Caspius, SiliconNooB, and Seb report on the site-wide playthrough of Bravely Default II as it kicks into high gear, and they discuss the upcoming hybridised Gamescom, the almost-certain release of the Switch Pro, and the recurring failure that is VR.
Following the Nintendo Direct of the previous week, Sony responds with a State of Play video intended to build interest in a slate of underwhelming titles, including a particularly egregious Final Fantasy VII-centred showing from Square Enix.
Caspius and SiliconNooB discuss Capcom's intention of reviving dormant franchises, and SN tries to allay Caspius' fears with news of Konami 'reviving' Silent Hill for pachislot machines and Sony 'reviving' Wild Arms for an abysmal mobile sequel.
The panel discusses the best and worst implementations of New Game+ mode in RPGs, and what they would like developers to consider in order to avoid the pitfalls of Ghosts 'n' Goblins, and instead reach the same level of success as Chrono Trigger.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB pore over the recent Nintendo (mini) Direct, but find it wanting in terms of breadth and scope. However, the announcement of additional Cup Noodle tie-ins in further Final Fantasy titles is certain to mollify the two panelists.
