Itchy Itchy Scott came. Ugly face so killed him. Tasty.









Their site.



(Just so people aren't confused by the Persona-related replies in this thread, I initially accidentally typed "Medjed" instead of "Medcare". Thanks to the mod who edited it.)

Now I'm bummed there's no medical company with that name. OP, to the gallows with you for item conversion.
Okay, fine, you get a pass. This time.

But what if you become an awesome super zombie?

The chance that you become wesker or joke is so small, that it isn't worth it.

The other children spenser had couldn't even be wesker, that was the whole plot of Revelations 2.

Damn I was preparing an entire Persona joke while the thread was opening until I read the OP.

I didn't expect that.

I should probably turn in my gamer card for asking, but this Resident Evil related?
Yep. Umbrella was a huge multi-national medical corporation that secretly experimented on viruses in huge underground labs. While trying to make enhanced soldiers (bio-organic weapons) it went a bit wrong and zombies happened. But also tyrants and all sorts of other things.

The pics on their site make it look 100% like viral marketing for a Resident Evil title though.

I don't need to be Wesker. A Tyrant, or hell, even a Licker will do.

Ignoring the plagiarization for a bit, why the heck is a medical center has a grimy-stylized logo like some kind of an entertainment company.
