  1. I have been avoiding any RE5 related news like the plague recently, as I simply don’t want the game spoiled even in the most minor way.

    So I’m on the fence about whether I want to try the demo out yet… I’m crazy aren’t I?

  2. Unfortunately I have not finished the demo, so I do not know how much of a spoiler it is to main game. I’m sure it’s minor.

  3. No spoiler at all really, sure there is a few cutscenes but they don’t make sense.

  4. Yeah, I buckled and tried the game out. Seems to be the tidbits from the game that were most heavily featured in the trailers. No biggie.

    I guess what I’m referring to is that when I started getting excited for Dead Space, I over saturated myself with trailers and Developer Diaries, and even the comic book. It sucked away all the atmosphere’s effectiveness and surprise.

    I don’t want this to happen with RE5… but this demo seemed pretty benign.

    Fun though! Big issues with network connection problems, but single player is top notch.

  5. Yea, the graphics were some of the best I’ve seen in a video game.
