    Anybody really excited for this game? I know I am, and it will be a must buy for me when it comes out Friday.

    Still debating on whether or not the collector's edition stuff is all worth it or if I should just buy the normal copy which is $30 cheaper.

    Anyways the game looks pretty good, I haven't had a chance to play it yet but I've heard good things so far.

    Great game no doubt, but like alot of other games it's single player online with not much replay value (unless you like playing a game over n over) so i'll wait until price drop just like other great single player games (Bioshock).

    I just changed my mind

    With Toys R Us giving a $20 giftcard with RE5 purchase and rumors swarming after Capcom leaked trophies that their maybe more online gametypes with a DLC including:

    Slayers
    Survivors
    Team Slayers
    Team Survivors
    Versus

    I hope Survivors is like Horde Mode on Gears 2 or Left 4 Dead because that would be sick. Here is the link and also if you click the link you see the leaked trophies

    http://www.joystiq.com/2009/03/10/resident-evil-5-dlc-adds-new-online-multiplayer-modes/

    though im not sure it's really a rumor, it sounds more like fact though Joystiq didn't provide a link

    As someone who has not got Gold, I'm quite glad that this game also comes with an offline co-op mode too.

    I'm really looking forward to it. The controls have been slated by many people who played the demo, but I actual found that the demo itself started on type D, rather than the RE4 inspired type A. Although I would prefer to switch the X and the A buttons around.

    I'm a bit disappointed that a lot of the workings and even sounds have seemingly been lifted straight from RE4. Also not sure on the Outbreak style active menu. I mean I understand what they were trying to do with it, I'm just not convinced it will be a positive addition.

    I'm getting the collectors edition. Looking forward to playing it with my fiance, whom is a total RE4 nut (although we both lement having to go back to non-Wii controls for this game).

    Versus sounds like co-op to you Darkprinny? Also a trophy saying you need to defeat 100 players using physical attacks.

    Either way with the $20 giftcard, I would buy it with or without any online.

    That sounds really good, hopefully 360 gets something similar soon. If not my friend has a PS3.

    I'm glad March break is close, I finally have time to game now without work and school in the way.

    it has mercinaries mode, similar to suvival, so doubt they will add a horde mode too.

    also mercinaries mode has co-op. like team survival.

    i am certainly stoked for this game, the demo left me with the urge to buy this at launch, but killzone 2 took all my gaming budget, so it looks like im going to have to wait a little under 2 months after release to get it, as a birthday gift

    survival mode is a little bit like horde mode, survive as long as possible in horde mode and kill as many zombies as you can in survival mode before the time runs out. yeah their different but still similar enough to compare IMO

    Capcom confirmed the new DLC and they are charging $5 for it :/

    So im not buying the DLC until I see some videos of how it works, but we'll see

    Also on another sad note the game isn't get spectacular reviews and have actually ended up more average/mediocre with a score of 85 so far with G4TV gaving it a 6/10.

    I'm still buying but I think i'll end up like RE4 better because from what I have read it's turning more into an action shooter and less survival horror. Kotaku even said half way through the game it turned from a Silent Hill type game to more of a Tomb Raider/Uncharted... That's gonna be weird...

    Copule of things,
    Might buy the DLC.
    GOING TO PICK MY COPY UP IN 5 MINS :) yay cant wait.
    i saw average of 85% aswell, and thought less than i hoped (as everyone was expecting spectacular. BUT 85% is far from average mediocre. which is around the 60% mark.)

    ANd finally yeh disspapointed that its not very scary, but neiterh was resident evil 4 really.

    i just hope onbe day they go back to REAL ZOMBIE. weve not got a real zombie horror game on 360. and havent had one for ages.

    Left 4 Dead not really a PROPER Game, its one of my fave games every but its just pure fun, no story, also NOT scary.
    that bikini zombie slayer crap is a joke.
    and i dont know any other zombie games. is there one?

    I know that in reality the average is really around 60 but how many games rated as a 60 were actually decent? Hardly any and that would depend on your own taste. Games rated 60 usually suck balls. By Average/Mediocre I mean "Decent". Usually decent games are around 80, the higher the better.

    g4tv can hardly be takes seriously, they gave it 3/5 but their reviews are a joke their liek 30 seconds long and they dont give any good reasons. i didnt see the review for re5 though, but i think its a kickass game either way. i'm almost dont with it actually, me and my buddy stayed up and played it for 10 hours.

    So far RE5 is fun, alot like RE4 of course but that stupid AI is annoying. She gets me killed sometimes because I have to save her all the time or she just flat out dies. She also blocks me alot when im trying to retreat in doorways.

    One other downside is so far the story is pretty damn weak. It's looking to be the most boring story of all the RE games. Even though im still on Act one it feels more like a normal shooter with no horror. It doesn't even feel like im fighting monsters outside of them splitting their heads open.

    But other than that it's still very fun and I have been playing non stop aside from taking a break to eat and shower.

    yeah the AI partner SUCKS, i jumped straight into veteran, not too hard IMO.

    anyway im sometimes pounced on by those split head dogs, and shes is standing on me but wont help. and i get my head trapped in its head, DEAD she just dont help , also a couple of times she as ran off to next checkpoint, in mid battle, while im behind, so when i get grabbed she is nowhere to be seen.

    few things about veteran iv noticed though, damage recieved seems unbalanced, sometimes an arrow, can kill me in 1 hit, but sometimes arrows, only do like half damage, a Dog can sometimes kill me almost instantly when sometimes it gives me a while. other than that its great
