I wish i could bring myself to, but i'm afraid not. I looks like something i could actually really enjoy, but at the same time it all just looks so weird.

It's not good. It's okay if you're interested in all things RE, but as it's own game, it's nothing special.  
Also a fucking nightmare to play alone.

Yes, because I'm weak. I know it'll be just an arcadey shooter, but I have to.

Nope. Still looks like it plays too much like Socom Confrontation. That means weirdly loose movement and shooting.

Yeah but I'm dumb so don't act like me.
Unless you want to play it co-op with me.

I'm not particularly interested in the Resident Evil franchise, so no.

Also, there's a good chance this game is the last shot that Slant Six Games has. They were working on Star Wars: Battlefront Online prior to this, but it was cancelled. They made SOCOM: Confrontation, which got terrible reviews, though it might've sold alright in the first week or two. And they made 2 PSP SOCOM games, which can't have sold that well given that the only commercially successful PSP games were the ones that were huge hits in Japan.

Nope. Nothing about it looks especially interesting, I'm trying to save for the new iPad, and it isn't supposed to be all that good.

Rental if it has a online pass I'll pay that to play with people for a bit then send it back. The developer ruined the Socom series so I don't have much hope other then some quick novelty before the glaring issues arise.

Well, word is that the game is pretty shit.
I might get it if the eventual PC port is good.

I read the ign preview they said the game was bad. Even though I never had hope for this game to be successful. It might sell well sense its a online resident evil game.

Not next week, no. I'm not the biggest fan of RE, but that would seem to be an advantage with this game.

When it gets cheaper/a decent PC port comes out, I'll probably convince my friends to get it and play co-op for a week or so before shelving it. But honestly, that won't be until much, much later.

Unless it really is just total shit.

Have it preordered on, was incredibly excited for it until I came here and saw all the negative responses. Questioning whether to cancel it and order the DMC HD collection instead

how do you know?

Already have. Preordered and paid for a while back; £34, I'm willing to accept that. It's not going to be great (especially from a critic point of view), but I'm one of the loons who put like 245 hours into the original Outbreak game (and the UK version didn't even have online... yeah), so the general consensus I am not when it comes to a lot of things Resident Evil.

But I can already tell that it's not going to be a game I'd want to play solo, so...

Alright chums, less does this: OORAH!... Anyone? =(

Normally, I'd wait until it dropped in price, but at least three of my friends are getting it due to their Resident Evil nerdiness, and I might have to pick it up just because I'll have people to play it with. That said, if the reviews are terrible, I won't get it.

Yeah, need a new 4player co-op game, losing interest in ME3 rapidly.
