Parasite Eve won our Patreon Poll back in April, and it's finally time to talk about it, dammit. My sincere apologies for the delay. It took longer than I expected to track down a way to play this one.
But play it I did.
I love some parts of it. I don't like others. It's like Final Fantasy and Resident Evil hooked up and made a game, and it's one of the weirder games I've played over the years. I have a LOT to say about Aya and her quest to stop people from spontaneously combusting (seriously, that's the game), and it's time to talk about.
My guest this week is a RTG regular - my buddy, Tyler. He played Parasite Eve back when it was fresh. I played it 23 years later. And a lot of our thoughts lined up, which, in my opinion, means this game has aged pretty damned well. Does that mean you should play it? Listen and find out!
And before we talk about Aya and friends, it's another edition of the Remember The Game Infamous Intro!
This time around, we talk about stuff like my dream game room, great retro game box art, and why certain games we've covered on the show, like Final Fantasy VIII, are so damned divisive.
AND, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'. This time, it's the "Playstation games that I want to play but haven't" edition, featuring Dino Crisis, Tenchu, and Syphon Filter.
