More Captivate 08
coverage as Joystiq brags about getting to see a playable build of Resident Evil 5
in motion. No, they didn't get to play, but they still came away with some tasty tidbits. A massive, well-lit environment that still manages to be scary? Check. Melee attacks for not-zombies that violate your territorial bubble? Check. Big dude with an ax hammer (and ax that's also a hammer? can they do
that?) and a bad attitude? Double check. Joystiq also sheds a tiny amount of light on Chris Redfield's new partner, the woman introduced in the most recent trailer
producer Jun Takeuchi says she'll be more competent than Ashley was in Resident Evil 4
. Why, exactly? "Ashley didn't have a shotgun."
