Having played the heck out of the RE6 demo since last week, I've come away with many impressions -- some good, some not so good. As always, I will let Keanu Reeves the .gifs do the talking.

continuing the Chris vs. Leon debate... )

Aaaand that was more or less it. Oh yeah and there was that Jake guy but I THINK THIS ROUND SAFELY GOES TO CHRIS

I already posted this on Tumblr, but wth, I'll post it here, too, for reference.

My RE6 Ada Wong Conspiracy Theory -- because seriously? No one else has noticed these things? )

So, in a nutshell--

Capcom: LOOK GAIZ IT IS ADA

Me:




Also, I did a thing, because this is pretty much how I feel as I play through the REmake.

I AM A TTL ARTIST, Y/N

Just finished Spider-Man: Edge of Time!

In short... )

And SPEAKING of Spidey, I finally got around to watching some episodes of the new Spider-Man cartoon on Disney, Ultimate Spider-Man.

...

......

...Well... it's not... bad, but... it... definitely needs some work. Like, a ton of work. 8|

It doesn't help that the last Spidey show I watched was Spectacular Spider-Man, which was easily the best Marvel cartoon (if not THE best cartoon, period) that I've ever seen -- so living up to its reputation would be difficult for any show, but Disney... well. It dropped the ball on this one.

WHY, DISNEY. WHY. )

And thus, the recent announcement of a new Avengers cartoon, also by Disney -- which will undoubtedly result in the cancellation of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the second best Marvel cartoon ever -- has broken what bit of my heart that the loss of Spectacular Spidey didn't. 8'((( I DON'T EVEN WATCH THAT MUCH TV, DISNEY, SO WHY MUST YOU TAKE AWAY THE FEW THINGS THAT I ENJOY?? >|

On a separate note, I just started my free trial at Gamefly. First up, Assassin's Creed: Revelations, finally. I'm half-considering renting Operation Raccoon City again towards the end of the trial, just so I can get some more achievements and at least see all the cutscenes (since they are pretty, even if Nicholai and Jill and Carlos look rather... eh.), buuuut idk yet. I got so frustrated with that game at times that I'm not sure it's worth it when I could rent something new instead; not to mention I'm irked that I keep seeing more and more DLC for it, making it come off as One Of Those Games that purposely puts very little content in the actual game just to force players to buy more of it.

IDK, but aside from AC, I'm hoping to get my hands on Fatal Frame (ffff WISH ME LUCK GUYS IT WILL PROBABLY GIVE ME NIGHTMARES WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF) and Portal 2. Uhhhh what else... probably some multiplayer games for me and my sisters to co-op, maybe Mario Tennis Open, and OH some dance games for the Wii, since my self-esteem knows no injury and I am totally cool with dancing around like an idiot. Maybe I'll finally give Mass Effect a try, even.

AHHHHHHH

NEW RE6 TRAILER FROM E3~~



It... actually doesn't tell us much story-wise, BUT OMG THE GAMEPLAY

THE GAMEPLAAAAAAAAAAY <33333

I HAVE NO WORDS EXCEPT DO FREAKIN' WANT

EEEEEE )

...and ffffff, I simply voiced my opinion in the comments that I still don't believe New Chick is Ada, and some dork immediately jumped on me about it and IS BEING SO EMO OVER IT.

Him: "She look's like Ada, they say her name in the trailer (Ada Wong) - She is Ada"
Me: "They also said Jill was dead in all the RE5 trailers and showed her tombstone. She wasn't."
Him: "And what, they will now make RE 6 to have a fucking Ada Clone or what, SAME VOICE, SAME LOOK, SAME BEHAVIOR(Atleast it looks like) I don't think they would let themselves to make such a shitty story with clones and stuff"
Me: "Could be. As for her behavior, I don't think she acts like Ada at all, actually; Ada works in the shadows a lot more, and she's not cruel like this woman is acting. It's hard to say at this point, so I'm not assuming anything."

TAKE A CHILL PILL, PEOPLE. IT IS CALLED HAVING AN OPINION. NO NEED TO DROP F-BOMBS. U MAD, BRO

I heard a while back that The Matrix: Path of Neo was an amazingly good video game adaptation, and I dutifully waited until I'd watched all the movies before renting it and trying it.

HOLY CRAP IT WAS SO GOOD

It actually uses movie scenes as cutscenes, has most if not all of the right actors as VAs, and the gameplay is like someone took the best parts of every open-world battle system and combined them into one awesome thing of amazing awesomeness. I can recognize a lot of the moves I pull off in battle as being directly from the films, and even those made up for the game are so well-coordinated, it's beautiful, and you can tell that they didn't skimp at all in any area of the game's development. Probably helped that the actual directors had a hand in making it.

It was released in 2005 for the PS2 and original XBox, so some of the graphics are a bit dated (although the couple pre-rendered cutscenes it had WERE SO GORGEOUS, I was very impressed), but after a few hours, I hardly noticed. There were times where I was scared out of my mind, high on adrenaline, verbally keyboardsmashing over awesome things I pulled off, or laughing like an idiot at my own fail or the unexpected randomness of certain levels, like when you seriously have to crawl through cubicles and down the office building while Morpheus guides you on the phone. SO. AWESOME.

Plus, the game CHANGED THE ENDING to something considerably more satisfactory than the canon ending, so that was a nice little bonus -- although I honestly burst out laughing when it played Queen's "WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ARE THE CHAAAAAMPIOOOOOONS" during the final scene/credits, because every time I hear that song, I either think of the Disney version where Goofy sings it, or this:



It also has a crapload of unlockable bonus items, a good number of featurettes, and if I didn't have to return the thing, I'd immediately go for a second playthrough on a higher difficulty level.

And I SWEAR, one of these days, I'll splurge and buy one of those things that let you record your gameplay directly to your computer so I can YouTube the entirety of my playthrough. |D Were I to record my voice as narration along with it, you'd all see what a total spazz I am, as most of my commentary was, honest to goodness, along the lines of

"AHAHAHA OH MY GOD THAT WAS AWESOME"

"GO NEO GO GO GO"

"/SHRIEKS"

"GET OFF MY ARM LET GO LET GO LET GO GET AWAAAAAAY"

"OH MY GOD SHUT UP MORPHEUS I AM TRYING"

"AHHHHHHH KILL ALL THE SMITHS"

"OH MY GOD THAT WAS SO AWESOME"

"RUN, LITTLE ASIAN DUDE!"

"AW YEAH POLE FIGHTING! AND IT'S NOT RETARDED LIKE IN BAYONETTA!"

"DUDE DUDE GUYS DID YOU SEE THAT IT WAS SO AWESOME"

"OH FREAKIN' A--"

"OH MY GOD I JUST OWNED FOUR SMITHS AT ONCE WITH A SWORD /strangling noises"

"STOP CLOSING THE FREAKING DOOR PLEASE HE IS GOING TO FOLLOW ME NO MATTER WHAT"

"/SCREAMS"

"NO! NO! NONONONONONONO!"

"THEY COME FOR YOU, NEO!"


And naturally, like any good game, I was humbled several times, such as the first time I acquired a grenade launcher.

Switch: "Is it a good idea to trust the grenade launcher to the rookie?"
Me: (Pfft, please, I've played Call of Duty and Resident Evil, among others. I think I can handle a grenade launcher.)
Bad guys: [appear!]
Me: [fires grenade, immediately kills myself and my three allies] "............"

And then there was the time I tried to kick down a door, only to also kick the high-pressure gas cylinder next to it, which then blew up in my face.

...Come to think of it, I think I'm just bad with explosives. Like all the times I blow myself up in RE5 and Revelations because I shoot a nearby gas barrel, having forgotten that I'm not playing RE4 and physics now actually matter.

Overall, I wish all movie-based games were even half this good. 8'( Sadly, 99% of the time they're just thrown together for a quick buck and are simply awful; this game, some of the Spidey games, and The Godfather are the only exceptions I'm aware of. WOE. If anyone has any recs that have slipped under my radar, do tell!

ALSO, I knew the creators of RE once admitted that Wesker's look and fighting style, especially in RE5, were influenced by The Matrix, but skdjfklsdfs DUDE, Rebecca's leather alternate outfit in RE0 is a nearly dead-on copy of what Trinity wears in The Animatrix. :|b And I know that there are only so many fighting styles out there, but I even thought one of Trinity's moves in Reloaded was the same as one that Jill pulled off in RE5, even shot at the same camera angle.

Possibly reading too much into it, but I thought it was an interesting string of similarities all the same. And if those similarities WERE intentional on RE's part... quite ironic, considering the games did it in such a cool manner, whereas the RE films totally failed in their blatant attempts to rip off The Matrix.

IT IS 3D WITHOUT GLASSES. I FOUND THIS HARD TO BELIEVE PRIOR BUT NOW I AM A BELIEVER.

I actually got a $25 credit towards a game at Amazon for my pre-order, so I went ahead and ordered Bust-A-Move Universe, since my family is pretty much a Bust-A-Move Nerd clan and we can all ooh and aah and compete over it together. I STILL NEED TO BUY PHOTO DOJO

And expecting my Aqua Blue DS tomorrow. ♥

No joke, Wesker's aerial throw is one of the sexiest things I have ever seen.
