It’s 2011 and most of us have left the horrifying events of September 1998 behind us, but every time we think we’re out, Capcom drags us kicking and screaming back to Racoon City. Which, funnily enough, is exactly what’s going to happen in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Players are once again tossed back into the zombie pit, this time as part of the Umbrella clean-up crew sent in to purge the city, where they will have to deal with all of the usual undead mayhem along with another team sent by the government to stop you.
At this stage in the story the events in Racoon city are so developed and transparent we at PCM are expecting an intricate story woven around the events of the previous titles. We’re talking cameos and many nods for the die-hard fans of the series and if we don’t get them we’ll be terribly upset. Our list of demands includes:
- Slow, shambling Zombies.
- Nemesis and Birkin’s Tyrant.
- Ada, Claire and Jill.
- Leon Kennedy’s head on a plate. (Seriously, we hate him)
The ball is in your court now Capcom. Pop Culture Monster has spoken and if you don’t listen then zombies aren’t the only things we’ll be hunting, ‘kay? Just sayin’.
The game will be available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, with a release date to be announced.
Edit: As we broke this the teaser trailer happened. So here that is:
Football. The beautiful game, right? Nay. Up until now we thought the only thing more boring than watching football was playing football games. But Footballtainment is determind to introduce us to a whole new level of hell. That’s right, move over Treachery; Welcome to the Tenth Circle as we introduce you to “Football Referee”. The game will allow players to make calls on the events of a match and will come with a guide to being a ref. The game will be available to download for free, for anyone who enjoys injections and long, romantic walks over broken glass. If you want to keep updated on this title and find out its release date we suggest you see a specialist.
