Oh yes, another Resident Evil: The Mercenaries trailer -- this time with thrills, chills (well, not so much in the way of chills) and a menacing-looking man named "Hunk." I'm sure he's an absolute dreamboat under that gas mask. For those who haven't been following news of the forthcoming RE title, the video features a brief, but quite concise rundown of the cast, all delivered in a rather slick style that makes it an enjoyable minute and twenty-three seconds.
Despite not caring too much for the earlier Resident Evil games -- incidentally, I find myself unintentionally thrown into the Silent Hill camp (I hate this fanboy nonsense with a fury that can rend worlds in twain) on account of the fact that I have a cat named Alessa -- I've thoroughly enjoyed the more action-oriented gameplay that began with Resident Evil 4. At the end of the day, sometimes a gent wants to sit down, crack an imaginary beer, and blast through zombie after zombie until stain of retail is thoroughly washed from his soul. The franchise has admirably facilitated this process, and for that they have my gratitude -- and just in case anyone would dare accuse me of injecting my thanks with sarcasm, I tell you in perfect sincerity that Resident Evil is one of the reasons I am giving serious though to saving up my pennies for a 3DS.
