    I've been playing with the infinite ammo pistol a bit, so I've been shooting downed zombies without fear of wasting ammo. You can shoot off the limbs of zombies that are playing dead, but it seems like you can't pop their heads if they aren't walking around.

    You definitely can. It can sometimes take A LOT of shots, though.

    That makes more sense.

    I guess the shotgun and magnum probably still pop heads of downed zombies in one shot.

    In the last two playthroughs, I shot the remaining three limbs off the zombie that follows you into the safety deposit room. Poor wiggly angry torso. He's so slow!

    You can get all four.
    I'm a little disappointed that there's no trophy for that; 'Okay, we'll call it a draw'.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    Yeah he comes in with just one arm, so he's just a torso when I'm done

    I'm doing a B run with the infinite pistol and it felt so good to kill those 3 zombies in the lobby. They were my bane on my first B run.

    So one of the things about Mr X is this: Mr X will basically never kill you. That's not what he's for. His purpose, in the game design, is to disrupt you enough that something else kills you. He fucks up your game plan, he presents an issue that you absolutely have to address. You know how to deal with zombies, you may even know how to deal with lickers, but Mr X changes all of the rules around those things.

    Did you just realise that lickers are blind? You can ignore them almost totally in most situations by not running! Stupid lickers! Except now Mr X is here, and you have to run. He's not as fast as you, but the lickers are, and now they know where you are.

    The library is the example in a microcosm: if you have all the time in the world, the library is easy. Lure the zombies away (they're dumb and predictable), climb down the ladder (that they can't use) and move the stacks. Easy. The library is easy. Now add Mr X. He moves towards you and never loses focus on that goal. He can climb up the ladder. He can climb down the ladder. You can't kill him or distract him. He's predictable and slow, so you can kite him away but... remember the zombies? They remember you.

    The reason he doesn't follow you into dead ends isn't even really a mercy thing, it's that he has no purpose in those rooms. You'd kite him around and get away, who gives a shit. He's there to force you into a fuck up, not just kill you. If other monsters are going to get you, Mr X will literally just sit there and watch, he doesn't give a shit if it's him that kills you and you generally can't trick him into running interference on your behalf.

    Mr X is a fantastic, fantastic piece of game design. Once he's introduced, he's always a factor in the station (which you just got done memorising) and his audio cues are extremely effective at making sure you're aware of his location at all times.

    It's welcome here anyway, because that's an amazing summation of why Mr. X was effective at terrifying me without seeming absolutely unfair and cheap.

    SilverWind pointed out to me that the idea that the police station used to be an art museum, that's bunk

    Now, that it was a big escape room...

    And that's my first survival horror Resident Evil campaign beaten (ie not 4, 5, or 6). Great fun, and super nerve-wracking in a great way.

    Pretty sure I set a world record here for Standard Leon A. 12:21:54 with 58 saves.

    Who wants to bask in my mediocrity and cowardice? *poses wildly*

    In the backstory I think its being remodeled but it was a private art museum. I figure Umbrella donated it so Irons could multitask and direct security for the lab complex and maintain his public face

    Wasn't the police station supposed to be designed by the same architect as the RE1 mansion?

    Apparently I was thinking of the mansion from Code Veronica, not the police station.

    I really just kind of want to play Code Veronica again

    Maybe I'll try to find my Dreamcast copy

    EDIT: Or apparently I could just play Code Veronica X on PS4, huh

    So I did a thing where I fooled around and spent some resources unwisely. Coulda gotten those flame grenades and gotten out without waking the zombambos, but no, I had to be a trigger-happy fool. You know if you get bitten from behind you might get knocked right down to Danger, even on Standard difficulty? Shit's real. And then in the morgue I got grabbed and used a grenade, which would have probably saved my behind against a Licker, and... it was a whole thing.

    So I pressed forward without saving to see what was ahead of me, so I'd be prepared. And I doused the helicopter.

    And that's enough for me tonight!

    So at first I disagreed with Tube that Claire is more of a badass than Leon. But I'm about 2 hours into run B and...

    Nope. Yup. Claire > Leon. 100%

    Claire's definitely my favourite of the two, but I'm also a sucker for Leon's dumb one liners.

    "Chew on that."

    I love it.

    Speaking of, I got grabbed and tackled to the floor by a zomber while playing as Claire, it chomped her, then she grabbed it and smashed its head into the ground. P.sure it popped.

    Oh brilliant

    Leon 2nd run end.
    I am sad he doesn't say "Game Over" when shooting Mr X with the rocket launcher like he does in the original.

    so speedrunners have found that knife damage is tied to framerate
    if you uncap your framerate and can get it up to about 120FPS, there are certain bosses that will die to the knife in as little as two hits

    Yesterday a dog jumped at me and Claire went “Jesus!” Just like I would have done

    The incidental reaction dialogue for the characters responding to things enemies do is uncanny enough to be genuinely very funny

    I shot a guy in the head like six times and when he didn't even fall down Claire just says "Oh you asshole" as she's reloading

    That is the weirdest gat damn thing

    Humor can be dissected as a frog can, but dies in the process.

    William Birkin is voiced by Frank West's voice actor in this.

    So hey Capcom, if you want to toss Frank West into a bonus mode of some kind, I'm cool with that.

    In regards to the knife/framerate thing, if I had to take a guess it's that the game is calculating damage every X frames, and if the knife is in contact with an enemy on that interval, then deal damage. So more frames = more damage. They probably just balanced it at 30 or 60 or whatever the console standard is and didn't think about it too much.

    I have my phone alarm set to wake me up with louder chimes every five minutes.
    I'm wondering if I could set it up with stomps getting closer and closer until the chase music kicks in.
    Pros: It'd wake me up.
    Cons: I would never go back to sleep. Ever.

    Nobody remembers the singer. The song remains.

    He does, but you need the original soundtrack music option. (Deluxe edition DLC, dunno if it's available separately yet)
