As you noticed, I added a gallery in the top of the page. I tried to put all of my missing work. I may have forgot something, just let me know. I didn't experienced any problems with this flash widget so far, except the annoying "Get widget" logo. I used WidgetBox to insert the flash gallery. It's quite simple, but you have to deal with that ugly logo. If someone know how to simply and properly insert a widget in Blogger, I'll be very thankful if you tell me.

Resident Evil 5 demo, not only for japanese !

If you don't want to (or are too lazy) to create a japanese gold xbox live account, there's a way to get it.

All you need, is a blank DVD-/+R, a DVD writer, and BurnAware Free installed on your computer.
First, google "Resident Evil 5 demo iso (or) download"
I won't give you the link,as I'm not sure if it's legal.
Download the demo on your PC.
Create a folder named : "Content"
Extract the demo archive into that folder.
You should have a 4 levels folder :/Content/0000000000000000/434387F2/00080000/
and in the last level, one big file : F1DDFE89B7AB645A93E17B12DA7D91588B3255A343
Run BurnAware
Insert your blank DVD
In Burn Aware : choose "create a Data DVD"
in the new window : click : "Add".
Click the "Content" folder once, then click "Add" and "OK".
Click the "Compilation" tab, and "Preferences"
Tick "Define the speed before writing", click "OK"
Now, click the Big Red button
and choose the right writing speed (x8 is good)
Wait the end of the writing process.
Load your DVD into the Xbox360
The Xbox 360 should detect the DVD as a Multimedia Disk (or something like that)
Go to your Games Library, and got to the Demos section.
Resident Evil 5 should appear in the list (with some japanese characters).
Launch it !!! and have fun !!!

I just finish playing it, and it went all beyond my expectations !!!
A lot similar to RE4 in the gameplay, but with updated gorgeous graphics ! The environment are rich and detailed with sharp textures. The lightning is really well done. Art direction is great.
The first level is an absolute nightmare (reminds me a lot the first level of RE4).
At first, I was a little bit sceptical about co-op play, but this mode is a great addition, and far more interesting than the GoW one. It's the first time that my boyfriend didn't mind to start a level again and again without loudly crying of frustration.
Now, I just have to hibernate waiting for the release date.

Resident Evil FOREVER !!!

I don't why, but these days was like that every single moment I spent was entirely dedicated to Resident Evil.

I can't wait to the RE5 demo coming online on the XBox Live (already available in Japan, but, unless you have a japanese GOLD account, you're screwed). Resident Evil Degeneration is finally available on DVD (or watchable somewhere in the underground internet zone).Damn, this game is like a drug for me... I should do something to cure myself, like ... doing some nasty FanArts !!! (with an extra bonus : a 3D version !!! - of course you'll need some special glasses)

Here it is :
Regular version :

3D version :

If you didn't notice, this is a Resident Evil 5 Fan Art. You can see Chris Redfield climbing up a ladder, and next to him Shevan, the male version of Sheva :D .

About RE Degeneration (if my humble opinion interests you):

As I understood, the story takes place just before RE4 (The new parasite is not mentionned). After the Racoon City destruction, the case becomes public. As a consequence, Umbrella collapse, and finally is shut down. At the same time, bioterrorism is raising up. A new organisation, Terra Save, tries to control the WilPharma activities, and the experiences made on human subjects for a new vaccine. But the plague will soon start again, when an infected WilPharma employee is found sick in an airplane, resulting in a spectacular aircrash. The Virus T is back.

This CGI movie is a little bit disappointing. Story is too confusing, and most important, it doesn't look like a survival movie, but more like a Sci Fi one... But it's always a pleasure to see Leon Kennedy (as seen on RE4) again. Claire Redfield and all female characters look like "botoxed" barbie dolls... (maybe the weirdest creatures in that movie).
This film is really made for fans, and reminds a little bit of what Square did with FF Advent Children. Some flaws are similar : too much "fan service", story that could confuse or even bore viewers who don't know the RE saga... (my boyfriend slept during the film)... A little bit less of RE, and a little more of real zombie movie wouldn't hurt...

Anyway, Re Degeneration deserve a watch, more than the live action adaptation.

(oh, by the way, I need a French/English translator, or someone who can correct my poor grammar...thanks)
