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.
SiliconNooB makes a well-hydrated recovery to rejoin Imitanis and Lusipurr for a rundown of the week’s news and the site’s playthrough of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Perhaps Nintendo’s VR ‘device’ can help him catch up to the other staff!
When SiliconNooB is unable to be present for the last podcast of the year, Lusipurr uses the power of ‘Science’ and ‘Electron Microscopy’ to combine the DNA of SiliconNooB and Imitanis, resulting in a new and terrifying creation: The ImitaNooB.
When SiliconNooB claims illness so that he can embark on a cross-continent booze-up forbidden by Lusipurr, Imitanis steps into the breach, only to discover that fortune has already tailored the news for The Day Tonight’s Australian correspondant.
With the Summer Donation Drive at an end, Lusipurr and SilconNooB celebrate/commerisate about the success/failure of the site’s sixth consecutive successful/first-ever failed funding appeal. On the schedule: alcohol, and the poems of Philip Larkin.
When the Australian Cricket team and their countrymen are unmasked as a group of plotting, underhanded cheaters, SiliconNooB is suspended from The Day Tonight staff and sent on walkabout to perform didgeridoo-related community service in the outback.
Ahoy there! Lusipurr, Durga, and SiliconNooB start off the spring with a review of news from GDC 2018, including a lack of booty in Sea of Thieves, the release of an even-more-expensive HTC Vive headset, and the dampened expectations for the Atari VCS.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Reetin discuss fair play in the Olympics and the Cricket, and a lack of fair play from Nintendo when it comes to the pricing of hardware, peripherals, and even software. Perhaps the Nintendo Tax is related to the mysterious JRT!
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Adeki commiserate (or rejoice) at England’s (or Australia’s) terrible (or wonderful) performance in the Cricket, but are then buried under an avalanche of news. Only Ron’s Ron Magic can save them from asphyxiation and pumpkins.
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!
