Everyone plays as a zombie and people like Claire and Leon are raid bosses. Tyrants are quest givers.
A bit different, but a Majini/Ganado/Zombie Hunter mode a la Lost Planet would be awesome. 16+ player matches with 4 people as defenders, everyone one else enemies. Would be awesome.

If Leon is not in RE6 Mercenaries, there will be hell to pay.

It seems odd that they would reveal re6 right now, i would have thought they would have switch focus to resident evil revelations on the 3DS

No Leon, no sale. Roid-Chris had the charisma of a soggy corn flake (plus the game was a turd).

Even without Infune's rambling I figured TGS would produce and announcement trailer at the least. With Platinum having shipped Bayonetta and Vanquish in 2010 and the offical unveiling of Suda & Mikami's new survival horror title for EA, the P* Games folks have been kinda raining on Capcom's parade this year. I don't expect Capcom to just take it lying down. Now if only P* made a fighting game:D

Sega trying to battle Capcom? Whoever loses, we win.

RE6 also needs to at least double the number of enemies attacking you. Needs coop and single player.

WEll Platinum, Sega just got lucky and got the publishing deal, but we will see how long that last. Personally I always thought that Platinum, Grasshopper and Tango would merge and become their own publisher. But thats crazy off-topic talk.

But I wouldn't mind seeing RE6 or a spin-off series at TGS in addition to Revelations

YES! RE5 is still one of the top co-op games out there, which features some of the best gunplay in a 3rd person action game.

How about new characters?
Chris and Jill are in Revelations (and 5), so I assume they won't be leads in the next one. It would be nice to see some new faces.
and moar Sheva plz

He DID dodge the missile so it's quite obvious RE6 is in the making.

If you say anything else, you're wrong. I've watched that part in hyper rapid slow motion in x5, x10 and x20 zoom over 50 times and I can confirm it.

Maybe he DID dodge the missile, but he hadn't dodge a lava shower. And Uroboros is very, VERY vulnerable to hot stuff. To the point hot stuff kills it.

I really enjoyed the Lost in Nightmares DLC, so I'd quite like to see Capcom attempt to blend the two styles a bit more. I'm looking forward to seeing what they've got planned anyway! :D

Did you miss the announcement where Capcom said they would have minimum one mainline RE title each year along with periphery titles?

RE5 sold really well and Capcom did drink deep.

And they made him a Lord of Cinder. Not for virtue, but for might. Such is a lord, I suppose. But here I ask. Do we have a sodding chance?

The fact that he could still dodge a missile with that kind of speed shows that the lava was nothing for him. The shouting must've been from the frustration of letting Chris flee once again.

Here's my idea for an RE game: Viewtiful Barry. Call me, Capcom. We can make dreams come true here.

that's an ULTRA games property, and you fucking well know it.

I don't really care who the main character is; I'm more interested to see what they do to alter the formula of the games (if anything).

Wow. I really hope they go either completely back to the horror genre or make a good third person shooter. Resident Evil 5 is a good game, but I hope they won't have their stupid "you cannot walk while you shoot" rule next time. I cannot wait to replay RE5 with Move. :)

Quite possibly the most overrated Resident Evil character. She only had but only needed ONE appearance, thanks.

She was a more major character, sure, but asking for more of her is like asking for more Sherry or more Ashley.

I, personally, would LOVE to see Leon again in RE6, since he's my favorite character in the series. But, honestly, I don't see him being in the game since he already got a lead role in RE2, received top billing in the amazing RE4, and then appeared in the likes of Darkside Chronicles and the movie Degeneration.

Like I said, bringing Barry back would be sweet, but I'm also not against bringing new characters into the fold. Then again, Capcom may not want to alienate the millions of people who have been buying RE games all along, so the chances that we'll see a familiar character, at least in a supporting role, are pretty high.

God yes. I loved RE5 so much and the amount of time I put into it is disgusting. Give me more!

What I'd like to see:

1) More characters on screen, like the first gameplay trailer.
2) Zombies.
3) Claire, Leon or even Sheva.
4) A HUGE Mercs mode. DLC, it's own standalone DD release, I don't care. I demand more and I demand it to be expandable.

Please make the zombies threatening and I don't mean making them bullet sponges.

Thank you.
The enemies should be threatening, but the threat should balance with a lowered amount of how much the game gives you to defend yourself. It'd be nice if RE6 took the "progressive quest" approach of RE4, but put the game at a slower pace and made it so you benefit from conserving ammo and taking strategic approaches to enemies, sort of like the old games.

I don't see an issue with mixing simple survival concepts of the earlier games with more complex approaches to strategy in the newer games.

Mercs was WAY too much of a focus in RE5. Took away from the potential of the rest of the game, in my opinion. Same goes for co-op play and the entire idea of multiplayer, honestly.

Why not just separate RE from Mercs and give Mercs its own game? Then they could really go all-out with it. Resident Evil: The Mercenaries. I can see it on the shelves right now.

I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that the current enemy A.I style is overhauled. The run up to you and stop techniques, or the painfully embarrassing chainsaw in a straight line boredom needs to end.

I think the worst case scenario for RE6 are Dead Space 1 controls in an environment low on atmosphere with coop.

After Resident Evil 5 I don't think I even want another Resident Evil game unless somehow Shinji Mikami is involved.

Did you miss the part where it was a translation error and they meant they will be releasing big titles "like Resident Evil" as quickly as possible, not JUST Resident Evil? >_>

Ada Wong is due to make her long awaited return.

Hopefully this time it will be a proper survival horror with modern gameplay.
But TGS seems to be shaping up as an interesting event.
