In the wake of the first full-on Nintendo Direct in over five hundred days, Caspius, SiliconNooB, Seb, and Imitanis survey the mountain of announcements, surprises, and disappointments on offer, including Skyward Sword HD and Project Triangle Strategy.
Caspius and SiliconNooB launch the new playthrough, discuss changing attitudes to video game narratives, and report on the latest half-witted decision by Sony: abandoning to Microsoft the Japanese market--the key to the entire video game industry!
With things heating up for the summer (or cooling down for the Australian winter), the Cricket returns alongside a gigantic upcoming game announcement from Limited Run, leaving Caspius and SiliconNooB to empty their pockets in pursuit of pre-order funds.
Nintendo has botched Paper Mario: The Origami King, there are some great games getting physical releases from Limited Run, and Devolver Digital has released the most amazing piece of marketing ever created in the news of the week!
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.
With the launch of The Day Tonight's Smash Bros. Tournament Donation Drive, the on-going Cricket World Cup, the forthcoming Ashes contest, the site-wide playthrough of Suikoden II, and the conclusion of E3, the panelists find themselves buried in news!
When SiliconNooB gives his Australiaitis to Imitanis, the podcast panel is once again reduced to two players. Lusipurr discusses the necessity of challenge in games and wider culture, whilst SN engages in some Nantucket-based poetry appreciation.
