What point are you trying to get across here? It sounds like shes just putting her fantasies into words. Heres a summary Albert Wesker = Mysterious Bad Guy, Leon Kenedy = Street Smart Good Guy, All up Resident Evil REALLY popular!!

What's the point in any light hearted reporting? Why is it that weekly someone is like "if it's not epic and dramatic and full of controversy, it's not news"?

I liked the post, it points out a rather consistent theme by Capcom of having loose ends and really odd ways of managing their portfolio of characters in a given title.

There really are quite a large amount of games doing it as well and it's annoying when you catch someone who was in a game 3 instances ago in the latest title with 3x the muscle and the ability to make your head explode when nothing explains how that even came about.

Are you asking us or the author about this article?

I really see no "fantasy" in this article for that matter (other than pointing out his bulging . . . biceps ^_~).

She is just pointing out one of the antagonists behind the scenes of nearly the entire Resident Evil series, who clearly does not enjoy much of the limelight. She even says, "there isn't much to talk about as far as character depth and background goes." No strange "fantasies" of Wesker spiriting her away to do naughty things to her.

What she does is hint at the things that Wesker has done in the series: driving Chris crazy, leader of a secret operation, mutated human. These plot devices will surely pop up again and again so Capcom can continue with their popular Resident Evil series.

And with most mysterious antagonists, each new game in the series will shed more light on his character until he's not so mysterious anymore.

Remember that not everyone is as familiar with the Resident Evil series as you may be, and this article may help them understand the story especially if they started later in the series.

The story is much more complicated than Wesker being a bad guy and Leon being a good guy, and this article helps flesh out Wesker's history.

Not to hate but it seems the author spent about 4/5ths of the article building up to something and then nothing.

There's a lot to talk about concerning Wesker, as any fan of the series can no doubt tell you. A better summary of this article would be: "There's not much we know. But what we know is obvious so no point in getting into it."

Funnily enough, isn't that how Capcom is dealing with this character? Most of the time you gain some relevant information, only to have the man disappear or whatnot (oh he died, but he really planned it xD).

Of course any fan can tell you what he's done so far, but any person who is new to the series won't have the luxury of playing through the earlier games in the series.

"Remember that not everyone is as familiar with the Resident Evil series as you may be, and this article may help them understand the story especially if they started later in the series."

That maybe so but Capcom must be doing something right with all the interest these games are getting, controversial and otherwise. I think this article should link to the Wesker Reports for those who want a better impression of Albert Wesker to be honest.

ok scratch that last bit. but it should be more obvious if an explanation of Wesker is what this article is about.

To be honest, I think we have differing opinions on the matter.

I like how these weekly articles are a refreshing mix of fun and fact, but really that's a matter of personal opinion. =)

Tbh, we need more "fun" articles on Neoseeker. Most gaming sites have them. Neoseeker is definitely lacking in that area.
So good job, Lydia! Wesker is definitely an underrated RE character, especially considering he's the main baddie of the series. He needs to show up alot more often, rather than playing behind the scenes or appearing in minor mini-game-esque sequences.

There is nothing particularly suave or blatantly attractive about him at first glance
wut? He's been my RE man-candy since the very first moment he appeared in Resident Evil. (the actor that played him in the intro ... I will find him).

As long as you're willing to share, I fully endorse this.
