I must say, this Resident Evil film reboot looks promising. Although, in my opinion, it looks more like a TV series than a blockbuster film, it does seem to follow the plot of the first few Resident Evil games quite closely, which makes it infinitely more interesting to me than any of the Resident Evil films starring Milla Jovovich. Claire Redfield is apparently the central character, which is cool. I just hope that Jill Valentine gets plenty of screen time too. But I did not see any sign that Sherry Birkin will make an appearance. I really hope she does, because after Jill, Sherry is my favourite Resident Evil character.😊
Also, you may have noticed at the end of the trailer that Talenthouse is having a fan art contest for this movie. The deadline is now less than two weeks away, and there are a raft of conditions to take into account, but since I’m such a big Resident Evil fan, I really would like to submit something to this competition.😄
Of all the Resident Evil characters, my favourite will always be Jill Valentine. However, given the opportunity to tell the story of any character in the Resident Evil franchise, I would without a doubt choose Sherry Birkin. And this is in spite of the fact that I haven’t known Sherry for very long. I only finished playing Resident Evil 6 late last year and, more recently, I’ve been having fun with the Resident Evil 2 remake, both of which feature Sherry at different stages of her life.

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. Continue reading →
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 →
