Those must be some good drugs if you think Capcom's flagships series is going to hit $10 anytime soon.

MSRP won't drop to $39.99 anytime soon but you expect it to hit $10?

Where?


i know right, it is funny how all these posters come in and say this game will drop to $10 soon, or that game will drop to $10 dollar soon, LOL

really lol? the reason i said it could drop even lower than 18 is because the game isn't that good? did you see the reviews? and i did play it on xbox360 so i know the game isn't that good it needed more polish

with a lot of AAA titles coming out in next few months what makes you think a core gamer will pay 40 for this when they can get borderlands2,AC3,halo4,COD?

you guys must be big RE fans or capcom fans. and thing with gamefly i rather have them make money than the greedy bastards at capcom who think their way of doing business is the right way. I rather pay gamestop 54.99 for RE6 than capcom for a new game.(yes i do hate capcom)

in next 2-3 months this game will be on many sales for under 20 and maybe under 15.

Nope I just have spent a lot of time following video game prices and just because a lot of people didn't enjoy this game (and a lot of the bad reviews weren't just based on bad gameplay) doesn't mean the price is going to drop like a rock.

Capcom is not Ubisoft. They don't abandon ship because a game doesn't sell well.

You said below 10 in your previous post. If the price is not going to be below 20 for 2-3 months, that makes it a great deal at 17.99 tomorrow.

only way ORC drops even close to that low is if they release a Gold edition.

Reviews suck and I feel bad for anyone who lives and buys games by them. Take ORC for what it is: not canon and a fun way to play through some hectic Raccoon City zombie-infested run-and-gun. I highly recommend playing with friends only though, single player can be dreadful with dumb AI.


I think too many people went into this game with higher expectations on name alone and forgot to look at the developer. I paid $28.xx at the Target mistake for the LE and it is worth every penny, but I'm a RE junkie.


Bottom line: have a few drinks, chill out, and shoot some zombies. Mostly any game is worth at least $15, let alone a major named-title.

You are right; the game is best played with friends and it isn't a sprint. Explore, find hidden items, shoot the cameras, level up, etc.

Tomorrow's DOTD is in the Home Theater, Computing, and Cameras categories. Don't see Gaming listed, so RE:ORC might not happen or it will end up on the "Today Only" deal page instead.

Even Famitsu, who has been very liberal and generous with their high score ratings these past few years, gave RE: ORC a 7/7/8/6, which is not really good at all.

Metacritics has a rating of 52 for the game.

is resident evil ORC worth even 18? i feel like it will be below 10 pretty soon. with a lot of games coming out ORC will be forgotten


I'd say it's probably worth the $18 if you can enjoy it for what it is and overlook its faults. I got the collector's edition for $35 when Target accidentally clearanced it, and I think I've probably gotten enough enjoyment out of it. The campaign is short (although there's a whole second DLC campaign that I actually thought was better than the on-disc campaign, but it'll cost you another $20). Online deathmatch is pretty fun and challenging.

It IS really flawed, though. Horrible hit detection (your bullets will bounce off of things that aren't even close to being in your way, enemies will be sticking half out of cover but still invincible while they sometimes hit you when you're in full cover, etc). Friendly AI is ridiculous. In the end, they're just bullet sponges you use to draw enemy fire because they're useless for anything else... Although some of my fondest memories of the game involve me standing there watching a teammate walk right straight into an obvious trip mine and go flying...or, the best, watching my teammate (in a room with no enemies, mind you), walk right through a pile of flaming debris and run around the room flailing while on fire.

^ That may be their official response but it hasn't been accurate. If you wait until 5AM CST for many of these gaming DOTD shipping will no longer be an option.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.
