Will Leon Be Used By Another Beautiful Woman In Resident Evil 6?

Capcom have put up a brief internal interview with three senior members of their Resident Evil 6 team on their community site. Hiroyuki Kobayashi (Executive Producer), Eiichiro Sasaki (Director) and Yoshiaki Hirabayashi (Producer) touch upon a few points of Resident Evil 6’s story and play style, and while there aren’t any major reveals during the talk, they do tease some interesting things. (PC, PS3, Resident Evil 6, Xbox 360)

Since when is he NOT? Man he's such a wimp lol! Nah, he's great... Without him, there'd be no RE4, which is the best in the series ever... E...V...E...R......

Leon is the man! Best damn character in the RE series! I mean come one anyone that takes on a Gigante on foot is a beast! Too bad you cant say the same about that "OTHER" character. You know the one that can Punch rocks but for some reason he is too scared to fight the Ndesu by himself, so he needs the help of a beautiful lady and also needs to be sitting behind a .50 cal machinegun.

Replace Chris' new partner with Jill Valentine.

Replace 'Wesker JR' with Barry Burton.

Ditch Chris Redfield's ACTION scenarios with enemy fire fights. Seriously Capcom. Leon's scenario seems to be the only part of the game that is close to what Resident Evil used to be. ZOMBIES.

The thing is though there not Zombies.

Capcom are just using the term "Zombies" to make it look like they've listened to us and moved away from the Las Plagas since one of the complaints in RE5 was to stop having enemies with guns but they can still do this in RE6......so basicaly there not Zombies, they are just given the term Zombies to make us excited.

Zombies can not use weapons...

Las Plagas can though...

It's a shame to see people fall for this though, Capcom are smart b*stards I'll give them that

I love how they try to make out like it's still survival horror when a few weeks ago they said survival horror was dead. The game will be nearly all action regardless of what character we play, I just think Leons will have a little more horror in then the other two.

"Counting each playable character’s partner, that makes for six protagonists. Capcom decided on this because they felt it would give them an opportunity to tell a more interesting story. With regard to the partner system, one of the major improvements being made is the ability to drop in and out of co-op play at any time. You won’t have to return to previous checkpoints or start stages over from the beginning if someone wants to join your game."

But why add more pointless characters

I want to know more about Barry Burton...his backstory, how he got into the STARS team, how he made friends with Chris and whats he been up to.

Just like Sheva in RE5, I know for a fact that I won't give a crap about Piers or Helena. Wesker Jr is differen't since he's Weskers son and already has backstory to him which links to a character who has been part of RE since the beginging. I mean they were going to have Barry as Chris partner in RE5, why didn't they make him his partner in here. Hell even Jill would be a nice edition since she's never really been with Chris for a full RE game before, she's always with someone else, not playable or is seperated from him

The same can be said for Rebbeca Chambers, theres so much they could of done with her character since she hasn't been seen since RE1.

You would think because the BSAA was formed to counter Bioterroism, Barry, Jill and Rebbeca...surviving STARS members who survived the first encounter with Umbrella in the mansion inncident, would all be part of the BSAA....hell I thought those 4 characters would of helped found the BSAA to go up against Umbrella and Bioterroism.

As for Jake Muller....Wesker Jr....I don't know why they made him a main character who is melee based, this is RE, not Tekken. They should of made Sherry the main character and let us control her instead.

Besides having too many things going on at once dosen't help a story at all, it makes it harder to make the story solid.

As for this co-op drop in drop out thing....it dosen't matter, you can talk alot about how the game will be a "horror" game still but adding co-op to the single player already ruins it. I don't understand why they didn't make it so it's single player and if your friend wants to join they take the role as Leons partner....even if she's been seperated from him. The puzzles in the game would be solo puzzles anyway so it wouldn't of made a difference.

Besides how can it be scary when instead of getting those jumpy moments when you've been hit by a hidden enemy (like RE4) when your AI partner won't rest untill the room has been cleared like Sheva did in RE5. It just won't work.

I agree with this post almost completely, particularly the part about c-op taking a huge bite out of the horror aspect of it.

I like how Revelations was set up - you could go off and do your own thing, or you could be with a partner. I could see that if RE wanted to keep that style, it would work, but personally not a fan of co-op, or an aim-bot clearing out a room when you get there. However in Revelations, when you were with either Parker or Chris, they couldn't exactly shoot for shit, they'd often use their weakest gun, too.

i agree, they should give the old RE characters a chance like rebecca, barry, billy, carlos. or maybe they are saving them for future RE
VanillaBear  +   1235d ago
While I agree with you, the problem is that Capcom have had plenty of chances to use those characters in the past.

As I've said they were going to have Barry as Chris's partner in RE5 before they decided to add co-op.

As for Rebbeca, I'm sure they could of found a way to have her included in RE5, I mean with the BSAA being introduced for the first time it would of been a perfect chance to see the surviving STARS members with the BSAA.

If they did go with Barry and Chris going to resuce Chris (apparently Chris's reason he came to the BSAA HQ in Africa according to the concept art of RE4.5) then it would of been a good time when you resuce Jill that Barry and Jill would of swtiched to make Jill as your partner......thats the one thing I was p*ssed off at in RE5, when you finally save Jill Sheva dosen't swap, the final battle with Wesker and Capcom made it so Jill backs out. Jill and Chris should of been the ones to finish Wesker not Chris and Sheva.
