Ah!! The Belated Resident Evil Memories…

Nope! I’m NOT a fan of the horror genre in any medium and extra especially video games. Getting thrown into a world with various terrors and all that… no freaking thank you. I do make exceptions for certain special horror games, though. For whatever reason, teenage me was a super fan of the Resident Evil series. I’ve recently babbled about my thoughts on the Resident Evil 2 1-Shot Demo and that’s about it for my ramblings about the series here. While I enjoyed the demo, it definitely reminded me I’m a wuss when it comes to this stuff. Let’s just say I spent a sleepless night binge reading a friend’s blog… with my cats close by because I had no one around to talk to… ahem. Be brave, Ellen!

Anyway, with the exciting launch of the Resident Evil 2 REmake upon behind us, I decided to contribute something to the awesome That Green Dude‘s Resident Evil Memories community project (and this is late since the deadline was January 24th, 2019… sorry, life happens).

So without further intro babbling, here’s a brief glimpse at my terrible memory’s Resident Evil related files. Jeez. I last played these games, like, 10 years ago now. Wow… I’m old.

Blogger Blitz – Grand Finale

And here we are at the final part of my trip down Blogger Blitz 2017 by Adventure Rules memory lane! The whole event was quite the emotional writing journey for me but this last match literally forced Lightning and I to face the feelz head-on. Twas the most INTENSE scenario ever, too. I can’t even begin to try and re-explain it all so I shall quote the host’s description of the fun:

“You have been invited by the steward of the Mushroom Kingdom to assist them with a royal problem. The infant princess, Baby Peach, has begun to develop strange abilities based on her emotions. She literally cries rivers, when she’s angry she bursts into flame, her happiness causes her to float in the air and produce bursts of wind – the only emotional state in which the castle and its staff are safe from her is when she is calm. A doctor is preparing a cure but a courier has to make an overnight trip to pick it up. So the steward needs someone to protect Peach’s Castle from her emotion powers until the cure is delivered.
‘Why not just take her out of the castle?’ you might ask. As fate would have it, there’s an issue with the castle’s power source, the Power Stars. They’ve malfunctioned and now the only thing keeping them running is Peach’s presence in the castle. If she leaves, the Stars will fail and be scattered across the kingdom.
‘We tried having the castle wizard place a spell on her to make her sleep through the night,’ the steward explains, ‘but she is immune to any magic that influences her emotional state.’ There’s another problem too – taking advantage of the castle’s current vulnerability, the evil wizard Kamek has summoned six warriors from other worlds to attack the Mushroom Kingdom. You might recognize them as the defeated competitors from the Blogger Blitz challenge. These warriors, under Kamek’s control, will stop at nothing to kidnap Peach and leave the castle in ruins.”

Whoa!! Right??
