Resident Evil 6 Catch-Augh

I can't decide if that makes more or less excited for this game, which really concerns me!

*On topic note, I'm excited for the game. RE5 was the first one I've ever finished without yelling swear words at my ceiling and hoping they drift somehow to the ears of Capcom designers. Also the first one I've ever finished without at some point saying f*ck it and looking on gamefaqs.

If they continue the series along the lines of 4 and 5 I'm totally in.

I hope game developers keep ruining their own box art for me.

I am excited for this game. RE5 was a fun co-op experience despite the illogical strategy behind the final boss.

I don't understand all the whining about the Resident Evil series. Sure, the most recent ones weren't horror games, but they were awesome action games. It's a terminal case of Bioshock Syndrome, where people hate on a game because it doesn't live up to genre expectations.

Resident Evil is now an action series. Deal with it. (He says, hypocritically foaming at the mouth at F.E.A.R. 3's co-op shenanigans.)

Except the RE6 trailer sure shows a lot of horror/dark and scary scenes (at least with Leon) that makes me wonder if they split the difference with Chris handling the RE5 situations while Leon handles RE4 and new people are somewhere in between.

I take it you didn't look at the image above?

If that's correct, then it sounds like the multiple characters will be divided into separate campaigns. Hopefully that means you'll be able to play through each story uninterrupted.

Considering the recent upswing in 3DS sales, I think it's hard to justify calling it failing.

Considering the huge price drop before the recent upswing, I think I'll call it how I see it.

I think it's the same rage you see whenever a beloved franchise gets a big make-over, and I think it's warranted to some degree. It's an immensely cynical marketing move. The people who loved Resident Evil before loved it because of its stupid quirks. Sure, RE4 and 5 are better games and more fun to most people, but they would have been just as good without the Resident Evil name (if it wasn't for a few name drops here and there, they'd be totally unrelated to the earlier games anyway). I think there's some merit to asking developers to use a unique title when they're making a unique game. Otherwise, the loyal fans don't get what they wanted and the new fans weren't drawn in by the name in the first place.

No I did..I'm just looking BEYOND it.

Fair enough, I just think it's still too early to tell one way or the other for sure.

It is, I think. By that logic the PS3 is still a failure because it was at first hamstrung by its $500-$600 price tag.

To remain off topic, I'm pissed at how much I liked the Revelations demo.

Demo was okay. Played just like Resident Evil 4 on a boat. Disappointed in the lack of anything resembling old-school Resident Evil except for it being in a really cramped setting.

I dunno. Unlike RE4, enemies don't bust through doors in this one. I know, because I walked into a cramped room with 3 guys, spun around, walked back out and ran far enough that I'd have some space.

Only they just remained in the room.

So running through to conserve ammo while avoiding enemies like in the first game might actually be a viable tactic this time.

The formerly unknown giraffe from the Resident Evil 6 picture has been found.

The giraffe in question is none other than Geoffry Giraffe.

The woman in the picture is still unknown and may not be the woman from the scandalous image.

Get Dragon's Dogma and you get early access to the RE6 demo.

I was planning on grabbing Dragon's Dogma anyway, so that's convenient for me. The RE demos have been valuable in teaching me how brutal that game in particular may be if you don't learn how to play properly.

When I have more time I think I'll make a Dragon's Dogma thread.

Your Kraken's Karma ran over my Dragon's Dogma.

It totally is.

Also, if ammo conservation is something you look for in a RE game then Revelations has you covered

I'm on chapter 7 at the moment and still going strong. It actually feels a LOT like Dead Space 1 actually (linear path but backtracking in later chapters, similar music / combat).
I was worried it was going to be REALLY short but it seems to be reasonably sized for a handheld game - and there's a whole co-op Mercenaries style thing with levelling attached to it, and an achievement system that unlocks stuff you can use in the main campaign as well, so there's plenty to do.

Also quite impressed about the amount of voice acting involved AND the fact that there are about seven or eight different languages on the cart, including the original japanese.

Y'know, I thought that they'd have to stretch their creative muscles this time around now that they can't just blame it all on Wesker again.

I thought wrong.

f*cking giraffe blowjob.

And f*cking Wesker Jr.

I'm gonna regret buying this day one.

So don't?

For me 4 and 5 were way better than past Resident Evil games. But then of course I was never crazy about all the terrible gameplay design decisions in the old ones. The last two have been just the right kind of ridiculous to suit me just fine.

Yeah 4 is the only one I ever owned. Played or watched the first couple on PS2 with a rooomate and then again with the REmakes on GCN. Never enjoyed any of them. 4 was pretty damn fun though.

I actually really enjoyed RE2 and enjoyed watching RE1, though never played it myself. Never played RE3 or Code Veronica either, but I think they play roughly the same.

I played about half of RE4 and all of RE5. Frankly, based on the large differences in gameplay, and more importantly setting / story, I consider them basically separate series. I wonder if they wanted to make a different game and some decided it should be RE after the fact.

Impossible. Between REmake, RE2, RE4, RE5 and RE: Revelations, well, I just like Resident Evil too much. 5 may have been disappointing, but it was still fun.

It'll take a really bad Resident Evil to keep me from purchasing day one.

Just announced:

$1300 Premium Edition that includes Leon's leather jacket

Really wish Shadows of the Damned had this edition.

Maybe I'm just not familiar enough with high-end clothing, but is there really such a thing as a $1300 leather jacket? That just sounds ridiculous.

It is not a $1300 leather jacket. Please, that's just silly. It's a $1240 leather jacket. Duh.

First rule of fashion: you can spend as much as you're willing to spend. Always.

The most expensive one I've seen was $949, but I don't think it's a stretch to imagine there are even $2000 jackets.

They did have those El Shaddai jeans for what, $400?

Y'know, maybe I missed something along the way, but I don't think even Leon Kennedy would wear a $1000+ jacket.
