In the middle of a persistent frost, Caspius and SiliconNooB dig through an avalanche of news, finding therein not only the customary hibernal frigidity, but also a few optimistic reports which will warm the heart in anticipation of the vernal season.
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.
Caspius and SiliconNooB launch the new playthrough, discuss changing attitudes to video game narratives, and report on the latest half-witted decision by Sony: abandoning to Microsoft the Japanese market--the key to the entire video game industry!
Caspius and SiliconNooB review the latest updates from the site-wide Earthbound playthrough, details of the forthcoming release of the Pokemon Crown Tundra expansion, and the astounding and continued success of the Nintendo Switch hardware and software.
With things heating up for the summer (or cooling down for the Australian winter), the Cricket returns alongside a gigantic upcoming game announcement from Limited Run, leaving Caspius and SiliconNooB to empty their pockets in pursuit of pre-order funds.
Caspius and a now-recovered SiliconNooB nearly come to blows over the correct difficulty level for Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but find common ground over mutual dislike of the latest Final Fantasy VII Remake details regarding side-quests and missions.
As further Final Fantasy VII Remake details surface, Caspius and SiliconNooB conclude that the forthcoming title will serve only to destroy all trace of the original's excellence, henceforth replacing it, for new gamers, with Nomura's fetid production.
SiliconNooB makes merry, and then some, before joining Caspius in a considerable state of inebriation. The news is examined in due course, followed by the knock-out round of the Smash Bros. Tournament, without any sign of SiliconNooB's unnamed 'thingy'.
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.
The two grumpy old men--disconsolate Lusipurr and delighted SiliconNooB--reconvene with the Ashes now lost by England, discussing topics including Pokemon, Miyamoto, Star Citizen, Kinect, and the rolling calamity that is PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Adeki commiserate (or rejoice) at England's (or Australia's) terrible (or wonderful) performance in the Cricket, but are then buried under an avalanche of news. Only Ron's Ron Magic can save them from asphyxiation and pumpkins.
When SiliconNooB and Lusipurr discover that not only does Adeki's mother identify as a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, but that his father is a furry as well, the staff come together to celebrate how furries improve the world of online multiplayer video gaming.
