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!
ranting about RE6 again. surprise!
some quick thoughts on RE6
at first i was pretty indecisive on how i felt about RE6, but now i can say i really love it. it’s a total mess. a total hot mess.
it’s one of the weirdest experiences i’ve ever had with a video game before. it’s all over the place - especially jake’s campaign. at certain points i felt like i was playing a ghetto metal gear, then a ghetto uncharted lmao. by the end though, i totally loved it.
my only REAL gripe with it, is that i wish they had cut out some of the QTEs and exploding bus/car/boat/airplane cutscenes and added in more of the characters actually talking.
wow, reviews for RE6 are all over the place
they go from as high as 9s…. to as low as 3s.
so yeah, seems most critics either absolutely love it or completely despise it.
as a huge fan i suppose i’m biased, but the most reasonable reviews i read seem to be the higher ones. They point out RE6’s flaws but say the overall experience is very much worth it, and really that’s what i care about. i’ve ranted before about how RE has always been a flawed series.
the low ones hate on it for emulating the typical 3rd person shooter but doing a poor job of it, and whine about RE losing it’s “creative spark”. to me it just sounds like the same purist whining we’ve heard on message boards and tumblr for the past 6 months, so whatever.
everyone’s entitled to their opinion of course, i just wouldn’t be worried about those reviews if you’ve actually been anticipating RE6.
So i have no self-control and i think i just spoiled the biggest thing i was anticipating in RE6.
i hate my life
Here ya go. Still hoping its a misprint or something
check out what my old manager brought me back from the gamestop/eb games conference! :D
it’s the little flashlight leon wears on his ear! it’s super bright. pretty cool :)
If I was going to stop playing the Resident Evil games because of some gameplay imperfections, I probably would have put RE1 down after 5 minutes.
Even if you go back and play RE4 today - Leon controls like a rusty shopping cart. :P
I’m just sayin my entire enjoyment of the series required forgiving some flaws, and that isn’t changing for RE6.
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…
omg i just realized
guys RE6 is going to be sitting in the backroom at work for like a week before i can sell it/buy it myself.
every time i go back there and see them just sitting there on a shelf i will probably have a mini freak out and roll around on the floor screaming
we will get the guide books a week early too and it will be SO HARD not to paw through it and totally spoil the whole game on myself aaaaaaAaaaAA
the lawd is testing me
the fake ending spoilers for RE6 are sooooo uninspired
somebody creative needs to make up some so i can at least get a little worried
“you’re going to have to change what you expect from a resident evil title for RE6”
welp as someone who has played every RE title on launch day since 2, what do i expect from a resident evil game?
- zombies/the infected ✓
- unstoppable giant mutated monsters ✓
- a virus made by bioterrorists ✓
- familiar/sexy characters ✓
- cheesy B movie style plot ✓
- cartoon-like main villain ✓
- one liners ✓
- shooting ✓
- puzzles ✓
well gee it’s all there (◕‿◕✿)
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
