Someone explain the Slant Six hate? I'm not sure where that's stemming from (ie what games they made that were shit) and I'm on my phone so doing the googling won't be a valid option atm

They've made 5 SOCOM games, 4 of them varying from average to abysmal. The last one, Tactical Strike, is the exception & plays like a RTS/TPS hybrid. Of course, the 3 Fireteam Bravo games being bad isn't their fault, it's just putting shooters on a handheld where aiming is handled by BUTTONS or a flimsy analog stick, is laughable.

Point still stands though, Slant Six isn't known for quality & not like Zipper could've done any better; 1 & 2 were the only worthwhile SOCOM games, the franchise has been on a jagged rockslide since.

Figured it was just angry game nerds as usual but wikipedia says they made SOCOM: Confrontation and a couple SOCOM psp games before this.

What a surprise, you have no personal experience with them so you call naysayers "nerds". You are aware you're on a video game site, correct? Do you go to KKK meetings & call everyone skinheads? =\

im just wondering if its going to be good or not.

Resident Evil hasn't been good since 4, hell it's not even the same franchise anymore =\

I will definitely be renting this one first. If I like it, I'll snag it down the road for $20 at most probably.

BTW, this game doesn't have split screen of any kind, so that was a major factor in my decision to hold off.

Oh man you're right.
Does amazon post your gaming credit anywhere? It's not under gift card balance :/


I don't think you can see it unless you add something to cart and see the credit in the payment options or the promo discount before submitting your order.

In regards to the game being made by slant six.... I agreed with that comment till June of last year. I got to play the game at E3 and Comic Con, and going into it was fearing the worst since it was made by Slant Six.... I was wrong. I hated the Socom game they made, and wanted nothing to do with this one. Long story short I probably played it 5 times total at e3, and loved every minute of it. It felt like a hybrid of Gears of War and Left 4 Dead. As far as the 4 player co op went, it was insane and never a moment when there was nothing to shoot at.


Sounds good. How is it compared to Mercenaries mode in RE4/5? I really enjoyed those and the 3DS game.

Not so, there is a way to see your GC balance as well as all your promotional balance. It is in an odd place to be sure.

Basically go to any MP3 Download such as this one. On the right side under where you can purchase the album you'll see "Redeem a gift card or promotion code & view balance". Simply click that and it'll show you what you have. But just so you know it breaks it down section by section. For example I have a general $10 credit on my account. The method I described shows me as having $10 in each category because the $10 I have can be used on anything amazon sells.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I'm a sucker for steelbooks, but I don't know about this game. Videos of it look "ok" but I don't think it's worth $60.

With Max Payne delayed until May, I guess I'll go for this then. I'll get it on the PS3 knowing that the online community will be bigger thanks to Japan's population on the PS3.

I wanna get this game but I don't wanna pay 60. At the same time, since it is a mostly MP type game, I don't wanna get burned by missing out on having people to play with by the time it drops.

You should probably wait for the Super Ultimate RE: Operation Racoon City Complete Edition with paid dlc that's locked out on the disc.

*notices the "Rayman Origins $19.99 w/ free shipping" topic right next to this one and wonders why CAGs are frothing at the mouth to pay $60 for this when it will be $20 in a few months anyway, especially for a Capcom game where saving $40 on the price of the disc will help offset the $90 worth of DLC Capcom has planned for day 1*

That's ludicrous, it should only be $50-$70 worth of content planned on day one. Unless of course, we are talking about color swapping palettes for $15 apiece. Wait, what about lots of adorable costumes and overpowered weapons on day two though? Don't forget how they'll leave off half of the play-modes on day three! This is gonna get pricey.

All their work on SOCOM games especially Confrontation. That was a MP only game that didn't work out of the box. Considering RE:OR is a MP focused game, I am concerned and I am not ordering it until I see reviews.

It's online-focused, so being there at the start (or at least early on) is a big deal to a lot of people.

I know this is CAG, but we are not all just seeking the cheapest prices months later or whatever, but rather the best deals when they are also desirable enough (depends on the individual). If there's a deal on a pre-order like this, then it's a favorable option for some of us.

I know that it isn't gameplay footage, but this Triple Impact trailer was quite droolworthy for me. :drool:

http://www.gametrail...ent-evil/725551

Too bad we can't just get an animated feature film or series just from this, I was thoroughly entertained, especially with the licker getting owned in the hallway, too badass.

I have seen the other trailers and it looks fairly interesting, so I went ahead and pre-ordered it. At least with Amazon you can change your mind down the line if you want, so hopefully we'll get some good in-depth previews to go by for some more confirmation. The multiplayer modes look quite...different. Hopefully they aren't just lame and horribly repetitive and underdeveloped. :-#
