Archive for August, 2013



Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. Sorry about the delay as I am currently on holiday tour – California & The Golden West. Already been to Los Angeles, Phoneix, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, Flagstaff.

I did some research on Google to see if there was any news on the next-gen Resident Evil game. 
After disappointing sales on RE6 and Revelations, Capcom has FINALLY reviewed fan’s feedback, concerning on where the video game franchise is leading to. 
If Capcom did not take immediate action on changing the elements of the series, the Resident Evil video game franchise would be cancelled unexpectedly if the classical survival horror did not blend in properly like the retro RE games in the past. After careful consideration, Capcom confirms they are hard at work with RESIDENT EVIL 7 (currently in development) and wants to be ‘core fan-based’, promises the series WILL return back to what was with the scary, blood and gore theme that has driven the series to worldwide popularity.

Let’s hope Capcom does not screw RE7, hoping they keep their promise this time.
Will update you guys on the latest upcoming RESIDENT EVIIILLLL!

Take care everyone and Happy Labour Day Weekend America!

Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog… It is now the beginning of August 2013, still no news on Capcom rebooting the entire game franchise or their next main series, even though rumours have suggested a possibly of the series continuing to RESIDENT EVIL 7 when it was a secret reveal towards E3 2013.. however this news has been confirmed ‘false’ by the Capcom team. But on the other hand, Capcom did say RESIDENT EVIL will or maybe be heading towards a ‘full reboot’, only if Revelations HD makes a good impression by fans. So today I will review the game that I have finished this week, apologies it took so long, as I was busy with other work. Please read my personal thoughts on the game below:

“My personal impressions of the game would be that even though Revelations in HD for the Xbox 360 did well in the video games market, selling about 900,000 digital copies worldwide, (including all the video game consoles the HD digital copy was ported on) and was Capcom’s BIGGEST seller game of all time, but my deepest concerned was the game did score an average rating rather than a great rating… not perfect as many survival horror gamers hoped for that this game would be a success. For example; as I was playing the game,  there was some dark and scary situations between missions, where players had very limited amount of ammo and health pick-ups to ‘survive the horror’ lurking behind every corner. But as the campaign was half way or at the near end, it started to lack off the horror abit. One thing I liked was a cruiser-mansion like setting, which was pretty cool. 

Graphics was okay, was worth it being transformed in HD format; good facial textures/expressions.  

The soundtracks in the game were boring, did not deliver that ‘creepy,spooky’ feeling!”                                                                                                      

 So I have come to my conclusion/summary of my review of the game;

The Good -:

  • Has a cruiser-like-mansion plot setting, which reminds you of the dark/spooky Spencer Mansion.
  • Nice cut-scene scenarios.
  • The portable version via Ninetendo 3DS was ported and re-released in HD for today’s 7th-gen game consoles.
  • Has some scares between missions, with a mixture of some suvirval/horror/action elements. 
The Bad-:
  • Lame story.
  • Was NOT classical survival-horror as Capcom mentioned. (They should bring Shinji Makami back as he was and still is the ‘maker of survival horror!’ Without him… Resident Evil does not ‘feel or experience that same classical survival-horror’, which he brought the franchise and his marvellous project work to fame around the world decades ago).
  • Weaponry customization system was not good.
  • Controls are dodgy, felt awkward playing on the X360.
  • The Raid Mode was rubbish, was a non-functional feature in the game.
  • Terrible Soundtracks.
Overall Rating – 6/10 (FAIR!)
