For the first official episode of Gaming History X, Fred is joined by co-host Trees to introduce the concept of the show. It eventually devolves into discussions about the legacy of the aged console gamer and of course Fred can’t shut up about Resident Evil 7.

Our GHX theme was originally created by Ozzed as DeDeDe Metal Remix and then remixed into the theme by Fred Rojas with permission.  You can find all of Ozzed chiptunes at ozzed.net.

Closing theme is Go Tell Aunt Rhody from the Resident Evil 7 official soundtrack.

It’s finally time to discuss the Gamecube title Fred didn’t even know existed.  The first of the “Capcom Five” titles, what starts off looking like a traditional third-person action shooter ends up being a bit lighter on content and much heavier on replayability.  With Jam on haitus, Fred is joined by special guest Strip Mahjong and they delve deep into the development, gameplay, and campaign.

klonoa_post

This week Fred and Jam discuss the action platformer Klonoa: Door to Phantomile.  Released by Namco in 1998, this was really a 2D side-scrolling title releasing when the industry had moved to 3D, but that doesn’t hinder its ability to be a fun and enchanting experience.  As always, our hosts (along with chat) delve into the development, concepts, and gameplay.
