Posted in Video games with tags , , , , , , , , on July 16, 2008 by trevdog54

Resident Evil 5 will feature online co-op. That’s right folks, we get to cap some zombie fodder online with a buddy in Capcom’s latest installment to their epic survival horror series. Resident Evil 5 puts Chris Redfield, Resident Evil 1’s main protagonist and Resident Evil: Code Veronica’s supporting character, in the middle of Africa, where an ‘outbreak’ has occured.

The game retains Resident Evil 4’s control scheme, where we get an over-the-shoulder control and aiming mechanism. Also, RE5 supports a lot of environmental interactivity where you can shoot off exploding barrells, walls and such to your advantage. The brand new zombies in the demo appeared to be much more mobile and fierce compared to previous titles. From what we have seen, Capcom brings us yet another Game of the Year contender like their masterpiece, Resident Evil 4. Resident Evil 5 will be launching worldwide on March 13, 2009 – yes, that’s Friday, the 13th – kitchen knives out!

In addition to the recently announced community avatar feature for Xbox Live, Major Nelson brings us more details in what to expect this fall. Through a system update, here are the latest feature Xbox Live has to offer:

  • Play from hard drive. Copy your games from the game disc and play directly from the hard drive. Not only will the drive not spin, but load times are quicker, as well. Of course, you will still need the disc in the tray to prove you own the game.
  • Access Xbox LIVE Marketplace on the Web. Browse and purchase Marketplace content whenever you want from Xbox.com and it downloads automatically to your console. Purchase that new map, television episode, the latest Xbox LIVE Arcade game or set up a movie to watch when you get home from work.
  • Dashboard built into the new Xbox Guide. For everyone who loves the blades interface, it’s not going away; they are now built directly in to the new Xbox guide. Every feature and option is available right from the guide. You can even access your full games library at all times. No matter where you are (in dash or in game), immediately call up your games played list and directly launch a game. Continue reading
