Happy Belated Birthday President Lincoln! Now Let’s Slay Some Vampires!

15 02 2012

Holy shit!  Happy belated birthday former President Abraham Lincoln!

With the newest Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter trailer up, you’ve become one of the most badass presidents to walk the face of God’s green earth.  I can’t wait to see this true documentary of your life.  Love also to FDR American BadAss.

Game over man! I think not!

3 02 2012

Just saw these hot little trailers, so I thought I’d drop some bombs on you…you know I mean from orbit…’cuz its the only way to be sure. Now if I have said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: I love the Aliens property as well as Predator franchise and by extension the AvP mythos. To me there is no greater villain in the entirety of the galaxy than the Xenomorph and no greater hunter than the Yautja (even if they get their asses handed to them in EVERY movie). And there has to be something said for the atmosphere. Darkness, shadows and fading forms of light blend together to create this almost claustrophobic strangle hold on your mind even though you could be standing in a giant warehouse. I LOVE this. Which is why I have high hopes going into 2012, waiting for Aliens:Colonial Marines to come out. So from outer space, to me, and back to you, I give you this:

and

Coming out in Q2 2012, you know where you can find me!

It’s Time To Honor Franklin D. Roosevelt. FDR: American Badass!

22 01 2012

For too long the history books have been squed to hide the truth about the Nazis.  Well not anymore, those filthy werewolf loving polio infecting Nazis get what’s coming to them in “FDR: American Badass”.  With the Delano 2000 beneath him, FDR plans to shoot all of their fuzzy little faces off.  I can’t wait to see this movie…no really, this is a real movie.

Let’s Talk Briefly About Resident Evil 6

22 01 2012

I didn’t want to jump right onto the “New Resident Evil 6 Trailer and Release Date” bandwagon right out of the gates.  So I waited patiently for two days in deep contemplation about my possible excitement for this title.  Because I’ve been a huge fan of the Resident Evil series since the teams first venture into the Umbrella Corporation’s mansion and secret lab (SPOILER!), that is, until Resident Evil 4.  Thought of as one of the strongest titles in the series, I disliked it the most until RE5 hit the scene.  The story of Resident Evil 4 was incredible, keeping the Resident Evil mystery and lore as the strength of the series.  I unfortunately didn’t like the direction the mechanics and zombies had taken.  Games evolved, Gears of War, Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid 4  and others adopted the evolution of  shooting while moving.  Resident Evil 5 lacked this evolutionary formula, combine that with a clunky co-op AI, RE5 was also thrown to the wayside.  I agree, professional marksmen can’t sprint and shoot accurately, but I know they can walk and shoot accurately.  Standing still to shoot while people are sprinting at me like they have the “Rage” virus from 28 Days Later is just not an option.  I understand it does add to the “Survival Horror” aspect, but limiting me during combat to add difficulty is a lazy way to make a game and leads to frustration and poor reception.  These observations and opinions will be debated for years to come among the Resident Evil faithful, I don’t expect them to stop at me.  

All is not lost though, I am pleased to see during Capcom’s Resident Evil 6 trailer not only shooting while moving but the return of  both Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy. 

I do forget that some of us haven’t heard about the Resident Evil 6 news, so let me enlighten you on what we know so far.  Resident Evil 6 will make it’s way to Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on November 20th, 2012.  Can I be a hater a little more?  Don’t expect RE6 to come out at this date, Capcom is notorious for delaying this series, I don’t believe that RE6 was kept a secret until now and will be ready in 11 months.  I just don’t see it happening.  Back on topic, RE6 will be taking place all over the world.  Expect to see Chris Redfield as part of the BSAA (Bioterrorism Security Assessment Allience) dealing with a possible outbreak in China, Leon Kennedy ,unable to protect the President, heads to a T-Virus infected Raccoon City or Tall Oaks, I’m unsure which one and the new addition of a  fast paced unamed mercenary. 

Note, every playable character will have a partner with them, you will never be alone, and sources from xbox.com hints to up to 6 person online co-op. 

Mutated humans, tech heavy monsters, fast paced action sequences, multiple locales, a deep plot and the return of the T-Virus, Resident Evil 6 is taking back to it’s roots and looks to be heading in the right direction.  The series has gone in many different directions and I expect even more details and changes to occur before this installment hits store shelves.  It’s been 7 years since I’ve been excited for a Resident Evil title, let’s hope RE6 doesn’t let me down.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Multiplayer Trailer

15 01 2012

Curious about what Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City is all about?  See what it’s like doing Umbrella’s job in this pretty impressive trailer detailing each multiplayer mode.

  • Team Attack: Seems to be the general Deathmatch rules, whoever kills the most wins.
  • Biohazard: Escort samples of the G-Virus to the base.  I don’t know exactly what that entails but I would say it’s safe to assume that it’s a capture the flag type mode.
  • Survivors: Stay alive until a chopper arrives to rescue you.
  • Heroes: Escort your iconic character to win.  From the trailer it looks like you’ll have the ability to be Chris Redfield, Claire Redfield, Leon Kennedy and even Ada Wong. 

With random zombies everywhere, breakable grapples, brutal executions and plenty of game modes to choose from, RE: ORC is shaping up to be an action packed experience.  Expect to see it hit store shelves for PS3 and Xbox 360 March 20th of this year.
