Following a Mario-centred Nintendo Direct that confirms The Day Tonight's predictions for upcoming Switch titles, SiliconNooB and Caspius smugly sip caffeinated beverages and daintly consume frosted pastries amidst a chorus of self-congratulation.
To celebrate a new podcast milestone, Caspius announces a contest for the best new US iTunes review, and joins Reetin, Imitanis, and SiliconNooB to review the latest encouraging news about Skyward Sword in advance of the upcoming Earthbound playthrough.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis plan a televised, cross-America road trip (including Ethos) to visit famous arcades, pie shops, and natural wonders. But disagreement erupts over the choice of vehicle, the selected destinations, and everything else.
Imitanis brings to the podcast a comprehensive knowledge of the many forms of biscuits; Lusipurr provides an American corollary with burgers, sausages, and pizza; and resident Aussie SiliconNooB provides the beer in this end-of-the-summer celebration.
Ethan played one Nintendo game and watched another. He has good things to say but sees the ways in which Nintendo has been its own worst enemy by looking at some of their design choices that occasionally operate in contradiction.
Ethos has returned to Skyward Sword for his first full playthrough since beating it for review over a year and a half ago. He feels that Twilight Princess has not aged particularly well despite some bright spots, so how does Skyward Sword stack up?
Being the fruity paradox that he is, Ethos has decided to disagree with himself and talk about all the things that he likes about replaying a game, even if only for a few hours.
When Kingdoms of Amalur developers 38 Studios and Big Huge Games close their doors due to financial mismanagement, recently unemployed developers-at-large Nate 'Bup' Liles and Chris Privitere arrive unbidden on the doorstep of Lusipurr.com. Hijinx ensue.
In the spirit of blatant untimeliness, Riddles gives his personal year-in-review of the year 2011, as pertains to gaming. So three months ago, right?
This week Blitzmage goes over the much analyzed topic of The Legend of Zelda timeline and the recent release of the "Official" timeline.
Lusipurr and Ethos discuss the many unbalanced weaponry issues which plague modern video games, from Modern Warfare to Mario Kart to The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. Also, Rodgers and Hammerstein and The Blackeyed Peas receive much-deserved scorn.
Ethos likes the new Zelda game. Big surprise. Still, he puts on his most objective glasses possible to review his time in Skyloft. He likes the game, but how much? Read on to see if Skyward Sword meets the Ethos fanboy quota.
