Many fans are upset with Capcom following the recent announcement of pre-order DLC for the upcoming multiplatform survival-horror game, Resident Evil 6.
"Fans"...as in the plural form of "fan"? I'm pretty sure there is only one left. Fix the title.
Will get the ultimate special edition. Pre-owned ;D
Maybe all the content will be in a one time use voucher to unlock it on disc.
This is CAPCOM after all so what`s the fuss about. This should be expected as standard from them.
That doesn't mean it should be tolerated. I hate pre-order BS.
I'm confused. First off, every company pulls this shit. Second, why make an article TELLING THE PEOPLE HOW THE PEOPLE FEEL?!
Exactly!!!!! Almost every single company does this with very few exceptions. EA, Activision, MS, Sony, namco, Square etc. but ofcourse capcom is the only one right -_-. unless the company is atlus or nis everyone gets screwed someway. Its how it is and nothing can be done about it this late in the generation. Companies like best buy, Gamestop etc pay the companies extra to get exclusive content, Capcom (or any other company_ gets a pre-order inscentive so the average gamer doesnt buy the game used, they sell online passes to make money back from used sales, they lock content on disc to milk dlc in order to get more money to compensate for the loss used sales gives them. while its not fair to the gamer who actually pays, everything comes down to Used games sales destroying the industry, Companies closing down left and right, Companies being forced to merge in order to keep from Closing. everyone likes to ride the hate train without even caring or seeing why this is happening in the first place. So you guys can keep retaliating by waiting for the games to be used, keep pirating, aslong as that happens im sure Capcom, EA etc will find more ways to screw the people who are screwing them. Are they being greedy? Yes. are the gamers who buy used games being greedy? Yes. best solution, if your gonna cry about it, wait 2-3 months till its 30 bucks new, then buy it new. both win
I agree with most of what you say but as a consumer I can buy whatever I want. If I can only afford used that's what I'll get.
Its because of people like you that this shit keeps going. "Oh I know I'm getting screwed but I can't do anything about it." If people would simply not buy the crap dlc, companies would not get away with this bs. Enjoy the wallet raping that will come next gen.
After the abomination that was RE5 (thank god i only paid $20 dollars on a black friday special), I think i'll step away from this series until Capcom gets their act together.
Stop over exaggerating. Resident evil 5 was far from an abomination, It was still obviously a Resident evil game and a resident evil style story and gameplay. Granted it was a lot more action oriented but it was still a Resident evil game. If you want to see a game that literally has no resemblance to the originals then look at Splinter Cell Conviction and yet I don't see everyone crying out in anger and abusing everything a Ubisoft does because of it. I am all for gamers having more say in the development of games but when people complain about small changes to further develop the story it irritates me. Because there is no way a game could stay IDENTICAL to the previous titles except a possible enhancement of the graphics. Just look at how people complain about COD. In Resident Evil Umbrella created the nemesis to be a super soldier. So because that one almost tank like type of super soldier died why do people think there umbrella would stop trying to create one all together.
Exaggeration? Ok, maybe so but you have to admit it lacks the basic element of horror that is the meat and potatoes of RE games. I just feel if devs want to try something different then just go all the way with a new IP or at the very least do a spin off RE game and call it anything but RE5. To be honest with you. I'd rather fan's have no creative input in the dev. cycle of a game. Mainly b/c there's no way to make everyone happy. That's not what this is about tho. This is about capcom deciding turning RE into an action shoot'em up game when the series has millions of established fans of the set formula of what was already in place. As i said before, if they wanted to do something different they i'm completely fine with a new IP or spin-off, if they really wanted to keep the RE name. But dont butcher everything about RE that made it great b/c you want to try something different. Hell if they released RE6 tomorrow and it had a combat system like Pokemon, would people complain? Of course they would! and why! b/c you took a series based on survival horror/puzzles and turned it into a run and gun/action game.... or Pokemon if you prefer.
Of course its no longer scary. Everyone in the resident evil universe knows the zombies and all the characters you play as have fought the zombies. There is know unknown anymore. Chris Redfield is a spec ops soldier trained to fight them, Leone has experienced them on a number of occasions. How are we surposed to be scared by something that could should no longer scare the main character. You couldn't keep The Resident evil games as survival horror because the first games the human were under attack, Now we are fighting back so they are ammunition, experience and a real objective. Look at Dead Space 1, It was scary because the monsters were unknown to issacc so he was scared which amped up the overall scariness of the game. But in Dead Space 2 he knew how to fight back and how to win and so did we which meant we were no longer scared of them. There is only one horror game I can think of were I think it will remain scary until the series ends and that's Amnesia and that's because its still the fear of the unknown.
and again crapcom do it again..... and ppl still buying their crap i wont waste my money on gears of evil
I hate this DLC the most, prerelease game's dlc is what I hate the most. it is like saying selling you one pie for 10$ and there is one missing piece of the pie.
If you do not like the cost of the game do not buy it. I am getting so sick of the fan whining this year from those who cried about the Mass Effect 3 ending to this.
Another article talking about capcom when everyone does the same thing ( and get a free pass ) ..congratulations
its cause they are japanese. Square and Capcom are getting Mauled this gen for things everyone else does. and they get mad at square for having 1 bad game this gen even tho they only Personally developed 2 -_-, yet activision, ea, ubisoft etc all do this
Well, this sucks because I actually love The Mercenaries minigame. Ah well.
This is one of the only capcom games ill buy (not a big fan of street fighter or any fighting game) apart from Dead Rising which I also love. The dlc thing does suck, but that wont take away from the story..
