In this week’s episode of newsiness, we catch you up on all the replacement events for E3 2020, as well as directing your attention to, finally, hopefully, some actual concrete information about the PS5. Sonic is getting a sequel. Borderlands gets Galadriel. And we have a bit of a chat about Steam and GeForce Now. We also cover new releases and freebies and such, and spend some time talking about the video game character we personally identify with the most!

Catching you up with the video game news of the week is important to us, so we want to do it right. This week we’ve hand-picked the finest news for you, gathered from around the bounteous internet. We set the table with FF7 Remake’s commercial success, and then follow it up with other tasteful tidbits. System Shock steered by Tencent. G2A’s audit results in a payout. Amazon Game Studios has actually released a game. Pac-Man turns 40, and Windows MIDIs turn 30. Plus, we discuss the relative popularity of mainline Final Fantasy games. Bon apetit!

We take our podcasting responsibilities seriously around these parts, so you’d better cooperate and be informed and edified by the week in video game news! LeGrande takes the wheel and rolls us through next-gen tech demos, EVO 2020 plans, J Allard’s latest gig, and more! Jeremy handles the new releases and deals/freebies this week, and Dale brings some whimsy with a topic of low-effort game development and asset misapporpriation! Come and get it!

This week we kick off Jeremy’s new project of talking about games that are on free weekends or promotional periods! Legrande starts us off though, with a reminder that Terraria is pretty good (or IS it, Dale?) and Dale returns to the Warhammer well with an Age of Sigmar tabletop simulation in Warhammer Underworlds Online. Jeremy’s game of the week is The Golf Club 2019, and so we spend some time on the fundamentals.

Fresh off the festivities of the galaxy far away, we have returned to steal the death star plans and your heart with our newest episode dedicated to some very exciting video games. LeGrande has been bare-knuckle fighting with Streets of Rage 4 and its his first time with the series, so Jeremy comes in with the double-team it. Dale has returned to Fallout 76 and finds it to be different but perhaps still not quite what fans want. Jeremy has returned to Pandora (but only for a while) with Borderlands 3, but is it everyone’s cup of tea?

Today we observe the unofficial official favorite holiday of the podcast by wearing hats, inventing dogs, and swearing off gas power. But we also dutifully bring you the video game news of the week, as prepared by LeGrande! Lots to say about Xbox, not so much about the software, events are being canceled, postponed, and reimagined. Seal speculatively wins a Mario Tennis tournament. We also discuss the ENTRAPMENT OF YOUR MIND with all these free video games. What’s the proletariat to do??

WB. A new games podcast is upon us, and we’re keeping it to that very-standard 30-minute podcast using acronyms this time. Dale has been playing XCOM Chimera Squad and lays out a strong case for you to play it too. Jeremy has been a resident of Two-Point Hospital, fighting fake diseases with social distancing. We think you’ll be quite H with this 1.

We have returned with a vengeance! Or, at least with 10 minutes of pretttty good banter, if we do say so ourselves. This week we reunite to talk about news of the week in Fortnite, SEGA, Nintendo Online hacks, The Last of Us leaks, GeForce Now, and more. We cover the new releases and special gimmies (that’s what we call them now) and we discuss video game documentaries that we have known, and think you should know too.

In this episode we’re bringing out the big guns! And big swords! And big downloads! This week, LeGrande finally weighs in on Final Fantasy VII. Is it everything he hoped? Come on in, the anime is fine! Jeremy gets his articulated mech-hands on Into the Breach before it time-warps out of the Xbox Games Pass program. Dale has started in with The Elder Scrolls Online, and what he has to say is massive. Get it while the getting is good! (PS the getting is good forever)
