Welcome to The Lag, the podcast from New Game+ where we focus on the games too old to be new and too new to be retro.
Just as New Game+ promotes the belief that valuable discussion of games never expires, The Lag aims to carry that spirit by focusing on the old ones as much as the new ones. Alex Dewing and Olly Smith, the editors of New Game+ will act as your guides through The Lag, stopping to look at everything from RPGs to graphic adventure games.
It’s not a stretch to say that everyone has Resident Evil on their minds right now (or maybe, we should say a certain tall vampire lady); but, for this month’s episode of The Lag, we’re taking a step back to take a look at Resident Evil 7: biohazard. With the help of NME and TheGamer writer, Demi Williams, we’re looking back at the game that helped bring the franchise back to full force by placing you into the shoes of Ethan Winters on the search for his wife, leading him into some unfortunately fleshy situations.
Demi, Olly, and Alex (who was totally thrilled to be back in time for another horror game) talk about their relationships with the Resident Evil franchise, chat about all things blob monsters, and rant over how Jack refuses to die! As with all episodes of The Lag, be warned for spoilers throughout.
The Lag will be back next month with a game, if Alex can recover from their whiplash returning after one month off. If you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see us play, get in touch or leave a reply.
