Resident Evil 6 Has Big Nasty Things Too

Recent reels of Resident Evil 6 footage would have you forget that any entity other than the humble zombie has ever existed. And while the likes of Day Z and The Walking Dead actually put purpose back in their spring-less steps, RE seems quite content to treat them like undead bowling pins. It is, then, utterly heartbreaking to watch poor, helpless multi-story monstrosities suffer the bonds of obscurity in silence. Theirs is the greatest of all the plights. But no more. The latest RE6 trailer introduces what appears to be a fairly sizable boss creature - well, after devoting about half its runtime to more easily extinguished zombies, anyway.

Hooray, needle appendages and acid saliva! The thing's no El Gigante, but it's a start, at least. And at this point, I really am pulling for absurdly over-the-top bosses to be Resident Evil 6's saving grace. I mean, even RE5 had a couple solid encounters with bosses both big and small, and excellent one-on-one showdowns are something of a rarity in games these days. And hey, if you've clearly got a budget the size of a human pyramid built atop a non-human Godzilla, why not go all in? I, for one, will remain ever hopeful.
