS4!

Welcome, ladygeeks and gentlenerds, to the new era of gaming. The one where you get to watch, and comment, as other people livestream gameplay from new-gen consoles. Because games! They’re fun!

Are you ready for a few scares? We hope so because we’re going to be streaming The Evil Within today. If you aren’t familiar with Shinji Mikami’s name, you’ve almost assuredly played his games — Mikami is the mastermind behind the Resident Evil franchise, and, specifically, he was the director on perhaps its best moment, Resident Evil 4. Since then he’s been doing a little of this and some of that, but nothing quite horror related. That changes with The Evil Within, the first effort from his Tango Gameworks studio. How’d it turn out? Check back at starting at 7 p.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. Pacific as we go in blind on PlayStation 4. Since you folks liked our Alien: Isolation stream as much as you did, instead of getting a head start we’re going to be playing from the very beginning and have no idea what to expect. Surely there’ll be a few shrieks involved. Have you even looked at the screenshot above?

[For the record, I’m playing The Evil Within on a PlayStation 4, using a retail copy (download) provided by Bethesda. I’m streaming the game over wired internet using the PlayStation 4 Twitch app. All that to say, “This game will likely look prettier and run more smoothly on your home equipment. Streaming conditions vary!”]
