iRGN Podcast

On the iRGN Podcast #11 we are joined by our buddies at and the topics include a Paid Mods Round Table Discussion about them being put on and then pulled off Steam, Konami’s Trouble and what it could mean long-term, as well as the culture of repeat franchises putting out the same stuff over and over again or remake franchises and when to leave it alone? When is enough, enough?

    Remakes and Remasters are overdone these days. They should not make a remake of a game that was on the previous console only like 5 years ago or less. Sure, they make money off of them but they have beat this dead horse to a pulp. I understand remaking a game that hasn’t been in the public eye for a good 10 or 20 years because it would bring it attention and perhaps new life to a franchise that may not have gotten much fanfare back in the day. However, personally, I get tired of remasters that really do nothing but give the game slightly better textures and a faster framerate. At the end of the day, remakes are cool for something we have not seen in a while. However, for things we played last year, there is no need to own a second third or tenth version of the game all for the sake of graphics.
