Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis consider Cyberpunk 2077, and take a hard-nosed look at the development of game licensing, from its origins as funding for consumer-focused quality assurance systems, to its modern incarnation as a tax on developers.

Caspius, Durga, and SiliconNooB recap the first week of the site-wide Xenoblade Chronicles playthrough, before comparing the success of the recent Definitive Edition with other titles in the news this week, including Hideo Kojima's Death Stranding.
Caspius and SiliconNooB survey a highly litigious collection of stories in the weekly news, reveal astonshing records set by Final Fantasy VII Remake and the Nintendo Switch, and prepare for the forthcoming site-wide playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles.
SiliconNooB returns from a week-long matrimonial booze-up thoroughly disinfected with alcohol, but also losing his ability to function as a gamer, and increasingly inclined to use of 'easy mode' and 'golden feathers', much to the consternation of Caspius.

Sony has been deleting YOUR reviews, Crystal Chronicles has been delayed, and Bravely Default II has been announced in the news of the week!

As England and Australia contest the fourth Ashes Test, Nintendo releases a new Direct announcement with both broad support for classic ports and the long-predicted addition of a Super Nintendo Switch Online service, leading to Mr. Nintendo's depression.
Caspius reports on a series of one-sided World Cup 2019 matches, but Imitanis redirects discussion to his favourite game: SiliconNooB Monopoly--the most sleep-avoiding, arm-wrestling-infused, SiliconNooB-kissing property acquisition board game ever made!
