RE6 is also available as a digital download on PSN as of yesterday. Note that it's still full price at $59.99.

I have 90 people on my friends list and I've yet to see anyone playing this game.  I've been waiting until someone gets into it to ask their thoughts...and...yep.

I have it. Only played chapter 1 of Leon's and I'm honestly not sure yet. Safe bet would be to say if you like RE5 you will like this.

A guy from work has been out of work playing it with his friend out of state.  I'm gonna get his review when he comes back tomorrow, although I already picked it up, doing the Best Buy preorder giving $20 credit for future purchase and price matching Fry's Electronics $49.99 price.

Finished Leon's campaign, overall i'd say it's pretty good. Could do without all the button-mashing and half the quick time events are done pretty much for the sake of it, but for the most part it's enjoyable. It's no RE4 but i'd probably put it over 5 as far as Resident Evil games go.

Starting as Chris right after Leon already feels like a huge step down though, if you're going to make an action-orientated shooter it would be nice to actually have ammo from time to time. The cover system feels awkward to me as well, never needed it as Leon but as Chris it seems like it'll be a necessity.

I also started with Leon's campaign. Just finished the 2 hour long first chapter. The atmosphere is pretty good. I wish there was more to it then just shooting down hordes of zombies like every other zombie game, but it's still enjoyable. Found myself running out of ammo, and dying a lot. The subway section was pretty cool. No regrets buying this so far. It could be better, but it's not bad.

Leading up to this, I went back and re-played the only main storyline Resident Evil game I never revisited - Code Veronica. Probably the most boring one of the series. So much backtracking, and Steve and Alfred are pretty lame.

I have major Nostalgia Goggles when it comes to Code Veronica. I remember being blown away by the fact that the camera wasn't stationary. Definitely agree on the backtracking though.

Played the 6 demo yesterday. You all are right in that its a complete mess.

I broke down and bought it on the PSN over the weekend. Figured the wife and kid are out of town for 2 weeks, so it's the best chance of playing the game with the volume turned up. I bought it on the PSN over retail since you don't pay tax on the PSN, so it saved me over $10 on taxes.

As for the game, I started with Jake's campaign and enjoyed it a lot more than RE5. It's a lot more enjoyable now that the AI partner can't be killed in combat. I could live without all of the QTE and there are a few too many enemies at times.

I didn't play this as much as I thought I would over the weekend. I started Jake's campaign, and thought it was decent enough. But then I hit the snowstorm level and couldn't see shit or find where the fuck I needed to go and I got tired of it quickly. Returned it to Red Box, I'll wait for a good price drop before buying this one.

The snow storm level was annoying as hell. It looked fantastic, but it would have been impossible if not for the mini-map and the Smart Phone/direction finder thingy.

Finished Leon's campaign. I've been playing this at a slow pace, but it was good. Had a hard time with the last boss. Must have been trying to beat it for an hour. Definitely the hardest boss in Resident Evil history. Or maybe I'm just terrible at this game.

Not in a rush to beat the other campaigns but I guess I'll try Chris' story next. The cover system was pretty bad in the demo so I'm not really looking forward to this one.

I'm not sure what happened as far as the plot goes, but I enjoyed Chris' campaign. Not the most polished shooter (and definitely not survival-horror) but it was fun. The new camera patch helps it a lot, I feel.

Joystiq: Look out, it's a hungry horde of Resident Evil games infecting Day 3 of Xbox Live's Games on Demand sale, with five of the nibblers dangerously discounted. Shuffling along at half-price are Residents Evils 4-6 and Operation Raccoon City, taking 4 and 5 to to $9.99 and the other two to $19.99. Savings-wise, the pick of the bunch is Code Veronica, with today's discount digesting 75 percent of its insides and only leaving behind a stump of $4.99.

As ever - well, until March 4 - there's a groaning mass of other Games on Demand at sale-severed prices, and one of those groaners is Grid. With the second Grid game nearing the finish line, $4.99 is a decent price at which to dive into Codemasters' racer series.

Quote from: Joystiq
This spring, Left 4 Dead 2 characters, including the survivors and the Witch and Mini Tank infected, will make their way into Resident Evil 6's The Mercenaries No Mercy mode, while enemies from RE6 (Lepotitsa, Napad, and Ogroman) will appear in Left 4 Dead 2. Both crossovers occur in the PC version only.

RE6 owners will get to play the new content in that game starting April 5, while the L4D2 update will arrive in a more Valve Time-compliant "spring" release window. Both crossovers will be free to download for owners of either game.

Resident Evil Revelations is coming to consoles next week. I was looking forward to this because I remember having fun with it for a few minutes on my friends 3DS. I got a better feel for it today after downloading the PS3 demo. Probably not picking it up next week, but it's an eventual buy. This actually feels like a survival horror game. Sure it looks dated, but it captures the creepy suspense that was missing in 5 and 6. The Genesis scanner got old quick though. Not looking forward to whipping that out every few minutes to look for something.

I actually finished the final campaign in RE6 today and I've had the game since it was released. Just forced myself to complete it, really.

Revelations has the RE4 feel that a lot of people miss, so I'm for it as long as I'm not paying full price.

This series has gone so far off the deep end I'd almost be willing to settle for an updated graphics paint job on the original RE, bad voice acting and all, just to have a good RE game to play.

This series has gone so far off the deep end I'd almost be willing to settle for an updated graphics paint job on the original RE, bad voice acting and all, just to have a good RE game to play.
Did ya never play the Gamecube version?  It was a total remake of the first game, updating everything for the next-gen console, and adding a ton of new content. 

I'm kinda over the RE series too.  While I loved 4, it never felt like a proper survival-horror game.  Felt like it had more in common with Metal Gear than Resident Evil. 

And fuck part 5 right in its stupid ass.  The very first time I played that game, I got slaughtered in the very first fight.  I'm shooting down ENDLESS hordes of zombies in an unfairly massive rush of enemies for so early in the game, quickly running out of ammo, frequently resorting to the knife, and worst of all my partner's AI is so goddamn dumb that they never help me at all yet I'm having to come save them like every five seconds.  And then some big dude with an axe completely no-sells the dozen bullets I'm firing into him and casually walks up and kills me in one hit.  FUCK YOU, GAME.  Ejected the disk in disgust and took it right the hell back.  Hearing that part 6 was more of the same, I never even tried it. 

And oh yeah, Code Veronica discussion: that one still might be my second-favorite of the entire series.  Yeah, Alfred was kind of a lame villain, but Wesker and Veronica more than made up for that with their bringing of the badassery.  It fixed a bunch of problems with the game engine, provided a bunch of neat new environments, and even had some non-linear sandbox parts where you could choose to do stuff in different orders.  It even gave you the perfect amount of ammo, just enough to kill every monster in the game but not so much that you could go around wasting it recklessly.  Plus: this time, the inevitable whiny child sidekick dies horribly in total fucking agony.  Do want. 

Hey, here's a question: did any sequel ever bring back those weird alien-monkey monsters from near the end of the first game?  You know, in that one boiler room in the secret lab, they're running around on the ceiling.  Those things were creepy as fuck, I wonder why they didn't keep reusing them.

Yeah it's too bad 5 and 6 (especially 6) led to a lot of the older RE fans to give up on the series, because I think some of those fans would appreciate Revelations. Take the creepy music and enemies popping out of corners from the old PS1 games, and give it the RE4 gameplay treatment. But unlike 4, you'll want to move at a careful and slow pace, and you'll get backed into corners and shoot aimlessly at monsters while trying to look for an out. It's a nice mix of nostalgia. But because of the dated feel, this is aimed at the hardcore RE fans, and a lot of them have already moved on.

I'm not sure how RE4 felt like Metal Gear though. And that first huge horde in RE5 is definitely intimidating. You're encouraged to run around the entire field until the aerial strike comes, instead of trying to kill everything. But it would have helped if it was possible to run and gun, instead of run to the other side, stop, shoot, run to the other side, repeat.

Code Veronica is my second least favorite. I was jonesing to replay it due to old fond memories, and when I finally did, it was a chore to finish. There were certainly good things about it, but the back tracking was just TOO much. I've also replayed 1-3, and those still hold up to me.

Regarding the last batch of enemies from RE1, are you referring to the chimera?

Apparently, they were only brought back for the Wii rail shooter game. That's a shame, because you're right - they were pretty creepy.

I just mean that it was more like an action game with an over-the-shoulder perspective, and I don't play many of those besides Metal Gear so I don't have many other comparisons.

Aerial strike?!?  Ya know, it would be nice if the game TOLD me that was gonna happen and that I didn't HAVE to kill all those guys I assumed I had to kill.

Yeah, there's a ton of backtracking, but I didn't think it was any worse in CV than in the other RE games which frequently force you to do the same thing.

Yes, those guys.  I don't understand why they never made more use of them, they were the scariest enemy in the whole first game.

I don't know man. After having recently played all of them again, I think it's pretty safe to say Code Veronica has the most backtracking in any of the games by a wide margin. Backtracking seemed to be a staple in 1 and 2, but this was a little too much.

Regarding that first horde in RE5 - you have to survive for about two minutes before you're told you're going to get help via helicopter *soon*. Once you're told, that's when the huge guy with the axe comes and destroys the gate, which gives you the freedom to run away. But it isn't glaringly obvious at first because most people are too afraid to leave the cabin to even see what's going on outside. It was a little too much for such an early part of the game and wasn't set up well. As a whole though, I really liked 5 as an action game. Lots of replay value.

If I had to rank them from best to worst, it'd be 4,2,1,5,3,CV,6.

Yeah, if anything I'd say that was the biggest problem with RE5. It's playable, but the whole thing just feels like they were trying to recreate what worked in RE4. I would personally put 4 as one of the best games of the 00s (if not the best).
The little I've played of 6 is complete shit. Even when it was on gamefly for $10 I passed.

I don't remember even hearing any of those.  Must have not noticed in the "constantly sprinting around, just trying to survive" heat of the moment.  And did he ever say anything remotely like the truth of "you don't have to fight those guys, just stay alive until we kill them all for you!" or was it more like a vague "just hang on, help is on the way!" useless platitude?

Yeah, and I was grumpy about that too when I first played that game.  Difference is, it's totally beatable.  Just quickly run around and grab some ammo, then hole up in a cul-de-sac and take out all the enemies one-by-one as they come bottlenecking towards you. 

You can't even begin to do that in 5, because of the damn partner.  They run around like short-bus paste-eating retards, right into the hordes of enemies, wasting countless bullets left and right, needing to be healed constantly like a goddamned free-bleeder in a briar patch.  That was really the total and utter dealbreaker for me, learning that THE ENTIRE GAME IS AN ESCORT MISSION.  There is not a big enough dildo in the whole world for me to properly express my feelings of "fuck that".  I don't think I have ever once played a single escort mission that I actually liked, they're inevitably the worst part of every game that includes them.

I thought the RE4 horde was a pretty suspenseful moment and a good challenge. The chainsaw guy is one of my favorite RE baddies. Anytime one would pop up, you'd get that "oh shit!" feeling.

Regarding RE5, yeah, the guy on the radio literally says "Hey Chris, if you run around for a few minutes, I will come and kill everyone so you don't have to, dude". You can try to fight them, and in the process collect several treasures that they drop to then build your weapon stats, or you can run around avoiding them while constantly calling out for Sheva to follow you. It's very doable, it's just not easy, and the bad AI doesn't help things. And I could definitely understand Sheva being a deal breaker. Personally, I found ways to work around her dumb AI.

What made the early RE games so special to me was the fact that they aimed to terrify you even when there weren't a ton of zombies or enemies coming at you.

Whether it was running through creepy hallways, or the score itself.....or something flying by a window that you never necessarily saw again.....those games were pretty creepy to play at the time.

Somewhere along the line Capcom decided that they needed to be turned into action-drive "spray the area with bullets" games and they lost what was so special about them. 

While RE:4 was a great overall game, it still felt like a detachment from the early installments.

The original Dead Space did a pretty good job at re-capturing the early RE formula.

This is exactly why I like the Revelations demo. Especially the score. It goes for all of this. The game probably translates better on the 3DS, but I hope it'll be a solid port.

I'm only a few chapters into revelations for far but:

Pros:
-ship atmosphere
-definetly a mix of old resident evils and new (reminds me of 4)
-Jill levels are low ammo, putting old school stress on the players

Cons:
-game is overpriced. Hard to explain, but you can tell its a port off a handheld
-shitty Chris guns blazing action levels
-shitty new guy guns blazing action levels

The story blows too but it's Resident Evil, so I don't hold that against it. I'm having fun playing it but would def tell people to wait for a price drop.

Did you eat like like a Ji-hibble sandwich?  Did you prove to her storage chest that you were truly the master of unlocking?  Did you ignore all advice that told you don't. open. that. door?

I'm only a few chapters into revelations for far but:

Pros:
-ship atmosphere
-definetly a mix of old resident evils and new (reminds me of 4)
-Jill levels are low ammo, putting old school stress on the players

Cons:
-game is overpriced. Hard to explain, but you can tell its a port off a handheld
-shitty Chris guns blazing action levels
-shitty new guy guns blazing action levels

The story blows too but it's Resident Evil, so I don't hold that against it. I'm having fun playing it but would def tell people to wait for a price drop.

Word, thanks! Gonna wait til it's around $30.

Really liked Revelations on the 3DS. The non-Jill levels mostly suck, but they're generally short enough to not drag the game down too much. Jill's stages are probably as close as we'll get to the original Resident Evil feel in a new RE game.

Just finished Revelations. Definetly better than 5 and 6, but nothing too go crazy about. Last boss was kind of cool though.

I really liked 4 at the time, but in retrospect it pretty much killed the series. Or at least the follow up to it.

Resident Evil Is Getting an HD Remaster

And it's coming to the PlayStation 3, the PS4, the Xbox 360, the Xbox One, and PC in glorious high definition.

According to Famitsu, this is an HD remastering of the 2002 remake, with the goal of keeping the game's sheer terror. Capcom assures that it isn't making any unnecessary changes to the game that will compromise the experience.

Besides enhanced sound, the HD remaster polished and reworked the graphics so they look better—you know, remastered.

The game features both widescreen support and 4:3, and players can switch between the two while playing in real time. In widescreen, players can also use a scroll function, as sometimes background elements will be cut off in widescreen.

The remake comes with a dual control scheme as well—there's the classic controls, as well as a newer control scheme, in which the character moves in the same direction as the analog stick.   

Resident Evil HD Remaster will be released on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on November 27 in Japan. The PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC versions are slated for early 2015. No word yet about a Western release.

You should probably put your bandit hat on now.
