That's followed by Kojima and Konami possibly reconciling to make a new Silent Hill, Bayonetta and Vanquish coming back in a package deal, a Disney remake in the works, and Death Stranding gets the "demake" treatment.
    In Stage of History, we celebrate gaming coming together with Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Robert then goes portable with the Game Boy Color title Resident Evil Gaiden during Obscura. And don't forget to grab our game code giveaways for Corporate America and ToeJam & Earl: Back in the Groove.
