SiliconNooB and Imitanis join Lusipurr in a representation of three great English-speaking centres of world culture: Britain, North America, and Australia, in a podcast designed to urge Imitanis to play more Warcraft with Lusipurr for glory and mounts.
In the first podcast of 2015, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel distribute gifts to a lucky reader and staff member. Then, reflecting on the possibility of felicity in the New Year, plans are made for magnificent new Lusipurr.com endeavours and offices.
Having celebrated Christmas, and with the Boxing Day Test on the telly, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB settle down to a winter’s evening of video game news, literature, and reflections upon the state of Australia’s fielding–and this time, no one deletes it!
Lusipurr listens to the entire Ring Cycle of Richard Wagner, with terrible consequences for the podcast. In a veritable data Gotterdammerung, the audio recording is accidentally deleted, leaving Lusi no option but to record a solo Christmas broadcast.
Egged on by SiliconNooB and Java, Lusipurr has too much egg nog, writes a Christmas song, and conjures up images of amiibos from the Ghost of Nintendo Future, including Human CentiPeach. Mel fails to appear, but Bup arrives with a Christmas wishlist.
With the rest of the other staff members locked in the basement to sleep off an Episode 300 hangover, Lusipurr and Mel record a podcast. But then, Jack Thompson arrives with his Australian Lady Army, pulling Lusipurr from shelves across the land. Horror!
It is all hands on deck when Lusipurr sounds the assembly klaxon. Imitanis makes an appearance for the Chirstmas holiday, whilst Ethos, SiliconNooB, Mel, and Java help Lusipurr restrain Bup using only three rolls of wrapping paper and a chocolate orange.
Lusipurr, Bup, SiliconNooB, and Mel prepare for the advent of the holiday season, and storm the barricades of a revisionist French history. Bup weighs in on the Xbone and PS4 sales war, whilst Lusipurr inveighs against the Warlords of Draenor storyline.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel discuss Vagrant Story at length, and pass judgement on one of the great ideological debates from the past: Gameplay vs. Story. And, in advance of Thanksgiving, Puritans receive a well-deserved sledging from all parties.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel take a break from the addictive podcast card game side quest and focus instead upon the podcast’s dungeon crawler block puzzle aspects. Lusi and Mel power up an ancient communication device, but SN fails to hear its call.
