This week Mel looks again at some examples of games as a service and notices that even when intentions are best this model seems less than ideal. The worry is that more games will adopt this policy. Will they? Come discuss inside!
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!
Mel examines his own gaming habits this week, both the good ones and the not so good ones. What tendencies does he have while playing some of his favorite RPGs and which ones has he managed to move on from? Click on through!
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.
Lusipurr is joined by SiliconNooB and Mel in an evaluation of England’s continuing poor form with the bat and bad luck with the ball. A rambling trip through the week’s news, and the games of yesteryear, rounds out an extended-length, pre-holiday podcast.
Lusipurr, utterly disconsolate at England’s poor run of form on the Cricket pitch, is joined by the morale-boosting SiliconNooB, Blitzmage, Gyme, Mel, and special guest, Melchiz. Helpfully, the VGX Awards are detailed, and Bravely Default is discussed.
Akihiko Yoshida leaves Square Enix, PS3 owners like their porn, and poor COD sales causes Activision to offer up some weak excuses in the news of the week!
Lusipurr, Blitzmage, and Mel have finally had enough of the miseries attendant upon the year 2013, and decide to hold the man of blood–the green menace–the villain of the hour, Luigi–responsible for ‘his’ year, indicting him for his calamitous intent.
Despite another week of news from the front lines of the console wars, Lusipurr, Gyme, and SiliconNooB instead choose to examine the surprising success of Squeenix’s recently-relaunched Final Fantasy XIV and the perils of being too successful by half.
Kingdom Hearts III is not actually in development, Square Enix are looking to move away from traditional console game experiences, and Sony are looking to salve the Vita by releasing some unusual Vita SKUs in the news of the week!
