I'd rather buy $20 in BK tacos.

Maybe.

Good deal though. ^__^

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

I want carne asada tacos now ):

Does this game contain one of those online codes that can be used only once? If it does then I could buy it now and tacos could wait.

I've been wanting to play this as a co-op game, so I'm glad it's finally dropped to a price suitable for picking up two copies.

I'd rather bite, chew, swallow, and digest the plastic RE6 game disc and case. My b-hole would end up bleeding just the same as BK tacos.

Just a friendly piece of advice:

Even if this game is given to you for free, it is not worth the time you spend playing it.

Man does this game invite some hyperbole. I wish people with more moderate opinions would jump in, because non-poetic hyperbole is not very interesting to read.

I really enjoyed the game. Lots of variety, good set pieces, some replaybility and improved controls to accommodate the action (not so tankish). Not perfect for sure and certainly not survival horror, but a fun romp if you know what you're getting in to. My biggest annoyances revolved around the more video gamey aspects (collect these keycards, qte overload) but it's not nearly as distracting as folks would have you believe. Better than RE5 imo.

Thank you for making this thread complete.

I am pondering if I should wait for a better deal... backlog getting depleted.

And really it isn't a bad game by any means, there's just a few rather poor design choices that were made that hinder enjoyment some. For example, someone really just didn't understand how to use quicktime events at all- there are just so many, and many of those seem to be there to be there, without any sense as to why (which interrupts the flow of the game). They also reworked the health and item systems in such a way that feels less intuitive than what they had in 5, and it seems like there are too many cheap hits. Once hit and you're in a dying state, recovery is hindered due to how the gameplay system is in 6.

On the other hand, I do like the story and the controls work very well- in fact, I'm finally getting myself to finish Leon's campaign after 4 months and it doesn't seem so horrible to me outside the faults I mentioned before.

Incoming RE: Gold Edition w/Move Support!

Also I think there will be a Dragons Dogma bundle coming soon too. Saw a listing on Amazon.

Leon campaign is worth it for $20, the other 3 are ok though but some of these chapters drag on and on

It's not that bad but it is struggling

good luck on not getting a chipped disc


I've been a subscriber to Gamefly for years and whenever I receive a chipped disc this what I do. Although, I can only think of about four or five times out of about 40 purchases this has happened.

Receive chipped disc.
Rent same game from Gamefly.
Put chipped disc in envelope.
Report rental as not working.

I see it as returning my screwed up copy for a working one since it's the same company.

RE 6 is by no means a bad game, it just not as great as the other RE games and focuses too much on action rather than horror. Leons campaign is right up there with the best of RE, but the other campaigns are kinda...meh. I could see a lot of peeps liking it though. $20 is a good price unless u can hold out for the enhanced edition that is inevitable.

It's featured in Best Buy's ad. No need to contact them, they'll price match. And I don't really see the need for another thread. It was posted by litepink 5 days ago.

Unless ur going to play with a friend i cant recommend it. To be honest the game would have been a pretty awesome single player game if you werent stuck with a partner all the way thru with the exception of Ada's campaign which is actually pretty tense and old school RE from what i've played.

Your pretty much solo unless you choose to partner up either online or locally and it has some puzzles but the game is mostly a coop action game, with some crappy pacing and a small field of view

an RE6 gold edition is likely to be inevitable considering capcom has been busting out DLC for it and the pc version that has an "exclusive" new mode

I was really pumped for this game, bought the archives edition and all. Then when I played it, I liked Leon's campaign at first, but it just came to the point of recovery was a hassle rather than fun.

I have yet to try the other campaigns and it has been sitting on my backlog shelf since release. Some day I might go back to it.
