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!
Two former staff members rejoin the site and take up positions as podcast panelists in a week chock-full of Square Enix news: Durga comes bearing the announcement of spiritual sequel to ActRaiser, and Brock presents the latest World of Warcraft updates.
The wretchedness of the Final Fantasy VII Remake claims yet another victim: the peace which has existed between Caspius and SiliconNooB! With the early outbreak of hostilities in an already hotly-contested Ashes Summer, will peace ever return?
Caspius reports on a series of one-sided World Cup 2019 matches, but Imitanis redirects discussion to his favourite game: SiliconNooB Monopoly–the most sleep-avoiding, arm-wrestling-infused, SiliconNooB-kissing property acquisition board game ever made!
With the release of the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, the panelists find themselves having to praise Konami. So, to ensure that the panel does not develop an addiction to being kind and generous, scorn is also heaped on hipster developers.
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?
The panel tackles the hardest of all video game topics: the best way to pick a game and stick with it until it is completed. Caspius is spoiled for choice, SiliconNooB is irredeemably distracted, and Imitanis has a worrying obsession with spreadsheets.
Whilst SiliconNooB is away for Easter, Caspius and Imitanis discuss bonus content in remasters, and whether charging for additional DLC is good or bad for consumers. Then, the panel discusses the first confirmed details of the Sony PlayStation 5.
The beginning of the County Cricket Championship heralds a veritable buffet of news and game announcements, including an unexpected PC release of Octopath Traveler, and even more ludicrous claims about Nintendo Labo VR implementation in Zelda and Mario.
