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

653d 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

657d 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

657d 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?

771d 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

775d 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...

859d 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

912d 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

913d 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

914d 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?

915d 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...

925d 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...

955d 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.

984d 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"

1047d 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...

1071d 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.

1080d 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...

E3 2011 Nintendo Press Conference

1142d ago ... I have extremely mixed feelings about Nintendo's press conference. While I'm over the moon with the 3DS games for the most part, the Wii U line up screams the "Hardcore" focus to an embarrassing degree. Extremely disappointed at the Wii U controller design as well. Here's my responses to the announcements. - Legend Of Zelda's for all consoles! Link's Awakening on eShop available today for 3D...

E3 2011 Microsoft Press Conference

1143d ago ... Ok just watched it via Gamespot since G4TV's website blocked me access since I'm for Australia. Here's my impressions on the event written as I saw them. - Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3... whoopty do! More of the same. Once again they get the DLC first. - Tomb Raider - Quick time events... and it seems to be like Uncharted on first appearance with Resident Evil style quick time events. L...

Why I think 3DS should be Nintendo's next console

1212d ago ... I picked up my 3DS last Friday and love it to bits. It lives up to the promises Nintendo made of it. It has a lot of good games to look forward to. And it meets all my media related needs as well. Some of you may look at the title and think "what is this guy on about? Nintendo need a new console!" But give me a chance to explain here and you might understand where I am coming from. To start...

Nintendo = Best exclusives ever!

1219d ago ... The king of consoles returns. The world is about to get a taste of Nintendo's latest offering and gamers the world over are waiting. Waiting to pick up the games that made their childhood. Waiting to see that great 3D effect in the palm of your hand. Waiting just to get their hands on that monster Nintendo call the 3DS! Nintendo has not only won back their hardcore audience, they have receiv...
