The Resident Evil has left the building

Resident evil Ah, better times.

Now, I don’t play video games that much, but one I have always liked is the Resident Evil games. It’s part of the influence behind me calling myself ‘The Resident Weeble’ (I’ll let you figure out the other influence yourself).

So when I popped in to the doomed HMV today and finally used a gift voucher I’ve had for about a year and a half, and I snapped up a copy of Resident Evil 5 at a highly reduced rate.

It’s probably worth pointing out, the reason I hadn’t got it before is I was waiting for the price to come down. I’m not the sort to rush out, motivated by hype, and pay full whack for a new game. I’m like this with most things actually, my new phone is generation behind too, it works out cheaper and I get to wait and see which one is popular and bug-less.

Anyway, my gripe is that the Resident Evil franchise has moved away from the survival horror / puzzle game I loved and just blended in with all the hundreds of other first person shoot em ups available.

The best survival puzzle game I’ve played recently is Portal 2. In all honesty it’s the last game I played. There hasn’t been that many. If anyone out there can recommend some like this, it would be much appreciated.

In the meantime though I think it’s time for the Resident Evil to move out this residence and The Resident Weeble to look around again.
