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.
After paying tribute to some arcade memories and the best threequels ever made, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis review the hardware, software, and developer results for the previous year, and render judgement on which of each was the worst.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Adeki get their first look at The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, with positive responses to the former, and less enthusiastic responses to the collector’s edition of the latter.
When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild finally launches on Nintendo’s Wii U and Switch systems, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB examine it and discover to their (continuing) surprise that the game defies series expectations by delivering excellence.
Heartened by warm breezes from the sunny lands of Anime and Cricket, and aided by the metaphorical seamanship of SiliconNooB and Sebahamut, Lusipurr takes a deep breath and steers the podcast once more into the largely uncharted waters of Consumer Advice.
With the advent of Nomura’s long-awaited desire (turning Final Fantasy from a video game franchise into a fashion line), and Nintendo’s release of Miitomo (a content-free microtransaction-fuelled puerility zone), Lusipurr deploys scorn in great abundance.
Steam fumbles the Christmas rush, the opposition crumbles in both(!) Boxing Day tests, SiliconNooB humbles his brother’s bumbled gift, and Lusipurr grumbles about irrational gamer consumerism in the first Lusipurr.com podcast of the year A.D. 2016.
When SiliconNooB brings to the podcast dire news of the Final Fantasy VII Remake, Lusipurr nearly explodes with rage. In his incandescent fury, he pledges to use the site to destroy the business of Square Enix if the Australian’s prophecies come to pass.
When SiliconNooB drinks too much Australian Water, he finds himself unable to rise from bed. Heartened by an English test victory, Lusipurr assists his soaked co-host, and Bup joins them with a novel plan to help solve all of Nintendo’s many problems.
Microsoft’s refusal to build datacentres in Africa is to blame when Titanfall fails to fall and sorrow strikes South Africa. Durga Syn and Regg join Lusipurr in a Bono-inspired attempt to lighten the hearts of a distressed and downtrodden people.
