I know, that is why I said the newer version. Never played the original triology.

I thought the new version had the original trilogy on it as well? If it does, you should consider getting it and playing the original trilogy.

It does have the original triology built-into the game. I just havent gotten around to getting them yet. I really need to break out my SNES...

I broke it out a year or so ago and went back and played Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, Super Metroid, Ninja Gaiden Trilogy, etc. etc. Such great games... Such fun times.

So... yeah... anyway... Ninja zombies would be scary as hell.

Since RE4:Wii will have auto lock-on with the knife, the Krauser fight should be cake.

Anyone seen the trailer for Umbrella Chronicles yet?
http://media.wii.ign.com/media/827/827187/dl_1961467.html

I'm not crazy about light gun shooters, but this game looks pretty good. Check out the zombie around the 0:21 mark. It's pretty freaky turning your head with that 1st person view and seeing that staring you in the face.

Umbrella Chronicles launched on the Wii today. I'm picking it up as soon as I get out of the purgatory I call a workplace. Anyone play it yet?

D-D-Dude! I want to play UC sooo much, but I can't at the moment because my stupid order with Amazon got delayed. And seeing as how I've had the damned thing on pre-order for like 6 months now, I'm a little annoyed that I apparently didn't get first dibs on one of their copies.

It's looks fuckin awesome...

Definately seems good. Also, couple a little tidbits people may not know. During Umbrella Chronicles, you get to play Wesker in just about every scenario. You also get to play as both the ill-fated Richard and Claire during the mansion incident, as well as Ada after the event which nearly killed her during Resi2.
Normality is overrated

Kaworu/Asuka - give it a chance!
(Clarification - I still like Asuka/Shinji)

Effing. Awesome. I can't wait. I'll be picking it up in about 9 minutes. I'll hop on later and let you know how it is.

@TriLink: That is the ultimate suck :(

I just beat the RE:0 scenario in RE:Umbrella Chronicles... It is the greatest frickin' thing EVAR! Seriously, two-player shoot-up, RE style, best idea Capcom ever had. I love it.

RE5 is supposed to take place all over the world from what I understand, but it starts in Africa. You're also supposed to be able to play as different people in different places, but it's hard to differentiate the rumor from the fact right now.

#1: I'm not through with it yet!
#2: Cleveland is only like, 5 or 6 hours aways, just come over and play it!

Playing as Wesker is really fun, but his levels are really hard. I had to fight this huge Shaft looking guy and he took three rocket launcher shots to the head and kept coming. The story-lines are fleshed out a lot more in this one and it's adding a lot of better elements. I'm super-into this game right now, it's horrible. Last night I even had dreams about zombies.
