Series Consistency and Fan Expectations

805d ago ... This blog was brought about thanks to Resident Evil 6. I’m not going to talk about how bad or good the game is, but I’m going to talk about series consistency, fan expectations, and reactions from fans of a series. I’m a casual Resident Evil fan and I do agree with many RE fans that RE6 does not feel like a REAL RE game. A lot of people say that RE4 was where things started to go downhill. I d...

Hard Pressed to be Impressed

807d ago ... As we're nearing the beginning of a new year, I begin to wonder if 2013 will bear the sweet fruit of a mind-blowing video game. I often find myself thinking back to this year and considering the rather unimpressive displays I've experienced, my hope is nearly running dry. During my recollection of this year in gaming, I remember only a small handful of games that were able to whet my appetite,...

Metal Gear Solid games are the perfect sequels.

810d ago ... How do you make a great sequel? It seems these days you get a majority of developers simply using an existing formula and running with it. To be fair why wouldn't you? A fan of a certain franchise would expect the next installment to have the same feel as the previous games. For example... Uncharted, Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 all feel the same. It isn't a bad thing because the games are so br...

835d ago ... Hello everyone just thought I would make a video to help people get high scores in mercenaries. I recently got the ability to record game play so I plan on making content for video games. I'm also working on a video review of Resident Evil 6 so I hope to have that out not too long from now. Here's a list of the tips #1 Learn the map time and combo multiplier placements When you start...

Let's Face It: Resident Evil Is (RE) Dead And Capcom Doesn't Give A Rachel

841d ago ... How does things like this happen? How can beloved gaming franchises like Resident Evil commit Seppuku right before our eyes and no one bat an eyelash? Before you think that this is an article bashing the game for getting wrong what other games in its category has gotten right, it isn't. If anything, it's a wistful remembrance of the game it used to be and a head scratching at why they are tryin...

Resident Evil 6: A True Horror Story

845d ago ... Just to clear it up for those that don't appreciate irony, the horror of Resident evil is not the exquisite dialog and compelling story line. It's the fact that put quite simply, this game absolutely sucks. I apologise in advance for the rant. But the quality of game play alone is completely below par, so much that even attempting the Chris or Jake play through's are nothing more than a sad...

Resident Evil Reset

845d ago ... There comes a time in a franchises life when one of it's sequels released becomes such a huge success, in not only the franchises history but in gamings as well that the only place the franchise can go next is down. Resident Evil 4 was released in January 2005, the game reached universal critical acclaim for it's fresh take on the series and new direction it had taken, back then though revie...

What the heck happened to Silent Hill?

959d ago ... MAJOR SPOILERS OF SILENT HILL DOWNPOUR It's 1999 and I have a copy of Metal Gear Solid for the PSOne in my hands and I notice an extra disc in the case. "What's this?" its a demo of Silent Hill, soon to be my favourite franchise. Nothing could prepare me for that game, the first scene in the alleyway was a true sense of horror I had never felt even in the Resident Evil games. I was hooked....

The Results Are In: 'Scientific' winner of E3 2012

963d ago ... I've tallied up all the announcements, trailers and awkward silences to find out who was the 'scientific' winner of E3 this year. So here are the results... For the rules see... http://n4g.com/user/blogpost/chaostar/520029 There's a TL;DR section at the bottom for the lazy people. (In chronological order) MICROSOFT Halo 4 Trailer with gameplay [3] Sales bragging [-1] Splinter C...

An Inexcusably Terrible Review...

1047d ago ... This is a short Blog Post constructed for the purpose of setting intending purchasers of "Resident Evil: Raccoon City"'s minds straight, and reduce their concerns for the titles quality following this weeks Games TM Magazine Review. It was reported that Games TM Magazine had awarded "Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City" with an undoubtedly lackluster 3/10. After purchasing the latest issue...

Resident Evil Revelations and Monster Hunter 4 and the "let's port this" complex

1100d ago ... Lately with the approaching release of Resident Evil Revelations for 3DS I have heard this comment quite a few times: " When's the Vita port coming out?". This seems kind of annoying. Why are Vita gamers assuming that games like this are coming to the Vita at all? It's not that I don't like the Vita but the mentality has got to stop. In my internet travels I have only seen this rule apply to Ni...

Jumping to Conclusions About Resident Evil 6 Co-Op

1101d ago ... Today a bit of news was revealed about Resident Evil 6. The website "Gamerzine" has a tidbit article about 6 player Co-op in Resident Evil 6. The news is currently on the front page. The article states, and I quote: "According to the listing, between 2-6 players can jump into the game's online co-op mode, with offline split-screen co-op restricted to two players. At this stage, it's unkn...

Resident Evil 6 Logo Tells Us More Than You Think

1102d ago ... I don't know if I'm the only one that has noticed a connection between the logos and games in Resident Evil since 4 came out. Resident Evil 4's logo had a hook at the end of it. If you can remember when it was Resident Evil 3.5 the enemy in the game was a ghost man that carried a metal hook on a chain that he would hit Leon with. Resident Evil 5's is a little more obvious as it was written in t...

Resident Evil 4 Vs 5?

1103d ago ... The fanaticism with RE: 4 is so out of control, it's not even funny!! ( I use to laugh at it) There are many (RE:4 fanactics) who believe that RE: 4 is, better than 5, the best RE of the series, and or the last best RE. However, if asked why, their reply is, "Leon this, Leon that"! There isn't one among them that can OBJECTIVELY answer the three aforementioned statements! The very nature of RE:...

Capcom's Descent Into Destruction...

1113d ago ... As of late CAPCOM has been making gaming news, but for all the wrong reasons! There are many fans who simply dislike the companies over use of DLC and constant re-packaging of previously released titles (i.e. Marvel Vs Capcom 3, which is now Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3) in an effort to get more money. Then there are those who dislike the fact, that Capcom is single handedly destroying it's flag...

I'd like to know where all these zombie games are...

1144d ago ... Not another zombie game. A phrase that gets used on gaming sites like it's going out of fashion. But I want to know where they are. And more specifically where the good ones are. You see the only full price zombie games I have played recently and enjoyed are the sequel to Left for Dead and... well Left for Dead. The fact is they only sate a small part of my appetite. They are pure action. Ther...

The Top 5 most suprising moments in gaming.

1172d ago ... here's a list. 5. Gears Of War 3 Can anyone honestly say they weren't shocked during 'that' scene in Gears Of War 3? That beautifully tender scene in which Marcus and Dom finally get it on, I never thought I'd see a tasteful sex scene in a videogame, I was wrong. Dom's words to Marcus still ring in my ears....."Scratch one rubber". 4. Shadow Of The Colossus. I borrowed this game fro...

A Tribute to "Shadow of the Colossus"

1235d ago ... It wasn't Mario or Sonic or any of the classics that got me serious about gaming. No, it was particularly two titles in the past decade for PlayStation 2 that made me realize that video games are as legit and weighty as any other medium of expression. Sure, the percentage of games that hold up as "art" or have the ability to change someone, their outlook on things or how they question or...

The Sad De-Evolution...

1259d ago ... I want to start off by saying that I'm 28 years old and that I've been playing videogames for pretty much all my life. You'll understand later why this information is relevant. For as far back as I can remember, it was the late 80s and video games were simple, kid oriented colorful adventures featuring super hero type characters trying to save some kind of world or princess. There were no re...

(My) Resident Evil 6 weapon list, and system.

1268d ago ... I have for awhile now talked to my friends about my thoughts on a new weapon system and guns to be used in this system, I feel if you really try to understand where im coming from with this it will inject some tension and suspense back into a once proud horror series. First the System: The system in itself is easy to graps once you think about it, first drop the 3by3 squares deal, and also...
