RE4 is technically a superior game to RE6 in every way
BUT! id still rather play RE6
because RE4’s story is super boring and i hate whiny white ho ashley
the walking dead winning game of the year at the VGAs was such a huge deal to me because it was genuinely amazing AND it restored some of my faith in where gaming is headed.
i really hope it inspires CAPCOM in particular.
i adored RE6, but it really was disappointing in a lot of ways. it was somehow too much and not enough at the same time. it was too bloated with action, too hollywood, they just tried way too hard without putting enough faith in their own creativity… or us.
there just wasn’t enough time spent on fleshing out a story and developing their characters… especially jake, who was tragically dubbed one of the biggest dorks of the year from game informer. i think that could have easily been avoided if they had bothered to actually put all the unlockable blurbs of his story you got from emblems into the game itself. its crazy to think how little we got out of those 4hrs of cutscenes…
the walking dead was a dlc game, it was made by a team of 30 people, it was carried almost entirely on it’s story and characters. the gameplay was pretty simplistic and sometimes a little rocky - it still won game of the year! it’s like the total opposite of everything RE6 was.
i’m not saying RE should emulate the walking dead, it’s just i hope CAPCOM realizes the mistakes they made thinking we all want to see exploding airplanes over character development. RE6 could have been so much more!
SO i just beat the RE6 demo
I absolutely LOVED it
i’m really over-the-moon excited for the full game. i can’t even…. i just…
I remember when Code Veronica first came out and Steve burnside was a universally hated character. He was whiny, useless, and overall just… Bad.
Then a bunch of kids played Darkside Chronicles - where they re-wrote his character a bit - and all of a sudden Steve has a decently big fanbase and people actually think he’s coming back… This wouldn’t bug me at all, but some people STILL think jake is steve (my god). Get over iittt
omg ada’s campaign brings back PUZZLES T_T *weeps tears of joy*
wasn’t their some big Resident Evil news planned for today?
or did i dream hearing about that?
well whatever i guess we know it’s ada’s campaign
drunk resident evil rant
hey i’m a nice girl and i like being nice to everyone… but i’ve just drank a bottle of wine, and i need to get some SASS out!
SO HERE IT IS
RE6 Demo Impressions
Because i’m a hopeless fangirl and spent 60 bucks on a game i had little interest in (Dragon’s Dogma), i got early access to the RE6 demo! Totally worth it :P
I just beat all 3 scenarios, so here are my thoughts!
i want the europe collectors edition of RE6 tbh
i hope we’re not only getting anthology and archives, i already own everything in them both… u_u Q_Q wah etc
edit: shipping charges are crazy to canada but i may bite the bullet anyway
this was disappointing to read. :( i follow Destructoid regularly and i can say Holmes is a fair guy, not a hater. i’ve heard enough from the “resident evil is dead *flings poo*” people and just sweep their opinions under the rug.
personally, i’m looking forward to leon’s scenario the least, so i’m not too distraught. also, this is just the first 10 mins of relatively long story, and there’s still a few months before it comes out… i have hope! he did reports on chris and jake’s too, and both much more positive.
and maybe i’m a blind fangirl, but i can forgive gameplay inperfections for story. i love the resident evil universe and it’s characters, despite how flawed and crazy it is. i’d probably even play a numbered instalment in the series if it was a crossover with gummi bears. :P
just the trailers have had me beaming with excitement, so if the game is half of what it showcases, i’m happy
edit: a happy alternative … here are some much more positive impressions from a diehard fan http://www.relyonhorror.com/articles/rehorror-resident-evil-6-preview-trailer-analysis-e3-2012/
what if ada’s real name is carla radames? or what if it’s her new alias, she just never corrected leon or wesker in 4? we know so little about her…it’s not hard to believe.
also: jake/sherry OTP!
how i look when i read the posts of people who still think Jake Muller is somehow Steve Burnside.
Stop. Stop it. it’s a new character. it’s done. It’s not steve, he’s not going to be reunited with claire and they’re not going to fly away on unicorns together.
i have to say, as torturous as it is dealing with all these “teases” from capcom about RE6, it’s a pretty brilliant marketing move. i’m so HYPED!!!
oh and fuck yes sherry birkin!
but if she’s evil, i will cry. it would be like finding out Taylor Swift is an axe murderer. LOOKIT THAT FACE! she’s just too cute. >_<
