Unaffiliated Coke returns! Also, so does Squidgey!
In his first podcast appearance since his recent super secret project, Squidgey gives us the run down of what he’s been playing recently, drops some knowledge on the Resident Evil series, discusses Tekken 2, and we touch on the recent (unfortunate) news of UK independent retailer Grainger Games closing up shop (literally).
We have a long talk about the Resident Evil series and which are our favourites. This is because the original Resident Evil turned 22 and it’s direct sequel turned 20 a few days before recording the episode.
I also come up with a few possible indy games:
Feed the Zombies
or just a Zombie Tamagochi game. Get on it, indie game developers!
A Japanese Dating Sim based on Friends
We even bring up the topic of video game movie adaptations, albiet briefly. Brief enough, in fact, to mention that if you remove everything which links them to the games, both the Super Mario Bros. and first Resident Evil movies would be pretty fun movies in their own genre. The still wouldn’t be very good, but they’d be a lot more fun.
Squidgey hits us with a theory about why Chris Redfield is unable to distinquish between two different Amerasian women in Resident Evil 6, and it’s not because Chris is racist.
I also teach you how to reference movies and video games like the folks over at IMBD.
Squidgey tells us about a time when someone gave a Guitar Hero controller a bad review because it was incompatible with a specific game, and I remind everyone that we used to play Virtua Fighter on the Sega Saturn with an “Arcade Racer Joystick”
which is the official steering wheel controller for the Saturn
We even go into what’s missing from modern Survival Horror games: fixed and tracked camera angles. They were originally used in the first Alone in the Dark and Resident Evil games because of technical limitations, but they had the side effect of increasing the survival horror-osity.
is that a word?
of the games.
We lightly cover the (then) news of UK games retailer Grainger Games closing up shop. It was a sad day for the folks who worked there, at the very least. We also touched on the prices of video games in the UK and how they can vary extremely wildly.
Here is an illustration of Sega Wrist, which we talked about when discussion Tekken and Soul Edge
And here are some photos of Squidgey’s Resident Evil Controller:
I touch on my recent visit to the NVA in Nottingham, and the games that I played whilst I was there.
