Hi, folks. I have the unpleasant task of informing you that there will not be a new show for this week. Trust us, we are aware of the hiccups in releasing shows for you this year, and just when it appeared that we had some momentum in releasing shows with a new-found sense of regularity, we encounter another stumbling block. The issue this week is not one of either life or illness as was the case with past weeks. Instead, what we encountered were technical problems. Specifically, our main computer used for recording, (along with many other important things), was seriously wanting to die. The troubleshooting process is still ongoing, but we’re hoping to have this thing licked and be back again with you next week.
Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as Mike was tied up with work all week and unable to get away to record with Dennis. It has been a bit of wonky schedule for the show so far this year, but life happens sometimes and things should be returning to normal after this. Plus, next week isn’t all that far away and will be here before you know it!
Unfortunately, there will not be a new show for you this week as both Mike and Dennis have fallen ill in recent days. Don’t worry, it’s nothing major and isn’t anything to worry about. Mike has simply come down with an unpleasant stomach bug, while Dennis is suffering from a case of the flu that’s been going around. Hopefully, with this week off, both will be back up and close to 100% to deliver a new show for you next week.
However, this unforeseen week away does make for an awkward pattern in our release calendar as we will be away once again the week of Friday, February 2nd as Mike will be pre-occupied with work that week. But, life doesn’t always go according to plan and getting sick is something beyond our control. So all we can do is make up for the lack of shows by increasing the awesome in the ones we are releasing!
Friends, this week The Arcade continues its look back on the past year with part two of our 2017 Year In Review. On this episode, we’ll focus our attention on some of the ludicrous speedrunning and gaming accomplishments from the past year, stories involving crazy amounts of money, as well as a recap of the year in eSports. We’ll also take a look ahead to the upcoming year in games, and what we can expect to see from Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, and some third-party companies.
