Resident Evil 5 Demo

I haven't played it yet... I didn't even know it was out until detektor told me it was out... but I did see on Kotaku that you can add it to your download queue from the Xbox Live page... but, alas, it won't turn on your Xbox for you(at least I hope it doesn't - that would be freaky) so I don't know what good that does most of us who don't leave our consoles on 24/7. Seems like begging for a RRoD to me, but I guess you could turn it on the morning a big demo was due out... if you're that plugged in, which I'm not.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to doing some co-op this weekend since Anna will be up in Maine snowshoeing(seriously!) with her mother. Zombie survival games have never really been my thing, but after enjoyable experiences with multiplayer Horde mode in Gears of War 2 (which is the same general idea - streams of seemingly endless enemies and limited ammo) , I think co-op might be the way to go. We shall see, but I think it'll be good.
