This is fantastic! I love the RE CG movies. I would rather see more CG movies of video games rather than live action cause Hollywood tends to f*ck everything up. (ie. Tom Holland and Mark Wahlberg for Uncharted? I'd rather have CG and give me Nolan North)

I enjoyed both the CG and the Hollywood movies, as far as popcorn flicks go. I will watch this one as well. I think the episodic nature will fit the bill just fine.

I don't have high expectations... But I will watch this regardless :)

Are the animated movies any good? is the an order to watch them in?. Other then the live action movies I've not seen the CGI ones.

Yeah they are pretty good and leagues better than the live action movies. They are canon and take place between games.

Degeneration takes place between 4 and 5
Damnation takes place between 5 and 6
Vendetta took place bettween 6 and 7.

I'm guessing the new one will take place between 7 and 8. It doesn't tie or connect the games. It's just the event of the movie takes place between those games in the timelines.
