The new information for Resident Evil Mercenaries makes the game suddenly look like shit. It's nothing but RE4-5 style combat in a gauntlet. Yay. (NO THANKS)http://www.gametrailers.com/video/gdc-1 ... vil/712055
I never had any interest in this game , it looks exactly like what I expected it to be, a supped up stand alone version of the mercenaries mini game from RE4 and RE5, the only difference is they are trying to pepper in a bit of story with it but meh.
the fact this fucker in the video says "we are really proud of all
the stories we've told leaves me with even less hope that the next installment of the series will hopefully not be as fucking goofy as 5. also fuck this guy, everything about re4 and re5 is the core essence of what resident evil is all about? I hope this guy chokes to death very slowly on a fiery rancid turd.
resident evil revelations on 3ds looks slightly more interesting to me then mercs , same graphics and same 3rd person switch to first person to shoot game play but its an actual entire game / story not just a glorified mini game, but after RE5 I am not sure how excited I am for it, I used to eat breathe and sleep Resident Evil but now, it really feels like the series has to do something truly great to win me back over.
talking about first impressions with all this RE talk makes me think of what link said abovehttp://ps3.ign.com/articles/115/1157169p1.html
RE 4 and RE : Code Veronica is getting updated and a fresh coat of HD paint and being released on xbox and ps3? this has the potential to be very cool!
EDIT - to reply to what link said above too, RE4 on the WII is probably my favorite WII game, that shit plays perfectly, that being said, this could bode VERY well for the RE4 remake on the PS3, slick new HD ps3 graphics + RE4 WII's gameplay via the move could make for the best RE game since the end of the ps1 era.
