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 need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
