Parasite Eve II Part Three: Vaccine

The shortcut that leads you back to Douglas’ trailer is on the right side of the Water Hole. On the side of the Underpass is a passage to another part of Dryfield where you can do more grinding, if you want. The enemies there are pretty weak, though.

Parasite Eve II Part Two: Epidemic

Aya infiltrated the lab hidden in the mines. I’d like to get my hands on whoever put these automated security systems in there. I also hate these amoeba-looking things. They’re immune to guns, but not to magic. Unfortunately, they can Silence you. Continue reading Parasite Eve II Part Two: Epidemic

VGJ Miscellany: Activision Classics – Retro Sports Pennant


Activision Classics

Released: September 30, 1998

Publisher: Activision

Developer: Learning Technologies Interactive

Resident Evil Director’s Cut – Final Thoughts and Trivia

That was kind of fun, but also kind of difficult. The game is so tight with supplies that it emphasizes the survival aspect of survival horror. The backtracking got a little tedious.
