When SiliconNooB gives his Australiaitis to Imitanis, the podcast panel is once again reduced to two players. Lusipurr discusses the necessity of challenge in games and wider culture, whilst SN engages in some Nantucket-based poetry appreciation.
Sony’s PlayStation brought us epic, multi-disc RPGs, but the technical limitations of the system resulted in games that do not look as good today. Conversely, SNES titles often look very good on modern displays, leading to this resolution exploration.
A boozed-up SiliconNooB nearly comes to blows with Lusipurr over a question of the elitist interpretation of art. Meanwhile, rumours suggest Nintendo’s NX is designed to play mobile apps, Capcom learns a lesson, and Lancelot is driven to his wits’ end.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB settle down for a long winter’s evening spent discussing the Cricket and the latest artistic endeavours of the video game industry; a reading of the poetry of Donne is featured, and the Saints’ Lives of Aelfric of Eynesham!

Gamers Threw A Tantrum, Ebert Gave In We may not have gotten candy or a new toy, but after much screaming and pounding our fists on the ground, the gaming community got what it wanted: Roger Ebert shutting the hell up.
