Capcom didn't pay off reviewers for RE6, but they did for DmC...?

Contrary to the fact that I think, based on the demo, that RE6 is pretty decent.. it still doesnt 't make sense that Capcom wouldn't pay off reviewers for its biggest franchis...

the antis are just jealous that their old series is dead and theyre having a hissy fit about it

They never had to worry about RE6 not getting 9s. They do have to worry about this one since the fanbase isn't as big to pick up the slacking sales.

It's sad that the best thing to come out of Capcom recently is a fan made game

It's always a bit suspicious when a game gets a high rating from some place, weeks before the other reviews start pouring out.

Not saying it's a sure thing. Personally, I hate all of the conspiracy theories gamers come up with now-a-days, but there is definite evidence: Sonic '06 for one. That game's first review was a 9 from some obscure magazine source a while before it came out. Famitsu, GameInformer, and IGN all admit to tailoring their scores to the audience. I'm not sure if that's the same thing as being payed off, but it's likely there are places that do get payed for an early review, or vice versa, with a complimentary score. After all, having the privilege of having the first review of a highly buzzed about game may boost magazine sales!

It's not like we didn't see that coming though.
Even from the trailers and gameplay videos, we all knew the story was going to be bad.
The story of the series had been heading in a bad direction for some time now.

The series was going in a bad direction as soon as Mr. Mikami left.

Cause Resident Evil has more than double the fans that DMC had and it's not like RE6 was a reboot that enraged fans. They were more worried about this being shown to get a higher score than they were about RE6 because many people would buy that game regardless unlike this.

....I don't think I said it was?
I was just saying the story had been going in a bad direction for a while prior to RE6.
