Rely on Horror - With The 3rd Birthday being somewhat of a spinoff, longtime fans of the series are left to wonder if there will ever be a Parasite Eve 3.
Will Square Enix ever raise to the creativity of Sqauresoft or Enix? I'm not putting money down on it.
I sure hope there is. But at the rate that Square Enix is going I highly doubt it.
There was a time when I desired sequels to games from square, Now I'd rather they just didn't. I don't want them to fu*k up good games.
Good point. That is another valid reason why the shouldn't.
It won't have much in common with the other 2 games, but that doesn't mean it won't be fun. With Square's recent record I'm not betting it'll be much fun either. Here's to it not totally sucking. Pick it up at your local bargain bin. I hate paying 10 bucks for an ok movie. It really hurts to pay 60 bucks for an ok or truly sub-par game.
I find it funny how everyone keeps denying the fact that the 3rd Birthday IS the 3rd parasite eve. In terms of time line it takes place after Parasite eve 2 and it involves the same characters and it's ending goes to far to be a side story as it ruins chances for recovery.(won't spoil it but those who have beaten the game will know what I'm talking about and those who haven't can head over to wiki for a summery of the ending) In my opinion after having played The 3rd Birthday they need to reboot the series and character because of the horrible ending(which by the way made NO SENSE at all) or just flat out say that The 3rd Birthday wasn't canon. The entire game ruined the world and characters of the original series but goes to far with it's plot to be a simple spin off so unless a 3rd true game in the series is a prequel or takes place before The 3rd Birthday I think they should just reboot it. And try to get as many of the original team members back on it so we get more horror and less retarded sci fi that makes no sense.
If The 3rd Birthday is anything to go by, I doubt any fans would WANT a Parasite Eve 3. Square clearly don't remember what the characters, world or plot from PE1 and PE2 are supposed to be like.
