RIP Wes Craven (1939-2015)

Sad news of the passing of American film director, writer, producer, and actor, Wesley Earl “Wes” Craven (2nd August, 1939–30th August, 2015). Wes Craven will perhaps be best remembered for the creation of the A Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise, featuring the character Freddie Krueger.

Additionally, Wes Craven directed all four of the films in the Scream series (arguably a postmodern take on the slasher film genre), featuring the character of Ghostface. Amongst his other films are such titles as The Hills Have Eyes (1977), The Last House on the Left (1972), The Serpent and the Rainbow (1988), The People Under the Stairs (1991), Vampire in Brooklyn (1995), Cursed (2005), Red Eye (2005), and My Soul to Take (2010).

RIP Wes Craven (1939-2015). Thank you for the pleasure you brought through your work, and especially for all the scares! You really did give us some powerful nightmares (and more than one sleepless night!). God bless.

There were a lot of criticism with Quiet’s “clothes”. But it seems that there an option of change the costumes of the character before missions, and I have a very good surprise with this.

I know that the official design is still the stupid bikini with military belts, but you at least have the option of play with a NPC with more suitable uniform.

But we were promised there’s an explanation!  Now they decide that she can dress in something close to what a real person might wear into battle?  It’s almost like even the game developers don’t believe the “explanation”.

Oh well, I guess we all officially shall find out soon!

(Edit: We have been notified that the outfit only becomes available after completing the game - thus it apparently represents less faith in the explanation for Quiet’s “canon” costume but rather a belief that people feel being able to give her real clothes is a suitable reward for finishing the game. h/t: trashgolem )
