Resident Evil: Revelations 2, upcoming episodic horror adventure, will feature microstrantions, Capcom confirmed today.

A Capcom representative issued a statement to Kotaku today clarifying that the microtransactions are included in the optional Raid Mode and not “within the main campaign.” The Raid Mode features two “life crystals” variants that are used to respawn, which players can either earn or purchase.


“The crystals essentially act as continues (re spawns) in Raid mode when players die,” the representative explains. “Blue life crystals can be earned through playing daily missions and red life crystals can be bought.

Marvel’s Agent Carter: “The Blitzkrieg Button” Review

Note: Full spoilers for the episode follow.

First off, my apologies, as I’m traveling for work this week, so I need to try and keep this review on the short side.

This episode felt a bit clunkier than previous installments, mainly in the first half. Agent Carter’s had a good sense of humor, but some of the gags this week were heavy handed. Stuff like Howard’s face being covered in lipstick kiss marks was pretty broad and silly. Also, yeesh, Jarvis, you have the worst tell I’ve ever seen with that ear thing! And it stood in stark (no pun intended, unlike the one at the top of this page) contrast to how strong willed he was while being interrogated in just the last episode.

The Witcher 3’s Beautiful Ugliness

The world of the Witcher is rough and unruly, defined by greed, corruption and despair. It’s a battleworn, ugly world, and in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, this ugliness has never been more beautiful.

Graphical prowess is to be expected, of course. It’s been nearly four years since CD Projekt RED released its last Witcher game into the wild, and as much as The Witcher 2 still looks beautiful on PC, significant advances in technology has allowed for much grander world building. But on the hefty rig I’m playing on, The Witcher 3 looks truly gobsmacking; pores stand out on faces, blades of grass can be counted, curls of hair twist in the breeze.

Suicide Squad Casting Rumors & More

There certainly hasn’t been a rumor shortage since the Suicide Squad movie was announced—a Batman cameo, Tom Hardy’s many potential replacements—and they’re showing no signs of stopping.

Now we’ve got a few more to add to the mix, thanks to a new report from JoBlo. *Possible spoilers ahead*

First off, Joel Edgerton and Jon Bernthal aren’t the only names in the running to take over as field commander Rick Flag. Karl Urban is also being considered for the role (while also up for the villain in the Aquaman film). Additionally, there is going to be a Rick Flag Sr. in the film, and the two actors circling that role are said to be Ed Harris (A History of Violence) and Max Martini (Pacific Rim).
