Resident Evil 6, Halo 4 win at Golden Reel Awards

Capcom and Microsoft titles take home sound editing awards at 60th Motion Picture Sound Editors awards.

by

Resident Evil 6 and Halo 4 were winners at the 60th Motion Picture Sound Editors Golden Reel Awards this month, organizers have announced.

Capcom's latest zombie shooter took home the Best Sound Editing award for Computer Interactive Entertainment. It beat out Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Halo 4, Skylanders Giants, and the cinematic trailer for World of Warcraft's Mists of Pandaria expansion.

Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn received the Best Sound Editing award for Computer Episodic Entertainment. Microsoft's first foray into the space was good enough to beat out Battlestar Galactica's Blood and Chrome, Cybergeddon, Drone, and H+ The Digital Series: African Aid.

The Golden Reel Awards recognize sound editing across 22 categories, including feature films, animation, television, computer entertainment, and student work. A complete list of winners is available at Deadline.

After all the ambition Capcom placed in this game it is funny the only thing RE6 won was at the sound department.

So much rage about Capcom and Resident Evil 6 is getting funny. Now is the time to revive the good old times and with better quality. Thankfully its still fun...

I now know to disregard anything from this publication if the nominees include RE6, CoD, and skylanders. It is like they went into their child's room and picked up the top few cases off a stack of games and called it good enough.

They clearly haven't dove to deep into gaming or know much about it if this is the best they could come up with.

The sound editing actually wasn't bad.  Not sure about award material though...

Too bad the everything else was total garbage.

RE6??? should get nothing! I don't care if it was for audio or not! It is the MODEL of what EXACTLY the game industry should not be doing. 

Deadspace 3 went in a TOTAL new direction from dead space 1 and 2. It was still fun. 

Resident evil 6 did the same and it was garbage.

Halo 4 has won several awards, but RE 6 gets it's first and only award in the audio department.  That's enough to understand how crappy the rest of the game elements are.

best sound editing? lol the game didn't even success in scaring me with 'jump scares' utilizing sound, like the clock and the thunder on the first mission of Leon's campaign. But it have pretty cool scores.

i actually had more fun with this game than i did with any RE game. i've noticed that alot of gamers these days love to complain about things.  who can't wait to just throw on the label "crap" on games. RE 6 isn't perfect, but if you think this is a crap game then you clearly don't know what one really is.

Perspective:  Nerds who win sound Oscars have their own awards banquet (at Denny's) and they don't get invited to after parties.

Good for RE6! It's good to see people defend a game which everbody hates that means it did make some people happy. That's something developers need to keep in mind.

Resident evil 6 was awesome. All the haters are just babies who can't grow up. I love the old resident evil games and still play them to this date. The game deserved so much more; yeah it had problems but not that many.

re 6 was a great game winning in sound  though i`m not sure.but i`d have say the story,gameplay were better than its sound.but i`m glad re 6 won something though. re 6 was the best game for me last year next to dragons dogma.

@Grenadeh  

No, it won the award for not paying attention to noslagia blind fans who found the game to hard who say things like "ruined franchise" because it isn't the same braindead gameplay. you know, you.

RondoMachete

@jagcivtec Why is it crappy to you and everyone else,I find it a great game,with 4 single or co/op levels and they all add something a little different....it looks good,plays great and the replay value to me and a good few of my mates is high...so we can't see why everyone keeps slagging it.....try and take another look and give it a chance...

@prestodaniel Oh no I know what a crap game is. Ive played ET for Atari, and Cyberia, and Shenmue, and a lot more games than you have I have no doubt.

@Strider8009  People defend this game because they actually like it, can't they have an opinion? Resident Evil has always been a milked franchise from mobile games to many spinoffs to ports to movies and yearly releases. It's okay if you don't like the game but don't ruin it for others, what if everybody hated your favorite game? Wouldn't you defend it?

prestodaniel

@Strider8009  as far as i'm concerned it still is whining. considering how DmC is a definitely a solid hack n' slash game and many feel the same way.(probably not on here and gamefaqs) so anything the haters say about that game is not even worth whi- complaining about. so whiners, butthurt, etc. sounds about right.

@Yalaa1 well the game didn't actually get an award for being "good". It got one for best "Sound Editing".  So it just means the folks who worked on the audio did a good job the rest of the dev team still has to deal with making a crap game

@Yalaa1 Doesn't it feel good to be the contrarian? People didn't like the game because hey didn't like the game. That's all there is to it.

@wexorian Great sound design isn't a crappy award. Hopefully all the games you buy next have shitty sound design, or maybe you just play games on mute all the time.

@Strider8009 sluggish controls? In all honesty, RE6 has one of the most responsive controls if not on par with most third person shooters. I understand what you're saying about the campaigns and the non-sensical plot (which RE has never really been great at) but I completely disagree with what you said about the controls. If you take the time to learn it (I'm not saying you're bad at it), then you'll see that it was really well done and it's akin to the old play styles as well.

There's a few new (and some may call innovative) features incorporated into the game mechanics as well that you just don't see in modern TPS. Such as dodging in any direction, contextual and environmental melee, fast paced object interaction, body-specific hit boxes (Yes, Dead Space has them), a few other small features. I actually think, no believe, the cover system trumps that of Mass Effect.

Sluggish controls, compared to today's standard are more RE1-5; tank controls if you will. Which I am a big fan of regardless.

So when you say sluggish controls, I don't know what the hell you're talking about.

And I think you're missing the point of the award. It was for "sound editing", not the actual game itself or the cutscenes or whatever- "sound EDITING". Sorry if I sound a little rude, but there's a lot of misinterpretation that goes on in your part as well.

Kudos to the RE6 sound team for winning this award.

@resident_jisen the sroty might actually be worse than the gameplay, atleast the game still remains playable just because shooting zombies has some inherent fun/entertainment to it.

@RondoMachete Everyone else clearly meaning 11 year old girls and frat boy retards and otherwise Stockholme Syndrome suffering fan-tards who don't have any respect for themselves that they continue to suck at the tit of increasingly terrible horrible Resident Evil games. RE6 was terrible at a level that defies comprehension . Even the worst games in history were better than RE6, like Cyberia or ET. It looks like utter dog shit on both PS3 and 360, it has worse graphics than RE5, the characters continue to show a minimum of development and a minimal amount of personality, the story is virtually  non-existent, the interface blows, the Skill system blows and they somehow managed to ruin the one thing that was always solid in RE4 and RE5 - gun customization. e.g there is none in RE6, and it plays like Operation Raccoon City. Not to mention, camera angles almost as bad as MG Rising Revengeance. The bosses were unimaginative and boring, and easy, Simmons was literally a 7 stage boss who made no sense, and they even ruined Ada's campaign with a patch that made it co-op. The enemies are just a mashed together re-hash of the last three games - it has enemies from Revelations in it, an attempt at zombies, more boring intelligent zombie soldiers who you can still massacre with melee (something that defined skill in RE1/2/3/CV - being able to win with a knife). The list goes on and on, and to top it all off, the best co-op (before Ada was co-op) campaign in the game is the one that is 100%% not survival horror - Chris.

@RondoMachete The game has many elements in it that go against good game design.

It isn't the worst game out there, but like CoD they don't do enough to deserve the sales they get while many amazing games go unrecognized and the developers go under.

@ChristysXmas @gantarat This is "Resident Evil" not a new IP get it through your head .. Can't you ever open your mind closed head and think about the fate of the Franchise for once of your life !

@Yalaa1 @Strider8009 No because they're wrong. Liking something is one thing, but people don't just say "I like it." They say "I liked it and it was a great game so I don't know what's wrong with you." That's a statement of fact. Unfortunately, the FACT is that RE6 blows dicks. In a 40 hour game, there were maybe 4 good hours. 10% is not a passing grade. And none of those hours include Mercs, mercs is by default good so it does not count at all.

@Yalaa1 @Strider8009 You do have a point, I'm sure out there somewhere there are ven those who defend Superman 64. There were definitely those who defended Duke Nukem Forever lmao.

@dangermouse2k  @Chaos_Dante_456 @Yalaa1   Yeah, sure guys... I didn't say it was a good or bad game i just said good for Re6 it got an award but okay... 

Edit: Also, sure the game has it's flaws it's not even scary anymore but seeing some people defend the game sure means that it did something right maybe it's not your cup of tea but that doesn't mean developers should give up on being creative and try something different just because the fanboys and critics didn't like it's new vibe.

BTW the features you mentioned are by no means innovative and have been in games for quite a while. Other games had contextual melee. HL2 introduced location-specific hit-points to replace hit-boxes, a decade ago. Every 3ps since 3ps became popular has had a good cover system. The only thing RE6 introduced that was actually good was the counter system, shooting while down (something that was in L4D but you are immobile in L4D), sliding, and healing your partner while reviving them. Those are good features but they don't excuse the fact that the game itself is boring and doesn't merit good features. The ONLY good thing about RE6 is the multiplayer and the single player mercs. Ada used to be the best campaign, the only good campaign, but they ruined that too by making it co-op which defeated the entire reason it was good in the first place.

None of that excuses the non-existent story, gigantic plot holes, loose ends, boring gameplay, boring and unintimidating enemies, almost pointless dialogue and cut-scenes, the hyperbolic silliness, the steps backward in gun upgrading, the terribly derivative enemy design, the CoD sequences, the forced and contrite annoying attempts to reference the old games, or the simply broken parts.

@Chaos_Dante_456 @resident_jisen to be honest i found the   story in re 6 very good and i had so much fun playing last year i played it off and on for 3 month`s i think i have over 200 hours logged into it. i still play it cause i still have fun playing it.

@Strider8009  The fuck is your problem dude if someone likes a game for what it is then you just accept and fucking deal with it you don't have to like the game, you dont have to like how milked, screwed over, full of shit the game is, just forget it and enjoy your favorite game of the series or play something else, don't go hating on others for what they like Capcom has clearly always cared for money and their not gonna change anytime soon i guess they dont want the franchise to be survival horror anymore fucking shame but yeah thats how it is, i stopped caring for Resident Evil since RE5 but that doesn't mean others shouldnt enjoy it. Again just accept and move on.

Chaos_Dante_456

@Yalaa1 I figured some folks would like hell make anything with Resident Evil in the names, somebody will enjoy it, make a game about shooting zombies someone will enjoy it regardless of quality. the games has MANY flaws lol. forget it not being scary and too actiony. i don't care, it's not even a good action game when compared to most of the other games in the same genre.

@Grenadeh you never read the files do you..since you can`t figure out this story your are just a person with a loe IQ.as such you this my last response to you.

resident_jisen

@Grenadeh hey man lets me say this that scene your talking about happens in re 2 with claire and leon near the start of the game there in a cop car and jump out as the tanker trucks hit the cop car they were in. so piss off.

@Strider8009 @resident_jisen @Chaos_Dante_456 The sheer amount of OMG A TRUCK WATCH OUT/OMG a [insert exploding out of control vehicle]! in Leon's campaign alone is absofuckinglutely ridiculous.

Grenadeh
Grenadeh

@resident_jisen @Chaos_Dante_456 Then you don't know what the word story means nor did you play the game because there was no story. The plot was not explained until the last chapter of every campaign. Until that there was absolutely no story whatsoever that actually mattered. It was literally never explained why or how Tall Oaks got infected. They just showed a lepricosa and assumed that we're all fucking 3 year olds and that simply showing a BOW that could infect people in a VERY small radius, explained how an ENTIRE town got infected. They also expected us to believe that, somewhere in America, there would be a secret (and really shitty and inadequate) lab underground, that leads into an ancient, but not older than the length of time cavern that literally descends beyond the crust of the Earth and yet, somehow, descending further down, will spit you out the side of the coastline into a lake or ocean. That was just part of how ridiculous it was.

@Strider8009 @resident_jisen no whats more laughable is how you and all the bashers and haters keep this up .i couldn`r careless how much you huys hate this game.you waste your time all day long bashing and talking about a game thats dead  when there ton of new games out there that are good and playable. you are all just broken records. you guys have said your take on this but no you keep on going and going lololololololol.

@Strider8009 still promoting this game good for you. at least someone still making this game looking good.i give you 3 star out of 5.the more you keep it up the more people will love this game.
