On this week’s Pixels & Ink podcast: it’s another late-night podcast as Brendan, Chris, Dayna, and Jordan sit down to talk about the latest batch of bad news surrounding Activison Blizzard; as employees staged a walkout and petitioned for CEO Bobby Kotick to step down. Moving to more cheerful news, the gang talks about the newly released Spiderman: No Way Home trailer, that showed a lot more of the tone of the film, and a lot more Molina.
The gang moves on to discuss the announcement of the VGA2021 nominees—Jordan spends a bit too much time browsing the categories. Moving on, Dayna is excited to talk about the bizarre Ed Sheeran/Pokémon Go collaboration, and Jordan is not at all excited to talk about DC’s new Smash-like: Multiversus.
