  • Hey Forerunner, remember when I told you about my old 2002 Gamecube official strategy guide with the STARS biography? Well, I finally found it in my old bookshelf in storage. I'm not sure if its cannon but I will give you the details. These are the extra details you asked about with the makers of the magazine...

    • its from "Brady Games
    • it's by Dan Birlew
    • Signature series
    • it has the Capcom trademark

    This is exactly what it says about Joseph Frost's biography...

    "Frosty" is a seasoned former commando trained in the Navy SEALS and experienced in Gulf War operation Desert Storm. Recently promoted from the Bravo Team, he acts as the vehicle specialist of the unit. "Frosty" prides himself in assuming the dangerous point position during field operations, and his tactical swiftness and brilliance make him the perfect officer on the frontlines".

    This magazine is almost 20 years old (my God has it been that long??). I got it when the remake was brand new. I'm not sure if that extra info helps, but I figured you would be interested in looking into it

    • There is a theory I just read on this wiki regarding the hunters in the training facility... I don't think it is correct, because I was under the impression that Birkin created the Hunters AFTER Marcus's assassination... when you get a chance, check out the Hunter (MA-121) page, in the "use for combat" section. It states that Marcus used the training room for guards to combat the Hunters... The training room had skeletons... probably fallen USS troops from the '80s. I always thought the training room was for the experimental monkeys Marcus created. For some reason, it housed Hunters. What's up with that?

    • Maybe that Hunter page outta be corrected?... I will leave it up to you if that's the case. I just figured I point it out. It's hard to get clear answers on the RE series haha...

  • Is the stuff posted on the "Talk" page of an article monitored, or should I contact you directly about it?

  • Recently while navigating the Resident Evil 3 page on ResidentEvil.Net I found a small piece of text that I don't know if it is in the game(I doubt) and want to know of it should be considered canon since ResidentEvil.net is used to track your game progress(or global) and points you can collect to get new icons. This is what I saw and it makes sense but it also means Nemesis has been seen by people not included in the story but could also play into Brad warning Jill of Nemesis. But it also means that despite bieng dropped off near Jill's apartment he did wander around the area for some time before attacking Jill.

  • Hello! We’ve been analyzing what makes people spend more time on wikis and we’ve identified something. It’s comments! Having comments enabled on a wiki gives it a boost to the time people spend on the pages and engage with the wiki. 


    We would like to enable comments on your wiki to help it grow as part of an experiment. 

    This will not happen if you don’t agree with trying this out! It’s entirely up to you! 

    We believe that this experiment will help your wiki and if you have any problems along the way we can always roll back and disable comments. 

    So, what do you think? Are you interested in trying this with us? We’d love to work with you to help grow your community! 

    Looking forward to hearing from you! ​​​​​​​

    • We tried Article Comments on and off over the past few years. It became very difficult to manage as the population grew, since the big flaw of Comments is that you can see comments from years ago and respond to them and everyone else see it all. Typical examples we'd end up with include:

      1. Recurring trolls and their sockpuppets using it as a means of harassing admins by inserting derogatory comments into active or years-old conversations to weaken our standing amongst casual readers (e.g. "don't trust X, he's a £$%^ who lies about everything and will probably delete my post!").
      2. Users mocking people who were wrong about something in a new game/film, ignorant that they're responding to 5-year comments.
      3. Soapboxing that each character has been ruined by a global feminist conspiracy because they can't get upskirt shots of them, then dragging it on to complain about the admins taking away their right to free speech.

      Whole thing became impossible to deal with since we were by the end of it probably deleting 80% of comments a day for being hostile or irrelevant. Along with that we'd get Message Wall posts targetting us for doing our jobs and accusing us of being shills and how it's "people like us" who ruin the franchise by disagreeing with them. I even got a long-winded one calling me a Nazi because I deleted a nonsensical rant about how "SJWs are ruining Resident Evil" (because he didn't like how the camera went from 3rd person to 1st person). I was the last-holdout in an otherwise unanimous agreement by the admins to remove the system altogether earlier this year.

      TL;DR - Comments sounds great in theory, but it can cause a feedback loop where toxicity feeds into itself.

  • 23 de Octubre de 2005
    He asked why he was watching the movie again and when the dome is going to unburden the incinerator, on a screen it indicates that Sunday October 23, 2005.

    But Resident Evil Archives II indicates that it is November 2005.

    That means a date must be wrong.

    • Thanks for spotting. I imagine there was a change in the film and no one corrected either version of Angela's Diary that we used as a source! Warrants some further study - thanks for the pic.

    • It is good to know this ... Since in the Spanish wiki we have also used the date of November 2005.

      I haven't even discussed the date with the wiki bureaucrat yet.

  • I have an RE collection myself that dates back to the late 90's when the original came out. All the action figures, strategy guides, SD Perry collection (which is its own universe), ect. I wouldn't edit anything using fan fiction. I'm all about cannon. In the official strategy guide I purchased back in 2003 (still have it), it clearly states in the biography section that Joseph was a former Navy SEAL (in the remake), and served in the Gulf war.

    • So, I have this theory regarding the UBCS... maybe get some feedback.

      So, I read on another website that the UBCS recieve their training on Rockfort Island. I personally don't really know for sure, I always thought Rockfort was exclusive to USS only... But if that were the case... one wouldnt think every operator in the UBCS recieved training at Rockfort Island, right?

      I served in Afghanistan back in the day, so I'm thinking of this topic in sort of a militaristic point of view on how exactly the UBCS is structured. I can imagine that maybe the UBCS unit seperates its operators. We know that most Umbrella guards and soldiers are shady. Men without conscience. I'm sure Umbrella does personality checks, and sends only the most heinous mercenaries to recieve extra training at Rockfort (sort of like a promotion), and then used as a cleanup crew supporting the USS during outbreaks. Maybe after each member is recruited and had a personality test, the non-sociopathic mercenaries, such as Carlos and Mikhail, are left in the dark and has no BOW training from Rockfort. Instead, they operate soley as a rescue team. Carlos and Mikhail are not bad guys... not exactly Eagle Scouts haha... But I cant imagine that they would turn the other cheek to the concentration camp at Rockfort. Plus the Mercenary's diary in RE3 made it seem like the UBCS were seperated into 2 categories...

      1.)Rescue Team ( also specializing in countering corporate terrorism and VIP abduction)

      2.)Clean up crew (who have a higher security clearance within the UBCS)

      I don't know, what do you think?

    • There's no real description I can find of their camp structure, so it's possible they were all trained in anti-BOW combat on Rockfort. Given the UBCS had to be ready in case of viral outbreaks or BOW escapes, I'd imagine they were required to undergo this training. Since Umbrella was headhunting for these mercenaries, I'd imagine they had already reviewed them to some extent.

      The UBCS we know who had access to classified information, like Tyrell and Mikhail, were Monitors, it should be noted. Umbrella Chronicles reveals that Col. Sergei Vladimir placed these Monitors across the company as secret police, who'd inform him of any suspicious activity. They were then following his orders to collect data on the UBCS' fight.

      I'd argue instead that all four Platoons had limited experience fighting Mutants, and perished due to being swamped as Nikolai suggested in the original RE3 rather than having no knowledge of mutants at all and dying from neckbites after trying to help evacuate Zombies.
