I wanted to make a thread similar to the street fighter iv and killzone thread to discuss the upcoming resident evil game.

Main reason for wanting to have a dedicated thread is that I've added some cool people from the sfiv thread and seeing as resi 5 will be co-op I thought it would be good to add some fellow hotukdeals zombie killers.

so who's getting the game?

Which platform?

Limited or standard edition??

I shall be getting it on 360, but I'm also getting Hawx, so have no idea which game will be dominating my weekend, as I kinda like Halo Wars too.
#3
Can't wait to get it - loved RE4

Do I have to be a gold member to download the 360 demo? Will a one-month account work?

Nope, I'm currently on silver and downloaded it last week :thumbsup: (Edit - come to think of it I think I downloaded it with my new account so with the free one month)

Think you can download it on silver, only restraint is that silver members have to wait a week after the gold members get the content

I thought the demo was appalling and I have lowered my expectations of the game as a result. I might pick it up when the price drops, but no way am I paying full whack based on that demo. The partner (and zombie) AI was laughable.

Yeh can't wait to get the standard edition on the 360. The great demo, excellent AI and controls are the main reasons i'm getting the game.

totally agree, I found it barely playable which is a pity as the graphics were excellent. I'll wait until the reviews and even then i'll rent it.

the game has been reviewed in full...can be found on official playstation magazine..(US or JAP)..got 5 out of 5

there are some videos and stuff you probably havnt seen, because they are from a japanese (?) member.
i stumbled across them and theyre new.

please play resident evil 4 if you'd really like to get to grips with 5. many people are complaining about the stopping and aiming etc etc...most of the features have been standard throught the entire series

the game is not a walk in the park..nor is it meant to be as easy as picking up the pad. that was resident evil 4.
this one jumps right at ya with a pretty hard setting plus managing +1 which is a pi** take in itself i hated having to babysit ashley around.

FYI - search engines are your friends :-)

Much more sober review in the Official Playstation Magazine (UK) - they have give it 80%

In too many ways this is identical to the last game. That's not necessarily a bad thing - "RE4" is one of the greatest games ever made because it rewrote the rules for action games, setting a template for everything from "Dead Space" to "Dark Sector." Because of that this is still a damn near essential purchase. It's just a shame that the lack of evolution means it occasionally feels like it's lagging behind the very competitors it inspired.


.......if that is the 'official' line...............:whistling:

i just dont get it. all the resident evils before resident evil 4 were the bloody same anyway! so what the heck is his point about 5 being like 4? why change a winning formula?
resi 4 was wayyyyyyy ahead of its time. resi 5 is now taking advantage of that with the updated tech/play.

the game isnt supposed to be a complicated premise..shoot some zombies, solve some puzzles, shoot some more zombies. what the heck did they want changing?

did gears 2 evolutionise from 1?
street fighter 4 from 2?
call of duty 5 from call of duty's?
etc etc

all games were updated in the graphics department, smoother gameplay, bigger bosses bigger weapons.

this game is the same! heck if this was a remake of 4 with better graphics and smoother gameplay id still go buy it.


anyway...moving on to the racism bit..

well, alot of games can be up for question about this. its a shame they had to pick on this just cos...'it is black..innit!'

street fighter 4 is said to be mocking most religions out there. this has to do with Akuma and his sign which shines on the back of his top. its meaning in japanese and its relevance is a mockery to most religions.....

just cos hes dark skinned means no one wants to pick up on it! selctive racism eh!"

These game threads are really catching on, I'll be getting the game so I can play co-op with you stu.
#23
i'll be getting re5. its pre ordered and all. RE4 was one of my fav games ever. 5 doesn't seem to quite live up to it and i don't know why(going by the demo anyway). I'm hoping that'll change when i get into it. Here's hoping!

Nice one!
it'll be good to work together rather than get my a*se kicked on street fighter... AGAIN.

:thumbsup:
#25
Well guess what, it's been leaked so expect many people playing this early. Who's playing it?
#26
I have completed the 1st part of chapter 1 - The controls are ok but I wish there was a faster way to do the equipment stuff because the game does not pause when you open the inventory so it can be hard to give your team mate ammo/herbs etc mid-fight.

I will be playing more later/tomorrow so i'll let you know as I get further into the game.
#27
In a state of confusion i've just cancelled my pre-order. The demo was pretty good, plus it will no doubt be a solid title that gets generally positive reviews (IGN UK 8.8 is my guess by the way!).

It has been playing on my conscience that I simply don't feel it's an essential purchase anymore.

Edit: Amusingly two people are broadcasting themselves playing through the whole game on Justin.tv at the moment...

thanks for the heads up! cant believe its been leaked! im watchingi it now...looks EPIC!!

I'll be getting it for the 360. I have been waiting for this game for soooo long.
I love Resi Evil! :-D

I haven't played the demo or anything. I want it to be a total surprise lol.
#30
loved the demo, loved the whole series so far, downloaded this earlier and been playing it since, well, i stopped to play fifa world cup with the HUKD guy's but my bro carried on on the other setup...

Hawks ROCKS! Swapped to playing this for the past couple of hours, it is really good. really, really good... Benefits of an already banned box, non stealth firmware so it plays anything you throw at it!! :p
#31
Should be playing this later today if anyone wants to do co-op.
#32
jealous!
#33
I defeated the first boss and I love the game, only just found out about the quick switching and it helps a lot :P

Has anyone noticed that whenever you pick up handgun ammo yourself you get 10 bullets but if your partner picks it up she only gets 5? It might just be better to pick it all up yourself and give your partner some.
#34
Just downloading it now :whistling:
#35
I was undecided about the demo, found it really hard to get headshots, suppose it something that takes some getting use to. Think I'm gonna let it drop from £29 though.
#36
I have bought the console deal don't want the game but will not be able to trade as it will no doubt have been spoilt by having bundle copy written on it. So I will keep it sealed incase I want to sell on the Jasper EIite if it is still too noisy for my liking, like all my other xbox 360's are.

Yeah i found headshots hard at first
First i did was speed up the aiming, makes it a little easier
#38
If headshot are difficult then that chainsaw guy will be a pain, you have to shoot him in the eye 'cus that's his weak spot.

When watching the feed on Justin.tv someone mentioned your partner is unable to throw grenades as well. I guess they had to remove the ability to prevent them throwing them at ill advised opportunities.

If RE5 was £29.99 at GAME/Gamestation I would consider picking it up as I could use a trade in. Unfortunately I need to save as much as possible for an imminent stag-do so I will have to do without :whistling:
#40
The handgun ammo varies, sometimes I only pick up 5 too so I guess it doesn't matter.

I've just killed the chainsaw "boss" - really easy, you can just keep shooting him in the face with a shotgun/rifle while he is on the stairs while your partner shoots zombies behind you... of course I only realised this after 2-3 deaths trying to kite him around and get perfect eye shots :P
