Episode 6: “Let the Games Begin!”
Recorded: Saturday, November 7, 2015…
Press Start, Nerds! In this episode of ReGen: Digressions, the bitter brothers John Galope and Ilker Yücel are joined by a special guest, our friend and resident gaming guru Andy “The Frenchman” Petit. After getting past the root of Galope and Petit’s geographical gaming preferences and touching on why goth girls love Milla Jovovich, the trio discuss and digress on such gaming franchises as Fallout, Assassin’s Creed, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy, and Twisted Metal. As well, the group touches on various consoles from the old school Nintendo and MSX to the failure of the Sega Dreamcast and the rise of the Playstation 2, fighting games vs. platformers, the importance of immersion in gaming, our theories about Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima, and briefly reminiscing on terrible cinematic adaptations of video games.
