GET YOUR ASS TO MARS: Someone Mashed Up Doom & Resident Evil

You know what Doom needs? Besides a next-gen coat of paint & a semi-coherent backstory? It needs characters from Resident Evil and third person perspective.  Luckily, one incredibly talented modder was up to the challenge and created DooM: The Mercenaries. 

Per Kotaku:

The current release can be downloaded here. To play it, all you need is a copy of Doom and either Zandronum or Skulltag.

So if you needed something to help you ignore your family during the holidays as punishment for not buying you a PS4/Xbox One, here you go.

Human Butcher Shop Opens to Promote Resident Evil 6 ** UPDATED** With More Vile Pictures

Some people are squeamish, so the fairly gory pictures (UPDATE: That includes all the newer, wetter, far grosser pictures) are after the jump.  From the press release, touting the pop up in London’s Smithfields meat market:

Once open, Resident Evil fans and unsuspecting members of the public will be treated to a glimpse into the gory world of Wesker & Son, the fictional butcher with a penchant for human flesh.

Once at the butchery, members of the public will be invited to sample and purchase a dizzying array of edible human limbs including hands, feet and a human head, which will be available to buy directly from the shop. As well as these specially created products, gamers will be able to buy ‘Peppered Human & Lemon Sausages’ and ‘J’avo Caught Human Thigh Steaks’ along with some specially made pots of Red Herb and Green Herb. All proceeds from the sale of the meat will be donated to the Limbless Association, which provides information and support to the limb-loss community.

In addition to the pop-up human butchery and morgue, Resident Evil fans will be invited to attend two days of lectures at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum, which have been designed to explore some of the themes in the game and their links to real life. Dr. Morgaine Gaye, a Food Futurologist who will discuss future trends in human food consumption as well as explore cannibalism through history, will conduct the first of these lectures on Friday, 28th September, while Prof. John Oxford, one of the world’s leading virologists will discuss viruses and examine whether the game’s infamous C-Virus could ever become a reality. Gamers and members of the public wishing to attend either of these lectures need to register:cannibalism/viruses.

I don’t care that I didn’t go to London to see the Olympics this year, but I am just a little bummed out not to be over there to check this out.  I doubt we’d ever see something like this Stateside.  Click the jump to get a real sense of what level Capcom is taking marketing to this time for Resident Evil 6.

Trailer Park, E3 Edition: South Park, Resident Evil 6, Medal of Honor

This game just looks fun, which certainly seems to be missing from many games lately.  Unless all of the reviews say this game is straight garbage, I believe it’s going to be a Day One (or earlier, fingers crossed) purchase for me.

Resident Evil 6 and Medal of Honor: Warfighter are after the jump.
