There's excitement in the industry this week as the Tokyo Game Show has occurred bringing new announcements and game updates, but there is also sadness as two studios close suddenly, both Telltale and Capcom Vancouver. As we get into the gaming news, we talk about the recently announced Sony Playstation Classic, and if we think it will be worth the higher $99 asking price.

Our show begins with some reflection on the news out of Jacksonville and the horrible incident at the Madden 19 tournament that took place there. Some strong feelings are expressed, but we return to the topic of video game news for the week including increased rumblings that Microsoft may offer some sort of subsidized Xbox One for an agreement to participate in the Game Pass program. It seems more and more game services are tilting towards subscriptions, could this be where the industry is headed? We discuss.

Diablo III is finally confirmed for the Nintendo Switch after months and months of rumors, but some of the ways that the game has been chosen to be revealed have our hosts wearing tin foil hats wondering if there is more afoot. Someone has asked Blizzard what the odds are if there could be more afoot for Overwatch and Starcraft. For one game, the odds aren't so good, but for the other, as one move once said "So you're telling me... there's a chance?"

Fighting games are the talk of the community this weekend as EVO takes place in Las Vegas. Some late breaking news before the show includes an interesting new character for Tekken 7. We take some time to talk about some of our fighting games, and react live to some of the news and results coming out of the contest. There's also plenty of time to talk about our gaming weeks and news, including a messy app allowed on steam that secretly mined for bitcoin. Sounds like Steam might need to watch what they are putting out on their store!

We start off this week's show by talking about the impact of gaming on what we see in the "mainstream" media on big channels and big shows on nationwide networks. Do we like to see gaming represented in mainstreaming culture or do we not like the way that sometimes it is represented? We discuss in studio and with our LIVE participants in chat. After our gaming weeks, we also get into a discussion about Nintendo coming after major ROM websites. It sure seems like a random time for something like this to happen when ROMs are available in so many places. We discuss.

After an unexpected week off, we are back to talk about the games we have been playing and the news from the gaming week. No Man's Sky is set for a big patch this week which many are approaching as an all new game. Do we think this was time well spent by the developers, or are we surprised they didn't move on to a new project? We discuss with our LIVE listeners.

On a shorter news week due to the holiday, we start with a not so serious topic about games we might be a little embarrassed to admit we've played before. Okay so maybe we don't get embarrassed about the games we play but still, there's gotta be something we can't believe we actually spend time playing! Then we change topics and get into the news from the week which include a pair of anime deals on netflix to bring us another season of Castlevania, as well as an anime based on Ingress!

After a week off we take an opportunity to recap some of the big headlines for the week that we missed including the fact that Gamestop is changing yet again, getting into the comic book business as well as looking for a new buyer. We then dive into the news from this week with our live chatters after talking about our gaming weeks, with stories that include Pokemon Go levels being at the highest they've been since the original hysteria surrounding the launch. Sounds like lots of people want to have a friends list and trade Pokemon!
