Welcome back De-rez. I've not played Resident Evil, but still made me grin - poor Chris, Umbera everywhere, making him look insane ;)

Not bad. Also a good way of tackling the resi series. In reality it would seem like it makes no sense if explained.

Was the music in the credits taken from the Sims 2?
I have not played resident evil either but this was still excellent.

I half-expected his arms to be portrayed by watermelons, but I guess paper does the trick too.

Thats the biggest forehead I ever seen... Sorry mate, but its the truth. You did your part well tough...BUT DAMN, what a big forehead.

Lack of any costume really killed it for me, gotta say. Good joke, but yeah, it wasnt ''immersive'' at all. My apologices for being negative, but it did look really amateurish. Like, I can see this kind of stuff anywhere. Youtube is full of this kind of stuff.

2/10 imo

Resident Evil 5 was so great, good job parodying it :)

I very much enjoyed it, and I really missed Chris Slack in my life. Thanks Chris!

Never played Resident Evil 5, but I still loved this, it sounds like a really strange addition to the series... I must play it...

Did anyone else love the first gunshot noise? you know, when he was imitating blowing the African natives' brains out?

...

just me?

...

oh

There is no situation that cannot be made more awkward by switching to charades instead of speaking.

The writing of this piece was so top-notch that the lack of real costumes or characterization was completely overlooked. Substance over style, good show.

IS there no-one I can say I really loved this than by saying I really really loved this? Except by sending you a big cheque of course.

That's what I was gonna say. Funny thing though, the low budget-ness didn't stand out as much when everyone else on the site was low budget.

I dont see why people need costumes and stuff, RE5 is pretty real-world in looks and the writing is what matters; besides, the paper moustache/eyebrows were AWESOME. Real props just wouldnt be the same! And I dont need to have played much RE to know how much more sense this makes of it. An entertaining little watch :)

Seriously. No amount of budget or costumes can replace good acting and good writing.

The De briefer played his part extraordinarily greatly. I wouldn't be surprised if he had formal training, here's hoping we see more.

That was abstract and funny, a great video. Hope we don't have to wait as long for the next episode as for this one.

Second that. He was the perfect straight man to Chris's...non-straight man.

Good idea, but it could have been executed a lot better. Try taking more time on your script.

Entertaining for sure, and longer than the actual game to boot!

Okay, I exaggerate, as the game is actually slightly longer than the vid.

Hmm i don't know whats happened to de-rez it used to very good then it kinda went down hill around "Guide to Cool" but there have been some good ones like "E3 trailers", "F*** Microsoft", "The Adventures of Videogame Man", "Team Fortress 2" and "Behind The Game:Valve".

It seems their best days are behind them "The Jack Thompson Movie", "News", "Searching For Gordon Freeman", "Resident Evil(first one)" and "The Truth About 3D Realms".

I know costumes aren't everything but what was used in those earlier episodes were nice and simple items but effective.
Also I feel as if there's a lack of characters in the series compared to older episodes.

I know Chris Slack is supposed to be the star but he could take a back seat sometimes like in some of the older ones like "The Jack Thompson Movie" or have more a sort of dual lead like in "Resident Evil(first one)".
I wish I know what happened as there has been a lack of character diversity that just keeps on getting worse.

The low budget aspect of "De-Rez" has always been part of what made it good but recently it has been taken to a whole new level which is very much unneeded.
So I say bring back more people and simple costumes!!!

Ah well I can only hope.

I seem to remember Chris saying on the forum that most of the old cast members went off to university and such.

(a few minutes of searching later...)

Yeah, pretty much. [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/forums/jump/6.71050.713908]

Speaking of de-rez, though... I was kinda getting used to the 'last Friday of the month' thing, but no new one yet? Sad face. That and the fact that it's more buried (no immediate link on the front page like there used to be) since the redesign makes me suspect the worst. Or maybe I'm just a paranoid tit. I dunno.

Hi Glademaster I feel I need to give you the answers you seem so desperate for.

My name is Darren Lee I worked with Chris and Phil McEwan (Jack Thompson) on the "best of" as you put it. I'm the cameraman in the original resident evil I also did the special effects and editing for the above.

Phil and I did not leave for university at present we have a few personal projects on the go as well as working on a UK television show called "skins".

I'd like to thank you for your comments and for watching the show while we worked on it I'm glad we could put a few smiles on a few faces while we were here.

I hope Russ doesn't mind me posting this but if you'd like to get a fix of Phil (Jack Thompson) we created a teaser for Channel 4 for a show we call Beer Bros.

Again guys thanks for watching.

Nice to hear from ya matey.

So... just to clarify: was that post meant to imply that de-rez as a whole is done (kinda like we've suspected for a while anyway) or just your involvement it it?

Either way, cheers for what you did, that little show provided a hell of a lot of laughs.

Both, someone asked to bring back the old cast which won't be happenining because of other commitments.

I haven't been speaking to Chris directly so this is unofficial but from what I hear is that the show is over though they could bring it back.

Maybe you guys should petition for a return :)
