Fair enough! :)
(Though I'm now interested in knowing how popular the game-to-movie adaptations based off American games were in Japan)
"I mean Sheva had the privilege in RE5 to kill Wesker instead if it being Chris, Jill, Barry etc"
OMG that really annoyed me too! Wesker has pretty much destroyed Jill's life. He tried to kill them in the mansion during RE1, Umbrella tried to kill her in RE3, and Wesker then ruined heer life by experimenting and enslaving her before RE5.
If I was Jill, I wouldn't have handed Sheva a rocket launcher at the end of the game. I would have been l...
Yeah because Resident Evil has always been about anime style characters. /sarcasm
Or Mortal Kombat, for that matter! haha :D
(Who would have thought MK would ever be made into a movie...let alone a good one!)
IIRC, Jill's the main character.
Isn't that...kinda the point? I don't think he was meant to be portrayed as a nice guy?
Like i said in the other article... Remember when Capcom didn't need to resort to sex appeal to try to interest RE fans? Remember when the RE characters all dressed like proper special forces and police officers? Even though Jill's RE3 outfit was skimpy, it still made sense because it was her casual wear.
But Rachel's outfit...it just looks like pointless sex appeal for the sake of pointless sex appeal. It doesn't even make sense. What sort of special forces o...
Don't get me wrong, I think the game itself looks good. But Rachel looks absolutely ridiculous in every sense of the word.
Ever heard of Vaporware? Just because a dev releases gameplay and info, doesn't necessarily mean the game they're making will ever come out.
Not that I think FFvsXIII is vaporware...but I'm starting to get the feeling Square aren't as far into development as they've been claiming.
Wow...six years. I remember being in middle school when it was announced. I'm now in my second year of university, and it still doesn't look like FFvsXIII is anywhere near release. :(
Dear Square Enix,
Slow down. Make the games you have ALREADY announced.
And don't announce a new game, or even hint at a sequel, until you have actually completed and released the game/s that are already in the making.
Considering the millions and millions of dollars that went into making these movies, I'm surprised at least one of them didn't end up being a fantastic blockbuster.
I mean, statistically you'd think at least one would be good with the amount of cash that went into making them. :(
"But to have little children in the game and you just simply and mindlessly slash and bash kill them is another different story. That would be just wrong. I wouldn't buy it because I would be disturbed by it. I'm sure a lot of ppl would feel the same."
That's kind of the point though. Killing children (hell, killing anyone) IS disturbing. Yet sadly, that's what needs to be done in order to survive. Zombies don't discriminate in who they attack; t...
So? Developers shouldn't have to bend over backwards just to please the media OR a country's stupid rating systems. They should be allowed to make the games they want to make.
Games will never be taken seriously as a medium if developers keep removing anything remotely controversial, in fear that someone somewhere might be offended by it.
And if people are upset by the killing of children in a game, that's GOOD. Killing zombified children is suppo...

My thoughts exactly. Remember when the RE characters all dressed like proper special forces and police officers? Even Jill's RE3 outfit was skimpy, yet still made sense because it was her casual wear.
But Rachel's outfit...it just looks like pointless sex appeal for the sake of pointless sex appeal. It doesn't even make sense. It looks just as silly as Excella's "business dress" from RE5.
Hasn't every Japanese RE game either had a dual Japanese/English option or just an English option? Or am I mistaken?
That's fair enough. I guess it just seemed odd to me because during my last trip to Japan I couldn't escape AKB48 references. They had a massive billboard with some of the 'main' girls on a massive just outside my host-sister's house, stickers and calendars and bookmarks at the counter of many convenience stores, big posters of them inside malls and the local train station, etc.
I didn't see too many Arashi or Morning Musume stuff though. But there wa...
"are social, personalizable, and story-based—elements that research shows spark women’s interest."
It's interesting...I was thinking about why women don't seem to be all that interested in video games (and why many of my female friends don't "get" why I like gaming), and I think this is a big reason. A lot of women probably don't realize just how social or story-oriented games have become nowadays. Hell, my own friends are still convinced g...
Really? I mean, I don't want to sound like a dick but AKB48 really are everywhere in Japan. They're everywhere on tv, they're always at the top of the charts, their merchandise is in various stores. It's like Lady Gaga's popularity in America x1000.
