Just a quick PSA - if you are planning on snagging Resident Evil 5 this Friday on the PlayStation 3, you might want to make sure you have enough free space on your drive as the game is going to require a 5GB install to get up and running. It would be quite embarrassing to try to set up a co-op session with a buddy only to have to say - "sorry dude, I gotta clear up some hard drive space."
This isn't anything new for PS3 owners, as plenty of games have had the requirement, but if you own a 20GB PS3 you are probably juggling a lot of saved games and installs to get stuff to fit.
We just got our Xbox 360 copy of the game in the Co-Optitower and our first impression is it's quite a bit better than the demo. There's plenty of tense moments, and the co-op is absolutely top notch so far. Plenty of opportunities to work together - except of course when you burn your partner in the furnace...accidentally. More on that later this week!
