^ Gods I love that inventory screen. Caught myself some fish early on and kept a nice golden egg too
^ Turning the corner out of the Big Cheese's house and there is Dr. Salvador with his trusty chainsaw and bag over his head
^ More villagers/Ganados that were not triggered but happy to stand there. Don't worry, there are plenty of mobs elsewhere that will spawn mid area and run at you!
^ This is going to awkward to write up. The justified use of force...
^ This is fine. Nothing to see here.
^ Spot of fishing... never did shoot the water with my gun more I should have!
^ Ah El Gigante. Good thing I always free that poor doggy early on.
^ I can't remember how I was killed the first time but it was a dumb way that I kept going with
^ The Merchant is just the best. How does he get around?
^ Chainsaw Sisters - managed to rifle them to death as usual.
^ Flying Ganado.
^ Finally completed some of these. Well worth buying the maps.
^ They have fecking machine guns.
^ Again, way to telegraph this guys...
^ This would be SO much easier if my mission were to kill not save Ashley.
^ Her section was grand just spoopy knights to worry about
^ Air Force One is way nicer, eh Ashley?
^ Thankfully she's off again no more escort missions for a while...
^ Fired my RPG at the two Edward Scissorhands in the back, killing the unarmoured one and injuring the other...
^ Sold the other bit by mistake! Oh well
^ TWO El Gigantes?
^ Every time I play this game he gets stuck.
^ This was way more fun this time.
^ Mecha Salazer
^ Never played this minigame before. Nice way to get cash. Easy to just keep retrying (x3) to get all the prizes.
^ Oh go on. It's only Normal difficulty.
^ Had to sell stuff to get it though...
^ These guys are fine.
^ Stay there... forever...
^ Americans and their driving!
^ This scene. I really struggled with it the first time on the Cube but grand on the PC! All QTEs on the Steam version were grand.
^ Press X to sit? Of course.
^ Krauser Battle Time! Or how I learned to stop worrying and love the knife.
^ I was ridiculously well stocked up for the Krauser battle.
^ "That's a big thing you have there" -
^ PLAGAS OUT
^ Saddler loves rapping with Leon
^ More untriggered Ganados... this is fine as I mentioned before they fecking whaled me in other sections
^ OK NOW the plaga is out, sorry.
^ Almost there...
^ Nuked Saddler.
^ Ada gets me killed on the jetski - how I always die in the end...
^ Two more deaths on the jet ski... short game overall but over multiple play sessions
^ I will never have that much money...
^ Brief playing of Professional Difficulty. Verdict: HARD
^ Never played this before. It was REALLY fun!
^ Difficulty level: Ada. Murderer of Ganados and Chickens. I loved how you could buy her weapons fully upgraded and ready to rock, might help explain why it seemed that bit harder earlier on.
^ Having only played RE2 briefly before I never 'got' Ada - now I do.
^ The entire parallel game was fun.
^ Upgraded weapons made El Gigante embarrassingly easy here.
^ Pretty sure it was a dumb death. Oh well. OH I remember, it was a QTE within an FMV that I totally missed. I was not paying attention and was sacrificed during a cut scene!
^ It was just a nicely done game within a game.
^ Repeat the cage spot.
^ Thankfully it was not a QTE.
^ Also was murdered by none other than a ship cannon, but it was a fun scene.
^ The other three times were Krauser x 2 (didn't know I could use the knife for some reason, IT WAS SO EASY) and Saddler (also knifed him and shotgun)
I will leave Mercenaries, the Ada minigame collecting plagas and professional difficulty for some other time, not sense in squeezing the game entirely of all the fun.
I remember breezing through Normal on the GameCube a few times but it was difficult on this remaster/PC version. I obviously played 99% of this with a newly acquired controller (my first PC game to get such a treatment) but not down to that. Controls were grand, but the AI director that is apparently in this screwed me royal.
Still a top top game.
