Yeah the game gets pretty crazy. RE7 does too around the halfway point (Ethan has a chainsaw duel with Jack Baker).
One thing I liked was how they went into this 1800s style alchemy, as a predecessor of the more clinical viral research you see in the previous games. Lady Miranda was pretty much a sorceress, or an alchemist.
Again I'm not arguing Resident Evil is some high brow thoughtful masterpiece of narrative, I just think it has a fun setting that is conductive to games where you shoot monsters in the face.
Sorcery is the science of influencing change in accordance with the will. So that's pretty interesting.
Japanese games tend to do much better research on the old world which existed pre-1930s..
I can't stand most American games coz their research is just the internet, but modern-day internet is exactly what MGS 2 warned about, an excess of information, but it's all bullshit.
the worst extra mode in any RE game ever made.
Worse than RE0's Leech mode? I doubt it. I doubted you when you said Rev 2 & Rev 2 Mercs mode sucked but it really was fucking garbage.
It's funny how WW2 shaped a lot of the current establishment & dogma of the current-day world. Modern day Japan is basically run by a political system that was formed by 6 Yakuza families (Ryoichi Sasakawa, Yoshio Kodama, Nobosuke Kishi to name a few) who were freed by General Mcarthur for the sole purpose of murdering Communists. Kinda funny though, how Japan is still in Kill-Commie mode while 2021 USA are full blown Communist-symphathizers.
A similar thing happened in Italy after WW2, when loads of mafia leaders were freed by the americans and subsequently gained positions of political power.
History books regard this as an "oopsie" on the part of american troops, who assumed they were communist political prisoners. This justification is so fucking stupid it's hilarious, because even during WW2, I doubt american troops would just randomly free communist political prisoners.
I don't even think that's in American history books. I sure know that they never say fucking anything about Yakuza being allied with American military. I doubt they are anymore though. American military turned into trannies.
I'm not even exaggerating. Look at that shit!
"With a little girl, raised by two moms. Although I had a fairly typical childhood" TYPICAL? LOL!
Meanwhile China & Russia have these badass recruiting commercials which make you damn proud to be a man from those nations.
America is just weird man. There was a fucking Zombie walking around in Seattle, but if you ask reddit.
They tell you this is normal, and "nothing to see here" lol. How the fuck is she normal? Seattle women are normally fatass Landwhales. That's actually the skinniest White chick I've seen around here, lol.
It's true that she's not the first zombie roaming around in Seattle. There was another one back in 2017, but I can't find anything on the net about it. I generally don't save that shit, coz that just gets you targeted. I saw it being reposted at /pol/ and even the Brazil monkees are perplexed by what the fuck is going on in the USA, since you don't ever see anything like that in Brazil. Brazil is basically just Chicago with sexier women & an actual military police-state who just gun down everybody.
The Shit that's going on in places like Oregon or Washington though? It can only be described as insanity.
In WA state, we no longer have male & female bathrooms. We only have Uni-Sex & All-Gender bathrooms, but they're both co-ed, lol!
It must've been installed this month, coz I still remember female & male bathrooms from a month ago.
But turns out they actually love diversity, & immigrants who are not, in fact, imported en-masse to serve as a slave class for high level capitalists. It's a completely independent decision on the part of millions of people to displace themselves, and work high risk, highly debilitating job for a meager pay & no rights, that they all come to together as one. One who would oppose slavery, oops sorry, I mean asylum, is in fact a racist who doesen't like seeing all those darkies on their cotton plantations.
All of these contradictions you've pointed out are actually examples of Sorcery. This is how you take control of a populace by succumbing the collective will of a people, through their raw primal fear. That's why none of this shit makes any sense. It's not supposed to make sense. It's supposed rot your brain, so you can be rewritten with the 'correct thoughts' gifted to you by The State, which makes your anxiety go away, and in turn builds you into a more compliant slave who obeys GodDaddy-Government.
Americans are imbalanced people, they lack the Yin & Yang, they're taught to hate everything that's masculine, which is why Americans treat the government as their actual Daddy since the Government is the only presence within their lives who actually emits masculine energy. The American Government acts more like a pimp though, managing a bunch of crackwhores called the American people.
GrandGrandWizard Grandpappi Bush actually had his business sieged by the USA due to his Nazi-affilations, and supplying them with arms, but his son HW Bush (Raygun's VP), later went on to become the director of the USA CIA, Criminal organization. The CIA created most of the motherfuckers that they've supposedly fought against lol.
Wasn't the original CIA basically just Skull & Bones?
Skullbones is a fraternal order death cult, but well that doesn't exactly clash with what the CIA is lol.
Either way, even Hitler was directly inspired & funded by the USA, history has been completely whitewashed in regards of the American Eugenics Society & how their research provided the basis for Hitler's ideology, and the role that Wall Street had in funding the National Socialist party. The USA's foreign policy was always to arm a threat, in order to face a different threat, that in turn they originally armed to face a different threat lol.
So that's why Americans won't stop whining about Hitler as if Hitler were American. They fucking created him, lol.
I always thought that Hitler was just some pawn who went Rogue.
Even Resident Evil got a bit into that with their alphabet agencies funding terrorism in order to create a threat they would then react to, in order to have legislators allocate more power to them so I guess that while I make fun of RE's plots, they actually have smarter writing than 100% of modern american "entertainment" which is written specifically by social engineers to dumb down the population to the level of animals.
Have you seen the live action RE movies? They're actually good, and do a better job of paying tribute to 80s Action movies than The Expendables trilogy ever did.
I actually don't understand why everyone keeps saying that they're crap when the original RE movie was actually the best copy cat of Aliens that I ever seen, way better than Paul Anderson's later attempt with Aliens vs Predator, which was only ok.
The Alice character is kinda of an hillarious Mary Sue though, coz instead of Jill bonding with Carlos, it's Carlos bonding with Alice. About the only character who doesn't get sidelined by Alice is Claire Redfield. Claire is also the only RE character who actually survives.
Foe the life of me, I can't understand why everyone hates the RE live action movies so much, when you get such raw action like this. (Funny though, how this is exactly what I said would happen if you tried to invade Umbrella. You'd just kill a bunch of random 9to5 people, and kill nobody important at all.)
That's way better combat than most modern day action movies. What I really liked though is how Extinction, Afterlife, Retribution & Final Chapter all immediately follow the same story.
RE & Apocalypse immediately happened after each other but there was a time skip between Apocalyse & Extinction.
Apocalypse & Extinction were the worst RE movies coz Paul didn't direct them, but they were still good.
Why does Extinction get hated on when it's basically the Dawn of the Dead remake in Vegas.
Afterlife is so far my fave of the RE liveaction series.
Muh girl Mika, she has yakuza tattoos on her ass. (That you of course don't see. You never see her tats in any of her movies or music videos anyway. You could see her ass & tats back in my facebook though, back when I actually felt welcomed there. I got kicked out of practically everywhere on intenr by 2017.)
I don't like the RE CG movies at all, they're fucking boring coz they talk too damn much while standing around doing nothing. The CG movies feel like I'm watching a video game due to how they're segmented between talking scenes, and action scenes, and the dialogue scenes are so boring & overwritten. I'm just basing this off of Degeneration. I haven't seen Vendetta and the other CG film, but it looked to be the same shit, cool action scenes, with 50 minutes of fucking nothing in between.
The live action movies, actually feel like I'm watching a movie, since the story is always moving forward no matter what, and there's always something cool or funny going on in every single scene in the movie.
Don't let Siskel & Ebert hear that though, he gives these movies a half star out of 5, coz it's the worst movies ever.
What I'm getting at, is that the video game fanbase are just wannabes of film critics, but who gives a fuck about film critics? They're just fat ugly losers who don't even make movies to begin with.
It makes no fucking sense to me how Aliens is considered a classic, when the first Resident Evil movie is the same exact shit, but the Big-corporation functioning as a government storyline is much more pronounced in RE than it was in Aliens.
Shit, I don't understand why Paul Anderson is labeled as a bad director.
Event Horizon alone shows that the man is a genius. He just doesn't bother with movies like that any more, coz they barely make any money. I've liked damn near every movie I've seen from him, and his version of Mortal Kombat is way better than that 2021 MK movie that just came out. His MK movie actually felt like a movie. New MK movie was told like a videogame where you get shitty dialogue scenes that go on forever and then a cool fight every once in a while, but the plot never moves, lol.
I see the dumbest critics about the RE movies.
Media studies scholar Stephen Harper said that both Apocalypse and the first Resident Evil film present "highly ambiguous" perspectives on the themes of corporate power, race, gender and sexuality. Describing them both as postmodern and postfeminist texts, Harper argued that, despite containing some progressive elements including feminist themes that undermine patriarchal power, the films also played into several stereotypes. He said the relationship between Alice and Valentine differs from interactions between male characters in action films as seen by a lack of camaraderie and co-operation between the two and, unlike male characters in Apocalypse, both Valentine and Alice are separately shown being "protective and nurturing" of the young Angela; Harper stated even violent action heroines are often portrayed with such characteristics. Harper also criticized how their revealing clothing and camera angles objectified Alice and Valentine throughout the film, and noted that through the African-American character L.J. Apocalypse showed an "ironic awareness" of racist stereotypes, though "it stops short of challenging them and, indeed, often deploys them"
TLDR: "BASICCCALLLLY, IMA MALe FEMINIST, and UHHHH It's Misogyny to imply that women care about children!
Also, this movie is racist! IH AAVE A SCHOLARSHIP IN MEDIA STUDIES, DAT MEANS I'M SMARRT! I WASTED 300k tuition on bullshit that nobody needs!"
Mike Epps had some of the best lines in Apocalypse "GTA MOTHERFUCKEr!" as he's running over zombies, lol.
Hell even the fucking star wars prequels hinted at the construction of the anti-terrorism surveillance state, and how it would eventually label its own citizens as "terrorists", which is exactly what is going on nowadays in that shithole of a "country" where everyone who is even moderately anti-state, or against the mainstream is labelled as a Nazi racist.
Now granted, the American government actually sanctioned the poisoning of blacks
(even fucking wikipedia still states this fact LOL!!!)
The Drug war, Abortion-rights and the banning of gun rights are also anti-black. They were originally started to keep guns away from Black people, and to keep their population numbers low. Although you'd never guess if your only experience with the USA is American tv, when they make Blacks look like they're 20% of the population when that's actually the Hispanics.
What amuses me, is that these acts were all committed by Democrats but it gets blamed on Republicans, when the Republicans are the usesless do-nothing party who never fucking do anything.
Even videogame censorship gets blamed on Republicans when Liberman, Johnson and all those motherfuckers from the 90s & 2000s were all DNC too.
USA is a Unitparty, so them being LOLberal or Cuckservative doesn't matter, but it matters to the Midwits of the USA, and it's funny to me how they'll believe that someone is GOP, even when they have a D before their name, simply coz some 'funny' comedian-man told them what to think.
I really got spoiled as a kid because a lot of entertainment contained all sorts of anti-statist messages, and I just took it for granted until every single piece of western entertainment became a piece of propaganda that you consume to learn how to worship your superiors.
Media used to be anti-statist back when the West used to be a Christfag-Theocracy. Now it's been replaced with a new religion, that they supposedly label as Science, but it's actually the exact opposite of science.
Science is about questioning everything, but modern day Trust the Science people just sound like clergyman who force you to obey the word of God, otherwise you're a heretic.
Even the fucking simpsons became a tool for shilling whatever they were paid to that week lol, I happened to watch a random recent episode and lisa simpson has a whole fucking monologue on how GMOs are actually good for you and a tool of freedom and liberalism to make everyone happy.
The narrative changed, because they want you to love the government, love big pharma, love big corporations.
The final hold out was the military, but since Trump is such a dumbass, the military got taken over under his watch, AYY LMAO!
The plus side, I don't see a tranny army being able to do much dmg. I honestly believe that once the Boomers all die out, people like me will eventually rise coz who's gonna stop me? Millennials? Millennials are fucking retarded, and can't do shit without Boomers. We skip GEN X, coz they're a non-entity and have nearly zero influence.
Late 2010s was when the Millennials took over, and holy shit they're way worse than Boomers. Boomers actually knew how to build & pilot the ship. Millennials just take a shit and then fling it at you.
Everyone hates Boomers, yet they love to imitate Boomer culture. Boomer culture was the 1980s and for the longest time, the DNC Boomers were actually some of the best strategists I've ever seen.
They fucked up with Hillary though, back in 2008, and by the time 2016 rolled around, much of the workforce was replaced by incompetent Millenials lol.
Once the boomers are gone, who's gonna take over? AOC, Ilhan Omar? I don't think so. Yes I can imagine AOC becoming President, but as we can see from Trump & Biden, being president doesn't mean shit. You don't fucking control anything when you're president. The President office is just the most compromised position who only exists to provide corporate kickbacks.
I remember playing Beyond Good & Evil as a kid, not a game I think about that often, but even that had a message on how terrorism & anti-terrorism are two faces of the same coin, financed by the same people in order to enact control over the population. The planet is under attack by "aliens" and the Alpha Sections show up to stop said terrorist attacks, you can even read in-game propaganda papers portraying them as valiant heroes until it is revealed that both sides are actually one and the same, and the Alpha sections are a front for state sanctioned human trafficking.
We had a lot of games like that, because they were allegories about the Bush administration. Look at how all of that saber-rattling disappeared once Obama came into power.
Even though Obama just continued everything that Bush did, and increased the surveillance state.
Huwite people believe that they'll be saved through a Black savior, coz all of the movies they watch tell them so.
Dave Chapelle had a funny bit about that, about how he would just let them all die, lol.
Killer7 went into that as well, but a lot of people are confounded by the final scene. (Most people are confounded by the game in general because they don't understand politics, so they default to thinking it's a game about magic lol.)
The supposed terrorist leader, is revealed as being the bound & gagged servant that allowed for the existance of the Killer7 in the first place. DAMN, WHAT COULD IT POSSIBLY MEAN!?
Hand in Killer7 even outright states that the balance of power where the Heaven Smile would provide terrorism, and the Killer7 would be allowed to destroy them was pre-ordained.
K7 is the odd one out, coz I don't think it's talking about Bush at all. It was always criticsizing how Japan places too much faith in the USA. K7 believes that the USA would just let China nuke Japan of war were to ocurr. I believe this too. Look at what's fucking going on with Taiwan right now. We're selling them out.
Now granted, that didn't happen under Trump, he stood up for Taiwan, but Trump doesn't exist. Americans don't treat him as if he were ever president. To most Americans, Trump is just a Russian puppet, which is hilarious coz it's actually Biden who just recently (a week ago) gave thousands of jobs to Russia while destroying our own industry.
I just can't even deal with this fucking retarded country anymore. I already fucking hated it under Bush & Obama. I hated how Obama always sold out USA's allies and kissed ass to China, but Biden is worse coz in public, he'll shit-talk China, Israel & Russia but then you look at his policies, he's actually giving them jobs, money & Biden just shut down the probe to investigate the Wuhan viral leak. The fuck is this fucking retarded country? I've never seen anything like it. I mean sure I have, from places like Zimbabwe, but the USA is supposedly a 1st world country.
Leon is always portrayed as a faithful aide to the president. However, the president (we have seen two of them for now, Graham and whatever the old man in RE6 was called) is constantly depicted as powerless when facing private organizations.
Seeing how Trump went down, that seems 100% accurate. Like dude, just fucking pardon Assange. Can't coz he was under threat from the GOP who all threatened to impeach him for good if he dared to.
The state is not portrayed as guiltless though, he originally was recruited as an agent through blackmail to ensure the safety of Sherry Birkin.
In RE6, Sherry is working for her freedom to repay the 'debt' of the USA government.
That's why I think it's a fun setting for the series as a whole, there is no "good faction" at all in the RE universe (I forget if Terrasave was ever depicted as being corrupt as well, but I wouldn't be surprised) and each organization is out to line their own pocket. It could potentially go on forever and still be engaging.
RE8 ends with a timeskip where we are shown Ethan's daughter as an adult with mold superpowers (lol there's so many x-men super powered people now, yet they never show up again. Post-RE5 Jill, Sherry, Manuela, now Rose too.) and a lot of people took that as a confirmation that the series will indeed skip forward 20 or so years, but I doubt it will be that drastic.
Even if it did have a timeskip, you'd still see Chris & crew since cloning technology exist in RE. It's actually a huge plot point in the Live action Re movies, and Revelations games actually reference the movies through the Red Queen & the like.
RE6 Ada Wong was basically Crapcom's attempt at trying to give her Alice's plot from the live action movies.
A sad shame that Cap doesn't seem to bother implementing anything more from the movies.
The Sheva & Chris vs Wesker fight scene is actually a rip off of the same exact fight from Afterlife, but its Claire & Chris vs Wesker in the liveaction.
The RE shooter series & the live action movie series made so much damn money. Afterlife alone raked in over 300 million dollars. I don't understand why the fuck Crapcom stopped making them, just to make some shitty looking liveaction RE movie that's supposedly more accurate to the games, even Leon (the whitest guy ever, who evn has an Asian fetish.) is turned into a Mexican guy and Jill Valentine became a Black woman, lol.
LIke nah. I'd rather see Alice again. She was cute, and she's actually a believable fighter.
