Remember when it was first announced that Resident Evil 5 wasn't coming to the Wii, and fans got really upset, because Resident Evil 4 on the Wii was totally awesome? It seems that decision wasn't made due to Capcom's oversight of said awesomeness -- rather, it looks like they chose to bring that e...

Well, maybe featuring Jill is not quite accurate -- "it's gonna be, uh, at least, somewhat involving Jill Valentine," confirms voice of Jill, Patricia Ja Lee, fresh from recording new voice and perhaps mocap work for Resident Evil 5: Director's Cut. That's right: Resident Evil 5: Director's Cut. I...

No, that's not a screen from Joystiq Publishing's upcoming actioner, Vanessa and The Bear ("Half Accounts Receivable Temp, Half Sadomasochist, All Hero!") It's actually a pair of the new costumes you'll able to get if you pick up the upcoming Resident Evil 5 PC release. We've just got one question...

Many gamers didn't respond well -- it's an outrage! -- to Capcom's plan to offer Resident Evil 5's Versus Mode as post-release DLC. It's easy to see why: The new, premium gameplay modes have been released less than a month after the retail game. Should Capcom have waited a bit longer to unveil the...

Finally. Not a day goes by that we don't play Resident Evil 5 and think, "Man, this would be better with Muppets." Seemingly hearing our mental prayers, IGN and Black20 Studios have created Jim Henson's Resident Evil 5. It's pretty much exactly what you'd expect: Resident Evil 5 -- with Muppets. O...

Capcom has revealed that Resident Evil 5's Versus DLC will be available in Japan on April 9th, and not this week, as previously reported. Could this be in response to anger over the DLC, an attempt by Capcom to let some extra time heal the wounds? Who knows, but Capcom has confirmed the Versus pac...

A new U2 album released in the UK last week, but nobody really noticed, because they were too busy jaunting through bright, deadly Africa in Capcom's Resident Evil 5. As if besting megastar Bono wasn't a big enough accomplishment -- watch your back, Chris and Sheva; Bono doesn't like being number ...

Click to El Gigante size As if compelled by some otherworldly force, hundreds of gamers converged last night at San Francisco's Union Square. Of course, they weren't some kind of brainwashed zombie parasite-controlled mob -- they were there for Capcom's latest act of large-scale fan service, the Re...

If you're near London's Trafalgar Square on March 12 and find some severed body parts, you could be a winner. (As long as they're fake and zombie-like, otherwise ring the police.) Capcom's wacky UK marketing folk have decided to hide the parts -- arms, legs, torsos and heads -- about the area as ...

Shh! Don't move or you'll scare it away. It's a red Resident Evil 5 Xbox 360 console, seen here in its natural retail habitat at a Target store in Pembroke Pines, Florida. Note its orange "DO NOT SELL BEFORE 3.13.09" markings. It's a sure identifier of this particular 360 species. And even though we...

The British Board of Film Classification does not see an "issue around racism" in a particular Resident Evil 5 scene that may be considered inflammatory. Kikizo asked the BBFC's communication head, Sue Clark, about a specific scene where a (*minor spoiler warning*) white, blond woman is dragged by...

With all this debate about "outmoded" tank controls versus shiny, new space engineer controls, everyone's seem to have lost track of what keeps us crawling back to the Resident Evil franchise, sequel after sequel. Hint: it's not the controls. It's the incredible storytelling. For example, haven't ...
