Episodic gaming! Get the whole family in, crowding round the computer at 9 o’clock on a Monday night, excited to see how they’ll resolve last week’s cliffhanger. Did Wilfred…? And surely Fanny won’t…? Who swiped the Super Shotgun anyway? Oh, if only! Often it’s more like waiting for the next Only Fools And Horses Christmas Special, trying to remember if they were rich or poor last time, and who’s even still alive. Did Del Boy survive that fall through the bar? Was it all a coma dream?
Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be properly TV-episodic. Capcom have announced that they’ll release the spooky shooter in four weekly episodes in “early 2015”, which is quite novel and exciting.
