You know... being from a poor, Eastern European family that can't afford doctors, and then becoming a child soldier, and then a mercenary killing machine...

I can understand learning to play something small and portable, but a piano.. at that kind of competency... is kinda stretching it...

oh, yeah... pointless nitpick.w/e


interesting... :P

What I can't understand is how the hell does he have a NY/Long Island accent?

His mom was in a deathbed for a good amount of time so he probably learned to play just to comfort her. That's not a stretch at all since he decided to become a merc to pay for her medical needs (attesting to how much his love is, for his mom). Piano is one of the least expensive forms of entertainment. His accent is a stretch for his character though.

Also, his mom was obsessed with Wesker. So she probably raised him up to be a smarty pants; and learning the piano at a young age is definitely on the agenda (just ask any parent with "high expectations" for their kid, I guarantee you they would have raised their kid on some form of instrument)

That bit was my favourite in the whole of Jake's campaign, the contrast between what Jake plays and what Sherry plays was nicely done and a good reference to RE to boot.

Question: What was Jake playing? Does anyone know what piece of music this is?

Billy can play the piano too, in RE0.

I guess "mysterious wanted men" in the RE universe have a talent for music or something.

There is no such thing as a "Quick Time Event done right".
A game that has Quick Time Events is a "video game done wrong".

The ability to play the piano was passed on to him through Wesker's genes just like his fighting moves. That's just how genes work in RE.

P.S. Of course Wesker plays piano.

Fun fact: Jakes Voice Actor was also Snows from Final Fantasy 13 and 13-2.
