Resident Evil: Revelations Wii U Trailer Shows Off Dual-Screen Features
Published on Tuesday, 07 May 2013 09:53
Capcom has released a new trailer for the Wii U edition of Resident Evil: Revelations. This trailer of course shows off all the Wii U’s exclusive functionalities including the Gamepad screen and Miiverse. With the Wii U version, you will be able to look at the map and sold puzzles just like the 3DS version, but you will also be able to play the entire game on the Wii U Gamepad. Additionally, you can also...make the monsters say things in a text box via Miiverse? Well if that isn’t the creepiest thing of all time, I don’t know what is. The home console port of Resident Evil: Revelations hits the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U on May 24th.
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
