If not being a Resident Evil game is the best part of a game, that doesn't speak awfully well for the rest of it. I know nothing about the development of the game or whatever, but it felt to me very much like Capcom was developing some decent/generic action title and decided to tack on the Resident Evil name to push copies. Seemed pretty forced.

If I want to play an more high strung, action-y horror game, I'll play Eternal Darkness. Man that game is the shit.

That's correct. Although technically Cheryl was created to contain the soul of Alessa, and the two sort of became one when Cheryl returned to Silent Hill, and then Alessa was reborn as Heather, so technically all three are the same person. Like Fei in Xenogears.

The best part of that is that Fei is his own dad. Or something.

One more thing I forgot about Drakengard. Is it just me, or are these the most annoying characters in any video game, ever? "Caim, you must eliminate the targets on the map before they escape! Agh, you're so evil! You must stop your killing ways! Destroy these children for bonus points! Will your blind hatred never cease!? The empire killed your parents! Ragh!"

Considering that I generally hate RE games with a passion and RE4 was fantastic then yes.

It's not a decent/generic action game inasmuch as it is an outright amazing action game. It got given Game of the Year by all these publications for a reason.

Just play it with a few other people for a few minutes and watch the hours pass by.

There were at least four of us, and I'm pretty sure everyone who didn't own the game voted to stop playing it.

Hahahaha, yeah, and The Da Vinci Code is an incredibly written book with a compelling and belivable story and engaging characters.

And saying you liked RE4 when you didn't like the rest of the series...well, the two aren't all that related. That's like saying, "I hated Super Mario 64, but I loved Mario Kart 64." Aside from name and company, the two don't have a hell of a lot in common. Resident Evil 4 is a decent action game. But because I was looking forward to a new Resident Evil game from Resident Evil 4 (now why would I think that?) I couldn't even really enjoy it for that. Shattering disappointment.

I also didn't really get the story but it didn't grab me at all so I probably wasn't paying attention. The only reason I even bother bringing that up was because of how much I love the Resident Evil continuity.

In conclusiuon, it's too dangerous to go outside.

Do you think RE4 would have been better if they had ditched all that action and included more puzzles based on putting together emblems and carrying around different types of cranks (with lots and lots and lots and lots of oh-so-fun backtracking)?

I tried playing RE4 once and gave up due to the bad controls.

Upcoming RPGs (in America):

gRimgRiMoiRe (6/26) [PS2]
Hoshigami Remix (6/26) [NDS]
Persona 3 (7/24) [PS2]
Growlanser V (August) [PS2]
Heroes of Mana (8/14) [NDS]
Luminous Arc (8/14) [NDS]
Rune Factory: A Fantasy Harvest Moon (8/14) [NDS]
Wild ARMs V (8/28) [PS2]
Soul Cradle (9/11) [PS2]

Interesting things coming out in Japan:

Growlanser VI (6/21) [PS2]
Mana-Khemia: Gakuen no Renkinjutsu Shitachi (6/21) [PS2]
Shinseiki Evangelion: Battle Orchestra (6/28) [PS2]
Tales of Fandom Vol. 2 (6/28) [PS2]
Doki Doki Majo Shinpan (7/5) [NDS]
Memories Off #5 Encore (7/12) [PS2]
Pop'n Music 14 Fever (7/12) [PS2]
beatmania IIDX 13 DistorteD (8/30) [PS2]
Summon Night Twin Edge: Seireitachi no Kyoumei (8/30) [NDS]
Nanatsuiro Drops Pure! (9/6) [PS2]

A very cool looking SRPG called Magician's Academy just came out in Japan. It appears to be based on a light novel (ライトノベル)! NISA and Atlus are already getting requests to localize it, but it probably won't happen. Look up まじしゃんず あかでみい on nicovideo if you want to see some videos.

Also, according to Heisei Democracy, some highly anticipated new eroge localizations will be announced at AX. HD has ties to JAST, so I'd trust them. Personally, I'm betting on Da Capo 1 and 2.

Oh, and there's going to be some sort of Negima game for the Wii.

don't forget only having limited saves and having to go back to the storage box constantly because you can only carry like 4 items at once and your weapon, ammo, save ribbons, all puzzle items, healing items, items you need to dispose of zombies properly, etc etc all count

They were pretty awesome controls compared to the rest of the series I can tell you.

I didn't have an issue with the controls in Resident Evil 4 but if you play any of the previous Resident Evil games (excluding Gaiden, heh) for more than thirty minutes you have the controls down without thinking. And uhh the items thing is more to make you have to think ahead and make sure that you don't have an unlimited number of options to get yourself out of bad situations you get yourself into. It never seemed like that big of a deal to me. (Unless you were playing the "Real Mode" (or whatever it was called) thing in the GCN version of Resident Evil. That shit was brutal.)

Is it not possible to love old-school RE and RE4 at the same time? I kinda do.

While we're on the subject, what's the best 3rd party controller to use for Gamecube RE? Nintendo's sucks balls, and the MadKatz one I was using is starting to die (and was never ideal in the first place).

Nintendo's controllers suck, because they don't break when you throw them on a regular basis. (as opposed to Sony's which break themselves out of boredom)

fucking nintendo making shitty controllers that don't shatter

I've always been happy with Nintendo's controllers, but I find the GC ones poorly suited for old-school Resident Evil. Analogue sucks shit for that kind of control scheme, and I find the d-pad to be difficult to navigate well with.

I will be the first person to get a copy of Persona 3 if I have to kill for it.

Until then, though, I'm going on a nostalgia binge with a dose of sadism. Armored Core: Nexus on one side (aiming for all S ranks on Revolution), and FFV on another (with a twist: I make sure to max out a Job on everyone before each boss. Then I hit Red Mage. Fuck.)

Fair enough. I haven't played any of the GCN RE games.

Also, call me stupid, and bad at life, but I just got to the final boss in MMBN4 and...what part of that fight is possible again? My folder must suck more than I thought it did.
