We are back after the Labor Day holiday this week to tackle two big gaming developments at the start of the show- first the Mario 35th anniversary Nintendo Direct which features a new Mario 3D All-Stars collection. Do our hosts think this is worth the $60 price of admission? And what is up with the limited time offering of the collection, even digitally? We discuss this, then get into some news out of Microsoft's camp, as leaks forced them to show their hand with Xbox Series S and Series X early. What do we think of what we have seen so far? And what might Sony bring to the table this week? We talk about all this and more on another episode of Orange Lounge Radio!

Gamescom happened this weekend, even if in a new virtual format, and gave us several new game announcements and updates of games to look forward to. Nintendo also presented us with another Direct this week, though it was another Mini direct focusing on non first-party titles. Our hosts sure were excited about the number of one particular genre of games that was represented though. We discuss these various announcements and more news on another week of the show where every gamer has a voice!

A company and their public relations company uses a tactic to advertise on many twitch streams that some are calling shady. We talk about what is going on and how it may impact game streamers moving forward in the future. Later in the program, we talk about drop changes coming to twitch which can also have the potential to change streaming, but in a good way as hopefully streams with drops enabled will be less spammy and more productive. We talk about all this, more news, and our gaming weeks on another week of the show where every gamer has a voice!

Fortnite makes a play against the Apple and Google app stores, but do we think Epic Games has the interest of the consumer in mind, or is there something more calculated about these legal maneuvers they are making? We discuss with our chatroom live. Also we talk about our gaming weeks, and some recent developments with the Xbox Series X launch including one highly anticipated game being delayed.

Halo Infinite confirms this week that it's online multiplayer will be free, no longer requiring Microsoft Gold. This will be great if the rumored Battle Royale mode turns out to be true. However in a topic that's come up many times on this program, is this a sign of the end of paying for multiplayer online with consoles? Also, the makers of Halo have responded to recent criticisms of what was shown at the Xbox Game Event. Is this sort of social media feedback a good thing for our industry, or harmful? We discuss all this and more!

This week we had some exciting new game announcements from Microsoft as they showed off what's coming soon from Microsoft Studios and related partners.

As games have almost hit the limit of what can be done graphically, what really marks a shift in a gaming generation? We tackle this big question and many more on this weeks show!

We had some big announcements from Devolver Digital and Ubisoft this week. Devolver went a very clever route with an interactive "E3" style first person adventure, which some of our hosts have explored and share their thoughts on this unique press conference. While Ubisoft introduced new titles in staple franchises, some serious issues have come to light causing high level executives to exit the company. We discuss this and more in gaming news on this weeks Orange Lounge Radio.

Something we've been asking to come back to the E3 time of year appears like it might actually be happening again, with Xbox set to unveil many demos as part of Summer Game Fest later this month. This leads into a discussion on bandwidth concerns with so many demos, and could cloud gaming be a great help with this, or not help the situation at all? We discuss all this and much more in a busy news week on another week of the show where every gamer has a voice.
