Personally, my best case is that this game delivers what I'm getting from the trailer and they cap off the classic stuff between the RE barrage this year, and carry over the system without the story baggage for further installments. Though, I'm not hardcore into the series, so I do have less attachment to the characters. Who knew I'd be excited to see Ashley in there?
It's because Ashley is equipped with "ballistics". But seriously, I still like Resident Evil as a series. Anything that gets it away from the stupid ass space vampire, anime bullshit that was Wesker's character, I'm for it. I'm afraid Operation: Raccoon City is going to be that sort of stupid. But, this game I'm honestly excited for. I'm hoping that because it's now another city that looks like it's been infected, that the gameplay will be going away from the same tropes as the earlier games had; having to take various interpretations of keys for various interpretations of doors, having to do with the same sort of adventure game logic we're all used to now, but doesn't make sense.
Having both Chris and Leon in the same game is definitely interesting. Does that mean that both of them are working for the same organization? Also, it made it look like Ashley is working for the bad guy, but maybe he's not the real bad guy? And Barry? Where's Barry? Did anyone else catch that someone was using the call-sign "Hunk" in the trailer? Does that mean he's in the game? If that's so, why is he not sounding like a total badass? Granted, maybe Hunk was badass because he never had spoken dialogue. I'm really interested in how this story goes, though story was never a strong suit for Resident Evil as a series.
