We first celebrate the fact that we've been on the air for almost 15 years, but really there's not much celebration. Comments from a previous episode are shared about if games should cater to everyone and if you need to play every AAA title. LEGO is releasing a $230 kit that has a NES and TV with a rotating World 1-1, and I want it. Metacritic is asking you to wait 36 hours after release before submitting a user review for a game. Microsoft has discontinued the manufacturing of the Xbox One X and Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. Microsoft has also discontinued the digital sale of 12-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions. Then we talk to OLR about all these discontinuing and the possibility of online play being free on the Xbox ecosystem.

I contributed a video to the Virtual Southern-Fried Gaming Expo about how we used to play pinball at home before people could bring actual pinball tables home. Dragon Con has finally been cancelled 60 days out of the convention. There will be a virtual event in its place. Sony has made a strategic financial investment in Epic Games, further cementing their relationship with the Unreal Engine technology for both games and movies. A chat on our Discord about The Last Of Us Part II spurned a discussion on if games need to cater to everyone, and why the terms "play" and "game" might be holding back the medium. Then we take calls about video game pinball turning real, and the possibility of travelling in a year or two.

Something we've been asking to come back to the E3 time of year appears like it might actually be happening again, with Xbox set to unveil many demos as part of Summer Game Fest later this month. This leads into a discussion on bandwidth concerns with so many demos, and could cloud gaming be a great help with this, or not help the situation at all? We discuss all this and much more in a busy news week on another week of the show where every gamer has a voice.
