The advent of the Xbonex sees all extant Xboné owners relegated to second-class status. Undeterred, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, Imitanis, and Durga take up the cause of the oppressed and inveigh against unethical and exploitative business practises.
Lusipurr provdes Sebahamut with a new office in the sewer catacombs beneath the Headquarters building where, amidst the damp and reek, historical artefacts from the early years of gaming are kept alongside the dwelling of the site’s resident Australian.
Microsoft has a conference, Sony has a conference, and Nintendo has a conference [of sorts] in the news of the week!
Sebahamut makes his debut with Lords of the Realm II; Reetin plays Rogue Legacy, Choice Chamber, and the closed beta of For Honor; Lusipurr endures the torment of Final Fantasy X-2’s opening scenes; and Adeki fails miserably at Mega Man 2 on easy mode.
With the death of Henry Heimlich, inventor of the life-saving manoeuvre after which–in a bizarre temporal inversion–he was named, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, Adeki, and Sebastian report on the ways in which Nintendo, Square Enix, and Ubisoft have all choked.
Forced to play Final Fantasy XV, Lusipurr is more than a little riled-up. When he is joined by SiliconNooB and Sebastian in the wake of the Video Game Awards, his frustration turns to rage directed at bad decisions and the fanboys who support them.
Nintendo blocks fan projects from The Game Awards, Wild Arms and Arc the Lad return in the worst possible way, and Watch Dogs 2 is shaping up as a major flop in the news of the week!
Nintendo’s Witch is rumoured to be competitively priced with some interesting launch-day games available, and Square Enix has shipped Final Fantasy XV in an unfinished state.
Lusipurr and Imitanis round out the end of the county championship and the most important video game news of the week before beginning an in-depth look back at the best software so far on Nintendo’s Wii U and 3DS console.
After a week of playing No Man’s Sky, Lusipurr emerges from the vastness of the cosmos to find that, in his absence, SiliconNooB has escaped from his entertainment-enhancing manacles. Adeki is promptly fortified with Foster’s and conscripted to the panel.
