    I got more than my money's worth out of RE5 because of the coop, so I'm fine with RE6 sticking to that formula. They're probably never going to 'return to their roots' because IMO that sort of thing just doesn't hold much mass-market appeal today. There are still 'true' survival horror games being made on the indie front though, check out Lone Survivor.

    The PC version did most certainly did. There wasn't even official mouse support, you had to get a mod to do a half-assed job of emulating your mouse as an analog stick.

    Another 'fun' little tidbit was that every command displayed a number (1-9) instead of the key it was actually bound to. This means that during QTEs, you'd see retarded shit like:

    MASH 4!!!
    ALTERNATE BETWEEN 6 and 7!
    HIT 1!

    Where 4 might be R, 6 and 7 could be Space and Mouse2, and 1 may be Left Control.

    The PC port sucked, everyone knows that. It came out Long after the original game, and only modders even gave a crap about it. The console version, wich is THE proper version, had pretty good controls. QTEs where still kind fo annoying,

    The pc port was pretty good I thought. Some high rez texture mods exist and you could play through as Claire and a few other people with mods. Owning a gamepad for your PC is a good idea these days. Dead Space comes to mind; the pc ver. should have been called Desk Space, since you needed generous amounts of it.

    Weird thing is the port is of the PS2 version instead of the original Gamecube version which is why it has crappy pre-rendered cutscenes instead of the fancy ingame ones of the Gamecube that showed costume changes and such.
    Shame really as I played through it as HUNK.

    Like mobucks says the port is good if you get a controller, as the button prompts are just basic texture files there are a few mods that change them to controller input buttons instead.

    The creator, Shinji Mikami, was talking about how Resident Evil 6 looked more like an action movie rather than a horror title in a recent interview. I have to say I agree. They told us we could expect horror, but I haven't seen it in a RE title in awhile.

    *sigh* Isn't that the truth? :(
    It annoys me that some gamers nowadays never even heard of Resident Evil until they played 5. Thing is, 5 plays so much like an action game that knowledge of the ones before it and the story isn't really needed.. :|
    It's one of the best video game series ever made in my opinion.

    Good riddance. The one-two punch scored on RE with ORC and 6 will ensure this type of game never gets made again. Hopefully, if this series ever comes back, it will feature survival horror like the old games. Enough of this action shit honestly. Make a new IP and setting if that's what you want to do.

    IGN gave it a 7.9. That's pretty bad coming from them. I guess I will be waiting for the price to drop on this one. Shit. Now what am I going to buy?

    I think the general sentiment is that positive reviews from these sites don't mean much because they have low standards....but when you have a game that doesn't even meet those low standards...time to steer clear...

    Exactly. Even before the reviews came out I was cautious about this one. All the action bullshit has been turned up to 11. I'm also sick to death of QTE garbage. I want to watch the fucking cinemas, not wait for a button to pop up on the screen. I will still buy the game no doubt, but I'm pretty disappointed.

    Resident Evil 5 was a step backwards and it looks like 6 took another couple steps. No survival horror for Resident Evil anymore, let's turn it into Gears of War with zombies. Lets completely turn the fucking series into an action game with no horror involved aside from lots of blood. After watching an airliner crashing to the ground with one long long action set-piece after another, I can't say I'm surprised. Resident Evil 5 is guilty of the exact complaints the review at Gamespot mentioned, so it isn't a leap to say he is telling the truth. Sure IGN doesn't know shit, but Gamespot too? Those are the game sites that rate every AAA title pretty good no matter what, and they didn't so that means something. Even the demo had tons of negative responses. I'm sure the co-op shit will appeal to lots of people, but I really miss the horror aspect of the game. I hate Gears of War and now Resident Evil has become it's clone. I want my horror fix, I used to get it from RE and now I can't. I think I'm having withdraws. I mean, was Resident Evil 4 or 5 scary at all? Fuck no. Maybe tense because you don't want to get cut up by a chainsaw and whatnot, but not scary in the slightest bit. I will begrudgingly play this fucking game only because it is a main title in the series and I am a die-hard fan, but I dislike Capcom quite a bit now, not just because of this mind you, but lots of recent bullshit they have pulled. Whatever man. :twitch:

    Yes, but God Hand was very hard, graphically wasn't stunning and wasn't an AAA title. Games like those are rated poorly very often regardless of their quality. Resident Evil instead is the kind of important title that should get a 8.5+ by default by the mainstream gaming press, the fact that it doesn't is quite telling.

    I mean...

    Older reviews on Gamespot and IGN (as in, pre-200x) are pretty reliable, just checked the ones for Revenant, 101st Airborne in Normandy and a few others out.

    I am not saying the game is incredible, I am just saying I'll wait until my usual sources have a word on it, (mostly watching the game itself being played).

    If you ask me, neither were any of the previous games. This entire franchise is way too cheesy to be actually scary. I still think RE4 is the best game in the series and I greatly enjoyed 5, although they were pushing it with QTEs already in the latter. If 6 is going even further in that direction, I can definitely see it turning to unbearable shit.

    I never understood why people insist that the Resident Evil games were scary, they are tense, and very entertaining, but Scary? nope.
