Respected tech analysis site Digital Foundry has recently compared performance comparisons between Resident Evil Revelations HD. The publication says that the Wii U version of the game is noticeably less refined than the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 versions of the game. Digital Foundry says that the Wii U version of Resident Evil Revelations contains some small but frequent fluctuations in smoothness adding some noticeable stutter to the overall experience. The site says it is particularly impressive to see just how well the Nintendo 3DS version of Resident Evil: Revelations holds up in comparison to the HD console builds. Here’s the closing snippet from the article.
Overall, Resident Evil: Revelations comes highly recommended for fans of the series wanting a more traditional take on the franchise. The 360 and PS3 versions are worth equal consideration, while the PC game, despite a few hiccups, provides the most fluid and responsive experience available due to running at much higher frame-rates and without needing powerful hardware to do so. Revelations is still well worth buying on the Wii U if you don’t own the other current-gen consoles – it’s still the same excellent game. But the more erratic performance means and less precise controls mean that it isn’t quite as fun to play.
Capcom UK has decided to cancel its Resident Evil Revelations event in light of the tragic attack in Woolwich, London. Yesterday, a British soldier was reportedly hacked to death by two men shouting islamic statements in the streets of South London, in which the government is treating to be a terrorist attack. One of the men was filmed – still holding the knives in which he carried out the attack – and claimed that he killed the man because British soldiers kill Muslims every day.
Due to the attack, Capcom UK’s event – which was to see a 16ft by 32ft swimming pool filled with a specially concocted blood dye combined with human torso floats – will no longer be going ahead this weekend on May 25 and 26 at London’s Jupiter Wharf. A Capcom UK spokesperson had the following to say this morning:
“In light of yesterday’s sad events we’re cancelling our Revelations pool event. Thank you for your understanding.”
Due to the sensitive nature of this topic, please keep your comments in respect of the tragic occurrence. Thankyou.
