LGR 2016: Episode 36 - Resident Evil 4

October 31, 2016

Welcome listeners to our second horror themed special for Halloween, hot on the hellish heels of our Ballyhoo! SILENT HILL movie double-bill. Today it’s another entry in our Playlist series where the team play-through an older game and give our thoughts and feelings about it. On this episode Andy, Mark, Adam & Stuart fend off zombies and rescue Ashley in the critically acclaimed RESIDENT EVIL 4.


RESIDENT EVIL 4, known in Japan as ‘Biohazard 4’, is a survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. The sixth major installment in the ‘Resident Evil’ series, the game was originally released for the GameCube in North America and Japan in January 2005, and in Europe and Australia in March 2005. The story of RESIDENT EVIL 4 follows the U.S. government special agent Leon S. Kennedy, who is sent on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the U.S. President's daughter who has been kidnapped by a sinister cult. Traveling to a rural area of Spain, Leon fights hordes of violent villagers and reunites with the mysterious spy Ada Wong.


WARNING: In case you’ve not yet played this game please be aware that spoilers abound as we traverse the numerous settings within the game and talk about the story-line as it unfolds.


During our discussions we reference a couple of YouTube videos and links for these are as below:

LGR 2016: Episode 35 - Ballyhoo! Silent Hill and Silent Hill: Revelation

October 28, 2016

Welcome listeners to another instalment of Ballyhoo! Our spin-off series where we look at other forms of media connected to gaming properties. In celebration of Halloween we’re talking horror movies, so join Cev, Lee, Andy and community guest Nick @Laneit360 Jones as they visit the eerie town of Silent Hill as envisaged by filmmakers Christophe Gans (SILENT HILL, 2006) and Michael J. Bassett (SILENT HILL: REVELATION, 2012).


With the continuous shouts of “Sharon!” still ringing in our ears, what will we make of these silver screen adaptations of Konami’s famous survival horror franchise? Can we fathom the mystery of the desolate fog/hellish nightmare cycle which grips Silent Hill? We certainly couldn’t comprehend Sean Bean’s American accent. Precisely what is going on with Sharon/Heather/Alessa now all grown-up and the star? Hang on a second, isn’t that Jon Snow? All this and more as we review SILENT HILL and SILENT HILL: REVELATION. Happy Halloween!


WARNING: In case you’ve not yet had the (mis)pleasure of watching these movies for yourself, please beware spoilers abound as we revel in their oneiric haze and on occasion lose ourselves in the thick mist of their absence of logic.

October 2, 2016

After a fun weekend at EGX Mark, Ali, Cev and the Stuarts run through the games they played and discuss their highlights, their lowlights, their beverage consumption and their thoughts on VR as a platform and the very noticeable absence of some major players in the games industry.
