This is my entry for :iconcheeb: 10 Year Anniversary Contest. Out of all the choices given for who to draw I chose Manuela Hidalgo from Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles since I hadn’t drawn her yet and her story is pretty interesting.

Resident Evil, Darkside Chronicles, Manuela Hidalgo copyright Capcom

Special thanks to :icontheoracledragon: for posing as Manuela on such short notice :hug:

Also special thanks to :iconbbs-brushes: Her Photoshop brushes helped a lot. :highfive:

I really think Operation Javier should have been a full game and part of the main series (same with Umbrella's End from Umbrella Chronicles, really) It seems like they took these really important events from Resident Evil's history, and put them as sub-chapters for a couple of sub-games.

And it was nice of them to bring back the Veronica virus and explore it a bit more. That's what they should do - come up with more stories about the viruses that already exist in the RE universe, not just keep creating more weird viruses in each new game.

I agree, I think any of the canon bits in both of the Chronicle games for the Wii could have been stretched out and put into their own games

Operation Javier should have absolutely been made into a full game and not a rail shooter. I thought it was a compelling story line and it didn't need to be bogged down with flashbacks to the older games that were basically just eye candy with no soul to them.

the horrible remakes of the original games with the exception of Hunk's 4th Survivor scenario should have been left out of the Chronicles games. I mean really they served no other purpose than to confuse new players and mess up what was and wasn't canon from the series. I also felt they did a huge injustice to the originals.

I mean if they were going to bother making a remake of RE0, RE2, RE3 and Code Veronica X they should have done it properly like the Game Cube Remake of the original Resident Evil.

Yeah, the chronicles did make a mess of things. For example: RE1 leaving out Barry Burton (but we still get to read files about him?) and Lisa Trevor shows up in Wesker's scenario, even though she was absent in Chris and Jill's game. And those extra levels with Rebecca were utterly pointless - a level where Barry is sneaking around contemplating his family and betraying his comrades would have been far better. There are so many things they could have done there - i mean, since RE1 only showed Barry with Jill and Rebecca with Chris, they could have ended it with all 4 of them escaping together and shown how the mansion incident really ended...

And RE3, they had Jill and Carlos going through the subway and ending with the police station. Nothing about Nicholai (even though there are files about him?) and no hospital level, and no further mutations for the Nemesis.

My ideal Umbrella's End would have been a game that brings ALL of the playable characters together (like Outbreak, but with the main characters), and have us organizing teams to take down Umbrella's facilities, with Wesker doing his shit in the background.

That's what I mean. They edited out entire chunks of the story lines in the originals just to make them fit that stupid rail shooter motif. It was all action and no substance for the most part.

On top of that they kept jamming Sergei into every single scenario for no goddamn reason which just made the story weird and stupid.

Not to mention the fact that Sergei's insane claim of every tyrant being based on his DNA flies in the face of the story presented in Resident Evil: Survivor and the second Wesker Report, both of which are still considered canon story lines.

So either Sergei was insane in making that claim or he only meant the silly disco goggle tyrants he owned or the writers are just sloppy idiots and didn't make things clear.

Also I find it ridiculous that they changed the scenarios around in Darkside for RE2 to fit the Claire A, Leon B scenario since for decades it was the opposite that was considered canon.

I honestly find the Wii rail shooters insults to the whole franchise.

And I agree totally with you. Umbrella's end should have been what was left of the STARS coming back and finishing the job. Same with RE5. Jill, Chris, Barry and Rebecca should have been the ones to finish off Wesker.

I really wanted to see an updated animation of when Annette shoots Ada and she falls from the catwalk. That scene was much more dramatic in the original RE2.

If they wanted to make a rail shooter just for the sake of having a RE game on the wii, I'd rather they just came up with an entirely fresh spin-off. I think they tried to squeeze too much into the chronicles, like they ALSO wanted the games to serve as an update to fans who are new to the series.

And yes, I was pissed off about how Wesker met his end in RE5, with Sheva taking part in his final downfall. Jill, Barry, Rebecca or Claire should have been sticking the knife in him, not some new chick who has no history with him whatsoever.

Yeah they completely boned that whole thing. You never get to talk to Kendo, meet Brad Vicker's zombie... it was just a shitty joke.

Honestly since they are so into remakes they should have remade the two first person shooters they originally had in the series. Can you imagine if they updated Resident Evil: Survivor and Resident Evil: Dead Aim with those graphics and expanded the storylines? They would have been epic and it would have made me want to buy a Wii just for them alone.

Exactly! If they had to keep her in the game Sheva should have left with Josh when he went for help and Chris and Jill should have finished the job.

It would be like watching all the original James Bond movies and instead of Bond finally killing Blofield some useless ass-hat he just met did it.:wtf:

I only ever watched the cut scenes from Survivor. The story seemed interesting, it just had all that hideous voice acting, so yes, a remake would be welcome.

It seems that whenever they come up with a pairing in RE games now, they HAVE to stick with it, so Sheva couldn't leave Chris' side all the way through RE5. Same with RE6 - you get the same partners all the way through their respective games from start to finish. It just makes the story feel forced and unconvincing. At least when you play Revelations, they do eventually start mixing and matching different characters with each other, and it ends with Jill and Chris - THAT's what they should have done with RE5.

Trust me. As bad as the acting and graphics are the story line is pure, classic Resident Evil. It's a mystery wrapped in a disturbing horror story. When you find out what Umbrella was really up to on that island it makes Rockfort Island look like a summer resort.

Yeah but with RE6 you really didn't have a choice since anyone you attempted to rescue died horribly and the individual stories took so many different pathways. Plus they did do mix-ups here and there when the teams would cross paths so I don't fault them for that especially since the AI is so good in that game.

I was actually pretty satisfied with RE6. My one major complaint about it were the glitches. They were especially bad in the lab with the exploding Roomba robots and that fucking boss Chris and Piers have to run away from.

RE5 is a wholly different story. The AI is such a goddamn anchor around your neck that its next to impossible to get anywhere without it fucking you up or getting itself killed. I only wish I could have gone solo in that game and ditched the partner since she was next to useless. Never helped when I needed it, never followed orders no matter how basic and clear the commands were and it constantly jumped in front of me whenever I was shooting an enemy.

I haven't played Revelations yet so please don't tell me anything about it :)

Haven't played RE:DC. She's the one in the story with Leon and Krauser on their honeymoon in wherever they are, right?

Her expression makes me want to cuddle her and tell her that a little fire and virus is nothing to worry about. :huggle:

The game will probably infuriate you because how inaccurate the levels based on the classic games are but the stand alone canon stories are pretty cool.

Yes Leon and Krauser go to South America for fun in the sun during Operation: Javier :date:

Manuela needs a cuddle. She has a really rough time in that mission. :XD:
