It's fashionable, and quite right, that the norm right now is not to trust Facebook and to treat anything Mark Zuckerberg is involved in with caution. Just this week both Founders of Instagram, a company bought out by Facebook in 2012, have retired from their positions within the company after reportedly years of trying to keep Instagram independent from Facebook but with Facebook integration continuing to encroach on the platform. What you can't take away from them though is how exciting their push into VR is looking.
So it's been a minute since Playstation made a statement about how they are the superior system and that they had no plans of allowing cross-play as the gaming muggles would infect the superior race of high brow gamer. I'm fortunate because Playstation is my platform of choice and two out of the three people I'd regularly play with, including m'lady, is on the platform too. Most people aren't that lucky and Sony's blatant disregard for the times was fragmenting the player base and hurting diversity of play.
Telltale Games, responsible for introducing me to the fascinating and captivating genre of interactive visual novels, has let go of most of its staff and looks to be closing for good. Popular for releasing games based on such massive franchises as The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones and Wolf Among Us (based on the Fables series of comics by Bill Willingham), was not enough to keep the studio alive, despite being a huge revenue and accolade machine back in 2013-14.
Today Sony announced that come December 3rd, they will be joining Nintendo in their push to resell old hardware, repackaged in a smaller more travel friendly form. With the popularity of the NES Classic, that was out of stock everywhere for a very long time indeed, and the SNES follow up, Playstation have seen fit to join the fray. During the dawn of its 25th birthday, Sony are releasing the original Playstation One. Just as was the case with Nintendo's offerings, the mini console will come pre-loaded with much loved games.
This episode Jimmy talks about RTX London 2018, which he got to attend with Liam as he discovered a new group within the Let's Play family.

A wedding proposal is a pivotal point in anyone's life. Regardless of whether they say yes or no, which can cause crippling fear in itself, you've also got to contend with how yours will be unique and memorable, without resorting to something that could be considered either cliche or predictable. When Tyler Schultz came up with the idea to install his proposal into a video game, especially one from a renowned studio who agreed to help him out, he must have thought he was on to a winner.
Just as it seems that the whole world has decided to pick up and play the new Spider-Man PS4 title, it's emerged that Insomniac Games, the developer behind the game, actually had their pick of the litter when it came to what IP they could play with. Marvel were very open to any of their roster being adapted by the studio so we could just have easily have gotten a Punisher open world game. Bearing that in mind, did Insomniac pick right? Or have we been duped out of something that could have been even better?
In this episode of the Vlog, Jimmy buys deodorant, edits a video about Cyberpunk 2077 and lies the entire time about stuff he really shouldn't. Sounds mildly fun, doesn't it? He also shows off some of the best editing he's ever done, which by anyone else's standards is probably really lackluster.

Jimmy takes a look at the Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay at large and the features that stuck out to him the most that have him excited for the game. Taken from the gameplay reveal that went live from CD Projekt Red on Twitch. Subscribe to us on YouTube to see more videos similar and dissimilar to this!

We are all clambering to learn more about Cyberpunk 2077 as all that has been released so far is concept art and a very exciting trailer. Gameplay exists but has only been shared behind closed doors at E3 and Gamescom. Today CD Projekt Red have launched a very mysterious stream on Twitch that started blank but now, two hours in, features white code on a black background. The comments have gone nuts with speculation and the developer has us all hanging at their mercy.
Jimmy, having never completed a full week of challenges in any previous seasons, goes on a rampage with the help of Victoria to earn the rewards from completing the Road Trip Challenge. You have to complete seven weeks worth of challenges to unlock a secret character skin and back bling.
As you're probably well aware, there is now a very strange giant cube on the Fortnite map. After a series of purple lightning strikes, the game built to an event where multiple strikes in the same location created a colossal purple cube that now seems to be moving across the map, and the rifts in the sky have now closed. YouTubers and fans of the game have been speculating what this means and we're no different. I'm going to explore what we know so far about this foreign object and what that could mean going forward.
When I first dived into the Manhattan of The Division I didn't expect much. I'd not played a Tom Clancy game since Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and I knew the game hadn't done particularly well despite it's loyal fan base that was keeping it alive, long after many thought it would be. Boy, was I wrong. It's one of my favourite games of all time and the lore and gameplay is thoroughly enjoyable. It was my most anticipated game from this year's E3 and I really can't wait to get my hands on the next instalment when it launches next March.
CD Projekt Red's cyberpunk outing has a lot of anticipation buzzing around it, whether that will be constructive to its success or a hindrance is yet to be seen, but it was all over E3 and came away as most news outlet's Game of the Show...mine especially. That is despite the fact it didn't have a main floor presence and that, other than a desperately sort after trailer, the gameplay demo was held behind closed doors and was shown only to a select number of individuals. An invite I'd have killed a fool to snag.
This week we talk about Fallout 76 and how PVP is going to work in the game.

Now before I get started, I do just want to say that I'm not someone still blindly angry that No Man's Sky was originally sold as something it blatantly wasn't. I'm not filling up Sean Murray's tweets with hate or airing my grievances to the Hello Games DMs, calling them every colourful name under the sun. I'm actually very aware that the problem I am experiencing now is MY problem, and more than anything it makes me sad.
If you asked me what my five favourite games were, and gave me about a day to mull over a definitive answer, very near the top of that list would be Timesplitters 2. I cannot tell you how many hours I have played that game with my brother, back when we were in school, on our Nintendo GameCube (a console that sported a gnarly battle scar from the time our Dad knocked it off of the media centre in a fit of rage whilst playing Red Card). I never thought I'd see the franchise return after the death of the studio, the latest news has me shook.
If you've been a reader for any length of time at all you'll know that one of our primary inspirations for a standalone entertainment site is Rooster Teeth and the amazing content they've been producing for over a decade now. Their comedy sci-fi Lazer Team was their first jaunt into feature films and now with Blood Fest they are tackling the horror comedy genre. It debuted at this year's SXSW but is also getting a limited international theatre release for this week and ticket sales are now live!
The apology came in the early hours of this morning, when the more responsible elements of society would have been in bed, ready for a new working week. Penned on an iPad Pro, with a Bluetooth keyboard, the apology went on to detail all of the issues that have been attributed to the generation over the years and went some way to explain just how we have got to this stage of existence as a society. Many Gen X commentators have said this apology comes too little too late, whilst others decided to take to Facebook to voice their feelings to friends they haven't spoken to since High School and family they haven't seen since that incident at Christmas in 1982.
After a week of good news for Trekkies, hearing that Sir Patrick Stewart is returning to his role of Jean-Luc Picard in a brand new series based around the character, not so good news was bound to follow, to balance out the ying and yang of the universe. Both Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth were in talks to reprise their roles as James and George Kirk in the so far untitled Star Trek 4, however after a lot of back and forth with both Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, talks have broken down and, for the moment, fallen through.
I personally loved Wreck-It Ralph and I'm very much looking forward to seeing more from that universe! What's even more exciting, for fans of both Ralph and Vanellope von Schweetz as they take on the world wide web, is that a lot more characters will receive the cameo and fan service treatment this time around, including a roster to make the Disney nerds among us squeak with excitement. Ever wanted to see how all the well to do Disney Princesses relax after a hard day of royaltying? Wonder no longer!
Martha and Jimmy take a trip to Magna Science Centre in Rotherham and share their thoughts on the trip and what it involved with video from inside the museum and their Aqua-tek and Sci-Tek parks.
