What Resident Evil 4 has to fear
Since Saturday night I've had this copy of Resident Evil 4 sitting here, ready to go into ye olde PlayStation 2. I haven't even cracked the shrinkwrap. Why? Simply put, I'm still totally hooked on Pool of Radiance, the D&D RPG from 1988.

Believe it or not, I've chosen this:over this:
I promise I'll get to RE4 before the weekend, but it's just so blasted easy to drop into Pool of Radiance for half an hour of exploration.

RE4 is so good. I recall exactly the layout of the level depicted in that screenshot.

How disappointed you will be when you have ripped the wrapping, played a few hours and in the end will still go back to Pool of Radiance.

Aulbath, I actually saw that post on ToaSE the other day and avoided it because I was worried it'd be spoilerific. Ask me if I remembered to go back and read it when I'm done with RE4.

Will do, will do.

Text sure is spoilerrific (which is no real trouble though, as the story and it's twists in RE4 make no real sense whatsoever), but I find it to be an awesome text, because I wrote something VERY similar last November in some german board, and got heaviley flamed for it (which is okay for me, cause people = shit).
But anyway, this game has some drawbacks and flaws, and yet everybody loves it in a way that it doesn't deserve.

But it's great to know that there exist people that don't think of RE4 as the best thing happening to mankind since sliced bread.
Anyway, I will get back to you when you report on the completion of RE4.
