Are you eagerly awaiting Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City? If you are then you are on a short list of people who actually like the game, when the game was first announced fans were first excited at the idea of the new playstyle of the series and how this game will be more focused on multiplayer more than anything but after the gameplay videos fans everywhere are disappointed with Capcom yet again, first fans showed their hate for the new Dante in Devil May Cry, then fans were again angry at Mega Man Legends getting cancelled and it seems that this could be the last straw for them.
Capcom is slowly losing its fanbase, after the whole incident with Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D on the 3DS where players couldn’t delete their save files caused a ruckus among fans when they found out that the cartridge had little to no resale / trade value and then Capcom cancels Mega Man Legends 3 and blames it on lack of “fan support” and now Capcom is mainly focusing on milking the Resident Evil / Street Fighter / Devil May Cry name for all their worth and are slowly becoming hated among fans, at first I also had little faith in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City would improve but the gameplay video just proves how wrong I could be.
As you can see this is far from Resident Evil, this is a hybrid of Socom meets Call of Duty meets many other games in one ugly mess. It might just be me over reacting but Capcom has really let me down, I can forgive them not localizing Professor Layton X Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth Investigations 2 but to ruin Resident Evil and Devil May Cry like this is simply going a tad too far don’t you think? I certainly hope the big wigs at Capcom get their acts together, I for one am definitely not planning on buying any Capcom game unless they do some serious thinking on how they are becoming more and more money hungry rather than serving their fanbase like they used to.
