Pixels & Ink Podcast: Episode 354

Auto Draft 91

In this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan takes over hosting duties as P&I tries out a new format—a more singularly focused, discussion-based Pixels & Ink.

For this episode, Brendan, Jordan, and Chris crew talk a bit about Geoff Keighley’s Summer Games Fest and some of the games that were revealed. The gang is particularly interested in Eldin Ring—what they can expect from the game, how gameplay will work and to what degree George R. R. Martin is contributing to the project. 

Afterwards; with E3 2021 right around the corner, Brendan, Jordan and Chris get into their predictions for this year’s monumental gaming showcase. Jordan talks A LOT about the upcoming Nintendo E3 Direct—he thinks a Breath of the Wild 2 announcement is likely, Splatoon 3 is probably on the table, and maybe the announcement of the last two Smash Bros Ultimate fighter pass characters. 

Chris talks a bit about the Square Enix showcase and what he expects from it, while Brendan and the gang talk about the Microsoft showcase and what we could expect from both them and Bethesda.
