Caspius, Durga, and SiliconNooB discuss Microsoft’s pivot to mediocrity and plans to compete with Google Stadia and the Apple iOS store instead of Sony and Nintendo, before moving on to discuss Fire Emblem as a successor to beloved, dead JRPG franchises.
Caspius and SiliconNooB discuss Capcom’s intention of reviving dormant franchises, and SN tries to allay Caspius’ fears with news of Konami ‘reviving’ Silent Hill for pachislot machines and Sony ‘reviving’ Wild Arms for an abysmal mobile sequel.
This week’s Nintendo Direct had something for everyone, with announcements for Dragon Quest XI goodies, the surprise release of Tetris 99 and Final Fantasy IX, and the announcements of Super Mario Maker 2, Link’s Awakening, Oninaki, and Astral Chain!
Lusipurr is unwell, so SiliconNooB takes over the duty of discussion protagonist, issuing forth sundry beer-infused opinions on the news of the week, but especially the Nintendo Direct–and, The Day Tonight’s prognostications are proved once again!
SiliconNooB is pleased to report that the PlayStation 3 has finally outstripped the XBox 360 in terms of total hardware units shipped, Lusipurr exults in the announcement of a new Pokemon generation for the 3DS, and Ignatius Reilly sells all his hot dogs.
The panel explores the week’s releases, including 3D Dot Game Heroes and… well, nothing else. There’s also Final Fantasy X to discuss–but a far more important matter intervenes: the TIMELY arrival of Lusipurr’s new wall clock. Get it? Ha! Ha!
