The PS4 has more CPU capability than the Xbone, Namco Bandai attempt to pressure From Software into making Dark Souls for smartphones, and Jonathan Blow’s own development footage gets him flagged for a breach of copyright in the news of the week!
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.
Thanksgiving and Black Friday arrive in the United States, promping all podcasts to go off the air, and allowing vacation time for website staff members. But SiliconNooB is Australian and Lusipurr is hateful, and hence The Starlight Megaphone goes on!
Lightning Returns and Mario 3D World experience dismal sales in their domestic market, the Xbone hobbles out of the post-launch gate, and Atlus is given free reign over Sega’s dormant IP in the news of the week!
The Microsoft Xbox One launches to some acclaim from some people, and less acclaim from other people. Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel tear the PlayStation 4 apart and evaluate costs. Microsoft Xbone Television is discussed: Welcome to the age of STEREO!
The Xbone is put through its paces, Ninja Theory blames the console industry for the fact that bad games do not sell, and Ubisoft attempt to excuse their laziness in the news of the week!
It is well past Lusipurr’s bedtime when SiliconNooB returns from his afternoon constitutional. Nevertheless, the daring duo forges on, with Lusipurr increasingly incomprehensible, and SiliconNooB increasingly offensive. Bundles of sticks are mentioned.
Sony spends up on exclusive content for PS4, Sony supports the localisation of Japanese content, and the Austalian ratings board once again embarrasses itself terribly in the news of the week!
Mel moves on to the PlayStation 3 this week in his continuing retrospective of this concluding console generation. A much more favorable experience, the PS3 would become Mel’s primary gaming console throughout most of this generation. Fond memories await!
