This week VGP is all over the place talking about everything from retro accessories to the people of Wal-Mart.  Trees continues to play Far Cry Primal and he gives Trine 4 a go.  Fred played through Until Dawn again and struggled to find the fun in Obscure and Siren so he returned to MediEvil to enjoy the PS4 remaster.

It’s time for all smiles at the trampoline park and the reality that the days of the theater are truly numbered as Fred waivers on the concept of going to the movies.  Trees has been diving into Far Cry Primal and is enjoying himself thoroughly.  Fred played some bite-sized experiences from Sega’s 60th Anniversary collection, cleared Tacoma on his day off, tested After Party and finally completed The Evil Within 2.

This week there’s a lot of random talk about birthdays, Atari Jaguar’s library, and Fred “$10,000 week” splurge.  Once they finally get down to games Trees gave a shot to Metal Wolf Chaos XD, went deeper into Genshin Impact, and returned to Jurassic World Evolution.  Fred on the other hand is keeping with horror as he struggles through The Evil Within 2, realizes some retro classics don’t hold up with The 7th Guest, and finds surprising fun with Slayaway Camp: Butcher’s Cut.  It all wraps with a much appreciated listener mail.

Video Game Purists Ep 36: Don’t Try New Things

This week Trees is off to the casino while Fred is off to the movies in two action packed stories.  The conversation then shifts to games where Trees tested out Greedfall and A Night in the Woods while Fred enjoyed a co-op night of Resident Evil 5 and started The Evil Within 2.  This all is wrapped in a tribute to the late, great, Eddie Van Halen.

Video Game Purists Ep 35: School of Pig Fish

This week Trees is going to HOA meetings while Fred is reading comics and watching bad horror movies like Midsommar.  Gaming talks a bit about twitter before Trees expands on yet more time with No Man’s Sky, but also Sega Marine Fishing, and the newly released (and very popular) Genshin Impact.  Fred is going mostly horror but manages to wrap Jak and Daxter before delving into the headache of the end of Resident Evil: Code Veronica, giving Condemned 2: Bloodshot a second chance after more than a decade, and big dumb fun with House of the Dead III.
