On this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Jordan and Chris sit down with special guest Reyna Cervantes as they discuss the rumours of a new, upgraded Nintendo Switch; and dive deep into the announcments of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl, and Pokemon Legends Arceus. Jordan has many thoughts on the original Pokemon Diamond/Pearl and even more about Legends Arceus.
Afterwards, the gang takes a deep dive into the debacle that is WB’s upcoming open-world game: Harry Potter: Hogwarts Legacy. The game is set to include Transgender character options, which is conflicting given J K Rowling’s open stance against Trans Rights, and the game’s lead designer being openly anti-feminest and pro-Gamergate. As a Trans woman, Reyna offers her unique insight into this issue.
