I just ordered a new laptop (not Alienware! (I hate them)), but I was comparing the weight of my new laptop to the weight of my friends Alienware and I really liked the look of the game that they use in their advertisement.

Does anyone know what it is?

Note to potential closers: Normally identify-this-game questions are off-topic, but since OP is asking for something with a concrete picture (not just a drawing of something he remembers), this question is actually on-topic, as per the discussions here and here. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Aug 23 '12 at 18:39
That looks sorta like Metro 2033. – Frank Aug 23 '12 at 18:43
I'm pretty sure that second one is Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, but I don;t know for sure – SocioMatt Aug 23 '12 at 18:52
It also sort of looks like Mass Effect 3. – Ramhound Aug 23 '12 at 19:00

Decided to turn my comment into an answer.

The first picture you posted was a picture of Vector from Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. You can find a description and picture of him here. Additionally, if you search for "Resident Evil Vector" in Google images, you'll see a plethora of images of him.

The second picture is also from this game, although I'm having trouble verifying this with a reference or image. This is the best I could find (which also has Vector). enter image description here


Here's the info on Christine Yamata, the person in the second picture, also from Operation Raccoon City.

Ha, we found exactly the same image. I wonder if we googled the same thing? :P – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Aug 23 '12 at 19:07
Nope. I added the word "Woman" to that. You actually did better than me on the search: yours was on page 2, but my wasn't until 4. – SocioMatt Aug 23 '12 at 19:37
My answer was also a few minutes earlier, but you got all the upvotes :( – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Aug 23 '12 at 19:45
This just made my day. I love resident evil. Very happy to find out that this game with awesome looking characters and graphics is part of the series. – Sponge Bob Aug 23 '12 at 19:51
@BlueRaja People probably took pity on my pathetic 58 points up until that point and thought I needed it more. – SocioMatt Aug 23 '12 at 20:01

They are characters from Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City

The first actually comes directly from the promotional images they released.

Thank you for the answer, but I did notice that @SocioMatt posted a comment that actually had the right answer in it 10 minutes before this answer was posted. So that's why I have him best answer (I still up-voted your answer though because it is correct). – Sponge Bob Aug 23 '12 at 19:53
