Goddamn RE5 really is more goofy than I give it credit for. Extreme makeovers, seven minutes to hang out, giant people pod pits. If only Chris and Sheva were in on the joke the same way Leon was in 4.

It's action-movie goofy as opposed to giant terracotta midget statue goofy.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what Shinji Mikami does with this new game Zwei he's working on.

Speaking of RE5, does anyone have any tips for the final chapter? I'm finding it really hard to progress past the point where I open the primary bulkhead and the two insect things appear. They keep one hit killing me, so I just ended up using the Grenade Launcher with explosive ammo but that seems wasteful. For the next part with the two gatling gun Majini I don't seem to have any enough ammo, but I do have enough first aid sprays. I also didn't really buy any of the new weapons and just upgraded the ones you start with, because that was the way to go in RE4.

So is there some trick or any easier way to get past this?

The glow is a guide, my friend. Though it falls to you to avert catastrophe, you will never fight alone.

All this nonsense talk makes me want to play RE5 co-op again. Anyone else have that itch and has the game lying around or on their hard-drive?

Edit: I mean, for playing the game normally without upgraded guns and infinite ammo and all that jazz. Be nice to play on a harder difficulty and be somewhat tactical with a friend to survive.

Don't worry about wasting the explosive rounds on the bugs. It's not like you're going to need it anymore. If you blast their limbs off with the shotgun, they won't be able to do their one-hit kill for a few seconds.
For the gatling gun guys, I normally go to the upper walkway on the left before they spawn. You'll find landmines in one of the rooms there. Lure them in and then keep alternating mines and grenades with Chris' haymaker.

I imagine people are just used to it at this point. I mean, RE5 had secret ancient-African ruins hidden in plain sight that nobody apparently ever bothered to look at. Then RE4 had a giant midget death robot. There was also the bottomless pit of people pods in 5. How did Wesker even build that? How do you just silently build a bottomless pit of people pods in the middle of not-Africa?

I mean at least two games in the series feature orbital laser cannons.

All of the weapons in RE5 except the unlockable bonus guns are available at some point during the game, usually in a shiny silver case. You don't have to buy any of them.

The moment you throw the levers to open the last bulkhead, veer left and drop down to the lower level. If you go back the way you came, there's a short tunnel down there that's a perfect choke point. You can set up a bunch of proximity mines down there before you pull the levers, then lead the Reapers into the tunnel and blow them up.

For the gatling gun guys, they work a lot like they did in RE4. You can keep them both stunlocked with rifle or Magnum rounds to the head or hand grenades. The way you're "supposed" to beat them seems to be to lead them on a chase scene like I just recommended with the Reapers.

Another option, although it's only really useful if you have a buddy, is to wait until the final bulkhead opens and use the turret near the final door.

Chris' tone is set from the very beginning of 5, when he says, "they don't move like any zombies I've ever seen." He says it in such a matter of fact unemotional way that you can just tell he has seen so much crazy poo poo that nothing can even touch him. He could watch a big rig turn into Optimus Prime in front of him and he would just say, "I've never seen a truck do that before," then walk away eating a candy bar or some poo poo.

This is part of the reason why I'm excited about RE6. I think they realized the comedy in having Chris as the ultimate straight-man and are once again playing his campaign 100% seriously while Piers is probably like "uhhhhh what" the entire way through.

Seriously the Comic-Con demo for him is a fantastic example of this where he kind of casually runs up the giant, pulls a bone out it's back and then proceeds to jam the bone into the thing's giant obvious beating heart weakspot sprouting out of it's back.

There should just be a line of BSAA games starring him where you just fight the most insane monsters possible and break up a bunch of nonsensical master plans.

Does anyone also feel that Leon's character has changed so much since RE2 & 4? There's not much to say moving from 2 into 4, he's essential the same person. But in 6 it looks like he's really become anxious and sensitive to everything around him. Whereas Chris just sees all this crazy stuff happening around him and just deadpans all of it.

I think the idea is that after RE4, Leon tried to move on. Like, he has a good job, he's bros with the President of the United loving States, he hasn't seen a zombie in at least a couple years. And then all of a sudden, everything goes to poo poo, all his friends die, including his boss, and I think the Secret Service frowns on letting the Prez get zombiefied and then shot in the face, so he's probably out of a job, too. Dude's stressed as hell and just wants to get away from crazy monster-men.

Chris, though? Chris don't give a gently caress. He fought his archenemy in a duel to the death inside an active volcano. His life has peaked, basically. Unless Wesker comes back with some sort of moonbase and challenged him to a zero-gravity sword fight, it is all downhill for Chris Redfield. He just grabs a bottle of Jack and starts punchin' zombies and bug monsters in the face because, hey, gotta punch somethin', right?

Characters can develop and evolve and I like it when that happens. I don't think anything we're seen so far is inconsistent with either of them in terms of character growth.

It's not like Leon is now a world-famous soccer player and Chris is a brony or anything.

I haven't played any Resident Evil, ever, what with generally only ever owning the consoles that it's released for as an afterthought, but this seems almost inevitable. Looking at the plots over the course of the series, we've got a substantial case of epicness creep.
RE1/REmake: Zombies in a mansion. Not epic.
RE2/3: Zombies all over a city. Fairly high stakes here.
RE:CV: Zombies all over an island and also Antarctica. Kind of hard to place this one on the epic scale but we now also have Harrier jets and submarines so I'd say it's a notch up.
RE0: God, hell if I know. Zombies in a nonsensical series of settings with strong fascist allusions... I can't figure this one at all.
RE4: Notzombies in a setting larger than a city, but smaller than a country, everyone's speaking the same language anyway, but the president's daughter is also involved. Epicness has risen again.
RE5: Notzombies in Africa. I don't know the full plot but I believe it involves adding a bunch more Notzombies in other places too, so this is at least as "epic" as RE4.
RE6: I watched the introductory trailers. We've got zombies on Air Force One, another city that's gone completely zombie, ruminations about the entire world getting turned into a zombie. Definitely shooting high on the whole epic thing.
And once we've dealt with a presidential and/or planet/wide zombie panic, where else to go that's suitably impressive but the Final Frontier?

They don't even have to resurrect him. He's got a little brother named Alex running around, and there are at least eleven others that they could pull out of their asses.

I like to think that at least one of the as-yet-unseen Wesker Children is a dead ringer for Albert but is actually a pretty nice guy. Goes to church, has a couple of kids, still very much in love with his first wife, is a really big They Might Be Giants fan. Teaches biology at a private school somewhere and has to continually convince his bros that no, it's not a clever plan to conduct tests on the students.
