If you work for Capcom, read this. Don't listen to gamers on websites. If you do, you'll end up making a game that sells a few thousand and kill off your series. They are a vocal minority of a minority. RE6 is great and continue in this direction.

Back to da LTTP.

Game is great. Finished all campaigns recently. My boy chris all decked out in military gear like he 'posed to be. Easily my favourite character and campagain. Leons was really good too. It bought back the heavy atmosphere of the old games. Weskers pickney dem campaign was aight but not my favourite. Least favourite was Aida campaign. The ship part was decent but everything else was just waste. Still, i liked every campaign. My boy chris holdin the swole down still. Got me vex the kid Leon could throw hands wit him for a minute. I know it's fantasy with zombies n shit but cmon, if it was real life he'd get clapped.

I swear Leon is a wasteman. That Helena chick was feenin for him and he didnt even try to get the cheeks. Her naked ass sister literally jumped on him. What he do? push of her of the cliff :lolololololol. I remember he did waste shit like this in RE4 too. Aida dont even want him but he still chasing after her. My boy Chris woulda waxed her cheeks off. penshot.

We've all heard enough on the mechanics and yea, theyre that good. Say no more.

Only thing I didnt like was skills. The hell I wanna do RPG shit in this game? Can't stand that but I didnt even use it still. I liked in resident evil 5 where you just get money and buy upgrades.

Another thing i hated is multiple character games. Always feel like im getting 1/4 of a game and short story. Just choose one dude and gimme one story. not some 3 hour ting and see that shit 4x from different view points. Its mainly why i didnt enjoy adai's campaign that much. I had seen everything already. I rate the submarine infiltration tho.

Overall, I rate it. Really liked it and would like to see capcom continue the series in this direction. BUT. Take inspiration from RE5. The game is the best in the series. And IMO the best action game along with gears of war. Multiple characters is ok but make it continuous and not the same situation from different perspective.

To the old fans. You guys need to face da facts. RE has evolved into something better. There's a reason why sales have exploded. Funny thing is, I like the older games too. But I know which way the series needs to be heading. Capcom, just look at the sales. nuff said. I really hope they continue in the direction of RE5/6. We have Silent hill for the pure horror now.

If we're going by sales then CoD is the pinnacle of gaming. RE has simply become another over the top third person shooter which is a very popular genre. Horror has always been a niche market but if devs only made games that cater to the same audience then gaming will become a very redundant and boring hobby.

Helena was pretty sexy.

And if you're into guys, Chris and Piers are pretty much gamefaqs yaoi fanfiction come to life. Something for everybody.

I've only beaten the Chris campaign. Need to play the rest one of these days. The mercenaries mode looks good.

RE6 sure does look great when it's in a tiny gif or thumbnail. But then you play it and see what the textures actually look like. I should consider playing through the game in tiny windowed mode some time.

I'll continue to stand by that it had great mechanics, and basically bad everything else. It doesn't matter how much you love baseball, if the field is covered in thumbtacks and you've got bare feet you're probably just gonna go play something else.

Although that would be a great spectator sport.

I've only played five and six, but I want to play four sometime.


I can't say I really liked six, I didn't know what I was doing most of the time or why. Five felt very much the same way, except it was a lot uglier.

I wouldn't call the direction good.

I've beat every campaign except Ada's and I'm on chapter 2 of that campaign. The bes best 'RE since Code Verona.
I consider RE6 the worst of the new-school Resident Evil games. Meanwhile, I consider Code: Veronica the worst of the old-school ones.

Operation Raccoon City sold more than 2 million copies, and it was even worse than this game. Capcom could publish any piece of crap with the RE name on it, and it would sell regardless.

That's one game I always wanted to play just to see how bad it is. Maybe if it ever dips below $5.

It's all true, but have you played mercs or any multiplayer? There are so many ways to play the game and its genius. I love that they loved giving gamers OPTIONS for how they want to experience the game. This thing is truly ahead of its time.

Eh, I thought most of the scenarios were pretty good for a shooter, it's just that there's occasionally some really weird pacing and sudden scripted events that happen in the strangest ways. Like that fucking ambulance-into-gas-station in Leon's scenario. Out of nowhere.

The combat mechanics are some of the best in the TPS genre. They actually give you options instead of sticking you behind a cover the whole time.

Yeah. I don't want modern RE to go away until other TPS games can even begin to compare. I want at least 1 action oriented RE on current gen only before they even think about rebooting.

Oh and give me a $15-$20 mercenaries game on PSN/XBL/Steam too. Throw in every character you can imagine. RE6/RE7 combat system.

I've actually grown to enjoy the game more after replaying it twice and I'm not as down on it as I was originally was. But I still think the scenarios aren't particularly great, especially compared to RE4 and even some of RE5's. And the plethora of vehicle sections really bugged me. One in RE5 was bad enough, but they're so pervasive in 6.

Evolved into something better? Evolving into a generic TPS with superfluous movement mechanics is not what I would call better.

Is that Wesker mod this or something else?

Generic TPS? You weren't playing it right. If every other TPS played like Mercenaries I'd be buying a lot more TPS games.

Yeah, certainly can't touch RE4, I just thought RE6 brought some good variety in each new area and kept things fresh throughout. I agree about the vehicles. First time playing through Jake's downhill snowmobile section I asked my co-op buddy, "dude....what fucking game are we playing right now?" I like RE6 but it is definitely a mess of ideas.

There's no wrong way to play RE6, because there's not a lot to it. It's fancy movement abilities are pretty pointless when you don't need to use half of them. It's pretty generic when none of the enemies have anything to them beyond simply shoot them a lot. Also pretty shitty when the encounter design is terrible and it likes to just throw enemies at you from any which why without rhyme or reason. Intricate or interesting level design? Nope, generic places and hallways with no thrills to be seen. Oh when we try to offer a more open level, we botch it with a level that is a hassle to trudge through as hey lets randomly slip and fall through the snow. Cool idea. Cool boss battles that require thought or something to them? Nope, generic shoot them a lot bosses. Systems or ideas that will feel fresh and new for a RE game. Nope just more TPS shooting with little new ideas of what to do.

It's a pretty generic and bad game.

I don't even think we played the same RE6. Seriously.

May as well get it over with:

RE6 Mercs/gameplay rocks. Here's a GIF of me and a friend:



Best ways to play RE6:

2. Chris campaign [NSFW]: http://youtu.be/_3MZxFD33x4
My friend uses this, haha. I would use it, too, but I think the boners ruin it. I just want them shirtless with their military pants :( That's way more appealing to me.

Also, the thing about model mods is that I hate hearing the original characters' voices. I avoid them.

This gif is fuckin' awesome and the main reason is that you did all of this via the game's controls/mechanics - if it was another game this would be a big & stupid QTE section, the mechanics in this game allows you to create such cool looking moments and that's the reason I love this game despite it's flaws.

RE6 and Vanquish have easily the best TPS mechanics ever IMO.

Going to ignore most of this post, since you clearly didn't use the word generic enough for my taste, but on this point: I want to know an example of a TPS that has enemies that have "something to them" (which can't be negated by the fact you can shoot them to death), if not RE6.
