Resident Evil 5 screens forget to show blood

6:41 PM on 08.20.2008 // Brad Nicholson

As a Silent Hill guy, it almost shames me to say that I’m excited for the next iteration of the Resident Evil franchise. Resident Evil 4 and its much-improved mechanics revitalized my hope that Capcom will eventually create a near perfect action/horror game. Today, Capcom released eight new screenshots for the upcoming Resident Evil 5 and I was shocked to find a lack of gore. How could Capcom do this to us?

The screens seem to dictate that Capcom is spending a lot of time with the cooperative play. Almost every capture has the mystery girl and Chris getting ready to do something cool like shoot a zombie or help each other across an obstacle. I pray to Denis Dyack’s Norse gods that the cooperative play doesn’t boil down to the travesty that was Army of Two. Please Capcom, hold off on the ledge grabbing and add more chainsaw. It’s for the children.
