Anyone dressing up as their favorite characters this year?
Due to the disappointing sales figures of Resident Evil 6 as seen by Capcom, they have told the fans, once again, that the Resident Evil series will be returning to its roots with the seventh entry, citing inspiration in other games such as the reboot of Tomb Raiderand The Last of Us in terms of directions they would like to take the game. While both of those games are great in their own regard, Resident Evil was once standing proud, stumbled, and has since fallen on its face and will need to look into its own past to gain its ground once more.
Here are seven things I believe the seventh game must do in order gain back the respect of its older fans while also keeping the new fans happy, and keeping everyone surprised. This is going to be a long ride, so grab a drink and prepare yourself.
1 – No More Parasites
This one I cannot stress enough. No more Ganados, no more Majini, no more gun wielding C-Virus soldiers. These enemies are not scary, they are not smart, they do not add anything to Resident Evil. Originally in Resident Evil 4 they were scary at first because they could wield weapons (farm tools and chainsaws) and seemed to be able to cooperate to take Leon down, but here’s the problem: they’re as dumb as a bag of rocks. They’ll run toward you and stop five feet short so you have time to shoot, waste time muttering things in other languages instead of just attacking you, and give you breathing room. No! That’s not tense at all.
Then, towards the end of Resident Evil 5, they gave them guns. Infected people with guns may as well just be stupid human AI with guns. It’s like Capcom was aiming for the Call of Duty crowd and injected some pathetic excuse to hang onto Resident Evil in a way. Players don’t care what they’re shooting at in order to have fun (or be scared) Capcom.
Zombies are the bread and butter of Resident Evil. They’re slow, deadly in numbers, and are constantly whittling down our ammo and making us question if we should save our supplies or expend some to be rid of them. Capcom did right by bringing them back into the series with Resident Evil 6, but the problem there is that they were only in Leon’s campaign, not Chris’ or Jake’s. You can argue that some parasites transform when wounded but their transformations are hardly game changing. Plug them full of bullets and they die all the same. Resident Evil should be about zombies and wicked bio organic weapons, which leads me to…

At some undetermined time Claire introduced her brother and Leon for the first time even though interactions between their respective organizations was highly restrictive but she believed this meeting was an important step in breaking down the barrier between the U.S. government and the BSAA. They both shook hands, conversed for a little while and parted ways, the conversation on that meeting was kept classified.
After the death of Albert Wesker in 2009, Sherry made a deal with the U.S. Government to become an agent for them in exchange for her freedom. She received training and was put under Derek Simmons charge. Hearing this Claire sent a letter to Sherry warning her about Simmons, she always distrusted him and felt he was hiding something every time she looked into his eyes. Unfortunately this letter was intercepted and never shown to Sherry or Simmons.
Despite this both Sherry and Claire always spend time together when their busy schedules permit it.
