So, as part of my effort to play things that I should have played, games that are important to forming my body of knowledge about the history of my favorite activity, I’ve purchased RE: Code: Veronica X (that’s a lot of colons) and both of The Longest Journey games. I’ve actually just completed the original TLJ, and I thought it was pretty good. I like the second one so far, for its amazingly detailed conversations (which most people thought were too much?), and its great writing. Also, is it just me or does it look amazing or an original Xbox game ported to PC? I have it set on “Ultra” graphics settings, because of my badass, 256 MB+ video card. Shit.
As for Code: Veronica, I’m not really sure why I purchased it. Sure it was only $5, but It’s not as if I love Wesker or anything. It might be that I actually enjoyed some of their games, and their newest offering has disgusted me. I guess I’m hoping that even pre-RE 4 and post Zero, Remake, and RE 2, this series can do it for me. Wish me luck!
