Whoever did the menus for Resi 5...

...needs to be fired. Asap. It's bizarre to have such a through-and-through polished and next gen experience tarnished by this bumbling infantile 1998 bullshit. Not even just the inventory, the menus between missions where you manage and buy/sell stuff, it's all apocalyptically bad, and it's especially obvious in co-op, where they shift and move around like crazy as two players try to use them properly. Too many "Are you sure?" prompts, button legends that don't match the context you're in, HIDDEN buttons they don't tell you about in-game, it's just plain BAD. My dad's homemade website makes more sense than these things.

The aiming is fine, and it looks cool. Whatever if i can't strafe while i do this. What bothers me is when i can't pick something up without DESTROYING (?!) a single round of pistol ammo that's taking up a slot, or that i can't, when requested by my partner to trade over some ammo, simply push a button to do so without having to go into the menus.

Arggh i wish they could just patch this fixed, because i'm having so much fun with the game otherwise!
