We might be fools, but we're not April Fools! We had a chat about April Fools jokes (not all gaming related) before moving on to actual news, about actual videogames. Cooking Mama is still being wild, the Aus Government is still a disappointment, and YouTube is doing weird things again. Also, Monster Hunter. News: | April Fools Jokes | Cooking Mama…
 
So I'm playing SSTR the whole time this podcast was happening, so that's a thing. IDK, I think it seems like everything went fine, podcast seemed to go well.

So you know failing business Gamestop, well through the Lovecraftian horror magic that is the stock market. In fact in order to stop the raving masses of people that are *poor*, influencing the stock market, Robbin' Hood and friends have stopped people buy Game Stonks. It's a surreal capitalist hellscape that technically has a small element of gami…
 
Are we sure we really want to escape the Village of Thirst? (yeah, probably) We have a good old chin-wag about the Resident Evil Village information released, and the demo.

Welp, Cyberpunk came out over a month ago, and still we have people talking about how much CDPR screwed up. So naturally CDPR's own founder, Marcin Iwiński, and video game journalism hero, Jason Schrier, have both weighed with unsurprisingly different accounts. So let's talk about that shall we? Otherwise we have "indie" games, indie games, Starwar…
 
Welcome to 2021! And uh... crap things are wild already... We have a little bit of a catchup about our breaks (though we're missing MrsL this week). Then, right back into tearing things to shreds!

Have a happy and healthy holidays, stay safe, and see you all very soon! INCONSOLABLES LINKS | https://discord.gg/Ta4ygAw | https://apple.co/2oXMYJY | ww…
 
Um so this was a weird episode. There was a 1920's section. Then like we explicitly said we wouldn't talk about Cyberpunk and then did? Also a talk about whether "Blind Playthrough" is ableist became a talk about multiculturalism and if we should stop saying "Happy Holidays"? I don't know. I played Twin Mirror? MrsL became Queen of France for a bit…
 
We are idiot children. Anyway, this week we managed to get through the news of Game Pass and PS5 audio recording and Flash game archives and such fairly quickly. Quickly enough that we get Paul to talk about his experience with his unexpectedly early PS5 arrival! Meanwhile, Sam likes candles, MrsL is getting back on the Minecraft cart, and Andrew r…

OK, We don't have a focus topic per se, but there is a whole lot of juicy gossip in the Bad News section.

This week, Lee aka OneLifeZeroContinues joins us to snark in the general direction of the game industry more heavily than usual!

News: | Monster Hunter Trailer | Level 5 Ceasing Localisatio…
 
So Baldur's Gate is out, and it's, it's a thing ok. Honestly the name of the episode was going to be a lot meaner sounding, but then Andrew would probably kill my D&D character and/or me. Either way, we do have to talk about it, and whether or not its worth buying atm. Oh and some other stuff too. News: | Australian Game Dev Awards | Apparently CDP…
 
Twitch, what are you doing? Why are you like this?

Apple and Google are creating monopolies. But in swoops Epic to save the day, and also make itself some fat stacks presumably. This whole Epic V Apple (and Google) stuff is wild. Is Apple a monopoly?
