IoM’s Resident Evil 5 Giveaway!

Resident Evil 5I was going to wait till Sunday to post this…but why wait?

Let’s face it.  The only thing more fun to kill than a Nazi is a zombie.  That’s why we love Wolfenstein – zombie nazis.

And what better game has come along to feed our desire to lay some lead into the undead than Resident Evil?  Sure, they switched from zombies to “rage virus” infected people in part 4.  But, let’s be honest…they’re just like zombies.

Resident Evil 5 comes out March 13th for both the Ps3 and Xbox 360, and will run you the usual sixty bucks.  But why pay for something you can get for free?  Sunday marks one month for us at here at IoM, and we’re celebrating our first month our biggest contest yet – the opportunity to win a FREE copy of Resident Evil 5!  How do you do it?  Find out after the jump!

Well, we make it easy for you – post a comment in the talkback below telling us about your favorite zombie experience – is it House of the Dead: Overkill?  Zack Snyder’s Dawn of the Dead?  Max Brooks’ World War Z?  Movie, tv, games, books, comics…anything you want!  Just let know which is your favorite and why.  We’ll pick a winner at random from the list and that lucky boil or ghoul will get a brand new, all shiny copy of Resident Evil 5 for the system of their choosing!

Contest ends midnight March 10th – that way we can (hopefully) get the game to you on release date!

Good luck!

    Definitely House of the Dead: Overkill. It was so gratifying blowing up Zombie (excuse me, mutant) Clowns in the amusement park level. Also, the boss was incredibly repulsive.

    Great times!

  2. le zomb says:

    One time i went into the woods with my friend and he becamed le zomb and ate all the trees cuz i have no brains

  3. Replicant says:

    My favorite zombie experience was watching Tom Savini’s Night of the Living Dead (remake) when I was a kid. This version is so underrated, even to this day I still get a bit queasy watching reruns of it. Even thinking of the eerie opening scene at the cemetery where Johnny calls out “They’re coming to get you Barbara” makes me want to crap my pants!!

    …uhh, excuse me I’ll be right back…

  4. TrumpyDumpy says:

    Zombies kick a$$ because of all the horror possibilities becoming reality (ie: werewolves, vampires, etc.) the undead is the most plausible.
    To pick 1 is like asking a fat kid what his favorite food of choice is.
    I’d have to go with the Zombie genre as a whole.
    It’s just too good to narrow for someone like me who enjoys it all.
    From “Resident Evil 2″ to “Day of the Dead.”
    From “28 Days Later” to “Evil Dead II.”
    I guess when it comes down to it, the portrayal of the living dead in video games and film is where it’s at for me.

  5. Allan Geovanny says:

    Well, my favorite zombie experience was when I was playing Resident Evil Nemesis. I remember I was 8 years old… yeah yeah, I know that at that age I wasn´t supposed to play rated “M” but ehh… Xd
    Well, I was eating some churros while I was playing, it was the first time I´ve playen RE Nemesis. So, I didn´t know what to expect… anyhow, I was approaching the outside of the RPD and enter. Well, I notice there was a cutscene, so I decided to grab a churro at start eating it. I was watching the cutsune when all of a sudden some enormous moster came from nowhere and killed Brad. I was like, oh shit!! That scene cared the hell out of me, I couldn´t finish my churro and to top it off, I chosed to fight with the moster. pufff, bad decision, I couldn´t believe how fast and powerful he was. He killed me so quickly, Nemesis was a badass, and still know, he´s a tough one to beat. Well, that is my favorite zombie momment Xd. See ya

  6. Kry. says:

    Well, i’d have to say my favourite zombie experience is the RE4 mercenaries. Shredding zombies with HUNK’s TMP is just too much fun >=D

  7. david11193 says:

    my favorite zombie moment is in the 1st resident evil movie when they see the first licker threw the tv after it kills that guy who was carying the anti virus

  8. Red X says:

    My favorite zombie experience is when i became a zombie in the game “left 4 dead” I kill all my friends and i won the game by myself LOL.

  9. DragonNInjaX says:

    Hm, I’d have to say my favorite experience is Nazi Zombies in Call of Duty: World at War. It’s wicked fun and you WILL lose no matter what! Staying up all night trying to survive with a few friends is the best. Nothing like killing Nazi Zombies in the early morning to start off your day!

  10. Virtual Snow says:

    My favorite Zombie experience…
    Welp, When I was about 12-13 years old, I was afraid of zombies, deathly afraid of zombies. That all changed when I saw the second RE movie. I was just about ready to crap my pants when my big sister suggested (probably knowing I would freak out) we should watch it, but my pride kept me from running away like the girl I am. So about 20 mins into the movie (if memory serves) my heart is racing and Im contemplating a way to escape the room without looking like a wuss, when suddenly I start laughing at the shear ridiculousness of the whole thing. The dramatic camera angles, the faces on the actors the horrid music…I couldn’t take it anymore. XD Sure I did have a few of those “oh S***” moments with the lickers and Nemesis, but for the most part I reveled in the madness. Sure, the Resident Evil movies are overall pretty bad, Apocalypse will always have a special place in my heart. It made the zombie lover/killer I am today.

  11. RRJ says:

    The first time I played Resident Evil 2. I was about 12 years old and I remember my next door neighbor who was my elder spoke briefly about a “zombie” game that I just had to play. We ended up going to his friends house who was a bigger RE junkie and watched him play the PC version…I was done. Not only was I completely engrossed with the story, but the zombie moans and the way the moved scared the crap out of me. A week later I purchased the game, but found it very difficult to play it, I would ask my neighbor to come over and I watched him play. Good times indeed.

  12. Aaron Lira says:

    My favorite zombie experience is from the first resident evil game when the dogs jump through the windows, enough said its one of the most classic and unforgettable video game horror scenes in my eyes im sure many would agree with me and thats why its my favorite zombie experience.

  13. J$ says:

    haha my favorite zombie moment was in the remake of dawn of the dead when the married couple has the baby but the baby comes out a zombie hahahaha I mean what would you do with it?

  14. nickXcore says:

    Hm…my favorite zombie experience would have to be Nemesis from Resident evil…that shit scared me like no other…being chased throughout the city by that epic superzombie *shudders*

  15. Vash the Otaku says:

    Favorite zombie experience… hmmm… That’s gotta be the opening of the original Resident Evil. Cheeze-fest!!

    Or maybe the gut ripping in the Day of the Dead…

    But favorite “overall” zombie experience would have to be the original George A Romero Dawn of the Dead.

  16. MadHatter says:

    Hmm My favorite zombie experience…
    I had a dream twice about the whole world turning into zombies excluding my family. So we basically have to survive.

  17. MIkeHotel says:

    My favorite zombie experience was that of playing the original Resident Evil on PS1. The whole backstory of the Umbrella Corporation, Ozwell Spencer, George Trevor, it all intrigued me so much. And Resident Evil 2 was even better. The series as a whole really turned me on to zombies, survivalism, guns, etc. In a way, it really did change my life and how I perceive things around me. All thanks to those lurching, fetid sons of beasties….

  18. TheCunningPoliceman says:

    Of all the great memories we all have, mine isn’t just my own. I remember surviving horror in th original 3 Resident Evils with my brother. We’d stay up all night playing through them, our under garments soiled. I still get shivers up and down my spine when I think of nemesis busting in through the window in the police station. “STARS”. I remember when we left Rebecca to die in RE1 cause we hated her so much, haha. Shame we didn’t get the good ending cause of that. Grrrrrr. I think these are just examples of the countless memories me and my brother have of horror, from the granddaddy game series of Resident Evil to movies like the awesome remake of Dawn of the Dead, but because I have to choose one, I’ll choose the best one. 28 Days later, the birth of the rage zombies. That movie alone made me fear zombies more than ever. I learnt to fear them again in a new way. God its creepy. Me and my brother James will never be able to regain the pride lost from freaking out at that movie lmao. Anyway thats my favorite, heres hoping that we’ll have a new favorite playing RE5 co-op. *Crosses fingers*

  19. Shaun says:

    My favorite zombie memory is playing RE 3 Nemesis all summer long with my Uncle. Half the time we had no idea what to do for the puzzles and we fought Nemesis in his many incarnations multiple times. Probably my fondest summer memory to date.
    2nd place goes to my first Crimson Head zombie in the REmake. It scared the living shit out of me and my friend, who decided we could just walk on dead zombies all we wanted… big mistake.

  20. Martin says:

    My favorite zombie experience turned out to be my worst nightmares. Way back in the day I loved to read Evil Ernie comics. The books were so scary and freaky; and my infatuation showed with all the drawings I did of Ernie and his smiley face pin. I think because I was so into it, I started to have a series of nightmares where I was a lone survivor surrounded by zombies who all want my flesh. The worst part is seeing my family as zombies too. 12-13 years later and I still say those were THE most horrific and memorable nightmares I ever had. (I can never forget my zombie lil’ sister clawing at my feet)

  21. chris says:

    the most memorable moment for me was in RE4 when the guy on fire busts out of the fridge.I had a heart attack.

  22. Wayne says:

    My favorite zombie experience would have to be the year I was an actor for Paramount’s Kings Dominion here in VA. I signed up over the summer to do their October Scarefest. Being a huge horror/zombie fan joining the ranks of the un-dead only seemed natural for my role. So I did the 2 hour drive to the park one weekend in October and it was a blast. For the first few hours of Friday night I had to pretty much walk around and observe some of the veterans since this was my first time. Even got a picture with one of the more intense looking zombies. When it was finally my time I took my home-bought kit (the wait for the make-up artist would have taken all night) and headed into the bathroom where I became a brain muncher. I took a lot from movies and games I had saw and really tired to play my part. I spent about 13 hours that weekend creeping around, moaning, chasing and scaring the shit out of the guest. But let’s not forget about me time, in which me and a few of the actors went into a local IGA close to the park and stocked up on “un-dead booze” as we called it. Zombies gotta get their drink on too! I stayed in costume all weekend aside from sleeping and showering. Those of us who weren’t local got put up into a cheap hotel and we also had a blast walking the halls there. The workers their thought we were a bunch of crazies walking around screaming for brians.
    It’s by far my most memorable expeirence. I’ve even enclosed some photos taken durrig the event.

    Photo of veteran Zombie and myself.

    Me as a Zombie gettin my drink on!

  23. I’ve been playing video games and movies of zombies for years now. My favorite zombie experience was when I first played Resident Evil Directors Cut; when you discover a zombie eating your partner, and he turns around and looks at you with his creepy face and blood all over him. That was with out a doubt my favorite zombie experience.

  24. Jacob says:

    I have been playing the resident evil games since the first one the playstation on one. I never liked a series more than resident evil. And we finaly get to play five! Im so excited.

  25. Richard says:

    My favorite zombie experiences were when I wrote my own resident evil script and tried to make a movie. It was set in the RE universe but did not have any RE characters as leads- all new people, all new story. A friend and I started filming this around 2001 but sadly it was never completed due to people not showing up. The trailer to the movie is still on youtube here so go watch. Its not the best trailer, or even complete, none of the effects are there, but it was a lot of fun and maybe I’ll actually get to shoot it some day. P.S. I am the tubby one.

  26. Seeing zombies getting shot up and blown to pieces in George A. Romero’s original “Dawn of the Dead”. When there’s no room in hell, the dead will walk the Earth!

  27. Ginny says:

    My favorite zombie experience happened when I was a kid. One night my parents and I stayed up late to watch our favorite zombie movie, Dawn of the Dead (1978). We wanted to be like Mystery Science Theater 3000 and find something funny to say about everything. The silly-looking, clumsy zombies made it easy for us.

  28. Stacey Gillespie says:

    For me the experience would have to be when I dressed myself up as a zombie for halloween and laid down in front of door. My makeup was excellent and I used dark clothing to cover up my entire body. Whenever kids would walk up to our door to knock I would either moan, yell, or combine both and grab their leg. I only did this to kids who seemed old enough and had a great time giving them candy afterwards. A guy walked up to me and said his girlfriend was just down the street and that she was visiting from somewhere and had never gone out on halloween before. He asked me to scare her when she arrived and when I did she took off running down the driveway. The three of us ended up hanging out a few days later and laughing about it.


    Resident Evil all the way.

  29. Billy Saltzman says:

    I saw some Zombie movie when i was like 5. It really creeped me out thinking could this really happen I don’t want the world to end!

  30. ndesu 2000 says:

    my favorite zombie moment of all time is definitly when you fight the first el gigante in resident evil 4 and the dog that was in the bear trap comes to rescue you while you finish it off with your TMP

  31. dakota says:

    My favorite zombie experience was with resident evil 2 with the lickers and all those scary stuff i couldn’t sleep for weeks after playing that game.

  32. Devin G says:

    My favorite zombie story would have to be the original Resident Evil. I was in Elementary school and picked the game up from a pawn shop for like 5 bucks. After shooting the first zombie in the face I was hooked on Resident Evil and survival horror games for life.

  33. Fernando says:

    As far as zombie-related things I like, I just like them all…

    It could be campy, high budget, gory, not gory..but there’s something about dead-people (or sometimes animals, creatures, etc) walking around, moaning, and eating other people; that I just love.

    One thing that I remember always happening, was that every time I played a Resident Evil game (since the first one on the original/gray PlayStation console), I went to sleep and always had a dream (or a nightmare?) of me running around trying to survive waves of zombies and creatures..and the “dream” always ended with me dying. I always found those “dreams” to be..kinda cool, because I felt like I was inside a movie..hehehe..

    I remember when I played the REmake (Resident Evil remake for the GameCube), one time I finished it 3 times in a row in one sitting (hehe), I dream with the giant snake and the shark from it too, only that there were zombies swimming in the tank along the shark.

    I’m kinda disappointed that zombie movies, games, in general are rarely made and most of the ones that are done are ignored by many; maybe that’s the reason why I like’em so much.

    Now here comes Friday (March) 13th. A date that for now won’t only be remembered for the “Jason movies”, but because of the release of the (soon) awesome Resident Evil 5…yikes!, can’t wait to see the “dreams” I’ll get!

  34. The Kid says:

    I remeber when i was younger, going to my friend robs house. We would play resident evil almost every visit. By the time Resident Evil 4 came out, we were so exstatic. I was at his house non stop playing that game with him and our other buddies. We played resident evil 4 for about 3 1/2 years before turning our coppies in to the local gamestop. We got so much out of that game and all of the others. Hopefully resident evil 5 will bring fun memories for me and my friends to talk about untill resident evil 6 comes out in, who knows when! haha

  35. Mugdha says:

    Favorite zombie experience? Has to be playing Resident evil while blasting Re:your brains by Jonathon Coulton. Best juxtaposition ever.

  36. Martin (ME) says:

    My favorite Zombie experience is in Resident Evil 4. The part where you either fight El Gigante or the Bella Sisters(chainsaw). I picked the Bella Sisters. With two chainsaw WOMAN and a few Ganados made my forehead and my hands sweat. It took me some tries to pass this part. After I passed the game. I got the infinity rocket launcher and the hand cannon, and I made them suffer. It was hilarious killing what used to scare me!

    There was one moment in Left 4 Dead, when I was playing online co-op with some of my friends in Versud mode that I was left to defend for myself. I was reaching the safe room in Death Toll Chapter 2 when a smoker grabed, then a boomer vomited on me, then a hunter jumped on me while I was down. Finally a Tank finished the infected and me with them. It was a hilarious moment.

    In the Resident Evil 5 Demo, I was playing Shanty Town. Fighting the Chainsaw guy. Since I was Chris I had the Rifle. I was on the stairs while my friend was near the broken down bus. I reloaded my rifle when suddenly Mr. Chainsaw decided to change plans. And I was killed and I tought the MAJINIS gaved you time to dodge their attacks.

    4 more days until RE5 comes out! The collector’s edition is awesome!

  37. Ashley says:

    Up until recently, I was a resident of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I lived about a twenty minute drive from Monroveille Mall- the filming location of George A. Romero’s original “Dawn of the Dead”- which is otherwise a quiet pseudo-suburban shopping center. Despite it’s fame as the survivor refugee fortress in the cult classic, it’s a fairly average, a small collection of popular clothing stores, hobby shops, and restaurants. There are only a few news clippings framed along hidden hallways and walls throughout the mall- many locals aren’t even aware of it’s history.

    It’s generally a quiet little mall, where apathetic teenagers and mothers with screaming children drag their feet wearily from store to store, in hopes of squelching their insatiable hunger for trendy clothing and popular video games. However, once a year, a different kind of creature walks the premise- Monroeville Mall’s Zombie Fest is quite possibly one of the greatest gatherings of people. People of all ages, genders and personalities come together with carefully crafted and quickly put together costumes, face paint, and their best zombie shuffle to participate in this amazing spectacle. Moaning, groaning, and hobbling hordes of vivid personalities trudge from the mall to a selected location, where they fiend for a spot in the Guinness World Record. It’s a ghastly, and amazingly entertaining sight to behold.

  38. ZombieLover13 says:

    Resident Evil (original). That damn zombie in the bath tub lol.

  39. DV says:

    My favorite zombie experience was watching my brother play Resident Evil 2. I was an absolute coward at the time so I let my brother play all the hard and scary games. It was amazing! It scared the crap out of me yet I was compelled to watch more and more. My brother would play it over and over, and me, with a crappy ass memory, thought the scenarios were different through each game. Ada’s death, Birkin’s fights with you and the seemingly complex puzzles left quite an impression on me. I never really was interested in horror games yet there was something about that game…

    Of course, it later left me with nightmares of zombie attacks in real life and late night freakouts as I wondered if a shadow moving on my wall was a hunter.
