@hassun: Saying it's a "Ring to prevent soul memory gain" understates what it actually does. If I'm reading the official notes properly, you do not gain any souls that would result from killing another player during online play, which means you aren't gaining anything other than the items that may result from the kill. You could gain as many items as you'd like while using this ring, but you won't gain any souls that would allow you to level up or upgrade your equipment. It seems like it's their way of allowing people to continue matchmaking with a particular group or level of people without advancing your own rank, which could lead to both bad and good situations where a player that sped through the game and got some of the best equipment could cause some serious grief for new players or players that don't participate in much PVP, or give some pretty serious help to people who might be struggling.

Only time will tell on this ring, but it seems like a cool idea for now. There will be people on both sides of the help/grief fence, I'm sure.

That's pretty cool! Not really sure what it's about, but it's pretty cool nonetheless.

This poll should really have a "Yes, in both positive and negative ways."

Though I can't remember names, I can recall that my opinion has been turned both positively and negatively due to the endings in certain movies.

@linkster7: Perhaps you just don't have the same nostalgia for the game, or simply didn't enjoy it as much as some people? Personally, I'm extremely excited for this. The first Resident Evil is one of my all-time favorite games, so I could not be happier that they're giving it a complete overhaul to bring it to the current generation of gamers & consoles.

I enjoy a game called Pixel Dungeon. It's a pretty difficult Rogue-like with different base classes and they update fairly consistently with new content & bug fixes.

This is a great read. I had no idea that this game was willing to grapple with these kinds of issues in such a realistic way.

First PS2 game I bought because it was cheaper than everything else on the shelf, Eternal Ring. Really enjoyed that game.

This for sure. I remember thinking it was a pretty good game, although I felt that they ever fully explained how the ring creation really worked.

I'm having the same issue, but it only happens sometimes. I notice that it seems to update for a couple of hours, but eventually stops updating when I refresh the home page.

I wouldn't mind a code. I'm interested, but I'm not sure if I'm interested enough to buy yet.
