It’s time to return to the infamous Mansion that launched the survival horror genre. The definitive version of the critically acclaimed masterpiece Resident Evil is available for digital download across North America for $19.99 beginning today.
He’s back! Fan favorite and classic S.T.A.R.S. member Barry Burton will be returning in Resident Evil Revelations 2. Headed for the remote prison island in search of his missing daughter, Moira Burton, Barry meets brand new character Natalia Korda, a little girl who has a strange power that allows her to sense enemies and hidden items. Using this skill alongside Barry’s proven combat abilities, players will need to alternate between the two to survive the mysterious island and find Moira.
Capcom, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, last week confirmed Resident Evil® Revelations 2 is in development for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC. Resident Evil Revelations 2 will be available across North America and Europe in Early 2015.
It was announced today that Capcom will release Resident Evil Revelations in North America for Nintendo 3DS on February 7, 2012. According to Capcom the game will feature a brand new story, new characters, and new locations for the Resident Evil series. Being that this is a 3DS release there will be some form of 3D graphics represented.
Big news though is that gamers who pre-order with GameStop will receive a unique Resident Evil Revelations 3DS case with an image that will change when taken out into the sunlight. It’s a pretty nifty case and I’m curious how the case changes image in daylight. I’ve only ever seen color changing toys in water and those 3D packages where you can twist the object and see a 3D image, never a image that changes in sunlight.
If you’re looking to pickup this game and want some extra protection for your 3DS, this sounds like a good deal.
”Set between the events of Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5, the all new episodic narrative sees fan favorite characters Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield paired with new BSAA members Parker Luciani and Jessica Sherawat on their search to discover the truth about the Veltro terrorist organization and the T-Abyss virus outbreak. Players will need to make use of the unique Nintendo 3DS touch screen to solve puzzles and switch between weapons as they try to survive the horror that awaits them around every corner. Environments will need to be scanned with the Genesis Scanner to reveal hidden items and identify enemies. With more characters, brand new enemies and conspiracies still to be unveiled Resident Evil Revelations promises an authentic Resident Evil experience when it launches on Nintendo 3DS in February.”
September for me officially kicks off the fall gaming season, some of the biggest games of the year will be coming out in the coming months, so here is my personal top 5 games for you to get this September. Obviously some of you guys won’t agree with me 100% but I really don’t care. All kidding aside, I think this list takes in all what is going to be good this month. These will be in order of the games I want the most with number 1 being the game that I really want this September.
So I kick this list off with a sports game, so already you guys know that I am a big sports fan. Soccer not being favorite sport to watch but I love the video games. This month we have the release of EA’s next entry in their long running Soccer simulation series, FIFA Soccer. This game looks to improve in all aspects of lasts years fantastic football sim. The game has so many new gameplay refinements that listing them would take hours. The developers really did an amazing job with this game and I am definitely adding this one to my library come September 27th.
The next game on my list is probably my favorite game from the Nintendo Gamecube, Resident Evil 4. This game was the perfect mix of survival horror genre and the action/adventure genre. I remember playing this game numerous times in my high school days and now its coming back in glorious HD. This game is being released to celebrate the fifteenth anniversary of the Resident Evil franchise and in my opinion they chose the right game to illustrate all that is good from this franchise. The only downfall is that this game is coming out on the same day as Gears of War 3, so I’m guessing a lot of people will look right past it when it hits the shelves on September 20th, which is very unfortunate.
This game might surprise some people by being on my list and it could be even more surprising that I put it at number 3. Well the reason why it is on my list, is that there are not many hardcore games for Kinect and this japanese developed game could show other developers what they could do on the platform. I have no idea how this game will end up playing like when I use it with my Kinect, but the possibility to be able to play a survival horror game on my Kinect makes me want to try to like no mater how bad it might end up being. I give props to the guys making this game for taking a risk that might end up being a total hit or miss.
If Gears of War 3 came out when it was supposed to it would be at the number one spot, but by now we have all had enough of the videos, screens and betas for the game. All I want now is for the game to be in my console. There is really nothing new I can say about the game since everything has pretty much all been said, but the level of detail in the characters and the environments make me want to drool all over my screen. The game by now is done and has started to be printed so unless a huge natural disaster ends up destroying the factory where its being printed, the game will be on store shelves on the 20th.
Topping off the charts is NHL 12. I am a huge hockey fan and every year I anticipate the next hockey game released by EA. This year they promise to add a whole bunch of new gameplay refinements to make the game feel even better. I am going to be getting this game on the 12th bright and early, so I can start my Be a GM mode with my team, the Montreal Canadiens. This game is such a blast to play with friends in either the versus mode or in the EA Sports Hockey League. After playing the demo, I am even more excited for the release of the game. I hope to see you guys on the ice on the 12th and who knows, maybe the Habs will win the Stanley Cup this year in the game and in real life, how amazing would that be ? The drive for 25 starts on the 12th!
