RESIDENT EVIL 3 Jill-in' like a villain

Would we like to switch to Aim Assisted mode? This embarrassing and frankly condescending question keeps cropping up as OPM repeatedly dies at the hands of its Nemesis. No, we would not,we do have some pride. Besides, it’s not our aim that’s the problem. It’s Nemesis. He’s big, he’s a bully, and it’s just not fair.
