Resident Evil 5 cast revealed?

11:24 PM on 07.06.2007 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

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.

While partially responsible for one of the biggest jokes in the metal, Cold Lake by Celtic Frost, Curt Bryant is doing the soundtrack to the game Slain!. I'm digging the shitty garage band vibe.

my dilemma this black friday is a PS4 for bloodborne and little else or like half the games on my steam wishlist. I know in my heart which one I'm going to pick.

Got DeSu2 Break Record from GS' Black Friday sale ($29.99). Love the Arrange CD. It's been far too long since I heard Meguro do something that wasn't tied to Persona. Also grabbed an extra copy of Freedom Wars since they were $5.

Haven't been around a few days. Getting over a cold and working on a review for Superbeat: Xonic on Vita. Starting to feel better, I think / hope.

So I'm almost done with my first play through of Undertale and... It's okay. It's in no way bad (and I'm enjoying it more than Fallout 4 which in also playing) but feel... It was overhyped I suppose? Not sure really... Maybe a second play though will help

Sometimes I wonder why I care. To simply have more vitriol and misery as my reward, to suffer ingrates and fools. That in all I do I'm never afforded the same respect or kindness. Let it be then, and let pain follow. I'm done with this shit.

I was telling this dead baby joke at dinner tonight, and this lady I don't recognize says, "I'm sorry. That joke isn't funny to me, I have two dead children." At this point, I went over my options in my head and settled with telling her the joke twice.

I really wish the slowpokes at Microsoft would add Forza Horizon to Xbox One backwards compatibility.... It's my favorite racing game. And the soundtrack is honestly flawless.

Some green tea and Mario Kart w/ family is a great way to end the day.

Honestly, Broforce might be my GOTY. It's really fucking amazing.

Welp, Remote Play is coming to PCs. Calling it now, PS Now enabled toasters and glasses will be announced at the next big Playstation event alongside cute Vita coffins made of paper you can print out of your Remote Play capable printers.

How did your Thanksgiving small talk with obscure relatives go? Oh, I bonded over the ethereal experience of hydrogen peroxide in ear canals but they'd never heard of Chrono Trigger so we mostly chewed the corn-flakes-on-potato thing in silence

I wonder how far the show would be taken out of context if the lyrics were "Go, Go Power Rangers, you Mighty Morphine Power Rangers."
