Retro Encounter 8-1: Parasite Eve
Note to self: operas end with people spontaneously combusting.
12.12.15 - 1:42 PM

Retro Encounter fully embraces the holidays by playing the Christmas classic Parasite Eve. Spirits are high as we do the normal holiday activates: caroling until our listeners burn to death, going on romantic walks through monster infested sewers and who could forget, all the loving phone calls to friends and family as we save our progress.

Listen as Retro Encounter goes on a merry, fiery sleigh ride.

Retro Encounter 8-1: Parasite Eve

Parasite Eve sure starts with a blast. Aya watches the people around her burn as she investigates why that opera lady has crazy eyes. Retro Encounter discusses how refreshing it is to play a strong, independent woman before talks focus on the battle system and the benefits of a cinematic RPG. We wrap up the podcast debating the pros and cons of linearity in games, which inevitably leads to talks about Final Fantasy XIII. Also, it wouldn’t be a Retro Encounter without being distracted by a Zelda game; this time it's Skyward Sword.

Featuring: Josh Curry, Caitlin Argyros, Peter Triezenberg, Chris Gebauer, Mike Salbato
