When Resident Evil 2 was remade in 2019, raking in several awards and excellent reception for modernizing the 1998 classic that cemented the franchise’s prominence, many fans speculated that Capcom would go on to do the same with several other entries. While a separate studio handled the third entry’s remake in 2020, RE2’s developer M-Two immediately got to work on recreating Resident Evil 4.
“Backup Plan” isn’t just one of the first singles from Girl Named Tom. It also describes the path traveled by the sibling folk trio. Vocalist-guitarists Caleb Liechty, 27, Joshua Liechty, 24, and Bekah Liechty, 22, each decided to attend medical school.
It’ll be a sort of homecoming for Katharine Paul, aka Black Belt Eagle Scout, when she returns to Spokane. The singer-songwriter, who grew up an hour north of Seattle in the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community, spent considerable time throughout her childhood visiting relatives in Spokane and Colville.
I’ve written on numerous occasions about the “games as a service” model pervasive in the video gaming space in recent years. World of Warcraft largely pioneered the concept in the mid-00s, to great success – Blizzard Entertainment found they could easily hook players with the low subscription cost of $15 and keep them coming back month after month, soon netting them far more than the average $40-$60 per copy that most games were earning.
After performing in front of an enthusiastic capacity crowd at the Knitting Factory in February 2020, Alter Bridge vocalist-guitarist Myles Kennedy was thinking about the back end of his band’s ill-fated tour.
The lack of time is the only downside for Jeremy Camp’s return to Spokane. Since Camp, who will perform Sunday at the Spokane Arena, is headlining the annual Winter Jam tour, which features seven recording artists, his set is shorter than usual.
“The Hustler” is an apt title for Kelsey Cook’s initial hourlong comedy special. The Cheney High alum has been constantly on the move over the past few months. Since September, Cook has recorded her special, moved from Spokane to Minneapolis and performed throughout the country.
The final episode of HBO’s screen adaptation of “The Last of Us” aired on Sunday, and I’m pleased to report that while it wasn’t perfect, season one was excellent overall – it delivered all the necessary plot beats, compellingly recreated the franchise’s apocalyptic setting and crafted some memorable characters.
It’s not a reference to Philadelphia, Mississippi, a town of about 7,000 people northeast of Jackson. There’s not a comma missing in “Philadelphia Mississippi,” the name of G. Love & Special Sauce’s latest album. Instead, it’s referring to two influences.
Jordan Jensen is an old-school comic who lets it all hang out. The emerging New York entertainer doesn’t care who she offends. The amusing humorist is reminiscent of the late Sam Kinison and the late Mitch Hedberg since Jensen delivers the hottest of takes on relationships and pop culture.
Growing up with an Atari 2600 and Sega Genesis was a funny thing. Looking back now, it’s obvious how these machines were painfully limited by the technology of their time – but as a little kid, nothing was more wondrous to me than slaying the duck-looking, pixelated dragons in Adventure or zipping across the screen in Sonic the Hedgehog.
