With the spectacle of the Cricket World Cup (50-over edition) in full swing, SiliconNooB and Caspius discuss Australia’s fortunes, before Imitanis joins them to redirect discussion back to the major gaming event which is taking place at the same time: E3.
Lusipurr is unwell, so SiliconNooB takes over the duty of discussion protagonist, issuing forth sundry beer-infused opinions on the news of the week, but especially the Nintendo Direct–and, The Day Tonight’s prognostications are proved once again!
When the pictures of Adeki arrive at last, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis are horrified at what they contain. To make matters worse, Australia is triumphant in the Cricket, and the poems of Owen Meredith feature prominently. Danger, danger!
Imitanis, SiliconNooB, and Scum Thicko McGee join Lusipurr in reporting on opposite examples of game console production and video game development, before the Round Table is at last ended and the next podcast reading is announced.
Imitanis brings to the podcast a comprehensive knowledge of the many forms of biscuits; Lusipurr provides an American corollary with burgers, sausages, and pizza; and resident Aussie SiliconNooB provides the beer in this end-of-the-summer celebration.
When Nintendo makes significant portions of full-priced in-game content dependent upon access to exclusive special edition amiibo figurines, SiliconNooB boxes up his Wii U and Lusipurr breaks out the megaphone-o-ranting to lay bare Nintendo’s greed.
Capcom dusts off their classic franchises, Xbone cannot hang on to its exclusives, Nintendo goes Amiibo crazy with Twilight Princess, and Dimension W promises unlimited energy in the news of the week!
Dire portents reappear in the form of a crow with a stolen arrow in its beak, and strange happenings abound: Anime news dominates, England beat South Africa in South Africa, amiibos are weaponised against gamers, and Sony tries to copyright Let’s Plays.
Nintendo lock substantial game content to sell Amiibo, Sony attempts to trademark Let’s Plays, Square Enix turns Hitman episodic, and the jankiness of 3D anime is explained in the news of the week!
Adeki descends into madness as he complains about the exclusivity of Amiibo in the United States and goes off on a slight tangent about the most recent entry in the “Animal Crossing” franchise because it is literally madness.
