Pixels & Ink Podcast Episode #267: The Most Important Shooters of ALL TIME!

This week, Brendan, Quinn, Phil, and Lisa discuss the most influential shooters of all time. From game-changers like Wolfenstein and Doom, to Quake, GoldenEye 007Half Life, Halo, and the dominating Call of Duty, the team walks through how these titles changed the face of the genre and videogames in general.

In games news, the gang takes a look at the new trailer for the highly anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2, and the battle-royale tension between Playerunknown’s Battleground and Fortnight. They discuss what the cross-play glitch in Fortnight means for the possibility of a cross-play feature between Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Phil is back with his take on Tom Cruse’s latest movie, American Made. He also gives the team a rundown of the surrealist feature, mother!.
