The GameCube Was Cool

Resident Evil 4

October 21, 2021

WHAT ARE YA BUYING? One of the greatest games ever made and a watershed moment for the survival horror genre, RE4 boldly went where no Resident Evil game had gone before. Combining over the shoulder gameplay with tense action and amazing sound design it became the most accessible game in the series and one of the best games ever released for the GameCube. Part of the CAPCOM 5 (see last week's episode) Resident Evil 4 was exclusive for a very short period in 2005 before being ported to basically every console imaginable. Yet the GameCube version is still often cited as the proper way to play. Mike & Neil are joined by four guests of the show to discuss this masterpiece; Brian is back from the CAPCOM 5 episode to give his thoughts on the game and what he'd love to see improved in a future remake while newcomers Luke (Resident Evil Collector), Kira (Toonietwirls) and Tristan join the show to talk about some of their favourite memories of the game and why it still has such a huge audience 16 years later. The boys start the episode off by trying to think of great fourth instalments to a series (spoiler alert, there aren't many). Sit back and enjoy the ride, stranger.
