Producer Jun Takeuchi has said he'd like to see the Resident Evil series rebooted after Dark Chronicles.
and throw away all the "action game crap" from RE5. that game (along with GTA4) are 2 of my all-time gaming disappointments. and before it starts: this has NOTHING to do with which versions of either game it is.........360 or ps3 - they're the same disappointing games.
I hope they do bring back the horror elements. But I have a bad feeling that Capcom will go the other direction and make it much more action oriented like COD and Gears.
and most fans will be happy! the tank-like control is maybe a non-issue considering RE games was always using that control before but in 5, there is no horror! not even close to compare with the like of Dead Space or even Silent Hill home coming. (although the later is not that great but still clinching to the roots of horror!)
bring back the basic games to life. give us the old camera, the ZOMBIES not stupid diseased monsters from re4 and re5. and bring back nemesis and the lickers back ^^
And have been playing the originals on the GameCube recently. And to be honest, RE:Zero, Nemesis and the RE one remake are true to the series and are awesome. This RE5 stuff is crap. I even wonder why I loved RE4 so much. RE4 was good but it started the RE games down the wrong path. They need to get back to the scary stuff and less action shooting. Item management Capcom, that is where it is at.
They really dissapointed me with RE5, all the crap about "We are bringing horror into daylight and we will still keep the RE feel of the older games"... I remember reading that in an article back in 08. Oh well, i truly hope the RE reboot won't dissapoint... because that would withou a doubt kill the franchise for me.
...RE5 was decent but as far as horror games go Dead Space and Siren:BC are the next gen heralds of this genre on the console side and I hope to one day see RE returning to their roots.
ITS JUST NOT A RESIDENT EVIL GAME WHEN THE ZOMBIES ARE USING DYNAMITE, CROSSBOWS AND MACHINE GUNS AGAINST YOU. Seriously, Zombie snipers? Cmon Capcom. Cmon.
Not another Mansion trash incident game AGAIN!? HOW MANY TIMES WILL WE PLAY THAT MANSION AGAIN!??? The fact is, it's also a REBOOT! Nothing new! Well, if they are doing a reboot, it will be refreshing because they totally farked up the storyline! Africa, uroboros, ganados, viruses/aids/diseases, tyrants all these bullsh man.
and by "series reboot" i think they mean taking the game in a different direction - not redoing a previous game. (although i'd love to see RE2 done on this gen of systems)
actually reboot is about throwing away everything that has happened and restart from scratch while also changing things while still keep the story generally the same it's hard to explain but just think of Friday The 13th 2009 whenever they talk about a reboot . also what's wrong with the mansion it is were the original survival horror was located in i say lets go back to the mansion it's still a scary mansion
All I know is that I want zombies back. Enough of those Ganados....
there were never zombies in RE, just animated corpses. Its all a virus thats it. when they start poping out of graves then there zombies.
Actually, zombies did pop out of graves in Re: DC, RE: CV and I think RE3 as well. Just saying. I actually grew tired of zombies and survival horror theme. It got exremely lame after Zero and RE3 with the boring tank controls and few enemies. I'm glad RE4 took the series in a new direction, but RE5 actually didn't quite live up to expectations for me. Like a lot of people say, whatever happened to the heat and sun affects in RE5. The loss of Shinji Mikami or whatever his name was a huge blow.
@3.1 Umm...aren't animated corpses called zombies? In any event, whatever those creatures were called - in your anal retentive definition - in those first three games...that's what I want to see more of.
@3 I agree I miss blowing a zombie in half with a shotgun and it's still crawling on the ground coming for you, or blasting hordes of zombies and body parts flying off, ah the good times. Maybe they will bring the reals zombies back, the slow, stupid, and endless at times hordes, of the first couple games. And do away with the lame ass matrix bosses that can take more damage than the first 4 or 5 bosses combined.
does anyone (besides me) think a horror game along the lines of the story in the old movie "warning sign" sound good?...... a huge, multi-level defense plant that has a virus get away and infect the 100's (or 1000's) of people inside. players could play as one of those who don't get infected (this could be a good co-op game as well) and have multiple objectives (stay alive; find anti-toxin; uncover what the plant is really doing.....etc..) i think it sounds fun. i was watching this recently and thinking that the RE franchise could head in this direction. forgo the mansion and africa. a large defense plant offers up lots of areas to explore, viral zombies to fight and conspiricies to uncover. just a thought.
i hope not is like crap game r5 imo... i want re series like of era of ps1.
i want remake on RE1 or RE2 or RE3 on PS3 only.
the only thing I do not want changed from RE4 and 5 is the camera. PLEASE GOD, change anything but the camera.
you son of b!tch disagreerrerrr, you actually liked RE:5? I mean the offline/online co-op was sweet. Now just imagine co-op in the era of the original RE's. Or f!ck that I'd be happy with just goin back to oldschool, enough of this squid-men BS and over the shoulder retardedness.
check the facts guy the wii showed all the penny pinchers out there the real market.games aren't for the hard core like you and me,developers now want to make every game pick up and play..for the casual gamer,what ever that is ...our days are done.the question is what are you prepared to do about it?
Maybe you could play as a kid.. you know, vulnerable and all. Or it would be freaky to have to fight off little zombie kids in an elementary school or something.. Whatever it is, it needs to focus on horror again; Silent Hill and Resident Evil team UNITE!!!
this is what the RE reboot should be like . have the mansion be 10 times bigger maybe as or more bigger than a whole university have it be more free roaming like Dead Rising and the mansion should be extremely dark in some areas so you can use a flashlight , also the zombies should be able to walk around the mansion and not have 2 or 3 zombies programmed to be there have it like you could play the whole game and not see 1 zombie in lets say the kitchen second play thru there a few zombies than walked in . keep the gameplay from RE4 the same minus the laser sight and go back to 6 item slots no co-op less ammo and have the mansion be alive like with some areas covered with Plant 42's vines and let ppl walk outside and introduce new B.O.Ws and most importantly keep Jun Takeuch away from production he should be allowed anywhere near it not even to bring coffee
i think it's funny how the re series needs a reboot 2 games after getting the game that rebooted the series, re4. RE5 destroyed all the progress that re4 made for the series. 5 isn't a terrible game but it definitely is the weakest out of the main cannon games. Chris's over the top muscles, it was obvious who the bird woman was, wesker turned into a power hungry douche raving on about being a god and other nonsense. Sheva imo was that game's only saving grace. I know her AI wasn't perfect but as a character she was the only believable one and her voice acting was brilliant. I'd like to see the series go back to it's horror roots, re4 nailed it perfectly. It doesn't have to have over the top action with a half assed cover system. Just make an action oriented, nerve racking experience that has lots of scares.
Now bring bring back the CLASSIC Resident Evil and Jill Valentine as the main character. Can't wait to see what's next in the Resident Evil franchise.
RE4 was kind of considered a "reboot" for the series when it was released. It's not like the series needs to be totally re-imagined. They got the balance right in 4, but 5 became more of a third-person shooter, and less about survival, horror or managing your supplies. Just scale back the shooting, and quit trying to make the game like an action movie. And please...no more rail shooters on the Wii. The RE4 Wii edition was the absolute BEST version of that game. Use the same graphics engine for all I care. Just give us a new storyline and location.
He said that in all the videos when the game was coming out. If you guys got the hint book they said they have been using the engine from the Game Cube, all next gen did was allow them to add effects and more polygons to the game. I am like the rest of you guys, give me zombies from the first two games, make the plot simple, T-Virus experiment gone wrong, the dead come alive, and include all the horror elements that were missing from the series since the second game.
silent hill for the wii and ps2 look good. and its a survival horror game too. anyway, it seems RE evolved into a run 'n gun somewhere in 4. i hope this reboot doesn't mean they going to stick with the run 'n gun or rail shooters, and get rid of the survival horror. i'd like to take out any enemy with a gun or something. like in RE:DS it was annoying running out of ammo, and having to use the knife. i couldn't hit anything with the knife, and when i did, it didn't seem to do anything. i'd like enough ammo to get through the game, but not so much that it evolves into a run 'n gun. like how leaves a bazooka on the floor?!
of resi CV would be fantastic would love to see Clair in next gen graphics lol.
shooting zombies n monsters is fun but taking it to unrealistic stuff like parasites n terrorist act just killed the good feeling of the game . see Dead Space did the exact formula kill dead people who were mutated into tiny pieces. reboot the game after RE2 n kill off everyone in the world and have every RE character ( except survivor and dead aim) all trapped in one city and have ways to escape. open world zombie game with great puzzles, excellent guns , and crappy voice acting will be going on the right direction
ppl began to complain about races so they want to change that
Forget a reboot, the fans want RE2 and RE3 remade. Why don't they do that? They remade RE1 plenty of times and even had the cheek to re-release a bare-bones version of REmake on the Wii. Oh wait, *Smacks forehead*, Crapcom never listens to it's fans! I forgot about that!
