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!
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
After a week off, Graham has fallen ever deeper down his quest to design the most Satisfactory factory possible and Steve has been on holidays for a week – so what could possibly have happened in the additional 7 days? Turns out: a lot! Blatant Chinese IP/likeness theft (with a sprinkle of British stupidity), E3 replacements, the Coronavirus’ continued impact on the industry, and more announcements and rumours. Plus: How could Band of Brothers and Friends possibly be related? The results… might shock you
Not even the Coronavirus can stop the SIPTG podcast! This week: GDC is postponed, the Xbox Series X is detailed further, Graham experiences satisfactory Satisfactory progress, what CD Projekt Red are worth, and much, much more!
Hopefully you’re able to hear this episode, after technical issues caused by Steve make Graham’s job a lot harder! This week, should you Split or Steal, throw sonic booms, stream Activision games, or try to do some Division? Find out the answers to these questions, and more!
In Episode 1 proper of 2020, the boys catch up on what they’ve done during the break, and on all of the big stories that happened during their time off! From delays, to ESAs, and everything in between, there’s plenty to talk about!
E3 is in the rear view, so now it’s time to talk about what was shown! Graham and Steve go over all of the announcements from Microsoft, Bethesda, Ubisoft, Square-Enix, and Nintendo, as well as their impressions of it all! What was good? What was awful? And who won? Find out!
Ya boys are back in the building to talk all things E3, including all of the important pre-show leaks, news, and announcements, before launching into another year’s predictions! What do we get right (probably not much…)? What do we get wrong (likely a lot…)? Join us to find out!

Steve’s on holidays, Graham’s in Washington, and there’s been a ton of news! Aside from discussions of their dalliances with a bunch of games (and films!), the boys look over all of the week’s big news, like PS5 deets, Apex patches, and whole of slew of announcements!
Yet another quiet week sees Graham continue his pilgrimage through Ancient Greece, while Steve tries to save Hope County from a charismatic threat (again…). Also, musings on the future of E3, difficulty in games, and hoping someone stops the monstrosity that is movie Sonic.
