I haven't seen the first ep yet. My cable is on the fritz
However, I picked up where I left off on my RE4 and remembered some great little money makers.
-Flash grenades on a couple areas with Crows paid off lovely. Forgot Flashes turn em into $$$$
-Area with all the Illuminados took one grenade for a another nice $$$ payoff
-Spiral cave with all the bugs paid off with 28/33 bugs giving me G/B/R jewels.
I'm still using a fully upgraded Punisher, Riot Gun and 3/4 upgraded TMP and 1/2 Rifle.
Bahaha, you never played Pro mode have you? Oh boy, yeah none of your stats carry over. Hence, why it says New game. Normal and Professional are not alike and would make a silly playthrough if it allowed you to carry over your powerful guns like my Chicago Typewriter I have.
