After receiving universal praise for the HD Re-Release of Resident Evil, announcing and HD Re-Release of Resident Evil 0, and the announcement of a full Remake of Resident Evil 2, Capcom shows us...Umbrella Corps? Who asked for this?
This is pretty sad. Game design by committee/focus group is not something we want to encourage.
No sane Publisher/Developer would copy Capcom anyway. Hopefully if it flops, Capcom might start getting the message finally, I won't hold my breath though.
Your absolutely right. As it says in the article, this is one of the "vote with your wallet" moments. Hopefully it will send a message.
It seems like you can always rely on Capcom to measure what the fans want (which is normally extremely obvious) then do the exact opposite of that. Like, as far away from what the fans want as possible. You want more Megaman? Good, we're canceling all Megaman games. You want more RE games that act more like the original games? Good, we're making a Gears of War reskin with Umbrella Corps. characters. You want to buy a game and play it and not feel cheated? Good, here's 35 different versions of EVERY fighting game we release. What's DLC???
Don't have to worry with me. I have no interest in this. Now Resi 0 and Resi 2 Remake on the other hand is a different story.
Sure we don't know much about the game yet, but come on, they really chose another Raccoon city flavored experience? Learn from your mistakes Capcom.
That game sold well
That game is universally understood to be one of the worst games in the series. Sitting right there next to survivor and gaiden. Look up any review for it ever
just because the game sold well that doesn't mean it has anything to do on how the actual content works or AS IF the game meet the buyers expectations , this includes RE6 too you should thank the game cover for the mislead marketing http://ecx.images-amazon.co...
What about that cover misled?
the point i'm making is only lesson capcom would learn is, "hmmm these games sell well"
I'll give it a go, but I'll keep real skeptical
so despite looking, playing, smelling like a resi game, it aint a resi game?? in which point arnt we heading for another disaster a la operation raccoon city :(
I think this game barely even looks like, smells like, or plays like a resident evil game to begin with. ORC will probably be a more RE experience than this will be.
that was my attempt at being satirical in which I failed, therefore I apologise :D
Serious question. What part of Umbrella Corps looks and plays like Resident Evil, in your opinion? OK you were joking. But I don't get the punchline.
ok you.ve broke me down, I commented before reading the article; so there ya go I hope you're pleased with yaself :)
The joke is the characters arn't even anyone relevant. They are literally nameless, faceless jerks shooting each other... I'm so mad about this..
Yeah this title is a rehash of the failure that was Raccoon City. Please tell me who gave Capcom the idea to do this?
Well,many hand on/impression say game is decent/alright (not terrible or bad but need some polish).
I'm not a Resident Evil fan, but seeing this at TGS made me laugh my ass off, facepalm, and groan in quick succession. I wonder when the Final Fantasy competitive shooter will be announced...
Play as Shinra Soldier ?
For someone that complains a lot, you sure do follow gaming news, but as it seems, nothing will ever satiate your "standards"
I'm looking for hope. I'll always be a gamer, even if that means I'm a retro gamer. Ideally, though, I'd be able to rejoin modern gaming at some point. As far as "nothing satiating my standards", I was very happy before. Obviously I'm not impossible to please.
The trailer I saw on here a day or two ago looked good, don't understand the hate. Doesn't mean the game will match the trailer, but I wasn't discouraged by what I saw.
it's bad timing. people (include me) don't expect capcom announce this game on sony press conference in TGS .
I've played nearly every RE game, and read a lot about those I missed, story wise. And that's where RE lost potential, story. It's so jumbled and idiotic by now, with viruses reaching new stupid levels which would need to be somehow integrated into future instalments, that I wouldn't be surprised if writers themselves refused to make another RE entry. There's also a second problem. Whereas the solution to save RE as it was would be to completely restart it from the beginning, it won't sell. There is just a bigger market in actiony type of games, it's the players themselves who voted with their wallets for the direction the franchise went. People who would not only like, but also buy a RE game which went to the roots are in the minority nowadays /sadviryu
as much as i love RE, i am not going to get this. ORC was bad as it is but at least it had a (non canon) story tho. This hasn't got it either. This game isn't even remotely a RE game.
What about a Silent Hill third person competitive shooter? That would go over well.
2 be faie capcom didn't use resident evil title on us/western version.
Its gonna be a rental, I'm not falling for what is essentially raccoon city 2
Reminds me of the weird Metroid game that's actually not Metroid in any way.. hint: to avoid butthurt don't just stamp existing IP's to irrelevant projects. It's a stupid idea... like with the notorious Starfox game on GG that wasn't even a Starfox game in any comprehensible way
Its sad what Capcom done to this series, but they say that this is not a RE game, but game in the world created for RE. So player dont want another online shooter, but they want good and healty Resident Evil game:) But maybe its only a test for something bigger? Bigger is certain Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, which will be a FPS shooter with open world and it will redefine own series. And make it in the right direction.
