I didn't like the demo, it's more like an pure action game now.. however I have never missed one so I am going to give it a try.

Hopefully they are able to contain how much "suck" leaked out from the demo when this gets released.

If this goes onto torrent sites, i hope it will serve a lesson that PC piracy is not the only problem.

@theinternat: Nice try ;)

Posted by Timnoldzim

What an embarrassment. Even completely ignoring the debate regarding the game itself, a big-name publisher like Capcom should be more together than this.

i've played every RE game since 2 on launch day, and i've never been more excited for an RE game in my whole life. i really like the cinematic style they're going for.

i've played the demo, and the gameplay wasn't without flaws, but it wasn't so bad the series is going to TANK and DIE like some drama queens on here seem to think. the controls were definitely smoother than RE4 and 5. when do demos ever really give a game justice anyway? i've read the reviews on people who played the game for 7 hours, and there was definitely a lot more positive feedback then from people who played the 15 min ones.

I absolutely adore the resident evil characters, and universe - as zany and plot hole-y as it is. i'm really excited to see what happens in RE6, so i can forgive some imperfections. i know i'm going to love it.

@billyhoush: You mean this right?

Man, I really liked RE5.... but not too stoker on this game...

Edited by dvorak

Virtually every game is leaked a few days early, I don't really see what the big deal is. I mean I got the first Mass Effect at a K-Mart 3 weeks ahead of retail completely legitimately. A lot of people did, actually.

Also, "It’s not just that Resident Evil 6 shows up on torrent sites, it's that Resident Evil 6 shows up on torrent sites, people don’t care for the game, and pre-orders disappear."

I'm all for off-the-cuff stream of consciousness fun time journalism, but that's two, maybe three sentences.

I really enjoyed RE5 so this should be good.

So is Re6 really that bad? I loved every single Resident Evil game religiously and cannot fathom the thought I will not get any enjoyment out of a core RE title. I even had some fun with Dead Aim and that game was a horrible stinker. Did not try Operation Racoon City, though.

And what about the rampant hate for RE5? I played it twice in coop with very good friends over teamspeak and it was an extremely excellent cooperative experience and loads of fun.

My understanding is that RE5 has great co-op but in singleplayer it's nigh-on unplayable. I can attest to it from my playthrough, the team AI is outright broken. Plus RE5 definitely had a worse inventory system than 4. I think that's basically it though, it's a co-op focused game in a predominantly single-player series, that in focusing on co-op made the single-player worse.

Think Lost Planet 2 against Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. Then pretend you were a massive fan of Extreme Condition so when LP2 comes along it's like... dude. The fuck is this shit. Even though it's a very nice co-op semi-Monster Hunter in space. It's not a good Lost Planet game by fans' metrics.

I think Resident Evil 6 is just continuing that kind of distillation of what fans remembered and liked about 4. Plus, a lot of people grew up with Resident Evil in an age where it was considered survival-horror, and since these games are blatantly action games by today's standards, they complain. Even though, rose-tinted glasses off, the original Resident Evil games aren't horror games at all. I don't know, I think it's just not what "core" fans want from Resident Evil as a series. Same as why any sequel to popular games will no doubt face some kind of backlash - nothing will ever live up to the originals in the jaded eyes of their a lot of their core audience. Simple.

As a great fun of Resident Evil series i hope this part will be little bit better than part 5 and specially than part 4 who was in my opinion the worst of all.

@mdnthrvst: What ''baseless virtriol'' are you talking about? Are people not allowed to form any kind of impression from what they've seen or even played? That's the entire point of promotional material, to make you excited for the game! Or backfire and push away sales. Which is exactly what RE6 is doing. And I haven't really seen a lot of outright hate for RE6, mostly just apathy really.

Also lol @ ''Six hundred talented people don't put out a COMPLETE piece of shit. It's simply impossible.''

Here would be my counter example to the "lots of people can't make something shitty" argument.

The IMDB cast and crew list of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen--a movie made, presumably, by lots and lots of adults that is pretty much a piece of loud, obnoxious shit.

@Brodehouse: Isn't there like no gameplay in the Leon part of the demo? While I agree demos should reflect the game to decent degree, I find most of the atrocious and not fun, even for games I like a lot.

Posted by benefitevil

In this day and age is this even possible to stop? I don't think there has not been a major game that has not been leaked in some form or another. I wonder if anyone has charted or studied the repercussions of games getting leaked.

That demo was a real big bummer. I was already planning on enjoying Resident Evil 6 while grumpy old fucks complained about it (just like how it happened with RE4, just like how it happened with RE5)... And then that demo. I don't give a fuck about 'too much action' or 'not scary enough', I rate games on how fun they are above all. But RE6 just is not fun. You can say RE5 ain't scary, but it's at least fun.

You got an early copy? What's the ending like?

Like I said 9 minutes ago, I have this weird hope that they rejiggered the entire core gameplay to something fun. But the RESIDENT EVIL 6 DEMO I have isn't very fun.

If a person can't make a quality judgement based on a demo, then what's the point of demos whatsoever? I played an hour of that demo, how long would you feel is enough, the entire game?

@Yummylee: Oh, I think Downpour is a pretty middling experience all around, but there's a difference between middling and awful. That game has its problems (monster variety, subpar puzzles, the ending) and its merits (very well performed, some good sidequests, weapon system), but I judge it on its own merits, not how much it conforms to whatever my ideals about Silent Hill are.

People are already talking shit about that Vita one, because (once again) it's not Silent Hill 2 so how dare they? I'll judge it on its merits. People were talking shit about RE6 as soon as they possibly could. I didn't form an opinion until I played that demo. And my problem isn't this isn't RE4! It's that this game isn't any kind of fun.

I still have this weird, fading hope that they saw the reaction and went into some crazy crunch to get it to something approaching fun. I'll probably wind up disappointed.

Posted by AiurFlux

I hated RE5, odds are I'll hate this. And I have a good enough idea to know from the demo and my personal tastes that I'll probably hate this. I'd honestly rather play Nemesis, or RE2, or REmake over anything that has been put out from this series in recent years. Plus truth be told I don't like Capcom as a company and they have some incredibly shitty business practices that need to change before I buy another one of their games.

In short, I have some fucks but none of them to give to their "plight". Capcom can go fuck themselves either way.

Posted by LarcenousLaugh

Honestly, with the ton of gameplay videos already available, I'm wondering what's left to spoil. I was never a huge fan of the series (my favorite time spent with it was actually watching my brother work through RE1 and 2), but what I have seen so far hasn't gotten me anymore excited to try it. Would be happy to be proven wrong with a good release/surprising reviews, but I have a feeling we all know what we are getting with this one.

Posted by DrStrangepork

So some people get to be disappointed a month early?

Posted by SortedeVaras

Damn Germans, why couldn't you steal 360 versions so I would care?

Posted by Yummylee

@Brodehouse: ...Waaaaaait, didn't I see you post that you also didn't like Downpour too much? It was some list about which Silent Hill and Resident Evil games you think are crappy or something. It stuck with me because, well, I was under the impression that you did, at least initially, like Downpour.

Or I'm remembering wrong. It was from a fairly old thread I think.

Posted by Brodehouse
@Yummylee Well that wasn't about you. More the entire culture of Stop Having Fun Guys that permeates this entire medium. Think about Patrick's attitude towards Downpour, holding a bitter grudge that they didn't just make Silent Hill 2 (a game that I'm increasingly unsure of whether or not he's actually played). I'm not a big fan of unreasonable negativity, and that's seemingly the majority of this medium.
Posted by tourgen

well that's a bummer I guess. I'll still check the game out. The demo was alright and the trailers seemed to show it well.

@msavo: I never understood this "i hope it fails" mentality. Why does it matter? Oh great it validates your own personal opinion on the matter, hoo (fuckin) ray, but it's a small personal victory that means absolutely nothing.

Let's say it tanks. Now what? Are they suddenly going to use your ideas on how to make the next RE game?

What are the negative effects of the game tanking? Nevermind how it relates to just you and only you, but I'm guessing that you're assuming it's failure will result in something in the future that you like when in reality (or based on history) that's very unlikely. The result could them going back to the drawing board and doing something you find way worse than RE6.

It's worth the risk in my opinion. I don't need other people to share my view on the matter that's why I , the keyword being " I ", hope it fails so it shows that Capcom needs to take a Resident Evil break or make some drastic changes. Could those changes make the series worse? Of course but at least changes are being made to the formula.

Even though I consider myself a fan of the series, I'm not buying Resident Evil 6 until it is stupid cheap. Everything about that game past the announcement trailer has been nothing but disappointment.

You know, it's a damn shame that we can't have nice things anymore. Game getting leaked out and such.

But let's face it here: Resident Evil stopped being "Survival Horror" after either Nemesis or Code Veronica(You choose).

Posted by mdnthrvst

@Yummylee: Great counterexample you got there. I stand by what I said - 600 talented professionals don't make garbage. Never have. The Old Republic wasn't great, but it was well-made, which this game will be.

If anything, the actual developers of RE6 are probably despairing over the AWFUL fucking marketing campaign for this game. The people responsible for crafting RE6 are NOT the same people responsible for showing it off, and the latter group is probably filled with misguided, incompetent functionaries.

I've never even played a Resident Evil game in my life, but I see this time and again - PR for games is a sham, and can as often make garbage look great (see Steel Batallion) as it can make something okay look like shit (the likely truth of RE6). And still, gamers flay the bad marketing and conflate it with a bad game.

Posted by alternate

They were sold in regular stores - so were they really stolen or were just shipped really early and street date got broken.

As for pirate copies. They are PS3 so the impact is not going to be massive even if they do get out.

@Yummylee: A demo is still just a demo. Perhaps the story (Hah!) or the combat mechanics make better sense in context, or can be adjusted to a better-feeling configuration.

Six hundred talented people don't put out a COMPLETE piece of shit. It's simply impossible. Even if the game's middling, which is as bad as it probably can be, 'middling' isn't the tone of this baseless vitriol whatsoever.

What the hell is up with people pronouncing a game hot garbage before they even have their hands on it?

Happened with Hitman: Absolution and it's happening with this. There's no basis for it whatsoever, because you quite simply don't know what you're talking about. Wait for reviews.

Oh, c'mon. Those are two completely different situations. Hitman: Absolution blew up with a load of hate because of some questionable interviews and statements, like ''we want to make the game more linear'', but once gameplay footage started being released everybody was simmering down and currently a lot of people are now very optimistic towards Absolution.

RE6 is the complete opposite. It drawn in everyone with that awesome announcement trailer, and then the playable demo was released... And then aaaaaaall of those gameplay trailers were released. People have played or have at the very least seen a lot of RE6 footage. More than enough to at least spring to some sort of impression on the game. Which looks pretty bad. The gameplay is, simply put, not especially good.

Ah I think Resi6 will be fine, I didn't hate 5 quite enjoyed it a lot and although I still much prefer old-school slow paced survival horror resident evil the series just maintains a sense of absolute stupidity and absurdity that remains compelling regardless of how they decide to design its pacing/mechanics.
