With the spectacle of the Cricket World Cup (50-over edition) in full swing, SiliconNooB and Caspius discuss Australia’s fortunes, before Imitanis joins them to redirect discussion back to the major gaming event which is taking place at the same time: E3.
Final Fantasy VII gets a release date, Stadia sounds awful, and past XSEED employees are being denied credit for their work in the news of the week!
Ys VIII has been completely re-translated, PSN Trophies are now redeemable for credit, and Telltale lays off a quarter of their workforce in the news of the week!
PSVR will cost $500, I Am Setsuna has been given a release window in the West, Treehouse translations are regarded as trash by Capcom at GDC, and a smackeral of Yurikuma Arashi makes for a sweet treat in the news of the week!
Lusipurr, utterly disconsolate at England’s poor run of form on the Cricket pitch, is joined by the morale-boosting SiliconNooB, Blitzmage, Gyme, Mel, and special guest, Melchiz. Helpfully, the VGX Awards are detailed, and Bravely Default is discussed.
As the Ashes contest resumes in England at Old Trafford, the panel takes an educational turn, querying the purpose and meaning of Nightwatchmen, Silly Mid-Offs, Follow-Ons, and Fine Legs. Lusipurr obliges the natural curiosity with a helpful diagram.
Lusipurr has a few gin and tonics and, joined by his even more Australian co-panelist–SiliconNooB–he decides to take the industry to task. The job proving more difficult than intended, Blitzmage is called into the effort, which is mostly a rant.
In an effort to bring the latest POSITIVE and UPLIFTING news to gamers, Deimosion and Lusipurr hijack the Trans-Pacific Cable normally reserved for Australian use. In a Lusipurr.com first, the news is almost entirely good: great games are on the horizon!
Deimosion and Lusipurr attempt to discuss the opinions of Shigeru Miyamoto and Markus Persson, but Bup disrupts the reporting with a bumper crop of non-news. When SiliconNooB finally makes his own tardy appearance, the podcast truly goes off the rails.
Coming to grips with the week’s news, the podcast panel handily assembles to grasp the nettle of some controversial topics. Also: the panelists discuss their lack of hands-on experience with Wild Arms, all without placing the finger of blame upon anyone.
