Exposure to Final Fantasy X leaves Caspius crippled with the Brown Rain, and a quieter, more studious podcast is the result, with a thorough examination of Nintendo's total domination of the Japanese video game market, following Sony's self-destruction.
As a new decade dawns, the staff members discuss the biggest failures in video gaming since the site launch in February 2009, with many suggested candidates for the worst gaming hardware system, game developer company, and individual video game.
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.
As the Earthbound playthrough launches, Imitanis and SiliconNooB join Caspius to lament that Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Remastered has been Disastered, with software-based region-locking and multiplayer restrictions designed to prevent imports.
With the Xenoblade Chronicles playthrough about to enter its second month, Caspius reaches the fifty-hour mark whilst SiliconNooB reaches the zero-hour mark--and, with a bevy of new games announced to distract the Australian, will he ever begin the game?
