LGR: Episode 43 - Fave Games Played in 2016 Special (Part Two)

January 17, 2017

Finally....

The Time Has Come…

Drumroll…

In this special show (the second of two instalments) the entire podcasting team get together to discuss their favourite games played in 2016. Join Mark, Cev, Lee, Andy, Stuart N, Adam, Ali and Stuart C... It’s time to see what gets the silver and the gold...

As you will know by now, valued listener, we are not a typical videogame podcast: LGR is comprised of a varied bunch of folks and game players, so expect diversity among the games featured on our lists. By our very nature we are lapsed gamers, and therefore, as with last year’s fave games played special, these games are our top games we have played over the past twelve months, not necessarily games that first came out in 2016. So both older titles and the new are represented across our lists. Plus, we hope to post our individual picks for 10 to 6 on the LGR site in the near future for your reading pleasure.

Thank you for tuning-in once again and here’s to another year of collectively keeping the hobby alive for is all. We’d love for you to get involved, so please do send us an email - lapsedgamerradio@gmail.com - about what you’re playing or not finding time to play, any feedback on our podcast or if you’d like to be on a future episode with us.

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:
