^Welp. Though I played the PC port, which lacked mouse support, so maybe there's some bitterness left from that.

To be honest, my only complaint regarding 4 and 5 is the existance of tank controls.

The PC port was loving SHOCKINGLY bad. They had to patch light levels into it. The whole game was full brightness on release.

It would, but it'd be nice if sexual orientation was a deliberate character design decision and not something that gets pasted on to a character nearly twenty years after they first appeared.

Maybe it's more of a reference to the early part of Tomb Raider where you're constantly running away from poo poo and have no weapons? Although there is a bit pretty far on that seems to work better if you try to sneak and silently dispose of baddies that's a bit more tense than the rest of the game.

Yeah. I found the actual lead up to be just amazing. Sure, like I said, the fight has some issues and can be a serious roadblock, but I did it on my first try and it had me on the edge of my seat at all times.

Also, people should play this in Easy first.

Yeah, I was on easy so it wasn't a complete ball smashing bastard of a fight, but I could see how it would be if enemies had more health and did more damage. Plus I felt bad because the guy just keeps yelling "Stop, I'm human!" as he tries to buzzsaw your face off.

I'm getting towards the end of Revelations and hitting the point where everyone that should be dead is miraculously alive and everyone is working for everyone else. It's utter ridiculous nonsense and reminds me of why I enjoy the resident evil games. Sure, I enjoy the gameplay but I'm not really happy unless I've been quadruple crossed by the end. And there'd BETTER be a post credits sequence revealing I've been quintuple crossed after all.

Code Veronica wraps up Claire's plot line (she finds her brother and decides that after a trip to Antarctica, Umbrella can go gently caress itself, she's going back to college), and establishes Wesker's return and his new rivalry with Chris. Despite the fact that Jill can be the one who faces Wesker at the end of RE1 (and RE3 makes her ending the one that makes the most sense), Wesker apparently decides that Chris is the one who has always been a thorn in his side.

Even though Wesker also says that his plan in RE1 worked perfectly, Chris still hosed it up somehow, so now they are archenemies because everyone is insane.

This illustrates perfectly why making any attempt to reconcile any of the RE game plots is a waste of time. Basically dumb poo poo is going to happen that makes no sense, so just sit back and enjoy Wesker bellowing "CHHHHHHRRRRRRIIIIISSSSSSS!!!!" every few minutes, then press X to punch the gently caress out of a boulder until it explodes.

I always hoped one day the series would return to its batshit insane puzzles. It'd be better if they weren't as arbitrary, but really co-op should've meant more puzzles, not less. Two heads are better than one, right?

Co op was a chance for some 1960s batman problem solving poo poo. A series of utterly nonsensical clues that you and your partner bounce off each other to get to the ultimate conclusion.

I actually like Leon's campus ordeal...with the cavet that I liked it for atmosphere and the setting itself vs game play per se (but it does pick up quickly. One think I liked is that while the game still had its wacky secret facilities, the design of the city and it's layout...actually made sense.

No disagreement on the stealth parts....bleh that's why I never really bother much with Jakes campaign after a certain point.

RE6 has one of the most varied campaigns in gaming and hell at the very least of the series. It's almost like Capcom wanted to experiment and use feedback for where to move the series next. I loved the variety though.

Leon's campaign consists entirely of him getting civilians murdered just by showing up. "Oh hi gunshop guys oops, sorry, you're dead. Never mind, off to this church, hi people hiding in the church, oops, sorry, that's a monster that breathes death, you're dead.

I was wondering if I was the only one who noticed it. Chris isn't much better (but other soldiers do survive...not his own often), but yeah Leon is a hilarious bad luck magnet. It was one of the downsides I had with the campaign, since there isn't anything ostensibly preventing a potential rescue or at the least it's not Umbrella killing everyone this time.

Isn't it Neo Umbrella or something? I genuinely can't remember who was responsible in the end other than another nutjob releasing BOWs on the world but without the charisma of a Wesker.

Don't invite Leon to birthdays. And never get in a vehicle with him.

Hey, it's that dog!

I died to El Gigante like five times until I decided "gently caress it" and just rocked the shotgun instead of trying to pea shooter it. Still am unclear how you're expected to avoid it most times. I had inconsistent success with running between his legs and oftentimes trying to run around him would result in me getting grabbed. Either way, he went down and then I promptly died to the zombie dogs afterwards because I'm bad at video games.

I rescued Ashley.

I bought the Red9, the stock for the Red9, and bought every upgrade I could for the Red9.

that's all for now

Did you run up his back and stab his parasite when you got the chance or did you just keep shooting him?

The TMP makes for great extra firepower against early bosses or minibosses that you don't want to get too close to. That's about it though; the shotgun handles crowds and the magnum takes care of the later bosses. But for a brief window early on, the TMP is quite useful - just not ever really required.

I think it kills those flying fuckers pretty quickly.

If you worked within the AI's limitations, you could do well with it. I used to kit out a handgun and funnel all the ammunition to the CPU partner, who would obligingly use that handgun to blow the balls off a gnat at two hundred yards. AI don't "miss."

Steve is and shall always be the reverse gold standard and none shall step to his mic. He saves you twice, endangers you more than twice, and proceeds to nearly cut you in half. Helena has a mildly annoying gimmick but otherwise is a breakdancing shotgun ninja with mad wrestle skills; to question her is to gamble wit'cha health.

In fairness to Steve it wasn't his fault really that he was trying to cut you in half. That makes up for precisely none of his other tedious bullshit, however.

In The Evil Within, if you focus on upgrading your pistol ammo capacity from the beginning the game starts showering you with ammo for it and you'll rarely be low on ammo. Not sure if they ever patched it or not.

You have to balance the stress of being the go between of a large government operation and Leon's insanity:


"You'll have to repeat that Leon, I can't hear you. All this interference sounds like a chainsaw or something . I'm going to tell the tech boys to sort their poo poo out."


"Good news Leon, the BSAA got caught doping again. We're certain to win next weeks inter-agency baseball tournament!"


"What's that Leon, another helicopter? What happened to the last one? .... *sigh* Fine, I'll start filling out the requisition forms."

On the plus side we've lost all contact with Lab B for several days now, so it's safe to assume the idiot tried to inject some T-Virus in a praying mantis or something and got his entire lab murdered. Serves him right.
