Picking up immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is on its last legs after Alice is betrayed by Wesker in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be humanity’s final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse. »

At this point in the Resident Evil franchise, there have been almost about as many movies in the Resident Evil franchise as there have been the video game series it.s based on. At this point, the film series appears to be as undead as the zombies that star in it. But the beginning of the end is in fact near, as we now have the first screenshot of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. Emphasis on the word "screen." Alice. #screenshot #residentevilthefinalchapter #residentevilmovie #capetowndiary A photo posted by Milla Jovovich (@millajovovich) on Oct 11, 2015 at 11:51pm Pdt Film star Milla Jovovich posted the above image of her character Alice, with her back to the camera, on her Instagram account. The shot doesn.t give us much to go on, in fact it has what appears to be destruction in the background and Milla Jovovich looking like a badass in the foreground. »

Videogames… They’ve not had the best of luck when it comes to translating themselves from game to movie. Especially when adapted into live-action movies. You end up with films like Alone in the Dark, House of the Dead, Bloodrayne, Doom and 2007′s Hitman. But they’re not all bad… Mortal Kombat kicked plenty of on-screen arse and garnered many a film fan’s love thanks to a plot that didn’t mes around with the source material or with inconsequential new storylines and characters. The Resident Evil franchise has at least managed to find a fanbase and continuing budgets to keep going even in the face of derision from non-gamers and gamers alike. And the »

I’d been a Sega kid in my formative years as a gamer thanks to an ill-advised decision from my parents to buy me a Mega Drive (that’s a Genesis, for you in the colonies) rather than a Snes. Like any true Sega gamer, I used to convince myself that I had the best machine. Mario? Pfft. He was just a fat plumber fighting an angry turtle. Sonic was the man (figuratively). He was radical and gnarly and other embarrassing nineties words. He had kick ass shoes, and he was super fast, and he had to fight a crazy moustachio’d scientist to save the animals. And we were all about nature in the early nineties. That’s where Captain Planet and Earth Song came from. Sonic the Hedgehog rocked my socks.
Except Sonic the Hedgehog was, for lack of a better word, shit, and I’d been kidding myself the whole time. »

Ever fancied saving the world from an out of control disease that wreaks havoc across the globe, triggering an apocalyptic event from which humanity must fight back from the brink of to survive? Yep, us too, and now’s your chance as you and up to three friends dive into the infectious world of Pandemic to prevent another Captain Trips or Rage virus from wiping us all out.
The object of Pandemic is for up to four players to take on the roles of doctors working out of Atlanta’s Centre for Disease Control (as immortalised in both The Stand and The Walking Dead) to stop four unnamed diseases (though being movie geeks we’re tempted to go with the aforementioned Captain Trips and Rage virus, along Resident Evil’s T-Virus and Cabin Fever’s, umm, fever) from reaching said pandemic status and bringing on the end of the world as we know it. »
The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice viral campaign is just getting off the ground, with Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor and LexCorp being front and centre. First, it was a Fortune interview with the evil industrialist, and now New York Comic-Con has played host to a new LexCorp, and the launch of a viral site that teases something for Winter 2015. First of all, it all looks a bit Umbrella Corp for Resident Evil, and the sleekness and polish doesn’t really gel with the photos we’ve seen of the corporation’s Google-esque headquarters (complete with awesome neon sign). And I think it’s safe to say Lex/Os will play a part in Lex’s masterplan when the movie hits on March 26th of next year. »

Considering there are just as many female gamers as there are male, it can probably get a bit frustrating having to play as yet another overly-macho meat-head in every big release every year. Hell, I personally fit the target audience for these wide releases to a T, and even I’m sick of the overly gruff white dude archetype that acts as the default protagonist in every new franchise.
Of course that’s not to say there aren’t any great women characters in gaming, because the difficulty I had narrowing this list down to a mere 20 proved to me just how many iconic females we do have in the medium. There’s been a few questionable portrayals over the years, for sure, but to focus on those would be to ignore the great, relatable nuanced characters that populate many of gaming’s greatest experiences.
Unfortunately, because »

SAG-aftra video game voice actors have authorized the union’s national board to call a strike with 96.5% of those voting backing a work stoppage.
SAG-aftra plans to ask companies to return to the bargaining table. Previous talks in February and June failed to produce an agreement on a successor deal.
Reps for the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers have refused to comment.
“It is important to note that the referendum result does not mean that members are on strike, rather, it gives the National Board the authority to declare a strike,” the union said. “A 75% ‘yes’ vote was required to give the National Board that authority. With this result in hand, the Negotiating Committee will seek to return to the bargaining table and continue to press for a fair resolution on behalf of performers working in video games.”
The contract covers work performed for Activision, Electronic Arts, Disney, »

Have you been waiting patiently for Capcom to lift the lid on Resident Evil 7? Unfortunately, you may be waiting for a good while longer to get any news on the game, according to the series producer, Masachika Kawata.
Speaking in a special celebratory issue of Dengeki Playstation, Kawata acknowledged that fans have been waiting patiently for news on the next main entry in the survival horror series, and also recognised concerns fans have had over it losing its original focus on horror – especially in the various spin-off titles like Operation: Raccoon City.
Since there’s been more spinoff titles, I can see how it can be perceived in such a way. And of course I believe that we should produce titles that bring out the horror. I’m thinking about it and also preparing for it.
When prodded for news on Resident Evil 7, Kawata simply said that “We’re [Capcom] currently »

With production still under way on Resident Evil: The Final Chapter in Cape Town, South Africa, stars Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Ruby Rose and Eoin Macken have taken to their respective Instagram accounts to share new photos from the set. Milla Jovovich's first photo is a group shot with all of the aforementioned actors along with Fraser James. We also get a solo shot of the actress. Ali Larter shares a shot from a monitor showing a scene between her and Eoin Macken, and another alongside Milla Jovovich.
We have been getting a steady diet of set photos since production started in South Africa back in July, but it still isn't known how much filming is left. Milla Jovovich did reveal last week that Japanese supermodel Rola had wrapped her portion of the shoot, so it's possible that principal photography could be coming to a close in the near future. »
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter may be intended as the action-horror franchise's, um, final chapter, but that's not going to stop the cast from goofing around on set.
Returning star Ali Larter tweeted the image showing the main cast pulling a pose that's hard to describe. Band on the Run-ish, perhaps?
We are very serious and method on set. @iamfraserjames @eoincmacken @rubyrose @millajovovich

The Heroes actress reprises her role as Claire Redfield, with the story picking up after the events of 2012's Resident Evil: Retribution.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is currently shooting in South Africa from September, as the crew take on the villainous Red Queen.

It might be hard to believe for people that didn’t grow up with the Resident Evil series, but Resident Evil wasn’t always like this. Back in the 90s when the survival-horror genre was still in its infancy, there was no such thing as over-the-shoulder cameras or adaptive AI. What Resident Evil used to look like now seems somehow quaint compared to what we’ve grown used to since the release of Resident Evil 4 back in 2005.
Tank controls made maneuvering your character completely counter-intuitive, a situation that was only exacerbated by the often frenetic nature of Re gameplay staples like jump scares, fast moving enemies, and chase sequences that could kill you with a single mistake. Keep in mind also that the first six Re titles (including Zero, the REmake, and the unnumbered Code Veronica) had only manual saving, and even that was limited. Players were given the option »

As Resident Evil: The Final Chapter continues to shoot in Cape Town, South Africa, more of the cast have shared photos from the set. This gives us our first look at newcomers Ruby Rose, Eoin Macken, William Levy and Japanese model Rola. They are all suited up and ready to bash heads as a new group of zombie hunters traversing the apocalyptic wasteland. We also get a few new glimpses of Ali Larter, who returns as the red-maned Claire Redfield.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be the sixth and last installment of the live-action film series based on the popular video game. Paul W.S. Anderson is returning to direct, with an early 2017 release date in place. Milla Jovovich, who has appeared in every film to date, will reprise her role as Alice. Also returning from previous installments are Iain Glen, who played Dr. Isaacs in 2004's Resident Evil: Apocalypse and 2007's Resident Evil: Extinction, »
A new behind-the-scenes snap from the set of what is supposedly the last film in the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, gives us a look at the movie’s leading ladies back together again.
Milla Jovovich will once again reprise the role of Alice, who will return to Raccoon City to battle the forces of darkness one last time. She’ll be joined by Ali Larter as Claire Redfield, who hasn’t been seen since 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife.
The movies that the incredibly popular Resident Evil video games spawned have not been quite so successful… at least, not critically. But despite many fans viewing these flicks as little more than a joke, it’s hard to argue with their box office takings – which is the main reason The Final Chapter will be the sixth instalment in the franchise.

As filming continues on the sixth instalment of the Resident Evil franchise, Milla Jovovich has taken to Instagram to share a behind-the-scenes image from Resident Evil: The Final Chapter of herself and costar Ali Larter…
