    Modern Warfare 2 Won't Let Xbox and PC Players Disable Cross-Play | Ep #36

    Modern Warfare 2 Won't Let Xbox and PC Players Disable Cross-Play | Ep #36

    Wake up, a hot new Unplugged just dropped! Aaron has STILL not returned from his elephant excursion, so just when he thought he was out, guest host Gary jumps back in the saddle fresh from his Polaris trip to Hamburg to discuss all the latest gaming news and Wired propaganda with the one and only Jake!

    With a new mission to 'not swear in order to please the algorithm gods' the dynamic duo dive into a heft Arcade Paradise celebration with the announcement of the Coin-Op Pack #1 which expands Arcade Paradise with three new cabinets AND the release of the deluxe double vinyl, whilst speculating on just WHAT is in the revealed 4-month cabinet roadmap!

    Also covered in this week's episode :

    - Eating hamburgers in Hamburg
    - Microsoft keeping Call of Duty on Sony platforms (as long as there's a PlayStation to ship it to..) 
    - Modern Warfare 2 Cross-Play being DISABLED for Xbox and PC Users 
    - IKEA shutting down a solo dev for comparisons to its store (?!) whilst Tarkov escapes scot-free.
    - Square Enix's mysterious new game announcement 'Symbiogenesis' which has disappointed pretty much everyone by NOT being a Parasite Eve game  (you guessed it, it's NFT-related) 
    - The Wired Store has a 10% discount throughout ALL November on all purchases, and free shipping on orders over £150.

    Preservation and Perspective | Ep #35

    When one host gets home, another prepares to leave. Like ships passing in the night, Jake returns from his MR WORLDWIDE tour of the finest Microsoft zoom backgrounds available in 2022 and Gary joins him once more before traveling to Germany.

    With the sirens of Konami's event and the follow-up of Capcom's Resident Evil event in their ears, the boys go through the latest Wired propaganda and industry news including :

    - Polaris
    - The Wired Unplugged Podcast VERIFIED REAL
    - Bulwark @ The Mix
    - The Resident Evil event sharing the Resident Evil 4 remake, and RE:village VR 
    - Vaporware / Abandonware 
    - Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2, Amsterdam and the pre-order campaign 
    - And more!

    Jake shares his love of RTS games and appreciation for those that go the extra mile for preservation (including uploading EVERY PS2 game manual ever made to an archive in 4k) - Gary gushes over Signalis and Scorn all whilst Aaron struggles with trunks.

Marnail ,

Keep up the Gloria Gaynor chat

First i was afraid i was petrified...

...Then i listened to Jake and Aaron and life was fine. Flowers smelled fresher and childrens laughter seemed brighter.
It transformed my life as a whole.

PS. We all need some Aaron time.

NeilDavid ,

Presenters sound like best mates. Great comments on gaming news. Doug Cockle for the win!
