the whole game should be the last bit. The rest of the gameplay looks truly awful.

Also am I the only one who thinks those camera angles are nauseating?

Wow.... I loved RE4, I'm a huge RE5 apologist, but this..... this looks really bad.

Brad's camera work is making me sick...ugh

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.

I was totally sober and it was making me feel pretty icky, so my thoughts are with you in this time of trying.

That menu's amazing.

"Hey, we had an unbelievably good game with RE1. Codename Veronica was the last good Resident Evil game we've made, let's do something this time around to get back to it's roots, you know, make the series good again."

"Ok, I've got it....we make a cover based shooter with a less then stellar camera system, horrible and cheesy dialogue, and predictable gameplay. People loved GoW right? I mean, every other game out is a cover based shooter, so lets just do that"

"Perfect.......Perfect......"

Look I appreciate you enjoying the older RE games, but the simple fact is that RE4 is easily the most revered and critically-acclaimed game in the franchise. They aren't mimicking GoW, they are building on top of RE4. It just so happens that they've sort of forgotten why people liked that game so much.

Japanese game development folks.

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?

So they don't like the games, that's not whining.

Comes across as cynical and whiny to me. Then again, most GB videos seem that way to me nowadays. I miss the funny guys who were excited to play new games and would make fun of bad games.

I miss good games, I think the GB are fine, give them better games to play and they might be in a better mood, shocking.

From someone who enjoyed 5, I do NOT like the look of this! So if it's not for people who liked 5... and it's definately not for people who liked 4 (by the same measure)... who is it for?!

Edited by Hemmelight

Fucking screen tearing is baaaaad.

edit:

I just realized that the voice actor for Jake is the same as Kanji from Persona 4!

Neat.

Posted by L44

This game looks alright. I guess I'd jump on that train.

Edited by SaturdayNightSpecials

Also, I was interested in this game but it doesn't look good anymore.

I was hoping that in lieu of a good Resident Evil 4 type game, we could have a standard action TPS that happened to be set in the ridiculous RE universe, but they seem to have tried to do both and done a poor job either way.

Nope. The narrow FOV combined with the way the camera moves is really disorienting.

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.

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 A 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.

Your character does do a quick 180 spin when you flick the stick backwards and press A (on the Xbox) like in the previous games.

And I guess I'm in the minority here because I loved everything about this demo, especially how it plays. Though the framerate and the amount of screen tearing is kind of a bummer.

Edited by Yummylee

@EpicBenjamin: Seriously?... Man, how the Hell did I miss that. And I definitely tried the old way as well, but it never worked for some reason.

EDIT: Yup, you're definitely right. Though it doesn't lead into a sprint like Gears does and only turns the camera around, which is what I was expecting given the new control scheme.

I am not much of a Resident Evil fan but I can (sort of) see why people are. This just looks bad to me though.

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

That's true. Although to be fair to Capcom, they are getting so many disparate message from fans who want older controls, fans who like the action and newcomers who want better controls that it's understandable that they are confused. They have to decide which of these three groups is the most profitable and to be safe it seems they just threw everything in there.

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.

During that bossfight the camera was horrible. Mostly because you had to run near some edges and then run backwards to look at him following you and shoot the blue stuff.

At 24:35 I thought I saw the words "100 skill points" blink under the prompt when . Does anyone know what that was about?

It's the replacement for the gold you'd find in RE4/RE5. There'll be emblems to shoot as well as hidden treasures to find just like the previous games, too.

I could check up on it myself, but since it seems like you might know, is it for upgrading weapons as with the gold in previous games, or do you buff up the characters in some ways? Seeing as it's "skill" points.

That I don't know for sure. I'd assume they're used for upgrading/buying your stuff/abilities much like previous games, though since they are ''skill'' points, they might also possibly contribute to your overall score at the end of a chapter, but that's just speculation on my part.

This looks kind of bad.

@andmm: It could be worse! (I'm still going to get a second hand copy of course, but I still want to give it a chance!)

Posted by metalsnakezero

I still get kinda annoyed by the amount of times Jeff says he doesn't like RE4. The game was made to be about making careful shots and slow movements while also having fast reaction.

Anyway this is an example of a bad demo where it doesn't look finish and hasn't really been tested. I hope the final game is a lot more polish than this.

Oh the screen tearing is simply awful.

If resident evil 1 is Alien and Resident Evil 2 is Aliens, then Resident Evil 6 is Prometheus.

RE:4 was great!

Posted by depecheload

The camera is too close to the character. You can't see a damn thing.

Posted by captainanderson

The camera jank is disorienting and pretty terrible, but I think if Capcom works out those kinks the game will turn out great.

Edited by NTM

Again with the Juggalo's. Also, yes, you can with all of the characters (I think) roll on your back. I'm going to be the person here that says it, and I know it's his first time playing this, but is he really nervous, or does Brad just suck?

Posted by DeviTiffany

Honestly, I haven't been able to enjoy a Resident Evil game since REmake. RE4 and the rest of it's kind just isn't for me and this game really doesn't look like it's going to change that.

I actually really liked tank controls and a much slower paced atmospheric feel to the series than this over-the-top action feel it's going for now. I would say I'd just stick to Dead Space, which feels like a much better version of the RE4 formula, but now even Dead Space seems to be trying to do the same shit Resident Evil is doing in Dead Space 3.

Man, outside some indie titles like Amnesia it's a really shitty time for Survival Horror games.

Posted by Seraphim84

Say what you will about how this game plays, but it definitely looks fantastic.

Yeah what's with that? I kinda thought maybe it was their capture gear, but it's gotta be the game I guess. Pretty awful stuff indeed.

Posted by RIDEBIRD

What an exceptionally ugly game. Looks very boring as well.

Posted by Gringus

Is this a joke?

Posted by KuntThrasher

I can't tell if brad is just really bad at this game or if the game is just horrible to control.
