Did anyone else get a vibe that there's a 3rd playable character? The dialoge had him talking about his blood and everyone wanting it. Wild guess.....Steve from Code Veronica?

There is going to be a 3rd playable character, and possibly Ada Wong after you finish the Leon, Chris and 3rd Guy's campaign

I personally think the trailer looks awesome and why is it whenever a game has a cover shooting element in it, everybody cries that it's an rip of of GOW? I'm sick of people saying it looks like Gears of Wars with Zombies. Why not wait for the game to come out and maybe it will be scary?


Dude that scene with Chris and his squad looked just like Gears.

Has anyone noticed that Capcom lied too us? They said after RE5 was released that the story arc was done and they where going to reboot it. Not sure what to think of RE6 looks a lot like RE5 with amped up action.

I'll stick with Revalations which is ACTUALLY like classic RE from what I played of the demo today.

Resident Evil 6 is the straw that broke the camel's back. Capcom's not even trying, they're just making Gears of War with Leon and Chris as guest stars. Of course they know idiots will buy it anyway.

Pfffft. Well count me in as an "idiot" too.

I love the Biohazard series, and while RE5 was a big disappointment, I'm not going to pass on this game because the last wasn't all that stellar.

I miss the more atmospheric, puzzle heavy games too (which is why RE2 will always be my favorite), but I still like the RE4/5 style/gameplay engine a lot. Hopefully there will be a much bigger emphasis on horror this time around (though I'm not getting my hopes up, even if the trailer seems promising in that regard), and less poop that seems like an action movie with a horror "touch" like the last game was.

Get yourself a 3DS if you don't have one already; you'll love RE Revalations it's EXCACTLY like classic RE games I got that feeling after getting more time in with the demo last night.

I will do just that, good sir. Once I have the extra $, I'll definitely be buying a 3DS. I loved what I played of Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7.

Revelations looks a lot like classic RE, and sounds like it will be just that. It will probably be my first 3DS purchase.

this was only a trailer maybe the game could have a little bit of horror. (Wishful thinking).


No, it won't. It looks like some chessy action game and it looks rediculous. It has Leon jumping around all over the place like some super Kung Fu hero. It certainly won't have horror in it. Resident Evil died with RE4 and now it's turned into Call of Duty.



I don't recall any COD game where I slide and shoot.


I was talking about how the game looks like mindless action with skreeonking explosions everywhere. Resident Evil used to be great. I enjoyed the RE4/RE5 gameplay style but, those games didn't feel like Resident Evil and this doesn't look anything like Resident Evil. It looks more like a game adaptation of the movies with all the chessy action.

The female seen in the trailer for RE6 isn't Ashley

http://kotaku.com/5877808/a-few-scant-n ... -creep-out

But yeah Goji Revalations had a very classic RE vibe to it the only thing that makes it a little less like classic RE is that scanner thing they've added then again you could always view that as innovation and not a hindurance.

Things that stick out about revaltions that make it classic RE

-limited ammo
-puzzles are back *minor spoilers* you start off trapped in your cabin on the ship and you have to go find a screw driver to unlock a panel so you can progress
-controlls

The article didn't mention the blonde girl who was with the 3rd protagonist who apparently has the blood everyone needs.

They say it's the girl Leon was talking too. He was talking to the blonde girl.

Even though I think this looks more of the same as RE5 I'll still get it, I just won't be getting the CE unless it has in game content; I was dissapointed by the RE5 CE.

Maybe they just hired the same voice actress and that's why Sherry sounds like Ashly.


Yeah I thought they sounded exactly the same

Did you play the DLC "Lost in Nightmares"? That was pretty sweet. Very much like RE1


I did actually! It was just over too soon. :(

Give me back the horror gameplay.


THIS! :D

I heard the people at Capcom were trying to make this a horror experience. Judging by the trailer, I guess they talked to the makers of Troll 2 to find out what "horror" was.

You realize it's probably gonna be split right?

Leon gets horror, Chris gets action, and the new guy probably gets the QTEs.


"Leon gets horror"? Did you even watch the trailer with Leon sliding around all over place and explosions everywhere? If that's what "horror" is supposed to be than I'm confused.

It's very hard to do horror when the player has no sense of tension for the game he/she is playing. That's why many people don't take RE4 seriously as a horror game due to abundance of ammo and more open spaced level design. I suppose some could argue that the latter (and aged tank controls) artificially creates horror, but nevertheless I find it far more scary to rush through a tight hallway of zombies with just a knife vs. sitting in a locked room and aiming my fully loaded pistol at the only entrance for "zombies" to climb into.

But to be fair, the RE4 Chainsaw guy was pretty scary.
