GHX Ep 42: It Isn’t Broken

leave a comment »

Despite what it seems, this really is a video game podcast, we just like some personal tales before getting started.  Once the stories of Trees’ epic New Hammy vacation are over it’s time to talk about retro gaming collections, getting screwed over on Craigslist, the unabashed love of Kingdom Hearts, and beloved franchises that maybe no one ever really loved.

Resident Evil 2: Original vs Remake

with one comment

Fred and Jam are reunited and ready to kick off more consistent retro content, albeit this one is only half retro.  In this spoileriffic comparison podcast, the two delve into the development and content of the scrapped version of Resident Evil 2, dubbed Resident Evil 1.5 by the Internet, as well as the original full blown release.  Then they move over to comparing the quality and content in this new remake.  It’s a long ride and it’s highly recommended that you play the games first, but sit back and enjoy a horrifying trip through the Raccoon City police department and beyond.

This week there’s some random Super Bowl talk before delving into sports games, virtual reality nausea, cowboys, 3D Resident Evil 5, and wrapping up with collector’s items.  It’s a wild ride but one worth taking.
