:bulletblue: No Hope Left

"No Hope Left"? Couldn't of said it better myself!

I know I've talked about RE6 plenty of times here; Journals, reviews, comments, discussion, what have you. Regardless of all that and how public I tried to make my opinions, people still wanted to see it in video form. And personally, I figure an animation pumped full of over-exaggerated rage probably gets the message across a lot more colorfully.

The way this video came out seems kind of surreal. I opted to use stock photos and icons to give it an awkward, pseudo-realism background. Similar to how once beloved characters are being plunged into a world they don't belong in, so too are my drawings. Deep as shit, man. But no worries, this background style is probably gonna be a one-time thing.

Some of the artwork and animation in the beginning is a little sloppy, but once I'd gotten so far in I really didn't wanna go back and re-draw everything. Hell, I had a few days of just flat out not wanting to work on this. Even when trying to comically embarrass characters I hate, I still found it to be a struggle to want to even draw them.

...Yeah, that's pretty much all true.

Le sigh. I'll just pretend that the remaining STARS members beat the crap out of Umbrella and exposed them for the sick sons of bitches that they were, leading to mass trials and executions.

And that Berry got his own game and Rebeca came back and STARS finished Wesker off final boss style. Epic and rocket launcher to the face.

I'm not gonna say that to me RE6 is a funny game and not just "crap".
I'm not gonna say that old RE fan should look back and admit that the franchise has been evoluting from survival to action since the third episode.

I'm just not gonna talk about my opinion about RE6, since I know your opinion and respect it, and if you remember mine, I believe you also understand it even if you don't share it.

 

I'll just ask the most important question.

The primal one.

The most serious one.

The most crucial one.

The one my whole life now depends on.


Does that mean we're gonna have your version of RE 6 like welcome to africa for RE 5 ?

But seriously I'm starting to feel like the horor genra in third person games is starting to get "passÚ". I had good hope with dead space (well placed hope when you see the result), but now I'm thrilled and scared at the same time with Evil Within (visual looks amazing, but I saw some gameplay with guns and laying traps that looked like the "defending the house" scene from RE 4)But seriously I'm starting to feel like the horor genra in third person games is starting to get "passÚ".

Omg dem dubbs.

But the answer is no. Unlike RE5, RE6 was released WAY too fast to have the time to gather a coherent prediction, let alone make an entire video. For Welcome to Africa, I literally took a guess at the plot based on the trailers and information given. RE6 was so rushed, I don't even think the developers could think of a coherent story either.

Personally the controls for 4,5,and 6 are way more enjoyable. I have felt at times that the old ones are so frustrating they are unplayable. I love them but they are not scary and I wish people would stop saying that. Bottom line Zombies are so over done that it isn't scary. Everyone always thinks the new thing sucks and isn't as good as the old one. I can understand not enjoying something but I am getting so tired of negativity. I like RE6! I like 1,2,3,4,5,6, code veronica, revelations. I can see them for what they are and can see they are changing with the gaming industry. Leon and Chris are experienced in this now and things aren't going to be like they used to be. I love the main characters and think that there is some clever stuff over the surface. People keep saying "oh its not scary like dead space" DEAD SPACE ISNT SCARY! People only like cheap jump scares. Play Rule of Rose, Silent Hill, Haunting Ground way more thought out in the horror department. I am just here to be the minority I guess cause I'm really sick of seeing people trash things that I love and I realize I'm all over the place defensive but oh well. can't we just stop hating everything so much? The internet is such an angry culture.

I'm sure you mean well. You like the new games, and are trying to defend their right to exist. But look at things from the perspective of fans who have been with RE from the beginning. Change is inevitable, and can even be good sometimes. Too much change can also alienate. Imagine if they made Zelda an RPG, killed off Ganon, made the enemies pig farmers, made Link a musclebound behemoth, and turned Princess Zelda into Chun-Li. That's the kind of change that's been happening with RE lately. If you don't voice your displeasure when radical changes are made, and simply let younger gamers buy up all the latest products, then corporations like Capcom wont feel obligated to the older fans who made them rich to begin with.

Businesses primarily care about sales figures. When critics cause less consumers to buy a product, companies will take note and change their strategies. If you're not vocal enough, the gaming industry wont think you even care about the changes it makes. If people didn't complain about the Star Wars prequels so much, we might not have gotten the new Star Wars sequels. Whether those will be good or not, we have yet to see. There's at least a chance they'll be an improvement over the prequels. The same can be said of the RE franchise. All the backlash from fans could cause Capcom to take RE back to its roots. With the potential for a truly suspenseful game like the REmake.

The reason Capcom gave up on making more REmakes, is because they weren't selling as well as games like Call of Dodo. Just because Call of Diddy is financially successful, doesn't mean the rest of the industry needs to emulate it in order to thrive. With the right creative team (and enough fan support), a newer, scarier RE could sell several million units. Maybe not outsell Call of Dooku, but at the very least make more than its budget back. RE6's budget was too big. Like, 100 million dollars big.  RE shouldn't require a Hollywood-size budget to sell. According to a forum, RE2 cost around 8 million dollars. I'm not an expert on inflation, or how that money translates in today's economy, but it seems well under 100 million. RE6 has sold around 5 million units. Do you know how many units RE2 has sold? Around 5 million. Maybe 6 will sell more in coming years, but lucratively, as far as budget and earnings are concerned, RE2 is the more successful game. Proof enough that change isn't always for the better.

How can you assume that I haven't been a fan from the beginning? Just because I disagree with you. I started with RE 1 so don't tell me to see it from that perspective when I am. 

Look I understand where you are coming from but people are just throwing on full rage and not saying anythin productive. A lot of times it looks like fans dont know what they want and they just turn into angry monsters. 

It would be better scary but when people think dead space is terrifying I don't have high hopes for that. 

People talk about 4 like it was the greatest game ever. I love four but its not scary, it has the new controls, it doesn't take itself seriously (fine because the older ones were like B horror movies I get that), and they weren't zombies. Pretty much the same things everyone complains about in the other games. So why is it so much better?

Well I can agree that the original Resident Evil games weren't AS scary as Silent Hill or Fatal Frame. RE doesn't exactly dive into psychological terror or subconscious abominations, but it does have a different tactic; Better worded as "tension" in my opinion. Unlike SH and FF, RE had that whole limited inventory situation and claustrophobic environments. It was "scary" in a sense trying to ration your items and keep yourself alive. Knowing you had limited resources made the zombies and monsters seem all that more threatening; Not necessarily horrifying though.

Sure maybe zombies are overdone looking at the gaming world as a whole; But RE was basically one of the pioneering games which made them mainstream to begin with. Taking the zombies out of RE is like taking taking the ghosts out of Fatal Frame, or hell, the goombas out of Mario. If Capcom felt zombies were "overdone" they should of simply made a new IP. Not to mention, the zombies in RE6 are the first we've seen in a main-titled RE game in the past 14 years. Even more if you don't consider Code Veronica a main-title game.

Unfortunately that's just how things are. I and many others don't like RE6, or any of the other newer titles. It's not unreasonable for us to feel angry and betrayed by Capcom, whom we've supported financially and morally for years. If RE6 had anything positive going for it, I would have mentioned it just as equally, but there just isn't. Not for me.

Its stuff like what you showed in the video is why I'm so willing to hop onto that "Evil Within" train.

Your animation has come a long way though and it looks really nice and cute. 

I seriously wonder sometimes what Capcom is going to do with RE after this mess. In some sick way I hope that if they keep going the action route the equivalent of being booed off stage happens to them, maybe someone will bring rotten tomatos.
Or "Evil Within" does so well that they come to a similar conclusion that Square recently did when they noticed how well "Bravely Default" sold.

Something along the lines of, "Holy crap! Its almost like if we make a good game, then people will like it!" 

I really, really hope that Shinji Mikami just blows everything out of the water and shows us all how its done. 

On a slightly more upbeat note, that little bit you did there at the end made me chuckle.

I like the new video, but after saw it I've started to play RE6 again...I don't know why. ░_O
My reactions to the new characters:
Helena: oh, I like her...she has an hydra, I LOVE HER!
Piers: (before his dead) WTF!? Josh? Jill? Sheva? Where are the veterans?
          (after his dead) Ok, better to him than to another of the veterans.
Jake: give me a volcano...and a couple of rocket launchers!
However, to me the worst product of this franchise is the comic "Resident Evil: Marhawa Desire"

Chris turned into an amnesia'd asshole.
Leon turned into a fangirl magnet with shiny-ass hair. I think it turned into pure gold. Or someone just pee'd on his head every time it was loading.
Sherry turned into a.. lets say, what, 18 year old girl? Who thinks she's all that with her agent badge.
Ada.. Well.. She seems the same for me, but there is something differ-Oh. It's the clone. Ew.
Sheva completely died. Josh, too. And Jill. Don't forget Jill.
A Japanese pretty soldier boy appeared. Capcom just slapped him on, named him Piers.
Another slapped on character, at least they put a little thought and added a bit of family, also with shiny-ass hair. Bet she joined Leon. Complains about its not time yet.
And... The OC... The son of Wesker. Some YOLO Circus freak who apparently can do anything with poles. Why don't you make him a stripper, Capcom? Bet he'd make a hit, since he's the "savior of the world" 
Holy shit, Crapcom.

You could say things like this for every game out there. There are plenty of good things about Resident Evil. I'm sure if it was exactly the same you'd all be whining too. 
You bring up Sheva? Sheva is mentioned in documents and who gives a crap she's a supporting character. 
Sherry doesn't know what she's doing because they just slapped her in that spot to get Jake.
Piers is awesome and is not some japanese solider. 
Chris was pretty much the same as he's always been except a little darker. 

Listen, I agree that stuff could've been done better, Clone Ada- dumb. They should've made Ada the bad guy. I kinda feel like youre looking at it way on the surface.

I agree with you. But people hate Sheva because of her AI. I liked her, and I thought she should have been brought more into the story, but that's my opinion.
Sherry is like what, 18, now? And she was just like.. 13 in the Racoon City incident. Leon looks like its only been like 4 years. 
I like Chris. He just seems different in RE6, and it's not all that amnesia shit.
Ada would do better as the bad guy instead of Simons. She's way smarter than him, and would totally be more succeeding in ending the world. Hell, i'd rather have that than have RE7.
Piers. He's cool. I like him. I still feel like they just slapped him on though. It's just a feeling.

Oh man I was getting ready for a fight and you calmed me down lol. I agree with you pretty much. It would be nice to see more of what Chris went through. There is some stuff in the documents about him being a body guard and all but I think chris' character has always leaned this way. he has always been obsessive now he just has a darker attitude about it. 

Leon's was the weakest in my opinion. I would've loved to see them explore the relationship between him and Ada even if she was the bad guy.

As much as I love these characters I would be happy if they came to a satisfying end.

They always pack on a the side characters. I feel like Piers added more than Sheva but I like Sheva and I wish there was more of her story in 5. I also miss Jill lol.

Same here about the fight thing! I find fights especially useless! It's better to settle it like actual adults than kids.
Leon was just put in the story only to make the fangirls and their AdaXLeon top go on more. Myself included a little bit on the OTP. 
But i'm okay with Chris, and Piers. I just hated that they just dropped Sheva, and only bothered to put her only in documents. Jill was cool. She's a blondie. I miss those two ladies a lot. But in RE6 it's like, "You're an agent, you're an agent, and you're an agent."
