Jon Remedios (SSMP) returns to the WhaleCast and joins Eric to talk about Gone Home and Beginning Hour, the new demo for Resident Evil 7 (check out our two-part play through here and here). They also discuss Jon’s complete lack of journalistic integrity and the fragmented nature of game culture and games journalism after learning of a conflict of interest in the Counter Strike: Global Offensive YouTube gambling community.
All that, plus Independence Day: Resurgence and the influence of Dungeons & Dragons in Vin Diesel’s The Last Witch Hunter.
