Remilk. feel free to disagree, but I said it. RE without Shinji Mikami it's doomed.
revelations was good, more than one person helped make the Resident Evil franchise there are many talented developers out there.
After the last one being a Stinker, it would of served them better to cool off the franchise, ground themselves in the roots of the franchise and take inspiration from new horror games. That way the product they make has effort and soul.
@rodiabloalmeida completley AGREE.. Without Shinji Mikami RE was dead. Waiting for The Evil Within.
Well, it's not "doomed". But the series definitely needs some special direction to help it back on its feet.
Evil Within will serve as our long forgotten RE fix , and surely even more than that. Not expecting nothing more than typical 3rd person COD/Gears QTE ballad with few dark corridors to try and justify the "survival horror" capcom claim they are making.
But Resi4 was when it became an action game and everyone seems to love that. They changed it because at the time everyone was saying it was stale etc. Now I see everyone wants to go "back to its roots". Probably the same people moaning that it needed to change after CV. RE needs to die. The story has just got out of hand with each new game. Capcom can then concentrate on doing something else within the genre without them needing to give a nonsense timeline to explain all the rubbish they've needed to add
Resident Evil is so messed up, that nothing could change that. The franchise needs to rest. Play The Evil Within instead. Also, Mikami said in an interview that people doesn't get scared as easily as before, so it's a very difficulty task to make a game today that has the same impact RE had at the time long years ago. But capcom doens't want to see that. Infact, they doens't accept it since RE3 and pretty much forced Mikami to make RE4, which is a pretty good game, but should be the last one made, if you look at the recent instalments of this beloved franchise.
They may as well. After the last games they left literally nothing salvageable for them to carry on making sequels...
They butchered the story, ruined the characters, got rid of one of the best villains in the game and turned it into a massive over the top action game Yeah it's pretty much ruined I'd say they just make a new timeline, use the same characters and locations then by the time you get up to the 4th game with them changing so much to the story the 4th game would be completely different....hell you could have Wesker finding out about the Plagas and because one of the rival companies have gotten there first he decides to use whats left of Umbrellas resources and bomb the place....killing Saddler, Salazar and the plagas in one go....meaning they never kidnap Ashley and RE4 doesn't happen.
But what people aren't realising the sad truth is that RE is selling pretty well. It sucks I know, but Capcom won't make any changes when people are still buying the games. http://www.capcom.co.jp/ir/... But I agree, this series could do with a reboot, Resident Evil 6 I wouldn't even call average.
This past RE games, they've copied some elements on COD lol.. so that's why most of the part it's action, not horror lol.
The series deos need a reboot, otherwise it'll just get more confusing to stick with how it was before, not just in terms of mechanics but also story, they have lost themselves in pretty much every aspect trying to please fans with RE6 which did not really work out. I'd love to see a new studio trying to figure out a new Resident Evil, that again focuses on a stronger narrative and more survival horror. In the past few years there have been quite a few good games that showed how that can be done, even AAA games like Dead Space 1 and 2 or The Last of Us. I'd really like the series to become good and relevant again. It's one of these series I grew up with that I'll always like and hope it'll turn out good again and RE4 is still among my favorite games of all time. Good luck Capcom.
Well 7 comes after 6 so you might be right Einstein I'd rather it was called BioHazard, and be a completely new game, with new characters, and actual zombies, not some dumb mutant things that melt into the floor after you put them down
But it's called biohazard in Japan so they really couldn't do that.
I know it's called that in Japan, it'll be a total remake then without the stigmata of the later crapper Resident Evil games It needs completely rethinking
@vallencer Well they could reboot it and call it Biohazard in the US/EU and call it Resident Evil in Japan.
Just make it scary.
Just a rumour going around Microsoft may have bought the exclusive rights to the next Resident evil. Have to wait to see if there is any truth to this rumour?
Can't see it personally, Japan is a big market for RE usually, and without an actual console to release it on over there would be a bit of a disaster.
Capcom wouldn't be that stupid again. Dino Crisis 3 was Xbox exclusive for whatever reason and you see how that went
Even though it was an Xbox exclusive, it was also a flat-out piece of shit that didn't even deserve to be lumped in with the previous two games, which were actually amazing. Dunno wtf Capcom were thinking with that game.
RE is too big to be exclusive, and there were rumors when last gen started shortly after Dead Rising launched and Lost Planet was announced that Microsoft was trying to acquire Capcom... Which is just as ridiculous as having Resident Evil exclusive to XBO. It's behind world wide, isn't out in Japan and Asia and is STILL the most expensive of the 2 next gen consoles. File that rumor under "Never Happening"
What? Nothing's too big. Nintendo almost bought THREE exclusive big RE games (remake, 0 and 4). The only one that got away was 4. I doubt it would happen but not because it COULDN'T happen.
I read that as well.. heres the link.. http://www.xboxdynasty.de/R... Dont think Capcom could be that stupid...
Remember Phil Spencer hinted last week that Microsoft is looking into bringing Japanese games to the xb1 and Microsoft doing this alongside launching the console in Japan sometime this year or after. Nothing surprises me anymore money talks more than anything. If Microsoft is willing to pay and Capcom accepts its a done deal.
Just no. This will not happen haha.
Doesn't add up, Sony's PS4 is where the cash is made these days, going exclusive to XB1 would be a company suicide option for a company that's financially buggered. Multi platform is the only wise thing they could do just now for sure, if they were to do an exclusive game for any console, PS4 would be the choice.
Maybe at GDC ?
i lost all hope for resident evile so should you..looking forward to the evil within
Well Capcom, the ball is on your court. If I were them, I would have gotten the director of Haunting Ground seeing that he was main person behind Resident Evil 3.5 but seeing that the art team behind REmake and Zero are with Tango they are are going to have some big shoes to fill.
Revelations and 6 (Leon's campaign) were a hell of alot better than 5 and Operation Raccoon City at least.
I would put ANY game that manages to have an actual story and gameplay over Operation Raccoon City.
operation raccoon city is awesome. that multiplayer is addicting
This is gonna suck :-\ resident evil games are really crap now....... I really hope the original director comes back to do these one day..till then these suck ass :-\
Am I the only one that wouldn't mind a reboot of RE3? I loved that game on PS1, it's better than another RE6 or ORC game getting made.
Fond memories of 3 that i share with my best mate, playing it when we were too young really but loved it! Remember playing mercenary mode at his house when like 5 nemesis are chasing you around the police station :)
Same :) Nemesis added a unique fear dynamic in the game that the player is always scared of. The music added allot to atmosphere of the game as well, we all knew that as soon as it gets quiet something is about to happen! haha Such a nostalgic game that scared the crap out of us 90's kids.
RE is a dead franchise unless they can show something to the contrary. Just not getting hyped about RE because it is a RE game. Not anymore.
you don't know what is dead franchise
I still say remake the 1st 3 games and continue the story from there but as that's unlikely to happen im hopeing for a survival horror game similar to the early games at least and here's hoping resi 7 is a great game for all.
Please, for the love of god, just make it Survival Horror again.
Hoping for the best... expecting disappointment. We'll see.
Get ready folks, Capcom flogging a dead horse coming up!
LOL, I think they know they messed up. If their next game turns out to be actually good, then alongside Dino Crisis + their mystery fighting game, I'd love to see Capcom rise from the ashes.
please be scary with great gameplay
I'd usually be pretty buzzed about this, but after the last 2 games (5&6) I honestly couldn't care less. I'll be getting my survival horror fix in the form of The Evil Within when it releases.
Please, Capcom. Listen to the fans this time! Horror games could be very tense and scary with awesome lighting/shadow effects since we have the new systems. Just look at Outlast!
But dont look for too long ;) Outlast is fine at the start but it wore off quick. I agree about the lighting though, really sets a scene
They need to re-do the series the way they ORIGINALLY did it. Limited supplies and saves. Horrifying silences/noises. The series died for me after Resident Evil 3, when they switched EVERYTHING up. Hated every game past Nemesis.
Code Veronica, back on the Dreamcast days, was still amazing. It is my favorite RE to date! ... I wish they would bring Claire back.
Yessssss can't wait I love resident evil games do hope they go more towards horror though
For Resident Evil 7 to have any success, it'll have to surpass Outlast in every way possible.....but also we have Evil Within coming out in august. Capcom has a steep climb back into the survival horror genre.
Please make it scary.
No Chris, no Jill, no Leon please. They're overused. Where is Carlos? Where is Rebecca? Barry? Whatever happened to Billy? Oh and make is scary again please.
Remake like re1 on the gc, or complete reboot similar to the series roots would be soo good, not enjoyed one since 3 really I like what 4 did but thats where it started to go down hill imo
