NEWS: 26.01.09 Games Aktuell Resident Evil 5 preview!

Games Aktuell has released one hell of a preview of Resident Evil 5. They released info that may be considered as spoilers by some, so be warned.

The stages of RE5

The magazine indicates that the whole thing starts in the shanty town area we've seen in all the videos. In that area, you have to barricade yourself inside a building and fight off a huge crowd that is trying to kill you and your partner. Things go south when a maniac with an axe shows up (the Executioner).

The fight continues all over the village and there seems to be no end to it. Eventually you learn that you must keep at it until help arrives.

The next new area you'll see are the sewers. You'll find some surprises down there. As well as a new enemy.

From there you'll drop by the Kijuju sea port. Then you'll visit the local mining area where you'll have to deal with Popocarim. Basically, a giant mutant bat thingy.

Fast forward to a motorcycle chase scene on the Sahara desert. If you live long enough, you end up face to face with a fugitive from RE4 (see image below).

The blonde girl in red

Games Aktuell talks a bit about Allyson, the blonde girl seen in previous RE5 trailers. If you want to read what happens to her, just highlight or select the following text: {Basically, this happens. She yells for help and Chris runs to rescue her. Alas, she's infected with the Las Plagas parasite and you can pretty much guess what happens next...}

RE5 goes PC

The mag also confirms that RE5 will not only be released for PC but that it will happen in the first Q4 of '09.

Jill Valentine... dead?

Select the following text: {The magazine states that the game begins with Chris dealing with the sad memory of Jill Valentine's death.}

Limited Action

The writers at Games Aktuell complained long and hard about the hybrid nature of RE5. It tried to be similar to Dead Space and Gears of War but never went all the way. That made them feel a bit disappointed about not being able to move while shooting or being able to punch or hit things without having to wait for the action button to flash on screen. Well, I guess they'll just have to deal with that.

I think that's enough spoilers for now...

NEWS: 26.01.09 Spanish Magazine RE5 preview!

Spanish gaming magazine Hobby Consolas has published a new Resident Evil 5 preview in their latest issue.

The publication, claims that Sheva tags along with Chris for a good chunk of the game. And it seems that only Sheva can gain access to certain areas that appear to be off-limits to Chris.

The magazine mentions a few secondary characters. Such as Josh Stone who is the leader of Delta Squad and mad scientist Irving, who the main protagonists are trying to capture during the first part of the game. The preview also includes some nifty screenshots that may be new to some.

Not everything is brand new, though. Hobby Consolas offers some info that was already covered by other publications days and weeks before. Like being able to use vehicles and the different modes of gameplay.

Something worth mentioning about the preview, is that the editors felt the need to write down their opinion of RE5. They basically think the game is extremely similar to RE4. So many gameplay elements have been lifted directly from the last entry of the series that they branded RE5 as a hi-def "remake" of RE4. But before you get the wrong idea, they believed that such elements were good to begin with and had been vastly improved upon. So there.

For a quick look at the scans of the magazine, just follow the link below:

NEWS: 22.01.09 Resident Evil 5 News update (January '09 - Vol. I)!

Here we go with yet another news update related to the game that will totally own 2009, Resident Evil 5... read on!

RE5 Cutscenes Director interview
There is this new interview exclusive to Fidgit.com with Jim Sonzero, who is the man in charge of creating all the cinematic cutscenes included in RE5.

The interview touched a few issues, including the controversy about RE5 being racist...

Jim Sonzero: "There were some rumblings about it being racist or whatever, but it's set in Africa and there's going to be proportionally more black zombies than white zombies.

It if was set in South America, or like Resident Evil 4, you'd see more Latinos. And it was balanced in terms of casting a black female lead.

I don't feel there was anything wrong with it...I was a little concerned myself when I first saw the concept, but when I saw how it was balanced out, and when I saw the actual realities of the story, it made sense".

Mr. Sonzero also mentioned that he had to tone down the "cheese" factor present in the original script handed to him by the Japanese writers. The script included 48 scenes (martial arts sequences, horror sequences and dramatic sequences) that made up for almost an hour of content.

He also explained the truth about the generic enemies known as Majini.

Jim Sonzero: "The new version of the zombies are not dead, but they are infected with a virus. It's like a strange parasite that lives in their spinal cord, the majini. So they're not really dead. When you blow their heads off, a giant scorpion...thing...is exposed as what's inside them. How it's passed from one majini to another is by taking this parasite and forcing it down someone throat. It's an evolution for the zombies".

The director also let out of the bag some details about Albert Wesker. It seems that this character is doing the typical evil-guy thing this time around. Wesker is trying to unleash a virus to the world and the good guys try to stop him. See? The typical stuff that would make Dr. Evil proud.
