Desperate Escape will be the second episode to be released, it comes out two weeks after LiN. This episode tells the story of how Jill escaped the Umbrella compound after being saved by Chris. She teams up with Josh and the two fight their way to escape. This episode seems like an extension of RE5.

New locations and scenarios!

Awesome thread. Cheap price too!

I would only get the mansion DLC and nothing else. What happened to Arc functionality?

the expansion packs looks great.  and 5 bucks each is a steal.

costume packs are one of the things that piss me off the most about this generation of games

Oh man this is going to be soooooooo AWESOME! I'm definitely going to grab all that dlc. I'm just undecided on if I want to just simply download it or spend the extra coin and grab it all on disk.

Not included, the arc delay screwed it up.  Maybe down the road they patch in support.

Why? LOL I still haven't beaten RE4. I don't feel compelled in the slightest to go back and finish it. It didn't do much for me.

I know, I know. I am beyond help.

I just automatically do that when someone doesn't play an awesome major blockbuster game. Anyway I see you have deeper issues than playing RE5.

If you didn't like RE4, I dont see what RE5 would do for you. Maybe you would like the first new episode if you liked old RE.

I did like it. It just wasn't enough for me to keep me hooked to it long enough to finish it. And I was about 3 or 4 hours short of seeing the end of it. Perhaps it's more about laziness right now. Now that I remember, I didn't like the RE5 demo very much either. Yeah. It might be better saving up that dinero for Red Dead Redemption.

You were clearly destined to be a FIDE World Chess Champion, instead.

He has a cunning strategy of hoping I can't remember a blindfold position for two weeks.

(Which, by the why, without looking at our moves, our game is 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6 3. d4 Nf6 4. dxc5 dxc5 5. Qxd8+).

Steel, you made the right choice dodging RE5 it sounds like.

RE4 is like the best paced game ever, if you can't beat that, well RE5 is just going to be played for 3 hrs and turned OFF.

Permanently.

Eurogamer review


http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/resident-evil-5-lost-in-nightmares-review

Instead of fighting a relentless, repetitive rearguard action against the Majini hordes, the emphasis switches back to the more thoughtful, slow-burn, explorative style of old. The change of direction and the slower pace instantly cranks up the atmosphere several notches as you creep tentatively through darkened corridors, expecting a slavering apparition to burst through cobwebbed windows at any moment. Occasionally these moments arrive right on cue, but most of the fear comes from the sheer anticipation of it all. Moments of panic-stricken violence are saved for later.

9/10
