All About Savoritias
Resident Evil came out about a week ago and have received various scores from lowest to highest. Many have hated Gamespot for giving it a low score or Ign for a high score. But is it really that bad?
The truth is fans of the original won't like it at all this action focused sequel. But the newcomers fans will find as an action packed game with a movie direction. In my opinion I am not going to say if Resident Evil 6 is good or bad. That is no the case with this game. But one thing is for sure the game has lost its routs. If you look at the first two games and at RE6 it is obvious that something has changed. There is not the survival or the horror in 6 just a mix of "I am trying to be scary" with action of shooters. How did this happen? A few months ago around the first trailer for RE6 was released the developer made a statement that survival horror games are not selling anymore. That leads to the game we have now. Which the main problems is that it has no identity. The reason it attracts many newcomers is the lore that Resident Evil is scary and that if you play it and you don't scare you are badass. That is wrong. If the same game was released with another name then it would have been an absolute disaster. The game doesn't know what it wants to be. It wants to be a action game then stop using the Resident Evil label at the box as an excuse for horror! It want to be a horror game then make it so! If the survival horror games don't sell as the developer said, which I disagree completely, then start a new franchise and leave the survival horror genre to someone like Frictional games that made the excellent Amnesia.
As the last three games like Resident Evil 5, 6 and Operation Raccoon City has shown Capcom is not going to return to the roots of the series anytime soon. All I can hope for in the next game is to know what genre is this game. Action? Horror? a game like a movie with cutscenes and full of slow time events?
Resident evil is a shinny example of the extinguish of genres we are going through. All genre will be merged to one: action.
All the internet is waiting eagerly the new Borderlands 2 to be realeased this fall. But I was completely stunt a few days ago when I read that the development of the game has been finished and now the studio is starting to produce the DLC scedgeluded for the game. So what? I will pay 70 euros for the game and then another 70 for the DLC? And they want me to buy it? I know that they are getting quality content as a DLC and I hope the DLC are not every two months. But even with that telling the gamers that you have finished the game two months earlier and now you are making the DLC is like laughing at their for accepting it! And I ask here if they make they complete a DLC ( of the ten DLC no doubt) before release will they add with the game or it will be a day one DLC? And I also know that the ones who preorder the game get the DLC for free but this doesn't solve anything. They just want gamers to think they are taking a fair price game. THey need to fix the core of the prblem: NO DLC'S!!!! CD Project never released a DLC and it was one of the best games ever. Don't take me wrong I am not against DLC. Actually Skyrim released Dawnguard DLC about a few yeeks ago and it was very good but they didn't announce that they are working on a DLC two months before the release of the game!
Another company that has done that is Ubisoft. Yesterday they announced that the DLC's that will be released for the Assassins Creed III will be the most the indutry has ever seen. THe game is still going to break records. Are you kidding me? They told exactly in your face that we will take every last buck, euro I don't know what you have in your place just because you like the series! Where is a real movement to stop Ubisoft from doing that beside writing comments? The gamers that will actually opose to this thing and won't buy the game are 1-2% nothing more. Where is a big movement that will freeze the sales of any company that makes DLC's and will make them release game with freee adiitional content or at least a fair bargain! The prices of the games are already high. Didn't you got your money? Activision earned 1 billion just from the sales of the game. So tell me did they need to release 5 additional collections? Let aside that they release a new game this year and all the players will move to the new game (as it breaks another record) and the old will be useless!I know the industry is never going to be the best. I know that some gamers will always by games like Capcom's which locked the DLC on the disk and the developer dare to say that he is sorry the DLC was hacked or the Assassins Creed 3 with you play double price at the end or even COD which is the same every year! Let alone the yearly releases. The new Unreal Engine said it is going to shorten the development periods. To what 6 months?
I now I wrote to much on this subject but the recent news with Ubioft and Epic really made me angry adn dissapoint. Where is the community. It is like we are sheep in a line. Almost everyone is complaing but the line keeps going and they keep taking our money. They don't care for the few who wake up and don't buy this game. They just tell to the others that whoever preorders get the DLC's free and they believe them. Maybe I told the story too bold but I want to know what is your opinion on the matter. Tell your opinion in the comments and share this because we really need to wake up the community.
Today Criterion announced the obvious: the company will be making from now on both the Need for Speed and the Burnout series. Either the two series finally become one or the one series will be into the other. Either way one thing is sure the two series will never be the same and that is not necessarily a bad thing.
The series from now have a new face and this has first become clear through the 2010's Need for Speed Hot Pursuit that brough with it the first sign that the series is becoming more and more similar to the Burnout and the online. The new face of the series will be completed with the upcoming Need for Speed Most Wanted which the name tries to fool you with the amazing game of the 2005 that has been one of the best games in the series but it is not. The game has no singleplayer but it gives all the efforts on the autolog system. That pulls away all the good single player that few games ago the series was known for. Now the series has become a permanent online connection game with destructions from burnout and a thousands dlc's after the games launch, not mentiong the terrible way EA treats games with the examples of Dragon Age 2 and Mass Effect 3. The truth is whoever has played the old games will feel betrayed by Criterion which in my opinion has destroyed the two series. For Burnout the series has a history of good games and should not be finished like that it has a lot more potential to give and fun games like Burnout Revenge.
As of all I reccomend EA to give the Burnout series to another company so it can move on and to tell Criterion to cut the crap with stealing awesome games from the past and just add autolog but to make a real new game with singleplayer for once to see what Criterion trully worths. For me the sad truth is that we will never see a burnout game again aside what the Criterion says and the Need for Speed series has a new face which is in favor f the newcomers, the dlc's and the internet.
