What really got me jazzed, though, was found on the DVD's special features: a trailer for Resident Evil: Degeneration, a CG movie due out sometime this year. Degeneration is set in the world of the games- in fact, it takes place 7 years after the events of Resident Evil 2 and 3 and features (at least) Leon and Claire. It's enough to give my geeky, Resident Evil-lovin' heart the palpitations! Where's my fainting couch?
I do not care one whit- not one whit, I say- that it's all computer generated; quite frankly, it's got me more excited than 96.4% of the horror movie trailers currently circulating on the airwaves, which is awesome. It's also rad that Capcom is throwing a bone to all the nerds of the world who have seen the RE movies and can't get over that they're not like the games.
