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.

pompombrum909d ago

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.

TheZeroReview909d ago

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.

MPScrimshaw909d ago

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???

SolidGear3909d ago

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.

ZeroSkerbo909d ago

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.

ZeroSkerbo909d ago

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

Shinox909d ago

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

Raziel893909d ago

What about that cover misled?

DanielGearSolid909d ago

the point i'm making is only lesson capcom would learn is, "hmmm these games sell well"

callumjack909d ago

I'll give it a go, but I'll keep real skeptical

ironcrow2386909d ago

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 :(

MPScrimshaw909d ago

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.

ironcrow2386909d ago

that was my attempt at being satirical in which I failed, therefore I apologise :D

KwietStorm909d ago (Edited 909d ago )

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.

ironcrow2386909d ago (Edited 909d ago )

ok broke me down, I commented before reading the article; so there ya go I hope you're pleased with yaself :)

ZeroSkerbo909d ago

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..

TheZeroReview909d ago

Yeah this title is a rehash of the failure that was Raccoon City. Please tell me who gave Capcom the idea to do this?

gantarat909d ago (Edited 909d ago )

Well,many hand on/impression say game is decent/alright (not terrible or bad but need some polish).

kalkano909d ago

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...

gantarat909d ago

Play as Shinra Soldier ?

Featuring_Dante909d ago

For someone that complains a lot, you sure do follow gaming news, but as it seems, nothing will ever satiate your "standards"

kalkano909d ago (Edited 909d ago )

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.
