08/24/2016 - Gawker media is no more.  Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is out, and despite Ryan and Andrew's optimism, there's undeniable controversy surrounding the game.  Facebook is going to compete with Valve, except not really.  Plentiful Sony hardware news.  ZeniMax vs. John Carmack.  AM2R's creator is back and baiting Nintendo's wrath.  Where the hell is the NX?  Devolver Digital and Croteam are putting out a survival sandbox game.  First Dark Souls 3 expansion is coming.  Valve is pissing off CS:GO eSports cum guzzlers.  Allison Road is back from the dead.

Explosion of Happiness 046 Please Traumatize Children

08/17/2016 - Spontaneous directionless angry rants brought to you by the usual degenerates.  Metal Gear Survive is what none of us wanted.  Resident Evil 7 is what some of us wanted.  EA is remastering games that they didn't already get to ruin.  Breath of the Wild is going to have meaningful day and night cycles.  Kids need a good scare sometimes.  New Orleans is a fitting place for Fallout.

Explosion of Happiness 045 No Game's Sky

08/13/2016 - It only took 20 hours to see all there is to see in an infinite universe.  Egos are masturbated in a discussion about No Man's Sky's reception as well as collected thoughts on the actual game.  Andrew forced himself to see Suicide Squad.  Star Trek Discovery's marketing and pandering is going exactly the way Ryan dreaded.  Marvel Ultimate Alliance is back on PC for full price and along with a ton of bugs. Quake: Champions and Prey's gameplay trailers maintain the status quo.  Nintendo is DMCAing awesome things again, like AM2R and the Nintendo Power archive.  Quantum Break is coming to Steam, Windows 7 and DX11.  The makers of Black Desert Online decided they don't want fans anymore.

Explosion of Happiness 044 Terms of Use

08/03/2016 - The Metroid series has aged like fine wine.  Blizzard's latest ban wave sent cheaters into a rage.  Character skins are not video games.  Battlefront 3 continues its cycle of cancellation and resurrection.  More Microsoft shenanigans.  Niantic is pissing off their audience.  No Man's Sky is almost out and the leaks are confirming expectations.  Deus Ex: Mankind Divided looks rad.
