Whilst the rest of TSA was living it up at Eurogamer I had the pleasure of a visit to the London Pathology museum for a lecture on infectious diseases and parasites, courtesy of Capcom.
It sounds horrible but turned out to be really interesting, the lecturer explained how parasites take control of a host and make them perform actions against their will, much like the C-virus.
For example, we are all aware what a dog with rabies looks like – foaming at the mouth and extra angry. Rabies is spread through saliva so the virus makes the host animal produce more than normal, hence the foamy mouth.
Then it makes the host have violent urges, so in the case of the dog that would mean biting someone and with the extra foamy spit the virus improves it chances of spreading to a new host, clever eh?
After the lecture there was a chance to visit the ‘Wesker & Son Human Butchery’ and have a nibble on a hand, drink a lovely ‘puss cocktail’ or enjoy the taste of human penis. No, really, look at the pictures.
I’m sure you are disappointed you cannot sample such delicacies but I have good news, Wesker & Son is now open to the public! You can find it in Smithfields meat market and it’s open today and tomorrow.
Why not pop down for some lunchtime noms?
