Neo continues to struggle his way through the police station, slowly covering every area that he can, wary of anything that might be lurking in the shadows or around the next corner, just out of sight. But thankfully he eventually manages to locate all three medallions for the Goddess statue in the main hall of the RPD, which he uses to open up the passageway hidden underneath it. He follows the path to what appears to be an underground facility, and shortly after entering it he finds a young girl hiding in a room. Neo and Claire attempt to get to her, but the girl tells Claire that she "needs help". Confused by this statement at first, both Neo and Claire quickly discover its meaning as they suddenly find themselves faced by a man whose right arm has mutated into something monstrous, with its most prominent feature being a giant eyeball located on what should be the arm's shoulder - and the eye has set its sights on Claire. The mutated man attacks Claire, and Neo's first boss battle ensues.

After a few tries Neo eventually manages to beat the mutated man, who disappears further into the factory, and Neo meets back up with the young girl. After Claire and the girl, who goes by the name "Sherry Birkin", formally introduces themselves, they and Neo find an elevator that takes them to the basement parking lot of the RPD. They attempt to leave it through the main gate, but find it locked, with a key card needed to open it. But before Neo can decide where he should go after discovering this, he, Claire and Sherry find themselves held at gunpoint by RPD Chief of Police Brian Irons...

The RPD proves to be almost as unsafe as the rest of the zombie-infested Raccoon City, as it too has groups of them wandering its halls looking for any victims unfortunate enough to encounter them. There's only one officer that Neo and Claire encounter (not counting Leon), as all the other ones are either dead, undead or simply nowhere to be seen. On top of that, this officer, called Marvin, is severely wounded. This means that Neo and Claire have to explore the RPD on their own, and as they begin exploring they make note of everything they come across, and gradually begin unlocking some of the locked doors as they find key items scattered throughout the building. They also find a series of notes from other officers during the outbreak, all of which detail horrific tales of survival that always sees more of their numbers decreasing, and really serve to highlight just how dire things in Raccoon City have become...

Neo and Claire briefly run into Leon again as they're exploring the building, before being separated once more, forcing Neo to resume his solitary search of the RPD, which proves to be difficult as the zombies prove to be more troublesome to deal with than Neo anticipated. Indeed, it would seem that much of Neo's experience with previous RE titles may not help him here as much as he hoped, but despite the difficulties he faces Neo manages to keep moving forward inch-by-inch...

September 1998... the month and year where the world is formally introduced to true terror, with ground zero for this new age of fear being the American Midwestern town of Racoon City...

With both the "Ecliptic Express" ("Resident Evil Zero") and "Mansion" ("Resident Evil") incidents put behind them, the surviving members of Raccoon City Police Department's special forces team S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics And Rescue Service) attempt to shed light on the horrific conspiracy surrounding these incidents to the rest of Raccoon City and the general public. But Umbrella Inc., the pharmaceutical giant that was ultimately responsible for setting both of these incidents in motion, has its home in Raccoon City, where they practically employ most of the city's population through their various local businesses, and the general public see Umbrella as a whole in a positive light - no one believed the survivors' story about how Umbrella was conducting secret, illegal viral experiments in the nearby Arklay Mountains, and even if any of them did they'd have to challenge the very same company that employs them and risk putting themselves in serious financial strain, and it became obvious that NO ONE would be willing to do that... On top of all that, the surviving S.T.A.R.S. members' attempt to start a formal investigation into the company itself is impeded by the R.P.D's Chief of Police himself, making any attempts on their end to obtain legal evidence of Umbrella's misdoings close to impossible. Weeks pass without further incident... until a series of strange attacks begin taking place in the streets of Raccoon City itself, ones that mirror the same attacks that took place in the Arklay Mountains prior to the Ecliptic Express and Mansion Incidents...

Fast-forward to the present day in late September of 1998 - Leon S. Kennedy, a new recruit of Raccoon City's R.P.D., and Claire Redfield, the younger sister of R.P.D. S.T.A.R.S. member and survivor Chris Redfield, both make their way into Raccoon city, with Leon wanting to investigate the week's long silence from the R.P..D after being told to stay away from the city and await on standby for further orders, and Claire wanting to look into the whereabouts of her older brother after not hearing from him for several weeks on end. Unfortunately for them both, they're about to walk straight into a living nightmare that could be adequately described as "Hell on Earth"... and they have to rely on Neosekken to help them make it through it. Things look quite grim indeed, and Neo is not certain how much his past experience with earlier RE titles will help him with this remake of the classic PlayStation 1 game. To make matters even more challenging, he decides to try out the game's "Hardcore" mode right out of the gate despite never having played it before in order to bring some of the gameplay closer to that of the classic games (limited saves included). This is undoubtedly going to make life hell for Neo at various points, but despite the deck being effectively stacked against him he's feeling confident enough that he'll be able to clear the game on Hardcore mode without TOO much trouble.

God help the dumb bastard if the exact opposite ends up proving to be true...

Neo, Neil and Eva continue to ping-pong between the earlier and later years of Colin's life, they slowly make their way towards his later adult years, and as they do so it becomes quite apparent how much of an influence that Colin's childhood friend Faye seems to have had throughout his life, from when they first met each other in grade school to even his teenage years when he decided to try to become a pilot. This makes Faye's utter absence from his later years quite mysterious, with her not so much as even being mentioned by name by Colin or anyone he's seen interacting with through his later memories. It also makes Neo wonder if Faye is somehow connected to the anomaly that appears to be affecting Colin's mind as he tries to travel to the center of whatever the anomaly is, but Neo finds it difficult to determine just how Faye ties into everything.

To make things more complicated, one of Neil and Eva's co-workers from their place of business happens to uncover a secret that Neil has been keeping hidden in his office, and gets in touch with Neil and Eva to let them know that they're coming to their location to help them with their case, but they make it clear to Neil that they're onto them in a discreet manner that Eva doesn't pick up on...

As Neo attempts to travel further back into Colin's memories, he finds himself jumping back and forth between the earliest and most recent parts of his life instead of progressively moving backward, as is what should be happening. This paints an ominous picture, especially as Eva and Neil are unable to come up with any solid theories as to what sort of anomaly is affecting Colin - all they know is that the anomaly seems to be moving them across Colin's memories in something resembling a spiral pattern. Neo can't help but wonder what exactly is in the center of this "spiral", but with nothing to help him make sense of the anomaly he decides to do what Neil and Eva suggest that they do: just keep moving "forward" and just deal with whatever issues as they arise, since they really have no better alternative methods they can follow anyway.

To that end, they begin taking as many details from Colin's life as they can, hoping to find any clues that will help them solve the mystery of this anomaly as well as determine the exact nature of Colin's wish.

With him having recently completed "A Bird Story", Neo begins the second follow-up to "To The Moon" with great anticipation for what kind of tale that he and the two main characters, Eva and Neil, will experience.

Our story begins with Neo witnessing Eva and Neil JUST BARELY managing to avoid causing the single biggest road accident in all of human history. Neil and Neo are suitably freaked out, but Eva is as chill as Frosty the Snowman (comparatively speaking). Shortly after narrowly avoiding the creation of the Fallout universe, it becomes clear through their discussion and what equipment they have with them that they are going somewhere to meet with a new "client" whom they are undoubtedly going to do for him what they did for Johnny back in "To The Moon": to recreate the memories of their life to resemble something their client will see as more "ideal" so they can live out their new lives in their dreams before they inevitably pass on, in order to give them a "second chance" at life. The duo soon arrive at their client's residence (although not before Neo was given the opportunity to put a school-age bully in their place in a way that is befitting for how they were tormenting another kid), where they meet the client in question, a one "Colin Reeds", along with his wife and son.

Colin's wife makes it clear she doesn't find Neil and Eva's presence desirable, although she won't try to stop them from doing their job. Their son, Asher Reeds, is more welcoming, but is understandably curious about just how the procedure that they are going to put his father through is supposed to work. Soon all of Neil and Eva's equipment is set, and they enter Colin's conciousness and begin speaking to his mental avatar to let him know of their purpose. He allows them to proceed with their work in granting him his last wish.

What IS this last wish, exactly? To describe it succinctly, Colin wants Neil and Eva to fix any regrets in his life while keeping his memories of his family intact. Neo, Eva and Neil all wonder how they're supposed to use this vague description as a good starting point, but with nothing better to work with they proceed to start going back into Colin's earlier memories - although Neo sees something strange right as this process starts that fills him with a sense of unease...

With the last act of Chapter 4 ending on what might be a tremendous clue that could help him solve the nature of the strange curse that seems to have befallen Hinamizawa, Neo goes into the Cast Interview for Chapter 4 with the hope that brain-storming with the cast will help him get all his mental notes in order so he can try to come up with some big theories over what exactly might be happening in Hinamizawa, and whether or not he has any idea on how the main cast can ever get out of their predicament. With this final episode of Chapter 4 the "Question Arcs" of Higurashi come to a close, and the next time Neo decides to revisit Hinamizawa it will be time for him to start getting some answers that will prove or disprove his theories...

The final showdown between the surviving students and the mastermind who trapped them all is finally here. Everyone gave it their best during their investigation, and now they will have to use every bit of information they've uncovered during both the murder investigation itself and all that they've experienced inside Hope's Peak Academy to uncover the identity of both the mastermind and Mukuro's killer, as well as uncovering the true nature behind their imprisonment inside Hope's Peak itself. There's a lot information to to go over, but if Neo and the others falter during the trial then they put their lives on the line. and the mastermind makes it clear they'll kill them all if they're unable to continue solving everything that's thrown at them. Neo, Makoto and the survivors are about to face their greatest challenge inside Hope's Peak Academy, but they are more determined then ever to come out on top and earn their freedom from their prison, and even if they should fail in the end Neo knows one thing for certain:

He'll go down swinging!

Fast-forward to the present day, Neo, Akasaka and Akasaka's young daughter find themselves meeting up with a retired Ooshi. Akasaka and Ooshi take the time to fill each other in on what they've been up to since they last saw each other in Hinamizawa over half a decade ago, and reminiscence over the events. Akasaka tells Ooshi about how he raised his daughter on his own after his wife died during his case in Hinamizawa, and ever since then he's continued his line of work, now much more experienced than he was when he and Ooshi first met. Meanwhile, Ooshi tells Akasaka about how he acts as a consultant for police agencies while also enjoying activities like ballroom dancing.

Discussions like these continue on for a while, until the topic of the Great Hinamizawa Disaster from 1 year ago is brought up... and how the entire area is still uninhabitable due to the gases effect on the place and the quarantine that's been in place ever since. They both comment on the tragedy of it all, yet its clear there's a sense of unease plaguing them both over the incident and just how little information there actually is that explains what happened in the village and the surrounding region. On top of that, there's still the issue surrounding the mysterious string of murders and disappearances that occured over 5 years leading up to the disaster. Akasaka then remembers Rika Furude, and Ooshi tells him of the horrible way in which she was murdered right before the disaster took place.

It is then that Akasaka slowly begins to realize that everything that Rika told him when she made her predictions over what would occur over the next 5 years after the kidnapping incident in Hinamizawa had come to pass, and with this realization comes another realization: the REAL reason Rika reached out to Akasaka and told him of these predictions... and the real reason hits both him and Neo hard. To make matters worse, it is around this time that Neo and Akasaka both realize the implications behind Rika's predictions having come true...

When Akasaka expresses regret over his inability to realize all this information a lot sooner, Ooshi shares his own regrets over the last several years leading up to the Disaster and how it ultimately screwed up his own efforts to uncover the truth of what was really occurring in Hinamizawa at the time. He tells Akasaka that if he's serious about wanting to make things up to Rika, and by extension everyone who died in Hinamizawa, then they'll need to work together to uncover the truth of what really happened, since Rika's predictions seem to provide a massive clue that indicates that something more sinister than either of them ever realized had to have been happening in Hinamizawa, and that everyone in the village ended up paying for it with their lives...

After Neo, Makoto and Kyoko reappear in front of Monokuma and get him to agree to redo Mukuro's Class Trial, they meet up with everyone else to inform them of the situation. Everyone is happy to see that Makoto survived, but the celebration is short-lived as it becomes clear to everyone that they'll need to give it their all for the upcoming investigation, as they'll need to do more than solve the mystery of Mukuro's death - they'll need to solve all the remaining mysteries of Hope''s Peak Academy as well. Failure to do so will result in the mastermind's final victory, and everyone else's deaths at their hands. With this in mind, everyone splits up and begins investigating every single corner of the school they can think of that might contain any useful clues.

During his own investigation, Neo uncovers evidence in previously locked areas of the school that gives credence to the idea that EVERYONE, including Makoto, may have actually meet one another BEFORE the events of the Killing Game... which Neo and Makoto realize in retrospect that they've been uncovering hints of such a theory as far back as Chapter 3. On top of that, Neo and Makoto help Kyoko uncover a hidden room inside the headmaster's dorm room in the teacher's dormitory, which contain answers as to what exactly happened with the headmaster of Hope's Peak Academy. Finally, using ALL the evidence he gathers towards the later half of his investigation along with some deductive reasoning, Neo manages to piece together the identity of the mastermind.

Eventually, the lengthy investigation comes to an end, and Neo is certain that he's got all the information and evidence he needs to engage the mastermind head-on. Feeling determined, Neo and Makoto step onto the elevator that will take them to the site of the final Class Trial...

With "To The Moon" having a lasting emotional impact on Neosekken, he can't help but feel a bit excited over what "A Bird Story", the prequel of the sequel to To The Moon, will bring to the table. The game's artistic style is similar to what he saw in To The Moon... but the last thing he expected was A Bird Story's narrative to be a silent one. Nevertheless, Neo quickly finds himself becoming engrossed in the tale of a young boy and a bird he rescues one day and nurse's back to health, and the ensuing bond the two form together... although the very surreal imagery in the story certainly has poor Neo constantly scratching his head a bit. But the big question Neo has on his mind by the time he reaches this story's conclusion is how this strange, but ultimately bittersweet tale will tie in to the events that will soon follow in "Finding Paradise"...?

In case you don't want to listen to the video, I'll give you the shorter version of what's going on right here:

It would seem that I've suddenly been given a LOT more hours on my work schedule for this week for my day job, and I've been scheduled in such a way that making my usual amount of weekly content in a timely manner would prove quite difficult, and not helping matters is how the whole pandemic panic surrounding Covit-19 is basically causing everyone in my local area to start flooding all the businesses stocking up on supplies like we're about to experience some kind of big natural disaster. This is making my own place of work an absolutely chaotic nightmare to manage right now, and as a result it has become quite stressful to work in it for long periods. Not helping matters is my place of work is currently understaffed due to a bunch of people calling out due to sickness and God knows what else.

So in response to all these recent developments, I've decided that the best course of action for me is to delay making next week's content like I originally planned to start doing today and focus on dealing with my day job throughout this week. As long as no other further developments like this take place my plan is to try to back to making more content NEXT week and have it prepared for the week AFTER, and have everything resume being released on the usual schedule. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed.

I really didn't want to have to do this, but I feel I've got enough on my plate right now as it is and I want to make sure I'm keeping my stress levels under control as much as possible until things finally start calming down for me. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you guys. I'll try to at least stay in touch with all of you and respond to comments whenever I can muster up the energy for it. I'll keep you all up-to-date on what's going on on the Discord server in the meantime. Stay healthy!

Akasaka wakes up in Dr. Irie;s clinic after having passed out from his injuries from his skirmish with Toshiki's kidnappers, and Ooshi fills him in on what's happened: in short, they've succeeded in rescuing Toshiki. With Toshiki now in police custody, everyone feels they can finally rest easy, even though the perpetrators behind his kidnapping appeared to have gotten away. Akasaka then decides to try and call his wife to let her know the good news and that he'd be returning home very soon.

When he tries using the public phone in the clinic, he discovers that the cord has been cut in what appears to be a very deliberate fashion. However, unlike Neo, the alarm bells don't start ringing in Akasaka's head, and he decides to leave the clinic altogether to find another public phone to use, rather than use one of the clinic's office phones when a staff member offered him the chance to do so... because reasons. However, things get more ominous when EVERY SINGLE PHONE he comes across and tries to use is sabotaged in some fashion, from having the cords but to having their entire receiver destroyed. It is then that Akasaka notices that someone is watching him from the distance: Rika.

Deciding not to bother with Rika, Akasaka tries walking back to the clinic, but Rika follows him... and they start discussing all the events that have occurred over the past week, with Akasaka and Neo trying to piece everything together as they continue talking and seeing how Rika reacts to what Akasaka says. Eventually, the three of them find themselves not arriving at the clinic but the Furude Shrine, and it is here that Rika, alongside continuing their conversation on the week's events, gives Akasaka a series of predictions that will over over the next half decade... and they all accurately detail events Neo has heard about in the previous three chapters that lead up to the present day that the last three chapters take place during.

It is around this point that Neo begins seriously contemplating Rika's true nature, and how it, along with Rika herself, fits into the grander mystery surrounding all the mysterious deaths, disappearances and the so-called curse of Oyashiro-sama...

Akasaka receives a call from Ooshi to come see him at the Okinomiya Police Station. When he arrives, both he and Ooshi go over a wallet that was recently turned in that appears to belong to Toshiki Inugai, and they use all the information that they know about it, including where the wallet was supposedly discovered, to try and guess the approximate location that Toshiki is likely being held. Once they determine a location, they begin driving through Hinamizawa to go to an abandoned village located close to it, and on the way there the watch as a group of protesters raise a serious racket at the dam construction site. Neo and Akasaka also see Rika there, and she stares at Akasaka as he and Ooshi drive through the protest, leaving Akasaka and Neo both feeling very uneasy...

Eventually they arrive at the border of the abandoned village, and on the way there they run into Dr. Irie, who gives them a false story as to what he's doing there when Ooshi tries inquiring with him about the topic, and Ooshi uses what Irie tells him in conjunction with what they know about the abandoned village itself to piece together that the kidnappers were most likely indeed somewhere on the premises. They enter the village, and soon come across the kidnappers - and a fight ensues between the two groups Akasaka and Ooshi try to get their hands on Toshiki...

[BLIND LET'S PLAY]

After Akasaka parts ways with Ooshi and one of the other players of their game, who was revealed to be the dam foreman of the Hinamizawa Dam Project, Akasaka goes on a drive with the informant, and during said drive the informant tells Akasaka of a meeting that took place between the Three Families' leaders prior to his arrival in the area. Discussions are had between them regarding their strategies to continue opposing the Dam Project in any way they can, but at some point the topic of the kidnapping of the Construction Minister's grandson is brought up, which Akasaka and Neo find significant because information relating to the kidnapping is supposed to be top secret, so the fact that ANYBODY at this meeting knew about it was highly suspicious.

But that's not the only bit of top secret information that the leaders of Hinamizawa discussed during this meeting. What was brought up next made Neo and Akasaka realize the full scope of just how dangerous it was for them to be in Hinamizawa right then and there...

Thanks to the timely intervention of Alter Ego, Neo and Makoto manage to avoid being crushed to death by the sudden execution they were set up for during the Class Trial. They find themselves trapped inside what appears to be the school's garbage dump, and try looking for a way out but to no avail. Thinking that their fate is to starve to death in there, Neo and Makoto decide to try and conserve as much of their energy as they can as they wait for what seems to be their inevitable demise... only to witness Kyoko literally drop in to rescue them. While Kyoko brings Makoto up to speed over what happened after the Class Trial, they begin discussing the predicament Kyoko believes the mastermind has now found themselves in, along with information relating to Kyoko's investigation before they saw each other again at the beginning of the Class Trial. Kyoko found out more information about the Ultimate Despair while she was looking around the second floor of the dormitory, an area that no one had access to without the key Kyoko managed to find, which was where she hiding until she saw the masked figure try to attack Makoto in his room the night before.

But while Makoto and Kyoko continue discussing all of this and working their way out of the garbage dump, a topic that has been in the back of Makoto and Neo's minds for as long as they've known Kyoko is brought up: Kyoko's true identity, including what her "Ultimate" ability is. It is then that a massive puzzle piece that can help Neo and Makoto solve the mystery of the school is slowly made apparent as Kyoko explains how her very presence may have played a role in how the events inside the school were set up by the mastermind...

SPOILERS IN THE DESCRIPTION! READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

With the sudden murder investigation being brought to a close, everyone heads to the site of the Class Trial, although things get off to a rather ludicrous start when someone goes radically off-topic right out of the gate, forcing Neo and Makoto to waste time on a nonsensical contradiction. But after getting things back on track, everybody tries piecing together what they can about the victim, who is firmly established during the trial to be Mukuro Ikusaba, and their actions leading up to their death. The provided clues paint a vague and incomplete picture, but despite this the trial moves ahead... until Neo and Makoto find themselves having to defend their innocence in a duel of sorts between Makoto and Kyoko, when Kyoko starts finding ways that evidence implicating her of the crime could also have been committed by Makoto. Kyoko warns everyone to not place the blame for Mukuro's death on her, because, in her words, if she dies then so does solving the mystery of Hope's Peak Academy, and she makes it clear through her actions throughout the trial that she doesn't intend to go down without a serious fight... but neither are Neo and Makoto.

It is then that it slowly becomes apparent that everything about the entire Class Trial is fishy, but by the time Neo and Makoto seriously start considering the oddities of the trial they soon find themselves having to make a decision... and both outcomes lead to him falling into a deadly trap...

With Neo and Akasaka's last conversation with Rika weighing heavily on their minds, both of them are feeling down and uncertain over their involvement with all the tense events enveloping Hinamizawa and the surrounding region, with Akasaka wondering if he should seriously consider Rika's warning and just leave Hinamizawa. But later that night Akasaka gets a call from Ooshi, who manages to arrange a meeting between his informant and Akasaka, and Akasaka goes to meet with him in Okinomiya, eager to get any serious leads.

But as it turns out, Neo and Akasaka won't be able to just ask Ooshi and the informant for the information they seek just by simply asking about it. Ooshi and the informant inform Akasaka that if he wants to get the information from them as quickly as he can he will have to beat them and an additional person at a game of Mah-jong, otherwise he will have to get dragged around town a bit first before they decide to spill the beans. Akasaka agrees to their terms, and shortly thereafter Neo finds himself playing the most intense game of Mah-jong he's ever read. But Akasaka eventually comes out on top and beats them all at their game, and Neo can't help but find Akasaka a bit cool after everything is all said and done.

With the body they found the garden burned to such a degree to where getting a positive I.D. just by looking at their face proves impossible, everyone looks at the parts of the body that remain intact and try to gather whatever clues they can find from those. Unfortunately, the clues they DO find seemingly do little to help them figure out the corpse's identity - but what they DO find near the corpse turns out to be a key to the Data Center on the 4th floor. Taking this key, they use it to enter the Data Center proper, and they not only that its a giant monitor room that shows video feed throughout the entire school (indicating that this is the room the mastermind has been using to monitor everyone)... a live broadcast from these cameras is being transmitted to the airwaves for all the world to see, which Monokuma, who unexpectedly shows up while everyone was investigating the Data Center, tells them when asked about a TV in the room that shows nothing but video feed from the security cameras.

It is then that Monokuma tells everyone that they have to investigate the death of the masked corpse in the garden in preparation for the upcoming 5th Class Trial, surprising everyone since the Body Discovery Announcement wasn't actually made when they discovered the body initially. But being left with no choice but to do what Monokuma wants, Neo and the others begin their investigation, feeling a sense of unease over events to come...

With Neo still feeling shocked over the events leading to Chapter 3's tragic end, Neo decides to check out the cast interview he's unlocked and go over Chapter 3's events with the main cast, as well as try to figure out how its events relate to the two previous chapters in any way. There's a lot of stuff to sift through, but Neo does his best to try and form some coherent theories.

[BLIND LET'S PLAY]

With the events of Higurashi Chapter 3 behind him, Neo takes over the role of a new character, one Akasaka Mamoru, as he finds himself wrapped up into the investigation of a government official's grandson's kidnapping during the Hinamizawa Dam Wars that take place about half a decade before the events of the previous three chapters. What secrets will Neo uncover in this prequel of sorts that will help him find some answers to some of the mysteries he's been presented with over the course of the last three chapters? Maybe. He's got only one way to find out: Join Akasaka on his journey to Hinamizawa during the dam wars as he tries to locate the government official's kidnapped grandson!
