BLOG – Got Resident Evil Darkside Chronicles – Scammed!

The Wii isn’t exactly known for big selling and critically acclaimed 3rd party games.  Although rare, they are worth seeking out for the dying system. One of these games is Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles. Like the Wii’s version of Time Crisis with zombies, I enjoyed my time shooting at the screen going through a summary …
