Lusipurr and SiliconNooB mourn the passing of Max Walker, survey the most important news stories of the week, and then settle into an in-depth examination of the Microsoft Xbox One since its launch in November, 2013.
Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Adeki return to discussing video games in a week chock-full of news, including the potential announcement of StarCraft HD, and Square Enix’s novel approach of using dying children as a marketing point for Final Fantasy XV.
SiliconNooB and Lusipurr celebrate Dependence Day at Ayers Rock by watching England beat Ceylon. Meanwhile, Imitanis and Adeki plot rebellion and mutiny, but are forestalled by a Frenchman with a penchant for les poissons–and intellectual property theft.
With the end of the Summer of Smash, SiliconNooB’s attentions are diverted to other, more Australian, pursuits, including kangaroos, exploding breasts, and inevitable panty-shots, leading Lusipurr to wonder if SN has become a covert SJW paedo-defender!
The twentieth anniversary of Pokemon arrives, with Lusipurr and SiliconNooB choosing opposite sides of the issue: will it be Red or Blue as the superior option? Or will Blitzmage’s outside choice of Yellow prove Super Effective?
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.
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.
