Whilst SiliconNooB is away for Easter, Caspius and Imitanis discuss bonus content in remasters, and whether charging for additional DLC is good or bad for consumers. Then, the panel discusses the first confirmed details of the Sony PlayStation 5.
After calamity upon calamity is heaped upon Lusipurr, the pressure eventually becomes too great, and Imitanis and SiliconNooB are treated to the great Lusi-whinge of 2018, on topics including royal rip-offs, cardboard cupidity, and a Sony scam.
When migration day arrives and Lusipurr.com staff members become The Day Tonight reporters, not all goes to plan. The Australian semaphor is the first thing to break down, followed by a total, world-wide collapse of the Discord servers!
The advent of the Xbonex sees all extant Xboné owners relegated to second-class status. Undeterred, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, Imitanis, and Durga take up the cause of the oppressed and inveigh against unethical and exploitative business practises.
Amidst reports of news good and bad about DLC and on-disc content, RootBeerKing receives an urgent message: the marching band rehearsal has been moved from Tuesday to Monday, 19 March. Ordered to tell everyone, he complies by using 4Chan and the internet.
SiliconNooB is too drunk to attend, so Wedge drops in briefly, Blitzmage drops out briefly, and RootBeerKing stays the course in a podcast which looks at the various pitfalls associated with ‘day one’ and ‘on-disc’ DLC. Spoilers: the panel does not want.
Deimosion wonders why catching them all was–and is–so succesful, Slab Bulkhead is a trending topic, and Lusipurr is ubercharged! Also, EVE Online, Star Wars Galaxies, and City of Heroes round out an uncharacteristically MMO-centred news selection.
Slab Bulkhead names a few of the trends in video game design in the past few years, and why the blame lays at least somewhat with gamers themselves.
In this week’s episode, Biggs downloads some content, Jake 2 is released, and Lusipurr gives us a history lesson. Also, a Pokemon ban is overturned, Devil May Cry goes HD, and EA Origin cracks down on our abominable, persistent belief in property rights.
It’s not all smiles and sunshine when Lusipurr and SiliconNooB evaluate the fate of PC Gaming, the large corporate model of console game development, and the Global Activision Media Empire. And Final Fantasy XIV watch continues! Let’s see some fireworks!
