New footage has peaked my interest

  So new footage is out and as a long time RE fan (played all of them but the rail shooters) I think this game is looking to be better than I previously thought. It is of course not Resident Evil 6 but for what it is which they aren't hiding its looking good. I know most people haven't been so hot on and still won't be, but I hope this might turn the corner for you as it did me.  Also you can compare it too L4D all you want I would gladly play that game in the RE universe.

I think it can be a pretty cool spin off. Slant Slix, the developers, actually have done a decent job with shooters. Despite what reviews said Socom Confrontation was a good game, and a competent shooter.

I'm a resident evil fan too. But I don't know what to think of operation raccoon city. I guess well see how the game turnsout in the future.

This game is the only big name Capcom game that they've released/will release in a long, long time that I haven't been interested in. This interview makes me slightly less uninterested because I thought you were playing as Umbrella trying to kill Leon or some shit before. Still doesn't look all that hot though. Rather not have four-player co-op. Two was fine.

I was always confused about what this game is supposed to be. Is it primarily a L4D style co-op campaign game or is it a competitive shooter game with zombies in it? What's the main mechanic of the game they're pushing? I had zero interest in this game because I thought it was just going to be focused on competitive shooting, but a co-op campaign has me interest. But I'm still not convinced about the shooting gameplay. I only know Slant Six for Confrontation and I didn't enjoy that very much.

Is this the video that confirms ole Nemmy? Too lazy to sit through an ad and I may of already seen it...But yeah I'm actually surprised by how hastily my optimism rose from that one trailer alone; the amount of fanservice is fuckin' buldging out of the eye-balls at this point. Nemesis, William Birkin, Mr X, H.U.N.K and even the most generically evil-badass-Russian ever?! And maybe it is the fanboygasm that erupted within me, but even the shooting itself (which I had no qualms with on a design level, but it did look kinda shoddy during all of the gameplay vids) looks a lot better than I remember during that trailer when they gave the odd glimpse. Colour me excited for March 2012, at the very least.

EDIT: here's the trailer I was on about, btw.

I had no interest before. I am now way interested, thanks for posting this. (Especially since it seems there will be a PC release, yay!)

@xobballox: No problem. I think a lot of people didnt have an interest in it including myself. Just this video really turned me around on it and I can't wait to get my hands on it
