Dear gaming diary,
Wednesdays are my favourite day of the working week because I get to play scary games and/or watch my colleague Jess get scared whilst playing scary games, which always makes me laugh. I always walk out of our House of Horror streams feeling bright and happy!
Resident Evil: Revelations
Oh how I wish for the Resident Evil series to return to its old formula. Playing the GameCube REmake recently only amplified these feelings. As a long time Resident Evil fan, I was quite excited to try out Resident Evil: Revelations for House of Horrors as I had been told that it makes more of a return to the game’s roots – a very good thing.
My first thought upon starting the game was that Jill Valentine had received quite a makeover! She was nearly unrecognisable to me. The second thing I noticed was that there were a few awkward chest/butt camera shots which I found rather unnecessary. Pretty sure that never happened in the old Resident Evil.
Chris Redfield himself wasn’t excused from gratuitous body shots either. A few streamers pointed out that he looked like he had been on steroids. I will not comment on that, although the photos do speak for themselves (LOL).
But alas, the Resident Evil universe is one that I adore so much that I am happy to keep learning about the characters and seeing the perils they pull themselves through. Perhaps that is why I am such a sucker for the series and will give it so many chances to prove itself once again with each new game.
I shall continue to play Resident Evil: Revelations and will update when something exciting happens!
No Ragnarok Online 2 was imbibed that night.
