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!
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!
When the panel fails to show up, Lusipurr has no choice but to dig through his records to find an even earlier recording of the Internet Radio Programme than that used in TSM 44. This time, he selects the second IRP episode, recorded in October of 1998!
Atlus is bidden a sorrowful farewell, Type-0 may be heading for the Americas after all, and the Xbone may struggle to output more than a 900p resolution in the news of the week!
As the Ashes contest resumes in England at Old Trafford, the panel takes an educational turn, querying the purpose and meaning of Nightwatchmen, Silly Mid-Offs, Follow-Ons, and Fine Legs. Lusipurr obliges the natural curiosity with a helpful diagram.
It is unusual for a game like Project X Zone to see a Western release considering many characters are from games only found in Japan. Has Monolith Soft got a wining combination of characters, or is this another Cross Edge?
Lusipurr has just about had it with KickStarter and, thankfully, another gaming crisis arrives to distract him: in an historically unprecedented industry event, Sabin actually downgrades EA two stages from ‘fine now’ to ‘really very much not so fine’.
