Resident Evil: Revelations Reveals Demo

By John Walker on May 16th, 2013.

Games of tag get serious with the undead involved.

I can see you, sat there, your forehead resting on your spread finger and thumb, as you stare into the blankness. You’re in a dilemma (great cars). You perhaps want to play Resident Evil: Revelations, but you played Operation Raccoon City and you still have the dreams. Lift your weary face! I am here to help! There’s now a demo.

Drown With The Ship: Resident Evil Rev’s Horror Heritage

By Nathan Grayson on April 27th, 2013.

Wait! Have you seen this map? It's really cool!

I don’t think I’m being particularly controversial when I say Resident Evil hasn’t been scary in a long, long, long time. Resident Evil 4 (abysmal PC port aside, sadly) was a great action game, Resident Evil 5 was an offensively inoffensive action game, and Resident Evil 6 should be illegal. But Resident Evil Revelations actually garnered pretty strong marks on handhelds, and I think I’m starting to understand why. The ship looks suitably confined, the monsters aren’t simply regular people whose heads explode into evil spaghetti sometimes, and the game apparently attempts to leverage the natural human fear of drowning.

Not RE6, Maybe Better – Resident Evil: Revelations

By Nathan Grayson on January 23rd, 2013.

Are they still residents if they're on a boat? Maybe they should rebrand it Transient Evil.

My PC can do many things for me, but – aside from its complete inability to provide me with the authentic human connections I so desire – the main thing it’s missing is Resident Evil 6. Maybe that’s not such a bad thing, however, because I’ve heard through Consoletopia’s living room wire-tangle of a grapevine that Resident Evil 6 is such a bad thing. If Capcom can clean it up before it makes its way over to our neck of the woods in March, more power to it. But, if RE6 ends up leaving a bilious gulp of disappointment in our guts, Resident Evil: Revelations might just be our best shot at feeling good as new. It was originally a Nintendo 3DS game, of all things, but it’s one of the strongest the Resident Evil series has seen in years. Seriously. And there are boats! Trailer’s after the break.
