Thanks for the site and the laughs Ryan, I sincerely hope you knew how much your work meant to so many.

You will not be forgotten.

There is a parrot on the topside of the island to the left of the area where the man lives. Grab the box of crackers near the boat and use them to get the parrot to sit on your shoulder. Drop the bone near the dog and the parrot will mimic the dog's bark. Walk back to the boat with the parrot and the man will run off to fetch his dog.

Hope this helps.

I want to high five Patrick for his excellent taste in Resident Evil games.

Don't think I can muster any hype for this announcement, despite my love for the series. Capcom doesn't seem to have fucking clue what do with their franchises lately. Can't wait for this game to be announced as a daylight action romp, outsourced to some second tier western studio.

I agree wholeheartedly, the encounter design in this game was awful, and that really says something in a series not exactly known for balanced combat scenarios.

The sheer frustration of dying for the 20th time in an encounter where you are being shotgunned, sniped, being pinged by grenades thrown with the frequency and accuracy of pitching machine, and engaged in fisticuffs all at once from all directions was almost too much for me. Playing only on normal I felt like I got through most of the later combat sections purely by a combination of luck and rote memorisation.

Such a shame, nearly everything else about this game is stellar. It's beautiful, the set-pieces are as good as ever and the acting and characterisation are the absolute best in the series, even the puzzles are improved. The first half balanced the story, exploration and combat elements so perfectly I really thought they finally had the formula down-pat, then the last half degenerates into one frustrating combat encounter after another, and another.

Despite this, I still really enjoyed the overall experience of Uncharted 3, I just would have enjoyed it a lot more if I didn't have to murder the population of a small countries worth of overly aggressive mercenaries.

Maybe just a large cities worth next time Naughty Dog?

@ChrisInCali: Haha very apt.

On the plus side, this would make the 3DS more comfortable to hold for those of us with giant hands (i.e me).

You mentioned you have it already but Vampire - Bloodlines is seriously good.

I'd also suggest Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind.

Great article!

Really cool of you to give this game more attention, seems it slipped under a lot of peoples radars, such a shame it didn't sell.

"[We have seen] a clear reduction in piracy of our titles which required a persistent online connection, and from that point of view the requirement is a success,"

I wonder if they are seeing increased sales as a result? If not, is it really worth alienating legitimate consumers?

@Taiyo: I agree, the remake is much more difficult though.

Also the re-done soundtrack in this dualshock version is vastly inferior to the original, you're really missing out on a core part of what makes resident evil so special.
