Love/hate #18 Resident Evil 4

Might as well do another one of these after playing the remastered PC version to death in July. I originally played it on the GameCube and LOVED it and even started a file on the PS2 version when I got a hold of that at one point. I picked up the Steam version during the Summer Sale 2018 and it was once again a blast.


^ 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...


^ LUIS


^ 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.


^ HHKHKJGJHMJHVHG


^ This was way more fun this time.


^ Mecha Salazer


^ Nice...


^ 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.


^ It.


^ 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" - Leon Ada


^ PLAGAS OUT


^ Saddler loves rapping with Leon





^ MIKE


^ 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.

Love/hate #19 Fallout: New Vegas No DLCs played Mr. House ending Low Int Melee Hardcore Run

As in the title I opted to play a Melee specialist with 1 Intelligence and decent everything else. It was Hardcore mode so I tagged Surviva...
