We start off the show talking about SEXY GAMES (did something catch your attention?) and how Valve has been treating them on the Steam store. This gets into a larger conversation about sex and the internet and how easily accessible smut is, so how do we think Valve should be treating these games? We talk about this and more including our gaming weeks and the weeks news on another week of the show where EVERY gamer has a voice!

The much anticipated plan for Nintendo's online service has been announced this week, and we get into quite a debate at the top of our show about whether we think they have approached the classics correctly, or not. Speaking of much anticipated plans however, it appears that Walmart's systems in Canada may have leaked out some coming E3 surprises. However, why do we have so many surprises in the gaming industry anyway? We discuss with our LIVE listeners.

Some very classic games, Mega Man 2 and Mega Man X, are being re-released on cartridges soon. Does something like this appeal to our video game collector senses? Or is there just no beating the real thing, the classics? We discuss this interesting new trend in game collecting, and then dive into the weeks news which includes new books coming for Nintendo products. It's not the first time they've made books out of video games though as we take a trip down memory lane.

Microsoft announced that they will be integrating Xbox activity into Discord. It seems like Discord has come a long way in a short amount of time with gamers, and we spend some time talking about the various chat apps that are available out there and how they have changed the way we play games online. Also, LOKI picked up a Nintendo Switch this week, and we talk to him a bit about his experiences with the system so far.

Is Battle Royale fever taking over the industry? It sure looks like the next E3 might be full of Battle Royale modes in games, if the direction two big series are heading in is any indication. However, our hosts might be a whole lot happier with the Battle Royale trend if one internet meme were to turn out to actually be true. We discuss all this and more including the recent message put out by Bioware that does not sit well with our hosts. It's a rough but real start to another episode of Orange Lounge Radio!

After some quick movie chat (hey, sometimes we like to watch movies as well as play games), we shift the conversation to concerts. Is there a video game concert that you've seen that was awesome? What is your dream concert? We ask this of our hosts as well as our live listeners at VOGNetwork. Then we get to the news, which includes the development of the stripping of Billy Mitchell's titles as record holder in Donkey Kong. What do we think of this situation and Billy's follow-up message? Will the classic gaming score scene never cease to bring us drama? Find out on an all new Orange Lounge Radio!
