Have any characters crossed paths before?

#1 Edited by Sackmanjones (4761 posts) -

I have always liked the resident evil and played the first one a ton but my mom cracked down on those games since I was too young to be playing them so never played much between 1 and 4. I played a little of 2 at a friends and know the main character is Leon and in the first is Chris. I know some characters like Leon and Claire have met but have Leon and Chris ever crossed paths before?

I don't think so. 
Chris mentions reading Leon's report in RE5

Do Chris and Leon meet in Code Veronica? I don't remember. I think they at least talk to each other don't they? Or was Leon even in that game? It's very foggy in my mind.

I'm sure Chris and Leon have met during the formation of the BSAA.  I doubt that they have any relationship outside of that.

Well did they at least talk in Code Veronica? Cause I seemingly remember something about them in Code Veronica. But I'm not entirely sure.

I do remember something about Claire mentioning Chris in the 2nd one but I dont think they ever find him

Clarie e-mails Leon about being trapped on the island and that's about it I think.

Claire thinks Chris is in raccoon city but later you find out Chris is in France investigating Umbrella

@trophyhunter:  Got it. I think it would be cool for them to maybe meet up in RE6. Or if they do co op again maybe they are both playable. But I'm thinking for sure Leon will be the main character in RE6

@CL60:  I can't remember if this was only in the Code Veronica novel or the game as well, but Claire talked about having some private forum set up, and that Leon and Chris kept in contact over it or something. Leon was definitely not actually in the game. At the very most he was briefly mentioned.

And you find a report about Chris and the rest of the S.T.A.R.S. division in the police station, as Claire. In RE2.

Chris and Leon have never met. Chris did reference him though in RE5.

That would be cool but Capcom already said RE6 will be a complete reboot.
So Leon might not actually exist any more.

The is no press release Shinji mikami just said it 
except he does not actually work capcom anymore.

It was Jun Takeuchi who says RE6 might be a reboot, Shinji Mikami has nothing to do with the series anymore. 

Jun Takeuchi also says he doesn't want to work on RE6.

I just want RE to go back to survival horror.

@CL60: do you want it to use the same third person view though or some kind of slightly fixed view?

I think a similar third person camera could work.

What would you think about  an RE game that is like shattered memories? 
where you play as a normal guy just trying to stay alive in raccoon city..
#23 Posted by Sackmanjones (4761 posts) -
@CL60:  Ya I think so too. What I want though is that feeling of stress like I had when I played Dead Space. Never enough health never enough ammo and never enough information. I loved that about it. Not to say I didn't like RE4 or 5 I liked them a lot actually

I think bringing in a new character would be alright. I'm getting kind of bored playing as Chris, Leon, and Claire.

@trophyhunter: That's never been Resident Evil.  Claire and Rebecca are the least trained characters in the RE franchise, and they're still capable of mowing down zombies.  Resident Evil has always been about action, combat, and crazy monsters.  Shattered Memories works with Silent Hill because Silent Hill has always been about atmosphere.
 
Resident Evil is headshotting zombies with shotguns, Silent Hill is beating nurses to death with a wooden plank with a nail in it.
 
Personally, I don't necessarily know where there is for Resident Evil to go within its current fiction.  With Wesker finally dead, the last vestige of Umbrella is no more... they can cover further incidents where the BSAA has to stop bioterrorism, but without Umbrella, what is there?  Resident Evil without Umbrella is like F.E.A.R. without Alma or Silent Hill without the town.

@CL60:  I think Chris can be done now since he basically brought down umbrella. But Leon's story could go on just cause Ada got away with the virus

I'm pretty sure Claire emailed Leon or something saying they need help, and Leon contacted Chris. 
I'm almost 100% sure they have at least talked, even if it's not shown in the games.
