Podcast EraEdit

After over a year of doing news in Podcast form alongside the regular show (and with the BEMANI scene's steady decline as Konami hadn't given us a new DDR till 2006) we needed something else to fill the three hours worth of show on Sunday.

Orange Lounge Radio expanded their horizons by combining the live show and the To Go shows into a single show, and went full-on into videogame Podcasting as of January 15th, 2006.

The Podcasts were (usually) released in two parts each week, up until Episode 288, when both parts were merged with a 'free break' (not to be confused with a commercial break) to form a single download for the week's news.

Each episode featured the week's stories as reported by the hosts, with occasional commentary by the chatroom. Additionally, people could interact with the show via Skype, twitter, Facebook, Google+, Discord and the Mailbag.

But then the show must go on, as they say... Stories include news out of San Diego Comic Con, including NBC's Heroes Reborn getting a videogame on consoles and smartphones, and beatmania IIDX 23: copula location testing in Japan (no word on if that sentence is a copula or not, however.)

Also in the news Nintendo files a patent for a new system that doesn't feature a disc drive, and Konami puts out a poll asking fans what franchises we would like to see games from again.

  • Episode #639 Date: 5/1/2016 (DarkSakura was out again, so it was just skie and LOKI holding down the fort. This week was a much shorter show than usual due to the hosts being slightly under the weather, and having a mostly uneventful news week on top of that. Not that there wasn't at least some big stories, like the Nintendo NX announced for March of 2017 (and Zelda U delayed to launch alongside the new system as well as the old one) and Steam Workshop support for SEGA's Genesis collection on Steam leads to a plethora of ROM hacks (including several of dubious legality) being made available..)

In the news, stories include No Man's Sky has been delayed, (and some "fans" are taking the delay harder than others), and Blizzard is trying to shut down fans trying to create pornographic movies featuring their Overwatch characters, which rapidly earned this week's episode an [EXPLICIT] tag...)
  • Episode #644 Date: 6/5/2016 (This week we're gearing up for E3! So in lieu of Foogle Question of the Week (and since rob forgot again) he took to the chatroom to share their favorite memories of E3s past. Also in the news, more details on the Nintendo X Vans collaboration (which is only for a lmited time so you'd better get yours while you can!), A new FOX Engine powered HD Remake of MGS3: Snake Eater (but don't get too excited, it's just for a new pachinko machine.) and in possbily related news the P.T. inspired Allison Road has been cancelled... did Konami send them a C&D? They should reveal the details soon!)
  • Episode #645 Date: 6/12/2016 (IT HAS BEGUN! E3 unofficially started today so after touching on some sad real life news, we ran down the events of day '-1' of E3, talking about the reaction to EA's E3 presentation (which seemed to garner a lukewarm reaction, especially from non-sports fans) as well as Bethesda's (which we did have to stop the show for to tune into it this evening) But there were some other news stories this week, such as the announcement of the Final Fantasy XII remaster on PS4, and the next wave of toys announced for LEGO Dimensions, where you won't even need a new game for these, they will work with your existing copy of the game!)

  • Episode #652 Date: 7/31/2016 (Stories include Yet more NX rumors (but these sound extremely plausible given the things we've heard out of Nintendo regarding statements and patents they've had in the past) and a small update on Shenmue III regarding a former developer rejoining the project. ... we also talk about Pokemon sex toys...)

  • Episode #655 Date: 8/21/2016 (Shane joins us during the first half of the show to get his thoughts on some of the week's stories. Which include an interesting new game being greenlit on steam entitled Cat President (which begs the question if were they inspired by our President Cat campaign), the list of games revealed for the Retro Generations console (but are we seeing a repeat of the Coleco Chameleon?) and Gamescom news including the reveal of Konami's first Metal Gear game without Hideo Kojima, which fails to impress everyone in studio by a long shot... even if it does feature Zombicorns!)

  • Episode #659 Date: 9/25/2016 (Kicking off tonight's show we talk about a new redemption arcade game based on the Atari classic Breakout which gets us to talking about some of the modern day music games from Konami, are the concepts regarding the rewards in the two games really that far off from each other?!

Stories include Wii U units being phased out this October (at least in the UK) and more NX rumors... but are some of these latest ones more plausible than the usual crop of rumors?)

  • Episode #663 Date: 10/30/2016 (Special guests ShaneAlenko and JD join us this week to talk about the week's news, and reminisce about the good old days of DDR, beatmania and all those music games we used to love (and to some extent some of us still do, it seems!)

  • Episode #665 Date: 11/13/2016 (This week's episode was pretaped a little later the following week, (after we were off) but at least that means that DarkSakura could return a little early! Although LOKI was unable to join us, but Allen stepped in to fill in for LOKI! Stories include GTA is getting a TRON-style mod in the game, and people have discovered Generation 2 monsters in the Pokemon GO app.)
  • Episode #666 Date: 11/20/2016 (DarkSakura returns for her first live episode since her hiatus! In this unholy milestone (complete with a demonic one-time only intro) we reminisce a bit about where we all came from, (especially given that the episode date also lines up with one of the most infamous songs in DDR and beatmania, 20, November!) Stories include More Nintendo Switch rumors (including a port of Pokemon Sun/Moon and an interesting crossover RPG featuring Mario and Ubisoft's Rabbids in the same game!) and Nudity in Watch Dogs 2 gets one PSN user banned, but who's fault was it, really?)

(Knowing them it's either a new slot machine or possibily a plug-and-play console.))
  • Episode #670 Date: 12/18/2016 (We start off the show with some surprising real-life news that rob accidentally predicted during last week's show, then we talked a bit about the official announcement of Super Mario World coming to Universal Studios parks in the US and Japan! Stories include Lost Odyssey available for the rest of 2016 for free, and a new adult film inspired by Final Fantasy XV! (perhaps the company may also publish a Let's Play on their channel alongside this new movie, as that's a field they are also dabbling into!))
  • Episode #671 Date: 12/25/2016 (Happy Holidays! LOKI had the week off to spend time with the family for the holiday. Tonight we talk briefly about what a year it's been for celebrity deaths (complete with another one the day we taped!) and although it was a shorter show, there was still a little bit of news... (and drinking! which lead to some particularly amusing moments!)

We also discovered the origins of Naruto's son, Boruto! Which lead to some funny moments after Release Dates were over!)

This week Nintendo held a direct to announce some more of their holiday 2018 titles, as well as a couple of their Q1 2019 games! Of course the big news out of the direct, was the final details on their forthcoming Online service with the NES Games! So we discuss everything that they revealed, and if we think this service warrants $20 a year considering what they give you. Stories include Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2 and XII all heading to Nintendo Switch next year (in addition to Crystal Chronicles, Chocobo's Mystery Dungeon: Everybuddy and Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD), and Forza streaming on XBOX helping with influence in-game.)

Could it be a new game announcement?!)
  • Episode #746 Date: 9/30/2018 (We kick off tonight's show discussing Sony's decision to cave on crossplay with other consoles, at least as far as Fortnite is concerned. Stories include First details on Konami's 20th Anniversary of DDR celebration (revival songs that feature HD recreations of the original interfaces from their debut games), Details on what's to become of of Telltale's future projects (seems Devolver wants to scoop up the Stranger Things game and any of the devs that want to pick up where they left off) and fan creation 'Bowsette' has been blowing up the internet, but rob is already 100% done with it all.)
  • Episode #747 Date: 10/7/2018 (We're joined in studio by special guest Delvin from the Video Game Realness podcast, who comes to us all the way from Canada!

Other stories include rumors of a new disc-less XBOX ONE, and rumors on Diablo 4 (aka Project Hades) at the top of Part B we talked to yyr of yyr Games to celebrate the tenth anniversary of his first game, the OLR Dream Game Bungee Ferret Tossing, and to find out about some upcoming releases he has in the works.)

Stories include Steam Store changes revenue, and shortly thereafter Epic announces their own storefront (kicking off with a few freebies to entice people to join) and the Playstation Classic was hacked barely a week out from release, as fans discovered specific brands of USB keyboards allow access to the emulator settings menu and that just snowballed into loading custom ISOs from there! Also tonight had the longest running chatroom gag in show's history with 'take a game title and replace a word with broccoli' basically dominating chat the remainder of the night after emails were over!)
  • Episode #756 Date: 12/16/2018 (With this week's episode, we bid a fond farewell to the Shoutcast stream and the IRC chatroom, at least as far as the Sunday shows are concerned as we've made the jump over to!
