“I really don’t like what they did with Wesker’s character in resident evil 5. I feel like everything past the point of Spencer’s death was completely uncharacteristic of him and they essentially just made him into a cliche` video game villain at that point. If they would’ve left out his use of Uroboros and his Death and changed the ending it would’ve been better. Not to mention even his death was very anticlimactic. I think it would’ve been better that after Spencer told him of his past and that he was not much more than a dog to Umbrella than he would’ve sided with Chris to take down Tricell and the BOW’s with him. He could’ve had redemption for everything he did. He could’ve had more character depth than “oh I’m going to take over the world now.” They pretty much made him into videogame Hitler.”
*cough* Am kind of working on a story where he does just that only with *Claire* not Chris (too much bad blood for that to be plausible imo)…
“Am I the only one who really wants to see RE 3.5 finished?”
Oh snap! You and me both! Honestly it felt more like RE than 5+6 and yet it was dumped because it wasn’t considered RE enough…say wha? o.o
Anonymous said: Not a confession, but I don't understand why they /have/ to sexual a character, male or female. People won't buy a game just for that!! I'm a straight female and I cringe when I see the ridiculous outfits Chris wears. I think being conservative is more attractive, honestly.
finally, someone else who agrees with me
i did see someone who added on to one of the asks the other days saying that most of the sexualized costumes - for females mostly - is because the gaming industry still believe it’s highly dominated by males.
i think the sexualized male costumes is their way of making up for the fact they forgot about females who game.
still, there’s honestly no need for it. it add nothing to the game.
i mean, i love deadrising because of the silly things you can wear - and yes i love putting frank in a dress - but it doesn’t sexualize him at all. it’s silly and stays that way.
“Can I just say that anyone who takes the time to writes fanfiction in this fandom deserves a gold star. You are all fanrastic people with great minds and no matter what you should keep it up! This fandon would be nothing without you!”
