@MiniPato: Brad said he was one of two people in the office who liked RE5. Jeff was clearly saying he didn't like RE at all. That's a complete counter to your argument.

And thank you for the From Dusk til Dawn quoteish, Jeff.

I'm with Brad in that I enjoyed 5. But something about the movement in this game looks off. I'll have to give the demo a try myself, but right now my enthusiasm for RE 6 is pretty low.

This looks like a mess I wish they got rid of the co op all together camera looks awful and the hud is weird crosshairs seems odd too.

I don't know, this looks like everything I don't want out of a Resident Evil. If this is just another hallway simulator, I'm not interested.

Too many franchises are throwing out the adventure qualities that made them great.

Edited by ILikePopCans

Yeah, I don't know. This quick look has left me confused about the game. That boss fight looked like the fucking worst, and the combat was a whole bunch of bad melee in the Chris part. And the only thing I was thinking about during the last part was where have I heard that voice actor before voicing that female in the Leon's part. Turns out she was the awesome vampire sidekick Serana in Dawnguard.

I would go mad playing co-op with Brad

Oh man, I miss Arctic Sun! The best Faygo. They need to bring it back.

Posted by Seroth

This looks nothing like RE4 or RE5, at least with the way Brad was playing this. I'll just have to wait and play the demo myself... I also need to finish Revelations, which also didn't really play like RE4 or 5, nor like this melee-a-thon that Brad was playing.

The camera is making me sick!

That wesker thing was an exact copy of last boss of Uncharted 2. Same shit, same thing of not knowing if you actually damage him with bullets, same shitty camera, same shitty shit. Really a good choice for a boss fight, making it the worst thing in Uncharted 2.

Umm... what? No.

Posted by 20183242

The cutscenes look terrible! Is this always the way that the RE franchise has looked, or did Capcom do something different with this?

...to be honest though, I haven't really enjoyed a resident evil game since RE2, so maybe I'm not the best judge of this game's quality.

Posted by ashogo

The Leon stuff looked pretty cool.

I've always not understood the appeal of Resident Evil but this doesn't seem proficient.

Revelations plays a lot like RE4+5 if you use the Circle Pad Pro.

I can't get over that camera. I can see myself get really frustrated with it. Not entirely sure if it's just a far too narrow FOV or just how it swings around or both. Things look just far more constrained then they really are or at least should be.

As much as I feel meh about this game, the bombcrew has no idea how to play it or use any of the interesting gameplay mechanics.

Moral of the story : Don't bother judging the game/demo based solely off a video of someone who doesn't know how to play the game. Especially if it's brad.

Agree that we shouldn't judge the game based solely on this video but can you reasonably say that they have no idea how to play it? The way it's being played here seems entirely appropriate to this genre of game. It's not like they were trying to play it as a flight simulator or something.

Also I'm not sure if singling out Brad was sarcastic but surely he is the most qualified person to play this game, having openly declared his love for 4 and 5?

This does not look good and that is really disappointing.

Ehm, why this hate for Resident Evil 1,2 &3 all of a sudden? To say that the fourth is way better is to not recognize that those are different games.

I love 1-3, and I love 4, but not for the same reasons! The intense survival horror is exchanged for more actiony elements, which works very well in their way.

I liked the 5th one as well but I don't think I would like this game, with that said, it feels like a bad fit to let the two people who hate resident evil the most of the staff to quick look this. Maybe Patrick would have been a better fit? I mean, it is always boring to listen to ranting and hating, whatever game they are quick looking! It just makes for a worse viewing experience!

Can people just get over the fact that not everyone is going to have the same opinion of you. So what if they dislike RE 1-3? That's there opinion and giant bomb shouldn't be obliged to have to cater to fans just so they don't get butthurt when people don't see there favorite games the same way you do. And Brad has stated that RE4 is one of his favorite games of all time so if that's not a prerequisite to meet your RE6 quick look needs then I don't know what to tell you.

I'm glad this game is shit, it shows that they shouldn't have listened to everyone complaining about not being able to walk and shoot. FU guys.

Dead Space 1 did it fine. It's not the walking and shooting that's the problem. If Capcom can't design enemies that counter your added movement abilities, they're the ones that have an issue.

Well, your point is just weird since that was not my point at all. I did not say that there is any prerequisite of liking the previous ones (1-3, did not mention 4 in this regard), especially since they are different games.

So wouldn't it be better of them to say that they are different games and be a bit more informative than just.. whiny?

Iit is like they don't even realize themselves that there are people who might like games that they don't like?

To be an elitist regarding games doesn't make for a nice viewing experience.

POINT: Whiny QL:s are boring.

And just on a personal note, I would love if everyone hated all games I like. I like to have things for myself :D

I'd heard the 180 quick-turn got taken out. Is that so? Because it looks like it would come in *super* handy in Jake's sequence, when you've gotta kite the boss near the exploding barrels.

Posted by BabyChooChoo

I'm still not interested in Resident Evil. Confirmed.

Posted by metalliccookies

Didn't like Re5 and after seen this I don't think i'll like Re6.. If i know someone who get this i'll try it but i'm not buying it :( (I miss classic Re)

Yeah, from what I've played I couldn't find any way to do a quick 180 unfortunately, and I agree, Ustanak (boss in Jake's mission) is one such battle where it would come in handy. You can do a dive by pressing A (default 360 controls) while you're aiming, which doesn't make for the most elegant solution, but it's there to help you dive outta the way while he's bull rushing you. Though what's ironic is that even the Gears games can let you do a swift 180.

Holding down RT is also how you stay in prone and shimmy out of the way which... hasn't exactly proven to be all too useful for anything, but maybe in the full game it'll serve a purpose besides to generally look cool.

I think the demo is terrible, but they're awful about ignoring tutorials or instructions. They talk through the load screens that show the buttons. It literally shows you the controls for the dodge move. "Is there a way to dodge? I guess not."

They do this for literally every game. They ignore instructions because they're too busy "trying to show the game" and all it does is make it look like the game is broken.

So much tearing, wow...

I loved RE5, so this is really exciting to me!

Edited by Phatmac

The resounding hate for this game is annoying me. I'm not even a fan of most RE games. I still hope it surprises people and makes them as well as some game journalists wait for the full game in order to continually bash it. Jesus, this is getting out of control during this quick look and from the comments section. At least someone has to defend it at a base level.

Edited by shodan2020

The Brad moment at 28:35 is pretty great. Game looks interesting. 5 was great because I had a co-op friend for the majority of the time. This looks interesting. That tearing should get fixed though. :)

@Liquidus said:

@Yummylee:Haha, yeah, I'm also a sucker for the ridiculously stupid RE fiction. There's something about that's just really...........fascinasting??? But I don't know about this game as much as love the story they seem to be setting up and bringing around some loose ends the series had after RE4/5 (especially with Ada), I know I'd just be slogging through the gameplay to get to the story beats which who's to say if they're even gonna be all that great.

Ada is pretty much the sole weave left unravelled since Wesker's dead and all, so I'd like to think that after this, the current canon of RE games will finally finish. I mean they've finally got Chris & Leon in the same game(!!), and that alone would lead me to assume that it's all going to tie up here. Probably won't be quite as extravagant as MGS4, but unless we have like Carlos, Barry, Rebecca and Billy opening up their own B.O.W. Bustin' agency after this, I think the well will be lookin' a little dry.

With that said, I imagine it wouldn't be too hard for capcom to contrive their way into carrying things on even further, especially if something like a MGS5 starring Snake can actually be in the works.

EDIT: Oh, when I say ''finish'' i mean the fiction and they instead reboot the whole thing. Naturally there's going to be many more RE games, given how even shite like Operation Raccoon City can manage to snag +2mill sales...

Posted by Excast

Resident Evil 4 was amazing.  This just looks like a continuation of the generic action game from RE5.  because, you know, there weren't enough of those in the world already so one of the only decent survival horror franchises had to transform.

Posted by RobertOrri

This is going to satisfy neither fans nor newcomers. I feel like Capcom are very confused about what makes Resident Evil work.

Posted by Church069

Watching this video really bummed me out. I'll reserve my judgement though, because who knows maybe this game turns out to be awesome when it comes out.

Honestly the real lesson here I feel is to not pre-order anymore games. Wait for the reviews.

Edited by JamesJeux007

Only the very end of this QL looked like something I would actually want to play... Then again, remember the E3 demo. That was not good. Not good at all.

The worst thing is, I know I'm probably gonna end up playing it anyway (it's like CoD, you can't miss it even if you want to) but I'm not looking forward to it.

Posted by VirtuaSamus

Resident Evil 6: Escape from Janksville. Technical and camera issues aside, it seems to be devoid of the atmosphere of previous games, afflicted with an annoying 'catch-all' design that detracts from what the franchise is supposed to deliver. The Shinji Mikami/GameCube years have yet to be touched in my humble opinion...

It's not Brad. The camera moves too fast, gets pushed forward by environmental objects, and has a sickening amount of motion blur. It's disorienting and vaguely nauseating. They need to do something about it.

I may have been somewhat hungover while trying to watch this, which definitely wasn't helping.

Year of the BIG B.O.W.!!

Posted by bloodsoul5

I guess i'm odd man out. Pretty much liked everything in this demo. Looking forward to release.

Edited by vanfarley

1. Spend over a half hour shitting on the game and saying how you don't want to play it anymore

2. Say in the last minute that you will reserve judgment till the game comes out

Two step process to make me regret how I spent the last 35 minutes, at least Jeff and Brad had some interesting things to say about the Secret World QL instead of just whining about how it's not the kind of game they wanted to play right now

Edited by Brad3000

I HATE the little door icon that tells you where you need to go. I am so sick of every game having an arrow constantly pointing me in the direction of the next goal. What happened to figuring things out for yourself? That used to be part of the gameplay. If there is a consistently obvious path, with a giant beacon guiding your way the whole time, you might as well just be walking in a straight line ala FFXIII.

LoL Brad sucking it up in this demo. Sorry, bud. I'm sure I'm in the minority, but I still like the RE series. It evolves like most games do. I liked RE5 but I think 4 is still my favorite.
