Sony releases financial year 2018 sales, Nintendo releases fourth quarter sales, and Japan rates the top twenty video games of the last thirty years in the news of the week!
When SiliconNooB is laid low by another bout of the Australian Flu (sobreity), Imitanis and Lusipurr are left to cover the news themselves, whilst also unveiling the spring 2019 site playthrough and an opportunity for 2018 donators to receive [bad] games.
In this special round-table discussion, panelists Adeki, SiliconNooB, and Lusipurr (along with special guest Imitanis) discuss what it takes to make a truly great video game, and what video games best fulfil the potential of the medium.
Ethos was very excited to download Suikoden II and start his very first playthrough of the game this week, but he also took a long pit stop to play nothing but Smash Bros. Is he enjoying Suikoden? And what exactly is Sexy Shulk Wars? Read and find out!
Spoiled for choice, Lusipurr puzzles over whether to play Mega Man Legends, Parasite Eve, Wild Arms, or Xenosaga. SiliconNooB and Imitanis attempt to confound him into playing Xenosaga, but the listeners step in, instead directing Lusipurr to Mega Man.
When the panel fails to show up, Lusipurr has no choice but to dig through his records to find an even earlier recording of the Internet Radio Programme than that used in TSM 44. This time, he selects the second IRP episode, recorded in October of 1998!
Digging back into the mists of time, Lusipurr uses his Chrono Trigger to uncover a podcast from the early days of the internet, predating Lusipurr.com, broadband, both the PlayStation3 and PlayStation2, the iPod and iPhone, and the word ‘podcast’ itself!
In this week’s episode, Biggs downloads some content, Jake 2 is released, and Lusipurr gives us a history lesson. Also, a Pokemon ban is overturned, Devil May Cry goes HD, and EA Origin cracks down on our abominable, persistent belief in property rights.
