In our first-ever video game coverage, Host Bondan Syamsu (@bondansyamsu) is joined by Sei Violette (@seiviolette), his friend, perpetual buddy and Youtuber. Sei Violette is a longtime Silent Hill series fan who has played every single entry in the series, while Bondan is once again a layman trying to get into the games. The two of them discussed what makes the Silent Hill series so iconic, the recent Silent Hill projects announcements, Hideo Kojima’s PT and its influence, why the original Silent Hill 2 is a masterpiece, and why they’re both worried about the remake.

If you're reading this, don't click off the episode before the intro finishes! We just had a 3-day marathon of Hideaki Anno's 'Shin' trilogy, which includes Shin Godzilla, Shin Ultraman and finally Shin Kamen Rider on theatre! Listen to our discussion on Anno's usage of these Japanese heroes as vehicles for Japanese societal satire and how utterly deranged Anno's filmmaking is.
