I’m starting to see a trend starting with the Wii that makes me quite uncomfortable. It started with Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, and House of the Dead: 1&2. Then House of the Dead: Overkill released, which is a game that I bought and love. After its release, the news was announced that a Dead Space on-rails shooter was in development. Now, we have another speculated ‘on-rails’ shooter coming our way. See the trend?
Famitsu has released an article, and pictures of an upcoming Resident Evil game; Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles. What isn’t completely known is what genre the game will actually be. Capcom hasn’t made an official statement yet, so until then it’s all speculation. Considering the word ‘chronicles’ is in the title, there’s more than a good chance it is an on-rails shooter.
Let’s just hope we don’t get another arcade shooter. I’m already sick of typing ‘on-rails’.
