Capcom released the first screenshots and art from
Looks great, can't wait!
Great? Really? The visuals look crap to me. Hope this is only pre-alpha. Like the fact that it's more horror focused, but the main characters and enemy design are awful. This isn't a "great" first sign from Capcom that Resident Evil is back in my opinion. This is more of a "ugh.. they want another RE game?! ok.. here is $10k.. see what you can do"
It doesn't look like crap, but it's definitely not a next-gen Resident Evil. I agree something is off with the overall look, it's like a awkward mix of a PS360 game, with some next-gen textures thrown in (maybe it's the filter). Graphically I would have thought this was a Wii U game, but it's an episodic series, so it's more than likely a PSN / XBL game which is more understandable on the graphics side, since it's easier to get games out each month if you don't have to worry about high-end graphics. Speaking of Wii U, I don't understand why this isn't coming to it when it's coming to PC / PS4 / XBO / PS3 / 360. Resident Evil does well in Japan, and the first game sold awful on Wii U with just 100k sales total, but the 360 & PS3 version only hit 200k and 600k copies with their 80m install base.
Yeah these graphics so far aren't impressive. Maybe it's from being spoiled by TLOU or Destiny, but I'm just not hyped for this one.
That's what I thought I saw the graphics. Nothing special at all. They fucked up this series so bad. It went terrible after RE4. They need to bring the old zombies back
i agree with you . the main characters design , the stupid zombies with knives and pipe , the cop cop, all this things will make the game looks like crap . damn you crapcom even claire face i don't like it .
There is always a hater quit ruining what other people like troll.
@gamer4lifeyo Yeah, they have really messed up Resident Evil. They have no passion for this series anymore and it shows. They just wanna milk this cow until it dies a horrible death and it's sad in my opinion. This series and us fans deserve better quality, our support and the series itself has given so much to Capcom and is largely responsible for the company's success. @ABizzel1 Agree to disagree, but i find these visuals to be crap. We're closing in on 2015 and those visuals are just awful. Be it as it may, that this is an episodic take on RE series, that doesn't justify those visuals from a company that has Panta Rhei engine in their arsenal. It may be that they're not funding this title enough... which is also sad. ..makes me wonder if another, perhaps bigger, RE title is in the works? ...One can only hope.
Exactaly...i'll belive it when i see the full game,which if the track records anything to go by will be another generic cod wannabe!!! The games industry lost its way years ago and imo needs another crash to get rid of the overbloated AAA,everything needs to appeal to everyone,homogenation that is the AAA games industry. Would be good to see what crawls from the ashes??
Looking really good! im loving the first game so far.
No male character ? Outrageous ! It's XXI century and there's no male character ? UNACCEPTABLE! #reverseACUNITYalloveragain
You're just as much of a problem as those you mock. Crap like this just gives them ammunition and lends credence to their claims. Knock it off.
His sarcasm is not the problem, it's indeed solely the cry babies he mocks.
lol. resident evil series has been quite mixed with their main characters. think the only time people had a go at capcom was re5 when shooting black zombies became a big deal. but i understand what your saying. its ridiculous how artist cannot make a choice about main characters without gamers making a fuss about it.
Looks interesting i need to play this for myself first tho.
Can we please not have the zombies hold a gun or any kind of weapon!
That's what i thought when i saw the picture of the monster holding a hammer. Do we really need another monster running around with a giant hammer? so uninspired and boring.
There not zombies though.
Fans want the old school zombies back. Not sure what the deal is with Capcom and there love for weapon wielding infected...
Claire was beautiful even on PS1, but now she looks ugly.
Capcom are obviously moving away from the stereotype glamour model lead character.
something does look a little wierd, definitely face has become skinnier. looks very different from the cg movie. actually, i may have had a hard time guessing who this person was if it wasnt for the reveal. anyway, more claire red please. just seems strange without her wearing any red clothing.
lol she spend decades with the zombie its natural she'll end up looking like that
It might be that she is a little older now, which explains her 'off' look. Either way it is nice to see her back but i hope that Capcom doesn't 'COD' her by making her too machine like. Claire was awesome cause she was just a civilian caught in a bad situation. Last we saw her in the movie she was part of some movement group. Hope to see she still has that vulnerability but still be bad ass.
Nah. She just hit "the wall."
what makes me happy is that the characters are not in their tactical gear which makes them seem a little bit more vulnerable and that is good for a game thats supposed to be an entry in a horror series.
So glad that Claire is back!
god i hope the visuals IMPROVE...especially for the PS4 version, this is a crossgen game, right? ...that might explain it.
So Moira is Ashley 2.0 ?
nope its ellie for comparison sake this is moira http://gematsu.com/gallery/... now take a little look at good ol ellie http://htcone.mobi/wp-conte...
Guess the game is gonna get released digital like the walking dead series read it up on ign but after that there will be the disc version.... ugh i am getting bad vibes cause of this now i hope am i am wrong and the game is great.
Episodic. Keep it Crapcom. This will be the first RE game I miss.
With a full retail release later.
will print more $
Those screens better be the last gen versions.. *Edit* Just saw this was broken into 4 episodes at $6 a pop but you can buy a seasons pass with all the episodes for $25 dollars... Capcom trying to get that extra dollar lol
I'm inclined to disagree since Capcom would have launched the whole title at full retail price. This is much cheaper.
It's in episodes. Meaning they'll be released in pieces weeks apart from one another, like the walking dead or the wolf among us.
Zombies that hold some weapons... noooo.
the episodic format kinda killed my interest, now I doubt there'll be a raid mode which was my favorite thing about revelations 1
Even if it is an episodic game, I'll buy it if the gameplay is gorgeous. I think I need to see some gameplay videos.
Am I the only one who hate the fact that now every Resi game has an AI partner in it?
I love the co op in these games and i hope they stay in them but i wish when your playing by yourself you can deactivate your AI partner.
You are not alone.
Claire looks like a retextured Jill LOL Capcom saving their dollars.
Hopefully this is a survival horror game Capcom if you are listening we're sick of this third person shooter crap
Doubtful They'll say it is survival horror but it won't be
These RE:R character designers are terrible, first they ruin Jill and now they do the same to Claire. Still looking forward to the game but that plus the not so great graphics are a bit of a let down.
I thought Jill looked hot in Revelations 1 if I'm being honest.
Heres to the Dreamcast! the console that brought us the only hot Claire. I bet capcom could render the CG Claire model from RE: CV In their new panty-raid engine and have it be super badass. but theyre just cheap lazy jerks. http://i11.photobucket.com/...
Wow... someone hit Claire (?) with the ugly shovel... twice.
bubble up! lol
These Screens look great! i like the look of the enemies. I know Ill probably get flamed, but hey at least they don't have GUNS. If they walk like a duck and talk like a duck then its a Zombie.
Is it just me or Claire really didn't aged well? I remember her looking stunning on the Dreamcast. She looks like someone else now. Kind of ugly, actually. Oh well... I'm still happy she's back.
I know what you mean. Claire is my favourite female Resi character. She had the most likeable personality. I hope they kept her voice actor. But I know crapcom too well, they probably got a 'serious' voice actor to play her this time.
I still don't understand why Capcom insists on shafting Nintendo gamers. I have all of the seventh generation consoles and a PlayStation 4 and Wii U, but I refuse to support this game on any of them. Episodic content and completely cutting out Nintendo is just a move in poor taste. You're telling me it makes more sense to develop for less powerful platforms (XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3) than Wii U? Not to mention, PlayStation 3's pain-in-the-but architecture. Don't get me wrong, PS3 was my favorite platform last gen, but you're telling me they would rather develop on THAT than the Wii U? Install base aside, it would obviously run better on Wii U, WHICH has a larger install base than XBOX One at the moment and likely will by release time. Some developers make me sick. They often preach, "Don't give up, Nintendo! We need you!" and very few of them are even bothering to do anything to show support. Nintendo helped make them what they are back in the 90s and even on Gamecube, not to mention their countless shameful cash-ins on the Wii because of its massive install base. Going forward, I won't support any Capcom titles, new or old. I hate how divisive the industry has become and this was just in poor taste completely. Now if they release the whole game with bonus content on Wii U, I will buy it then. Yeah yeah, inferior version, whatever. If you aren't a lifelong gamer from the 80s/90s era, I don't think you'll understand why I feel so strongly about it, but Nintendo means a lot to me as a gaming company and I don't want to see actions like this destroy them. We already pretty much lost Sega and that was a tough pill to swallow.
