    First ORC*, and now this. Capcom, why have you forsaken us?

    Some comic relief. You know, to lighten the depression.













    *Yes, I know that Capcom actually outsourced the development of ORC to Slant Six Games, but it was still Capcom's decision.

    Kotaku: Our source says versus 13 is canned"

    You can ignore them, they only post crap for site hits

    And after that, RE 6 turbo max hd full edition 2 hyper mode.
    By the way, I love your title lol.

    Anyways, I never care what sites rate games. If I'm interested in the game, I'll buy it and decide for my self if I wasted my money or not. Which is exactly what I'll do with this game.

    I was really looking forward to this title. I'm still going to get it but I guess I'll keep in mind not to get my hopes too high.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to Best Buy to pick up my pre-ordered copy of the RE6 Anthology, shitty reviews or not.

    But I'm pretty convinced that it won't be like my RE4 experience was.

    Puff ...I never trust game reviews too much ...this sites always look to adulterate them a lot sometimes, it's crazy.

    Just for reference, here are other reviews to see how random it is:

    Digital Chumps 9.2 out of 10
    EGM 8.5 out of 10
    Game Informer 8.75 out of 10
    GameSpot 4.5 out of 10
    IGN 7.9 out of 10
    Play UK 88 out of 100
    Playstation Official Magazine UK 7 out of 10
    Playstation Official Magazine US 9 out of 10
    Playstation Universe 8.5 out of 10
    Xbox360Achievements 77 out of 100
    Gaming Age B+
    IGN 7.9 out of 10

    We can't trust anyone :ninja:

    Resident Evil 6 isn't a bad game but it isn't great. Plus only a quarter or so of the reviews are negative. It weaves four stories together well but has camera problems. The quick time events suck in my opinion but it has decent gameplay. The controller layout is alright really wish they change a couple of things here and there since it could control so much better. The tutorial should also tell you the basics of close combat combat, herbs and countering but it doesn't. Honestly even with the problems and the less then par tutorial I still give it a 8/10.

    I'm keen enough to try it, but not at full price. Will await the steam sales and hope the pc community can do some patching to fix things up

    I decided to wait, I just used the same money to buy One Piece for PS3. I'm sure the price will drop by atleast 20$ within the month, probably even more by Black Friday.

    All these low reviews are giving me flashbacks to RE:ORC, and overall all the gameplay changes just make me sad.

    I've never said that I didn't look at what they say about the games. It's the only thing I give some attention to in game reviews actually
    Even though they frequently are adulterated and not that good too

    Why is it that whenever a news site says something someone disagrees with, the response is always, "oh, it's X site, they got this one thing wrong, so they can't be trusted on anything"? News sites are made up of MANY more writers/journalists than just that one (or few) that make occasional mistakes, you know. Not to mention that there's no telling how long after the reporter in question is still around.

    I use Gamefly so Resident Evil 6 is in the mail right now. I pay a small fee a month to play all these games that would cost me hundreds and hundreds of dollars to buy and play through each one of them. And in the end if I end up liking one of the games I rented I can buy it off of them at a discount. Its a win win situation.

    I, for one, don't agree with the reviews. I have loved all the Resident Evil games I've played (RE 4, 5, 6, 0, 1, and Revelations). 6 seems like a mix of 4 and 5 so far, which is AWESOME, for me. Just my 2 cents anyway, but whatever.

    Well Capcom itself said it a few months back. That Resident Evil 6 will be more action based. But anyway is frustrating to see in what Resident Evil has become even the storyline.
