    So far, I love her. She's a foul mouthed jerkass who hates her father and a lot of fun.

    Wesker got her plastic surgery as part of his plans to make her part of the Wesker Race.

    She got the powers from the thing Wesker put on her i think. She also changed in apperance so they wouldn't know it was her right away i think? Been a while but i think she looked different in the DLC's for RE5.

    Edit:


    This was how she looked before the transformation.

    I'm in the minority. Most would see the blonde, big jugs Jill and go "Nice" rather than "Wtf?"

    EDIT: In theory anyways.

    I think original Jill is hotter as the attempts to make her look hotter make her look more generic and less realistic.

    I will say movie Jill is hot blonde or black haired but I prefer black haired.

    She's aged well but not as well as her brother.


    Just finished Resident Evil: Revelations 2 today (sort of) and I'm pleased to say I very much enjoyed it. It's not nearly anywhere as good as Resident Evil 7 but it's a less punishing difficulty for me with Resident Evil 4. It's a nice medium blend of survival horror and action adventure, IMHO, even if it clearly was made for a portable handheld device. The plot is pure B-movie schlock and I couldn't help but wonder if it would have been better if I they'd tried for something other than what basically amounts to a poor man's Hunger Games meets SAW.

    Still, I love Moira and Claire while the Barry and Natalia things were okay too even if they were perhaps a bit too much of the usual, "Young girl and father who is not her dad" trend in video games which Joel and Ellie started.

    I think I would have enjoyed Claire and Moira alone more in this game, especially if it got us more focus on Terra Save. I also feel kind of spoiled for Revelations but also intrigued given all the references to it. Now I have to decide to play Resident Evil 5 or Revelations next or Zero and the Remake.

    Tough call.

    So has everyone heard of the fact they're working on Remastering RE2 now? It was supposed to start having material come out in January but hasnt. It's still in development, though and has been since 2015 so that's good news.

    So you found the generic "Daddy issues" chick more interesting that Barry? That blames him for not paying attention to her even despite his attempts to get back at her while trying to save the world n'shit?
    Also I could tell that, a lot like in RE4, people lived and worked there before "she" arrived. It felt decently natural and the "Lost" moments were very cool.
    Really missed the separate character gameplay in Re7 that originated in RE2, and in Revelations 2 it was handled pretty damn good IMO.

    Moira blames him for the fact Barry blamed her for accidentally shooting her sister, which he did because he didn't want to deal with the guilt of not securing his weapons. Moira never wanted attention from Barry because she hates him for putting that on her. Then again, maybe I just like foul mouthed angry punk chicks.

    Then again, I don't buy Barry wouldn't try to mend fences like a week after that, not decades.

    Agreed.

    Yeah, I hope Resident Evil 8: Monster Boogaloo has Mia and Ethan as dual characters.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 review



    I'm catching up on all of the various Resident Evil titles I've missed since I stopped following the series around Code Veronica. That's quite a few games and I decided to start with Resident Evil 4, moved on to Resident Evil 7, and am now just finished with Resident Evil: Revelations 2. I wanted to play Resident Evil: Revelations first but, well, that's not yet available on Xbox One. Also, I was kind enough to get the first episode in the series free and that was another good incentive to purchase the game.

    So what did I think? It's a pretty good game but nothing which was particularly game changing. You can tell this was made for a less complicated system than the Xbox One and I think they could have pressed the limits more. The game is a hybrid between the more action orientated Resident Evil 5 and previous survival horror entries in the franchise. Basically, that boils down to "you wander around a lot of creepy locations and run into regular monsters you have to kill despite limited ammunition."

    The premise is Claire Redfield and new character Moira Burton are kidnapped along with the entirety of the Terra Save organization. Terra Save is basically a Doctors without Borders for bioweapon victims. Transported to a mysterious island, they are all given bracelets to monitor their fear levels as they're put up against an endless parade of mutants as well as lethal death traps. It's basically a combination of Saw and the Hunger Games, which isn't a bad idea for a video game. Gloating over this grotesque nightmare is the mysterious Overseer (Mary Elizabeth McGlynn) who has one of the most recognizable voices in gaming and helps sell the situation.

    The Claire and Moira portions of the story only last about half of each episode, though, as we pick up with Barry Burton investigating what happened to them. Barry, fan favorite of the original games, is understandably concerned about his missing daughter. As he backtracks through the locations already visited by our heroines, he is accompanied by a young girl named Natalia who has mysterious abilities. Eventually, the two stories merge together and we get roughly four episodes of a decent enough horror experience.

    Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is a definite journeyman effort in video games and one I recommend people play when they don't have anything better to. It's fun and I have no objections to the game. I've finished it completely and had a few scares during it. However, you can definitely tell this was a game made on a budget with numerous tricks designed to hide it. In addition to most of the levels being done in reverse with Barry, you also have a limited enemy variety and an extremely small cast. Despite this, I give the developers credit for making use of their budget to the level they did.

    The story is a lot less complex than Revelations, amounting to a lot of B-movie horror tropes thrown together. Resident Evil has never been the most morally complex of series but the Overseer is a variety of cliches thrown together which end up making her come off like a comic book supervillain. Sadistic mad scientist? Check. Plot to achieve immortality? Check? Relationship to other character in the franchise? Check. Aristocratic pretensions and need to gloat over the heroes she could kill at any time? Check and check. It was satisfying taking her out in the end simply so she'd shut up. However, the Overseer is a villain I "love" to hate versus one I hate-hate so there's something to be said for her over-the-top nature.

    Really, this is a game which depends on how much you like the main characters to enjoy and I'm pleased to say I like them a lot. Moira is a great character and has rapidly moved up to be one of my top five favorite Resident Evil girls, which is an impressive achievement given they're some of the best characters in gaming. Claire is my favorite of them all and it's nice to see her star in a third game. I remember how disappointed I was she wasn't going to be in Resident Evil: Damnation. Barry is an enjoyable character and has a relatable story even if it's a little The Last of Us to quite work.

    I should mention this game has a Raid mode and two bonus episodes which help pad the length. It's also episodic so you can test it out, Demo style, before you decide to make a full purchase. I'm a big proponent of episodic gaming even if a lot of fans find it controversial. I also like the alternate costumes provided this time around even if I'm probably being awful by having Claire travel around in a sexy cowgirl outfit while Moira wears a bikini and shorts with a unzipped hoodie.

    In conclusion, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is a fun game and I'm glad I played it all the way through. I may also give it another whirl now that I've unlocked all the New Game+ bonuses. It's an easy game with easy puzzles but a great time-waster. I also enjoyed the characters and their banter. The storyline is nothing to write home about but sometimes you just want a mad scientist and their plot to take over the world. Still, I can't help but think if they'd made this a full game with Claire and Moira with more focus on storytelling then it'd be a awesome one.

    7/10

    Just a question: the porn SFM that swing in full throtle these days can be considered "on topic"? :scratch:

    Started Resident Evil 5.

    I actually like Sheva but I have to say I understand where the racist allegations come from for its treatment of Africans. So far, I'm only in part 1-3 and I'm doing my best NOT to play it like Resident Evil 5. The most harrowing part of the story so far was the part where I was mobbed by the zombies in the beginning as I stupidly did not stay in the house but ended up going out to fight them and ended up running out of ammo quickly. I did, however, figure out the way to eliminate the gigantic tentacle monster was to lure it into the furnace and stay inside until it was burned to death, though.

    I also like Sheva can treat my health pretty well as long as she's alive.
