the evil within

okay.  so i i'm pretty darn excited to play this game.  as a survival horror fan, my anticipation for this title peaked the moment i saw it shown at E3 last year.  it's received quite a lot of flak since then, whether through it's scattered release of trailers or from gaming site reviewers getting their hands on a playable demo.  needless to say, there was a lot of skepticism surrounding this release.  being someone who generally purchases games based on their reviews, i thought i might be swayed when it came down to it.  but i think i always knew from the moment i witnessed the first trailer, that i had the evil within me.  and there was no reviewer or naysayer that could deter me from this horrific experience. 

it also marks the return of Shinji Mikami to a genre he helped define.  you know, the creator of resident evil?  no big deal...
