Some stuff about Damnation. Nothing spectacular. A logo has been shown and the website got an update. Has a section called Key Staff Comments, but is only in Japanese at the moment. Release date went from August to sometime between September and November with no official date announced.

Why? Who's character did it develop? How did it progress the story? Last I checked it just necessitated having completely random and almost entirely pointless games like Code Veronica.

CODE:Veronica was neither random nor pointless, and it was also originally titled... BIOHAZARD 3 . The BH3 we know was originally titled BIOHAZARD 1.9 .

BH3 is on equal footing with BH2 and the BH1 remake in terms of greatness. Also has the best and most fleshed-out story in the series (courtesy of Yasuhisa Kawamura), but due to the nature of the game, it's mostly in the background.

Let's look at the story of BH3...

1) Continued the story of S.T.A.R.S.

2) Continued the story of Raccoon City, which was still roaming with Zombies at the end of BH2

3) Provided more insight into Umbrella (American/European branch rivalry, spies in the U.S. government, U.B.C.S., their actions during the incident, their response to S.T.A.R.S., their collusion with the U.S. government, etc)

4) Introduced the U.S. government as a key player, sending Special Forces to rescue Birkin and take the G-Virus.

5) Provided epilogues of all of the main characters and paved the way for future games.

6) Revealed more about what led to the outbreak and how the city coped.

7) Revealed Umbrella's actions during the incident, with Monitors destroying/collecting evidence and B.O.W. combat data which allowed them to continue development (a big part of CODE:Veronica)

Plus whatever I'm missing. Overall, BH3 was intended to act as an intermediary between every other game in the series. It's epilogues were intended to lead directly into CV and BH4, which were in development at the same time.

The story of BH2? G-Virus, showing how the outbreak occurred... that's about it. In terms of how big the scenario is, BH3 is only trumped by CODE:Veronica and Revelations.

This game's entire claim to fame is a tedious, failed gimmick.

Considering the popularity of Nemesis, and the fact that BH3 has the best gameplay of the PS1 games... no.

Actually, this entire game is not scary in the least. It has zero in the way of atmosphere or even jump scares..

Bullshit. BH3 has just as much if not more jump scares than BH1 and BH2 combined, and has more of a lasting, foreboding fear aspect due to the Nemesis, which is superior to the T-103 from BH2. The atmosphere is also just as good, yet different from both of them.

There's also no real mystery or conflict driving us. We are trying to escape Raccoon City but that's not keeping me hookd. In RE1 you had the mystery of the zombies and monsters. RE2 gave us teh G-Virus. RE3 gave us....nothing. At most you could wonder a bit about what Nicholai was after but that was an absolutely miniscule subplot.

There was no mystery to BH2 either, as it was all explained barely 1/4 into the game. There was no mystery to the G-Virus, you get told outright what it is and what it does and what it's for, who made it and why it's important. BH3 was not about mystery, it did not pretend to be nor did it imply it had one. The title of the game in Japan is "LAST ESCAPE", for fuck's sake. The game tells you exactly what you're getting into.

This game is when RE pretty much left survival horror in the dust.

That's BH4. Or BH5, since BH4 actually did have some decent survival horror parts, however limited they were.

tl;dr version: Cut the bullshit.

In terms of what the worst game in the series is, that honor goes to either BIOHAZARD GUN SURVIVOR or BIOHAZARD GAIDEN . However, GS1 has an excellent scenario, so that puts it one notch above BHG.

Allow me to add to your post, News Bot, since Nikkolas queried about character development.

Like News Bot said, there was TONS of character progression given in the form of the epilogues. They gave us insight on things characters would never say in-game, like Ada and her scar((?)was it a scar?) and how much Chris means to Jill.

In-game, a major plot point was given in the form of Jill being infected. Without that happening, RE5 wouldn't have happened. This game was important for Jill in the sense that it really fleshed her character out as not being as helpless as she was in the beginning of the mansion incident. Those events toughened her up, and she held her own against an entire city, along with the strongest B.O.W. to date, sans T.A.L.O.S. (someone can correct me on this)

also, you mentioned liking to examine things. I believe RE3 is the only RE game, besides REmake, that let you examine every desk/bookshelf/locker, etc. So if anything, praise it for that.

But hey, if you like examining things, PLAY PARASITE EVE 2. That game gives a different line of text every time you examine something, up til the 3rd-5th examine. The character often elaborates on what you're examining, and sometimes will actually start to tell stories . There are even items you can only find if you check certain areas more than once.

Kawata hints at other RE titles alongside RE6.

" Explaining that the side-by-side of The Mercenaries 3D and Revelations had gone smoothly and efficiently, Kawata also indicated that there would be more offshoot titles like these in the Resident Evil series alongside this year's Resident Evil 6, and he hoped they would surprise people. "

Sven hinted a little while ago a suprise for old school RE fans so that might be it.

Here it is. ... e-evaluate

Arise, thread.

We've confirmed the information.

In the late 1960s, Spencer, Ashford and Marcus begin the "t-Virus Project" in order to develop a weaponized variant of the Progenitor Virus-- a branch of viruses generally called "t-Virus".

In 1968, while he is researching the Progenitor Virus in an attempt to develop a weaponized variant, Edward Ashford is killed by Spencer.

In 1978, Albert Wesker reports the carelessness of Marcus's research management to Spencer, who also learns of Marcus's own t-Virus research. The Umbrella Research Center is shut down and Wesker and William Birkin are transferred to the Arklay Laboratory by Spencer, to lead his own t-Virus development. Knowing that Marcus's results would surpass his own, Spencer schemes to steal his research results by manipulating his passion for his research and desire to surpass Spencer.

The t-Virus used by Wesker and Birkin in Wesker's Report II is actually an inferior t-Virus created by combining the Progenitor Virus and the Ebola Virus.

t-Veronica was the Ashford family's contribution to the t-Virus Project. It is a t-Virus.

In 1988, Marcus completes his t-Virus and Spencer orders for it to be stolen. It is the most advanced t-Virus, and Birkin is announced as its creator. It becomes "the" t-Virus.

Yeah, Edward was officially assassinated by Spencer. It's actually been the case since CODE:Veronica, but no English material actually states it (surprise!). He was infected with the Progenitor Virus during an "accident" caused/staged by Spencer.

 Post subject: Spec Ops Missions Spoilers
Posted: Mar 27, 2012 14:52 

Credit to Ultimate-RE

I had to rely on a translator, so if some of the information is incorrect or misunderstood, I apologize in advance.

Utilizing audio files that were discovered on the Operation Raccoon City disc, Ultimate-RE has pieced together a rough outline of the DLC Spec Ops missions. I am not sure at this point if this includes all of the missions that will be released, or just the first one (or two). I will be enclosing the information in spoiler tags so that those who wish to go in fresh will be able to.

First things first, it appears the true mission of the Spec Ops is to retrieve William Birkin and escort him out of the city into government custody. However, they are advised by their CO to not reveal this information to anyone, so when they encounter Jill and she asks them what they're doing there, they tell her that their mission is to rescue survivors and collect evidence implicating Umbrella in the outbreak.

After meeting Jill and, presumably, fending off Nemesis, the team heads to City Hall, believing that it will offer clues and information regarding Umbrella's involvement. While there, they discover video footage of the USS, alerting the Spec Ops to the opposition. Whether the footage is of Wolfpack or the generic USS grunts you will likely be facing during the campaign is unknown. They also find plans that disclose the location of Umbrella's underground laboratory, and their CO orders them to infiltrate the lab via the sewers.

Somewhere along the way, possibly in the sewers, the Spec Ops run into Claire, and she asks them to help her find Sherry, who has gone missing. The CO says finding Sherry might ultimately aid the team in locating and extracting William, because they have not heard from him since before the outbreak. Once Sherry is located and reunited with Claire, another team of Spec Ops escort them outside of the city (I would wager specifically the train yard from the final USS mission).

The Spec Ops arrive at the underground laboratory but must ultimately destroy it (or a part of it) to contain a threat they encounter (possibly Birkin?). They are then contacted by their CO, informing them that all contact has been lost with the team that was escorting Claire and Sherry, and they need to head to their last known coordinates to protect them, as well as Leon, from the USS. This seems to be the final battle from the USS campaign, but this time you're protecting Leon, Claire, and Sherry from the USS and aren't given an option to save or kill them. Afterwards, the trio are taken into protective custody.

After this, there is one last mission for the Spec Ops. They are ordered to move to the Dead Factory (the P12-A factory from the USS campaign), and it is here where you will get to play through the battle between the Spec Ops and T-103s, the aftermath of which Jill witnesses at the end of RE3. You will be faced with several T-103s, and you will have to utilize the Paracelsus' Sword rail cannon to defeat all of them. One player will operate the cannon, while the other players will have to fend off the T-103s as well as operate the various levers and switches which power the cannon.

This is apparently where the mission ends.

Feel free to discuss, but you might want to use spoiler tags just to be safe.

Besides Dracarys has ripped many of these 'facts' (of which you posted zero here, since you targeted me) apart on THIA,

Dracarys can't and has never ripped anything apart. She is incorrect at the best of times and deluded at the worst. Like you, she bases everything on an opinion, and screams about not caring as soon as she is challenged but throws in her opinion at every opportunity just to be heard, regardless of how correct (which is never) or relevant it is.

You have no facts. Just opinions that you think are facts and trying to claim as such, since there is no solid evidence of them being so I see right through this farce and trying to claim otherwise without presenting evidence (not more opinions passed off as evidence) is a futile endeavour, I'm not going to cure cancer but I hardly need that amount of smarts to see through such a paper thin argument.

I wanted to see if you were capable of respecting an opinion while disagreeing with it, you proved yourself incapable despite being given a very fair chance. What a small person to not even be able to rise high enough to do that over something so trivial. How do you, or just perhaps 'do you' interact with people in real life? Certainly not like this unless you are forever alone. We can all act like arseholes behind a computer screen but that doesn't mean we should.

I will show you one final courtesy and treat as I would a person in real life who has acted as you have, and that is to just plain ignore you since you've proven yourself not worthy of interaction with.

I'm sorry you took those negative remarks about other people personally, they really were not aimed at you. I do not skirt about hiding insults, I make them direct and very clear though like with you once this post is finished I usually just rise above it and ignore the person. The fact you took them to heart speaks more of your self perception than it does my views.

Everything Ikari has stated in this topic is a plain fact. Everything you have stated in this topic is an opinion, and has the added bonus of being completely incorrect with no evidence or sources to support them.
