I believe Emmanuelle is shit, though Emmanuelle 2, Emmanuelle '77 and Goodbye, Emmanuelle may be very good movies.

Sorry to be the one to have to tell you this, but 5 is good and 6 is also good, actually.

Never drive a car when you're a fish

I've never particularly been down with Resident Evil games before, for a variety of personal reasons, but there's something so compelling about this endearingly dimwitted bad luck charm that has me entranced.

I mean if you like them who am i to change your mind, I've completed most REs multiple times but 6 just felt i dunno, a bit off. I only played Leons campaign though so I'm not the judge

5 definitely isn't as good as 4 but the co-op really elevates it.

Sounds like it could be fun, just gotta be in the right mood for something like that. Never played it, but I hear it's just over the top RE craziness.

I've done it a few times and it's neither as much fun nor as skill-dependant as it sounds. Most of it comes down to wrangling a huge group of enemies towards a score multiplier and killing them all with a grenade right after popping it. If you're going through them without an overarching strategy, killing enemies as they appear and doing it as fast as possible to maintain your combo multiplier, it's nigh impossible to get five stars.

Man i sure banged my head against it, it was always 5 stars with Wesker on the level on the floating base that me and a friend struggled with.

Really we just wanted the hand cannon to justify another playthrough lol

It's cool but I burned out hard. They've gotta find a way to make the battles less tedious.

Like A Dragon's RPG battle system is really rudimentary and not that fleshed out. I liked that game but there's a ton I'd change about it.

Actually I think you'll find that was a subtle nod to the cult classic series "Dragon Quest" wherein the only way to succeed in the 80s and 90s iterations was to grab your turbo controller and waste your time puttering into trash mobs. Truly masterful ludonarrative implementation

It's good in general, but you can tell they could've used more time to balance it, which makes sense given that the switch to RPG format was made late-ish in development. Makes me hopeful for what they can do for the next one, if any developer iterates well on systems it's RGG

I'm pretty sure I did. And I know how to grind, I don't play Yakuza games for that. I platted DQ11.

I rarely go into the field, motherfucker.

I swear theres no ps5 stock as long as I have the stock tracker page up, but as soon as I forget to pull it back up after doing a restart for one reason or another sure enough there ends up being stock, it's happened 3 times already I'm starting to think it's a sign.

it sort of blows my mind that I've watched, in despair, many of my favorite turn based rpg franchises slowly all become ARPGs. meanwhile yakuza is over here switch to turn based.

If you seriously want one the best way is to follow an alert Twitter account that also runs a Discord, you get alerts within seconds of them dropping then.

It still might not be for you, but using the first ten minutes to judge it isnít very effective since the first hour is pretty much a hide and seek horror game and then the whole rest of the game is classic RE in first person.
