Since it has been a few weeks since the last live show, I give some updated impressions of the PlayStation VR's Playroom VR, Forza Horizon 3, as well as new impressions of Rock Band Rivals, the $30 expansion to make Rock Band 4 suck less. "Rumors and sources" have claimed that Nintendo was ceasing production of the Wii U this week, but Nintendo Japan has denied these claims. Then we take calls about GOG sales and Capcom Live, the live orchestra concert featuring Capcom music from the creators of Video Games Live.

The Game Awards and PlayStation Experience happened, and other than Parappa The Rappa's 20th Anniversary release, we don't talk about much of it. I picked up Final Fantasy XV after all, and also watched the Kingsglaive movie and the Brotherhood anime, and give my impressions based on the first few hours of the game. The Advertising Standards Authority in the UK ruled that No Man's Sky's Steam page did NOT mislead consumers. Then we take calls about Ni No Kuni 2, more sales, Overwatch winning GOTY, and Pokemon Sun and Moon for vision impaired gamers.
I start off talking about the LEGO Dimensions Sonic the Hedgehog Physical DLC, and how much it accurately portrays the Sonic franchise in every way. No Man's Sky has launched it's new Foundation Update, that brings a lot of new gameplay to the very controversial game. HTC has launched Viveport, their storefront for selling VR apps that might not fit on the Steam platform, and wants ALL VR platforms to come on board. Then we take a somewhat heated call about how No Man's Sky deserves all the criticism it gets, and then a less heated call about free games. And then some Final Fantasy XV hype.
After being out of the country for a week on a cruise, we're back with another live episode, which is devoid of news other than nobody being able to find a NES Classic. There is a Wireless addon for the HTC Vive coming out of China that allows people to not trip over themselves while in VR. A PSN user in the UK shared a screenshot from Watch Dogs 2, but got banned because it violated Sony's own ToS. Then we take calls about the NES Classic Party at the Nintendo Store in Times Square, and Pokemon Sun and Moon.
In this non-live edition of the show, we play some interviews originally filmed for YouTube from FandomFest and SIEGE. Our first interview is a mildly NSFW interview about the card game Quickie, which is about STD's. It's not as offensive as it sounds, but it's still got some content not suitable for minors. Because that's our first interview, I do touch on the story about Ocular Herpes coming from VR headsets that was going around a few weeks ago, and how you shouldn't be as worried as social media would tell you. Then I interview Ron Jones about The Indie Cluster, a movement in Atlanta to promote indie games as well as the game industry to the local community. And the last interview is about Bugspeed Collider, a Smash Bros style game where you are all insects battling each other, currently available on Steam.
