Leon Rules End Of Also Are People Suprised That Leon Is The Centre Of This Game Cause He Was In RE 2 i.e Raccoon City.
At Least There's Still Some True RE Fans Out There, They are the ones Keeping This Great Franchise Going
Essentially, it's the MGS2 issue for me. The game was shown, initially, very much from the stand point of the Tanker mission. Then BAM! whining man child appears and Snake is a support character. It's the opposite way round here. Leon is being featured too heavily for someone whose no more than a check point.
And no, it's not because it's Leon. If it was any of the big three RE character's I'd have an issue with it. Jill is the only one likely to show up in this game, most likely in a shrininking mini-skirt and tighter boob tube. Chris, in theory, won't be there...but this an AU game, so Muscle McGee could be throwing cars at you as a sub boss too. And if we get a bunch of trailers with those two and split second shots of the four playable chracters, you can bet I'll be pissing and moaning about them too.
First...are we really going to split hairs about whether it's 2 seconds or 5 or 6? It's still a ridiculously inane ammount of time.
And out of place? in one of the worst trailers Capcom have ever produced? It's not as if the standard had been high from preceeding 65 or so seconds.
How can you possibly make comments about what he should or shouldn't be given in the trailer? Considering that we have one 72 second trailer and a few magazine previews, to say he's no more than a check point is a blind statement to be making surely?
The ammount of time Leon of there is small. It's still significantly more than any of the playable characters.
Out of place isn't the right way to describe it, now that I'm thinking about it. Of course Leon has a place in the trailer and campaign. I simply feel Capcom has, up to this point, focused a touch too heavily on him.
And yes, it's true. It's entirely possible that Leon could be a vital character, vastly more important to the plot than the characters you play..which would really, really suck but that's pretty unlikely. As it stands now, given the information we have, he's simply someone you shoot. In theory he's no more than a prettier zombie with a gun. He may well end up being more, but that's how it seems now. I mean, really, what other role can he play? He's simply not important at this point of the story.
The game is set during the events of Resident Evil 2. Resident Evil 2 is said to have been a major inspiration for this game. Leon stars in Resident Evil 2.
Seriously people. Get over it and move on.
Of all the things to legitimately complain about regarding this game, people are the most bent out of shape about the presence of Leon. Really? You can freaking kill him, for crying out loud.
You all should be dancing and singing, showering Capcom with praises from the mountaintops.

Had it been the other way around, and rather than USS troops you had STARS members going through the City, and the last two seconds were of Wesker. Would you consider Wesker to be a mere footnote?
Then people would complain that Capcom is screwing up the canon even more since Wesker wasn't in Raccoon City during the events of RE2/3.
Do you honestly think that would do any good? Ha ha.
now I feel nothing but a shame that he is from same country as I am....thanatosi ses debil (czech language)

I do hope this has a retail release at one point or another, I'm already a bit sad that the RE Selection will only be a digital release but I'll probably get the Japanese hard copy just put in my collection. Mr.X looks pretty badass.

Damn you all for making this thread so damn entertaining with your bickering. I burnt my popcorn chicken and popcorn chicken is fucking awesome!
See Stu is making friends by the day. One day your going to offended the wrong guy and wake up with your dogs apputated head in your bed.
Agreed about Mr X looking badass. I thought the same thing from the glances in the trailer. Not much talk about the return of zombies either. Thought there would be alot of people hyped about that but dont think I've seen anyone mention them yet.
Was thinking about this more today and I'm really quite looking for to it. I just hope the developers strive to make a really good game out of it and not a cheap cash in just to sell units. That said they've done their homework and seeing things like the Resident Evil 3 petrol station and Mr. X tell me they aren't just phoning this game in.
Now Outbreak 1 + 2 as XBLA and PSN titles, with a bonus File 3 with the scenario's we never got and I think we'd have a good Raccoon City fix again.
