With E3 on the horizon, the weekly gaming news evaporates, leaving the normally lubricated Australian more than a little parched. In an effort to stave off SiliconNooB’s impending dessication, Imitanis and Lusipurr douse him with Cricket and literature.
A boozed-up SiliconNooB nearly comes to blows with Lusipurr over a question of the elitist interpretation of art. Meanwhile, rumours suggest Nintendo’s NX is designed to play mobile apps, Capcom learns a lesson, and Lancelot is driven to his wits’ end.
Nintendo all but pulls out of E3, choosing instead to hide under a warm, Mario-print blanket. SiliconNooB and Lusipurr despair, preferring to discuss the Cricket rather than Nintendo’s (mis)fortunes.
With Nintendo’s refusal to show the NX at E3 2016 and their delay of the new Zelda title until 2017, and with PSN itself now more profitable than Nintendo’s entire business operation, SiliconNooB and Lusipurr once again despair for the fate of the Big N.
Imitanis joins the podcast panel once again in search of Diablo III, SiliconNooB brings forth the bad–and the good–news about Final Fantasy XV, and Lusipurr wrestles with the schizophrenic controls of StarFox Zilch.
As Lancelot carries Arthur’s fight against Fort Mayne to every corner of Old England, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB wish that they had access to the Gramarye of those legendary days.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB consider Nintendo’s changing audience demographics and unchanging business attitude, the decision to make Final Fantasy XV the first car-boot-based JRPG in history, and the shocking arrogance of the Final Fantasy VII Remake devs.
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.
With Nintendo at variance with Nikkei over whether the Wii U will cease production in 2016, SiliconNooB and Lusipurr weigh in on the fate of an industry heavy-weight, and on lessons that the game developers should learn about focus and circumspection.
Because Australians have not yet invented the concept of time, the switch to Daylight Savings Time completely befuddles SiliconNooB, leaving Lusipurr in the lurch. Blitzmage quickly steps into the breach with a dizzying array of non-Cricket news.
