The B is back (it’s almost like we record several of these on the same day). But this time, Squidgey wanted to go into a lot of detail around the Resident Evil 2 board game. He was a very early backer of it on KickStarter, and had to wait over a year for it to finally materialise – but, even now, he’s super excited about the game. He received his copy (and the second copy, and the expansion packs, and the two copies of the KickStarter exclusives) before the festive period, so he’s had a fair bit of experience of playing it.
We do mention a potential canon spoiler for the Resident Evil 2 (2019). We’d recorded the episode weeks before the remake was due out
we’ve also done some Resy 2 Remake specific episodes since then, too
as such we didn’t know whether what B was about to drop was an actual spoiler or not. Turns out that it’s not, but it’s useful to be aware of.
And Squidgey drops the bomb as to how Gaiden could be canon – you’ll have to listen to the episode to find out how – but B’s rebuttal is while it might be true, canon is impossible to achieve via game play from the first game. So is it canon? Let us know whether you think that Resident Evil: Rock Band
or Resident Evil: Golf, as the Arcade Attack dudes called it
is canon or not.
As a reminder, here B’s and my recent games (from the previous episode):
