You know this game is ancient and it’s been ported to nearly every system. If you haven’t played it by now I don’t know where you’ve been but I’ll put it out there anyway. A small spoiler warning for people who have never played the first or for that matter any Resident Evil game.
RE1: Wesker’s Theme
We don’t put too much thought in it now but back then this was a fairly big deal. I know Resident Evil isn’t quite the game for character building but through the horror you begin to build up a strange bond with these people. The journey is a frightening and lonely one, so when you have any character interaction you feel some degree of security. Wesker was no exception… until you learn that he has betrayed all of you, or rather he was never on your side to begin with. To me this was quite the shock because again, I began feeling close to these people. His theme music is very fitting for the occasion, even if the dialog/VA isn’t the best for such a tense moment.

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.
A Few things about me
- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.
- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.
- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.
- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.
- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time
- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).
- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.
- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:
My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:
