I never thought I'd say this, but Capcom, you're doing it right.

Since there seems to be quite a bit more discussion regarding the game in the "What are you playing?" thread than I had anticipated, I figured it deserved its own topic. Feel free to discuss gameplay, plot, etc, here. Spoiler tags aren't necessary, but may be preferred for those who have not beaten the game yet.

It's a shame I don't have a 3DS as I'm hearing good things about it. But I think Revelations would be the only thing I'd have on it right now, which isn't really worth the cost of the handheld lol Also I'm still mad at Capcom for canceling Mega Man Legends 3 >_>

Who isn't?

Resident Evil - Jill's Ass.

I'll give it a try if my one friend with a 3DS gets it and let's me borrow it.

I am super addicted to Raid Mode.

I haven't touched the campaign since I beat it.

Loved the story. Wish Capcom would do more of this "episodic" stand alone style game, instead of trying to weave this long and contrived storyline with minor details pulling all the games together.

The ability to tell a story, have interesting characters, and not have to tie them into a mess of continuity is great. The ability to not tie EVERYTHING into a sole character at all times (Wesker) improves the storytelling exponentially.

I'm a bit worried for RE6.I'm betting Capcom is going to thumb its nose at Revelations and not include a Raid mode. Seriously, Raid Mode is like what Mercenaries should've been.

I enjoyed the episodic nature of the story, but man, the actual plot does not make a bit of sense when you look back on it. Not that Resident Evil has ever been known for coherent, or even comprehensible, storytelling, but Revelations is just all over the place, and I suspect it may have had something to do with the fact that they designed each chapter to end on a cliffhanger.

Not that it really matters in the long run, because I honestly would be surprised if Revelations is ever even acknowledged in future titles, though Jessica may yet be the "bitch" Chris refers to in the RE6 trailer. I thought Jessica's Report would help to clarify some of the murkier (no pun intended) aspects of the plot, but it only serves to make things even more confusing.

And if Raid Mode is not included in RE6, I will shoot somebody.

What is Raid mode and why should I be hoping it's in RE6? lol

Its a pretty simple plot, not sure whats so incomprehensible about it.

Then again, I used to play MGS games.

If you take it as face value, sure, but once you really start digging into it, very little of it actually makes sense. Granted, that can be said of all Resident Evil games.

Think of it as an evolution of Mercenaries, but with no time limit, and the addition of loot.

#11 Kamikaze Kay on 7 years ago

That I like. I was never super fond of Mercenaries, cause it's just a survival game mode and I don't find those fun, but this could be pretty cool.

#12 Archelon on 7 years ago

It's a bit more objective based than Mercs, but only in a few of the stages. It's still essentially killing as many enemies as you can within an environment lifted from the single player campaign, but the real draw is unlocking all sorts of weapons and weapon upgrades the more you play.

Your character levels up as you progress, too, but it doesn't have any effect on their abilities, health, etc. It just allows you to use weapons that are the same, or near the same, level as you. The weapon levels aren't the only thing to take into consideration when loading up for a stage, though.

Even if a weapon may be at a higher level than one you currently own, it may have fewer upgrade slots. For example, I had a level 12 shotgun with five upgrade slots and a level 19 shotgun with only one.

Finally hit level 40 in Raid. Onwards to 50!

What I've realized. Raid mode (even in the name) is basically the combat and upgrade system of a Resident Evil MMORPG.

#14 Archelon on 7 years ago

I have now officially put more hours into Raid Mode than the main campaign of Resident Evil Revelations.

#15 Pliskin on 7 years ago

Level 50. Now to finish Abyss and help the g/f catch-up, lol.

Snake Eater 3d on the horizon though. Not sure how far I'll make it.
