New Resident Evil 5 details surface

Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi revealed new game details to popular Japanese gaming mag Famitsu this week including confirmation of Chris Redfield being the game's protagonist.

"What has happened to Chris during these 10 years? By showing his past, we can begin to unravel things that were not resolved in Resident Evil 4. In fact, Resident Evil 5 will retain most of its gameplay style [from Resident Evil 4] with some new features which I cannot talk about yet at this point," producer Takeuchi said.

Redfield, now said to work for an organization called BSAA, was sent to an unidentified location (presumably a prominent voodoo region as shown in the trailer) to engage in some investigatory journalism of a special case.

The producer commented that the game will make heavy use of light and darkness saying, "For example, as Chris enters a building, his eyes will gradually adjust to the dark indoors. The same can be said with the opposite where stepping out from a dark place would cause glare to his eyes."

Some other minor plot details were also divulged. "The enemies this time are not zombies nor are they Los Ganados either, but are quite smart, human-like creatures. One of the main themes in this game is that Chris is fighting for a cause that is not really clear. Is he fighting for good or evil?"

Resident Evil 5 hits both PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime in 2008.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
