Power Button - Episode 156: Reboot Camp
December 01, 2014
Sometimes when a video game franchises buckles under the weight of its own convoluted lore or when sales start to drop off, there's only one thing for the publisher to do: reboot it! Give the series a clean slate and start over with a bold new direction. We've seen it happen to Tomb Raider, we've seen it done with Castlevania, even Donkey Kong once had a fresh start. On this episode of Power Button, Blake Grundman and I are joined once again by David Oxford to discuss video game franchises that need a reboot. We kick around new ideas for Sonic the Hedgehog, Blast Corps, Mega Man, Star Fox, and many more. What could possibly go wrong?
