Ugh I found the USS jackets that they were giving away on InsertedEvil. Since I pretty much missed the whole contest, I searched it up to see if I could just obtain one normally and it's $149. Argh. And then like a $10 shipping on top of that.

I dunno Wesker seemed pretty dismissive towards everyone but Chris in RE5. He seemed to enjoy hanging out with Birkin at least, well enough that he was willing to kill a whole evening watching Rebecca Chambers and Billy Coen dick around a mansion for an evening with him.

Was Not-Buscemi even ever in a scene with Wesker? I've beaten RE5 like 4 times and I can't remember.

I'm pretty sure he wasn't actually. The most interaction he had was with masked Jill. I don't think we even saw him with Excella, even though he references her.

I like how one the achievements for making progress in the Umbrella Security Service storyline is just straight up called 'Betrayal', like, yeah, no one saw that coming.

The extra little bit that notes that the campagin completion achievements are for 'the USS campaign' make me wonder if there's actually seperate campaing for those contractors? Special Forces? People in the 'Triple Impact' trailer. Seems wierd to give them actual character and make them the polar opposites of the main characters if they don't get used in any capacity beyond glorified multiplayer skins.

There's no achievements for another campaign though. I mean there are hidden achievements but they could just be other campaign related events.

Well, what a shock. Gamestop hosed me over on the Revelations preorder. When I went in to preorder the game, I specifically asked if it came with the case. The guy said "Oh yeah, it's great" and we had a conversation about how a physical object is such a better preorder bonus than all the digital content they're always doing now.

Today I go to pick up my copy, and I get, "Sorry, we got an email saying only preorders placed before Jan 13 get the case."

I returned the game immediately and bought it from amazon, but what the gently caress. I wanted that case.

If I am going to preorder REOC from a major retailer, which one should I do?

I saw bestbuy, amazon, and gamestop all have "pre-order bonuses", none of which state exclusive, which is nice, meaning I can probably buy the other later, like in deadrising2's costume things.

I have no idea the stats of the weapon packs but each sounds nice, the thing is, does the LE(if there is one?) contain a super voucher or anything? I'd really like to get my hands on the best deal, and while march isn't exactly close, I would like to lock in my budget for the game, day 1.

The Limited Edition is $10 more and contains all the bonus weapons +2 unknown ones. Preordering also gives you an alt costume pack for your characters. For some reason Amazon must have sold out of it's pre-order alottment of special editions at the moment but other stores still have it.

Raccoon City got here a couple days early! I played the first level of the campaign. It's pretty fun, the gameplay is pretty smooth, shooting guys is fun. I did encounter a bug once where my NPC teammates wouldn't move far enough forward and I had to slowly nudge them into place with my body.



So it's pretty fun at least? There's alot of negative feelings toward this game and I'm just hoping it's at least decent.

Also I'm picturing night at the roxbury except resident evil and one person pushing everyone towards an exit.

Ran Four Eyes in the campaign, but I'm finding the pheromone grenade to not be as useful online as I was hoping.

Online I pick Vector, because his additional run speed and cloaking is pretty sick. Mainly it's just really nice to cloak and then melee stunlock someone (oh god how am I suppose to do this 10 times in one match) or cloak, get up close, and then unload my semi-auto shotgun into their face. At such a close range, the shotgun knocks them on their rear end, and then it's fun times from there.

Is the Samurai Edge really good? I have the Matilda from the weapon DLC which is nice, but the I have like 27k exp and I'm trying to decide between the MOB Special or the Samurai Edge. (Picked up a MOB special during a match and it was glorious)

I really want a mic so I can communicate with dudes, what's a cheap and reliable microphone for the PS3?

Also: anyone want to group up for Professional campaign runs in an effort to reach S+? Basically, loads of kills, die no more than once (so I hear), find a handful of intel (Spectre can do that), and finally, beat the level below the Par time.

I mean it's probably doable with bots, but eh. They sometimes run in front of my line of fire, and also I'd prefer if another player would like to trigger Birkin's QTE for a change

Plus campaign missions are like 5k+ exp per run anyways.

Well, for those who are trying to get the S+ achievement/trophies, here's a little interesting thing on the S+ ranking

Basically to sum it up, the S+ is indeed possible on Veteran (just as the trophy description says), however it's actually probably easier to do it on Professional because of how the scoring is done.

Dodging instinctively would be so much easier if I didn't need L3 for it.

Anyways, I just played the gayest game of Survivor ever. It was just me and this Beltway versus a squad of four dudes who were all pretty good. We're just getting blown apart and basically the helicopter lands but they don't get on it. They just circle the helicopter and just guard it, to stop me and my team (two more joined in mid-game) from getting in. Sure enough, my team can't seem to break through for some reason.

I was like half asleep and just not wanting to give a gently caress anymore so I just took the long way around once I realized they weren't going to board the helicopter. I came up behind them and just got on the heli. All of a sudden they drop all the poo poo they were doing and scramble for the remaining 3 seats.

I thought that was kind of amusing that all of sudden they were just like "haha gently caress you guys there's only 3 seats left and one of them is MINE"

You know what would be cool? If we see characters of the Wolfpack appear in future Resident Evil titles, maybe even just as cameos.

ORC is an alternate timeline, a what-if. But that doesn't mean that in the canon storyline Wolfpack cannot exist. It would just mean maybe they didn't go to RC, but did other Umbrella-y things. (Mainly I just want to see some Vector/Hunk student/master interaction but yeah)

Also applies to enemy players, as I unfortunately found out I think.

So apparently Melee then Action button results in a brutal kill, usually a face stomp. Melee then Ability button results in role specific kill. And then I think there's another combination that results in you shooting the enemy's face at point blank?

If you hold the melee button like you are taking a zombie shield to a Spec Ops, you will hold them at gun point. You can then either pretty the fire button to execute them or press the melee button again to knock them out.

ah so I must have held the button instead of mashing it at some point. Is there a point to knocking them out as opposed to executing them? I got knocked out once and just got back up and shot the dude while he was distracted.

Also while talking about that, is there a difference between using the ability brutal kill versus the regular brutal kill? The only difference I *think* I'm noticing is that the ability kills are slightly faster in animation, so you aren't as vulnerable for as long. Otherwise why expend your ability cooldown for it? (minus Beltway/Tweed's detonation kill)

Different classes have different specific melee kills. Four eyes I think sticks a control pheromone grenade in them. I think Spectre punches them with a flash grenade. I still haven't figured out what Lupo's does except for knock down everyone around you.

And from what I can tell, there is no reason at all to just knock them out.

Hmm poo poo, I should try some of these I guess. I think my Vector/Willow did a really quick twirl and slash, so it was just a faster melee kill.

I usually just hit action button though, because usually when I hit the ability button, the melee kill doesn't register and I end up activating my ability.

Also is it just me or is Super Soldier kind of a bitch to deal with? It's got a long recharge sure, but if you turn a corner and bump into some guy who then activates it in front of you, you're kind of boned unless he's a really bad shot and you run away. (Or you turn on your own Super Soldier to outlast his.) It was pretty hilarious to see someone dash up to me to start stunlocking me in melee for a quick kill, but right before he could, I activated Super Soldier and just unloaded into his face.
