GameStop and EB Games is so confident that Resident evil 5 will live up to the hype that there giving us CANADIANS a "Gaming Guarantee" Check out the Details out after the jump.
Can I get a refund for my 360?
LOL, thats funny! Only if.. only if...
No, I believe the console you're wanting to refund is called a ''ps3''. You haven't got a 360.
Sleip, the 360 has a 90% failure rate in comparison to the PS3. Get your facts straight, or shut your mouth. I own both, and in terms of the gaming library... yes the 360 has the PS3 pinned down quite firmly; but in terms of gaming hardware quality, the PS3 is superior in every way.
what is good hardware without good software?
90% FAILURE RATE? Facts? What facts? Pulled out of your ass facts? Let's say the 360 DOES have a 90% failure rate doesn't change the Ps3 sucks balls and has lack of games which is why anyone would want to refund it for a better than Ps3, Xbox360.
I think Gamestop didn't play the demo.
HAHAHA, thats jokes! i agree, the demo was a tad under par...
if they changed it to run and gun and a reload button maybe just maybe ill buy it.
wouldn't say the demo sucked was just not what was I expecting since RE:4 was so amazing. the control scheme is outdated ....but im still gonna give it a rent b4 deciding if it's worth a buy or not.
What annoyed me the most was that they switch the <square> and <x> buttons (X is now running and Square is now action button, used to be opposite in RE4). So even those that's coming straight from RE4 is gonna have problems adjusting to the controls (me being one of them). Oh and I actually in that game prefer the RE4 controls (Type A), weirdly enough. I guess it must be because the "gears-like" controls (Type D) feels half complete. You can strafe but you can't run while strafing. You can look around while walking but you can't walk while aiming (not that you can in the others, but the controls kinda implies that you can more with Type D)
but then again there are people who find it perfectly ok. but the amount of coverage this game has got is not funny... sadly it's being pulled up for wrong reasons. i liked that graphics.. but man.. the controls. i've already said enough about it and has been labelled as a "fanboy" for it.. that too for critisizing a multiplatform game... lol.
And we all know how that one turned out... Anyway, as an RE4 fan, I got what I expected from the controls. And I actually loved the demo. I still don't understand why most people have such big issues with it. Eh, I'm not going to worry about it anymore. I'll play it with a friend and enjoy it thoroughly. Everyone else can... I don't know, play something else?
A Gamestop guarantee might as well be written on toilet paper with a pink crayon. Why in the hell anyone would buy a new game from them is beyond the level of my highly advanced comprehension abilities.
They did the same for Haze. And i returned it. RE:5 is gonna be pretty good and i am sure they know what they are doing . The demo ain't that bad i just think that some gamer are becoming little wussy. example: save point/checkpoint everywhere not having to redo a level, armor and health that regenerate , Easy control blah blah blah ... people are complaining about everything and nothing and if a game try to be a little different than other "X" game they cry and moan RE5 is the perfect exmaple of this.The game is meant to be played that way .. deal with it . Another good example of this is LAIR. Little wuss gamer coul not handle the control out of the box and they started to cry "teh failz stupidz control" even so called gaming journalist gave it bad review cause they couldnt handle it and don't want to have to ajust anymore. I perssonally loved Lair why ? Because i worked on learning the control and mastered it and the game was a blast.
Resident Evil will live up to the hype.
not for everyone. I already know two individual that cancel their pre-order for this game after playing the demo on the xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
yeah in Japan.
The hype is pretty low... so yes, it could live up to it. I'm more surprised if it couldnt.
you can add a third person to your list because I canceled my pre order
...everything got killzowwwned even my mom's killzowwwnnnned! lol
^^^ i killzowned your dog
i didnt reserve it but is good to know if only u americans could have that same respect from EBgames or gamestop .... but yeah they dont want to finish with a stack of RE5 games laying there left 4 dead lol
Now only if I could get my money back for that flop of a Lord of the Rings game. I said I gave it a 8/10, but now it's a -1/10.
I think they did this with HAZE but soon after the anouncement , they said it was a bad communication between ubishit and gamestop/ebgames. So it never really happenned with haze, guess why...
If you bothered to read the poster it's A) on pre-orders of the game and B) you do get train in credit.
Wow, I'm gonna go buy it beat it and return it.
This is good news for Canadians, so when they bring it home and pop it into their console they know they can return a crappy game without having to worry about getting some garbage trade in credit.
its too amazing
Nope, because if they're smart enough, they won't even buy it to begin with. It's still interesting how many copies the game will sell, and I'm going to salute my fellow gamers for staying away from this kind of trash of a game design.
that was awesome +1 bubble
why is it only in canada i dont want to spend my pocket money and then not be able to get a full refund
if i beat it one week i basically got a free rental? nice
Not a good business decision.
The hype came to a screeching halt after the demo...
Gamestop listens to the web. This is a marketing move for those $60 you spend first time it's pure Gamestop profit if you payed in cash. gamesonsmash? What's smash? Is that some sort of potato mixture? Is it something I would want to put my games on? Site has potential but the podcasts are very biased and one sided and your reviews need more than 2 paragraphs of obvious description.
Maybe you guys have just never played a Resident Evil game all the way through. Gameplay mechanics change, enemies change, enemy tactics change... Resident Evil wouldn't have sold well if the gameplay wasn't great. Get over yourselves and learn how to use the controls.
There's just some things that you can't explain to people. I believe the buzz that Resident Evil 5 will bring in will make people put there materialism to the side and learn the controls and play arguably one of the best games of 2009.
good thing for canadians because the demo sucks ass and the final game will too IMO
i love the game but it seems like most of the people i see commenting don't. GameStop may be in the wrong with that choice.
The demo heavily disappointed me. It felt so... arcane. Looked nice though.
This might be the dumbest thing from a business stand point. Most people are going to return it after they finish it whether they like it or not.
The demo changed my "day one purchase" into a "rent whwnever I'm bored and want to play something" kind of decision. I kinda wish wish they'd just go back to the semi-fixed camera angles and then add way more maneuverability.
Have Canadians ever complained about anything?
Yes we do complain, just not cry like like some people ( ha-ha) I wonder how long i can have the game before I bring it back, maybe finish it and bring back =/ Naw waste more gas in doing that...But the demo was good, not expecting an evolution with RE5. RE4 was the jump a lot of people was afraid of but in the end loved it. RE5 just graphical upgrade really.
there goes the first flop of the year
reviews say otherwise.
i hate gamestop.
I've nevered played a Resident Evil game before and my first impressions are kind of dissapointing. I guess its not my cup of tea or something is generally odd with the game for everyone.
I just thought of something. this means that even thoughthe game has been opened, they will still take it back?
I predict GS shelves filled with pre-owned RE5 discs!
for once gamestop are smart, they know all you suckers me included will buy this game.
Satisfaction guaranteed or we'll give you a free bag of milk. lol
