Please, Won‘t Someone Think of the Children! (Ep 399)

October 12, 2021

Brad got himself a Switch OLED and Metroid Dread...is the slight upgrade worth it and is Metroid still relevant in the golden age of more -vania-style games? We pick apart the tone-deaf defense EA put forward of their loot boxes in FIFA. We also discuss how we squeeze gaming in around all of life's other responsibilities.

Hopefully the Last Kingdom Hearts News Ever (Ep 398)

October 5, 2021

Sora is in Smash Bros Ultimate...yay. Also we cover the Nintendo Direct from a couple weeks back and marvel at how Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo are now definitively the best casting of the Mario Brothers ever. We have impressions galore of Deathloop, Eastward, Lost Judgment, Paradise Killer, Hot Wheels Unleashed, and Deltarune Chapter 2! The gays have also won over the Japanese development market, and Activision settles their lawsuit with their pocket change.

Solving Racism One Deicide at a Time (Ep 397)

Solving Racism One Deicide at a Time (Ep 397)

September 21, 2021

This week Micah was too busy curing the world of racism to play Deathloop, the hosts analyze the first ever Dense Pixels Derby, we discuss whether we should be excited about a Star Wars game developed by Quantic Dream, the best ever wrestling entrances, and why we should never see another video game-based movie.

I Finally Like an Arkane Game (Ep 396)

I Finally Like an Arkane Game (Ep 396)

September 14, 2021

Deathloop is an Arkane Studios game through and through, but Brad is actually digging it! Micah is also in love with Tales of Arise. The decision has been handed down in the Epic vs Apple trial and they somehow both lost! Micah and Carrie geek and speculate about what we'll see in Spider-Man 2. And we get to the bottom of who was to blame for the major incident at Monza this weekend.

Unforced Errors (Ep 395)

Unforced Errors (Ep 395)

September 7, 2021

We're back to a bad news week again, from the (now former) CEO of Tripwire Studios showing his whole ass on social media to Sony harkening back to their days of PS3 hubris. We also have trouble brewing at Paragon Studios, Sonic Colors' Switch port going awry, Brad's inability to control 200 mph race cars, and why AEW probably made the smartest wrestling decision of the next several years.

Bending Over to Authoritarianism (Ep 394)

Bending Over to Authoritarianism (Ep 394)

August 31, 2021

Brad has spent a week in a sim racing rig and has has to learn how to drive again! Micah learns about red cards in soccer. Turns out all the kowtowing the video game industry has done to China continues backfiring to some extent as the Chinese government continues its crackdown on kids and gaming. The Activision and Unity stories churn forward in predictable fashion. And we discuss the benefits Ted Lasso  and the nomenclature of the sacred symbols in the Post Office.

Summer(Slam) of Punk (Ep 393)

Summer(Slam) of Punk (Ep 393)

August 24, 2021

Micah talks about his early impressions of 12 Minutes as Brad and Carrie taunt him with their knowledge of things to come. Epic Games gets called out on their BS by the Among Us devs. Roblox is exposing children to a labor practice that's been banned in the US for a century. Unity engine is being used for a whole lot more than games, and their employees are starting to ask questions. Todd Howard can't be stopped. We discuss whether someone whose first Final Fantasy game was FFVII Remake should play the original game that inspired it. Micah discusses his first Premier League weekend. We then talk about all the SummerSlam weekend big stories like if Bianca Belair was hard done by Becky Lynch's return and the portrayal of black wrestlers in WWE, why the Bill Goldberg experiments need to stop, and - of course - what a guy named Phil Brooks decided to talk about on Friday night.

BAY-BAY Please Don’t Go (Ep 392)

BAY-BAY Please Don’t Go (Ep 392)

August 17, 2021

Even more notable departures were announced at Blizzard this week. Have we finally turned the corner in the industry (and also why you shouldn't make game characters in real people's likeness). We also discuss the validity of Game Pass from the developer side of things in the wake of two interesting tales. And a narrow but deep Post Office has us discussing why AEW is a small wrestling company, games we're disgusted having purchased, and Micah's exciting journey into the realm of Premier League football.

Don’t Make Game Devs “Rockstars”, Maybe? (Ep 391)

August 10, 2021

Turns out the feeling of absolute power does corrupt absolutely. We discuss the latest Blizzard revelations and the latest gaming visionary to come under fire for bad behavior. We also discuss the out-of-left-field Knuckles casting news, the best video game sound effects, accessibility in gaming, and the incredibly deep waters of sim racing.

The Consequences of My Inactions (Ep 390)

The Consequences of My Inactions (Ep 390)

August 3, 2021

Boy, did the Blizzard situation end up in real tangible consequences in a hurry! We discuss the latest development and why we are going to continue seeing new developments from this story in the weeks to come. Brad gives his findings from the great Game Pass cloud streaming experiment, Micah attempts to fly a plane, Persona 5 Royal left Micah stunned (for the wrong reasons), Turn 10 Studios didn't plan for all possibilities, and Brad converts Micah to F1 fandom in just under 10 minutes.
