Episode 60 - Resident Evil 3 (Remake) Part 1

Arriving hot on the heels of Remake 2 some 15 months later, Resident Evil 3 Remake is finally here to complete the re-imagined Raccoon City storyline. Our panel sit down to analyse the game from top to bottom, discussing the character interpretations, story changes, gameplay features and everything else inbetween. As the original RE3 is held in such high-esteem by our team, it sometimes proves difficult to embrace just how far the changes went with this one, particularly in the second half of the game. But that being said there are still plenty of positives to take away including a superb modernisation of Jill Valentine and some impressive creature design. Other highlights include an analysis of the Nemesis and how he is depicted compared to the original and how new additions such as the Dr. Bard sub-plot added to the overall storyline. Please enjoy.

Episode 59 - Remake 3 Final Preview

With less than three weeks to go before Remake 3 is released, the REP team sit down to ponder their final thoughts, hopes and fears for the upcoming game. News discussion celebrates our own little personal milestone with the launch of residentevilpodcast.com; a culmination of months of work and hopefully a nice little surprise for everyone. Although recorded before the playable demo was made available, we discuss the new mechanics for Remake 3, including the dodge move and the rumoured 'fast-travel' system. We also talk about how the Raccoon City streets are looking, how the Outbreak games will be taken into account, and of course all the revealed enemies and the Nemesis itself. Finally in the quiz, George Trevor provides the entertainment as usual.

Episode 58 - Happy Birthday Resident Evil Code Veronica

Our latest episode has the team enjoy a 20th birthday party for Resident Evil Code Veronica which originally launched exclusively on the Sega Dreamcast way back in 2000. To celebrate this glorious milestone we embark on a retrospective playthrough of the full game. We played various versions but in typical REP fashion none of us actually touched the Dreamcast original! We discuss how the game has aged and debate the best tips and tactics for a successful playthrough. We also debate various plot aspects and touch on the development history. What is the most powerful weapon in the game? Is the Hunter II the most feared B.O.W. ever? Did Chris drop his packed lunch or his Samurai Edge when his bag fell off the cliff? These are just some of the burning questions pondered as Neptune, Batman, Rombie, STARS Tyrant and George Trevor take an ill-fated trip all the way back to Rockfort Island and beyond...

Episode 57 - Resident Evil 3 Remake Reveal and Biohazard VR

It's the Podcast Christmas special! Following the highly successful Resident Evil 2 Remake it was surely only a matter of time before the final game in the PSX trilogy received the remake treatment. Revealed courtesy of brand new trailer, the team examine the details and discuss their hopes and expectations for the game and its incorporation with Project: Resistance. We are also joined once again by friend of the show, TheSelfishGene as he gives us an exclusive run-through of both Biohazard Valiant Raid and Biohazard 7: Walkthough the Fear - two virtual reality experiences only running in Japan. Also in this final episode of Season 5, we must also crown the season victor in a festive edition of Neptune's Biohazard Quiz!

Episode 56 - Happy Birthday Resident Evil 3

Welcome to our tribute to Resident Evil 3: Nemesis, the finale of the original PlayStation trilogy which now celebrates its 20th birthday! The PUP team are all huge fans of this game and recording was a lot of fun and brought back many wonderful memories. Each member played a particular version, including the amazing seamless fan HD project, and once again ventured into Raccoon City alongside Jill Valentine, Carlos Oliveria and friends. We look at how the game has aged, the differing routes you can take, the item/enemy randomization, and of course all the different live selection choices. In the shadow of the inevitable Remake 3, it was nice to return to Raccoon in its original guise and of course old Nemesis himself proved to be just as deadly as ever. We all enjoyed this journey and even discovered brand new things we hadn't seen before, leading to a podcast far longer than originally anticipated. Join Neptune, Batman, Ty, Rob and George Trevor and celebrate the anniversary of this truly wonderful game.

Episode 55 - Resident Evil Project Resistance Reveal

The team sit down to assess release reaction to the Project Resistance announcement. STARS_TyranT and Rombie were also chosen to take part in the closed beta, showcasing one level of the game with playable options for both 'survivor' and 'mastermind'. We look at the format, the Outbreak connection and how it compares to previous spin-offs. Cautious optimism seems to be the general consensus of opinion at this stage, despite Neptune and George Trevor admitting this really isn't their type of Resident Evil game. We discuss the pros and cons so far and whether is has a place in the larger canon. And thank the world for Daniel Fabron's extraordinary accent and dialogue. Bonjour.

Episode 54 - Resident Evil Gun Survivor Retrospective

Following on from our popular RE1 and RE2 playthroughs, the team now turn their attention to the original Gun Survivor. Released in 2000, this much maligned and often forgotten about gem is now nothing but a memory for long time fans and the newer generations probably have never played it at all. The game remains unavailable to purchase digitally and physical copies are a rarity these days. The reason for doing a playthrough of this game was twofold. One is quite simply because we all have a fondness for it, but secondly and perhaps most importantly, we realise a significant portion of the current fan base will never have any intention of playing this game, thanks to its lackluster reception and shocking production values. Therefore, join Neptune, Batman, STARS Tyrant and Rombie as they guide you through the game from start to finish, exploring every possible route and analyzing the story and gameplay as they go. Who needs Blue Umbrella, Chris Redfield or Leon Kennedy when you have Ark Thompson, Vincent Goldman and er... Vincent's mother??
