Nintendo Switch eclipses the launch of PS5 and Series X, The Playstation brand is pretty much dead in Japan, and Microsoft attempted to buy Nintendo and Squaresoft in the news of the week!
Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis beseech listeners for iTunes-review contest entries, read the latest updates from the site-wide Earthbound playthrough, review the latest information about Sony and Microsoft acquisitions, and moan about The Plop.
As the site bids farewell to the Xenoblade Chronicles playthrough, Earthbound is on the horizon: Caspius and SiliconNooB discuss the latest XBox series X leaks, including a release date, before delving into the latest Switch-boosted sales figures.
Caspius, Durga, and SiliconNooB discuss Microsoft's pivot to mediocrity and plans to compete with Google Stadia and the Apple iOS store instead of Sony and Nintendo, before moving on to discuss Fire Emblem as a successor to beloved, dead JRPG franchises.
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.
The Final Fantasy VII remake is a complete write-off and E3 took place in the news of the week!
