On this post-Thanksgiving episode of our show, the hosts get together to talk about not just the games we've been playing over the break, and the game sales that have been filling up our Steam backlog, but the news too. Epic Games purchased Harmonix, a company we have followed as music game fans for a long time. What could Harmonix possibly bring to the Fortnite universe? Perhaps something to lure those folks not interested in shooters over to the "metaverse" Fortnite hopes to build? We...

There is a serious problem in the gaming industry that needs to be fixed, and his name is Bobby Kotick. We kick off tonight's show by taking on the latest show of horrors coming out of Activision-Blizzard-King and the decades of toxic culture now known to be set by the person at the very top. What is taking so long for his resignation to be given? We discuss this, and more. Thankfully we have plenty of positives such as the great games we have been playing this week, and a fun new...

The Remastered Editions of Grand Theft Auto from the Playstation 2 era landed this week on PC and next gen consoles and boy has the release been messy. From crazy rain to hidden coding to misspellings and much more, it's very clear shortcuts were taken to get these games released on time. Who might be to blame for these issues? How do we think they will impact the sales of the game? Why does this trend seem to show up every year and big companies haven't seemed to learn? We discuss all of...

Niantic and Portkey Games will be shutting down Wizards Unite, an AR game in the Harry Potter Universe that was hoping to match the success of Pokemon Go. What could be blamed for the games failure? High licensing fees? Social Media Antics by Harry Potter's Author? The Pandemic? Some sort of combination of all of it? We discuss this, Rob has played a lot of GPS games and certianly has an opinion! We share our opinions, and yours, on much more gaming news as well on another week of the...

We return this week after a week off on Halloween night, to recap all the news from last week and this week.

Steam has decided to ban Virtual Currency driven games from it's marketplace, causing Epic to open the door and say perhaps they would allow it in certain circumstances. Do we think these sorts of newer kinds of currency have a place in games? Or are we reminded a bit much of Diablo 3's auction house, which brought down the reception of that game until it was taken out. We discuss all this and much more in the news, even after a late start to our recording due to the power outage. Come join...

Twitch has implemented some additional changes in response to hate raid, and we talk about if this is enough or if there are additional steps that we wish they would take. Also being implemented is a controversial "pay to win" feature called boosting. Will it be worth it for your viewers to buy you ads on the main page of the site?

A Nintendo Direct was released this week, with many unexpected surprises. Although we thought we had all the holiday releases figured out, we had no idea certain games would be stealth released.

In a surprise move against attacks this week, the servers for some Littlebigplanet title were shut down with no warning. Although Littlebigplanet 3 on PS4 can still play all previously made levels, this still comes as a sad reminder that nothing in the digital age can truly be forever. We talk a little bit about this state in gaming and how it might effect our decisions on what we contribute to. That's certianly not the only headline as we jump into another week of the longest running video...

We finally have an excuse to bring up Ariana Grande on the show thanks to her recent concert in Fortnite. However, when people think of concerts in games, they might not be thinking of what actually happened in this much talked about concert in Fortnite, which came off almost more like an interactive music video. We talk about what this might mean not just for Fortnite, but for gaming as an artform, as we tackle this and much more in gaming news on another week of Orange Lounge Radio. Also...

Employees of Activision-Blizzard staged a walkout this week, and it could be a sign of something much bigger to come not just for this company but for the entire industry. We talk about this, and also about one big manager mis-step to come out so far. Later in the show in our call in segments, we hear from a listener who wonders if the game industry unionizing could bring it's own set of problems.

Valve surprised the industry this week by unveiling the Steam Deck, a portable but also dockable PC meant for gaming on the go. Or as many people are joking online, a Switch Pro. However, is what Valve doing something meant to be direct competition for Nintendo, or more an expansion to the market that Nintendo started?
