Jake and Piers were both kinda meh, to me.

Still not as bad as what they did with Ada though. ****. That.

Remember when you were trying to tell me the game would be just fine and you would enjoy the new direction? wink

For a game's story that was supposed to be more Ada-centric (with her evil doppelganger and all), she herself came off surprisingly underwhelming for some reason. Usually my favorite female of the series, but there was something about her in 6 that was just... meh.

Renegade, maybe so I can understand more, humor me as to what was so awful about Piers. For the kind of soldier he was, he did perfectly fine in getting Chris back in shape and trying to keep him in line.

lol Well with 6 not having the same director as 5, can't blame him for having some hope for it beforehand/giving it the benefit of a doubt. Sadly though, RE5 being the only hiccup turned out too good to be true. 5 was a happy accident more than anything which they tried to replicate its success with 6, and is (unfortunately) still the most profitable game in the series sales-wise.

He seems so expendable. Like, Chris could have done that himself or taken pills, maybe. Piers character could have been replaced by pills. Nah, that's a minor issue. The biggest problem is how generic he is. He's the typical rookie soldier who feels more like a f*cking red shirt than anything else. He has no memorable dialogue and isn't that great.

What he did for Chris was great but he's so replaceable, as a character. Like I said, Jake could be an obnoxious ass but he was slick. He also carried importance. With Piers, I didn't get that vibe.

Him and Helena are my two least favorite, honestly. Although, I didn't mind Helena in the later portion of the Leon/Helena campaign. Her crazed sister was a cool entry into the plot as well, I thought.

I might like him a bit better if I give the game another go (I did beat it twice but not all that recently) but I don't think my position will alter drastically.

Agreed on this. Piers was meh. I absolutely hated Jake though. He did not live up to Wesker, and was not a worthy partner for someone as awesome as Sherry (who grew into a great new character).

Ada was pretty horrible too. I didn't like her new look either. She was drop dead gorgeous in 4 though.

Does anyone here like Gun Survivor?

Just saying, because that was IMO the worst RE game ever made that came in color.

I hated both the plot and the execution of it. Leon and Ada was something I wanted to see work out in the end, but ****ing Capcom...

I didn't think much of Sherry either, but that's me.

I remember seeing stuff for Dead Aim Suppose to have been the best game in those Survivors series.

Dead Aim, from what I've been told, was good. I never got a copy though, because while I like gun games and I like RE, I've not seen them mix well. Gun Survivor, with its pulled lightgun support and shoddy graphics and story, was horribad. Gun Survivor 2 was just a what-if CV tie-in.

With how often they played up the Son of Wesker aspect, yes, somewhat. They even made him a hand to hand super powered monster that rocked Ustanak in a fist fight. He was a significantly weaker and dumber Wesker.

If you thought melee fighting Ustanek, after all that shit, was unfun, you are dead inside.

Yeah... erm

Didn't really like her new look much either as someone else said. Was a step back compared to her design/appearance in RE4 and the like.

@ Renegade: Ah. See where you're coming from a little more now, but guess I'll just have to agree to disagree. Piers to me definitely had some memorable lines, and the expendable/replaceable bit can easily be said for some others in the series too, to be fair. lol And honestly Jake was much more of a generic character/stereotype to me than Piers was. Being Wesker's son doesn't give him a free pass far as that.

thumb up

Am not much a Jake fan either, but can at least see why others like him. He's at least likable as opposed to Simmons or someone.

And with Jake's current age and experience, of course he wasn't gonna live up to Wesker just yet. I didn't mind him being (in essence) a toned down Wesker though, with how much a gary stu he already seemed as it is.

He was weaker and less intelligent so perhaps that not who he was supposed to be. I don't think there was any implication that he was supposed to explicitly be Wesker 2.0 so I'm not on that boat with you.

Its not that it wasn't fun, it just didn't belong in an RE game. I play RE to be scared shitless, not have an epic melee battle with Nemesis 2.0. That didn't belong there at all.

Where did Jake even get powers? I'm pretty sure his dad didn't have it till after the injection, so Wesker definitely reproduced while he was normal. Everything about Jake just messed with me. I hope he is significantly changed if they bring him back in the future.

Wesker was a test subject since infancy.

The purpose of that was to make a super intelligent being, which they succeeded in. It didn't give Wesker any kind of hand to hand capabilities or super strength, so where did Jake get it? And why was he your typical run-of-the-mill retard henchmen/merc? It doesn't fit.

Yeah. I mean, I didn't like a lot of the changes they made, but I could live with them. Just not that...

He became a merc so he would have the money to take care of himself and his mom as he pretty much grew up homeless (not like Wesker gave his son trust funds or anything). How does that not fit?

If the gameplay is more like Revelations, I'm all for this. If it's more like RE6, then I won't be in such a hurry to play this.

I'd also like Jill, Claire, and maybe Rebecca to return as main characters. I'm sick of Chris and Leon right now. The former has been in three main RE games in a row now.
