Resident Evil 5 cast revealed?

Everyone is getting pretty excited over the new trailer for Resident Evil: Umbrella Chronicles. Everyone except for me. Look, when the news was originally announced, I was a happy little boy. I'm a huge Resident Evil fan, but even I have my limits. Umbrella Chronicles is taking the previous games and mixing them into one little package. So what does that mean? It means that I've already played this game 15 times now.

Let me break it down:

Resident Evil 1 for PS1, DS, GC, plus the Directors Cut. Also add Resident Evil 0. Now add Resident Evil 2 for the N64, PS1, and GC. Add Resident Evil 3 for DC, PS1, and GC. Plus Resident Evil: Code Veronica for the DC and GC. Finally add Resident Evil 4 for the PS2 and GC (eventually I'll get the Wii version). Add all that up and it equals 15 times I've played the six main games already.

Yes, I know that this is going to be a co-op game and have new content, but COME ON! Anyway, this post is not about RE: UC, I just needed to get that off my chest first. The main reason I'm writing this is to bring back attention to Resident Evil 5, a game that hasn't been getting the hype it deserves. So hit the jump for some speculative facts. 

Last week, I had the pleasure of joining John Martone and God Len for Spoiler-San. As we shot the sh*t on all things Cowboy Bebop, we started digging around IMDB for information on the voice actors. God Len came across Wendee Lee's profile and saw that she has been cast in Resident Evil 5. So unless Capcom decides to completely change the game from this day forth, here's a list of the characters that will be making an appearance in RE5:

Alyson Court ... Yoko Suzuki
Tara Platt ... Jill Valentine
Michael Gough ... Osmund Saddler
Wendee Lee ... Rita
Richard Waugh ... Albert Wesker
Sally Cahill ... Ada Wong (voice)
James Harper ... Ozwell E. Spencer
Dan Cool ... Steve Burnside

So veterans Jill, Steve, Ada, Rita and the always lovable Albert are making a reappearance. Two new characters, Yoko Suzuki and Rita will be introduced in the game as well. The news of Jill and Albert being in the game is interesting enough, but how about the news that Osmund Saddler and Steve Burnside are going to be in the game. For one thing, they're both dead! Osmund was the final baddie from Resident Evil 4 and Steve was Claire's ally from Code Veronica. Now, this is Resident Evil after all, so death isn't always  the end. 

There are two possible explanations for their return. Either their DNA was extracted from them at one point after they were infected with the T-Veronica virus and the Las Plagas parasites and cloned. Or the game takes place before the events of RE4 and RE:CV. In a way, that does make sense IF the scenario has Jill and the gang fighting Umbrella once again since the corporation was destroyed in RE 4. Whatever the case may be, I'm still hoping for a T-Virus/Las Plagas hybrid virus.  

Also of note is that Ozwell Spencer, the main man who created the Umbrella Corporation and has never appeared in any of the games at all, is going to make an appearance in RE 5. There is one more character from the past who might be making a reappearance. Thanks to Blindside Dork, Billy Coen (from RE 0) may be back. Capcom, for some reason or another, asked the voice actor to take off the information from his page

One last bit of info to share is that fan site Resident Evil Horror found news that Famitsu may have a story on RE 5 and more importantly, there will be some news about the game next week at E3. RE Horror has been wrong about RE 5 news in the past, so don't get too hyped up. Don't worry though, I'll be hounding Capcom next week for any info on the game.

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

Lacking recording/social features aside (I actually do love that aspect of the PS4), I've been really enjoying my Xbone. Sunset Overdrive is like Saints Row meets Tony Hawk and lovingly self-aware.
