Hello and welcome to another Side-Quest episode of Talk This! It’s Dangerous to Podcast Alone! In this episode, we are very disappointed in you video game industry, go sit in a corner and think about all the things you did this past two weeks.
As always, you can listen to our podcast basically anywhere you want (including right below!). Check it out on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, or Spotify or head over to our episodes page for even more options.
The Adventures of Champ McDude have come to an end for Madelyn- it hasn’t processed for her yet, she’s probably in denial. Meanwhile, Emma continues to play Vesperia (shocker of shockers). However, she also took some time to try out the Devil May Cry 5 demo which continues to tempt her to get into the series like she doesn’t have enough games. She’s also replaying NieR: Automata- look forward to this month’s Play This! on YouTube!
We talk about whether remasters and remakes should be time capsules or aim to update themselves for a modern audience, using the controversy of Catherine: Full Body as a jumping off point with the Yakuza 3 remaster as a counterpoint. It’s not just content either but quality of life stuff. Basically, what should a remaster/remake aim to be?
We’ve got a lot of fun stuff coming up this spring! Conferences, concerts, and trips galore! We talk about everything we’re looking forward to- make sure to tell us on social media if you’ll be anywhere too, we’d love to say hello! Oh yeah, and there’s the looming specter of graduation over Emma’s head which is…something. Sure is something.
Traffic is slow, but it should pick up again soon! These past two weeks, there’s just a singular Split Screen (but a second one is coming tonight and Clickbait Boyfriend will follow soon!)
Question of the Fortnight
THQ Nordic, what were you thinking? Why did you listen to Brian? What are your thoughts on this idiotic, disgusting PR move? Let us know.
Enjoy the episode! If you want to know what we talked about on last week’s full episode, check out the blog for episode 56 here. Look forward to next week’s episode where we’re talking about Gauntlet and Frostpunk.
