Pixels & Ink: Episode #266 - Full Screen Madness 2

This week was a very busy week for announcements, and our team didn’t waste anytime dishing out their takes.

First up, was Nintendo Direct. Nintendo, still having a great year for Switch releases, announced Wolfenstein: The New Colossus and Doom would be available for this console in 2018. Quinn and Brendan talk about what this platform can do for games like these, and what it might mean for the future.

Not to be shown up by Nintendo, Apple held their Keynote event on Tuesday *applause*. Quinn, Brendan, and Lisa discuss the just announced Apple TV *applause*, iPhone 8*applause*, and the full-screen glory of the iPhone 10  *applause*.
