When Nintendo makes significant portions of full-priced in-game content dependent upon access to exclusive special edition amiibo figurines, SiliconNooB boxes up his Wii U and Lusipurr breaks out the megaphone-o-ranting to lay bare Nintendo’s greed.
After SiliconNooB forgets his evening tipple, sobreity rears its ugly head and renders him unfit for service. Bup bestirs himself long enough to ruin the podcast in SiliconNooB’s stead, despite Lusipurr’s best efforts to keep everyone focused on Pokemon.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB try to discuss the Spring game selection, but end up talking about anime instead. Mighty No. 9 is delayed, and the history of the Saxons, Gaels, Picts, and Normans are detailed on the back of an England victory in South Africa!
Whilst Merlin and Arthur discuss justice on the battlements, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB discuss underboob in the basement. South Africa rebounds in the Cricket, anime Star Trains are compared, and Final Fantasy XV gains the mechanics of Animal Crossing.
Dire portents reappear in the form of a crow with a stolen arrow in its beak, and strange happenings abound: Anime news dominates, England beat South Africa in South Africa, amiibos are weaponised against gamers, and Sony tries to copyright Let’s Plays.
A sword, an anvil, and a stone feature prominently, as do board games, Cricket, virtual reality, and Star Trek, when SiliconNooB and Lusipurr put their feet up on the velvet ottoman of industry, and set about discussing the first developments of 2016.
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.
Lusipurr and SiliconNooB put their feet up in front of the fire and open a bottle of excellent cognac as they deliver the site’s annual worst-of-the-year awards, with a twist: for the first time ever, they inject some positivity into the equation.
Having forgotten fans like Lusipurr and SiliconNooB, Square Enix is overcome by fear: will Persona 5 harm sales of Final Fantasy XV? Will people turn from the gilded baubles of CGI and hold-square-to-win gameplay? ‘Twould be a merry Christmas, indeed!
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.
