Explosion of Happiness 030 War Has Changed

04/28/2016 - Ryan brings up the topic of terrible online communities after wrestling with his love/hate relationship with Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.  Andrew drops some details on the future of FromSoftware and his thoughts on Dark Souls 3 post-completion.  Nintendo caused another fan ruckus over The Legend of Zelda for WiiU, confirmed to be coming to NX as well.  Atlus wants its western fans to respect the Japanese essence of Tokyo Mirage Sessions, so they went ahead and censored a bunch of Japanese customs in it.  The inevitable return of paid mods is ever closer.  Rumor has it the original Modern Warfare is getting moderner on PS4.

Explosion Of Happiness 029 Hurt Me Plenty

04/21/2016 - The Doom open beta left the game nuts very dissatisfied with ID and Bethesda's treatment of the IP.  The Titanfall 2 trailer leads Ryan to predict a future trend in trailers.  Rambo: The Video Game is getting free DLC for what ever reason that defies any and all logic in the universe.  Super Giant Games is coming out with an RPG.  Corpse Party is coming to Steam and 3DS and it's... Not getting censored?  John  Romero is teasing his new FPS on Twitter.  Ken Levine is working on a Twilight Zone interactive not-game or something.  Playstation Neo details.  Xbox 360 discontinued.  Star Fox Zero's critical reception was exactly as predicted.

Explosion of Happiness 028 Soul Addiction

04/14/2016 - The game nuts have plenty to say about Dark Souls 3.  Retroactive opinions on the 2014 Godzilla movie.  Turns out Leslie Benzie's departure from Rockstar did bring drama. Microtransactions on Grand Theft Auto V have earned over 500 million dollars.  The developers of Rust are more than happy to stir up pointless controversy.  Doom's open beta is just around the corner and early opinions are not optimistic.

Explosion Of Happiness 027 False Narratives

04/07/2016 - Thoughts and opinions on Tree of Savior's monetization, Call of Duty: Black Ops III's campaign, and the Final Fantasy XV Platinum Demo.  A massively false narrative concerning Baldur's Gate: Siege of Dragonspear's negative user reception is vomited across the web by your typical rotten-to-the-core gaming news sites, and the game nuts promptly lambaste it.  The question of "should an artist's work stand apart from the individual?" is discussed in the context of video gaming.  Blizzard replaced the ridiculously over-controversial Overwatch character art.  Nintendo slaps down a fan tribute to The Legend of Zelda.  Blizzard slaps down a World of Warcraft vanilla server.  Doom's multiplayer DLC is just sad.  A prank on the CS:GO community leads to a discussion on how microtransactions are smearing the line between gaming and gambling.  The Oculus Rift is going to invade everyone's privacy.  WB is supporting Mortal Kombat X's competitive scene, too bad they won't support the actual game.  Teasing of God of War 4.

Explosion of Happiness 026 Hentai Capital USA

03/31/2016 - Despite obnoxious hardware failure the game nuts assemble and spend half the podcast talking about inappropriate things again.  Goldeneye has aged horribly but it's still fun.  Andrew tried out Stardew Valley and found it pleasing to the play.  Dark Souls 3 is almost here.  You can't avoid spoilers on the web unless you cut the cord.  Windows 10 is pissing the game nuts off again and still without them even using it.  The NX controller leak was faked, but impressively.  Ryan points out an important detail Andrew missed regarding Punch Club's promotion controversy discussed in episode 14.  A good old roundup of censorship and not censorship related news involving Overwatch, Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, and Street Fighter V.  Destructoid blasted Dead or Alive Xtreme 3.  Final Fantasy XV has a demo, sort of, better actually.  Ryan vents his hate for Paramount.  Andrew vents his hate for the new Ghostbusters.  A lengthy porn discussion switches into hating on Portland hipsters.  Women's most searched pornhub term in USA by state:
