Nintendo uses defective analogue sticks in their new Switch Lite console, PS5 Pro rumoured to launch alongside the base console, and Anthem is dead as a door nail in the news of the week!
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.
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.
This week TDT presents the PS5 information blow-out!
In the wake of yet another disastrous performance by the England Cricket team, Lusipurr eschews conversation about sport, retreating instead to the traditional bastion of all those who are disinclined to physical activity: the video game arcade.
Lusipurr is joined by Imitanis and SiliconNooB, resulting in an international panel of video game experts, to discuss Sony’s decision to avoid E3 in 2019, the future announcement and release of the PlayStation 5, and the value of Nintendo Switch Online.
Nintendo wins twelve million dollars in damages from a couple of ROM archivists, Sony’s Playstation Classic uses PCSX to emulate the games, and Sony’s absence for E3 2019 says a lot about their PS5 plans in the news of the week!
SiliconNooB is over-the-moon when news breaks that Golden Axe will be receiving a long-awaited theatrical production, but Lusipurr is less optimistic about the likelihood of such a production being well-received, well-attended, or even well-made.
