Alright, I'm very opinionated after playing the RE6 demo.  Here's some background:

-I love Resident Evil
-I love, love, love RE4
-I have no problem with the series moving away from horror, though I would still prefer to see a return to the series' roots
-RE5 was like RE4 but without any original ideas and the co-op actually took away from the entire experience

Okay.  I think RE6 (based on the demo, admittedly) is an absolute disaster.  The controls are somewhat improved over RE5 (thank God I can move and shoot now), but the QTEs feel forced, the melee attacks are completely unreliable and yet critical to the gameplay, the shooting controls are terribly inaccurate (though you can apparently improve your aiming ability with skill points) and having X do just about everything in the game creates some awkward moments where I try to run but end up quick turning.  Why not just give us Dead Space style controls and be done with it?  And what the hell is up with the cover mechanic?  Is it that hard to ripoff Gears of War?

Then there's the graphics.  I swear, this game looks worse than RE4 on the GC.  Not only are the graphics so dark you can't see anything unless you set your gamma setting to max, but the zombies all look like shit with awful textures and hideous modeling.  Then there's the game's atrocious framerate, which chugs along like the PS3 is trying to render Crysis on max settings.

I could live with all of that, but the game is just not fun.  The Leon sections shows the most promise with some actual sense of place, immersion and suspense, but Chris and Jake just feel like shit Call of Duty knockoffs with piss poor controls.  I'm honestly mystified with how bad this game plays considering almost all of Capcom is working on this title.  Dead Space 2 is more fun, looks better, and plays better than RE6.  Every video for DS3 has me more excited, and it looks like they are trying to create a solid singleplayer experience to compliment the co-op campaign (and hopefully they pull it off *fingers crossed). 

I was all ready for RE6, but playing the game forced it all the way to the back of my mind and out the other side.  No clue what Capcom thinks they're doing, but I won't be along for this ride.

I really wasn't trying to dismiss it (John said it was hipster Diablo).  I just think T2 is getting a lot of positive feedback because of the outrage over D3.  I said over and over again that it could very well be a good game (I doubt the original Diablo team would screw something up that bad).

We made it to Episode 50.  Let us know what you think!

I need to stop trying to play Borderlands like a single player game.  I played 2 for about an hour last night and was, just like the first game, bored to tears.  I know that this is meant to be a co-op game, but sometimes I like to play by myself.  Guess I'll have to rectify my antisocial habits on this one.

We've talked about this on the podcast a few times, actually.  John tends to read the dialogue rather than watch the cutscene.  You would be shocked how much this can cut down on the playtime.  It also depends on how much you like to explore.  I love to search out every nook and cranny in a dungeon, meaning I get a longer playtime than most in that area.

Also, thanks for pointing out the "Skip the Fade" mod.  That was a cool experience the first time, but I hated going through it again and again.

Damn, now I want to play Origins again.  What a great game!  Still, I can't stand the Mage's Circle section.  I wish we could just take that part of the game out!!

If the leaks are true (as it appears) then this could be really cool.  Fingers crossed!

Watching all of these again made me pick up Downpour on Amazon.  I'm sure we'll hear their thoughts on this in due time. 
324  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Guild Wars 2 Server Selection on: September 05, 2012, 01:45:26 PM
Added everyone that asked and put some politics upgrades on the queue. 
325  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Guild Wars 2 Server Selection on: September 04, 2012, 11:27:05 PM
I'll add them tomorrow.  Feel free to give some input as to what we want to upgrade. 

And, good lord, I saw that you hit 80 and wanted to kill myself.  That's dedication! 
326  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Guild Wars 2 Server Selection on: August 25, 2012, 11:03:14 PM
Added a bunch of people.  Let me know if I missed anyone.
327  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Guild Wars 2 Server Selection on: August 25, 2012, 03:20:00 PM
I started a guild called Emerald Alliance.  I'll add you guys next time I'm online.

My id is PaleRobbie.7841

It's kind of a pain to add people to the guild.  Not sure if you need the id or the character name. 
328  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Guild Wars 2 Server Selection on: August 24, 2012, 09:09:41 PM
Good point.  The guesting feature should make life easier.  I was just trying to make things even easier on everyone.

*goes back and sits in the corner*

I figure that those who want to play Guild Wars 2 together will want to be sure to jump onto the same server when the game launches.  We start playing on Saturday, and I figure this should be the designated world for RPGFan:

Fort Aspenwood

See you in game!

I think John will fire me at some point and replace me with some kind of robot that agrees with him on everything.
