Been replaying this sucker on the Wii and I forgot how fantastic it is. A lot of games have you compromise and make you accept subpar gameplay if you want a B-movie plot but RE4 is all camp while still being one of the best games I've played. Blows me away every time, to be honest.

I love you


When RE4 came out on steam a couple months ago, they had hosed up some of the reload animations. The rifle's reload was hosed, most notably. I don't know if they ever got around to fixing that (I really should go back to it), but clearly Capcom was in the dark about what made RE4 so good. Y'know, ignoring RE5 and 6.

Kid, don't threaten me. There are worse things than death, and uh, I can do all of them.



Protips:

Use Red9, or blacktail if you are gay (its ok)
Skip TMP
Skip tactical shotgun, wait for striker
Skip semi-auto sniper if you are tru hardcore gamer
There is a Broken butterfly 4 free
Save Rpg for the right hand
Carry the bass (L) as far as loving possible into the game for a cool secret

Probably more but i havent played re4 in so long, is the steam version ok?

if you fully upgrade it TMP turns into a beast, you can just kind of sweep it over a row of enemies at roughly head height for full auto headshots. it's a blast to use on new game+

I don't think its a bad weapon upgraded, it just isn't good enough early to dedicate money and inventory space to and buying it just makes its terrible ammo drop more. It has great dps which is good for bosses


The bolt action is 10000x sexier than dumb semi auto rifle. The fish thing is just comedy

You can kill lots of fish at the lake and some in the castle, the small ones are 1x3 spaces and heal 2/3. The big one is a full heal but takes up like 2x5 spaces lol

Really? I don't remember finding any fish in the castle. Despite the fact that like 2/3 of the castle's rooms had huge fountains and/or pools in them.

There are some in a pool during the bug monster segment after you lose ashley to the incredibly obvious trap

the only gun i can't recommend is the mine thrower and that's just because you don't get enough ammo for it for it to be worth the inventory slot

it stuns people the same way the tmp does so you can boot them into crowds or hit a dude at the front of a crowd and have them be in the middle when it blows up

red9 gc is the best gun though

Doctor Goat

oh drat they did, i'm backwards and the red9 kicks even more rear end. luis sera has good taste.

i'm playing 6 and leon seems to have caught a little case of the palsy and i'm playing on veteran so the guns are shooting cotton balls and cerberuses are more deadly + annoying than ever. on the other hand, if you time it right, leon can just punch them out of the air.

leon has also gained the bulldog wrestling move and it's fast and fun, plus you can just melee everything. but the inventory sucks. every game should have re4's inventory, not the inventory from fuckin revelations

2 is really good too for being one of the classic games

leon B lets you get a shotgun that requires his whole weight to hold and blows dudes in half.

leon is in it. 2 is good. noticing a pattern here but i'm not very optimistic about 6

good tips. you can also use the RPG for the two garradors just after the castle clock tower. then you can freeze+magnum the right hand dude to death.

IDK about the steam version. I think when the PC version first came out it had a lot of issues (including no mouse-look lmao) that are probably fixed by now. XBLA version owns though.

oh right i forgot it was called this and not a "tactical shotgun."

i buy it, every time, and it's better than both the standard sg and the striker . the point of it is to reduce spread, which I guess defeats the purpose of a shotgun in a way, but it's really good at doing a lot of damage AND knockback at even medium range.

You can play the Wii version with a Classic Controller or a Gamecube controller legitimately, it's just not really well-documented. The laser sight comes back and everything.
