Resi 6 Plot review and discussion , with parody! *Spoilers*

#1Kairi_LiPosted 11/16/2012 1:11:01 AM
While my husband and I enjoyed co - oping Resi 6 and had a good time, the story wasn't the level we were hoping it to be, not even to the usual classic RE standards.

So we decided to discuss this element in the game via video!

If you are pressed for time, here's a short video that sums up our feelings of the story:

And below is a full written review on the game itself, gameplay and all.

Feel free to discuss, or comment on the blog!

Interesting video, but a lot of RE6s backgrounds are found in files just like the previous games. Jakes mother, Carla and Simmons, etc. Pretty sure they also touched base on the fact that the US Government used Umbrella as a scape goat despite the fact that key members of the government were involved in umbrella and not ignorant to what they were doing. Also not sure whether the news coverage included the fact that the virus in Raccoon city was used in the creation of B.O.Ws as opposed to being a contagious pandemic that annihilated the city and threatened to spread. This also ties into the fact that Umbrella wasn't an aimless organization existing just to screw stuff up, they dealt with governments in efforts to supply military needs. they just accidentally screwed stuff up.

I do agree with Sherry and the Hong Kong aftermath, neither really got the attention they deserved considering their significance to the story and series, and Carla just seemed to go off her rocker after Simmons experiment. A lot of what's happening mimics real world fears about nuclear and chemical weapons falling into the wrong hands. The aftermath of Umbrellas downfall led to many other companies who weren't already in the pocket of a government acquiring research and data, opening the doors for more potential clients. When the Soviet Union fell, and when any nuclear armed country falls, one of the main fears is what happens to these deadly weapons in the aftermath. RE showcases a worst case scenario.

On a less serious note, I did lol at the gradual progression of explosions in the series lol

We were aware of the notes you can unlock, the problem was that in the older games, the documents complemented the story, not essential. It would have been nice to hear some of the back stories of the characters and other elements being SHOWN rather than TOLD through a bunch of unlockable text.

Also, the CG films like Degeneration had given me the impression alot of people are aware of the B.O.W element, but its hard to say, I personally feel with potential survivors and the age of the internet, news would have spread across the globe to the point that an announcement by the president isn't gonna exactly be the shock horror news that Simmons keeps implying it to be, that it would ROCK the world and political order would collapse.

Ah well, I do understand where you're coming from though, so I do not entirely disagree. I just wish the game tried harder in demonstrating those points, as oppose to making us players speculate.

I'm just wondering, is your ethnicity Asian? Since your username implies that but your real name doesn't.

Yeah, I'm Chinese, original from Hong Kong, but have moved to LA, and married to that blonde guy you see in the above video talking, Lucas.

I agree with the first point, Simmons probably would have gone on a 20 minute liquid snake speech if he was going to explain everything lol, but they never really touched that deeply into his background or Carlas.

It does seem like people are aware of BOWs, it's been a while since I played Leons campaign but I imagine the President announcing the truth of Raccoon City meant admitting several members of the Government were also involved in what happened and the resulting cover up. Simmons was a high ranking government official who collected data on the BOWs then pushed to have the city destroyed when he was finished, the way he seemed to think the US government would lose credibility if the truth came out makes me think the President was going to come clean about the link between the government and Umbrella.

Heh, and just when I think theres no way to make the game worse, the idea of Simmons making a MGS 20 min long speech is now ingrained in my head. :P

I like hammy rants. It would be what I'd do if I ever was a pompous villian.
