The Weekly Stuff Podcast #376 – Resident Evil Village & Yakuza: Like a Dragon Spoiler Reviews
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
This week’s super-sized podcast offers two in-depth video game reviews for the price of one, as we break down this month’s outstanding Resident Evil Village and last year’s Yakuza: Like a Dragon – which we’ve both finally finished! – in long spoiler-filled discussions. A fantastic balance of the terrifying and the silly, Resident Evil Village hits the absolute perfect sweet spot for both of us when it comes to this series, and is a total joy to discuss in this format, given how many surprises are hiding around every corner of this extraordinary game. And while Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a very different game, it’s no less fun to talk about, with its rich narrative and wonderful characters, and makes for an especially fun conversation as we’re coming at the series from two different directions – Jonathan as a franchise newbie, and Sean a grizzled Yakuza veteran. Before the reviews, Sean also talks about reading the Kimetsu no Yaiba manga, while Jonathan reviews gaming journalist Jason Schreier’s new book Press Reset, before talking about his very belated playthrough of the excellent Titanfall 2 campaign.
