I played the demo, thought the graphics were great and the gameplay even better on Wii u (I did not play on 3ds with cpp, just one stick).

The graphics are perfectly fine. Yeah it has some non hd textures but overall it sets a good, creepy atmosphere. After playing the demo, I would say I have no problem paying th asking price for the game. And with miiverse functionality, I'd say this game trumps all other versions, even the of version with graphic mods. I may or may not get this game day one though. I am rather busy with work and when the school year ends in 3 weeks, animal crossing will be out and I go on vacation. I may pick this game up in June though, when I'm in full summer break mode after my vacation. I will still buy it new and full price in June.

What all is featured in the Wii U demo? Same as the 3DS version? Different? Is multiplayer available?

@GameDadGrant it's th exact same thing as the 3ds demo...

@GameDadGrant

Slightly different I think? It starts with Parker and Jill conversing, and him saying "I'm not saying Chris and the others are dead" or something along those lines, and it ends with Jill and Parker being gassed and the masked man saying, "It's time you learned the truth Ms. Valentine."

You can play the 3DS Demo, then play the Wii U demo. It picks up after the 3DS Demo ends.

Add another to the list of people lamenting the lack of gyro-aiming. I think the Wii U demo convinced me to pick this up for the 3DS.

It ended with me thinking this is a direct sequel with 999. An abandoned ship, getting gased and a man with a gas mask showing up before completely passing out

Ah, nice! So there is something different than the 3DS demo. Neat. Maybe I'll try it out on 360 tonight. Maybe get my buddy to download the demo on his Wii U, as well.

Okay I guess I needed to refresh my memory on the 3ds demo. When I played this I thought it was the same demo, I was wrong.

@Xbob42 Then why would you want to give it Resident Evil 6? That's abusive love.
Posted: 05/15/13, 19:10:44
@Zero Hence why I said "or have it not exist at all." :p
Posted: 05/15/13, 20:43:04
But then that is the kind of love where you withhold sex from your partner for no legitimate reason.

@Zero If my sex is Resident Evil 6 (Or Resident Evil Sex...?) then it's covered in chlamydia and herpes anyway, so I'm really doing her a favor.
Posted: 05/15/13, 21:23:55
I meant withholding Revelations from the 3DS! That's some pretty sweet sex there. At least B-level sex.

Not remotely. The 3DS demo starts off with Jill regaining cosciousness on a bed; this one starts off right after Jill and Frenchie kill the very first aqua zombie together, which is located down in the galley.

@VofEscaflowne

Come on now this isn't fair. Imagine you are watching a horror movie and some CGI comes in but it looks unauthentic so it reminds you it is just a movie and diminishes how scary it actually is. Also, I see you using the word fun to describe a survival horror game! Knock it off! We have had that debate already.

I've never seen a game that hasn't let on that it was a game before through its graphics, although some racing games come pretty close.
Posted: 05/16/13, 01:12:00
@Deerock69 It's not about being photorealistic though. It's about consistency.
Posted: 05/16/13, 01:16:50
@Stephen This is definitely a "fun" game in the sense of having core gameplay that is entertaining on its own terms. We're not talking about a game with some vaguely defined gameplay like a point and click graphic novel or anything here. And only maybe half of the game is really survival horror (though that was the best half, in my eyes.) The rest is more run and gun shooter style.

I mean, I get that graphics will matter to many people of course, but... what did people reasonably expect from a 3DS port? They could have remade all of the graphics but I think we knew that this wasn't going to happen?

I just downloaded and played through the demo. I own it on the 3DS, but have yet to play it. I like the Wii U version pretty well, expect of course for the controls. After being spoiled by Wii remote gaming, I don't ever want to play another game that uses a stick to control aim and such. I hate it. I loathe it. I despise it. I wonder why I can't set the Wii U GamePad to use its IR thingy to aim? It technically can do all that the Wii remote can do and more, so why not let it aim? Granted, waiving around a GamePad probably isn't the most ideal way to aim and such, but it beats dual analog. Or better yet, let me use my Wii remote and nunchuck!

I'll probably pick this up even though I have the 3DS version. I have a gamestop gift card that'll take the price down. I don't know if I'll play through the main game again, but Raid Mode should be fun. I never did online in the 3DS version maybe I'll give it a go on Wii U.
