Resident Evil 6: The Missing Tutorial

Apparently, we're all playing Resident Evil 6 wrong....the game is missing a badly needed tutorial that would make the experience less frustrating. Also, it isn't set up by default to optimal settings. See below:

(note: all button references are for the Xbox version)

- For your laser sight, pick 'Classic' which would revert to a tracing-style laser instead of a red dot. Much easier to aim.

- For your camera, set it to speed 2.

- For your aiming speed, set it to 7. These two camera/aiming settings should reduce the clunkiness of the movement.

- So you don't run out of bullets too fast, press LT + RT for a quickshot, which hits enemies that are very near you very quickly without aiming! It can also be a stylish animation depending on your character and equipped weapon.

- Quickshot uses your stamina bar which is that thing below your life bar. If you use all those up, you won't be able to do effective melee attacks.

- Melee also uses your stamina bar. That explains the "sissy kick" you keep on doing inexplicably....

- To refill your stamina, take cover (LT near a wall).

- To take down monsters easily, shoot them once with any weapon, run towards them (with your choice of move [shoulder tackle/slide], then kill them with a physical attack. This saves you ammunition.

- Equipping the skill "Firepower Lv.1" saves you even more ammunition.

- When you're out of bullets, run towards your enemy by pressing and holding A, then press RT to execute a shoulder tackle. Or you can do the slide animation which is already explained in some parts of the game (A + LT).

- You can switch directions while on the ground after a slide by pressing DOWN. Or you can turn by pressing left/right.

- To quick rise (an ukemi, yeah, like a fighting game), press A+Down as soon as you hit the ground!

- Huge tip: When you get those QTEs with the thumbstick, use BOTH thumbsticks to fill the bar faster!

The Quickshot and the camera / aiming improvements were the most useful changes to my gameplay; oddly enough, all these extra controls make the game EASIER! Not sure if it's a bad thing but I did find myself less frustrated.

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts

Microsoft:

- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
