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.
With several stars already awarded in the autumn-winter playthrough-revisit, Imitanis and SiliconNooB join Caspius in discussing Square Enix's response to last week's podcast: more SaGa games coming to the Switch, and even some Xenogears news!
SiliconNooB makes merry, and then some, before joining Caspius in a considerable state of inebriation. The news is examined in due course, followed by the knock-out round of the Smash Bros. Tournament, without any sign of SiliconNooB's unnamed 'thingy'.
The arrival of the Tokyo Game Show brings a veritable deluge of video game news, including a bevy of console release dates and the debut of a new Final Fantasy VII remake trailer and demo--and, in a much-demanded addition, the inclusion of a Classic mode!
The Ashes continues and Caspius is plunged ever further into despair by the underwhelming performance of England, but with Gamescom on the horizon, the prospect of new video game news lifts his flagging spirits--and even Nintendo is trying to help!
With the launch of The Day Tonight's Smash Bros. Tournament Donation Drive, the on-going Cricket World Cup, the forthcoming Ashes contest, the site-wide playthrough of Suikoden II, and the conclusion of E3, the panelists find themselves buried in news!
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB discuss the announcement of further Wii U titles for the Nintendo Switch, the latest twist in the Crytek vs. Cloud Imperium saga, the launch of free Ni No Kuni 2 DLC, and both normal and Australian ways to deal with Game Fatigue.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB enthuse about the latest release in the SaGa franchise--Octopath Traveller--with its polished and innovative design that sits neatly alongside SquareSoft masterpieces of the SNES era. But then Lusipurr opines about Undertale.
Deimosion goes to Hell and back; Biggs gets Healthy Wellness; and Lusipurr bakes a patty. Also: Konami brings Despair to the PlayStation Network, Valve announces an early release, Square Enix takes up the rhythm genre, and this LBP are sack.
