The Games "Rain" Down Pretty "Heavy" In 2009

So it’s a new year, with a lot of promises in gaming. All of the consoles are seasoned veterans now, with at least a handful of good titles to back them up. Each system has a customer base large enough to merit new, big games and each has a form of digital distribution where new, smaller or independent games can reach the customer. So it’s an exciting time overall to be into games, to be sure.

So what’s coming down the pipe? What are you interested in seeing?

For me, there’s a handful of really interesting games that have been promised in 2008, and all of them look to be very good. Here’s my most anticipated games list for 2009: Read the rest of this entry »

RE5 Demo Drops Next Week…In Japan. (Sigh.)

Chris Redfield just found out.  Hes a little angry.

Chris Redfield just found out. He's a little angry.

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.
