Resident Evil 6 News Coming Soon, Say Capcom

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

Ew, another medicore game and milking out their franchises. There is no more HORROR in such games.

Kinda kills my excitement for the franchise when they say they want it out of the door as soon as possible. Rushed games rarely come out well.

Resident 5 was a disappointment enough for me, now I'm not too optimistic about Resi 6 rebooting my love for everything Resident Evil.

i hope they rework/get rid of the shitty story...
and inventory system...
and ai partner...

maybe we can play as civilians fighting for their lives in racoon city before it gets nuked
bring back the cool weapons and upgrade system
let us fight zombies, zombie dogs, lickers, crimson heads, regenarators, crows, axe/chainsaw guys, nemises and maybe some umbrella soldiers trying to wipe out everyone
and have multiplayer
yeah

Considering what happened to one of my favourite villians in 5, the RE series has lost me unless something extraordinary happens.

ALRIGHT, This might work if you go back to basics. Tricell is the new Umbrella, a new city, a new zombie break-out, Leon as main character and Claire sees a return as well alongside Chris.

Please, please no AI player. And actual scares this time. Do you remember those capcom? Honestly, resi 5 was a good action game, but as horror, it failed 99% of the time, using no new tricks, and yet failing to rise a jump out of me in even their classical gags, such as dogs jumping out of nowhere.

Oh, and as much as Wesker is sheer ridiculous villain gold...

And zombies! As overspammed in videogames as they are, I'd like to see them return to their signature franchise. Because feral villagers wielding farm tools just isn't as creepy as dead things that despite being living impaired, are still trying to eat you.

Oh, please not more of this! I don't need more of this everybody say it's a great game and then Yahtzee says it's horrible and nobody lisens. Nobody needs another Resident Evil game.

" increase its output of major titles"

Doesnt this mean to rush major titles? like make bad games?

They could always do something like a hive mind invading a city/mansion. Maybe have an unkillable monster sometimes appear/chase you. However, if they did that they would have to have a lot less enemies than were in 4 and 5 (and a lot less ammo of course. Remember, some of the scariest parts of horror games are when you're waiting for the enemy to appear, especially when you know it's there).

However, I'd like them to move away from any established enemy and try to give us something strange and unknown. And for the love of God, DON'T TELL US HOW TO KILL IT IN PREVIEWS AND THE TUTORIAL LEVEL . It ruins the mystery of the enemy.

Does anyone really care about resident evil anymore? I mean, the bad acting in the first game was funny, but the gameplay sucked up until RE4. Resident Evil used to be about zombies and evil corporations, now it's about humorless cliches and giant worms that look like they belong in a godzilla film. Besides, THEY KILLED OFF THE MAIN VILLAIN. And Umbrella corp's gone, so what's going to replace that?

There is one villian i know of if you played the Resi 5 DLC you will find there is one more Wesker left.

And i also want them to try going back to traditional survival not hive minded people or people with a bug inside acting as a reciever because that doesn't seem Resident Evilish to me anymore.

No Co-Op. Please No Co-Op... Sheva was annoying as hell...

all the racist talk in my opinion is all bullshit, I mean really, would a popular video game company really be deliberately racist?? And I am pretty sure that there are white zombies as well. And anyway, the game is set in Africa so there are bound to be more black zombies than white zombies! Sometimes people worry me...

Also, they shouldn't really be aiming to get the game out as soon as possible. I would prefer if they brought it out at a later date so it is a better game all round.

Nobody claimed White racism when the original 3 games were largely white zombies, I definitely agree. A huge double standard got slapped on this game.

Certainly looking forward to it! THe last couple installments have been great - But I do wonder where they are going to take it now...I mean Wesker is dead...

RE5 wasn't that bad, but I agree with most of the people in this thread - Capcom should go back to their more horror-driven roots with RE6. The "Survival-Horror" genre has been rather underrepresented on this generation of consoles.

This is exactly what I was thinking. The way I see it, there are only two possible routes they can take (without introducing a brand new villain): Tricell becomes the new "Umbrella" and the next game deals with taking them down. How this will work I don't know, as Excella was killed too.
The other option would, to me, be a better choice. If anyone recalls, late in RE5 you find a list of names that is apparently everyone who worked for Umbrella and knew all the top-secret stuff. Almost everyone on that list is dead, some after being tortured to make sure they didn't know anything. I think one person may be locked up in prison somewhere and is written off, but there was a female (I want to say her name started with a 'J') whose whereabouts are listed as "Unknown". She could be the next villain. If she had access to everything about Wesker and Umbrella, there's no telling what she can do.

Resident Evil 6?... uhmm... that sounds like cow milking to me.
Honestly, story wise (yes, there IS a story in the series, belive it or not), we've already killed a mayor villain in the series that, as portrayed in some ridiculously awesome cutscenes, seemed undefeatable at worst.

Umbrella is defunct, Tricell stopped it's operations, all the mayor scientists involved with the Progenitor proyect, the T-Virus, the G-Virus, the Plagas discovery and the Uroboros proyect are either horribly mutated and dead, or simply dead. And Wesker, THAT major villain I was talking about, is dead for good (I hope).

What can they come up now? cloned-african-spanish-alien-robot-dinosaur-nazi-zombies? (heh, I was playing a bit too much "Time Gentlemen, Please!", you should do yourself a favor and buy that game ASAP).

As much as I love the series, Capcom is running low on steam and I hope they come up with something awesome.

RE4 was what brought their game into the spotlight. Sure people liked the original, but RE4 was the heavy hitter in the franchise. I never played RE5 as I heard it was not nearly as good. Why would they go back to the old style?

So, CAPCOM is planning on putting out two Resident Evil games in a short time? I mean, they're already working on Resident Evil: Revelations for the 3DS, and I'm assuming that this will be a 360/PS3 version. I'm sure they could do it, but I'd rather wait a few years and get a good game instead of them rushing something out.

I enjoyed 5 a lot, but it's not a perfect game. The AI is hard to work with on Veteran and Professional difficulties (though it's more than tolerable on lower ones, and I've sometimes preferred it to human players). I wouldn't mind another co-op game, but I think lower ammo (such as Lost in Nightmares) and more tension about not knowing what will happen next is needed.

They also need to retire some of the characters. Chris and Jill are getting older, and they've done the job they set out to do by killing Wesker. I think Sheva is fine as new character, but they just did very little to make me truly sympathize with her. Sure, you can read her character profile and that explains more of her background and motivation for joining the BSAA, but if they had taken the time to even mention some of that in game, she would have been a lot more relate-able.

The Jakeinator:
No, fuck that.

Get back to work on Dead Rising 2. You ruined Resident Evil for me. Just shut up.

Someone's a bit mad, eh?

I can't wait to hear more on RE6.

A bit, delaying Dead Rising 2 twice, and stealing a lot from RE4, and making it hella lot shorter and...I just was mad I wasted my money.

Believe it or not, delaying a game can be a good thing.

Just look at Valve's track record.

Indeed, but I was a little peeved off because the whole, "Going back to School" thing.

As long as Wesker stays dead. I am sure he is, buuuut I dunno. But I would hate if all those Wesker fanatics get an "I told you so"
But some Capcom guy, not sure if it was Keiji himself said he was perma-dead.

Soooooo now they're just milking the series? Wesker's dead, series over man, give us a reboot, enough of Chris, Claire, Jill, Leon, and everyone else, gives us some new people

as soon as posiable
they should not rush games. no rushed game has ever been good (well exept freespace 2)

RE5 wasn't even a particularly bad game in my eyes
it just wasn't as good as RE4

I'll buy the new one even if they completely ruin it so long as the merchant from RE4 is in it

Yes... I look forward to fighting the safe, politically correct white male zombies.

Because even though 80% of the world isn't white and an additional half of that is female; "science" says that all zombies will always be white males. GG, guys.

I'm boycotting Capcom after RE5 for sheva - the most simpering PC move in gaming history. Anyone with me?

I turned in my RE fan badge after the shittiness that was RE5, so I totally don't care about any new releases in the series, unless they go back to the basics. What they need to do is have another Racoon City scenario with slow moving zombies again, but using the controls from RE4. That could be brilliant! But no, I'm sure they'll probably take it one step further with surfing asian zombies or some stupid shit.

I got the tagline for it already: Resident Evil 6: Now in Newfoundland! (cause nobody gives a shit if newfies are offended)

I only jumped into the series when the fourth one came out, which seems to be a universally good thing. That game covered many 'firsts' for me which made for a clumsy first play-through and even still it was amazing, I dare say the best game I've ever played. I liked the fifth one too, especially the co-op system, I hope they keep that. I don't really have many objections, overall it was a really great experience for me, and I look forward to the next one, especially since Leon seems to have a good chance of returning :B.

I don't really know. The first 3 are good. In my opinion Resi4 was meh. It was so repetitive that I quit playing around the end. It was that boring :-(

Mornelithe:
Screw RE6, I want to see another Onimusha damnit!

Thats a bit like wanting another limb cut off after having had both arms and a leg severed.

But on the subject, keep the re4 controls, alloy me to move while i'm aiming, lower the amount of ammo and healing items and for the love of god make it zombies.

And don't bring back wesker for the love of god.
