On this episode of Backlog Busting Project, Wes Harrington and Randy Isbelle travel back to some scary times with a little bit of the past and present included too.
Both guys discuss playing one of the final Telltale Games that was actually an adventure title, before Walking Dead changed their style, in Back to the Future: The Game.
Randy talks about the frightening and tense atmosphere of the surprisingly good Alien Isolation. Does it do the films justice?
Wes talks playing the remaster of one of the greatest Survival Horror games ever, in Resident Evil 1. What is it like going back to play this game now? Can you still feel the same scares, jumps, and atmosphere? Did Capcom nail the remaster?
