Resident Evil Degeneration


Oh my god! My middle son, Big Mart, has just squealed like a girl from his bedroom! When I went to investigate the cause of said squeal, it seems that Marty's favourite EVER gaming character, Leon. S. Kennedy is back!

Now at this point, I have to say that within my house, Marty is my gaming and Resident Evil soulmate. We've enjoyed the franchise together. He's played the games with me, sometimes completing the harder parts that made me cry like a baby.

Now about 'Leon S' (that's how Marty always referred to him.) When I was playing RE4 Wii Edition downstairs, Marty was playing RE4: PS2 upstairs in his bedroom. Giving me status reports on his progress and posing thought provoking questions like... "Who do you reckon would win in a fight Dad? Leon S. or Ryo Hazuki?" or "Do you reckon Ada Wong could take Jill Valentine?"

I got a bit worried at one point that Marty was a bit gay for Leon S. but I know he just loves the character in a healthy way... *(disclaimer - Father K is not homophobic and feels for consenting same sex couples, homosexuality is as healthy as heterosexuality)- Just not for his sons... *Cough!* LOL!

Anyway, back to the point of the post... I just read this...

SYNOPSIS

The "Umbrella Incident" that took place in Raccoon City ended with a missile attack ordered by the government intended to wipe out the deadly zombie virus. Following this catastrophe, the Umbrella Corporation's stock plummeted. This serious blow to the business giant resulted in its complete dissolution. 7 years later, at an airport somewhere in the United States, on an ordinary autumn afternoon, a zombie is unleashed. Now, in an airport beginning to fill with the undead, the horrific disaster is about to repeat itself..."

PHEW! What about that then?
