GBU game review – Resident Evil 5

From Wikipedia

So I’ve been slacking a bit lately and lurker has been cracking the whip.  Ok so he’s been nicely asking me to throw up a GBU for a recent game I’ve played.  Best pseudo boss ever LOL.  So I’ve been playing Resident Evil 5 lately as a break from Prototype.  I’ve heard all the hype about this game being a first person race war shooter.  White guys against black guys.  Unfortunately the people who review these games at first glance don’t usually remember or care about the back story.  The progenitor virus which was the Umbrella Corporations big breakthrough in regeneration of dead cells started as a discovery in the heart of Africa, where as it so happens most of the people living there are indeed of African decent.  I just hate that people jump to the conclusion that it was a race related game when all they got to see was a demo that happened to have a  bunch of black zombies being killed by a white guy and a black girl.

So whatever let’s do a good bad ugly.

GOOD:  The game play is reminiscent of resident evil 4, game play and controls are basically what you are already used to.  The AI for your smoking hot helper who has a very nice accent is very advanced.   She can be set to cover you to be aggressive or to hold.  And bonus if you destroy the B.S.A.A emblems through the whole game she has a separate outfit that she wears SMOKIN!  Also the storyline to this one brings a lot of the series to a conclusion of sorts.  The ending which I won’t ruin is very surprising.

BAD: Ammo is scarce except on the easiest level forcing you to shoot a bad guy once and punch them for a finish, which to me isn’t as gratifying as shooting things.  However its nothing that isn’t expected.  All Resident Evil games have ammo spaced few and far between.  I still wish I could spray and pray instead of sniping with a pistol.

UGLY:  The Lickers come back.  I HATE LICKERS!  No really I hate the freaking Lickers.  Worst B.O.W.S ever made.

Micheal Jackson’s Ghost Video!

Mannn. We do love out ghost and other sci-fi stuff around here. So when I heard about this on the radio man, I had to check it out. You can see a dark form crossing across the hallway. Now maybe people will say it’s a shadow from the camera person, or something to “rationalize” it out but I wont. Ghosts. Proof Positive. Fitting Micheal Jackson is the first ghost. King of pop and king of ghosts. 🙂
