    Hey all,

    After hearing that Capcom was making a Wii-make of RE4 I was semi excited. Then I read that they were also making a completely new from the ground up game called RE: Umbrella Chronicles, which would explain the fall of Umbrella Corps. which would also be an on rails shooter. Ok cool, i wasn't too excited about it until I saw this trailer for it...I swear it will make any Wii owner (who isn't scared of blood and zombies) jump for joy.

    Anything with Resident Evil is good enough of a reason for me to get excited.

    I love the idea for it. I've always had a soft spot for on-rails shooters.

    Although I don't like Jill's new voice.

    With all the Resident Evil's coming out for the Wii, it's making me want to not even bother with the Afghanistan based Resident Evil 5 (I heard it was based in Afghanistan, not sure if that's still the case). Even then, with the PS2 still producing games, and beating PS3's sales, there could potentially be a PS2 version, which means it's portable to the Wii...

    But, I'm really excited for both Resident Evil 4 (Wii) and Umbrella Chronicles.

    A shooter where you simply shoot what is on screen as the story progresses. You can't move about and explore at will.

    that would be fun, but id prefer a normal shooter, exploring ect. thats what i love about the resident evils. the exploration, especially resident evil 1.
    i notice that its the same mansion as the original. is this true.
    and also is it a on-rail sooter right through?

    There's mulitiple levels. The level demoed was the mansion from the first game. Then there's Billy/Rebecca's section and Leon/Claires section, Jill/Carlos' section and possibly Claire/Chris (or steve's) section.

    It's basically a case of looking at how the Umbrella Corporation rises and falls.

    Looks pretty good for a track shooter - seems it would be more at home in an arcade.

    Actually they may make Umbrella Chronicles Online multiplayer. Capcom made it clear they will be making Resident Evil Outbreak 3. Maybe this is it? The theme in the past 2 Outbreak games was replaying old stages in the RE series.

    i hope its not all on-rail.
    it will be like playing one of the shooting games in the arcade.
    thats my favorite thing about RE, free roam, unlocking things and using my mind. not just shooting.

    Umm i was really pissed when I found out it was a rail-shooter. REALLY PISSED.

    I also do not plan on buying RE4 for Wii. We want new games, not more ports.

    For $30.00 RE4 wii edition will be a great buy for those who have not played it on GC.

    Chronicles will prob be a rent first buy if like like most games.

    I am currently playing it on my wii, but the gamecube version. I have been extremely out of the game loop for some time. I honestly do see them improving too much by "porting" it to wii format, and the $30 price doesn't convence me much either. I picked up my GC copy of RE4 at gamestop for $17 used, but it was never played... I think someone bought it and instantly traded it in :confused: ... oh well score for me :lol:

    It's all very well and good boycotting because you do not want ports, but in the end, it could show that there is little interest on the platform.

    If we buy Resident Evil for the Wii, they will make more. If Resident Evil doesn't sell on the Wii, they won't bother doing another one.

    I get what you're saying but in the end, which is better; something being not in the way you want or it not being there at all?
