Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City Special Edition Set
Hello video game aficionados of the Ichthyoid persuasion, I bring you today the contents of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (ORC) special edition box set.
I ordered via the Capcom store and while the internet is full of stories from not so happy customers- complete with nerd rage expletives and image macros. I decided to risk it anyway… that sweet ass limited edition “Welcome to Raccoon City” sign lured me in.
Much to my surprise it shipped on Monday 3/12/12 and by today-Friday 3/16/12- I have this sweet baby in my hands! This edition set me back $86 bucks but it is so worth it!
Capcom’s Resident Evil/Biohazard franchise has been known to deviate from their original formula of survival horror present in Zero, I, II, III, and Code Veronica X. These games have been known for their atmosphere, voice acting (which is hilarious in the old versions), fixed camera angles, and tanky controls. There have been spin-offs such as Resident Evil: Outbreak and Resident Evil Gaiden, the latter of which some people don’t even know exists. It was not the release of Resident Evil 4 that revolutionized the franchise. Such mechanics as a third person over the shoulder view with precision aiming and a more action oriented experience was received positively among gamers and critics alike. Almost seven years later Capcom plans to add a third person tactical theme to the Resident Evil franchise. Will this title be a hit like Resident Evil 4? I doubt it but I certainly hope it does well.
