Caspius and SiliconNooB devote themselves to a most political podcast, focusing on problems of discourse in the gaming community, and what gamers (and journalists) mean when they speak of ‘politics’, ‘immersion’, and other vague or contentious topics.
Tokyo Mirage Sessions will probably be censored, Blizzard is now in charge of upholding Chinese State censorship, and censor happy Sony is in a state of chaos ahead of the launch of the PS5 in the news of the week!
Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis discuss the history of site-wide playthroughs, and try to decide whether to play a game that is available on current systems (Breath of Fire!) or a game which is available only on older consoles (Earthbound!).
Caspius and SiliconNooB stage an intervention with Imitanis, the site’s premiere Fallout fanboy, using a combination of traditional JRPGs, classic pixel art, chiptunes soundtracks, and repeated whacks about the face and head with a steel-rimmed megaphone.
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!
Caspius and SiliconNooB review the end of summer prospects for video games–and there are a lot of them. With a bounty of new releases and remasters, and the prospect of the Christmas season on the horizon, the future of gaming has never looked brighter!
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!
As England and Australia contest the fourth Ashes Test, Nintendo releases a new Direct announcement with both broad support for classic ports and the long-predicted addition of a Super Nintendo Switch Online service, leading to Mr. Nintendo’s depression.
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.
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.
