    I've loving Resident Evil Revelations 2. The variation in gameplay between the two storylines and characters is pretty well done. You take it in turns playing Claire Redfield and Moira Burton who are stranded on some kind of Russian former penal colony on a remote island, and Moira's dad, Barry (from the first game) and a strange girl named Natalia. Moira has a phobia of guns and so is limited to the crowbar and flashlight. The flashlight can be used to temporarily blind enemies and reveal hidden items. Natalia has the ability to 'see' monsters and can be used to scout out where the enemies are and where their weak spots are (certain enemies have weak spots that need to be hit for them to die) and can crawl through small spaces. Being a kid, she doesn't have any weapons, but can pick up bricks and either throw them at monsters or bash them. Also, what you do in one section affects what happens in the other storyline, which is great. Pretty solid game so far.

    Cool! I hope to get it in the future when Steam has a decent sale. I wish I had more Steam friends who like the Resident Evil games, because I currently have Resident Evil 6, and Resident Evil Revelations.

    Invisible Enemy mode is more than a little annoying. I think it cranks the difficulty all the way up to Survivor. As if invisible enemies weren't hard enough.

    My highest ranked right now is Xbalanque, but I've been playing Rama a lot and I usually end up support in conquest games so I play as Ares, Geb, and lately Xing Tian.

    One of these days I'll have to play Smite and see what it's all aboot (I've got it downloaded via Steam, so probably soon).

    In the meantime, I've been having a blast with Super Mario Maker.

    My highest, and favorite, is Bacchus. He's hilarious, and way stronger than a lot of people seem to realize. My second favorite is probably Tyr.

    I actually like Bacchus a lot. And Tyr as well. I've also become decent with Poseidon lately. And I'm sorry I never answer your messages. I open the game when I get home from work for the login bonus and then I just minimize it and walk away, so I don't always see when people are trying to talk to me.

    Those are both great games. People like to pooh-pooh Resident Evil 6 but I honestly can't see what the problem is. It's still a great game.

    No problem--I understand.

    I'm generally no good with hunters. I'm ok with assassins, depending on who it is (can't play Mercury to save my life). My go-to mage is Anubis for some reason. But generally I'm a tank/warrior kinda player. I just love being able to eat a ridiculous amount of damage and still be a threat.

    It's probably that they are fanboys of Resident Evil before 4 came out. Very different style of game, and very different atmosphere. I've beaten all of them with the exception of RE 0. It was awkward to play on a Wii("tank" controls are even harder on a Wiimote/Nunchuk setup) , but with them remaking it in HD, I'll probably retry it when it goes on sale.
