Bearded Dads, Barry quotes, and playable The Matrix
Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is the latest episodic game series about a grizzled man with a dark past protecting a mysterious child survive a zombie or zombie-like danger scenario.
Our own Alessandro Fillari recently had the chance to get some time in with the Barry Burton side of the game’s campaign, as well as the new iteration of its score-focused Raid Mode. Both of these modes may be a little more strange than Alessandro led you to believe. Either that or he just has a much higher tolerance for weirdness than I do. From where I stand, this game looks bananas.
This video was initially planned to be about a minute long, working as little supplement to Alessandro’s write-up. Before I knew it, I was seamlessly splicing together sound-alike pop songs from different generations of music history, giving The Last of Us a new name, making a supercut of some of Barry Burton’s best lines from Revelations 2, and erasing the whiteness around the one and only Sherlock Hemlock.
If you have half as much fun watching this video as I had making it, then you’re about to have an above-average amount of fun.
