Freshly returned from E3, Lusipurr reunites with usual panelists SiliconNooB and Mel, and new panelist Iliya, for a retrospective look at the most important news to come out of the year’s biggest gaming covention–and, to finish Candide, of course!
Lusipurr and Ethos travel to Los Angeles to cover E3 2014, and then they record this podcast in the lobby of their hotel (also in L.A.). Join them as they reflect on the first day, and the conferences of Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony. Pink drinks ahoy!
Life is like a hurricane when Lusipurr and Bup travel to Australia for an afternoon of bird-watching with local bush scout SiliconNooB. After a trip involving race cars, lasers, and aeroplanes, the panelists solve a mystery–and rewrite history. Crikey!
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel travel to France to interview French gaming developers from ActiBlizzard, including Peter Molyneux and David Spade, but are forced to settle for an afternoon at Ubisoft with Yves Guillemot and his pet aubergine. Bonsoir!
Lusipurr is the subject of a patent lawsuit when Mel claims that he invented being wrong and that Lusipurr now owes him royalties. SiliconNooB takes the case, emphatically proving to Chief Justice Iliya that Lusipurr has never been wrong. Case dismissed!
Lusipurr demands that Sabin present himself for duty despite illness, and, with the help of SiliconNooB and Iliya Moroumetz, the panel announces a new Reader Membership Drive, through which, dedicated readers can assign games to Lusipurr for review.
In his weekly radio call-in show, Lusipurr is listening when producer Ethan ‘Roz’ Pipher puts through calls from Blitzmage and Imitanis on the topic of Nintendo’s future hardware at E3 (or lack thereof). Kevin Spacey guest stars as a confused gamer.
Spoiled for choice, Lusipurr puzzles over whether to play Mega Man Legends, Parasite Eve, Wild Arms, or Xenosaga. SiliconNooB and Imitanis attempt to confound him into playing Xenosaga, but the listeners step in, instead directing Lusipurr to Mega Man.
Lusipurr is distraught when he reads on the internet that there is no such thing as the Easter Bunny, but SiliconNooB is on hand to reassure him to the contrary, doling out both intoxicating libations and saccharine fairy-tales with generous abandon.
After the power returns, Lusipurr and SiliconNooB, fed up with the continuous, appalling appreciation of Kurt Cobains, set about educating listeners on the meaningless and juvenile message which lies behind the dirty and unkempt superficiality of Nirvana.
