I Kill Zombie Infected Villagers

Since the weekend I have dedicated myself to a new purpose in life: to finish Resident Evil 4. You know, it’s a personal matter. If I got this in Metal Gear, a game in which humans must be eliminated, why couldn’t I eliminate zombie villagers infected with Las Plagas? It should be a lot easier.

Resident Evil is very well done. The soundtrack, ambiance, graphics, gameplay and how the camera positions itself in the scenarios contribute to making the experience richer. The only problem is the emo hair of the protagonist of the game, Leon Scott Kennedy, a guy with great chances of dying, thanks to his famous kinship.

I believe that the game takes place in Spain, because the back of the game box says that the events take place in Europe and the zombie villagers infected with Las Plagas speak Spanish. I confess that it was quite strange to be following dialogues in English and, suddenly, to hear shouts like ¡Es el forastero!, ¡Mátenlo! and ¡Te voy a hacer picadillo!.

A big problem I’ve always faced in the other versions of Resident Evil I’ve played is the ammo. This one’s no different. It has to be saved as there are not enough bullets to kill all the zombie villagers infected with Las Plagas. Depending on where you hit, it takes up to 6 bullets to kill a cheap zombie villager infected with Las Plagas! To work around this problem, I developed a special technique. I keep a distance from my target, long enough for him to see me and start getting closer. If he comes running, I expect him to stay 10 or 10 feet away. Right now, I shoot you in the knees. It only takes one or two shots for him to fall. Then I approach and I kill him. If he comes walking, I walk away and I hope he runs after me to perform the maneuver described above.

Of course this method only works when they appear from 1 in 1 or at most 2 in 2. When the thing thickens and several appear at once, the solution is to take my 12 caliber and blow their heads off. I’ve already managed to kill 3 zombie villagers infected with Las Plagas with only 1 shot. Generally firing 2 or 3 to end up with n-1 zombie villagers infected with Las Plagas in a group of n zombie villagers infected with Las Plagas, where n≤5.

And Resident Evil rekindled in me the taste for terror, let’s say, more gore. In addition to the Coffin Joe movies I’m downloading, I found a pearl in the e-mule: Cannibal Holocaust. Draw the synopsis of the film:

Classic of Italian-Colombian terror/splatter filmed in 1979 in the Amazon jungle, about cannibal Indians, depraved European tourists and the brutal border army in Colombia.

A movie like this can’t be bad. The trailer proves:
