Need A “RE”fresher? New Trailer Recaps Plot Leading Up To Resident Evil 3
Aight, I got this one. There’s a bad company that makes zombies and the good guys have to shoot them. This takes an ever-increasing amount of bullets as the series goes on. At first it was just like some bullets. Then it was a LOT of bullets. Then it was a rocket. Then it was several rockets. Then it was blowing the whole base up. In Resident Evil 5, you blow up a monster the size of the forest with a satellite laser. And then you drop Sephiroth into a volcano. How did I do?
Honestly, the plot of Resident Evil isn’t why any of us are here. It’s the kind of shit that serves to put people in the paths of zombies. Then when the zombies get boring, it comes up with reasons to throw giant evil toads and flesh monsters at you. It’s fine. It works. And apparently, as shown in the video above, it can be recapped in just five minutes. Or at least the “Racoon City Incident,” which encompasses 0-2.
So if you’re new to the series and just dying to know how zombies and mutants dare coexist, go ahead and give it a watch. It’s not really in-depth, so it won’t offer any new insights to dedicated fans. And before you flip your shit and DM me that I know NOTHING of the narrative complexity of the Resident Evil franchise, I read the books. I say it’s dumb out of love, not hate. It’s a big dumb zombie game and I want Capcom to never stop making them.
Resident Evil 3 launches on April 4th for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. A playable demo is available tomorrow. If you want to pre-order for PC, you can click here for the game’s Steam store page.
