The Starlight Megaphone is pleased to present XenoSummer, Part I: a playthrough of Xenoblade Chronicles 2.
With Not-E3 2022 on the horizon, the news enters its announcement-of-an-announcement phase, preparing gamers for the inevitable deluge of the Definitely-Not-E3 portion of June when new games and hardware are announced, and then mocked or celebrated.
After the drought, the deluge: SiliconNooB and Caspius are overwhelmed with so much news that they have to cram it in to every available part of the podcast, from the Playthrough to the Gaming Moment, and even in the Outro. It's a Newsplosion!
As the customary date of E3 approaches, Caspius and SiliconNooB face the most dire shortage of newsworthy stories yet, and, despite an ongoing Chrono-themed playthrough, they find themselves forced, once again, to report on The Plop.
Caspius and SiliconNooB review their progress on the playthrough, and then try to make five minutes of news last for over an hour, with predictable results: Kevin Costner updates, the kipper-and-cabbage diet plan, and Blizzard vs. Squeenix.
Caspius and SiliconNooB review playthrough progress on Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger (is anyone playing Radical Dreamers?), rejoice at the advancement of Xenoblade Chronicles 3's release date, and then nearly come to blows after a spot of port.
Caspius and SiliconNooB review the first week of our Chrono-themed Playthroughs Revisited, discuss the announcement of several Kingdom Hearts games, and examine how Square Enix leadership is fostering classic-style JRPG development. Happy Easter!
Caspius and SiliconNooB launch the site's third Playthroughs Revisited feature--focusing on all things Chrono: Chrono Trigger, Radical Dreamers, and Chrono Cross--before discussing the performance and features of the Radical Dreamers Edition remaster.
Revisit classic The Starlight Megaphone playthroughs this Spring as the site re-plays Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross, and join in as the site plays through Radical Dreamers for the first time!
Upon hearing of boots, SiliconNooB comes over all Australian, complete with digeridoo music and kangaroo grunting--but then, the heavens open, pouring forth in a veritable deluge of video game news, including Nintendo, Sony, ActiBlizzard, and Squeenix!
Caspius and SiliconNooB enter a second news-light week, and do their best to fill the space where news used to be by talking about their favourite cures for bunions, the best recipes for blancmange, and--of course--the hottest new pencils of 2022.
