Resident Evil 6 Release Date: 11/20/12

Resident Evil 6 Release Date

Capcom is really on the roll this year as they will be releasing two new Resident Evil games in the same year. We also have the little brother, Resident Evil: Revelations, which just came out with a bit of a spelling problem in its cover :) The positive feedback gained from Resident Evil: Revelations helps enure the expansion of this intense game series.

Before continuing, I want to clear up a common misunderstanding.  Some people are mistaking Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City as Resident Evil 6. These are separate games. Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is a standalone title. Although it was pointed out in the plot that the game is set during the events in Resident Evil 2 and 3, there is not much emphasis given on the storyline (the game is advertised as a fast-paced shooting game). Don’t get me wrong, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has a story, but plot is not its selling point. It’s more of a “gunning down hordes of zombies” sort of thing. On the other hand, Resident Evil 6 is the direct sequel of Resident 5.

Now that I’ve cleared that up, just a little taste of what Resident Evil 6 will have to offer. The action takes place in the Antarctic Umbrella facility where the Wesker Children Project took place. The year is 2013, and the President is going to reveal what happened during the Raccoon City Destruction Incident. The game starts as you wake up in a hidden laboratory with complete amnesia. Even with no memory, you soon come to realize that a bio-hazard incident has occurred in the facility. No place is safe anymore thanks to good-for-nothing bio-terrorists. Dead Ones, Conkers, and Sentients try to take you down, and it’s up to you to put a stop to their wrong doing and save the world and humanity. Just like Resident Evil 5 and Operation Raccoon City, Resident Evil 6 will be a horror-filled, fast-paced shooting game. Expect this game to be as scary as the previous Resident Evil titles, and look forward to a lot of interesting challenges, improved graphics, and kick-butt weapons.

There is not much detail about the game modes in Resident Evil 6, but the possibility of having online play and cooperative mode is very likely when you look at the offerings of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. The game is set to release on November 20, 2012 for the PS3 and Xbox 360. Microsoft Windows will have to wait as there’s no specific date mentioned yet.

First Look At Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers

Tom Clancy

Hello there TPS fans! Are you running out of shooter games to play? Are you getting tired of shooters taking place in the modern day period or shooters that take place in a World War II setting? Frankly, I’m tired of shooters simulating the events that just happened recently, like the war against Iraq. Why don’t game publishers step up and think of something new and fresh? All right — now that my rant is over, there is actually a shooting game that is on my radar and at first blush looks like a total winner: Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers was initially titled as Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon 4 (it’s actually the 4th game in the series if you exclude the expansions) and was going to be released in March 2012. However, Ubisoft is delaying the release until May in order to fine tune the game. For those who are not familiar with the series, it is a third-person shooter game. Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers takes place in a futuristic setting of Russia which is currently engaged in a grueling war. The entire mission includes visiting places such as Pakistan, Zambia, Russia and Norway. The Ghosts will be deployed in different missions in order to defeat and neutralize the ultra-nationalist force that took over Russia and are currently invading neighboring countries.

Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers is mostly a third-person shooter, but some instances (such as shooting with the aim sight) require the player to switch to first-person for more accurate targeting and aiming. The player will have to control four Ghosts with different expertise — a sniper weapon expert, a commando, a Ghost lead, and a reconnaissance expert. You will have to be strategic with the positioning of your Ghosts so that you will succeed in your missions. In my opinion, strategic shooters are best and offer a challenge to serious gamers, as opposed to shooters that any button-masher can master.

Since the game is set in the future, you will be armed with some amazing futuristic weaponry and equipment. My favorite is “optical camouflage” which will basically allow your Ghosts to become invisible. Optical camouflage will be extremely limited so that players will not be able to rely heavily on the tech to accomplish missions. The optical camouflage is designed to automatically turn off if the Ghosts move too fast, fire weapons, or are being shot. I have to mention another neat feature of the game that I like — Gunsmith. With Gunsmith, you can customize your weapons. The customization is very deep as it includes tweaking every part of the gun. Good news for Xbox 360 users, as the game allows the use of the Kinect. Customization will be done through hand gestures and even voice commands.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldiers is set to release in May 2012. The game will be coming to PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows. Look for it at your favorite game store — the future is now!
