We dedicate this episode to the memory of Eric Engstrom, one of the renegades at Microsoft who brought us DirectX in the 90's, which led to the creation of the Xbox platform. I'm hosting at Awesome Games Done Quick 2021! Catch me on Wednesday night hosting Devil May Cry 3 and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island and again on Friday night hosting Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. The Game Awards took place, and it went well for being a virtual event. Cyberpunk 2077 launched with a major epilepsy trigger based on real medical devices used for diagnosis purposes, but was patched by the time we went on the air. I finally received The C64 - the full size version of the C64 Mini, and the addition of a fully working keyboard that is true to the native Commodore 64 layout makes it my favorite "retro" console to date. Then we take calls about the epilepsy trigger in Cyberpunk 2077 (along with correcting some surprising disinformation) and more talk about The C64.

Dear Sony - if I have a PS5, why do I want to download the PS4 version of a game on top of its PS5 version? Nintendo updated the firmware for the Switch to version 11.0, and it opts you into sharing your data with Google Analytics. Learn how to opt out, which you need to do in TWO SEPARATE PLACES. I rented Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory from Gamefly (it's like Xbox Game Pass for physical media) and, sadly, it's no Theatrhythm. I put together the Arcade1up OutRun cabinet this week - a sit-down driving cabinet that actually does its job well. The full video of this segment is available on YouTube. Then we talk to OLR about Dragon Quest XI's Definitive Edition now on Xbox Game Pass and why its 2D mode is disappointing.

G4 had a reunion special with the "original cast" - without any of the actual original cast from G4's launch in 2002. I got my Xbox Series X, so I talk about how the Smart Delivery system makes the Internet necessary to operate the console, even if you buy the games physically. I also got Yakuza: Like A Dragon, and I am enjoying my foray into Yakuza x Dragon Quest. Then we talk to OLR about No Man's Sky's HDR bug still not being fixed on the PS5, as well as early G4 memories.

Recent Comments by Phil Spencer of XBOX call to light some of the ugly sides of gaming culture that rest with the "versus" mentality and competition of console brands. We take a look at some of the long history of console wars in the gaming community, and discuss why much of that mentality may not be appropriate today. Gaming is for everyone, but you might not know it reading the comments section sometimes.
