    Wow dude - that is awesome. Those are some memories right there. Pretty organized approach for a small kid...you don't have OCD as an adult by chance, do you?

    We don't talk about Episode 10... Its funny, we now have like 2~3 episodes that were scrapped. Maybe I'll put them out eventually as sorta B-sides to the podcast.

    Aha, I think I was like 10 at the time that was created, and then later on I added the MK Trilogy crap to it. This was before I found the internet or had a PC. I have some traits of OCD, but nothing like Alzaire, who has the unfortunate need to get all S ranks in every difficulty just so they can all say S at the bottom of his screen.

    Gonna give this a listen through in a few hours to make sure I didn't miss any vital edits or forgot about some stuff I said I'd post in the topic.

    Wow... I used to do the exact same thing when I was young. A few years back I was clearing boxes and other furnature in my parents garage and found a draw filled with files, notes, maps, and cheats for various games from the late 80's through till about 1996... pre-internet. I think I just transferred that sort of thing across to computer when I got one in 1996. I actually ended up using some of the notes I found to make a guide for Alien 3 on the Genesis/Mega Drive which is up on GameFAQ's.

    I had passcodes and cheats for just about everygame I ever played in those files. I do think it is a kinda OCD thing, which thankfully I've slowly gotten myself off from doing. But it was definently even a part of my earlier work on Resident Evil sites.

    Ahah, good to know I'm not alone

    I didn't even scan the whole thing in. I basically listed like 28 pages of moves for MK games there XD

    Edit: Carn, is this Seņor Pantalones whom was mentioned in the bloopers?

    Rombie, Dot - I hear you on that. I miss the good ol' days - when you had to find out game cheats/codes/strategies from magazines or from friends. Where you'd furiously scrawl a fatality move onto a piece of paper so you could have it handy during gameplay. Those were the days...simpler times...better times...

    Good podcast but I'm suprised that you guys mentioned mainly only the cons of RE 5 and not the pros.

    Yeah those were the days, I remember in Mortal Kombat 2 I always selected Johnny Cage because I knew his fatality and because he wore sunglasses.

    the cheat book looks so good, you should publish it dot

    Carn and his one liners stole the show.

    also, kinda bummed that you guys didn't talk about the technical side of RE5, you know, graphics, voice acting and music, especially music since that was a high point in the game ..

    Climb the beanstalk and defeat Smithy
    ZOMG I've been dodging spoilers for 13 years!!!!! Now the whole game is ruined! I know how to kill the boss!

    Just as a follow up to the show. I FINALLY got my e-capcom Biohazard 5 in today. The idiots under-insured the package. So I don't know what the plan would have been if it was damaged or lost. Definately don't use celga.com to import things.

    Me and Randomwab were too busy enjoying ourselves some co-op action to speak up while they were hard at work slandering the game
    (Though, I think we did join the bad mouthing at some point.)

    Same pre-podcast recording, everyone were doing co-op stuff


    But, yeah, I guess it might've come off as a bit bad in the podcast there. Take some of it with a bit of perspectiveness, I guess...

    The files that're present "in game" mainly just focus on relevant story information. The files you can only access outside the game are those that are either the loading screen text (this is the 44 page one, by the way), or they are character ones that either sum up random stuff about the character that I really don't think could fit into the game's narrative too well, or stuff that just explains a lot of stuff that really wouldn't have been necessary to put into the game in the first place, and is more of a "report" on the subject, as if the file was written by someone post-RE5.


    What would've been really neat, though, would be if RE5 had been playable in two ways. One being a more expanded single player story mode and then there being the co-op mode (which would more or less be how the game we've currently got is). It wouldn't have been a first for a game to do this, but it's not always as much about coming up with new ideas as it is making sure stuff just works.

    I still think it's a bit sad that what you see in the trailers for the game is pretty much all there is to each and every character, though (Besides Josh).

    Anyway, although the story is pretty cheesy (as expected from an RE game, but there were a few things that were just too "over the top stupid"), the game itself is nearly rock solid and has a fantastic multiplayer component and what I would honestly call a rather good replay value thanks to how you can replay your favorite parts pretty much instantly.

    I think we just kinda went on a roll with discussions of things that had gone wrong for us because you kinda already know whats good about it because it's the a lot of the same things that people everywhere like. Once we got so far in and the length got so long, Dot was really trying to wrap us up and yet we managed to bring up other enemies and issues and features... as I said in my first post in here hidden on page 1 though...

    Much like any title in the series it has it's moments you wont forget, and yet at the same time it's kinda also made me have a new appreciation for some of the things in 4 that weren't transferred across too (much like I did for stuff that didn't come to Code Veronica from RE2 and 3).

    Dot I encourage you to do the Broskis bit more often. It's hilarious.

    Aww, more non-stop hate on Umbrella Chronicles? Words hurt, man, words hurt!

    Aside from the UC/DC hate (which I was able to handle, no worries, heh), good episode nonetheless, good to see the Dispatch back, great stuff guys!

    I just finished listening to this episode. Great job as always, very funny and much I agree with. The pros and cons you mentioned about RE5 I definitely agree with.

    So are the other episodes of RPD dispatch no longer being hosted on this site?

    Or was this the only one that was ever put out? I was reading the posts on #10 and people kept saying it was never put out.

    I am confused, and I kind of want to hear the other podcasts.

    Help a noob out?
