Resident Evil 6 Doesn’t Look Promising

Padinga writes:

On paper, RE6 has a lot of cool concepts: three distinct campaigns with three distinct play styles, drop-in/out co-op, a hefty globetrotting story, a rumored fourth campaign, plenty of scares and things to shoot. So, why do I have my head up my ass? Well, to be honest, I am not all that impressed with the demos I’ve seen. Keep in mind, yes, this is gameplay from an unfinished release and I have not actually played any of these. So let me get to it: none of what I saw looks good. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

It seems pretty awesome from what I played on the demo, it's almost like having 3 games in one because each character varies in gameplay so much.

well, to be honest the whole 'zombie' thing is getting pretty tired for me.
Pozzle  +   769d ago
Um...then play a series that doesn't primarily revolve around zombies. o.O

Nobody plays games like Uncharted or Grand Theft Auto and thinks to themselves, "hmmm...the whole human thing is getting pretty tired. Why aren't the enemies aliens instead?" I mean, could you imagine the uproar if the next Left 4 Dead or Dead Rising title suddenly ditched zombies because the devs thought they were getting "pretty tired". So why is Resident Evil treated differently? Why do gamers expect RE live up to bizarre standards that no other series would be expected to live up to?

I'm not very find of the Chris postion of the demo, I've always loved Resident Evil and don't like the actio heavy direction RE5 took... however RE5 sold like crazy and if theres a big market for it then Capcom will provide it.. I'm thankful that Leon's capmaign is more akin to RE4 which is my favourite of the series.

To bad you were in kindergarden when RE1 and RE2 was released, otherwise it would be your favorite series.
Ryatta  +   769d ago
Actually I was 11 but the first RE game(and my favourite of the older gamess) I played was RE2 which RE6 seems very remaniscent of gven the multiple campaings and Sherry, Leon and Ada returning.

Though my point would be RE4 is still my favourite RE game because the fear in the original games was created by the controls and camera more then gameplay. RE4 was tense and a more reaction based horror where if you died you couldn't blame the camera or tank controls...

I'll refer this for anyone interested:

How about you keep your expectations from when you'll be able to try the demo for yourself ?

I Love Dragon Dogma, Capcom show a bit of courage in making game that is different. I actually can't wait to play the Demo, it's not out yet in Australia.

I was going to plop down the $60 and buy this day 1 on pc but the demo was so goddamn boring that I don't think I even want to play it anymore...

And I'm a huge RE fan. Shame what they did to this franchise.

i've lost faith in Capcom after seen RE6 demo.

Saw a playthrough of the RE6 demo. I am disappoint. :(
WitWolfy  +   769d ago
when I saw the footage on E3 I already knew it was going to be a disappointment.
Ryo-Hazuki  +   769d ago
the game is basically Binary Domain but with monsters/zombies
tigertron  +   769d ago
As soon as I saw Chris and Jake "Wesker Jr." blow crap up Michael Bay style I knew the Resident was dead.

At least the Leon section isn't totally action packed.

I'd be happy to have RE4 be officially the last Resident Evil game. As fun as RE5 was, RE6 just doesn't look fun or scary. I've been an RE fan since fhe beginning, and even though RE games will never go back to the way they were, I was fine with RE4 still. Capcom just wants to cash in on the Gears of War crowd, knowing they would play anything regardless of substance.

I won't be supporting Capcom. If any of you are like, "Meh, I don't know what you're talking about. It looks kick ass, yo. Zombies and explosions!", that's fine, but get ready to pay $70 for the game alone and eventually get raped by DLC. Knowing Capcom, it'll be on disc-DLC.

Well I wasn't in grade school when the first RE came out. I loved 1&2, Nemesis was garbage. Code Veronica should have been 3. Zero was ok. I don't understand all the complaints? Why would you want the same shit over and over again? To me the game has naturally progressed from RE4 to RE5 and now onto 6. The controls have improved so much from the old days. I don't miss having to back track through the same shit over and over again. I don't miss having to find a crate to store my stuff in or find a ink ribbon so I can save. I'm damn sure not gonna miss not being able to move and shoot. Not to mention its coop!
Nerdmaster  +   769d ago
It seems you like to play Gears of War, not Resident Evil...
Kratoscar2008  +   769d ago
Then you didnt loved RE for what truly was you just bear with the game if you despised things like ink ribbon, you know ink wear out when you whrite in a typewritter, Survival horro as it finest.
Pozzle  +   769d ago
To be fair, the complaints that RE6 has been receiving have nothing to do with the lack of ink ribbons, storage boxes and backtracking.
Nerdmaster  +   769d ago
Seeing the sales of the last horror REs, and the sales of the new action ones, who can blame Capcom?

Since RE3, sales have been downhill. 3 (it still sold well, but less than the first ones and 4 and 5), Code Veronica, Zero, Remake... Even Revelations, the game that most resembles the old games, sold poorly. People vote with their wallets, and that's what's happening.
Kaos_Vll  +   769d ago
these people don't care, they just think that everyone should like what they like and if not then you're not a true RE fan. bullshit.

the nerve of these people to tell others what they should and should'nt like based off their narrow ass thinking. they'd rather have capcom make a game that sells poorly, forcing capcom to shut down the studio and devs looking for new work.

People vote with their wallets. always have always will and it's clear what THIS gen of gamers want. more action, better gameplay and playing with friends.

I might not like where the franchise is heading but to remain the same year after year with only a shiny new coat of paint is not going to net them any profit.
