In this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan, Chris, Dayna, and Jordan get together after a two-week absence (we were really busy with TIFF and playing video games).
To kick off the podcast, the gang talks about the tragic passing of Canadian comedy legend: Norm Macdonald—our introduction to him and his dead-pan style, and the legacy he leaves behind. Moving on from that, the gang talks a little about Ikea’s push to organize some of it’s furniture into a “gamer” section. It’s weird, but probably inevitable.
Afterwards, Brendan makes the mistake of getting Jordan to talk about Undertale, and more specifically, the surprise announcement of Deltarune Chapter 2. Dayna was unaware of Jordan’s love of the game, so he spends a bit of time rambling about that. Moving on from that, the podcast gang talks about the Playstation Showcase and all the exciting games that were announced.
To bring the podcast to a close, Brendan and Dayna talk about some of the films they saw at TIFF, Chris shares his thoughts on Star Wars Visions, and Jordan played Lost in Random and a bit of Aragami 2.
