In our first news show of the year, we discover that there’s very little news going on. But gosh darn it, we make the most of it! We check in on Cyberpunk 2077’s final tally, give your regular PSA about AGDQ, look forward to the Year of Psychonauts 2 and Nier Automata’s final secret is unearthed. Finally, we preside over the retirement of Macromedia Flash, and reminisce about its impact on internet culture at large, and video games in particular!

We played some games this week… or was it last week? This back-dated episode of video game impressions is chock-full of sweet miscellany! LeGrande updates us on several games, but NOT the Big C. Dale rolls around with Dicey Dungeons in a reprise of some previous playtime. Jeremy tried out the recent free weekend for Killer Queen Black, but did it blow his mind (every time)??

The more things change, the more they stay the same… at least in the last couple of weeks. We have no choice but to bring you the latest news on Cyberpunk 2077 and CDProjekt Red as they navigate the landscape of public opinion and game development, and it is FRAUGHT. We discuss the new company policies being enacted around Cyberpunk 2077, as well as China and world politics, Riot Games’ new MMO, and we notice that Diablo Immortal is right around the corner for at least part of the world. Plus, we discuss the world of finance surrounding … well, fine, we just talk more about Cyberpunk. But we make it good.

In our midweek show we’re talking about–what else?–Cyberpunk 2077. After a good long exploration of mods and techno-magic by LeGrande, we suddenly remember we DO have what-elses to discuss!

We’re going to be honest: we’ve only really got two things to talk about this week. those things are The Game Awards (colloquially known as “The Keighleys”) and Cyberpunk 2077. We run down all the winners of the prestigious best-of-year awards as reckoned by the mysterious “panel”, as well as the most exciting exclusives as reckoned by the mysterious “deep booming voice.” Plus, we talk about the mess Cyberpunk 2077 finds itself in on some platforms, and CD Projekt Red’s response (or lack of response) to it.
