One of the best franchises to emerge from the Wii/DS era was Trauma Center, Atlus's surgery sim franchise that featured strong writing, incredible characters, crushing difficulty, and clever use of motion and touch controls. A total of five games in the series were released between 2005 and 2010, but the series was only ever popular in North America, with the final two games, Trauma Center: Under the Knife 2 and the brilliant Trauma Team, never making it over to Europe.
The franchise is just one of the topics of discussion on today's Podtoid. Chris, CJ, Charlotte, Dan, and Occams are on hand to talk surgery bombs, delayed games, at what age we'll all be miserable, Chad Lowe flicks, and Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. All that, plus a Souls-like on iOS, on Podtoid Episode 429.
