Thanks for asking, but I don't think you know what a "noob" I am. My only first hand experience with the series is RE4 and I have not even finished it.
Everything I know that isn't in RE4 are random things I've picked up from these forums. My knowledge over the RE series is like a puzzle where many small pieces are more or less correctly placed, but most of the pieces are still in the box. Very fragmented to say the least.
And since the action takes place in Raccoon City I doubt anything from RE4 would fit into your story. Or what do you think?
