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 the penultimate episode of 2020, Graham and Steve look at the rough launch of Cyberpunk 2077, and a whole slew of announced delays and release dates, and all of the news from this year’s Keighleys!
A busy week on the news front this week for the boys, with a whole bunch of new information on the PS5 launch surfacing – and a whole bunch of new questions that go along with it. The boys sift through all of that noise, as well as the latest chapter of Slap-Fight 2020, messy pre-orders, Michel Ancel, the new Nintendo stream, and plenty more!
A whole bunch of news this week, and most of it is actually good news! Well, once you get past Apple’s & Epic’s slap-fight… The Microsoft machines have prices and dates (and maybe even a couple of games!), a PS5 event is incoming, and even Ubisoft (mostly) kept out of their own way as well! All of this, plenty of other news items, other games stuff, and what the opposite of a delay is to talk about! Fun times all ’round!
Following a week that has been far less garbage fire-y than the last few have been, the boys reconvene in the digital board room to spit game on being Death’s ferry master, monsters and trains, Gods and Monsters, Mario’s upcoming birthday, and a whole bunch more!
As the boys pay their respects to King T’Challa (among other sad losses), much has also happened in the world of games. The continued Apple/Epic dissent, Lab Zero’s troubles, Nintendo news and rumours, and Gamescom are just some of the events on the books this week! AND: the boys look into a crystal ball to try to make sense of the launches of the new machines to come! #AllHailKingT’Challa
The lessons of Under Siege 2, as it pertains to assumption, come in handy for the boys on this week’s SIPTG podcast! In the chamber: Epic/Apple’s escalating slap-fight, the DC FanDome, more delays, content vaults, collector’s editions, and actual ‘new’ games played! What a time to be had!
The boys find that balance is the key to life, as there is something of a balance in the good and bad news departments this week. Roki, pay packages, more Ubisoft news, and the Atari VCS are just some of the items the boys delightful discourse about this week!
Blaseball is the new hotness ’round these parts, as the lads pay tribute to the all-mighty Commissioner, the numerous stories contributing to the growing tire fire that is some corners of the video game industry, Grim Dawn’s XP track, an email (!!!) and plenty more! Let’s go Shoe Thieves!
A shorter episode this week, as Graham and Steve talk about the future of E3 following non-E3, barking dogs, how sports are recovering from the beer flu, and the continued reporting of the never-ending tyre fire that is Ubisoft. Check it out! #WeBetterThanTolkien
