If you’re a fan of scary games, then you are certainly awaiting with baited breath (Which, actually sounds pretty gross when you think about it.  Baited breath?  Do you smell like worms and minnows? But I digress…) the release of Capcom’s newest in its perennial survival-horror series, Resident Evil 5.  However, those in the U.S. looking to get their hands on a demo will have to wait longer than thought previously, as the demo hitting the Xbox 360 next week is for Japan-only, says Earnest Cavalli, of Game|Life, over at WIRED.com:

“‘You wish!’ wrote Chris Kramer, Capcom’s senior director of communications, in response to an e-mail I sent him this morning asking if we’d be granted the same demo promised to Japanese gamers in the latest issue of Famitsu.”

However, while we may have to wait longer than hoped for the demo, the game is still on target for the intended release date of Friday the 13th, in March of 2009.  As soon as a demo hits, however, keep your eyes here as this is a title I definitely plan on previewing and reviewing later on.

Before I start with anything, this will be a work in progress.  My home computer cannot handle the game well due to only having onboard graphics as well as very low RAM.  So, my impressions will thus far be based upon the opening movie, the options, and the VERY jenky, VERY low framerate gameplay.

First off, I LOVE IT!  Even with a computer that makes it look like a one-fingered man is trying to use a flip-book to show me the game, and with all textures and resolutions on six-feet-under-low… This game is fun.  I mean really fun.
