Hey there folks, here comes one of my most played games in the worldiverse! Resi 4 is an action horror game (just like the other resis), but with less focus on puzzles and more on the enemies. There are still some scares and the atmosphere is still based on horror, but there are also parts that are just focused on shooting your way through.

Resi 4 was made by Capcom and is probably their best game to date in my very own opinion. Very addictive, lots of weapon upgrading, quite a few secrets scattered about...I should be able to show you most of these secrets, but I may forget one or two.

This is going to be played on the PS3 version, although you can play it on the following platforms: Gamecube, PS2, Wii, PC, mobile phones, 360 and PS3. I've heard quite a few bad things about the PC and mobile versions so...try to go for the other options if possible.

Anyways, here's the opening video for this one:

I might as well also share my quality testing video here too...I think it's ok. It's probably the best I can get out of the hardware I can afford at the moment. There are a few spoilers for the start of the main series, so don't watch if you don't want to see those:

http://youtu.be/YFlD0fRm26w


And also, I'll chuck a link to a resi wiki that will give some more info on the series:

http://residentevil.wikia.com/Resident_Evil_4

See you when my new mic comes, which should be in a day or 2 I hope ;)

EDIT: Separate Ways starts over at post 40 on page 4:

Episode 1 - Time For A Wazz!

http://youtu.be/m5sT7yuy3VA


Hey there folks, welcome to the first episode of resi 4! This is sort of a prologue episode, with the opening cinematics and the journey to the village. What was that car crash noise all about? Why are these freaks attacking us? How do they still have half a brain? Why did we save that dog?

See you all next time ;)

I have played this game through seven or eight times, so I will give this LP a go. I know why you saved the dog of course :ohoho:
Woo, thanks! I gave the dog the name from an entirely different game in the episode :$ . Called him Hewie/Lewie from Haunting Ground. Oh wells :D
Gimme a shout if I miss anything, 'cause I'm sure I will do here and there :)

black_eclipse and Hayley Williams
Thanks for watching both! I couldn't just leave that dog behind :sad3:

-------------------------------------------------------------------

Episode 2 - The Village People

http://youtu.be/T5aYdYxW5QA


Hello people, it's time to see what the village is like! The villagers are friendly souls, who want nothing but to shovel shit and play bingo. That and burn the police alive.
We don't attract the attention of the chainsaw guy, but there are other problems around. We also get our first shotgun.

Thanks for watching! :)

Episode 3 - Home On The Range

http://youtu.be/1r06IbGTxQw


Hello peoples, it's time to make our way through the farm! It's pretty laid back compared with the village, but when there's bingo going on, you can't expect everyone to come after you, can you? Priorities people! Priorities!

Also, we start the blue medal sidequest...we miss one of them, but maybe we can get it later :) . Finally, we see our favourite dog/wolf having a run around. Who knows why we get to see him here though ha.

See you for the next episode :)

2 episodes today to show all of chapter 1-2!

---------------------------------------------

Episode 4 - Welcome, Stranger!

http://youtu.be/JL8mRrmM7ug


Hello peoples, it's time to see how Luis and Leon got on with the Cheif! We also meet a new character, which adds a bit of depth to the game. Finally, we make our way across some rope bridges, finding 2 keys as we go to escape this madness.
Oh...we also die for the first time. Not good :(

Come back anytime...

--------------------------------------------

Episode 5 - Same Blood

http://youtu.be/ug1f2uXR44k


Hello peoples, this one's only short, but it takes us to the end of chapter 1-2! We take down a bunch of dynamite stick nuts and find our way to a house...which unfortunately holds the great Chief Mendez. We also take on a simple puzzle at the door to the house...which means making the insignia on a funny orb thing.
Oh, nearly forgot to mention that we find a mask that needs gems inserted too. We'll get around to that as we go ;)

See you again :)

--------------------------------------------------

EDIT: I apologise for this folks. I never thought I'd be stupid enough to skip an episode, but here we are! Episode 6 will be put by right here once it's finished uploading (which will be in about an hours time). Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused :(

Here's the episode 6 I promised. Hope it hasn't ruined anything :(

Episode 6 - Graves For Twins

http://youtu.be/8GL5BckEGyc


Hey there folks, I apologise for the lateness of this episode...I skipped this one entirely, even though it was all rendered and ready to be uploaded a while back.

Anyways, we head back through the village and head to the cemetery, where we find some twin graves, a gem, some more blue madallions and a rather strange looking church...

See you again folks :)

I've seen my dad play this game at least 20 times. It's definitley my favorite Resident Evil, and one of my favorite games ever. Brings back good memories! :)

My dad was the type that had to do everything possible in the games he played, including this one. He's so crazy, he even considered going for the shortest time ever to finish Resident Evil 4 world record!

Nowadays I watch him play on Xbox 360. It's just as good as before.

Ah nice. Even I haven't played it that much...not far off, but not that much ha. How did he do with that world record? Get close?
It's definitely one of my favourite games too. The only resi I really like with this style.

Ah 16 hours seems like a pretty good time. I can't remember my fastest :(
I didn't much like Resi 3. It's not bad...but I felt that it was a bit weaker than the others in terms of map layout etc. That's just me though :)

Another 2 episodes today! I was especially bored so...here ya go :D

------------------------------------------

Episode 7 - Trouble At The Marsh


http://youtu.be/BQtrm_fymCE


Hello peoples, this episode has us make the first leg of the journey towards the church key. We find another gem for the beerstein, have a little trouble with a boulder, and have a royal shoot out at the marsh.
One question: what's with those noises coming from behind that gate? 0_0

See you next time ;)

P.S. A different method of rendering was used this time to try it out. I don't think it worked out, so back to normal for the next one :)

------------------------------------------

Episode 8 - The Monster In The Lake


http://youtu.be/CCFVCrrUMOI


Hey there folks, this episode is all about the lake. I show an optional cutscene to do with the other policeman that brought us here, we grab a treasure from a nest, I show an optional death next to the lake and we take on the monster itself. It's such a fun boss :)
Oh, we also get to head back across the lake to a sorta hidden merchant, where we get another gem stone.

See you when we start chapter 2 properly :)

And another 2 episodes! You'd think this were becoming a regular thing... :/

--------------------------------------------------

Episode 9 - The Giant's Rampage

http://youtu.be/PTXmFkxdoPg


Hey there folks, this episode has the dam (which is one of my favourite parts of the game for some reason) where we collect the round insignia for the church, as well as a fight against our second boss...El Gigante incoming!

Enjoy :)

--------------------------------------------------

Episode 10 - Introducing The President's Daughter

http://youtu.be/ZdV3rKlMsx8


And hello again! This episode has us head back to the church and complete it all. Within, we meet a new character...and also have a nice chat with the owner of the whole religion etc.

Unfortunately, I forget to head back into the church to kill an enemy that would drop 5000 ptas. Or there about. I could have done it in the next episode but...I forget in that one too. Just a heads up if you're using this as a walkthrough ;)

See you again, when we make our way back to the village...with some new mechanics being shown off :)

EDIT: A new enemy and the colour mixing/glass window puzzle are also shown.

---------------------------------------------------

EDIT EDIT: Episode 6 has now been added up in the post that includes episodes 4 and 5. Sorry about any inconvenience :(

Only 1 episode this time. Busy times.

----------------------------------

Episode 11 - The Red Door

http://youtu.be/crFIoQagv-c


Hello peoples, this episode has us protect Ashley through the cemetery, village and the farm. Not the easiest part of the game...things are starting to get tough 0_0

See you later when we make it to the cabin...

Episode 12 - Cabin Sandwich

http://youtu.be/JDUWxsX1cdQ


Hey peoples, what we have here is an episode based entirely on the cabin shoot-out! I get to show you an optional death scenario, which is pretty grand, and we make it through to the end :)

Enjoy :)

2 more episodes to finish up the village folks!

--------------------------------------------

Episode 13 - Path A Or Path B?


http://youtu.be/ypkfA7SRAhI


Hello peoples! This episode gives us a choice. Should we take on the Bella Sisters, or the El Gigante? I've picked already, naturally, but I think I made the best choice. I still did shite, but I have gone for the easier option imo. We also make it out the other side and go along the skiing...machines (whatever the hell they're doing in the village). Finally, we take an optional detour and get another gem for our treasures. We make it to the last merchant of the village...

See you in the next episode when we finish off the village!

-------------------------------------------

Episode 14 - The Big Cheese


http://youtu.be/sTexF1u8kL4


Hello folks of Youtube, this is the last episode in the village, which has the boss of the village: Chief Mendez. He's normally quite tough for me...will he be hard this time?
We also get out of the village and make it to the 2nd area...but that's for another day.

See you then ;)

Episode 15 - Storm The Castle!

http://youtu.be/sGVEBhet2Y4


Hello peoples! Here comes chapter 3, which is full of castle goodness! We start off by being welcomed by the ever amazing merchant, which has plenty of new stuff available for us. We then head around the first part of the castle, which is full of flaming catapults. What a nice welcome...

----------------------------------------------

Episode 16 - Little Ol' Salazar

http://youtu.be/s3lrAuZI3BU


Hello again people, this has some more of chapter 3-1. We complete the sword-swapping "puzzle", meet Luis Sera again (and get a wee bit disappointed), find the entrance key, meet the castellan of the castle (my favourite resi villain!) and take down the Prisoner, who is a mini-boss of sorts.

See you again :)

Episode 17 - Ashley's Cranking Mission

http://youtu.be/kHMkSWUT54Y


Ok folks, this episode has my least favourite room in the entire game, because it's huuuuge. It's split into 2 parts, and if you die anywhere along the way, then you start all over from the beginning. Still, we get through it and find that there's a little bit left of the rest of the chapter.
See you there! :)

P.S. Sorry about the weird voice in this one :/

-------------------------------------------

Episode 18 - Firing Range

http://youtu.be/h1xclcCxkrw


This episode has a the start of a minigame that will carry on throughout a lot of the game. You shoot at a firing range for points and get money and collectable bottlecaps at the end. This can be done 4 times throughout the game and will give more money each time you play. The minigames are found behind the blue doors shown in the episode.
Other than this, we do a bit of shopping and reach the end of the chapter (with a bit of a shock to end with :eek: ).

See you for chapter 3-2! :)
