Resident Evil isn't really about horror any more, it's more super-dramatic The Matrix-meets-Cheesy Soap Opera. I mean, fair enough, the original in the nineties was hardly the most *refined* horror, with some pretty God-awful woodenness and cheap jumpy scares, but at least you had the feeling you were isolated, vulnerable... alone.

Nowadays, it's almost NECESSARY to have a co-op partner in games that follows you around to help you cut through swathes of enemies... and in Resident Evil 5, it's Sheva. Now, there's nothing inherently WRONG with Sheva, but have you SEEN Chris Redfield, the protagonist, now?! He's built like a house, so why does he need help?!

This argument is further reinforced when Chris punches a boulder several times his size into a lake of molten lava. Seriously.

So, taking this into account, why can't he open a locked door without the help of a 95lb lass? Was it so we could play 2-Player Co-op? Second player could've just played as a bicep.

Not having played these games, I had no idea what this was about 'til I read your comment. It was bizarre but still funny. Nice art.

Interesting design! I like how the movement between panels makes it interactive. Very cool.
