Resident Evil

The Horror Geek presents: Afterlife begins in September—Resident Evil: Afterlife, that is

Resident Evil Apocalypse

With news that a fourth Resident Evil film was in the works only being confirmed recently, it's pretty impressive that a shooting date has already been lined up. These guys don't screw around when they decide to make a zombie flick…

Production Weekly is reporting that the newest Resident Evil film, titled Resident Evil: Afterlife is set to begin shooting this September 28th in Toronto. No real details have emerged yet (although the film is currently slated for a September 17th, 2010 release date). We do know this much—the newest outing will take place in Tokyo. I figure it's safe to assume that Milla Jovovich will return, but that's not official at this point.

 

 

The Horror Geek presents E3 2009: First look at Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

Ready to guide Claire and Leon on another sojourn through zombie-infested Raccoon City? Then Capcom's got just the game for you—provided you own a Nintendo Wii.

The company showed off footage of its new Wii-exclusive, Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles—an on-rails shooter sequel to Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles. The game promises to take players back to some of Raccoon City's classic locales and allow them to shoot an endless parade of rotting zombies and other assorted beasties while doing it.

Here's the latest trailer for the game.

Do improved graphics outweigh unreliability?

Red Ring of Death

My wife bought me the PlayStation 3 Collector's Edition of Resident Evil 5 on the day it came out. She knew that I hadn't yet decided which system I wanted the game for, and that I might end up trading it out, but she figured it would be a nice surprise to bring it home on release day anyway. The crux of my indecision came down to deciding between better graphics on a crappier system or slightly worse graphics on a more reliable system.

HIGH Co-op is a great addition to the Resident Evil formula.

LOW The controls are way out of touch with current standards.

WTF A half-naked tribesman drops grenade rounds? Where were they hidden, exactly?

The Horror Geek presents: Resident Evil 5's Versus Mode gets release date

Resident Evil 5

Just found this in my inbox, courtesy of the good folks at Capcom.

We are happy to announce that the wait for new Resident Evil 5 content is almost over!  The new online multiplayer Versus mode will be available to download on Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, April 7, 2009.  For 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE, or $4.99 on the PlayStation Network, Resident Evil fans will be able to go up against each other for the most terrifying Versus mode to date.

Versus allows up to four players to match wits in online battles across two very different game types. Slayer’s Rule is a point-based game that challenges players to kill Majinis. In Survivor’s Rule, players hunt the most dangerous game, each other! Players can begin the hunt as Chris, Sheva or other secret characters, and choose from either one-on-one or two-versus-two team matches for either of the two gameplay styles.

Now, let the debate as to whether or not we should have to pay $5 for this content commence…

Resident Evil 5 and the recipe for a successful marriage

There aren't many video games that do a good job of bringing in significant others, at least not of the kinds of games that I like to play. Sure, there are the standbys like Guitar Hero and its ilk. Super Mario Galaxy did sort of okay in this respect, albeit in a limited fashion. Of course, there are many Wii games that appeal to spouses, such as Wii Sports, Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, and countless other lesser titles. But those aren't the kinds of games I usually want to play. So what's a gaming-oriented guy to do? Enter Resident Evil 5.

The Horror Geek presents: First trailer of Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles

I forgot to post this yesterday, but just in case you missed it, here's the trailer for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles.

This Wii-exclusive is a sequel to the on-rails shooter Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles and promises to take players back to some classic Resident Evil environments and let them shoot hordes of flesh eating zombies while doing it.

Expect to waggle your Wii-mote at The Darkside Chronicles later this year.
