Coming from the place that has RE restaurants? Color me surprised.
I'm not surprised since it's a good game. I'm just surprised to see that the 360 version is even on the top 5 list.
Well at least we know that Resident Evil/biohazard will never die in its home lol, still havent finished :/
That's alot of games. Nearly 700 k...good job
I know a lot of people think of this game as a betrayal (I get why, I do), but I am really glad this game is doing well. Resident Evil 6 was enjoyable for me. Sure, the QTEs, the lack of an opening (seriously, the game felt like one long climax), and little annoyances held it back. But I actually had a blast with this game. Glad to see it doing well.
BECAUSE IT'S ACTUALLY A GOOD GAME!!!!!!!!
I personally love RE6 so I'm glad to see it doing well.
i like the game well enough :3
I love RE6, I'm actually a little upset that it's getting such mixed reception. I think it's a great game and every second I spend with it is a blast.
...Not bad hopefully it will see the same amount of success in other countries.
PS3 ftw. Just kidding, this isn't a perfect game but it doesn't deserve the hate it's getting. So much content on the disc and more dlc to come, this is the best Capcom's done in a long time.
i heard it didnt fare so well over here. im not a fan of it after trying out the demo.
