With the end of the year approaching, the rush is on for developers to delay their incomplete games and abandon their unrealisable projects, with mentions this week for Bravely Default II, Cyberpunk 2077, Far Cry 6, Halo Infinite, Everwild, and Diablo IV.
Caspius and SiliconNooB review the latest updates from the site-wide Earthbound playthrough, details of the forthcoming release of the Pokemon Crown Tundra expansion, and the astounding and continued success of the Nintendo Switch hardware and software.
Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis discuss the history of site-wide playthroughs, and try to decide whether to play a game that is available on current systems (Breath of Fire!) or a game which is available only on older consoles (Earthbound!).
SiliconNooB is afflicted with Shadow Madness, rendering him unable to appreciate video games unless they contain the word 'shadow' in the title. Look forward to his future reviews of Shadow of the Colossus, Shadowrun, and Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.
The gloves are finally off when Caspius and SiliconNooB discover Nintendo's lackadaisical celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Mother series: no localisation, no re-release, no port, but rather a weekend spirit event for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Caspius and SiliconNooB tackle a huge pile of Nintendo-related news, including the announcement of the Switch Lite, the revelation of Earthbound Gamecube, and forthcoming updates to the continually increasing disappointment that is Nintendo Switch Online.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB round out the end of the site-wide Dragon Quest XI playthrough and bid farewell to Reetin, before holding forth on the many releases and sundry changes made to Castlevania: Rondo of Blood and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night.
Lusipurr is joined by special guest Sabin in a one-on-one discussion about website design, Zestria, and the very best Metroidvania games of the current generation.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB enthuse about the latest release in the SaGa franchise--Octopath Traveller--with its polished and innovative design that sits neatly alongside SquareSoft masterpieces of the SNES era. But then Lusipurr opines about Undertale.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB return from the future (which is now the past) to discuss the news of the present (which is both the past and the future)--but they almost come to blows over a disagreement about whether Shin Megami Tensei is good (or not).
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.
