@Zila HP's played a huge role in my life for a while. Even now, whenever I'm in doubt, I keep asking myself "What would 17yr old Voldemort do?". However, I felt like in Harry Potter, if ANYONE was brave, it was Ron Weasely. Harry survived the Killing Curse, and had a bunch of powers for himself since he was a baby. Hermione had superior intellect compared to any wizard out there. Ron didn't have anything, and when you're someone like him, it takes guts to stick with Harry till the very end, knowing full well that you've got neither intellect nor luck to save you in the brink of death. Severus Snape was brave too, but the story does a pretty good job depicting that.
I haven't followed the RE lore all that well, but I do agree with what you said about Lord D and Donna (who I think is *beautiful*). Doll girl honestly made me feel like I was back in the Baker's, that boss was the most interesting one imo. And yes, vampire lady had more....assets than the memes gave her credit for. She felt like the woman who'd say "Silence!" when the rest of the group got too loud. And throughout the entire time I was playing against Moreau, I just wanted to give that man a hug and tell him "Bro, want some tea? Someone to talk to, maybe? A therapist?". I'm not a very emotional person myself, but this dude . And Heisenberg....well, he had part of all of the other three. Power like vampire lady, that essence of unpredictability like Donna, but still driven by insecurity like Moreau.
My favourite character was the Duke. Coz this man played fair. Ethan, I kind of knew he'dSpoiler
sacrifice himself for his daughter, he does seem the type. What stood out about him was his god damned pain tolerance. This dude can drive a truck with a broken leg, put his hand back together right after being sliced off, fix his entire body with just a bottle of first aid. SHEESH.
Good things about RE Village was the phenomenal design and graphics work. BEAUTIFUL stuff. And now that you remind of Lord D's....assets, I think I'll lift the game up to a 6.5/10. Hey, I'm not being irrational . Also, forgive me for having a crush on one of her daughters...I swear I'm not into monsters...or bees.
Thanks for reading through my paragraphs all the time, you're allowing me to geek out
@TobiGotGrenades Wow, really? The HP universe has had a great deal of impact on me as well. Always great to run into another fan! I mostly meet others at HP cons, if not looking for HP content online specifically. It's like we're a secret society or something.
Yeah, Ron was a great trooper and stuck it out most of the time. Even when he made mistakes, he always came back to apologize. Although I feel like Ron was exploited the most as an example to express natural human flaw. I ended up really liking the Weasley family altogether. Neville Longbottom was a good pivotal character too. He was never quite exclusively reinforced by the trio in the sense that no one really had his back. Making him a more vulnerable character but he had a genuine backbone and aided the main cast in significant ways. Even if it was still from a sideline perspective. My dude openly called Voldemort out when everyone else was afraid to.
RE 7 was such a good game, it would be difficult to have followed up in that regard. There's a lot of elements I truly like about Village. It's just a shame that it's easy get through as a game, and certain portions of it start to pale after the enthusiasm of the first playthrough wears down. Lore, environmental, and visual designs are amazing. You're right, I felt so bad for Moreau! Miranda's biggest chill factor was how easily she created victims and then had them call her mother, forcing them to be family , yikes! Ah, the Duke is probably my favorite merchant in gaming to date! Love his character and the absolute mystery surrounding him. The floor of his wagon has a society/family crest on it. I always wondered if it's a connection to some kind of league of merchants or something, haha.
(Rubs hands together like a villain) good, good. The power of Lady D is inevitable. Mwahaha! Honestly, I'm not even upset that the Internet put her so high up on the simp charts. She turned out to be a fantastic character in the end.
I think it's funny that Ethan was like, in IT or an engineer of some kind and got mixed up in everything. Just an average dude, trying his best. The fact that he kept his humanity when other characters seemed desensitized to it, was refreshing too.
"I swear I'm not into monsters...or bees."
There's no kink shaming here! Rol
No probs on the paragraphs, I do love me some passionate discussions on interests.
@Zila Neville's built different. I think that's why he had trouble with broomsticks in the first book. It must be really hard for a broomstick to carry someone with balls this big. I'll be honest, Voldemort had a HUGE role to play in the way I see the world. 17 yr old Voldemort was brilliant. He'd never denied himself a opportunity to fulfill his dream about being the strongest wizard in the world, and was extremely smart with whatever he'd tried to handle. However, that all changed when he saw the prophecy, and we instantly see a version of Riddle that's more...stubborn. Stubborn to the point where he's so hell bent on killing Harry Potter that he loses track of his original aim; being the best in the world, letting things like "i want to kill harry myself" come in his way. The noseless Voldemort is a man that's tunnel visioning in the wrong direction, a man so driven by a desire to prove his worth to a lucky 17yr old that he loses himself. This understanding of him made me notice how I was the same way, and after I'd decided to not get lost, my life's been better.
And about RE Village, you're right about everything except one part.
There's only ONE villain in that game that can force me into calling her mommy, and it's not Miranda. No amount of medieval witchcraft can change the way I feel about those....assets
