Ethos focuses on Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix and Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call in this week’s Editorial Miscellany, and he has very mixed feelings about both of them. Mix it up with him by reading up!
Double Fine disapproves of Steam sales, EA apologises for mocking the Wii U, and the sales of Final Fantasy X/X-2 surpass Lightning Returns in the news of the week!
Amazon is rumoured to be interested in acquiring Xbox, the Candy Crush patent trolling continues apace, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII sees release in the west in the news of the week!
Ethos fell flat on his butt the morning he wrote this article. He does not mention this fact once, but the knowledge shines an important light on the tone and content of this week’s flaccid edition of Editorial Miscellany.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel settle down for a long winter nap all snug in their beds, until visions of Blitzmage invade their heads. And as if this were not enough, Ethos arrives by proxy, wearing leather pants, no shirt, and a hair-do from the 1980s!
Thanksgiving and Black Friday arrive in the United States, promping all podcasts to go off the air, and allowing vacation time for website staff members. But SiliconNooB is Australian and Lusipurr is hateful, and hence The Starlight Megaphone goes on!
Lightning Returns and Mario 3D World experience dismal sales in their domestic market, the Xbone hobbles out of the post-launch gate, and Atlus is given free reign over Sega’s dormant IP in the news of the week!
The Legendary Zoltan demonstrates that he is MIDI-capable with Chrono Trigger, SiliconNooB brings a wealth of facts and information to bear upon the Xbone, and, in a stunning reversal, Lusipurr plays all of the games that he has not played until now!
When SiliconNooB and Blitzmage bristle at the idea of paying moderate taxes that will provide for the conservation of historical sites, Lusipurr is forced to explain the value of preserving classical heritage–a principle in which he leads by example.
In an effort to demonstrate his lecturing capability, Lusipurr tells Blitzmage and SiliconNooB a story. Then, after they awaken, Final Fantasy XIII news dominates the panel’s time. Buoyed by this, the participants finally avoid a series of lengthy rants.
