And it’s because I bought myself a Gamecube.
I got a pretty decent deal on Ebay. The package included:
• Platinum Gamecube System • 2 Gamecube Controllers (1 indigo, 1 platinum) • Resident Evil • Resident Evil 0 • Resident Evil 4 • Serious Sam • Sonic Mega Collection • Super Smash Bros. Melee • Star Fox Adventures
Yes, this is totally a big RE setup. I’m big into the RE games. I borrowed Winkler’s cube for a week or two about 2 years ago to play the Resident Evil remake (would’ve been maybe my 3rd or 4th time playing the first RE game in some form), so I’ve mainly been hitting up RE0, although the Sonic Mega Collection is great for nostalgia and SSBM is also fun. Since buying it I’ve also picked up the Wind Waker and Metroid Prime.
Listening to Jim tell me about RE4 though…I just couldn’t take it any longer. I had to play it. In the past 2 weeks the GC has gotten more attention than my Xbox has gotten in the past 6 months and I haven’t even tried out RE4 yet.
I want to complete RE0 before I start it. I’m almost done with that one. I’m getting real tired of ink ribbons and things like that, and I’m assured that RE4 is a breath of fresh air. RE0 doesn’t even have any kind of storage unit thingy like in the other games – that’s BS.
So, blame Jim.
