Unfortunately, people are doing exactly that - luring people into shady and vulnerable spots. Shame, really.

Murders, robberies, several things have happened in relation [possibly even because] of Pokemon Go's random positioning of goals. Including but not limited to placing important hubs in dangerous neighbourhoods.

What was your reaction the first time you saw the final form of the Nemesis from RE3, KP?

In a phrase?

"What the transformational ****?!"

Ah, good ol' Resident Evil discussion, the mainstay of RPGT!

The dogs in the first one scared the bejesus out of me.

Holy sh*t, it's a Doc! Hi. :U

Oh hey! It's the site's jolly green giant [Or I presume so. Dylan proved to be a walking communication tower, and CS was a Guyanese Santa Claus sans the excess fat. Knowing my luck I'm actually the shortest person on the site after a certain girl with a penchant for cats :P] ! Great timing! = D

Don't get me wrong though, the dogs were terrifying.

Also terrifying: That BLOODY LICKER IN THE RE2 INTERROGATION ROOM.

And my favourite scare of all in the classic RE games wasn't even a jump-scare, per se. It culminated in one, but the build up was good. Right after getting into the S.T.A.R.S. office and getting your stuff. Once you head back and prepare to head downstairs, you hear a smashed window. Suddenly the melancholy but sort-of-soothing music to this foreboding tune that basically says "Mate, you're about to get splattered all over a wall."

Go down the stairs and Nemesis smashes through a window with a god damned rocket launcher. And because the tune heralded Nemesis suddenly appearing with little warning, it gave me chills for the rest of the game. More than once I used to rush myself during my time in Save Rooms because I expected he could break down the door and get to me. Eventually, at one point in the game, he actually does.

Long time no see, Doc.

KP: After the cutscene where Nemmy makes his intro, did you choose to fight him or enter the police station first time playing the game?

Ran like the chicken I was :P

I've played that game at least 20 times to completion at this point. But even now, I rarely engage him. Early on it's a major bullet drain, and considering I'm not much good with the knife, I typically decide it's not worth the injuries.

And you make fun of me for not wanting to deal with spooks. :P

You just said you still avoid the spook. Point stands. :U

I avoid him because ammo and health. Not because spook. Shush.

It's totally because spook.

After rewatching an RE4 death scenes compilation earlier in the year, I've found the one where Leon gets thrown into the ground by El Gigante if he doesn't get loose to be unintentionally funny.

Howdy guys, and nope, IRL, I am distinctly average height[1]


I had absolutely no idea how to play Resident evil properly. I think I got to the police station in 2, and maybe a bit further, but I was so awful at it. Those were the days of adventure games where it was acceptable to have a random piece of clickable background in some random corridor, that you needed to find, without any hints, to progress.

Simon the Sorcerer you piece of ****.

I'll go ahead and just claim the title of "Shortest Person on the Site", then, shall I? Where's my crown? :P

Getting one made for you, actually. The person I commissioned for it said there was a limit to the size of it, so I'm worried it might be a bit too big. Will this do? Or should I look for someone with a wider selection of sizes?

Also, wow, Doc. Looks like you've been busy. Skydiving?

Are you kidding? Stick windows and a bottom on that thing and fill it with water, and I could use it as a swimming pool.

I'll go speak to my grandfather. He's a microscopy nut, maybe he can figure out something that'll fit. I hear queen bees have actual teeny tiny crowns if you look closely enough :P
