Has it really been 15 years? Love it or hate it Resident Evil is a very special franchise having single handedly created a new genre of game “survival horror“. Resident Evil was also arguably the first game to heavily feature zombies. Since its release 15 years ago there have been dozens of clones, over 20 Resident Evil titles (including mobile games), and more games featuring zombies than I can count. What makes Resident Evil special? Great heroes, diabolical villains, evil corporations, kung fu, colossal boss fights, and… Oh yeah, the simple fact that original games were damn scary. We’ve covered a lot of Resident Evil on NerdAppropriate.com, so forgive me If I sound repetitive on occasion; I love the series for what it was, as well as what it has the potential to one day be again. Check out this video released by Capcom highlighting some great moments from the past 15 years of Resident Evil. There are even a few clips from upcoming unreleased Resident Evil titles. Happy birthday RE!
Who the hell are all those people and events? No problem, I got you covered
0:13 – The nuclear destruction of Raccoon City – RE1
Before you get all excited about Sunnydale’s favorite slayer returning to television, I’ll fill you in on a little secret, it’s not really happening! On the other hand, we’re getting one of the most bizarre pop-culture mash-ups I’ve ever had the pleasure of witnessing. What happens when the father of all Zombie films, George Romero, sinks his teeth into a Call of Duty expansion pack? Call of the Dead happens! And why is this so damn cool? Call of the Dead allows you to play as Buffy, Machete, Freddy Kruger, and Michael Rooker!
Hero Academy has become a bit of an obsession here at Nerd Appropriate HQ. Creators of Orcs Must Die, Robot Entertainment have managed to craft an incredibly fun and addicting asynchronous iOS strategy game. Like any great strategy game Hero Academy is simple to learn, but challenging to master. Game play is an epinephrine infused game of chess, mixed with the random nature of Magic the Gathering.
