Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City coming in March to Australia and New Zealand

Latest addition to popular survival horror franchise to be released with additional Heroes Mode

The local release of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 has been set for March 23 across Australia and New Zealand.

According to THQ, the local distributor for Capcom products, the PC version of the game is expected to soon follow the console release.

Set during the events of Resident Evil 2 and Resident Evil 3: Nemesis that were originally released on the Sony PlayStation in 1998 and 1999 respectively, Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City is a third person team-based shooter in the vein of the Resident Evil Outbreak game released on the PlayStation 2 in 2003.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City marks the first time a team-based Resident Evil game can be played online in Australia and New Zealand, as the PAL version of Resident Evil Outbreak had its online support removed.

With the announcement of the local launch comes the confirmation of another online competitive multiplayer mode, dubbed Heroes Mode, which will be included with the game. In Heroes Mode, players will be able to compete in four vs. four matches with classic Resident Evil characters including Leon. S Kennedy, Jill Valentine, Hunk and Ada Wong.

Players compete against each other in a battle for survival by either assuming the role of the good or bad guys, and need to keep an eye out for zombies and B.O.Ws while attempting to defeat the opposing team.

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

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
