Next to Killzone 2, Capcom's Resident Evil 5 is certainly the biggest launch of the first quarter this year, and survival/horror fans are stoked. Every time we see more videos of RE5, we get more and more excited, and here's another one: this one shows off some online co-op gameplay, and it kicks ass. Some purists may complain that this franchise has adopted too many traits from the far-reaching action genre, but then again, perhaps RE needed that. If you recall, RE4 is the game that completely resurrected this franchise's past glory, and the new, fluid, over-the-shoulder viewpoint worked beautifully. Is anyone really going to complain that it returns in RE5?
