"Capcom explains why Slant Six was hired to create Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City"
I'll tell you why without even reading the article and even give you transcripts from the meeting.

Capcom wanted a call of duty type game with the recognition of one of it's own franchises and they needed some "Cheap" developers with Online Shooter experience to come in and make it happen. The guys from Lost Planet were not an option after the Financial failure of Lost Planet 2 although 1.2 million in sales across 3 platforms it was not good for Capcom.

You had some clown in a suit from Capcom holding interviews
Capcom suit- "we need a COD type game, FPS are all the rage on consoles so who can do it"
Guy who made Lost Planet 1&2 - " well we aren't doing anything"
Capcom Suit "You never did anything, that's the problem"
Slant Six guy said "we made SOCOM"
suit said "WOW Really now that's a franchise ...Oh wait a minute! which one"?
Slant Six guy "Ok Ok Ok well do it for cheap"
Capcom suit "great your hired you can work out of the Lost Planet offices as they are available".

Man, Socom: Confrontation was an absolute abortion. So many bugs that it makes Call of Duty look polished. I have to admit the laggy ass menus on that game did make me lol though!

n4gisatroll2810d ago

Maybe when it first came out...but today it's more like socom then what zipper is releasing this month. I think this may come out alright...but I really need to see something on it first before I say it's crap or great.

Makes me wonder what the other choices were. No hate intended lol, just wondering XD.

The people making the game are giving it there all, Capcom have said they are working as hard as any Japanese studio. So give them a chance eh?, last thing they need is a bunch of piss ant gamers throwing negativity at them 24/7

"The people making the game are giving it there all"

So? Doesn't change the fact that it'll be shit. Hell, it already looks shit! You obviously haven't seen the magazine scans from a few weeks back.

"last thing they need is a bunch of piss ant gamers throwing negativity at them 24/7"

Go play Socom: Confrontation and the Socom games on PSP, then come back and say that.

TXIDarkAvenger2810d ago

You haven't played the game dumbass, so don't go running your mouth off saying the game is shit.

sam22362809d ago

@AnimeAvenger: You're right, I haven't played it, but I have played the devs other games, all of which are Socom-related and all of which are shit. Therefore, I have a right to call this game shit.

As I mentioned in my reply to Ace, there are magazine scans of the game on a couple of sites. It has all the info needed to come to the conclusion that the game will be shit.

Sometimes I work really really hard, I give it my all, I put forth maximum effort, hell i even break a sweat sometimes trying so hard.....but when i get up off the toilet all that is left is a steaming pile of shit....just like this Game.

ApexHell2810d ago

i will give them one more chance! but if they fuck it up then fuck them.

ATiElite2810d ago (Edited 2810d ago )

Hey buddy how about you buy me copy when you get yours so I can give them one more chance too. But hey if they fuck it up then we both can say fuck em (but at least that way we both won't out of $60 bucks) :p
