“Side Quests” #4: Resident Evil (1996) – Attack/Counterattack Pt. 1

At this point there is no really authentic way for us to say who or what to look for and guard yourself against.

Some would say that Resident Evil (1996) is one of the most influential games of all time. After six sequels, several spinoffs, a movie franchise, and two remakes, does the original still hold up? The Bizzaro Mage and I try to determine this through a civil discussion about the merits and shortcomings of the classic title.

In this episode, we talk about how The Bizzaro Mage came to join The Well-Red Mage and how he was introduced to the Resident Evil series. On whether or not Resident Evil is still a good game, we start by covering the graphics and visual style as well as the music and sound effects.

The ABXY Mage leads a double life of unfathomable hipness, if his expertise in jazz is any indication. Music maker, fandangoist, writer, you can find this hip cat as ABXY Reviews on Twitter and on YouTube.
