If you want to know what bioterrorism fantasy looks like, try the latest chapter of the “Resident Evil” series. At the very least, it’ll make you think about investing in a mask.
Resident Evil 5 is the culmination of a saga that has evolved from a zombie-killing, bump-in-the-night scarefest to an action-packed monster thriller. By fully coming out of the shadows and adding a mythic spin on the world of biological weaponry, this piece from Capcom is one of my favorite titles of the early year.
As we noted here a little more than a week ago, Capcom was having their blood drive today to not only help trumpet the release of Resident Evil 5, but also to aid the perpetually good cause of donating blood. We weren’t there, but they sent over some shots. Take a look. The event drew in a few hundred.
To help promote Resident Evil 5‘s launch on Friday, March 13, Capcom and the American Red Cross are going to be hosting a blood drive at the World of Wonder Gallery from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition to the happy feeling you get when you give blood, you’ll also be privy to blood drive swag, chances to grab copies of the game, and your name entered into a drawing for a red RE-themed 360. No word yet on whether it’s the same shade of red as the RROD. Also, you’ll get a chance to play the game at various gaming stations.
