The "leaked" Nintendo NX controller was, unsurprisingly, a hoax. But who fooled whom?
- Last week's Nintendo controller hoax was followed up by an unrelated hoax based on the first one.
- The Kickstarter for Rock Band 4 for PC now has a "get all the songs" tier. Too bad anyone who'd back at that level has them all on a console anyway.
- More information on the hypothetical Playstation 4K is now available.
- Valve is making its Steam Controller open-source and letting users modify the design.
EA Sports has patched UFC 2 to remove a victory celebration where the fighter makes the sign of the cross. Turns out having a Muslim fighter like Khabib Nurmagomedov make a Christian symbol wasn't really appreciated! Who could've guessed?
This episode aired on Easter Monday. To celebrate, Graham and Paul introduced a new, mildly headache-inducing, Easter-themed background for the Checkpoint set.
