With little in the way of news to discuss, Graham and Steve perform an audit of the first trimester of 2021 and the video games within! There’s also a look at calendar Q2’s releases, a brief look at the MiSTer project, and the definition of a ‘2021’ game!
What will become of E3? What games will be shown at E3? What is the state of Graham’s Satis-factory? And what the hell is Sony actually trying to do? These questions, and many more, are answered on this week’s episode!
Graham and Steve explore the potential pitfalls of digital ownership rights in the wake of Sony closing their legacy platforms’ storefronts. They also riff on monster fights, the Mortal Kombat movies, being a Viking, and much, much more.
Some format changes and some scheduling tweaks are incoming for the boys this week! Talk of digital pricing, awful fans, and Australia’s classification system largely dominates discussion, but there’s still room for 400 vocalists, Godzilla, and ‘live’ Amazon purchases as well!
In an episode bitten the technical issues bug, the boys look at Outriders, being a space idiot, and one of the worst movies humanity has ever created (as well as Steve’s plan to fall farther down the hole of terrible movies) Also: Microsoft now owns Bethesda, the fiasco around The Sinking City, politics in Fallujah, and the next Must Listen of 2021!
Steve and Graham do their best to fight off the stupid this week, as the *sigh* Llamanati has infiltrated the video game world and given us news of the rumoured cancellation of the physical version of E3, the confirmed cancellation of Anthem NEXT, delays to a number of other titles, and a whole bunch of Sony news!
It happened! Steve’s PC is finally built! Bet you can’t guess what he’s played on it… Also, Graham gets all Cpt. Holt with his love for trains, Blizzard & Nintendo announce some stuff, more stupid Epic business, more stupid Stadia business, and just more!
As Steve bemoans the firstest of first world problems, and Graham roams the Wildlands, there’s also E3 rumblings, CD Projekt hacks, a kind-of-Epic Games Showcase, the return of Six Days in Fallujah, not-so-much ‘changes’ to Ubisoft’s business model, and plenty more to pontificate over! #wordplay
A new week cometh, bringing some unexpected lockdown and magazine talk, as well as news on the upcoming Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Valve getting busted, Gearbox getting acquired, and the Prince getting delayed. All of this, plus the usual banter! What fun!
