Resident Evil and Onimusha composer exposed as a fraud

"Resident Evil and Onimusha composer Mamoru Samuragochi has admitted hiring someone else to write his music for nearly two decades, according to the Japan Times.

The 50-year-old, dubbed the "Japanese Beethoven", lost his hearing completely at the age of 35 but continued to work using what he calls his "absolute pitch". In Japan he is most famous for Hiroshima Symphony No 1, which he dedicated to those killed in the 1945 atomic blast, but gamers know him best for his work on Capcom's Resident Evil and Onimusha.

Main Resident Evil Fanbase Is In Its 30s And 40s

Quote:

The “main user group” for the Resident Evil games is now in its late-30s to 40s, Capcom have revealed. In a feature highlighting the series on their Investor Relations website, Capcom say that this poses the risk of these fans growing older and older and eventually outgrowing videogames altogether.

As always, the solution is to try and appeal to a younger generation of gamers, in an effort to ensure that you always have new players being introduced to the Resident Evil games. One approach Capcom are taking to help facilitate this is carrying out collaborations with fashion magazines.Click to Continue »

Wesker's Extra Report - narrated by D.C. Douglas as Albert Wesker

The folks over at Project Umbrella have prepared another great holiday treat for Biohazard fans.
DC Douglas reprises his role as Albert Wesker and has narrated Wesker's Extra report.
The report was never widely circulated in the original Japanese or English. This is a fantastic opportunity for those who are not familiar with it to hear it read from Wesker himself!

Thanks to D.C. Douglas for engaging with the Resident Evil community and generously working with Project Umbrella to make it happen.
And thank you to Project Umbrella for organising the recording, and for making an accurate and up to date translation of the original Japanese file.

Slow news ... quarter!

It's a slow news period, that's for sure. Some are drooling (or complaining) over the obvious existence of a new Resident Evil project at Capcom, some are counting the minutes and Facebook likes since the previous update on Team IGAS' Resident Evil 1.5 restoration project, others waiting for The Evil Within from Shinji Mikami and his new band of developers, and some are clearly eyeing other stuff going on online in the world of gaming and what not.Click to Continue »
