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.

Woo! Video game demos. It’s been a while since I tried out one of those. They’re great, though! A nice way to get a feel for a game before you commit. With all the hype surrounding the Resident Evil 2 demo being released, I decided to try it out too. I have pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition of the Resident Evil 2 REmake so I might as well see what’s in store (the sweet Leon statue got to me… and yes, I am part of the problem).

Hey! Listen. You know that popular Christmas song called the 12 Days of Christmas? Athena over at AmbiGaming came up with a cool holiday themed community collaboration idea to gamify that kinda-as-annoying-as-Navi song (that we all love or hate). Basically, it’s a countdown list each day that ends up with 364 items, times however many bloggers do this, at the end of the event (something like that… my maths is bad). Be warned that my singing voice is terrible, but here we go, eh!
🎶 On the 3rd day of Blogmas, the gamers said to me: What are 10 reasons you’d play a game? 🎶

If you’re reading this, I finished another monthly(ish) update post AND I haven’t deleted my new website yet. Look at me sticking with things. Yay me! Just a reminder, Livid Lightning’s fiscal month begins on the 13th for reasons.
Anyway, life’s A LOT messed up for me lately, and I needed to take an extended break from everything (thus missing my 2nd monthly update post thingy). BUT gaming and blogging things are moving along again, so that’s good! Also nice and distracting. Thank you, video games and social media world!! Once I get a diagnosis from my country’s slow-ass healthcare system, I’ll likely vent a bit about what’s going on. Until then, everything is fine…
