Tencent continues to acquire stakes in game development companies, Gamestonks soar due to the Reddit Trade Wars, and the podcast panel concludes a playthrough, delves into CPU industry details, announces a new piano collections CD, and skims The Plop.
Microsoft makes an about-face, Nintendo is sued, and Square Enix files trademarks which look quite similar to Compilation of Final Fantasy VII titles, causing the panel to speculate whether that suggests an intention to reimagine the entire franchise.
With 2020 finally done and dusted, the Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Seb take stock of the video game industry and the changes it has seen over the past year, including the customary awards ceremony for the worst platform, developer, and game of the year.
Caspius and SiliconNooB revel in the latest Cricket news, discuss the closing days of the Xenoblade Chronicles playthrough, prepare for the forthcoming Earthbound feature, and have an extra helping of Pikmin before attending a musical edition of The Plop.
With the Xenoblade Chronicles playthrough about to enter its second month, Caspius reaches the fifty-hour mark whilst SiliconNooB reaches the zero-hour mark--and, with a bevy of new games announced to distract the Australian, will he ever begin the game?
