If you have been reading this ongoing series, first thank you, second it’s no secret that I like horror games. And it should also be apparent that the Resident Evil franchise is one that holds a special place in my gaming memories. After all, it was Resident Evil 2, and my love of zombies, that brought me back into gaming after being off it some years ago. RE2 still remains one of my personal favorite games of all time. But as I had been on a retro-gaming mood, I had been collecting Nintendo GameCube games as of lately as I had discovered earlier that the system did have a few games of interest to me.

Paul W.S. Anderson holds a special place in my heart. And that would be at the deepest, darkest, blackest part of it. After watching the newest trailer for the Resident Evil: Retribution movie, I am thoroughly convinced that he has completely lost touch with what the Resident Evil series is about. And that’s even assuming he had it was at the beginning. (more…)
