Resident Evil 5 tomorrow!



Well, both me and my son Martin have got our pre-orders for RE5 in at our local Blockbuster. He's buying the PS3 version, (me the 360 version.)

Oddly enough I'm not that excited. I've begun to worry that I won't enjoy it! I just 'completed' Left 4 Dead (every level is available from the start of the game in single player mode, so you don't have to 'earn' the right to play them, they're just ...there.

Consequently, there is little satisfaction in 'completing' the game, (although it is a nice zombie shooter!)

I'll most likely be playing RE5 in single player mode and I just worry it will be a restriction to have Sheva as my AI companion... But I also don't want to miss out on the excitement that a lot of us here in the blogospherewill be playing the same game at the same time!

Anyhoo, you'll know my thoughts on the game soon enough! In the meantime enjoy the IGN review above...

We'll compare notes this week then Junlee!

See Nebacha? Portugal is a much netter place to live than the UK...

fatherkrishna said...

Have you anything to report about Madworld BJ?

As far as I know IGN is a gaming site dear Funnyman...

Well, L4D is a blast dear gnome, but it's no Resi 5...

oh MADWORLD is the finest gaming experience on the Wii, with that and HOTD: Overkill my faith in Wii gaming has been restored :D

I know dear father, BUT, L4D is mouse-compatible which in my book is a huge plus ;)
