The lights are on
Update: Capcom set the following statement to Game Informer:
"While we have not confirmed the final number of cutscenes in the game, the BBFC length also includes death scenes for the six characters in the game, and is not an accurate representation of the actual cinematic cut-scene total, which will be less."
The sixth major entry in Capcom's Resident Evil franchise features over four hours of cutscenes, according to a new listing by the British Board of Film Classification.
The rating lists the total runtime of cutscenes at 255 minutes. For comparison, Resident Evil 5 had 65 minutes of cutscenes while Resident Evil 4 had 127 minutes.
Is that good or bad?
Ugg... I hope they don't make this game just soggy with cut-scenes. Stopping the action in it's tracks was a mistake made by many MGS games. A cut-scene ever 30 seconds got to be a major blemish on an otherwise perfect series.
this explains a lot actually, because re5 is only half as good as re4, which means that re6 is going to be at least twice as good as re4.
I'm happy to hear this. I've always been fascinated by the Resident Evil storyline -- even if it's a little absurd, I've always gotten absorbed in the stories for these games.
And I don't think that these means you're going to be watching all 4 hours of these cutscenes. You know why? Quick time events!
Lol and MGS4 had what like 10 hrs of scenes it seemed
Seems a bit excessive to me.
ok so how much gameplay does it have?
"Meh, it only has FOUR hours of cutscenes. What a joke! How could you possibly try to make such a convoluted story line vaguely understandable with only four hours of cutscenes."
Soooo... they're creating some mutant cross-breed from both the game and film products of the franchise?
RE4 has 2 hours of cutscenes?! Doesn't feel like it haha
YES! THAT IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! STORY!
(though if they are unskippable I will be a little irked)
I love all the cut-scenes from waaaay back to like THE ORIGINAL. So if this game has over 4 hours of cut-scenes, I am suuuuper excited to sit and watch and totally enjoy every minute of it, and PLUS the gameplay will be amazing!! :D Yay!
