Has Resident Evil lost it's way?

After beating Resident Evil Village 4 times, it's time to discuss the game. Adam is out on vacation (aka avoids spooky games like vegetables) so Christian content creator, ReformedJedi, joins Logan on this episode to discuss the latest in the Resident Evil franchise. The game is a wild ride but it begs the question: has Village taken the RE series past the point of no return? We also discuss if the game is too violent, if there's any redemptive themes, and some of the problems the game presents.

Housekeeping (3:36)

What Have You Been Playing (4:21)

Jedi and Logan share what makes Returnal good and bad. Logan also shares if Biomutant is worth picking up.

What Have You Been Reading (14:41)

Jedi digs back in to the Symphony of Scripture: Making Sense of the Bible's Many Themes (after a few year hiatus from putting the book down). Logan gets in to Hebrews 13:7-9 as students graduate in his youth group and encourages them to remember their leaders.

Topic (21:37)

Resident Evil blazed a new trail in Resident Evil 7. Village continues this trend but also hits a few bumps in the road. Is Resident Evil Village one of the best in the series or does it flounder and stumble? Jedi and Logan also discuss if there are any redemptive uses of horror in entertainment. As always, there is a spoiler-free section of the topic and there is ample warnings before diving in to spoilers. Spoiler discussion begins at 32:53.

In a surprise turn of events, we managed to get Adam Hill (co-creator of Godspeed) on the show to discuss the behind-the-scenes of tabletop game creation. We also discuss his latest game, publishing company, and what makes tabletop games perfect for outreach.

Housekeeping (6:20)

What Have You Been Playing (7:40)

Adam teaches his son valuable life lessons in Mortal Kombat. Adam lives, dies, and repeats in Returnal. Logan braves the horrors of Resident Evil Village... 4 times.

What Have You Been Reading (35:30)

The guys discuss passages like Mark 9:14-27, Galatians 6:9-10, and Replanting.

Topic (53:00)

Adam Hill is a pastor but he is also a board game designer. Surprisingly enough, board games can be an effective tool for fostering community and reaching people where they're at. Listen in as Adam shares insights on how board games are designed, what he learned from Godspeed, his new game, and ministry.

Hot Summer Hype Nuggets, Batman!

Summer is quickly approaching as is E3. COVID forced cancellations and others to go online last year. How will that affect this summer? Join us as we discuss (and possibly prophesy) what will happen this summer in the gaming world.

Housekeeping (3:29)

What Have We Been Playing (4:59)

  • Micah puts on a tank top and races cars in Need for Speed. Adam swings for the fences in MLB The Show 21. Logan gives up on being an Avenger and gets weird with Neir Replicant.

What Have We Been Reading (25:11)

  • God's sovereign plan is a mystery and can lead to frustration. All 3 books the guys are reading detail a different aspect of that and share an encouragement for those struggling.

Topic (39:13)

  • What will happen at this year's E3? Adam hopes his Fantasy Draft will be spared, Micah gives a hot take on Mario, and Logan abandons hope for Metroid. The guys also share what delays they think will be announced and determine if E3 will come back in full swing or fizzle out into the abyss of irrelevance.
