Default PRESIDENT... EVIL. SIXXXXXX (....6....6)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BmC1lZeQad4&hd=1

The best Resident Evil protagonist is back and he brought Chris and Dante with him. Apparently those bloody limeys interpretation of his games has negatively effected Dante's health, causing him to lose his hair and a bunch of weight, but he can still do ridiculous shit. But he scored himself a lovely lady friend, so that's nice.

I'm gonna be that guy and say I don't much care for Leon. Jill's better.

Still looking forward to this, though.

I am super excited for this and I don't care who knows it! Leon equals good Resident Evil! (What Game Boy Color game? I don't know what you're talking about.)

I wonder what the cutscene-to-fun ratio'll be!

Leon's no Claire, but I'll take it. Looks like we're gonna have yet another female newbie who we'll never ever see again. Also, I'm glad this is coming out so I don't have to buy a third copy of RE5.

... I still own one of the other two copies.

Leons no Claire, and neither of them are Hunk or Tofu.

I just realized Leon has a bit of stubble. Now I'm trying to imagine Leon with a beard-mustache combo.

Uh, holy shit. I kind of want the Leon-in-ruined-city game more than Chris-in-China game and new-guy-jumping-around game but whatever. Day one.

Was that Ashley in the trailer? I don't know if I will be able to put up with her screaming "HAAAAAAALP!" for very long.

Okay, so from what I can tell from the trailer there are three protagonists:

Leon
Chris
Blond Mercenary voiced by Troy Baker (who seems to be working with Ashley of all people)

Odd to not see Jill in the Chris segments, but we haven't seen much of the game yet.

I know some people are going to flip their shit over the apparent cover system and enemies with guns, but I could care less. This looks incredible.

To be fair, RE5 had a few context sensitive cover spots once the Virus-mix-o-rama guys got guns.

I was excited until I saw Chris lunge to take cover behind a chest high wall. I liked 5 but it went too far in the action direction, and I'll be way less interested if this one tries to take it further.

The article on 1up also mentions that both Leon and Chris have NPC partners. Why are you recycling the worst parts of RE5, Capcom?

I want to say that I don't think NPC characters are inherently bad, but RE5's were largely atrocious. Revelations is taking that concept in a better direction, it seems.

Is Leon's voice actor the guy from RE4? This is important.

It's always seemed pretty obvious to me that Resident Evil has become more action oriented with each passing game. RE2 more than tripled enemy count and ammo. RE3 added things like explosive barrels. Code Veronica added the first person weapon. RE4 changed the camera to accommodate the much more action heavy gameplay. RE5 expanded on that.

To me, adding a cover system and enemies that shoot is just the next step.

What I'm really excited about, is that this seems to have the most robust cast of any RE game, which until now have almost never had more than two or three recurring characters per game.

I honestly couldn't tell. He sounded kinda gruff to me in places.

Hunnigan and Ashley sounded the same to me. It would shock me if it wasn't the same guy. Chris was obviously the same too.

It's been a while since he played the role (Degeneration and before that RE4). So he may have added some nuances to it.

I'm not sure how to feel about this. RE4 is one of my favorite games of the last decade, but I didn't get into RE5 at all.

I kinda wish Capcom would just sell the parts of RE6 where you play as Leon online for 20 bucks.

If this is a game of two halves, where Chris's citywide infection fight in China is the more actioney portion, leaving Leon's Raccoon City-esque escapade in Tall Oaks a bit more on the survival horror side? That sounds perfect.

That ex-merc guy is an odd one, though. I can't imagine, if his blood is apparently so valuable to the world, that he's unrelated to the main overarching plot. A lot of people are pointing to the valuable blood thing as meaning he's Alex Wesker, others are pointing to the ex-merc thing meaning he's Hunk - and some people continue to insist that the two are one and the same.

A third segment has you plodding around as an obese purple cat with a fishing pole.
