The End Is Nigh - Resident Evil 6 features a health regeneration system

DSOGaming writes: "Okay, we can officially kiss Resident Evil 6 goodbye. Well, that only applies to all old-school Resident Evil fans as they will be utterly disappointed by Capcom's decision to use a regenerating health system. Yeap, you read that right. A health regeneration system in a horror game. Yeah, it's not as horror centric as its previous parts but still, this is the first time we've seen such a health system in a Resident Evil game." (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

Lol. Hey, at least Dead Space 3 doesn't have forced co-op or a health regen system!
user5467007  +   1318d ago
But it's still going to be a crap horror game which has screwed over the loyal fans of the series so greedy EA can have more money.
wicko  +   1318d ago
It's a segmented health system, so it's nowhere near as bad as the author makes it out to be.

Last time I checked..RE4 came before Gears of whatever..I feel like people are trying to hard to bring this game down
VTKC  +   1318d ago
you are missing the point. DOOMZ is refering to the HEALTH REGEN because in GEARS OF WAR, your health REGENS.
DigitalAnalog  +   1318d ago
Because CAPCOM is giving MORE and MORE reasons to warrant criticism instead of trying to address it. You can't blame people from pointing it out, sure maybe the game "might" (and I say that in the loosest term possible) be beyond what we're expecting, but that does not negate the fact that we're seeing undesirable previews that will end up in expected disappointment in the near future.

Anyone who thinks this is going to be a proper survival horror game is kidding themselves. Just like EA with Dead Space, Capcom want to make a watered-down, balls to the wall action game that caters to the generic shooter crowd.

With Shinji Mikami long-gone, the only thing this is likely to have in common with the great Resi games of old is the title.
john2  +   1318d ago
unfortunately, that's true. Moreover, the whole demo of Resi6 felt really weird (in every way). I can't see how Capcom will be able to polish all those issues in a couple of months
Frodosmugins  +   1318d ago
why dont they just make another game with all these ideas and leave RE alone...

I will not be buying this game.. Fuck the story... the story was only good cos the gameplay was good in the early games... now Im just not gonna bother with RE anymore..

But it still drives me insane how a company could sell out and ruin one of their best games!!!!!!
jc48573  +   1318d ago
You will be surprised that I haven't purchased any Capcom games in awhile, so far I'm doing good w/o them. Playing through some of their older games though that were more complete.
WetN00dle69  +   1318d ago
The Demo was great! I cant wait for the full game! And truth be told me personally i dont give a fck whether or not the game has Health regen!

user5467007  +   1318d ago
or herb mixing

You know where you actually had to go out and look for health to survive.

oh lord jesus, Ain't nobody got time for that.
iMaim  +   1318d ago
that hardly seems like an issue.
taquito  +   1318d ago
been playing this one on pc,
awesome game, old school, real resident evil

still looking forward to six, i just know it wont be a survival horror game, i still love the lore and universe of resident evil, love the cheesy dialog and weird ass charachters

but, for the old resident feel, i just emulate the old ones on pc

theres is some really cool mods for resident evil 4 on pc like this one;

It still has herbs to combine, the health is divided into blocks and if a part of it goes down then that heals, but if you want a whole block back then you medicate. Not so bad.
Technical World  +   1318d ago
Not terrible but personally the health should move the opposite direction when hurt. If you get hit your health should deplete not regenerate.
pr0digyZA  +   1318d ago
Ye I agree its not ideal but at least they havn't done the full thing and made it go back to full like some sort of shooter.
wenaldy  +   1318d ago
Good bye green, red, blue, yellow, mixed herbs (tho' its still on RE6).. I'll miss you.. Good bye good ole RE.. :(

wow it seems like capcom wants this game to fail
Frodosmugins  +   1318d ago
as much as I loved RE4.... when I first put that game in to play it took me a while to get used to the camera angle with the character stuck on the left side of your screen blocking your view...That for me was the start of all the new and crappy ideas they have been puting in the recent games...
Eyesoftheraven  +   1318d ago
Doesn't bother me as I won't be buying it. Maybe I'll instead replay RE1 and 0 on November 20th and have a much better experience with Gamecube in honor of what could have been.

@Technical World
Never thought about that before, but health degen after have been biten by a zombie would make perfect sense. Also, it could even add a little to the scary/tense factor that Resident Evil should be going for!

I saw herbs in the gameplay demo wtf...
AgreeFairy  +   1318d ago
I'm still wondering why they're using the "Resident Evil" name in a game that is nothing like Resident Evil. It's like that Raccoon City shooter that came out.

I wonder if they have the real Resident Evil game on the disc. Maybe they just locked it on the disc and you have to pay about $50-60 extra to unlock the real game instead of the generic shooter that they give you here.

Okay so I played all of the RE games minus Wii and 3DS titles so I can say quite the B****ING you kids. The inventory system made sense a almost two decades ago the industry has moved and gaming has evolved.

Grow up...RE was never SCARY just suspense filled game play and guess what nothing has changed except were adults now. I for one have known this from day one and loved it just because.

The writer does a poor job and understanding that these mechanic changes might be due balancing tweaks that might not be highlighted in the demo.

As gamers and as an industry that wants to be considered more than "meant for kids" then you need to learn to grow up and stop acting like a bunch of entitled, know it all kids!

LoneWanderer09  +   1318d ago
I love how people jump to conclusions without having hands on the game, but whatever i will wait and see if the game is good or not.
Kratoscar2008  +   1318d ago
We are sure the game will be good BUT as a RE game will suck as hell.

Lets save the effort of trying to say that this games is a SH tittle this game is a CoD action oriented game, thats why Leon scenario will suck and the others will be good.
Qrphe  +   1318d ago
Regardless of what they do, this game can't possibly be as bad as RE5.
helghast102  +   1317d ago
It's certainly shaping up to be the worst RE game yet.
Neo-Axl  +   1318d ago
Frankly.. I really ain't happy about this, Just re-finished REmake & RE2, RE3.. Utterly brilliant games, Nostalgia was mental!, After hearing about this Health Regain system I'm really unhappy about RE6, It won't ruin the game.. but No longer struggling too get to one green herb while holding yourself together trying to avoid zombies will no longer be required.

Which in my case made the original Resident Evil games just brutally fun & difficult to play, Oh well.. We can always play the originals, I recommend REmake to anybody who hasn't had the luck to play it yet, Scariest RE game I've played, Brilliant Remake!.

I'm sorry that was terrible. I'm very hungry and bored.

Read this in the article comments and agreed

"Get a grip and stop bitching what is wrong with gamers today, just wait for the full facts before you crucify a game. Just for a second consider this what if the auto health regen is present in lower difficulties only, with the demo being stupidly easy it makes sense. The final game will probably remove auto health regen on Hardcore and Professional modes and might even reduce ammo supplies.

Gamers need to stop jumping to conclusions and stop comparing everything to COD. COD is popular because it knows what its fan base wants, the RE fan base doesn't know what it wants its like a teenager.

You want to move and shoot ? Capcom gives it oh its too generic and feels like ever other third person game.

You want Zombies ? Capcom gives them but wait they are not the the original Zombies lets bitch about that

Instead of the OMG FU Capcom you raped my childhood why don't you guys get into game development and create the game you want. Do any of you know how hard it is to produce a game I bet you don't. And remember GAME development is a BUSINESS and you know what speaks louder than a bunch of crying fan boy, sales numbers that's what and I can tell you this RE6 will sell just fine even if the so called purists/true fans don't buy it.
