New Resident Evil On-Rails Shooter In The Works?

Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles

I’m starting to see a trend starting with the Wii that makes me quite uncomfortable. It started with Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles, and House of the Dead: 1&2. Then House of the Dead: Overkill released, which is a game that I bought and love. After its release, the news was announced that a Dead Space on-rails shooter was in development. Now, we have another speculated ‘on-rails’ shooter coming our way. See the trend?

Famitsu has released an article, and pictures of an upcoming Resident Evil game; Resident Evil: Darkside Chronicles. What isn’t completely known is what genre the game will actually be. Capcom hasn’t made an official statement yet, so until then it’s all speculation. Considering the word ‘chronicles’ is in the title, there’s more than a good chance it is an on-rails shooter.

Let’s just hope we don’t get another arcade shooter. I’m already sick of typing ‘on-rails’.

Ready 2 Rumble Revolution Gameplay Video

When I heard about Ready 2 Rumble Revolution yesterday I was a bit skeptical. The original sequel to the arcade style boxing game was less than impressive. After taking a gander at the video, my skepticism has turned into cautious optimism. Here’s hoping we’ll hear more details about the game soon.

House Of The Dead: Overkill Collector’s Edition

I’ve never been a huge fan of ‘Collectors Edition”, or “Special Editions”, or any other edition that makes the price of the game I want to play $10 or more. I’ve been good about not giving into any ‘edition’ games, because usually it’s a cheap plastic figurine or some yawn inducing making-of DVD. Also, why would I want a bigger box taking up much needed shelf space?

SEGA’s House of The Dead: Overkill might be the game that makes me break my rule. House of the Dead is one of my favorite arcade franchises. I was ecstatic when I heard they were bringing the 2nd and 3rd game to the Wii. Now, we get a brand new game in ‘Overkill’. What’s more is if you buy the Collector’s Edition of the game, you’ll get a graphic novel to go with it.

The graphic novel is a prequel to the actual game. The game and graphic novel follows the story of Agent Washington, and Varla Gunns as they try and survive a zombie attack on Bayou City. The graphic novel looks to have the kind of pulp style that I like. Going by the pictures, it looks like the case itself won’t have to be made all that much larger either.

The Collector’s Edition so far has only been confirmed for PAL territories. I expect a NA confirmation to come soon; it’s just too badass to only give one region.
