Just picked up RE4 this weekend and am having some major problems. In two separate areas of the game the directional control gets stuck so my guy just goes in that direction until he's killed.
The first area was right after the first merchant on the bridges. When I went into the house that has the first half of the medallion on top of it it happened around 5 times in a row I was eventually able to make it out but I got killed every time it happened.
The second area is where I'm stuck now because of the problem. I just started looking for the key to the church and it started happening right by the first shack in the marsh (right after you escape from the second boulder) and it's the exact same thing the guy gets stuck going in one direction (it can be any direction by the way) until he's killed.
It's never happened anywhere else other than these two areas and has happened multiple times in both. So far here's what I've tried to fix it.
Tried 2 controllers and 2 nunckucks
rebooted, powered off, etc.
saved in 2 or 3 different save slots
exchanged the game for a new one and it is still happening
I'm wondering if the save area in my system is corrupt, if so is there a way to wipe out all of the RE4 info without messing up my other games?
I'm not even sure this is a RE4 issue so I'm hoping someone knows what's going on. Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
