199w ago - TheBBPS nominates who they want to play who in the coming fourth installment of the popular Resident Evil film franchsie, entitled Resident Evil: Afterlife, as follows:
Whether or not you like her character, this one's already been confirmed. The sultry Milla Jovovich will be reprising her role as the sexy asskicking genetically engineered supersoldier, Alice.
Since as of now Alice has been the only confirmed returning character, everyone from here on is either rumored or made up by yours truly.
Fans of the films may have noticed that Jill Valentine was surprisingly absent from Resident Evil: Extinction. In fact, it was like she never even existed. Apparently, due to scheduling conflicts with the dreadful Eragon film, Sienna had to decline when asked to reprise her role as Jill.
For Extinction, the writers completely left Jill out of the story to make it possible to bring her back in later films. And since I think it's safe to assume that we won't be seeing more Eragon in the near future, there's a good chance Sienna will be returning in Afterlife.

Rumors have been circulating for awhile now that Resident Evil 4's main protagonist may be appearing in the fourth Resident...
201w ago - Today, Capcom announced that North American PC gamers will be able to get their hands on Resident Evil 5 on September 15th.
European PC owners will have to wait three extra days, or September 18th, to get their hands on the game.
To quote: The PC version will have a couple of additional things from the console versions -- chiefly, stereoscopic 3D, as well as new costumes and "new and improved" mercenary mode that boasts three times as many enemies.
Capcom promised that "more details" will be available on the PC version of RE5 in the coming months.
206w ago - According to both Tawkn (linked above) as well as users on the GameSpot Forums, the Resident Evil 5 Patch 1.03 is now available and apparently it has removed gamesave protection so users can back them up.
To quote: Fire up Resident Evil 5 and you will be prompted to download the 38MB v1.03 patch. But what has changed?
Well, the only thing I noticed so far is that saved game data is no longer copy-protected! This is a huge, huge plus in my eyes.
Its extremely useful to me. Like I said I have two PS3's and I didnt feel like beating the game all over again just so I could play it in the other room. Why copy protect something that just hinders the people who bought it?
208w ago - Capcom's Project Manager Matt Dahlgren announced today that Resident Evil: Director's Cut (PSOne) will be hitting PSN tomorrow:
Today I get to blog about the PSone Resident Evil: Director's Cut, which will be available for download tomorrow on PSN for $9.99.
I don't think I'll ever get to make a statement like this in a blog ever again.
The original Resident Evil is a game that defined my personality as a gamer for years to come. (I've got two others on my list of influential games, FF7 and Tekken, each for their respective genre - but I'll keep this RE centered.)
The early experiences that you have in gaming set you up for what to expect in the future. If you have a positive enough experience, you attempt to find it time and time again - but I don't think a game will ever affect me in the same way that this one did.
Going back and tinkering around with this game after so many years off got me thinking about how different gaming was 10 years ago in comparison to today. Games back then were hard. I remember dying at the first zombie while trying to figure out a weird control scheme, yet being mesmerized with the fact that I could control the outcome in a 3D environment.
It took me a while to get the grasp of everything, and I died...
