I hear this as a common mantra in the Resident Evil fan community. If I had a dollar for every time I saw that line (or something resembling it) in my time in the Resident Evil fandom, not only would I be able to pay for all of my graduate school application fees—I probably would be able to afford full tuition to a two-year program.
But I must admit, this statement confuses me for a number of reasons:
‘Nezumi… Why won’t you come back to me? Why aren’t you by my side? I want to see that I’m still me, that I’m continuing to be the person I really am—I want to find it in your eyes. That’s the only way I can.
Nezumi—I miss you so much.’ - Shion, No. 6: Beyond
Beautiful, just beautiful…
I can’t help myself but cry….
Don’t get my wrong, I still love Ada Wong. She will forever be my favorite RE female, but I gotta say Capcom doesn’t give two sh*ts about how they handle their characters, anymore. I can understand the need to branch out and make money, but they don’t even care what story writers they hire. Overall, I still like Ada in RE6, but her attitude, models, and voice actress of RE2 and RE4 will forever be my favorites. Well, that would be a given, considering the original writer of RE still had the series back then.
BE WARNED : I’m a bias Ada/Aeon fan. Also, these are my opinions. They’ll likely not match with everyone.
Read MoreTotally agree on most of this – especially on the “Courtenay Taylor” subject. When I watched the interview where she states that she didn’t wanted “to be influenced” by Sally’s work I was appalled because, to me, it sounded not only as a poor excuse but also very much as arrogance.
I totally agree with both of you!!
I LOVE YOU GUYS FOR POINTING THESE OUT!!! <3 <3 <3
