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!
