Isn't an open world zombie game pretty much just Dead Rising? They already have that. Though maybe since the creator left Capcom they don't want to use that franchise anymore.

Is RE: Revelations any good? I just got a 3DS and I'm looking for titles.

I'm pretty biased, but I will say it's probably one of the best RE game we had in a long long time.

It's the closest any recent RE games has gotten to survival horror, the bestiary is unique(though this applies to all RE games), and the story is actually not half bad. Lastly, it's one of the very few 3DS games where the 3D is worthwhile. Oh, and the zombies in this game is more zombie than those plaga jerks in 4, 5, and 6.


My only complaint is that it takes the franchise no where. It didn't take place after the latest RE game at the time, it only took place spoiler[inbetween 4 and 5. So whatever happens in the game, you know it had absolutely NO relevance to the overall story of the franchise.
]


Do note the bias though. I liked the game, therefore there's probably a level of bias to it.

It's practically confirmed that Capcom Vancouver is working on Dead Rising 3.

The problem with Capcom is that they think they know what us 'westerners' want in games; action. However, they are very wrong.
Yes, we love our action games, but Resident Evil is loved due to its survival horror routes. Resident Evil 4 got the mix between horror and action perfectly. Then we had the awful messes that are Resident Evil 5 and 6.
Hopefully the negative feedback of these games and the now bargain bin prices will give them the hint that we want to go back to basics. If I wanted to play a Gears of War style action game, I'll just play Gears of War. Capcom, take note.

RE4 was pretty good and I appreciated how the game had less puzzles than the prequels while still giving some scary looking monster and that guy with the chainsaw.

Also, when I read this title I imagined "My name is Chris, but you can call me 'Chris the Zombie Killer'. Has nice ring to it, doesn't it?"

Reboots suck! Just continue the series. You can have big monsters and some monsters with guns, just in small, dark environments. That's what makes the games more interesting. RE4 did it perfectly, but I would love to see a mix of RE4 and old Resident Evil games.

I say go for it. It can't be worse then RE6 that is for sure.

Well, there were SOME stages in RE6 that were kind of short in quicktime button pressing events -- mainly the first two or three in Leon's story -- so actually, it CAN be worse. (Not a whole lot, but still...)

Well I guess if they can reboot DmC then why not. It would be interesting to see them take a different approach to it. I guess DmC is only good for the visuals than story. But it would interesting to see. Or Capcom is running out of ideas and they keep running back to the more popular franchises. I guess you can call RE popular.

It's not? I must've picked the wrong one. Didn't they have a RE Origins in HD at one point in time. I guess that was just a HD update. My mistake. Oh well...

There's no Resident Evil reboot yet. Re: Revelations took place in between RE 5 and 6. RE Origins in HD? I know about RE Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles getting a HD makeover for PS3 with Move Support.

There was nothing wrong with the Devil May Cry series before they decided to reboot it. Terrible decision on their part.

However, looking at how badly RE6 did, I'm all for it. It's better than cleaning up that trainwreck.

Over 3 and a half million sold in 4 months is bad?

As for reboots, I wouldn't mind it if it went back to the early games, 4 and beyond just weren't the same, especially since they killed Umbrella off inbetween 3 and 4 off screen. The whole franchise was about taking them down and suddenly they're gone and now we get plaga stuff instead of zombies. Felt very cheap. Plus with the arguable 'final villain' dead, the series kind of just feels forced at this point. Right now it's just the heroes fighting random companies who use bio weapons, rather than main threats like Wesker and Umbrella, and how everything related back to them throughout the games like the leeches, Veronica virus, and all that. All that magic is gone ever since 4 arrived. Though I will admit it was nice to see Sherry again all grown up in 6 and what happened to her.
