Loot boxes seem to be all the rage in gaming right now, with them showing up not only in mobile games we've played before, but in popular games like Overwatch and now recent releases like Shadow of War. How do we feel about Loot boxes, and who do we think is doing them right and maybe not so right? Of course, some people on the internet have taken some of the loot boxes into their own hands as one recent release has infinite loot boxes spawned. We cover this and the weeks news on another episode of the show where EVERY gamer has a voice - Orange Lounge Radio!

The Nintendo World Championships happened over the weekend, but did we even remember to check it out? We talk about the past and future of the NWC and if it's something Nintendo should keep doing in the future. We also welcome back to the show our young friend Julian (now 10 years old!) who gives us his very honest and blunt take on gaming.

The SNES Classic mini has arrived. Although overall it seems like the launch has been smoother, there certainly has been some issues, as one of our callers dives into tonight when we take calls from our live participants. We also talk about the SNES classsic and why some of us want to collect it, and others don't see the need to own one. There's plenty of gaming news to go around covering new consoles and things that AREN'T 25 years old as well.

Tokyo Game Show took place this past week, where Sony delivered a press conference giving game updates including popular Japanese franchises such as Monster Hunter. How did we feel about the conference and how it compares to E3? We discuss live with our chatters, then get into other news of the week which includes a heated debate between the creators of Fortnite and PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds. Is PUBG trying to "claim" a genre, or have they been misunderstood by the gamers and their social media feeds everywhere?

We celebrate 700 episodes of OLR this week with CAKE! It's no lie! Thank you all for being a part of this monumental occasion! After some celebration we dive right into the gaming news for the week, which includes the latest Nintendo Direct that took place. Were we surprised and satisfied with announcements like Minecraft for New 3DS out now, and Bethesda games like Doom and Wolfenstein 2 coming out soon? Or did it seem like there was still much to be desired, especially around Virtual Console? We discuss along with our LIVE listeners.

We are back after a week off while Rob was at DragonCon, and we start by recapping the news from the week we were gone, including news of Miiverse coming to an end. Is this Nintendo social network gone too soon, or was it something that needed to go? We discuss this as well as controversial DRM for Sonic Mania that made it's way onto the Steam release... which of course was hacked within 8 days. You know what they say, #hackersgonnahack. This isn't the only controversy on a week full of hot topics. Join us for this and more on another week of the show where every gamer has a voice!

Preorders for the SNES Classic left many people frustrated this week. Who is ultimately to blame for all this frustration? We try to figure out how this can be prevented in the future-- if it can be at all. Then after our gaming weeks, we get into gaming news for the week including similar pre-orders for the Xbox One X, which one e-mailer messages us about. Also, it sounds like data transfer for existing Xbox One owners to the X will be pretty easy, but you might still want to set aside a little time.

It's Gamescom week, and Microsoft kicked things off today with an event to push the Xbox One X. They must be doing something right, as preorders for the "Project Scorpio" bundle sell out before our show is even on the air. How do our hosts and live chatters feel about Microsoft's place in the video game marketplace right now? We discuss, then get into our news for the week which includes late breaking news about a Playstation "hack" ... but should we be that worried? (Hint: It really helps to have Two Factor Auth enabled!)

Some major updates have hit No Man's Sky in an update released this week. What do we think at this point? Should more people give this game a chance? Should those that originally bought the game take a second look? Or was this a wasted effort when Hello Games should just move on to something else? We discuss our thoughts on tonight's program about this surprise new update. We also catch up on our gaming weeks from our unplanned hiatus, and cover more gaming news.

While San Diego Comic Con was happening, Pokemon Go Fest happened over the weekend in Chicago! The media is reporting a lot of issues with the event, but what was it really like on the ground? Our special guest Charles from the Pokemon Go Podcast gives us a report on what happened at the event. How did the event compare to the local play of catching legendaries though? What will the issues from this event possibly mean for the future of Niantic? We discuss. There's much more than Pokemon in the news this week however, as Atari is planning to launch an all new console. However, is this something we are getting excited about? Or this this too similar to ANOTHER atari retro product?
