Nothing to See Here! (Ep 429)

June 21, 2022

Good news! Activision-Blizzard has declared they did nothing wrong, courtesy of an investigation paid for by...Activision-Blizzard. In Diablo Immortal news, we discover the exact wrong way to protest Blizzard's gross monetization practices. We also talk surprising Final Fantasy VII and Dragon's Dogma drops, whether Saudi investment in video games will - or should - affect our buying practices, and the insanity currently going on in WWE.

It Really Didn’t Have to Be This Way (Ep 427)

It Really Didn’t Have to Be This Way (Ep 427)

June 7, 2022

Diablo Immortal is a really fun Diablo game! Too bad it also happens to be a really predatory mobile experience more interested in making all the money instead of just putting out a great product! Sony had themselves a real good State of Play and we are positively buzzing about Final Fantasy XVI and Street Fighter 6. Epic Games isn't interested in NFTs except when they are, and why bad leaders create mass exoduses in retail.

Swealtearing for No Reason! (Ep 426)

Swealtearing for No Reason! (Ep 426)

May 26, 2022

It's a pretty somber week in world events, and that holds true for the games industry with the Saudi government buying a share of your favorite video game company and former cops taking para-social relationships with their favorite streamers way too far. Fortunately we have some good news with Raven Software giving the US games industry their first union. Then in the Post Office, Carrie and Micah manage to completely flummox Brad yet again.

Happy Birthday to Jim Ryan’s Cats (Ep 425)

Happy Birthday to Jim Ryan’s Cats (Ep 425)

May 17, 2022

Sony Worldwide Studios VP Jim Ryan's cats were in the news this week, and if you missed the original story you'll never guess why! We discuss the delays of Starfield and Redfall and if it negatively impacts the value of Game Pass. We also review Sony's initial offerings of their enhanced PlayStation Plus plans, discuss Activision-Blizzard's corporate plans for diversity in their games, the WATA lawsuit, and why we don't need to see 73-year old Ric Flair in a wrestling ring ever again.

The Pies That Divide Us: Part 2 (Ep 424)

The Pies That Divide Us: Part 2 (Ep 424)

May 10, 2022

A slow week breeds tangents! We do talk about FIFA making a hilarious blunder, the FTC taking a sharp look at the Sony-Bungie deal, and Monster Hunter Rise's new expansion. But then Micah gives his initial Drive to Survive impressions and pontificates which driver and team he should support. And finally, the great baked goods debate returns as we argue about cake vs. pie and the dessert that binds us together.

Who Needs Games When You Have Blockchain (Ep 423)

Who Needs Games When You Have Blockchain (Ep 423)

May 3, 2022

SquareEnix has unloaded all of their western developers for a song...and it's so they can go full steam into Blockchain?! We certainly have our thoughts on that as well as Reggie Fils-Aime getting decidedly less cool. Sony is catching some heat for doing something Steam has been doing for years. Twitch is pissing off their creators for silly reasons. Finally, Micah talks about his very first viewing of Tony Scott's magnum opus.

The Brighter the Picture, the Darker the Negative (Ep 422)

The Brighter the Picture, the Darker the Negative (Ep 422)

April 26, 2022

It's a surprising political gaming news show as the Governor of California may have flexed his political muscle improperly in the Activision-Blizzard lawsuit and Nintendo is the latest company accused of union-busting practices. We found what is likely to replace NFT's as the latest money-grab in gaming, and it's the return of an old foe. Brad has been playing not one, but two rogue-like deck builders on Switch and Micah himself has a secret shame that he's been playing. Gameboy Advance games on Switch seems imminent. And we weigh in on YouTube beefs.

It’s a Blunt Object! (Ep 421)

April 12, 2022

Yes, there sure is another Kingdom Hearts game in development, but why (for the love of god!)? We also dance on the grave of NFT's in video games, hopefully not prematurely (for the love of god!). Activision-Blizzard employees have shown us how organizing works, and you are treated to an extended Post Office segment thanks to a light news week.

The Murderer of Trade Shows (Ep 420)

The Murderer of Trade Shows (Ep 420)

April 5, 2022

I don't know if it's possible to do a true post-mortem on Elden Ring after a month, but Micah has earn a platinum trophy so we talk about why it's so special and why it's unlikely to be replicated. Geoff Keighley (and COVID) may have killed E3 forever. Another Microsoft studio is experiencing some turmoil. The game industry needs to figure out accreditation. Brad started - and finished - Hyper Light Drifter. And we give the briefest of WrestleMania impressions.
