Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Mel find themselves utterly downhearted after sifting through yet another week of depressing news. But then, they find a ray of hope in an unlikely place, and things begin to look up, eventually culminating in a very merry Bup.
Ubisoft is awful, their developers are horrid, and Xbox One performance is loathsome in the news of the week!
Ethos and SiliconNooB discuss changes to PlayStation Network content and prices, Mel buys Smash Bros. fN3DS whilst Bup muses on Nintendo’s decision to release it just a month before the Wii U version, and Lusipurr searches for the best ‘beginner RPG’.
Following the Tokyo Games Show, Lusipurr fires everyone and releases scores of jitterbugs, resulting in a curious increase in productivity, Mel prepares himself for handheld Smash Bros., and SiliconNooB realises that there is no exploration in Metro.
Lusipurr, Ethos, and SiliconNooB scrape the bottom of the barrel to find news worth reporting. As the end-of-year playthrough approaches, the panelists appeal to readers to comment and spread the word about the site. Step up and tell your friends today!

Day-One DLC, multiple packaging SKUs, In-App Purchases, Store Specific Pre-order items, and so much more are just many of the dubious perks of modern day gaming, brought to you by excess the likes of which makes anyone of sound mind sick.
Still bringing straight facts to gamers, the site’s journalistic integrity remains rightly unquestioned. The panel unites to discuss the week’s news and–really, is anyone even reading this? It all seems such a waste. I do not even know why I bother.
The first Lusi vs. Bup arrives in a feature-length podcast crammed chock-full of culture: Literature, Music, and Intelligent Discourse all feature prominently, as does a double helping of Cricket live-commentated from the last over of the T20 Blast final!
