  • fixmanfoxman

    should i get this game

    • KingOptimusOrigins111

      No, save your money for AC3, Borderlands 2, or Far Cry 3. Anything better than this game.

      • fixmanfoxman

        i already own borderlands 2 and ac3 and getting farcry 4 sure

    • Rezar

      Yes when the price goes down. It’s not worth $60.

  • AzuNo17

    And thus the mod community waits anxiously…

    • uhawww

      To be honest, RE6 could be brought up to a respectable level with a few design and UI mods, however the core of the game might be beyond even modder rescue.

      • AzuNo17

        If you mean HUD. ( I honestly don’t know the difference ) it was fine. I removed that so I can enjoy the cinematics. The game was pretty easy to not care about ammo personally. But yeah, the core of the game will be hard to modify for the better ( aside from laughs and giggles of swapping 3D models left and right)

        • DrForbidden

          Well, the only mods the majority of players will care about are the nude skins for characters…

    Stopped reading at “download”…

    Best 2012 shooter, 5 millions sold, haters gonna hate, fans that bought (and played the demo BEFORE to decide) will enjoy more and more.

  • KingOptimusOrigins111

    Whats the point the game sucks anyway.

  • PrinceHeir

    i’ll wait for Gold Edition before buying any of the DLC’s

    though would rather have a full fledged Mercenaries game like in the 3DS with refine RE6 mechanics(slide, roll, change aim etc.), a combo system(instead of just counters you reward players by shooting on head then combo to knee or melee them etc)

    all characters from RE0-RE6 plus Outbreak 1 and 2, Code Veronica and Operation Raccoon City!

    They are making PC players wait an unreasonably long time for this game.
