The dynamic duo also dives into the shocking leak of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, two whole weeks ahead of schedule, and laments the sad state of affairs for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor’s launch performance issues.
Hold onto your controllers, because they also venture into the fantastical realm of AI-enhanced gaming, revealing a mind-blowing Skyrim mod that combines ChatGPT and other generative AI’s to spawn NPCs with jaw-dropping conversational prowess. And for the pièce de résistance, David and Mike dissect the much-buzzed-about Super Mario Bros. Movie by Illumination, dishing out their hot cakes and showcasing feedback from the SBFVGS community. Join this gaming sleepover extravaganza for laughs, insights, and a sprinkle of movie magic!
Mike and David take the reins in Episode 188 of SBFVGS, diving headfirst into the world of survival horror as they discuss Mike’s recent playthroughs of the 2019 remake of Resident Evil 2 and the freshly-released 2023 remake of Resident Evil 4. As they share their thoughts on both games, David recounts his own adventure in Metroid Prime Remastered, experiencing the classic for the first time.
In a somewhat heavier twist, the duo addresses the recent social media harassment of Ada Wong’s new voice actor in the Resident Evil 4 remake. But fear not, they keep the atmosphere light-hearted while attempting to dissect the reasons behind the online meanness. Join Mike and David for a friendly sleepover packed with gaming talk, camaraderie, and a surprising amount of spooky games chatter that’s sure to send a shiver down your spine.
Mike and David gather once again to discuss the latest goings-on in gaming, like: the video-game-to-movie-or-tv-show boom that draweth nigh, that apparently only the PS5 can handle Final Fantasy 16, and how fantastic Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil 4 looks in a thong for his age! They also discuss the odd phenomenon of growing up feeling one way about a game, and then having a moment where that feeling changes, either for better or for worse! Also David does some bad impressions of Solid Snake, Colonel Campbell, General Pepper, and Don Pardo!
Mike Lopez and David J. Tate sit down with newly-annointed Super Best Friend Casey Lawrence (aka Ultimakillz) to discuss Hogwarts Legacy and the PC port of The Legend Of Zelda – A Link To The Past. They also talk about the positives and negatives about Nintendo’s approach to the “Virtual Console” on the Switch, and which model the prefer. And, as usual, many laughs are had by all (including by you)!
SBFVGS is back, baby! In this episode, Mike and David discuss the pros and cons of letting oneself get hyped beyond all reason vs letting yourself stay calm, cool, and collected and being pleasantly surprised when a game releases and is a certified hit! We also discuss the recent resurgence of folks in our community playing Hades, along with the shocking, sudden release of Hi-Fi Rush, Mario + Rabbids Sparks of Hope, and Signalis!
Adam Redding, Mike Lopez and David Tate cozy up to the polygonal fire to celebrate a surprise, mid-hiatus SBFVGS Christmas episode, featuring our 2021 Game of the Year, Game giveaways and the annual Dueling of the Arnies.
