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!
After paying tribute to some arcade memories and the best threequels ever made, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis review the hardware, software, and developer results for the previous year, and render judgement on which of each was the worst.
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.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB bid farewell to Alastair Cook and Michael Cunningham, even as Dragon Quest XI and Valkyria Chronicles 4 make their arrival in the west, and they discuss how the release of consoles and video games causes time to seem compressed.
As England begun the ritual of losing their first test of the summer, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB prepare the site staff for the difficult task of selecting the reader-chosen games which will test Lusipurr at the conclusion of the Summer Donation Drive.
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.
