Comprehensive reviews and analysis of the complete Resident Evil/Biohazard saga by long-time fans from the community
REP Presents: The Be6inner's Guide to Bioha7ard
Welcome to our celebratory episode for the 25th anniversary of Resident Evil/Biohazard. For our 67th episode, we have listened to audience requests and produced a show aimed at newcomers to the series. If you are looking forward to Village but are perhaps not too overly familiar with the rest of the series then we have you covered! Join Neptune, BatMan, Rombie, and STARS_TyranT as they guide you through each and every game/movie/story in the series as we list our top 10(ish) essential RE titles to enhance your village experience. Please enjoy.
Episode 66 - Resident Evil 4 Retrospective
Our latest episode sees the whole REP team take a look back on perhaps the most controversial game in the entire series, Shinji Mikami's Resident Evil 4. We all know the legends behind its development, with the various builds including Hookman, 'Stylish', and and what should have been the cradle of the Progenitor Virus. But instead we ended up with a rural setting, no zombies, and an Umbrella that had been destroyed off screen. It is certainly a game that split the community down the middle and our team look back with mixed opinions, some more positive than others, but we all collectively agree that Resident Evil 4 is probably one of the most important titles in the franchise. The main discussion is supplemented with community call-ins and readings from the 'Biohazard 4 novella' by Benny Matsuyama taken from the Biohazard 4 Kaitai Shinsho.
News discussion is dominated by Capcom's recent showcase in which they debuted a new Village trailer, the first ever official gameplay, and a welcome surprise with the Maiden demo which STARS_TyranT has been busy exploring.
REP Presents: The Outtakes 2
Today, we have hit another milestone as we pass 200,000 downloads of the Resident Evil Podcast. It was not long ago that we passed the 100k mark and celebrated with a bonus outtakes podcast.
Keeping with that tradition, we now release for your listening pleasure another collection of unused material, bloopers, interruptions and other scraps from the cutting room floor.
Amazed that after 9 years such bloopers continue to occur? Well, don't be - saying goodbye in the right order continues to be a problem!
So, sit back and enjoy some of the bits from Episode 55 onwards that you haven't heard! Without your ongoing support, we never would have reached this milestone, so thank you everyone!
REP Presents: A Requiem for Raccoon City
Welcome to a special episode showcasing the chronology of Raccoon City's downfall using the new lore introduced in the remakes of both Resident Evil 2 and 3. What started off as an idea for a small skit to accompany our last episode bloomed into something much bigger thanks to many members of the RE fan community getting involved and helping us out. As a bit of fun, we've taken selected files from both remakes and compiled them together in rough chronological order so people can experience an alternate version of how the events leading up to to the biohazard in Raccoon City went down. A massive thanks to everyone who participated and as always, please enjoy.
Episode 65 - Resident Evil 3 (Remake) Part 3: The Canonical Issue
Rounding off our trilogy of episodes focusing on Resident Evil 3 Remake, the team assembles to discuss the always controversial issue of canon and where this shiny, pretty new game stands in comparison to its much-loved original. Whereas Remake 2 more of less played it safe when it came to introducing major new elements, Remake 3 certainly wasn't afraid of introducing new lore and pushing the boundaries further than ever before. We discuss the important distinction between canon and continuity and what Capcom are achieving by simultaneously loading the game with Outbreak references yet making changes that retcon the events of those games out of existence. We also analyse new elements such as Dr Bard and the vaccine, the changes to Nemesis itself, and whether the advent of these remakes makes us question whether the concept of canon is more important than ever, or not at all... Finally we briefly touch on what these Raccoon City remakes mean for the future of the series. Please enjoy.
Episode 64 - He's a CVXFreak!
In this special episode, we warmly welcome RE super fan - Alex Aniel aka CVXFreak author to the Resident Evil Podcast. Residing in Japan, CVXFreak is the author of the upcoming, crowdfunded Itchy Tasty - A History of Resident Evil book.
In what promises to be a fascinating insight into the development of the early Biohazard games, we sit down with Alex to discuss how he was able to get so close to the key developers and translate that into one of the most hotly anticipated fan books.
We also take a look at all the news coming out from Tokyo Games Show including Resident Evil Village and the announcement of new CGI series, Infinite Darkness. Please enjoy.
Best RE podcast
Spent a couple of months listening to every single episode these guys have done (apart from the movie ones) . TheBatMan’s knowledge combined with a passion of the series from Neptune, Stars Tyrant, George Trevor, Rombie and Mr Spencer makes for a must listen for all Resident Evil fans!

Fever gone but itchy. Hungry and eat dog food. Itchy itchy Scott came. Ugly face so killed him. Tasty.

Quite simply my favourite podcast on the internet. I frequent quite a few podcasts and I’ve yet to come across a more informative and knowledgable bunch of lads than the gentlemen at REP.
The refreshing honesty about the series in general is honestly their best gift. I’m sick of the sight of the likes of the SphereHunter complimenting the series just to stay on the good side of the majority. These lads tell it how it is & I respect that.
Thanks lads and keep up the good work.
