Resident Evil 5 before April 2008 seems very unlikely

You read the subject line -- Capcom isn't rushing their latest Resident Evil title to make some quick bucks. They are taking their sweet time (and probably relying on the attractive Devil May Cry 4 to boost sales a bit) to make sure we're getting the best product starring Chris Redfield we can get. In fact, Capcom must really love that poster boy -- he's been in the most games. The original (which we'll count as the fantastic GameCube remake), Code: Veronica and now this. However, poster boy #2, Leon Kennedy, stars in the best games of the series -- the second and fourth. Debate all you like.

Capcom released some financial reports and guess what game isn't listed on this fiscal calendar's release schedule? Yep, Resident Evil 5. This means we can expect to do the business with the zombies and whatnot around April of next year. At the earliest. Every single game just seems to get farther and farther from release! Eventually, developers might just shrug their shoulders and say "well, we just don't want to release games anymore." We kid, of course, but the waiting game is so boring.

1. Stupid Chris Redfield...

Is number 2 really better than the first?

2. 2008 is fine with me. I STILL haven't played the 3rd game, and I don't want to get into Code Veronica and RE4 yet until I finish it. Just don't want to by naive on any info that the 3rd game might have given me on the back story.

Am I missing out on anything in RE3? It's hard for me to find online at a decent price, so I wanna make sure it's worth it.

5. @ pete -- sorry buddy, you're way off. Code: Veronica was completely original starring Claire from RE2 and some Leonardo DiCaprio lookalike. It was on Dreamcast, then moved to PS2 and I think Xbox. But no, it wasn't a remake of the original. The GameCube got that and it was aptly titled "Resident Evil".

7. for OrganicShadow - im surprised you havent played them all yet. anyway, re3 is worth it and you will not find cheap anywhere. re2 and 3 are pretty much the hardest ones to get so minimum is around $40 each. all the games are good but re3 is in the top 3. all the times nemesis comes out after you (like 6 or 7 in easy, more in hard) keeps you on your toes. the fact that u can make your own ammo (9mm to freeze rounds) and the fact that u can make choices like whether to push nemesis off bridge or jump urself, or like electrocuting nemesis or blinding him in the tower (where he chases you). so if you have $40, buy it no matter what. and a quick note on Veronica.......its, in my opinion, the worst in the main series only because its boring playing a second time through. all the others ive beaten at least 3 times, re4 a total of 15 times normal, 1 pro.
