Is Nintendo going too far with the cease and desist? Are they right to go after Youtube videos showing how to hack a game and watch? Or has something in Video Game History set a precedent that maybe they don't? Are they just shining a light on something many people may not have cared to look up? We discuss this hot topic and plenty more gaming news on another week of Orange Lounge Radio!

Cyberpunk 2077 released this week, but several bugs are present in the game which is letting the memes fly online. What did Loki, who was really excited about the games release think about the game? Are the bugs truly ruining the game, or are they becoming "features" of their own. Have we forgiven buggy games in the past that have gone on to become great games? We talk about all this and more including MANY announcements and trailers from The Game Awards that happened this week.

The Game Awards are this week, and we are sure to get some shocking announcements along with the event. After all this was the place the Xbox Series X was revealed last year. Could we see a similar huge announcement from a company like Nintendo? Careful not to set the expectations too high, though we talk about some predictions that might make sense. Speaking of big reveals, our friend YYR joins us to talk about his latest project from YYRGames, and the end of it is a real shocking surprise to our hosts and our live listeners, as a long kept secret is finally revealed.

Recent Comments by Phil Spencer of XBOX call to light some of the ugly sides of gaming culture that rest with the "versus" mentality and competition of console brands. We take a look at some of the long history of console wars in the gaming community, and discuss why much of that mentality may not be appropriate today. Gaming is for everyone, but you might not know it reading the comments section sometimes. We discuss this and much more gaming news of the week on this holiday week and an all new episode of Orange Lounge Radio!
