Resident Evil: Casually Shooting Bees In The Hallway

Just in time for Halloween, a new Resident Evil series thread!

EJpFn.jpg

I was going to write a big fancy OP but I really think the gametrailers Resident Evil retrospective sums everything I could say about these games up.

Spoilered for 5 embedded videos.
These games are awesome (for the most part).

RE1 can currently be bought on PSN and RE2 and 3 are rumored to be released soon.

Oh and these are hilarious,
Resident Hazard
Resident Hazard 2

    So, to my shame, despite being the huge resident evil fan that I am, I've never played through RE4. I've played the first chapter probably 4 times, but never gotten much further then that. I'm finally making a serious go, and I'm on 5-2, and good lord that is a LONG game.

    Yeah my girlfriend thought it looked like Bruce Campbell.

    A better cover is

    952539-boxart_pal_residentevil4_large_super.jpg

    Reminds me of the ICO pal cover, because it is superior to the US cover.

    I've looked in vain for a proper wallpaper version of this cover art. If anyone has one please post it.

    They should totally release RE1 on the PAL PSN.

    I fully believe this. :(

    Resident Evil is probably one of the best series in gaming.

    2 is still my favorite of the bunch. I had it on Nintendo64, I played it so many times I could literally run through it in less than 3 hours.

    5 didn't tie up all loose ends did it? Cause I want an RE6, maybe have Barry as main character.

    It's like the N-word and the C-word had a baby, and it was raised by all the bad words for Jews.

    Too bad the music for the duel shock version sucks.

    Also to bad they left the original voice acting out of the remake. It should have at least been an unlockable extra.

    Hi5 on this. I was the same way.

    I wish I could say I was like that with the rest of the games, but I didn't have a PSOne until -after- I got a PS2, and I barely did any PS1 gaming on my PS2, so I missed out on the first and third in the series and just haven't made an effort to get them. I didn't really care for 4 either, but I'm not going to start that argument.

    But I did play Code: Veronica on my Dreamcast. Er, Once.

    Fixed that for ya. I replayed the REmake a few months ago, and everything about it still holds up after all this time, especially the visuals. I just couldn't get into RE5, though; it felt like they were trying to amp up RE4's formula way too much, which didn't sit well with me. Up until then, though, the whole series has been great, Zero included (I am an unashamed Rebecca fanboy, so sue me). Can't wait until Darkside Chronicles comes out in a few months.

    I think 5 was fairly good. I've never beaten it as Chris though. I played Co-op with my brother, and he wanted to be Chris. Had to play through as Sheva, after that I couldn't get used to Chris's right handedness.

    Hrm, anyone have any recommendations for a good RE4 lets play? I played through up till the castle on my own, but had to give up the disk around then (was borrowing from a friend). I don't think I have that save anymore, nor do I think I actually want to play it. Though I wouldn't mind watching someone else do it.

    As badass as that would be, you have to admit that Darkside Chronicles is looking pretty darn good. They've certainly improved the atmosphere and tension from Umbrella Chronicles from the videos we've seen.

    Of course, the fact that Capcom just lazily ported the REmake and Zero to the Wii with barely-there motion controls doesn't make me very hopeful we'll see any more properly upgraded versions of the earlier games.

    This, and also 3 with REmake all on one disc. I would totally re-buy a Wii for this.

    OCD be damned!

    I remember watching my brother play through the first 3 games. I'm not sure if he actually managed to beat 1 but I did see the end of 2 and 3. The cutscene in 1 where you see the first zombie and he looks at you over his shoulder scared the shit out of me when I was a kid.

    I miss the old school RE setup. The new ones just don't have the same kind of atmosphere.

    Oh man Resident Evil 2 with PS3/360 level graphics. Droool. Not much chance we'd see that though, I think Capcom has unfortunately put the old RE formula out to pasture. Because the world needs more 3rd person action games.

    Man, I LOVED RE1. I remember quoting lines of the game for years after we played it. When I first got it for PS1 I would invite friends over to walk down the hallway where the dogs jump out without telling them the type of game it was. Scaring people is fun :)

    I see what you did there last summer.

    As clunky and corny as the series is, I love it. And this isn't nostalgia talking. Aside from RE4 (which I played when I came out on the Cube), I hadn't played an RE game until last October. I played RE1 DC, REmake, and RE2. Still got a ways to go. I'll probably pop in RE3 and Code Veronica for this year's month of spooky games.

    Only in so far as Resident Evil 4 ceased to be Resident Evil.

    And if it did, well, it began life anew as Resident Awesome.

    Resident Evil 4 is a really good game, but it is bittersweet for me because I really enjoyed the old RE games and I fear that those games are dead and gone.

    Funny that Capcom give up on the original RE formula, but they refuse to let the light gun games die. Darkside Chronicles does look amazing for a WII game.

    The merchant is what elevated RE4 from an very good over the shoulder shooter to an excellent game in general. I like the implication that he wears contact lenses to fit in with the villagers.

    Hey, who else thought that the monks and villagers were also getting all their weapons from him?

    Racism.

    Wait, no.

    It didn't really have the same big game changes as the first, and those that were there were nothing revolutionary. Kind of like how Metroid Prime 2 wasn't as good as Metroid Prime 1.
