The Resident Evil 5 Thread

Just picked it up today at a new Gamestop. Allot of people are saying Re4 is better based on the story; but I'm such a sucker for zombie games I had to have it no matter what the opinion of the game was. Plus, Im a RE fan anyways. I'll be picking up Shell Shock when it reaches the bargain bin which won't be long anyways because it has zombies.

The demo was alright I guess, but the real game is gonna be better I know for sure. Right now I'm waiting for the patch to come through (1.01), and the system hardware needed to be downloaded, so I'm waiting through that too. I leave for work in less then an hour. I'm so gonna be hyped till I get back home.

I'll make a prediction of who's gonna play the game:

Tozzy
Sic Simon
Lord-IVD
Manifesto

I'd put len on there put I don't think she likes the RE series.

Well the screenshots I've seen look absolutely amazing, RE4 was the shit and it can only get better, I mean don't get me wrong I doubt it will be a gears of war 2 or anything, but Ill be on it when it drops to $40 on the used rack.

I want to play RE5 so bad. I opted for a PC upgrade instead of a PS3, but we'll see, maybe soon.

I actually hate Resident Evil games.

I was forced to download and play the demo of Resi 5 on PS3 by a friend, we did some co-op on it. I absolutely hated it.

The control system sucks and is designed so fucking badly for no good reason, the movement is slow and irritating, the item selection system is shit and takes way too long to do anything for no good reason. It's just horribly irritating and annoying to play. Controlling your person is a real battle and I just hate that. It's supposedly a 'characteristic' of the game that it takes ten hours to turn and face your enemy, and it's one I really fucking hate.

I'd rather play left 4 dead and watch the story on youtube.

Ugh, the boss battles are kinda bad. They're cool enough but the goofy control layout hinders it so much. I don't like dying from not being able to control my character.

Graphics are good (supports 720p) which is what my tv gives, storyline is so-so so far.

They're missing the merchant though that says "What're ya buyin? What're ya Sellin?" instead we just have a period after chapters that lets us buy and sell. Sad, sad.

Within two chapters I've had four boss battles, a super powered townsfolk that drops 2K item, a Chainsaw wielding crazed townsfolk, a giant blob thing, and a giant bat. All very cool looking with unique ways to kill them (except those towns people bosses).

Again, I don't have 50 dollars to throw away; I know someone who will probably end up buying it anyways and I will probably end up playing it with them anyways.

So a quick summary:
Boss Battles: Wicked awesome. God of War epic stuff here.
Controls: Poor, but all RE games have that.
Graphics: Beautiful, but lacking somehow.
Storyline: Eh, I never really cared any RE story except for the OMG ZOMBIES part.
Puzzles: They're more like baby puzzles. It's only a matter of moving before you realize you missed something, instead of THINGS and MOVEMENTS. Very disappointed with the puzzles.
Voice Acting: It's pretty good, on par with the good stuff I guess.
Cut scenes: very good.
Outlandish stuff: lacking.

I think he's fucking Brad Pitt or something... There's no way Brad Pitt would have any time to post nowadays with the hot bitch wife, the artistic devout, and the 30 billion fucking kids. I feel for artists! Let those fuckers be!

Ahh being Irish Catholic and 75 percent Irish descent I can only relish in the knowledge that I know when he refers to the 'emerald Isle' he could only mean the place of my ancestors where all the smart people went to drink their insanity into bliss... fucking ancestry of slackers...

Not to be pestamistic. But Resident Evil 4 and 5 aren't actually suppose to contain re-animated corpses.

RE:4 has the Las Plaguas. Parasites that were delivered to DNA that altered genetic coding. Which was a nice touch by the way. It also held true to the Umbrella Corps. need for the super soldier and chemical war fare. So it stayed true to it's roots. I also feel other than RE: 1 Director's Cut, RE: 4 has to be the best so far.

At the end of Resident Evil: Degeneration, they kind of lead it up to RE:5 and they introduce TRYCEL. Seems interesting. I just really hope Wesker plays an important part. On top of that, I am pumped that Chris Redfield is back.

I feel as if the zombies of old have been played out and run into the ground. The slow paced, brain dead, deer in the head lights blank expression. They have been going strong since 68' with George A. Romero. Which was elite for it's time and paved the way for Resident Evil: Director's Cut.

I like the re-vamped re-animated corpses and the direction they are going in. Such as 28 Days later (rage virus/kind of like rabies), Planet Terror (runners and rushers) and Day Of The Dead (Parkour/ Free Running/ Ninja zombies). Especially Quarantine (rabies enduced) great film. I really enjoy how the undead line has evolved through the years.

Just hope they don't develop riga-mortus and stiffen up.

PSH. What are you on?

All the RE films are shite. Using them in the same sentence as Romero's works is blasphemy.
