Well, it's nice to see it's non-cannon for sure at least. Regardless of what Slant Six thinks, that's not subtly inserting them into the story.
Gameplay looked...pretty much exactly what you'd expect, really. Not good, not bad, just standard team based run and gun. I didn't see any of the characters special abilities kicking in there, did anyone else? Maybe they just weren't active this time.
It was sweet that you came back as a zombie, it must be said. And the game still looks nice, which is good, but it would have been nice if they'd paid any attention to how Raccoon City is laid out. Also, and it's a minor niggle I admit, I do wish enemies didn't dissolve. Only Ganados and Cleaners dissolve.
