Fraser Valley Shout Out in “Once Upon a Time”


I’m sure nobody West of Langley is going to care, but during last week’s Once Upon a Time, a plot-critical piece of property was located at Old Yale Road, which actually exists, and there’s actually forest at that address. Neat, eh?

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City’s first 10 minutes

GameReactor posted the first mission of Slant Six’s Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. You play the part of Lupo, leader of a team of Umbrella Soldiers charged with protecting the zombie-creating G-Virus from the hands of the tax-and-spend government. The game seems like a standard shooter, but I also recognize some of the settings from Resident Evil 2. They’re starting off with an action movie set-piece, but are opting for a slow burn when it comes to revealing zombies or other bio-engineered nasties. I like that. Operation Raccoon City will be released on March 20th.
