I am getting ready to play Resident Evil 4 (and possibly 5). I have never played and RE game. Can someone fill me in on the story? I know the basics about who Umbrella is, but I am still a little hazy on large chunks. Who is Albert Wesker? How did the T-Virus (or the G-Virus, whichever it is) get out of Raccoon City? Why is it in Africa in RE5?
If any of these are answered in the game, please leave those to let me find out on my own. I just need a little bit of a run-down.
