Resident Evil: Revelations

Resident Evil: Revelations Wii U has Off-TV play

8:00 PM on 02.10.2013 // Jonathan Holmes

Wii U Pro Controller support too

Quite a few developers are feeling shy about Wii U development. They can't think of anything wild and zany to do with that wacky Wii U GamePad, and apparently, they don't think their games would be fun enough to entice consumers without said wild and zany features. Doesn't show a lot of confidence, does it? Thankfully, Capcom seems less confused as to what to do with the thing. They're bringing an up-port of Resident Evil: Revelations to the Wii U (as well as PC, PS3, and Xbox 360), and they're adding some simple but worthwhile features to boot. 

The ability to use the GamePad screen for inventory management carries over from the 3DS original, but if that's not your bag, you can play the game solely off of the GamePad, or use the Wii U Pro Controller for a more PS3/360 flavored excursion. 

Personally, I'm hoping they go whole hog and allow for Wii Remote and Nunchuck controls too, as Resident Evil 4: Wii Edition played like a dream. Even better would be the option to do local multi-player Raid Mode with one player on the GamePad and the other on the TV with Remote and Nunchuck. That was one of the main selling points of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on the Wii U, so there is a precedent for that sort of thing.

Either way, it's nice to see a Resident Evil game that's not a on-rails shooter on a Nintendo home console again.

A Nintendo rep gave this to me today because she likes talking to me. I do have lots of the Old AC eReader cards I guess I could put in it... [img][/img]

I'm still trying to figure out how to do it, but for the most part I like what I've seen of the new blog editor. My first blog post using it should go up tomorrow.

Daily VGM #20 (Bonus) - Valak Mountain Night (Xenoblade Chronicles) [youtube][/youtube] This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).

What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...

Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had?

Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.

I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.

I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?
