@mockingjay: I have a terrible finishing record right now. Getting better with it, but absolutely terrible right now. For various reasons.

Same, TBH. >_> I could grind through everything else but the only thing for me in Revelations 2 was that I liked Claire and this was a part of her story. If it'd only been everyone else, I'd have passed on it. And I actually haven't played the remake of RE2 as of this moment. I was with someone who beat it, and I got in on parts (namely during Claire's campaign), but I barely even touched Leon at all.

Oh! Wait, I totally forgot. Cardinal sin time. I absolutely enjoyed the shit out of Operation Raccoon City. (I know, it's one of the more "actiony" RE games, but it was different, and I've already stressed to you that I am a scaredy bitch, but there's one more time for you.) In fact I probably had a better time playing that than Revelations 2 or RE5. It was a bit disappointing because the marketing was "You take part in key events during the original timeline, but you're working for Umbrella. You explore the events from a different perspective and can make choices which allow you to explore different 'what-if' scenarios and possibly change history." But when the game came out that wasn't really the case so much, and the only choice you make is near the end when deciding whether to Kill Leon/Claire or spare them. That said, if the marketing team hadn't stressed the "make choices and change history" aspect the way they did, even if the game was exactly the same as it is, I probably wouldn't have this criticism at all. So on that end my beef is really with the marketing, not the game itself.

I still enjoyed the premise and, faulty marketing aside, the story mode as well. The guns were fun to shoot and I liked having a crew with different traits & abilities. The character personalities were a little flat/superficial in execution, but had interesting ideas behind them if the makers had only explored them further. (Four Eyes was my favorite. Even made a character partially based on her and using that look despite extreme art limitations.) I also liked the mechanic wherein you could be infected, and there's a countdown (your life bar) by which you have to have/use an anti-viral spray or you zombify/die. Also unique, also fun. I liked the growing tension with your squad and your masters, and despite the choice aspect being underwhelming in terms of the overall game, the final choice, schism and final battle were always super fun for me. (The last level as a whole, I played through many times over.)

I'm not saying it was a good game. I'm saying I had a blast playing it.

@rosso:

Oh, I liked Operation Raccoon City too! I hated it at first, but then I tried again and something clicked, making me a fan. Well, that's something else I need to finish. SMH.

And I liked the more action-oriented RE games, it's what got me into the series. I mean they have flaws and went in a totally different direction [you can think RE4 for that], but whatever. Everything I like doesn't have to be a masterpiece.

The silver lining of this pandemic is that wildlife and the environment are doing well, without all of the human presence. And people are actually forced to interact with each other.

@ozzy_manueldiaz: Don't forget how Sherlock Holmes is always bragging that he's a "high functioning sociopath". Even though he's not.

Speaking of which, I really hope that they make a 5th season.

Ive always gave MARVEL the benefit of the doubt with them trying to fit certain styles with a series - ala Dare Devil, but the recent images on characters have been lacking. You have a time frame when you have noticed this?

@red_talon: I think the decline in art quality started a few years ago, no later than 5 years ago and no earlier than 8 years ago. But don't quote me on that, LOL. But there seems to be an indie-esque trend to the artwork in Marvel. Things look simpler, blander and less detailed.

Marvel art has been bothering me for a while too. In the beginning the bad art was just in their woke books but over the last few years it has spread to everything, including flagship titles like Spiderman, and it has become significantly worse. At this point some of Marvel's main books have art that is webcomic level or worse.

I never really messed with most Marvel art.

It's always lacked compared to DC in my eyes, but books like Thor, and Spider-Man, have almost always been crispy as hell.

@gokan_bulin: The overall quality of Marvel's comic books has taken a hit. Rather, it's been taking a hit. The art, the writing, the story arcs, it's not been good for a while. Not all of it, but DC is clearly better, even if it reboots it's universe after every "Crisis", it'll still exist as an alt. universe, whereas Marvel will pretend something crucial to it's history never even happened, LOL.

I've actually had very few issues with Marvel as of late. DC on the other hand has been hit or miss for me ever since they moved past Rebirth way back when.

@the_institution: Oh god I hope not. Disney is already scarily powerful with their global influence and connections. Owing DC would make them pretty much unstoppable at this point. Fortunately, WB would rather go bankrupt then allow their greatest rival that satisfaction lol.

It mean, seeing as how they already bought Marvel, Stars Wars, and the flipping Muppets, I could see that happening at some point. Though, I'm still waiting for the day that Disney just buys Sony. Those greedy bastard already merged with FOX just to get movie rights to more of their Marvel characters.
