Explosion of Happiness 008 Ingsoc First Contact

11/25/2015 - Ryan's beginning to understand Twitch's fixation on H1Z1.  The game nuts talk fighting games and the communities enveloping them.  Prepare your anus for the ultimate Explosion of Happiness anti-censorship showdown.  Sony's bringing PS2 emulation to the PS4.  There's too many damn MOBAs.

Explosion of Happiness 007 Old Generations

11/18/2015 - What makes a good open world game?  What happened to pre-NES generation video game fans?  What happened to mid-level game developers?  Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is delayed.  More grumbling about Blizzard's creative direction.  E-sports are weird.  Micro-transactions now in MGSV.  Star Wars Battlefront is a fart.  Andrew mourns Final Fantasy XI.  Final Fantasy VII's Cloud coming to Super Smash Bros for WiiU & 3DS.  Gameplay > Pre-Rendered trailers.  Linkle is real, and so is the imminent tidal wave of rule 34.  Music at 1:00:50 "My Heart will Go On" by Matt Mulholland.

Explosion of Happiness 006 The Undiscovered Wasteland

11/11/2015 - Andrew recalls bad memories of Assassins Creed III which spawns a discussion about long-winded intros.  The game nuts start talking about John Wick for some reason.  Legacy of the Void's release came out of nowhere.  Ryan and Andrew's initial worrying impressions on Fallout 4.  Halo 5's arena improved.  Final Fantasy XIV receives a fan servicing update.  Ryan wants to talk about the state of Steam and Steam's trading card system.  The Steam controller's not getting a warm reception.  Nintendo let Ocarina of Time 3D disappear from the face of the Earth.  Fanboys are garbage.

Explosion of Happiness 005 The Final Hype Frontier

11/05/2015 - The internet has exploded into a Fallout 4 love/hate fest, but what are the actual reasons to look forward or not look forward to the game?  Konami isn't going to leave Metal Gear alone, nor are they going to leave Contra alone for that matter.  The Wii U has finally outsold the Dreamcast.  Blizzard's modernizing their old titles (whatever that means).  Ryan tells his tragic tale of Star Trek Online. More censorship from Nintendo in Xenoblade Chronicals X.  Black Ops 3 has more mod support and features in the pipeline than Doom.  Let that sink in.
