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
Despite having very little news, the boys still manage to have a bunch to talk about! Between the difficulty of buying stuff online, Take-Two’s new buy, record sales figures, and the lack of people buying Marvel’s Avengers, money, it turns out, talks! Well, money doesn’t, but the stuff around money helps us to talk!
Steve’s on holidays, and Graham’s a cowboy again this week on the SIPTG podcast. Also this week: the WWE is terrible (surprise!), Yves is trying to fix Ubisoft, hockey is back, and a new Spider-Man controversy is here to rival Puddle-Gate: Holland-Gate!
Things are all topsy-turvy this week, as Graham takes over hosting duties and professionalism (kind of) ensues. The big ticket, $7.5b acquisition of Bethesda is obviously looked over, but so is Ubisoft’s continued errors, Blizzard 2.0, Amazon’s streaming service the (new) Spider-Man fiasco, and what’s still to come in 2020!
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!
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!
Another non-E3 event is in the books! Ubisoft is still on fire! Gabe Newell is awesome! FIFA 20 is getting a sequel! These are just some of the stories the boys look at on this week’s SIPTG podcast! There’s more they talk about as well, so plenty for the ears to gobble up!
