Obviously, I'm just guessing here, but I have a sense this will be a free GwG eventually.  They will never give Minecraft away for free; it sells too well.  And this is the only other game of a similar genre.  It has been on sale very recently.  It's kind of grindy to max out which seems to fit some of the other GwG (Battleblock, Charlie Murder, Gotham, etc.) and will keep people on their Xboxes.  Again, just a guess.

I bought Final Fantasy XIII-2 boxed for 10 Euros today. With this, Final Fantasy officially joins my list on the 360 where I bought multiple games without even playing much (or at all) the previous game(s). In this list we've got Assassin's Creed (been stuck on Brotherhood for many months now but I already bought Revelations and III), Bioshock (haven't finished 1st yet because I didn't really love the gameplay but I ended up buying 2 and Infinite anyway), Hitman (bought every game on the 360, 4 to be precise, and I haven't started a single one albeit I played 1 and 2 on PC already), Far Cry (I played 3 and Blood Dragon so I bought all other episodes on 360, 3 of them, but did not touch them), Call Of Juarez (2 games, one barely touched and one not at all), Fable (only played bits of Fable 2 and Heroes, but for some reason I've got 3 and The Journey in my backlog too), LEGO (2 games, barely even touched one), Serious Sam (only seriously played one on 360 but I bought the other 3 anyway), and now Final Fantasy, where XIII is still unopened but I already bought XIII-2.

 

One day they're going to name a disease based on us CAGs. Mark my words.

Have you actually played Resident Evil 6? The story in 6 is way, way stupider and more off the rails than part 4. It's probably the worst story of any story-intensive game I have ever played, which I say without a hint of hyperbole.

+1 Resident Evil 6 is the last game I played purely for the story achievements back in May 2013. It passed the point of "funny cause it's bad" and was just a complete slog. NEVER AGAIN. Not wasting my times playing crappy games for achievements; I play to have fun, my time is worth so much more now.

 

Thankfully, I have fond memories of RE1 and RE4. I wonder if those who can't get into RE4 in today's age, missed the boat a bit? It was perhaps a game that needed to be played in it's time as it just hasn't aged well. Those games are 10 and 20 years old practically.........

I'd say for anyone who hasn't played it yet and has been thinking about it, RE4 at this price is a must buy. We're talking about literally one of the best games ever made. The controls are a bit weird, but after I got used to them (which didn't take long) it never hindered the experience. It's got a ton of content and the story alone can easily be 20+ hours. It's an absolute no brainer at $6.xx in my opinion.

What country do you live in? XIII-2 would be like $10 USD in the US. It's pretty shitty that companies would charge the same in euros or pounds.

But the evil  Fuck still haven't put Mass Effect 3 DLC on sale.

I'm not one to cry foul over DLC or preorder bonuses in general, but it is funny to me that they're hawking the preorder bonuses before ANYTHING is known about the game other than its title. Like, is the fact that we get to "siege Fort De Sable" supposed to be meaningful given that we don't have any story context yet including where or when the game takes place or even who the main character is.

I hope they're going to finally make Ezio's Outhouse available as a DLC....

Nor does 4 have nothing to do with the previous games (now that's hyperbole). It doesn't revolve around Umbrella (good!) but does star Leon. Branching the story off in a new direction is a far cry from not relating to the existing story.

 

Agreed with others saying that RE4 has poor controls. Back when it actually came out on Gamecube and Playstation 2 though, those controls were still somewhat acceptable.

Somewhat acceptable? RE4's controls were loved by everyone. RE4 and Kill Switch quite literally revolutionized they way we play third person games.

Thanks.

Never played Lost Planet. If you like anime you might find it interesting, since i'm not, i felt the battles too repetitive since basically you just mash; it is worth noting that storywise is pretty entertaining and kind of emotional but the true ending is on the DLC. Terraria as has been stated before, has been on sale a lot of times lately so it might end up being a GwG.

Yes but having to use the left thumbstick to aim on the remastered version is completely unacceptable. The definitive version of RE4 is on the wii.

It seems we played different games :joystick:   RE saga was at a standstill and needed an stimulus. RE4 brought it, with a new control scheme, enhanced graphics and animations. Even though all the changes the game held the essence of previous iterations. I've played them all since the first one on a playstation and RE4 still gave me the same feeling despite the big differences on playability. Of course Capcom perverted it and jumped into the mainstream wagon after that.  Story wise, the game is as ludicrous as every other iteration, but i enjoyed it pretty much, maybe cos i'm spanish and lol'd about it :rofl: And maybe i'm a poor gamer but i found myself dealing with low ammo lots of times, especially on professional difficulty. Still... opinions...

Honestly, it does feel like we played different games.  I guess that if you truly played all the other games in the series and still got the same feeling from it, and still had ammo problems, then I can't really argue with your personal experience playing the game.

 

But you still can't describe it as a game in which you have to "spend your resources wisely."  It's just a matter of aiming and shooting well enough to not run out of ammo.  Unlike previous games in the series, there are no choices as to how to approach a given situation.  There's no deciding if you should shoot this enemy and use up ammo, or run past it and risk getting hit.  There's no deciding if you should pick up this item and use a precious inventory spot or leave it where it is, but not have that extra health when you really need it.  There's no deciding if you should take this route because there are some herbs you need, but also some enemies that might damage you, or that route which is safer but doesn't have any reward for successfully taking it.

 

In RE4, there is always only one path forward and only one correct strategy: kill every enemy in the room and pick up every item you find (unless you're out of inventory space because ammo and health items are so abundant).  Pretty much every new game in the series since has followed a similar formula.

 

Have you actually played Resident Evil 6? The story in 6 is way, way stupider and moe off the rails than part 4. It's probably the worst story of any story-intensive game I have ever played, which I say without a hint of hyperbole.

Yes, I have actually played RE6.  I'll admit that there were some totally ridiculous parts to it, but I actually really liked a lot of the story.  Either way, it's still better than RE4, whose premise was that Leon now works for the president and is being sent alone to a village in Spain to rescue his kidnapped daughter.  Are you a bad enough dude to rescue her?  But wait, there's also coincidentally some sort of biohazard outbreak here too, even though your current mission has nothing to do with the Raccoon City incident.  But don't worry, because there is a magical, immortal merchant that sells you shit and gives you prizes for shooting blue medallions, who goes wherever you're going but somehow always manages to get there first.  And that'll certainly come in handy when you're being chased through a castle by a giant animatronic midget statue.  Also, that magical teleporting merchant took the liberty of setting up shooting range games with cardboard cutouts of various RE4 characters and enemies, and he'll give Leon some neat-o bottlecaps to collect if he does well at them!

 

Also, saying that the story has nothing to do with the rest of the series is barely hyperbole.  Change the names of two characters and get rid of a few throwaway lines of dialogue, and you have yourself a brand new IP that is in no way recognizable as Resident Evil.  The few-hour-long Separate Ways mode, which was not in the original release of the game, had more to do with the rest of series and had a better storyline than the entirety of the main game.  Not revolving around Umbrella and branching off in a new direction was not a good thing when the current story arc that had been built up throughout the entire series had not been completed yet.  For years, the series had been building toward one obvious conclusion (the main characters all teaming up to take out Umbrella) and then RE4 just handwaves it all in the opening CG intro by casually stating that Umbrella is gone, six years have passed, and Leon has to save the president's daughter.

Hello stranger! 8-[  Valid points, still ammo becomes an issue if you go gun crazy, as any RE before it. And how the game manages inventory limits anyway the amount of items you can carry at any time, with that genius case where you can place and rotate your items to maximize your slots. Regarding the story, without underestimating your logical and good explanation, i loved it. It was like more intimate, without the forced twists here and there implying umbrella, no big conspiracy and much more important not worldwide (as every RE after it). It felt more like the story in RE1 before the script goes nuts and you had a mansion to explore and a mystery to resolve. Besides, located in a region of an imaginary 'deepest' Spain, where the 'infected' speak with mexican accent and even yell 'behind you!' when they attack your back... that's priceless to me  :rofl:
