Introduction



What's all this about?
Last summer we knocked out Resident Evil 4 and for some reason we've decided to continue the tradition. We'll be playing through every major Umbrella-themed (pre-RE4) Resident Evil game in order. This means 1 through 3 as well as Code: Veronica X on the PS2. We won't be playing Zero because it sucks.

What can I expect from this LP?
Expect a whole bunch of bumblin' around. We're vaguely familiar with the series but it's been a while for all of us. I've got a pretty good memory of RE2. As you probably already know, this is not an informational LP so don't be expecting one. If anything, this LP exists to allow everyone to kick back and enjoy the beginnings (and middle) of a classic series. You probably already know what to expect; it's going to be painful, but in a good way.

As with some of our previous projects, feel free to make cruel recommendations on specific ways for us to play upcoming segments of the games. Also, please use spoilers when discussing upcoming stuff. There are some people out there (like Ross) who haven't seen these older RE games.

What's the update schedule?
We'll be posting episodes on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We record 2 weeks (6 videos) at a time and will always let you know the day/week of a recording so you can make suggestions beforehand if you so desire.

Resident Evil (titled "Biohazard" in Japan) was released on the Playstation in 1996 and was directed by the now-heralded Shinji Mikami. It was one of the very first games to establish the phrase "survival horror." Known for its sluggish controls and bad voice acting, the classic game has now sold over 2.7 million copies. It established the concepts and characters that would stick around all the way to the recent Resident Evil 5, such as Chris Redfield, Albert Wesker and the T-Virus. We'll be playing the Director's Cut version of the game.

Two years after the first game, Resident Evil 2 was released in 1998. The game's first version (dubbed "Resident Evil 1.5") was totally scrapped and the game was rebuilt to feature more varied environments and to be more cinematic. The story revolves around Claire Redfield (sister to Chris from RE1) and rookie Raccoon City cop Leon Kennedy. RE2 sold nearly five million copies and later another 800,000 more with the release of the Dual Shock Edition. We'll be playing both the Claire A and Leon B modes.

Resident Evil 3 was released in 1999 and featured the subtitle "Nemesis" (though apparently the Japanese version used the subtitle "Last Escape"). The game focuses on Jill Valentine's escape from Raccoon City. It apparently takes place both a day before RE2 and a day after it. The game is known for Nemesis, a Mr. X-like monster that chases Jill throughout the entire game. It sold well and featured various improvements to the series, such as a quick turn, running up and down stairs without pushing X, a dodge move and more. We'll be playing through the game on Hard.

Resident Evil: Code Veronica X is officially the fourth main story game in the RE series, despite not actually being RE4. It was released in 2000 on the Dreamcast while later in 2001, the X version was released. The X version is also now available in HD on Xbox Live and PSN. The game follows Claire Redfield's continued search for Chris while also giving some backstory to Umbrella and, specifically, the Ashford family. The game sold around 3 million copies. We'll be playing the X version, which includes slightly tweaked graphics and some extra cutscenes.
