I've been a fan of the Resident Evil series for years. They are among the best games ever made in my opinion. Although they went a bit stale up until 2005, every game in the series has been very worthwhile and terrific in every sense. The only games I wouldn't recommend are the off shoot titles, but they are still decent.
Resident Evil 5 news has been very limited lately, although I'm pretty sure the man in the clip is suppost to be Chris Redfield since some of the developers of the earlier games are going to be involved in producing this entry to the saga.
I heard there's gonna be another Resident Evil game on the Nintendo Wii, although no further info has been posted anywhere yet.
