Resident Evil Revelations: The Extended Trailer

Amidst the ceaseless torrent of video game news that has come with TGS, I seem to have missed the game that (prospectively) makes me happy to have bought a 3DS: Revelations. Apparently the video caused a bit of a stir, with criticism being leveled at a character, prominently featured, named "Rachel." I'm guessing this had to do largely with her own "prominent features" - what appears to be a zombie attack was no doubt the collective pulling into orbit of the undead - as well as hair that appeared to be carefully sculpted to be as obstructive as possible. Silliness aside, the storyline of her character is a bit fuller this time around, in between bouts of "oh Jesus Christ, it's the undead" action. I won't spoil the fun for those who haven't seen the trailer - though the original, shorter version does heavily imply what you're about to see - but it does indeed answer one lingering question about this mysterious "Rachel."

Despite the fact that I've never been terribly hot on the Resident Evil series, I'd be lying if I said that Revelations wasn't a 3DS selling point for me. There's an obnoxious lack of survival horror on handhelds; Silent Hill: Origins was serviceable - I definitely enjoyed it for what it was - but I've found little else to whet my appetite. One might make the case that due to the small screen and "on the go" style of gaming, handheld simply doesn't lend itself well to the immersive, solitary experience of survival horror. Well I say "balls" to that - as does my wallet, capitalist jackals. There are zombies that need felling, and whether at home, at the bus stop, or waiting for my prescription at the local pharmacy, I have every intent of being death's agent.

So that's what the T-virus does to your hair; scary! I want this game, but really don't have any interest in the 3DS (The 3D makes me nauseous). Hopefully it'll appear on the Vita...please!

Wtf? No wonder she died, she can't see anything!

Sach said:

Survivors generally aren't dead, Jill.

Also, the suspense of the trailer was sort of ruined because I wanted that woman to die just so I wouldn't have to look at that ridiculous hairdo anymore. At first I thought it was a hat or a burka or something.

Hmmm. Perhaps her hair is a nest for a baby chocobo...Nah. That would make it more practical.

@Rahzen: LOL. I was trying to think of a way to describe this... thing... and you've nailed it.

Kudos, hombre.

ugh you do realise you can turn off the 3D and still enjoy the game right?

Gaijinguy said:

@uru: You're awesome! Thanks for the opinion!

@ironmouse: I'm aware of that, but it would seem wasteful to buy a 3D system and not use the 3D. I'd rather buy a system where all its main features are actually of use to me. That said, if the games are great (regardless of 3D), then I might reconsider.

Is it just that 3D in general make you nauseous? Just so it doesn't sound like a stupid question, 3D movies have never given me problems, but when i played the demo 3DS, it did give me a headache and slight nausea -- part of the reason i was hesitant to buy one... The thought of paying for an (for all practical purposes) useless feature didn't sit right with me either. Needless to say, i bought one, and gradually got used to the 3D effect -- it no longer gives me problems, even at maximum settings.

If 3D itself is causing problems, you most likely out of luck. Still, the system has potential -- it's also worth noting that Nintendo is toying with the idea of 2D-only games -- but to be honest, i'd wait for a few more solid releases before forking over them money.

@SuperSwede: Thanks for asking! I also tried a demo model of the 3DS, and it was then I discovered the unwanted effects of the 3D (I assume, unless it was something to do with the shop's lighting). Like you, films in 3D have never given me any grief. Since you got used to it, then perhaps I will too.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
