The nominees for the Game Awards 2022 have been revealed, but the response from much of the gaming world has been... *shrug*. Why do the Game Awards garner such apathy from gamers (if not outright hatred)? And having acknowledged that the awards are largely nonsense, which games are we rooting for?We'll also be discussing the mayhem caused by Twitter Blue users impersonating video game companies, how Xbox proactively suspended up to 4.8m user accounts in the first half of 2022, the news that Nintendo still won't commit to backwards compatibility for its next-gen consoles, and how Rockstar reportedly turned down a Grand Theft Auto movie starring Eminem.Finally, class is in session with Professor Ryebread in our Gaming History 101 segment.

The long-awaited release of Platinum Games' Bayonetta 3 has been marred by a rather messy controversy. The voice of Bayonetta in the previous two entries publicly stated that she did not return for the third installment because the pay was insultingly low. She then encouraged fans to boycott the game, igniting a debate about the chronically low pay offered to video game voice actors. Platinum Games has disputed her claims, and as more information comes to light, which party's version is closer to the truth? We discuss the drama and whether or not gamers really should boycott the upcoming title.We'll also be talking about everything announced in the Silent Hill Transmission showcase (including the leaked Silent Hill 2 remake), the developer who claims the Xbox Series S console has "hamstrung" an entire generation of video games, and the newly announced Mortal Kombat role-playing game (don't get your hopes up, there's a catch).Finally, class is in session with Professor Ryebread in our Gaming History 101 segment.

And can E3 do anything to remain relevant and save itself?We also discuss the reports that the SNK Corporation is almost entirely owned by Saudi Prince Mohammed bin Salman's foundation, the latest drama over Blue Box Game Studios and its title Abandoned, SIE President Jim Ryan's confirmation that Sony "has more studio acquisitions planned," and the official Halo cookbook that is due out in August.Finally, class is in session with Professor Ryebread in our Gaming History 101 segment.
