Check out some of the playable characters in new trailer for RESIDENT EVIL: Racoon City’s Multiplayer hero mode!

Looks like the longest running survival-horror franchise is finally taking steps to change with the times.  We’ve already heard from various reports that run-and-gun will now be included in gameplay, however from the looks of this new character trailer, Resident Evil: Raccoon City will also have multiplayer modes.

Is this something you are pining for as a fan of the series? Do you think this will turn any long time fans of the series off, or help to bring new gamers in?

Silent Hill: Downpour – Raining down horror on consoles soon!

If you were up late last night on twitter you might have caught a piece of my Resident Evil vs. Silent Hill discussion with various folks.  While I agreed principly that Resident Evil was the overall stronger series, I do feel Silent Hill deserves a lot of credit in it’s own right, going for a darker atmospheric type game.  There may be less action in a Silent Hill game, but I feel the franchise has the superior “creepy” factor while playing the game. Check out this extended trailer that just debut at E3:

Between this game, Resident Evil:Raccoon City, Rise of Nightmares, & Dead Island, my video game funds are going to be severely dried up by the end of 2011. (Although there is no way I am not saving cash for Uncharted 3, as well)
