Microtransactions Are Taking Over the World!
Helllloooo Lamer Gamers this is LamerTravis and Rowdy5000 for the Lamer Gamers Podcast! (Portage Park links below!)In today’s episode we’re going to break down the latest gaming news from the last couple weeks from Nintendo, Playstation, and Xbox. Our Nintendo section will have a fun new sponsor from HGTV’s upcoming totally real and definitely not fake show Animal Crossing Happy Home Hunter! We’ve also heard rumblings about a new acquisition blob monster species in town by the name of Sony! Find out who they ate later in the show, you might be surprised. Rowdy : OOOH OOOH! We should give them a clue like if Sony were pushed off a bridge and survived because someone tied a BUNGIE cord around their ankle when they weren’t looking…Travis : Shhhh, don’t give them good clues. We have to make sure they listen past the first part of the show. It’s like clickbait or a Kotaku headline but we’ll actually tell them later instead of scamming them.Rowdy : Oh yeah, good point. Travis : Towards the end of the news roundup we’re going to make a cup of angry coffee to get ready for discussing the microtransaction hellscape we are now turning this world in to. If you haven’t heard about the latest Diablo Immortals and BMW news then buckle up sunshine because it’s going to be a bumpy, extremely overpriced ride!  Rowdy : BMW, I thought we were a gaming podcast? Travis : Yeah well I thought cars couldn’t have Microtransactions or subscriptions for software based services but I was wrong!Rowdy : After we get all angsty I will be declaring that I am no longer a console peasant and have joined the glorious PC Royalty because I bought a Steam Deck! I’ll give my impressions of the Switch-like Pc known as the Gabe Newell box that our Lord and Savior Gabe Newell has delivered to us. ALL BLESS THE STEAM DECK! Travis : Does everyone have to recite their love for the Steam Deck and pledge to Gabe Newell of Steam when they buy one of these? Rowdy: Yes. Yes they do….peasant. Travis : You are starting to sound like Lord Kromdore The God King of Gaming PCs. I don’t like it…We’ll end the show with a special BONUS POINTS where we asked a bunch of Lamers on Twitter and Discord : “The Real World is Now A Game – What DLC or Microtransactions does or should it have?”All this and more on the Lamer Gamers PodcastTravis : Rowdy, cue the music!    Our sponsor this week (ok…so we normally do joke commercials but we do have a real one this week…) is the Portage Park Development Project - a thriving community in the Upland metaverse.If you are from Chicago, Portage Park might sound familiar.

The Return of the Lamers!
Travis – Helllloooo Lamer Gamers this is LamerTravis and Rowdy5000 for the Lamer Gamers Podcast!We’re back for episode 2 of the 4th season! It’s uhhh…it’s been a while. We were just really busy and not on a super secret mission to save the world by… Rowdy: Dude..we can’t talk about that…they’ll hear us….they…they are listening.Travis: Oh..oh yeah…you mean we can’t talk about that covert operation where you managed to take on the world e…Rowdy: What Travis is trying to say is we’ve had a really insane year getting back from pandemic life and haven’t had time to get an episode…Travis : IT’S IN THE WATER…STOP TRYING TO KEEP THE TRUTH HIDDEN…Rowdy: (club to the back of the head…random crashing sfx)Rowdy:Now there has been a lot going on since we’ve been gone but we’re going to pretend that none of that has happened and try to focus on the last couple weeks of gaming news for the News Roundup. (Travis wakes up and randomly yells I’m ok in the distance while Rowdy continues the intro…)In today’s episode we’re going to do a short News Roundup where we’ll talk about a few things going on that we find interesting such as the new Pokemon Scarlet/Violet game announcement. Xbox announced a whole slew of games coming out within the next year. And Last of Us was remastered. Travis: Didn’t they already re-release it or something like that?Rowdy: I’ll explain it to Travis…in simple words so he can properly understand it when we get to that segment. Then we’ll talk about some other announcements such as Dragon’s Dogma 2 and Final Fantasy …uhh…games. Travis: After the News Roundup we’ll have a special REVIEW BOMBS where we’ll read only the best, organic, absolutely pure, possibly even pescatarian and gluten free, 0 star reviews of Diablo Immortal in all it’s glory. We’ll end the episode with our new segment GAMES WE ARE HYPED ABOUT followed by Games We’ve been playing! All this and more on the Lamer Gamers Podcast
