So as per usual my language is confusing the frig out of people.  Resident Evil 4 was a rightfully popular game that Capcom ported to everything that moves.  Final Fantasy III is an enjoyable game forgotten by most until 2007 and then forgotten again... yet Sqaure has been porting the remake to everything that moves.  FF3 is trying to be Resident Evil 4, in trying to make a quick buck by getting on everything that moves. But it's not the game that would.

This 3D After Years is news to me.  Wrong again, I guess.

Resident Evil 4 is like Final Fantasy VII. It made a popular franchise into a major hit that pretty much everybody has played (and if you haven't, you're missing out.) However, there are some people who love to hate it, because it marks when Resident Evil became more mainstream.

There are people who don't even think RE4 was good at what it itself was trying to do; get something popular enough and people can hate it on its own merits.

@ Taiyz:

If its a GOOD reboot I wouldn't mind.... At this point I just think they need to focus less on the coop aspect. I'm still for multiplayer/coop modes, but I think a well made SP campaign would be great if it was done in a different direction than the recent games. I wanted to enjoy 6, I really did, but I couldn't in the end. While I thought having three separate campaigns with intersections was a great idea, the gameplay just didn't do it for me.


(I'm not one of those oldschool people that hate 4 though. I love 4 as well as the older ones)

People largely ignored Resident Evil Revelations until it got a console port, for whatever reason. I'm of the opinion that, while the game does a good job of hearkening back to the pre-RE4 days, and I'm glad that's what people focused on, I actually think that it doesn't do a great job because it's so linear.

If they could make a game with a similar map style, but didn't have a constant waypoint telling you exactly where to insert your newly found crank, didn't have so many points of no return (or really, any at all,) objectives that actually crisscross over the whole map, and is actually designed FOR next gen consoles so the map can actually be pretty large, then you'd have a great classic-style Resident Evil style without having to go back to tank controls and fixed camera angles.


A problem I have with a lot of RE fans is that they believe that there isn't room for both types of games. I mean come on, there were 5 traditional Resident Evils (not counting REmake,) the Outbreak games on the side, various rail shooters, and the action-style co-op extravaganzas. Revelations even returned to a traditional style while maintaining a co-op bonus mode with a lot of depth. Sure RE4-6 stole the spotlight for a longer duration of time, but still, it's better that Capcom tries to switch things up than bleed the series dry.

Then there are the people who just don't like the modern games because they're "not scary." There's really not much Capcom can do about that, modern horror games just aren't scary unless you remove all weapons from the player (see Amnesia and Outlast.) I'm even hearing that the game that was lauded for being directed by Resident Evil's original creator is pretty laughable because there's just too much ammo you can go through it guns-blazing.


I keep thinking, quite frankly, I've been scared more by powerful enemies in Dark Souls than in a lot of modern horror games. It makes one think that maybe limitations are what really makes a lot of horror games scary (apart from obnoxious jump scares.) I mean, the original RE games forced you to use resources sparingly, from ammo to health to save ribbons...Each time you got hit was a bad sign, and wasting bullets always made you feel shitty. For Resident Evil to be scary again, Capcom might just have to make the games really fucking hard.

well that makes perfect sense.

People who defend Code Veronica deserve no sympathy.

I honestly don't know why Code Veronica got so much praise back in the day. Sure it did away with prerendered visuals, but it basically threw away all of RE3's advancements.

But hopefully we can agree that it has one of (if not the most) memorable RE soundtracks!

We're gonna have to forget about a lot of games. Namco and Konami have decided to start being awesome now, particularly with Namco's attention to Tales and One Piece (and Konami started being awesome with Revengeance's DLC) but it's too late to save any PSP games from obscurity.

I know. The fans are taking care of it (eventually) anyway. I was just kinda like "oh hey, a game based on that .hack// wannabe. I never asked for this, but cool."

I'd potentially be more interested in the Magi games on 3DS if they localized those to be honest - though I'd have to look at the gameplay, they might actually be crap.

That's... certainly odd... She can't fight and her Persona have no active Skills.

I'll throw money at anything Ys. Despite having already played the game on 3 different systems.

That'd be 3 reasons to get Steam if that happens.

Origin, Napishtim, and SC HD

I gotta say, fighting with a mic and a mic stand is a pretty awesome idea.

I'm sure there's a video of Hataune Miku or another Vocaloid doing it somewhere on Nico Nico Douga. And Miku's bound to be one of Rise's palette swaps now >_>
