It has been reported that Resident Evil: Revelations will feature checkpoint microtransactions.
The ugly got uglier I really hope no one buys this straight away, if you really want it wait till the full edition comes out then when it goes down in price You are not going to "fix" Capcom by supporting silly shit like this...especially the horrible direction the series is going in.
RE series can go die for all i care we have shinji mikami.
The Evil Within 2 will be better than Resident Evil 7.
The Evil Within (If he sticks by his word) will be the last game he directs... so no, we no longer have Shinji Mikami.
given the success of tew, im sure he'll get a bigger budget and team this time around. tew was solid but it lacked polish. with shinji mikami and hideo kojima making survival horror, who needs resident evil @lord never heard of that
Looks like capcom is really hurting of cash. They are using every dirty trick in the business just to make a little extra money.
Yeah, because The Evil Within was so good, right? Be honest, it fell WAY below expectations. I'm not going to be near-sighted by some buzz word. A game is either good or it isn't, and while The Evil Within wasn't bad by any means, it fell way below good/great. I'll be honest, I'm no fan of the Resi series (of late) either. Revelations was good if not great. The last great Resident Evil was 4. Not just a great Resi game but arguably one of the best games of all time. Yeah, no tank controls, vague puzzles and obvious padding was always going to annoy the 'traditionalist', but the series DESPERATELY needed a shake up.
I feel like people bash Evil Within for the wrong reasons. The story sucks... but so does RE's and it gets a pass. It's not that scary, but neither is ANY resident evil outside of maybe REmake. Other complaints were about the games difficulty but i didnt find it too hard at any point. It isnt as polished as it should be, but the art style and atmosphere are there.
AHHH YES! The same Shinji Mikami who laid the foundation for the current RE games because even he wanted to move on from the old formula.
I knew the game was too good to be true especially with its initial price. My guess they will make money hard as hell to get to force people to buy $#it with real money. Even if the full edition comes it wont fix anything, probably will have you gain double crystals or something since its 1$ more than if you buy the episodes separately.
Another Ca$hcom game being boycotted.
It looks like Capcom has no understanding of what SURVIVAL horror is or what made RE great in the first place.
What is with this BS Free-2-play concept in a pay-2-play episodic game?
To be honest, this doesn't surprise me at all. I was wondering how long it would take Capcom to go down this road.
Dont be surprised if it isn't just Capcom who employ this tactic this gen. The only way to make a stand is to not buy it, however, I suspect many of those complaining - particularly if the game gets favourable reviews - will be the very same emptying their pockets for a taste of this.
Not surprised and agree Just look at street fighter and on disc dlc - the works
Lol. Crapcom strikes again. Scumbags.
They never seize to amaze me with their level of greed.
Well my skepticism just graduated to piss off. I never thought we would be at this point.
Arcade gaming is back boys!
What was the worst Cashcom abuse? Maybe asuras wrath dlc that you need to get to see the real ending? Or the dragons dogma re-release a year after the original?
lol so basically if u fail mission its restart in the beginning or pay for checkpoint F%$K u crapcom
That was the norm in the original Raid mode in Revelations 1 but this here is major BS. I know why they did this. On Abyss mode which is hard mode, enemies where just way too many and getting the trinity rank which you must kill all enemies, get no damage, be on the same lvl as enemies or lower which was just extremely hard at times. Its not fair to give the edge to people who are willing to pay for the easy route.
Interesting, so that means Capcom is just continuing with their half-hearted developed games.
Yep, sad day for gaming, and they were doing so well.
Doesn't seem that big of a deal to me. According to what I read you can pay to unlock weapons in raid mode and if you can't get through the game using skill and patience you could always just buy extra health.
It's a SURVIVAL horror game not some standard FPS.
and suddenly RE HD became even better (not even sure that was possible). I'm very tempted to cancel my pre-order for this now. I'm not buying into these crappy business models. Screw you, Crapcom.
Well RE HD is a complete package with no nasty micro transactions attached.
I was angry that this was not on 3ds, but not any more as the game seems to be crap anyways.
What the hell happened Capcom? We used to be so close.
And now you get none of my munnies. How'd that work out for you?
I'm not a fan of microtransactions, but a resurrection scroll isn't really a big deal. As long as it forfeits any rankings. Though, if you're dying, you probably won't be high in rank anyway. If they turn the weapon unlocks into a 3 month grind vs paying $10 type, that's a different story.
Interest lost damn you Capcom why....
Capcom, you're dead to me.
I'll likely buy the game if it's good, but I won't buy into these micro-transactions.
Hell no! Hopefully the checkpoint micro-transactions in campaign are a misunderstanding or I ain't buying.
I don't really like these but hopefully they shouldn't impact the game as it is. Dead Space 3 had them and I never felt I was forced to use them. Honestly I'd be much more offended if they said Keith and Quint were returning.
I will not buy this game then.
they're not charging for continues. The game saves at checkpoints, and they're charging for an item that allows you to revive right where you died instead of going back from the last checkpoint. You can also get those items by playing the game. It's still shitty, but less so.
Micro transactions I'd expect in an indie game, or buying season passes, DLC, or cellphone games. This title I am skipping I hate micro transactions.
This will continue until people actually don't buy the game instead of just saying they're not buying it and go off and buy it anyway. Your wallet will always speak louder than you, people.
Um unlike all the crybabies here this isn't gonna stop me from getting this game.
F$uck you Capcom, kiss my hairy, pimply a$$
this totally killed my interest in the game and this after Revelations 1 is one of my favorite games of all times
Of you would like to play a good resident evil game then replay 1-4, or play The Evil Within.
piss off Microtransactions
