Daily Heroine: Sherry Birkin

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Sherry Birkin, a character from the Resident Evil (AKA Biohazard) video game franchise. She appears most prominently in Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 6, but she appears in other games as well. I actually wrote a Featured Heroine post on Sherry about a year ago, so I didn’t think I’d be choosing her as a Daily Heroine quite so soon (especially after choosing another Resident Evil girl last week). But I had a bit of trouble deciding on a heroine today, so in the end I went with an easy option.๐Ÿ˜„ I really like Sherry. She’s very sweet, despite all the hardships she’s gone through in her life. Incidentally, the image above is a small promotional picture from Resident Evil 2. Sherry looks so cute in it, don’t you think?๐Ÿ˜

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you..๐Ÿ˜Š

CAPCOM Releases Claire Redfield Biography Video!

CAPCOM just released this short biographical video about Claire Redfield, one of the chief protagonists of the Resident Evil video game franchise. Iโ€™m not exactly sure why they released this video, but it seems to be just a bit of a marketing boost for the Resident Evil 2 remake that was released at the start of this year. In any case, I think itโ€™s a cool video. It has a spoiler warning at the beginning, but I didnโ€™t think it divulged that much about the games Claire is in. For example, I myself have never played Resident Evil โ€“ Code: Veronica and the video didnโ€™t really ruin anything for me.

Claire Redfield is a character I want to write a Featured Heroine post about in the future, but as I said above, I havenโ€™t played Code: Veronica. So until I do, that post will unfortunately have to wait. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!๐Ÿ˜Š

New Fan Art: Kairi

I’ve uploaded an illustration (for mature people) of Kairi, the heroine from the Kingdom Hearts series of video games, to my pixiv gallery. This picture was drawn in response to a request. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!๐Ÿ˜Š

Featured Heroine: Aya Brea

Today, I noticed that rumours are swirling about in regards to a possible new Parasite Eve video game. This is due to the fact that Square Enix, the company behind the Parasite Eve video game series, has supposedly made an application to trademark the name Parasite Eve in Europe. So given that, I think this is an opportune time to write a post about Aya Brea, the heroine of the series and one of my favourite video game characters of all time.

Featured Heroine: Jennifer

Like the first Featured Heroine, Fiona Belli from Haunting Ground, I only just found out about this heroine very recently, thanks to a video on YouTube. And, funnily enough, just like Fiona this heroine is from a 2000s survival horror game. Anyway, enough build-up. Let’s get straight into it, shall we?

Above you can see Jennifer, the nineteen-year old protagonist from Rule of Rose, a 2006 Japanese video game for the PlayStation 2, along with her canine companion, Brown. Jennifer, a weak and unfortunate young woman, finds herself trapped aboard an airship run by a group of young girls. For the most part these girls, who have created their own hierarchical society, treat poor Jennifer very badly. Luckily, however, Jennifer has Brown to help her as, in true survival horror fashion, she must solve puzzles and fight monsters in order to find a way to escape from the airship. But since combat is not Jennifer’s forte, avoiding enemies is also an option. In some ways Rule of Rose is similar to Haunting Ground and it is not unreasonable to think that the latter game, which was released in 2005, influenced the former to some degree. Continue reading

Featured Heroine: Fiona Belli

On YouTube yesterday, I came across a video which someone had put up about a video game called Haunting Ground. I’d never heard of this game, but the thumbnail for the video was a picture of a lovely girl who reminded me a lot of the female characters in the Resident Evil franchise (which I’m a big fan of), so I decided to look into it. As it turns out, Haunting Ground was developed by Capcom, the company behind Resident Evil, and it was released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2. It’s original Japanese title is Demento and it is closely related to the Clock Tower survival horror series of video games, in which the player’s objective is avoiding enemies rather than fighting them.
