Just caught the trailer over at GameSpot and...WOW!
As a die hard RE fan since the first game way back in April 1996, I'm just in a state of shock right now. Usually, Capcom will tease us with the next game for at least a year before launch. And it wasn't just a tease, they showed A LOT of action. This one came out of left field for me, since it will be released for the holidays 2012.
I'm in the small minority when I admit that I loved RE5. To me, one of the best parts of it was the finality feel to it. Unlike the previous games, it gave the series closure. Capcom had a choice to either reboot the franchise with new characters or continue the paths of our familiar heroes.
Honestly, I'm glad they didn't go in the reboot direction. Chris and Leon are back, and it looks like Ashley and Ingrid retrun from RE4. I'm stoked for this game. I'll preorder tomorrow if I could, get the collector's edition if they release one and probably even wait in line at the midnight launch.
It's released right after my birthday and right before my 2 week vacation. I played RE in my 20s, 30s, and by the time RE6 comes out, I'll be into my 40s.
