The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


I Always Thought Raccoon City Could've Been In Canada

SOCOM developers Slant Six might be responsible for your next Resident Evil game. How does that make you feel?

Apparently some leaks have sprung and the Canadian developer might be the next in a line of Western studios who have gotten their hands on some Eastern IPs from Capcom. Slant Six follows GRIN, Ninja Theory, and Blue Castle Games in Capcom's attempts at pulling in the American and European markets.

Specifically, Slant Six has developed two SOCOM titles for the PSP and SOCOM: US Navy Seals Confrontation for the PS3. In line with these previous team-based shooters, the possibly titled Resident Evil: Raccoon City will be a "multiplayer action game."

While several fanboys have already cried out in pain at this news, I'm personally okay with a Western developer taking a shot at a multiplayer RE title but I have a few issues.

First of all, will I be able to move and aim at the same time? I know Capcom got a ton of flack for Resident Evil 5 basically keeping players as walking turrets, but you have to realize that that kind of gameplay IS Resident Evil. RE's spirit will die if that element is changed.

Second, I'm worried that allowing players to move and aim at the same time will sell like hot cakes, practically forcing Capcom's hand to include that ability in the next numbered RE installment.

Third, I know I'm in the minority. Don't send me any hate mail.
