With Resident Evil 6 launching today, Capcom pulled one awesome PR stunt, by opening a temporary “human meat” butcher shop in London, with all kinds of human looking meats and body parts on display.
The newest film entry based (very loosely) on the video games is out now, just in time for the Halloween season. The film promises to be the best yet, bringing back old characters, and introducing a few fan favorites. But is that enough to appease fans? This series hasn’t exactly been very true to the games, and garnered a lot of less than positive reviews. But how does this one do? Is it a decent zombie flick, or should it be contained as a bio-hazard?
From some of the comments left on IHC’s Resident Evil Revelations review, I’m glad to know that I wasn’t the only one that swore off Resident Evil forever after the suckfest that was RE 5. But apparently Revelations was good, so maybe the series hasn’t completely fallen overboard yet.
An unfinished port of Resident Evil for the Gameboy Color was recently leaked. The game is buggy, and supposedly too easy thanks to an infinite ammo supply, but thanks to efforts by the community, there are already fan generated hacks that make the game more or less completable.
Ok, so it’s a game that has been out for almost 7 years. But in this day in age where fancy HD remakes are so prevalent, it’s taken Capcom long enough to hop on the train. Now they’ve released Resident Evil 4 HD, a high def version of the game that rejuvenated the series, and made several drastic changes to the franchise. Was it a good choice, though? Does it show its age, or is completely worth the price tag?
Resident Evil 4 has been released for every console on the planet, with the exceptions being Vectrex and Xbox 360. However, that is about to change! This September, Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil Code Veronica X will be released in stores and on Xbox Live for just $20 or 1600 MS points!
