After a bit of the usual yammering, Andrew starts the show with a review of Hamilton (18:50), then he and EZK take an unexpected political detour discussing Trump’s feelings on Hamilton (32:40) before debating the Electoral College vs popular vote (37:45). Getting back on track we talk about The Game Awards (52:39) and Playstation Experience (1:09:51).
And, for those that requested it, I’ve pasted a chat transcript at the bottom of this story. Enjoy!
Andrew returns to chat with Zachary about the NES Classic Edition supply shortage (1:14), a rumored launch game for the Nintendo Switch that crosses Mario RPG with Ubisoft’s Rabbids (30:03), the price of Nintendo’s upcoming mobile title, Super Mario Run (36:55), and Sony suspending a gamer’s PSN account for sharing a screen of a naked NPC in Watch Dogs 2 (55:42).
We like chiptunes! I like them so much in fact that almost the whole playlist tonight was chip! Still energized and hyped from watching the 8StaticFest stream last weekend, I decided to play my favorite artists that performed there and more, but there’s only so much I can fit into 2 hours! Here’s some relevant links to some music I played on the show tonight:
Andrew had to work last weekend so Zachary took the show’s reins and spent most of the time discussing Nintendo’s, um… interesting choice not to open pre-orders for the NES Classic Edition in North America as well as the console’s limited supplies bolstering scalper culture (in other words: Do you want an NES Classic Edition right now? You’re probably going to have to rely on re-sellers who are asking over five times its retail price.)
EZK also spends some time talking about Trump’s policies.
