A whole mess has been made in the Smash Bros. competitive tournament scene, with statements from Smash World Tour, Nintendo, and Panda Global all leading in different directions causing some very big moves by those involved. We discuss the news, and how it might be indicative of key communication problems within an apparently siloed Nintendo. Late in our show, a long time podcast listener calls in to help us make sense of the issue, and share a really cool small community ritual he partakes in every week. Community is a big part of why we come back to Video Games, and another episode of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!

The Activision/Blizzard merger with Microsoft has been great for one thing, and that's leaks and statements from court documents! It appears all NDAs are off the table when it comes to topics like the Playstation 6, true feelings about the Battlefield franchise, and much more. Could the government be stepping in to try and stop this merger? Only time will tell for sure. A lot of time. We get into this and much more news on another week of Orange Lounge Radio!

After a very heavy- but necessary in processing thoughts opening to tonights show, we are joined by our good friend Shane, VOGNetwork's resident Pokemon expert to talk all about Generation 9.

New details about the PSVR2 were announced this week, though surprisingly it was all done via a press release, and not thru a special "direct" style presentation, or a live conference. Did Sony do this due to the high price tag of the device? The availability of it (or lack thereof?) We theorize and discuss this week on the show. Our gaming weeks, more gaming news, and plenty of tangent trains make up another episode of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!

The news slows down a little bit for this week leading into Halloween and some more major video game releases (with Bayonetta 3 having released this past week). However there are still some big headlines, including the fact that Microsoft/Xbox may soon be joining the $70 price tag club. It certainly seems immanent (well, in 2023 anyway) some of the subscription fees may go up, so we discuss ideas how to get savings on subscriptions now. How much do subscriptions really make up the revenue at Microsoft though? We discuss this and more on another week of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!

This week, Google announced that they will be ending the Stadia service in January 2023. One of our hosts, DarkSakura, has used Stadia frequently with streaming and gaming as a way to play certain games on her Mac. Certainly she has some things to say about this closure, as do all of our hosts as well as our live chatters. What does the future hold for cloud gaming? Who is really to blame for Stadia's closure? We discuss this and SO much more in gaming on another week of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!

Streamers for one popular game are going "on strike" in response to a download content system that is gambling. Is it fair for a game that charges full price, in a series that is released every year, to continue to milk gambling DLC for profits? We discuss this and offer our suggestions for how the game makers can do better. Gambling is also front and center on Twitch this week, as Twitch quickly responds to issues large streamers raised around gambling on the platform. However, why did they respond so fast to this comparatively to other issues brought up months ago, such as hate raids. All this and more make up another week of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!

Tokyo Game Show was this last week, and as expected, a lot of game news came out of the industry this week, especially when you consider there was no official E3 this year. However, one big piece of news broke Sunday that really turned heads, and that was the leaking of major details, videos, and even source code of the upcoming game Grand Theft Auto VI. How damaging will this be to Take Two? How might this have happened? We discuss this, and of course much more in gaming news on another week of the longest running video game podcast, Orange Lounge Radio!
