In the quarter-final of the Smash Bros. Tournament, numerous ‘shadow’ games are eliminated, much to the chagrin of SiliconNooB–but lest Caspius rejoice, some of his few remaining favourites lose out as well, leaving the outcome very much in the balance.
Caspius and SiliconNooB stage an intervention with Imitanis, the site’s premiere Fallout fanboy, using a combination of traditional JRPGs, classic pixel art, chiptunes soundtracks, and repeated whacks about the face and head with a steel-rimmed megaphone.
As England’s Ashes chances falter at Headingley, Caspius begs for a miracle in order to triumph over his Australian foe. Bup arrives, bringing news of Yazuka remasters and Overwatch competitive meta changes, leading to his swift ejection from the panel.
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.
Final Fantasy VII Remake has not been confirmed for Xbox, Monolith Soft has had a bumper year, and Dragon Quest IX devs talk about a possible remake in the news of the week!
SiliconNooB and Caspius disagree over the value of worthless, ephemerable, untransferable e-books versus beautiful, substantial, enduring hardcovers, before Imitanis reminds the panel that the disagreement is becoming murderously Russian in its tone.
Microsoft’s next gen Lockhart console has been cancelled, Famitsu has detailed some fun new Final Fantasy VII plot details, and Sega’s Toshihiro Nagoshi shows disdain for Western audiences in the news of the week!
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!
The Final Fantasy VII remake is a complete write-off and E3 took place in the news of the week!
With the spectacle of the Cricket World Cup (50-over edition) in full swing, SiliconNooB and Caspius discuss Australia’s fortunes, before Imitanis joins them to redirect discussion back to the major gaming event which is taking place at the same time: E3.
