I got this back and played through chapter 1 last night. So so good, although I think I'm still missing out on possible treasure/money-making schemes. I wanna buy that Infinite Rocket Launcher!

There's an INFINITE ROCKET LAUNCHER???

If you beat the game and then start at the beginning, the merchant dude has one for 1,000,000 units of zombie villager currency.

The roof came off my girlfriend's apartment during Katrina. This would be only mildly catastrophic except SHE HAD BORROWED MY GAMECUBE. I just realized this reading this thread and thinking about playing some RE4.
Still the best game of this generation.

Tragic, Adam!

I have done nothing the last two nights after work except play RE4, it sucked me in just like the first time through.

Well, that was a fun three nights. The Infinite Rocket Launcher (which I didn't get until chapter 5) makes things, uh, much easier. Now I kinda want to play RE2 again...was 3 any good?

I never played this! I'm thinking about picking up the Wii version and finally giving it a shot...

About how long of a game is it (just three nights?)?

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 21 June 2007 17:49 (thirteen years ago) link

15 hours? 18? I don't really remember. Since you have never played it you really, really, really should get it. Easily one of the best gaming experiences I have ever had.

got the wii version last night and spent an hour and a half getting pitchforked into oblivion while picking my jaw up off the ground @ the graphics. Skipping a generation (for all intents and purposes - I had a Dreamcast and then kinda stopped playing video games until I got my DS) helps mightily with that last point, though.

They didn't have the wii version in stock, so fuck it, I picked up the ps2 greatest hit version for twenty. No waggle, but saved ten bucks (not a big waggle fan yet, anyway). Now I just gotta find some time to play...

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 21 June 2007 19:45 (thirteen years ago) link

It is a really great game. I am not into survival horror at all, but this game is so well done that it didn't matter.

RESIDENT EVIL: THE UMBRELLA CHRONICLES is gonna be so sick. it's a house of dead style rail-shooter using the remote to aim and fire. out in october apparantly. i'm literally frothing at the mouth for this game right now.

Hey - I finally beat Resident Evil 4 tonight for the first time. Apparently it took me over 21 hours and I died over 60 times!?!

I liked the way the world you move through really feels connected and like a real place - even if at times that was a creepier place than I wanted to be. I didn't like some of the clunky things with the controls, having to scrounge through every corner and barrel for ammo, health and spare change pick-ups (just not a fun activity), and the occasional weird boss fight where you can't really harm the boss until you cross some random threshold and end up stupidly wasting a lot of (rare) ammo. The game seemed to run on a bit long - what, I had to rescue the same whiny girl FIVE times.

Jeff LeVine, Saturday, 31 January 2009 06:11 (eleven years ago) link

I recommend trying out the Mercenaries game. It's the kind of subgame that takes a lot of practice and dying over and over again to achieve high scores, but especially after seeing the way it's supposed to be done in online videos, I was really into it. This surprised the hell out of me considering I was particularly good at killing/surviving at all in the main quest (I remember dying far, far more than 60 times).

Despite putting a ton of time into Mercenaries, I never even got around to beating the main game again, I probably will revisit it at some point - it's a genuine classic. I do agree that there were some parts that dragged, but for finally redeeming the awkward gameplay and controls of the Resident Evil series, it deserves a medal.

one month passes...

got my gamecube back from my ex and started playing this again yesterday. still so much fun. i don't want to hate on RE5 because i really did like it, but RE4 just seems much more carefully thought-out. and scarier.

also, has more ridiculous/hilarious dialogue. some of it is like troll 2 level.

three years pass...

man this game is way harder than i remember it/games have gotten way easier in the past 8 years, have died like 3 times in the first village

adam, Saturday, 31 March 2012 17:56 (eight years ago) link

ps operation raccoon city is nowhere near as bad as people say

adam, Saturday, 31 March 2012 17:57 (eight years ago) link

honestly, i find it appalling how easy games are these days.

PSOD (Ste), Saturday, 31 March 2012 18:09 (eight years ago) link

i remember getting utterly slaughtered for a while on that beginning stage when i first played it. it's part of why it's such a good opening scene, there's little setup at all for how crazy it is!

Nhex, Saturday, 31 March 2012 23:18 (eight years ago) link

also, i'm almost sure RE4 is the most perfectly balanced game ever.

PSOD (Ste), Saturday, 31 March 2012 23:52 (eight years ago) link

it's also perfectly paced. i often find action games to be fatiguing--too much too fast until it becomes kinda meaningless, like a transformers movie. in RE4 each room feels pretty distinct even though there are really only a few different approaches to level design in this game: dudes coming at you down a corridor, dudes coming at you from everywhere, TOO MANY DUDES and you gotta run away, boss fight, puzzle. and jetski. i know it's coming and i'm dreading it.

adam, Monday, 2 April 2012 14:49 (eight years ago) link

i know it's coming and i'm dreading it.

man thats otm with this game, but the gameplay is so great it doesn't become a chore.
saying that i never did finish it because i accidentally deleted my save file and i was at the last section. i just couldn't handle having to redo all that again, maybe one day.

PSOD (Ste), Monday, 2 April 2012 14:55 (eight years ago) link

the first village might be the hardest part of the game! i played the hd remake a few months ago and the only other part i got into trouble was the section with the two chainsaw ladies (somehow ended up with next to zero ammo before and after that, and then you have to face this whole other section before getting to save again).

still the best game. got to play 'separate ways' for the first time too, which was a lot longer and more fun than i expected.

40oz of tears (Jordan), Monday, 2 April 2012 15:24 (eight years ago) link

the chainsaw ladies are brutal. spammed them w/ flash grenades and basically emptied every clip i had for every weapon into them, think i ended up killing them with a scoped rifle from like 10 ft away.

i never played RE5 b/c of the whole incredibly racist thing but i caved and ordered it after a 6-hr RE4 session yesterday. can't wait.

adam, Monday, 2 April 2012 16:49 (eight years ago) link

ha i did the same thing, you can get it for like ten bucks now. it pretty much sucks to play by yourself for the first half, but i thought the second half got more RE4-ish (until the last boss fight, which is terrible).

four years pass...

Anyone playing 7?

some uncanny valley territory with the actor/CGI mashup that they're attempting here. ymmv

calstars, Wednesday, 1 February 2017 02:37 (three years ago) link

three years pass...

I gave up on RE after 4, tried 5 for about 2 minutes and just barfed all over my keyboard.

But I just watched a longplay of 7, and fucking hell that game is incredible. The dlc stuff is great looking too, especially that bedroom game.
