    * Please note this episode was recorded a few hours before Sony announced Cyberpunk 2077 would be delisted from the PlayStation store.

    Cyberpunk 2077 is still on fire and today we’re digging a little more into the shady nature of the game’s release and the impact it might have on CDPR going forward.

    We’re also talking about winners from The Game Awards… weirdly we didn’t have much to say about any of the world exclusives? ( Probably because Brian’s computer exploded but you can catch the daily episode about it anyway I guess). 

    Lastly, we tackle Twitch’s latest update to their terms of service and its target, contextualized use of the words ‘simp’, ‘incel’, and ‘virgin’.

The new teaser made me cry I’m so happy to know y’all will continue to do the cast. I seriously so happy. My year just became a little brighter.

Thank You

As a sophomore in super hard advanced classes this works wonders as background noise and even though I don’t have the money to play video games, I love to learn about them in every way besides playing possible, and there’s a ton that I listen to lore and logical science wise, but learning about the marketing and journalism is so interesting, and it’s even more interesting with your way of formatting it, with humor but also getting to the point. So thank you.
