Remakes/Reboots/Remasters

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-t3viz-11ff9ac

This week, Paul, Joey, and Ron discuss reboots/remasters/remakes, or what we like to call “revisits” or “seances.” How do we distinguish between them? What makes a “good” revisit? What are some notable examples? Will the current and upcoming classic library streaming services affect the quality or frequency of revisitations at all? We talk about all of this and more. We jump around a lot, so we don’t have specific timestamps, but we touch on Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, The Last of Us, Quake, Sony’s “Director’s Cuts,” Demon’s Souls, and more! It takes us a while to get to that discussion, though, because we really got in the weeds talking about the new Max Payne reboots, Kingdom Hearts 4, Elden Ring, and we set up an indie swap for next week’s episode! It’s a big ol’ episode but we had a lot of fun making it. Hope you enjoy!
