RESIDENT EVIL....


#508

I love that there’s a note about the chess piece fuse keys explaining the history of an electrical company based on “fun!”

And folks in Raccoon City said, yes, we need more fun electricians


#509

that was one of my favorite parts, and then the guy drops that’s he in all these chess organizations

I really love the lengths they went to make all the campy shit slightly more plausible


#510

Will you take the DEATH DONGLE?


#511

the name


#512

I noticed that haha

I guess bobby fischer is canon to the RE universe now??


#513

bobby fischer’s middle name was james tho


#514

maybe they were going for “Robert Bobby”


#515

Daisy chaining SCSI devices and giving them each the right ID in the chain and terminating the final device is a huge missed puzzle opportunity here!

My favorite of them all:

In loving memory of those who served with the valor of lions, the nobility of unicorns, and whose ultimate sacrifice is as pure as the maidens of old.

!!!

to be fair I could imagine a police union using language like this


#517

they had so much fun with the whole “well, we had to retrofit an art gallery” bit

picture a couple of cops sitting in the office at like 7pm mulling over “the nobility of unicorns”

Here’s a dump of the lovely convenience store products. I can’t tell if these are recreations of original RE2 art, modern Japanese takes on '90s American commercial advertising, or modern Japanese takes on modern American commercial advertising. But this stuff is my favorite sort of embedded culture in games.

This one exists on a jokier plane than the rest; it’s cute but I’m not sure how I feel about it.

The prices are pretty good for the time and good enough that I wonder why the beer sale is $32 for a 12-pack…I guess the cheaper brand is $24 for a twelve pack. Limited Time Offer!

THE DARK BEAN

Don’t talk to me until I’ve had THE DARK BEAN

Last night I made $57 on the Steam marketplace and I’ve been debating how to spend it.

These screens have sold me on this game. Thank you.


#522

Dead Rising (especially the made-in-Japan 1st game) is also loaded with this e.g. “Jill’s Sandwiches” and hyper detailed fake ads/print media but can’t seem to pull good photo examples online. I remember a “Crislip’s” billboard somewhere in RE6 with a similar font so they probably are using some of the same people in the art department.


#523

I got to the part where you got to run to the police station and as soon as I ran from the light of the fire I couldn’t see anything but dark grey and all the lines across the screen my 11 year old tn monitor makes that you can see in the background sometimes, I should probably wait til I got an hdr monitor to play this thing


#524

that’s a common bug, try capping your fps


#525

the magazine rack is so good


#526

#527

First thing I did was run far away from the gas station as possible, waiting for Mr. Kennedy to tell me why he wouldn’t.

Last time I laughed at the magazine/book rack but didn’t expect this much going on, don’t think I saw anything so ripe in RPD. Gotta comb further.
