It is no great secret that we here at GamerSushi are a bit in love with last year’s Resident Evil 5, even to the chagrin of some in our community. We voted the game as one of our tops of 2009 and have sung its praises on many occasions. And while no, we don’t love Resident Evil 5 enough to go out and marry it, we do feel a great desire to take it behind a middle school and get it pregnant. You heard me right.
So it should come as no great surprise or shock that a few of us were hungrily clamoring for the first bit of DLC that Capcom sent hurling our way. Lost in Nightmares hit the Webs just last week, ready for gamers all around to savor its tasty flavors. This is the first of a few downloadable co-op chapters that will all eventually be packaged in the RE5 Gold Edition hitting sometime in the near future.
Not sure how many of you guys have seen/heard these, but I thought I’d post them here because they rule. Over the years, we’ve heard our share of pretty horrendous video game voice acting. Well, how about checking them out when they’re all compiled together, nice and friendly like?
Yup, it’s the 50 Worst Video Game Voiceovers of all time, and they kind of slay me with karate chops made of humor. Interestingly enough, many of them are from the Playstation, but that makes since, seeing as how it was the first console where voiceover became the norm. I think my favorite is number 5. “I like girls. But now- it’s about justice.”
Ok, considering that I’ve been wanting to play these games for the last few months, this news is just awesome. For you PS3 and PSP owners, a recent ESRB ratings search shows that Metal Gear Solid and Resident Evil are coming to the PSN Store for download! Yes, the original honest-to-goodness PlayStation titles.
I’ve been on a bit of a classic gaming kick recently and since I learned the other month that I misplaced my MGS disc, this is definitely a welcome surprise. The original Metal Gear Solid is still to this day one of my top five favorite games of all time, and playing it on my PSP while I travel over the summer is definitely going to be a bonus.
Is anybody else excited about this? Have you ever lost or misplaced an old game that you really wanted to play again?
We’ve all been there. That painful cringe as a voice actor in a video game lets loose another putrid sound byte. While gaming has come along way in this regard, there are so many bad spots in the past that its fun to reminisce upon them, much like this video does.
I have to say, I’m glad that both FFX and the original Resident Evil ended up here. That “master of unlocking” line is brutal.
