Checkpoint: Replaying Resident Evil 5 Edition


So I decided to replay Resident Evil 5. I gave it a tough time when it released, but with a free rental coupon and lots of time to cope with the disappointment as Resident Evil game, I thought it was time to play the game people loved: the co-op game.

No split screen this time. Both players will have their own screens and we’ll be chasing after the Trophies which I hear can be quite the riot on subsequent playthroughs.

Let’s see how this game fares a year later. I’ll be posting impressions next week, but I thought it was worth a mention. Plus, the cover art was neat.

I’ve finished Heavy Rain, but there’s a lot more to see. Multiple paths, perfect runs and even intentional blunders. Some of the choices are truly gruesome.

In other news, I won my first Civilization IV game. It was on Warlord difficulty and it was a Cultural victory, but I finally did it. All I had to do was ween myself off the desire to waste turns on military techs and bee line towards culture. I also began the game with Queen Elizabeth which made things very easy with her financial trait.

My next goal? Space race victory which I don’t think is possible in a “normal” game. Who knows? Perhaps I’ll go back to Noble difficulty after getting a hang of this.
