I should probably finish the demo to make sure, but for all the stuff they took from RE4 why didn't they bother taking the inventory system? That sounds disappointing.

It is a BIG surprise.

8 fucking year=/4/5years.

That's fucking ridiculous. That's not what it's been like before at all you faghat. Capcom has never taken that long with anything. They're not fucking Valve.

And if they just shit out another game like Re5 then it won't be worth anything. They spent 4 1/2 years on 5 and all it turned out to be was a ripoff of Re4 in almost every way with prettier graphics, less personality, and more frustrating scernarios and less memorable encounters.

But there's no way it hell it will take that long anyway. They're not going to have one of their biggest earners out of the limelight for that long.

Because they have to manufacture "tension" however they can to try and keep some "survival horror" somewhere in there.

The idea of a tiny inventory that doesn't pause the game put me off getting it, and I don't know enough about the story for that to make me want to get it.

The story isn't much of anything tbh. It's probably not a big selling point.

I'd also like to point out that the game is nowhere near as long as Re4, and one of the boss battles is an outright pain in the ass. It's not fun at all, the foe you face is a direct ripoff from one in Re4.

For what it was worth, I enjoyed the game despite its imperfections. :3 I've already beaten it twice now and almost a third time. I plan on doing professional when I'm not so burned out on it.

Oh yeah, the game is definitely fun. Moreso with a friend. My brother and I have beaten it at least four times, and played the hell out of mercs.

Bring something with infinite ammo, and do your best not to get hit. At all. Cuz you'll die almost immediately. I've been using the Hydra and Sig P226 with Sheva's Longbow for my main weapons. I've got Chris decked out with the Jail Breaker and gatling gun for support.

I'd also suggest investing in proximity mines, they're really helpful with a lot of the encounters. The rest of my inventory slots are filled with first aid spray. I've also memorized the locations of spawn points and shit, in preparation for the more difficult parts, like when everyone has guns.

That makes the game manageable on pro for me.

I tried playing with Sheva's AI the first day it came out, but I learned my lesson the hard way. Co-op is the way to go.

Yeah, I know. I've already unlocked a boatload of weapons. Got the shotgun, machine gun and pistol with unlimited ammo. Those are my favorites, but I want to unlock the rocket launcher with infinite ammo as well. I started playing professional the morning we beat vet, but learned that you die in about one hit. I'm just not ready to deal with the anticipated frustration, obviously.

Ehh, I would have to open up the bonus crap on the game to tell you which ones they are, but I'm all the way in my bedroom and the 360 is out in the living room. :3 I'll do it later.

Keep your fucking panties on Dacon, Jesus. They said it COULD, not that it definitively would. Hell, RE5 COULD have taken longer than it did if shit went bad, but it didn't. They even said that they hope it would only take 4 which is the usual time they have been. Meaning THATS the time frame they'd want and shoot for. Don't get an aneurysm at them being pessimistic at the development process. It's not set in stone.

Make like Leon and chillax a bit.

And holy shit at how hard RE5 is at the Professional level. I fucking hate that shit. I still am only half way through RE4 on Professional and its just kicking my ass. I fucking HATE that water room in the castle where all the fucking Ganado monks just come at you from the stairs and rooms and just...ugh.

Stop being a dick faggot. I already know all that. I EVEN SAID IT IN MY GODDAMN POST.

You're just pissing me off now.

Ganados didn't have fucking guns. Pro on Re4 was easy. It's about the same level of difficulty of veteran on Re5.

Negative Nancy angry already?

You're still vomitting rage at the prospect of extra time. I'm just saying that risk is with any game and they just stated the truth. Don't worry about it. RE6 will more than likely come on time.

And fuck you. Pro was not easy. Maybe you're a RE4 master but I sadly cannot just evade every single fucking shot from crossbows and maces and I get killed in two shots and shit. I can only imagine what RE5 will be like.

Dude, I'm not "vomiting rage" you're just being a dickhead and pissing me off. I'm disappointed at the prospect of them taking 8 fucking years on a game, but I realize it's not set in stone. I don't need you flaunting your pompous attitude calling yourself telling me how it is. I get it, you like everything, and nothing bothers you. Good for you faggot.

You must suck at the game. Re4 on pro is just Re4 with enemies that have more health and cause a little more damage. Using the vest makes their attacks easier to deal with too.

I just tried the section of the demo I didn't do before, Shanty Town, but didn't finish it because Sheva died. Maybe that was my fault for running into a corner with a chainsaw guy chasing me, but she could have ran away

I think I might need another pad and someone to play it with.
