ARGcast #82: Looking back on the Resident Evil / Biohazard Franchise
Before we get to the frights, we have a horde of news that would make a gang of zombies blush! First is the news that Dead Space developer Visceral Games is shut down after working on their Star Wars title for 4 years. That’s followed by what could possibly be an SNES Classic killer, tiny arcades done right, a point and click adventure collection worth owning, Star Ocean making the splash to PC, and finally the return of egg-shaped babysitting with Tamagotchi celebrating its 20th anniversary.
The Stage of History sets the tone with jurassic jump scares in Dino Crisis, as well as Leon Kennedy’s epic return in Resident Evil 4. Robert then redirects us down to the pits of hell in Obscura with a look at Dante’s Inferno. Stay tuned for an idea how a pinball RPG works as David interviews the developer of Pinball Invaders. Finally there’s our game giveaways, so snatch them up before Wesker does!
