A heads-up (well, if I can stop staring at that gif, of course).



Revelations 2 is very disappointing on a technical level. This aside, it is probably one of the most strangest Capcom/Resident evil games I've played. It tries to do some really random stuff, at times, and I honestly have to say it surprised me. There's just an overall disconnection between what's happening, what you're doing and what people are saying that I couldn't really understood what was the director's idea with this new take on Revelations. But I don't say this in the bad sense, as craziness has always been something present in Capcom games. I found it pleasant, and while the core material never really changes much, you're doing something from one moment and then do some weird shit the next one; it doesn't help (but again, in the good sense) that every structured chapter tries to be radically different from each other.



Also, there's tons of fanservice thrown at the player, with hilarious quotes coming from Barry and Claire. While they didn't make me laugh, I did chuckle a bit in happiness. They're campy, but never overstays their welcome. Also, achievement/trophies have some really bad puns added in its titles.



I was just playing the extra content (from the physical version), and I'm really surprised, as, once again, they shook the core game and added some random stuff (not to spoil anything at all, but I'm HUNTING. As in, hunting stuff for eating). Seriously, who came up with this?



You should definitively play it and give me your opinion. Also, Barry is a badass, although I more often that not had to be playing as their partner because, on a negative note, you can't find secret items unless you go playing with the side partner (which acts like a walking GENESIS from the original Revelation). A minor problem, though!

I'm definitely gonna check it out soon. Maybe once I finish off Hotline Miami and Type-0 I'll make RER2 my next game.

Just how bad are the technical problems, though? Bad enough to hinder gameplay, or just kind of unpleasant to look at?

Oh, nothing that really gets in the way of the gameplay (aside from some moments, on which things get ugly), but if you stand idle for a bit, everything kinda gets sorted out and then you can play seamless. It is very ugly to look at, though, especially when the game starts stuttering out of nowhere.

Also, frame-rate drops on pre-rendered cutscenes, but hey. At least that's not gameplay!

Oh, okay. A little jank never hurt anyone. I'll just pretend I'm playing EDF!

BTW, Kurayami mode was pretty cool! The Assignment was much more atmospheric that way. I wonder if they'll do it again in The Consequence, which - as cool as The Assignment was - I hope will be more action oriented.

More than that, though, I'm really looking forward to playing as The Keeper.

Considering Kidman keeps her gun, I'd say that's a given.

Oh, how I've missed you.

Well, The Assigment beaten. My total time was 2:51:41, with a total of 8 deaths. Also managed to find all the collectibles on the first go (not very difficult, to be honest, this is probably one of the rare instances where I find everything without a guide on my first try).



So...it wasn't that short, or at least, it didn't feel that short to me. I enjoyed my time with it, and it has some nice twists and connections to the main game. Also a nice middle-boss sequence, albeit way too easy. Mikami wasn't kidding when he said everything would be more stealth-oriented, and while that's a bit disappointing to me, everything else was ace, so I can't complain.



Given its lenght, I'd suggest you go beat it now! I'm going to try KURAYAMI mode, which I'm wondering what is it about, because I doubt it's the same as AKUMU mode.

Ooooooh. From the name I'd guess it's something like Invisible Enemy Mode from RE.

on 12 March 2015

Well, you're not far off; it's actually something more interesting! It doesn't seem to be as challenging as AKUMU mode, but it is an extremely nice touch nevertheless. :P

I'll let you discover it by yourself!

on 12 March 2015

You know what, I'm only going to say that The Assigment should have had Kurayami mode from the very beginning, if not the default difficulty. I've enjoyed it so much with it, and I've actually had some real tense moments, unlike the other difficulty. The stealth really shines with it, and I am 100% sure that this is the way Mikami had it planned from the start.

on 13 March 2015

Interesting! I'm curious to see what it's about. I just finished the story mode of Hotline Miami 2, so I'll probably check out The Assignment tonight or this weekend.

on 13 March 2015

Already? I heard HM2 was much longer than its predecessor. Did you like it as much? Did you find any flaws?

on 13 March 2015

Yeah. It's not that much longer in terms of chapters (24 vs. 19), but the levels are much longer and harder.

I have to say, I didn't like it quite as much because it tries to do too much and loses focus, yet at the same time it feels more restrictive. In the original there were just two characters who were exactly the same, but you could choose which mask you wanted to wear and thus which bonus you wanted. This time there are many characters, but the way it's done you actually end up with less choice about how to tackle the level.

But that said, it's still very good! I found myself liking it more toward the end than I did in the beginning/middle, so it may grow on me some more once I start trying to chase high scores.

The DLC so far is...interesting. It has an Alan Wake vibe (last thing I would have expected!) although too much stealth-focused for my taste. Only one hour playing, so I can't comment further.

I'd be playing it myself right now but for Hotline Miami.

on 10 March 2015

Oh right, the March Terror has arrived it seems!

Be prepared, because Revelations 2 is due to ten days!

on 10 March 2015

No kidding. I'm trying to figure out which to get next: RE:R2, FF Type-0, Bladestorm, or Bloodborne.

on 10 March 2015

I'd say Bloodborne without a doubt, but given how timesucker that game can be, if the rest of the Souls games are of some indication, I'd say you would do better if you leave that game for the end.

on 10 March 2015

That's kind of what I'm thinking, too. The FFXV demo has me leaning toward Type-0, but the fact that no one else cares about it makes me want to go with Bladestorm out of sheer pity.

Decent! Sounds like that season pass was money well spent.

on 10 March 2015

You support online passes? For shame!

on 10 March 2015

Also, it seems that I'll be missing the crossbow, a lot :(

on 10 March 2015

I don't believe I've ever bought one before, but I have infinite faith in Mikami.

I figured the crossbow wouldn't make an appearance. They have to differentiate it from the main game somehow.
