Mercenaries, the best part about Resident Evil 4. Now we have a whole set (Sadly the last set ever) dedicated to this amazing mini game! The DBG version is much like its Console brother, pick a character and have a certain amount of time to get the job done. In the DBG it is 15 turns to get a higher combo than the other team (2v2), or other players if you play free for all (1v1v1 or 1v1v1v1).
You get a Combo when you or your team defeats Infected in a row, so if you both defeats an Infected in your turns then the Combo continues, if in any of your turns you fail to defeat the Infected the Combo ends and you count the Combo. The Combo points is the total Decoration cost times the number of Infected in the Combo pile.
Your team is being dropped right in the middle of the Infected horde and must fight them til the times run out, trying to get such a high combo as possible!
The 8 new Characters are really good, each of them only have one Level. But one ability is all you need since the team will get Decorations together in Mercenaries, but instead of another ability this Expansion introduces Skills. Each player get 5 random skills at the beginning of the game where you can pay XP (also a new addition to this set) to get the Skills power! You get ONE XP everytime you explore and can get XP by other means aswell.
So to get the Medic Lv.1 Skill you need to add one of your Characters XP to it and then its active. To get the Hangun Technique Lv.3 you need to spend 6 XP to get it active!
It also includes three different Mansion, with three difficulties.
The Cult. This is the easier or the three, the Los Ganados and the Los Iluminados!
Tribal Technology. The Medium difficulty with Tribal Majini, Base Majini, Crocodiles and Snake.
Majini Rock. The Hard deck, Town Majinis, Chainsaw Majinis, Motorcycle Majinis, Big Man Majinis and Adjules.
In all the decks the Red Executioner shall be shuffled into it, as the "Big Boss" of the decks!
In Mercernaries, even the ammo is better than in previous editions!
The Basic Resource Knife and Gun have been Upgraded to. Much better than the base set!
Most of the weapons are better and funnier to play with then the ones in previous editions!
Mercenaries got super sweet Actions to, everything is to destroy for the other team and boost yourself or your team!
This is the best box set of Restident Evil, as I´ve said its the last one. But hey maybe you should quit while on top!?
So in this post its all about the Resident Evil DBG expansion Outbreak, which is all about spreading the infection!
The Expansion gives us 150 new cards, dividers and Health loss and Infection Tokens.
New characters who fit the Outbreak mode perfectly, either with great Outbreak skills or familiar faces from the old playstation 2 Outbreak games.
A lot of new and exciting Infected are in the Outbreak Mansion, many of them have the Infection skill which will increase one or all players Infection level! Once you reach 10 Infection Points you have turned into an Infected and start attack the other players, and they have to defeat you before they can carry on in the Mansion!
So the new Outbreak mode is a dangerous mode indeed, if you are not careful your character will get infected and slowly turned into a Zombie. Either into one of the cards below if you are not playing Excella, Wesker or Krauser since they already have Infected cards in previous mansion deck. Be afraid, be very afraid since Excella and Wesker are both the bosses in those Mansion decks!
Once your Character has turned you get access to the Infection cards to attack and use on the other players, if you can´t win no one shall right? ;)
Really excited to try this Mode out, the new Mansion seems really hard and there are a lot of theme in this set!
So some time ago (Last week) I found out that Resident Evil DBG had been discontionued, so I just had to buy the last two expansions to complete the set!
The Mercenaries is the newest "Expansion" it can also be played by it self since all the card you need is in there, so I guess its not really an expansion. It could how ever be played with all off the other boxes to! As the name hints this expansion is all about Mercenary mode, where the players are in teams 1v1v1 or 2v2 to get the biggest Combo score of defeated infected in a row in 15 turns. In the mansion you then add the Bonus cards which could add on turns and boost the points of the Infected in your Combo.
Mercenaries also brings in new Skill cards and XP to add further deep to the game play and Characters, XP can be spent on your Skill and on Weapons or your Actions.
Solid Expansion and Standalone game, the best box in all the Set. No crappy weapons, fast gameplay and awesome Characters.
The Third Expansion is a really small expansion, 150 cards only. Outbreak! Which allows players to play a forth playmode, Outbreak mode. In Outbreak mode lots of the Infected in the Mansion have the Infection skill which infects the Characters with the T-Virus and fasten the Transformation, if a Character gets 10 Infection points the Character have now TURNED into an Infected and starts attacking their former friends or enemies again with special Infect cards. New Characters, new Weapons a great new Mansion deck and a lot of Actions who add further depth to the whole Outbreak gamemode. Seems really funny and we will try it out next time we play!
