Fifth time is not the charm

Resident Evil: Retribution' a waste of time and money

Even when you're a regular moviegoer, there are always films that are going to fall through the cracks for whatever reason. Maybe you're not a fan of the genre, maybe the trailers turned you off, maybe there was just something better to see regardless, you can't see them all.

When those movies are parts of an ongoing series, it becomes easier to ignore the franchise with each subsequent film, since you're getting farther and farther away from the 'origin story,' as it were. But if you're like me, you eventually give in just to see what the fuss is all about.

'Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City'

'Operation Raccoon City' allows you to form squads from the main menu. This means you can pull all your friends together in a group before you start a game. It's pretty standard practice. Even if you don't play games like these, you only have to think about them for about four seconds before you come up with the idea yourself.

So, anecdote: My friend Jim and I squadded up to get some sweet sweet headshots (yeah bro) together, only to find that once Jim started up a game, I got kicked out because the game was already full. Despite that fact that Jim and I were clearly squadmates (the game's nomenclature), he was still put into a game that only had one open slot. We tried it again - I started the 'squad' this time - and it happened again; Jim was left alone, screaming for me to come back (he's a screamer).

That's fine. It's not like things like this don't get patched! I hear 'Mass Effect 3's' whole ending glitches out, or something; it's hard to be mad at a few matchmaking bugs in 'RE: ORC' when other 'gamers' like me have problems like that to deal with. Our third try - 'the charm' - got us in a game together, anyway.
