As of 5/14, the RE:R demo has hit the Wii U. What do you guys think? Feel free to discuss the game here.
Played the Demo last night in conjunction with the Sale (50% off) that is going on right now for the game on the eShop. Some of the stuff will take some getting used to, I'm sure, as I was missing shot after shot. It was pretty embarrassing. Also, the guys were like TANKS. Am I just used to Zombi U? One or two headshots should be enough, but that wasn't the case.
Any idea how far into the game the Demo takes place (mind the spoilers). It seemed pretty early, but those guys were pretty tough.. I've been itching for a Zombi U sequel, but maybe this would suffice? Conversely, do I need to buy this if I can just PLAY ZOMBI U AGAIN? I'm not sure.
I was diggin' Jill though. Ohhh, Jill. She looks a little different in the face though, which is a bummer. I like Jill. I could always play Resident Evil on the Wii, too. Or Resident Evil 4 again. I don't know what to do.
I'd say Revelations is definitely worth a go, especially at $20. It's the most fun I've had with a Resident Evil since 4.
As for the enemies you faced in the demo, they definitely are bullet sponges unless you approach them just right. The best way to save ammo is to shoot both arms until they're paralyzed, then go in for a charged melee attack on it.
The 3DS version is on sale as well, only $9.99. Only bad thing about downloading it, it takes a little over 25,000 blocks of space which is almost 4gb. I had a 8gb card, but 75% of the space was filled, so I had to upgrade to a 16gb card, which was only $10 at Walmart, which was for a Sony 16gb sdhc card, most of the other 16gb cards were around $15-$17. The only had a couple of the Sonys, I'm thinking the Sony's are an older card that Walmart is trying to move out of stock.
I owned RE Revelations for the 3DS when it launched, but ended up selling it cause I needed money. I was only about 20%-25% into the game, but really was enjoying it. So, I figured, might as well just go for this version again, esp. since its $10 less than the Wii U version, plus its in 3D.
I still had $5 worth of credit on the eshop, so I also bought Night Sky, which is MOST EXCELLENT! I had been eyeing up this game ever since it hit the 3DS eshop and since it is on sale for $4.99, figured I might as well bite on it as well. I do not regret it one bit. I highly recommend it for those with access to a 3DS.
