No Man's Sky is out, and so that's all I talked about. I enjoy it, but wish the sentinels weren't so omnipresent. Then we take calls about PC games from the early days that people might have missed, and more No Man's Sky.

Vivendi is making a play to do a hostile takeover of Ubisoft, prompting owners and employees to implore shareholders that they like things the way they are. Steam changed the way they show reviews, now prioritizing reviews from people who purchased the game directly from Steam over those who got keys from other means. A side effect of this is that some games that we thought were hated were maybe not as hated by actual consumers than originally thought... Steam has also pulled the games from a developer who is suing reviewers (both professional and Steam reviewers) for saying bad things about their game. Then we take calls about developers throwing tantrums, why the PS4 Pro meeting was less exciting than their Tokyo Game Show press conference, Persona 5 streaming, and the Forza Horizon 3 demo.
Dragon Con 2016 is in the books, and I talk about the expanded video game presence as well as the fun in the VOG Suite. Apple announced the iPhone 7 featuring Super Mario Run from Nintendo and the lack of a headphone jack. Sony announced the PS4 Pro featuring 4K and HDR gaming but the lack of 4K Blu-Ray playback. Then we take calls about sports games on PC and Dragon Con.
We have a live interview with Michel Monty, Director, and Andrew Kemp, Writer, of the brand new YouTube comedy series Dice Lords, about a magical land seeking Earth's finest heroes, and finding a terrible D&D group instead. There's a new NES emulator available for the Hololens - but nobody realizes that it doesn't actually accept input. Then we take calls about Discworld, abandonware, and our upcoming Dragon Con appearances.
I don't talk about Nintendo NX rumors because I feel that's not a positive discourse - and I wish others followed suit. Square Enix took a look at the reaction to the No Man's Sky day one patch, and delayed Final Fantasy XV to November so they could include their patch on the disc. Then we take a call about why patches don't fix all bugs, and our first video game soundtracks.
