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?
After an inexplicable technical mishap results in the podcast disappearing, Caspius, Imitanis, and Ethos record anew, presenting their thoughts on the surplus of supbar software available on Nintendo eShop, before delving into the Final Fantasy Remake.
Games have been released, games have been announced, and games are being streamed on Switches 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.
The advent of a games-filled spring season means Caspius and SiliconNooB can report on the release dates for many new games. And, a shocking trailer for a hedgehog-based film leaves SiliconNooB averse to cinema as a medium. Can he be cured?
On Australia Day, SiliconNooB is boozed-up and ready for a fight when Lusipurr downplays the alleged horribleness of the Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana translation. But the two panelists find common ground over the issue of video game collector's editions.
Imitanis, SiliconNooB, and Lusipurr discuss the latest news from the ongoing Activision, Blizzard, and Bungie kerfuffle, including a possible class-action lawsuit. Then, the panel fuses Final Fantasy XV characters together into new and terrible forms!
