Comprehensive reviews and analysis of the complete Resident Evil/Biohazard saga by long-time fans from the community
Episode 74: Welcome To Raccoon City Review
Finally after some delay the boys sit down to review the live-action reboot of the Resident Evil movie franchise. Writer/Director Johannes Roberts has gathered a promising cast to take us through a story that loosely combines the events of both Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2. Opinion seems divided as we discuss everything from the characterisation, the strive for authenticity, the 90's aesthetic, the creatures, and the inevitable comparisons to the Paul WS Anderson efforts. Please enjoy.

Episode 73: Resident Evil Gaiden
After years of requests and pressure from an unnamed member of the team, the Resident Evil Podcast finally brings you its coverage of the first proper handheld biohazard experience, Resident Evil Gaiden.
Released 20 years ago to the day on the Game Boy Colour, this much maligned entry has probably generated as much discussion over the years as any mainline title. Join Neptune, STARS Tyrant, Rombie and George Trevor as they provide their analysis on this 8-bit title, covering development, graphics, sound, story and of course the non-canon status Gaiden currently has.
We also have a very quick sub-discussion on Welcome to Raccoon City, a teaser of sorts before our full review coming in the new year.
A big thanks must also go to Padrex and Sofland for their remix OST!
Episode 72: Resident Evil ‘The Reports‘
This episode sees the team look back at the 20th year anniversary of the original Wesker's Report, a special limited edition DVD that originally accompanied pre-orders of Resident Evil Code Veronica X on the PS2. Narrated in universe by Albert Wesker, we discuss its lasting impact, canonicity, and the subtle updates it has received over the years as well as touching on both Wesker's Report II and Wesker's Extra Report. From there we dissect Jessica's Report, Ada's Report, and finally the Baker Report as we assess how much they add to our enjoyment of the games and how important supplemental materials are to the overall lore.
In the news discussion we look at RE4 VR on the Occulus Quest 2 and have a quick preview of the 'Welcome to Raccoon City' live action movie reboot.
Our thanks to Moni from residentevildatabase.com for the use of their DC Douglas narrated Wesker's Report 2 clips.
Episode 71 - Resident Evil Infinite Darkness Review
In the aftermath of Resident Evil Village, attention now turns to the recently released CG animated series on Netflix and the forth iteration of Leon S. Kennedy story lines that began all the way back in 2008 with Resident Evil Degeneration. Our panel breaks down the plot and the characters, looking at what ID means for Leon's evolution and his relationship with Claire in particular. We also discuss its relevance in the overall series lore and any sequel possibilities. It is our pleasure to welcome returning guest Alex Aniel, aka: CVXFreak, who enlightens us all with the current Biohazard view in Japan. Here Alex goes into detail about why Resident Evil seems to be declining in the place of its birth, despite seemingly being more popular than ever in the west. And just why does Leon Kennedy have to be in every single one of these CG adventures? Please enjoy.
Episode 70 - Interview with Antony Johnston
For this episode we are delighted to welcome special guest Antony Johnston, New York Times bestselling author and screenwriter. Antony has a number of major media projects on his resume, including Hollywood movie Atomic Blonde and video game survival horror classic Dead Space. He is also the scriptwriter for Resident Evil Village and worked very closely with Capcom Japan on the scenario design. In an engaging discussion, Antony goes into detail about how he was hired by Capcom, the writer's room process, and how crafting the storyline was very much a collaborative effort. He also explains just how much was rewritten, how many concepts were changed, and how sometimes less really is more. We also get to fire in some key community questions such as Rose's powers, the absence of Blue Umbrella, and just what is going on with that ending...
Once again our sincere thanks to Anthony for joining us. Please enjoy.
Favorite podcast about one of my favorite series
Great podcast that has years of content and always makes it enjoyable to hear about resident evil. I dropped the series after 5 came out after being a huge fan of the older games and I can say their passion for the topic convinced me to play the newer titles and frankly improved my enjoyment of titles I didn't like. Great host and cast, always excited to see a new episode drop.
You want Stars? These boys will give you Stars!
Best Resident evil podcast around! Enough said.
Terrible First Impression
Clicked on the Resident Evil Remake episode cus that was the one I’m playing right now. The recap was jokes saying “Do you like resident evil and also do you have breasts” and asking for bra sizes. If those isolating and exclusionist comments, that was said to your first female guest, was the HIGHLIGHT of your episode that you decided to keep in post-editing and wanted your audience to remember about the episode, then I’m not interested. I don’t care how much you’ve had to drink during the episode, that stuff needs to cut. I do NOT want to listen to these guys if they’re comfortable leaving that crap in and highlighting it.
