If you missed out on the original version of “Resident Evil 5″ Capcom has you covered. In a few weeks they’ll be releasing an expanded version of the game packed with more characters, outfits, gameplay, and more. Check out the trailer to see just what you’ll be getting if you’re holding off on picking up the game. Thanks Capcom, you’ve proved my point that procrastination truly does pay off.
Alright, I know I’ve been going a little “Resident Evil 5″ crazy lately, but I can’t help it; it’s one of my favorite franchises, ever. As you, hopefully, now know, “Resident Evil 5″ releases tonight at midnight, and I have plans to get pretty far into the game before I give into the Sandman.
However, I’m not as excited about this game as I have been in the past, and there’s one big reason for this. Capcom’s released so much footage of the game, that anyone following closely enough, can decipher its plot. I implore you all, if you’ve been lucky enough to not watch the trailers thus far, DON’T START NOW! Now, obviously I can’t say that I am 100 percent sure of the game’s storyline, but I have a pretty solid guess, and I feel like I’m 98% sure. I won’t spoil anything for you guys, so don’t feel hesitant to read on, but I will say that someone from the franchises past returns. What I’m fumed about is that Capcom, and game journalists across the net, have already started to mention that this person will play a role in the game. Whether that person was appearing to us as a memory or an actual, living being was not, and has not been confirmed. However, when you watch the trailer, and there’s someone running around in a mask, and they’re seemingly fighting on the side you wouldn’t normally expect. This pisses me off, because had Capcom taken out those images of that person in the trailer, I would have been pleasantly surprised, as I played through it tonight. Instead you have a franchise fan who’s 98% sure the game won’t deliver on the surprise and emotion it might have evoked otherwise.
