In the wake of the first full-on Nintendo Direct in over five hundred days, Caspius, SiliconNooB, Seb, and Imitanis survey the mountain of announcements, surprises, and disappointments on offer, including Skyward Sword HD and Project Triangle Strategy.
In the middle of a persistent frost, Caspius and SiliconNooB dig through an avalanche of news, finding therein not only the customary hibernal frigidity, but also a few optimistic reports which will warm the heart in anticipation of the vernal season.
Caspius finally completes Fire Emblem: Three Houses, ensuring that Byleth and Edelgard reign over a happy, egalitarian empire for the rest of their days. Likewise, in the video game industry, prosperity reigns--at least for those aligned with Nintendo!
Tencent continues to acquire stakes in game development companies, Gamestonks soar due to the Reddit Trade Wars, and the podcast panel concludes a playthrough, delves into CPU industry details, announces a new piano collections CD, and skims The Plop.
Microsoft makes an about-face, Nintendo is sued, and Square Enix files trademarks which look quite similar to Compilation of Final Fantasy VII titles, causing the panel to speculate whether that suggests an intention to reimagine the entire franchise.
Exposure to Final Fantasy X leaves Caspius crippled with the Brown Rain, and a quieter, more studious podcast is the result, with a thorough examination of Nintendo's total domination of the Japanese video game market, following Sony's self-destruction.
As a new decade dawns, the staff members discuss the biggest failures in video gaming since the site launch in February 2009, with many suggested candidates for the worst gaming hardware system, game developer company, and individual video game.
With 2020 finally done and dusted, the Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Seb take stock of the video game industry and the changes it has seen over the past year, including the customary awards ceremony for the worst platform, developer, and game of the year.
Caspius and SiliconNooB settle down for a winter evening's podcast, with sundry observations on select news, commentary on Christmas holiday gaming, and a stern rebuke to CERTAIN READERS who would dare to slight The Day Tonight's journalistic principles.
Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis consider Cyberpunk 2077, and take a hard-nosed look at the development of game licensing, from its origins as funding for consumer-focused quality assurance systems, to its modern incarnation as a tax on developers.
