Gametrailers have posted Episode 4 of their Resident Evil retrospective which is well worth watching if you are planning on picking up Resident Evil 5 and haven’t previously been a fan of the series, however before watching this one make sure you have watched Episodes 1,2 and 3.
There is a lot of great news being leaked about this game at the moment we all know that the first major obstacle it will have to cross are the racism claims being levelled at it and then only will we be able to truly judge the quality of the underlying game.
The racism claims were raised in the IGN podcast I was listening to last week and their point was that if gaming as an industry wants to be taken seriously then the claim that it’s just a game and nothing is meant by it cannot be taken seriously. If the genre wants to be on the same level as movies then it has to accept that it will be questioned and unless it can back up it’s visualisations it will be found wanting.
