Caspius and SiliconNooB survey a highly litigious collection of stories in the weekly news, reveal astonshing records set by Final Fantasy VII Remake and the Nintendo Switch, and prepare for the forthcoming site-wide playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles.
After Caspius reviews Final Fantasy VII Remake, Imitanis and SiliconNooB discuss the future of the series, including the likely outcome for both the battle system and overworld in Final Fantasy VII Remake-2 and Sephiroth Returns: Final Fantasy VII Remake.
The gloves are finally off when Caspius and SiliconNooB discover Nintendo’s lackadaisical celebration of the 30th Anniversary of the Mother series: no localisation, no re-release, no port, but rather a weekend spirit event for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Caspius and SiliconNooB tackle a huge pile of Nintendo-related news, including the announcement of the Switch Lite, the revelation of Earthbound Gamecube, and forthcoming updates to the continually increasing disappointment that is Nintendo Switch Online.
When SiliconNooB goes on a bender to celebrate sudden Australian ascendancy in the Ashes, Lusipurr is forced to call up Bup for a thoughtful look at Satoru Iwata’s influence on game development, with both panelists choosing to focus on EarthBound.
Nintendo recently made the decision to price gouge anyone interested in Earthbound on the Wii U virtual console. Tsubakisamurai takes a look at the strained relationship between Earthbound fans and Nintendo, and some of the awesome content it produced.
This week’s gaggle of panelists (Ginia, Lane, SN, SB, and Deimosion) are joined by special guest Oliver ‘Riddles’ Motok for a discussion of the PSN-related news, and Lusipurr FanFiction gets read in the first installment of Lusipurr’s Story Time!
