Resident Evil: Revelations is a sour grapes cock-blocker

[Warning! Some SERIOUS spoilers in that video, son!] If you are a 3DS owner and you are reading this, I assume that you have access to the internet, are interested in beautiful videogames Therefore, that you have downloaded the demo to Resident Evil: Revelations, right? If that is the case, you probably don't need convincing that Resident Evil: Revelations looks better than 99% of the games that Capcom has released on Nintendo consoles in the publisher's long and vibrant history. 

If you don't have a 3DS and you like Resident Evil, I'm assuming you are either now planning on buying the console, or are now desperate to convince yourself that this game doesn't look incredible. "Sour grapes" is one of the most common ego defense mechanisms amongst the envious. I think we've all come to expect some instances of sour grapes from the release of a AAA console exclusives. I'm sure Resident Evil: Revelations will be no different.

I wish I could help you guys out with those grapes, but I really can't think of anything I don't like about the game so far. The option to walk, aim, and shoot can make Resident Evil: Revelations a little less challenging than I'd like, but that's easy enough to fix; just don't walk and shoot. Other than that, my time with the game has been pretty much perfect.

Can anyone else come up with some things to not like about this game? Are their a few slightly fuzzy textures that make the game unplayable for you? Too many shiny butts maybe?
