Many a gamer is anxiously anticipating the release of Resident Evil 5 , which is slated to launch on March 13. It's a game designed to frighten, but if you want to go on a real-life freak-out session, we suggest purchasing RE5 from Game Crazy .
The retailer will be hosting midnight launch events on Thursday, March 12 (8:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.), and if you're a scare fanatic, you may want to attend. If you're lucky, you will receive a special "T-Virus" icon inside your Resident Evil 5 game box, and this will grant you and one guest a trip to the infamous Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky. Considered to be the "most haunted hospital" in the U.S., it's a trip designed specifically for the horror movie and game lovers, and will likely test your nerves. What better way to follow up your tense interactive experience than to physically tour one of the most intimidating locales in the nation? We're not yet sure when the trip will take place, but it's gotta be worth your time; only 5 "T-Viruses" will be handed out, though, so luck will be necessary. You may recall leaping out of your seat when those dogs jumped through the window in the original Resident Evil , and a trip to Waverly could also be memorable.
So anyway, it's a cool promotion at the very least. Now, all we need is for other publishers to do something similar; you know, like giving away trips to a race track when you purchase Gran Turismo 5 …with your choice of car to take for a spin.
