Pixels & Ink: Episode #300 1

Pixels & Ink: Episode #300

This week’s very special episode of Pixels and Ink serves as both a cause for celebration and mourning.

First off, Brendan, Jordan and Alex dive deep into the Telltale Games Debacle, and try to figure out what went wrong, and what the company could have done differently.

They also discuss the precedent that the Telltale situation sets and what it means for the industry going forward.

All that plus a heated discussion on the newly released Nintendo Switch online service.

Is it right for Nintendo to charge for online? Do the features justify the price? And most importantly: is Jordan capable of saying anything negative about his beloved Nintendo?

Find out this week on an all-new episode of Pixels and Ink!

Tokyo Game Show 2018 – Jump Force Preview

Jump Force is, in all likelihood, the most fanservice oriented fighting game ever made. Featuring characters from One Piece, Naruto, Bleach, Dragonball and many other franchises, the game is being developed as Weekly Shonen Jump is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Having played several matches against A.I. opponents at Tokyo Game Show 2018, I’m left wondering whether that fan service will be enough to make Jump Force thrive in the fighting game landscape.
