hey remember the cancelled version of RE4? i would totally play this! :D
i think another reason why i’m not phased by resident evil’s departure from “survival horror” and totally loving the action direction is because the only resident evil that truly scared me was REmake.
resident evil has always been so… cornbally. in an awesome way.
silent hill, fatal frame, and eternal darkness were where the real scares were at when i was a wee lass
if there is not a scene in RE6 where ada bitch slaps her clone across the face i will be real sad
some people are thinking ada’s co-op partner “helper” might be a robot because of this screenshot
wall-e? hell nooo i hope that isn’t true
i was thinking that maybe she doesn’t have a full campaign like the rest of the characters, and the segments you play as her are situational, so her “helper” may be leon or sherry or whoever she’s run into.
not a … robot
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
my reaction to (most of) the fanart porn in the Resident Evil tag
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/
a rant about RE6 (aka: tl;dr)
i feel like i’ve posted a lot of rants defending RE6, but i guess the biggest reason why i feel so defensive about it’s success is because it’s the Resident Evil i’ve always wanted, and i’m having trouble understanding why some fellow fans aren’t as excited as i am.
there’s a lot of misguided nostalgia with the older fans, and while i understand that (because i am one), it’s time to get real - without the gameplay changes in RE4, Resident Evil would probably be struggling. maybe dead. who knows.
Gaming has changed so much so fast, and i believe Resident Evil had to change to survive. if you think the series could get by on a bunch of old nerds who still love the classic Resident Evil style, you’re kidding yourself. (No offence.)
i’ve been in love with the series since RE2, but i always felt there was something missing. Resident Evil has always been cheeseball, and while i love me some cheese, the stories always felt kinda one-dimensional. i’ve always wanted to feel really connected to the universe and characters in an emotional way.
while RE6 is definitely going to have some cheese (you can tell by the cartoon villain they have as the main baddy) this is the first time we’ve truly seen a focus on character development, dialogue, real drama, and a rich well-rounded story. i even get a hunch they may be trying romance with the Jake and Sherry, something that RE has tried a little bit in the past (leon/ada, claire/steve) but always felt kinda contrived and left many unsatisfied.
don’t get me wrong - i don’t think RE6 is going to be the first game to win an oscar, or even taken as seriously as games like the last of us, but as a classic RE fan this kind of consideration for our love for the characters is something i honestly never saw coming. (Sherry birkin is back, holy shit.)
the gameplay in 6 may not be perfect (that HUD is U.G.L.Y) but i’m willing to bet at least the story will be the best we’ve ever seen from the resident evil series. also, with the exception of RE4, when has resident evil’s gameplay mechanics ever been really good?!? think about it. We got used to it as kids, but they all had wonky controls and shitty shooting mechanics. at the time that felt like it added to the survival horror element, but the truth is: the controls weren’t great.
shinji mikami abandoned his series after RE4 and Capcom was left to pick up the pieces, and i think they’re doing a great job. resident evil is my game, and i think after 13 years of fangirling, it’s safe to say i’m staying on this ship.
While I love Jill and Claire, i really don’t know why people were complaining about them not being in RE6. There’s quite a few characters in the game already… and this is the first time Chris and Leon have been in the same game. Ever.
Resident Evil is kinda notorious for not letting characters cross paths and leaving plot holes at every corner. I’m still awe-struck that Sherry Birkin is back after 13 years. I never thought i’d see the day…
I feel old. Haha.
edit: people actually thought two of the most popular characters in the entire series wouldn’t be back eventually? … okay.
omg resident evil fandom
y u so freaking negative?! nobody knows how anything is going to be until the game is actually released and we’ve all played it. i’ve been a resident evil fan for a really long time… i remember when people were spewing shit about how bad RE4 would be because it was such a drastic change in the series. in the end, they all ate their words.
you may not like some new twists and turns the series has decided to take, but maybe it will be done really well. RE5 wasn’t exactly mind-blowing but it was by no means an awful game. i’ve watched all of developer interviews for 6, and they sound like they genuinely love the series, learnt from the mistakes of 5, and want to make an excellent game.
i guess what i’m trying to say is…calm yourself. wait. and then judge. the game might not be doomed to shit.
it makes sense for sherry to have some abilities. she’s technically infected with the G-Virus, which turned her father into a hulking giant-eyeball-arm man (with multiple forms). we don’t know how it’s going to play out, but i trust they’re not going to pull anything too stupid. it’s not like superhumans are anything NEW to the RE series…and what did you THINK she was going to do? stand there?
