Well, I said I would get this guide done before the DLC for Resident Evil 5 got here... Two days left! Haha.
In a way, this is not the type of guide that I envisioned. This guide is rushed and I'm not really happy with it. I should have started on it in December rather than the beginning of January. There's really so many other things that I'd like to add to this (S-rank tips, youtube videos, etc). I don't know if I'll ever get around to it though.
If you're familiar with my Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles guide on GameFAQs then you'll probably notice that my guide for Darkside Chronicles follows the exact same template. I usually change them up, but I felt having these two similar to each other would be for the best.
Big thanks to the readers that emailed me in December asking about a Darkside Chronicles guide and an extra special thanks to thesilentman226 from IGN. All of you were a great motivation and I probably wouldn't have even started this without your support.
Anyway, now that I've finally had a break from Resident Evil 5... it's about time to plummet into it once again! I'm going to take a lighter approach to Mercs this time though. I got WAY too involved in the competitive side last year. I'll be more constructive this time and limit my time between playing and writing.
Like I mention in the RE:DSC guide above, there are a few future projects that I am planning for Resident Evil 5:
1) Lost in Nightmares guide
2) Desperate Escape guide
3) Mercenaries Reunion guide
4) Full Revision of the existing RE5 Mercs guide of mine (possible rewrite)
I'm not going to rush through all of this either, so it's probably not going to be posted up very quickly.
Aside from all the above, it really felt good to actually write again. I spent the latter half of last year simply playing RE5 in my free time. It felt good to actually write for a game again. Feels like it's been so long.
After all, this DSC guide is just a warm-up to what else will come later this year. I've found my motivation to write and be constructive in my free time again and that motivation is really strong!
