I'm currently toiling away at what should be the last Udon book review for the week; The Art of Resident Evil 5. It's an amazing book. Look for the review tomorrow.
As much fun as these reviews are to write; facts are facts. Book reviews on a videogame websites tend to get overlooked. That's why I'm taking this bit of info I gleaned from The Art of Resident Evil 5 and posting it here. I think it's interesting enough to point out to you non-book review reading members of the internet audience.
The back of The Art of Resident Evil 5 features tons of words and pictures that describe material that was cut from the game. Traditional "Romero-style" zombies, a revamped version of the Tyrant, and revision of the hallucination scares that die-hard Resident Evil fans know from the pre-release version of Resident Evil 4 (commonly known as Resident Evil 3.5) were all planned for the title at one point or another. There's tons of other stuff that was also cut from the game, but I'm going to save that info for the review.
Makes you wonder how much of Resident Evil Revelations on the 3DS is adapted material that was originally planned for Resident Evil 5. We know the game will have good old puking zombies again, maybe that other stuff will make the cut too?
