Jerod joins us for a mid-week show to talk about the games we’ve been playing. And some of them are quite a throwback! First, Dale picked up that “limited time only” super Mario 3D All Stars for the Switch, and it turns out that Super Mario Sunshine wasn’t as bad as you all make it sound. Jerod dives into the world of French transmedia audio dramas adapted to video games with The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk The Amulet of Chaos. Jeremy returns to fight off the running dead with the Left 4 Dead 2: The Last Stand update.

Intro: “Isle Delfino” – Super Mario Sunshine
Outro: “L’Amulette du Desordre” – The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk: The Amulet of Chaos

We played a small game or two this week, and we can’t wait to bring the gavel down those who deserve jydgment. LeGrande tried the Star Citizen free trial and finds it not to be worth his considerable expense. Dale dons his robo-wig and “y”-themed gags with Jydge, and Jeremy hacks his life to get the Xbox Game Pass app on his Android TV, and plays a small game of Grounded.

Intro: “All Pumped Up” – Jydge, by Jay Man

This week’s news keeps things simple: just three blocks of news… chock-full of tons of delicious game bytes of news to chew thirty-two times before swallowing! This week we finally get the lowdown on the Xbox Series X and S, we catch up on the latest Epic v Apple developments, and then we check in with everyone else who thinks they’re making big news-moves this week. PlayStation 5 event? Well, that’s something. We have exactly one new release this week and one meme-themed Switch game, and we discuss our tolerance for “work” in video games.

Intro: “Rock Club” – Scott Pilgrim Vs the World: The Game, by Anamanaguchi

On this Dreamcast Day, we hit the internet airwaves to opine about the video games that we played this week! LeGrande kicks us off in style with Marvel’s Spider-Man, and we appreciate the bold moves it made in 2018, some of which are still lacking today. Dale continues with the good-concept-but-needs-work Necromunda: Underhive Wars, and we ponder the final fate of Eschers, both MC and otherwise. Finally, Jeremy played Dead by Daylight and explores the “simple but subtle” gameplay.

Intro: “Negative View” – Marvel’s Spider-Man, by John Paesano

In our top-of-the-week episode we stick to the facts and spend a lot of time ruminating on the video game news that hit the wires in this week that was. A judge makes a ruling in the Epic vs Apple situation, the next-gen price structure becomes even a little more “structured”, Sony announces their PS5 pre-order mechanism, and a few things get announced that you might not have expected. We cover them all, along with the new releases and stuff!

In this episode we get the big talk in gaming news going right out of the gate: how to troll your friends’ vacation photos. But AFTER that, we deal with the Epic Games v Apple fracas, in depth. Other news is happening so we talk about that too, including a longtime GTA voice leaving Rockstar, as well as some riveting new releases and a pretty strong outro, if we do say so ourselves.
