Pixels & Ink Podcast: Episode 385

| March 4, 2022

On this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan, Chris, Dayna and Jordan sit down to talk about the situation unfolding in the Ukraine, and how several game and media companies have been getting involved to offer their support.

In a radical 90-degree  on from that sombre topic, the gang talks a bit about the announcement from the Pokemon Presents, mainly the announcement of two new mainline Pokemon games: Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. 

Afterwards, the gang reminisces a little about the Nintendo Switch for it’s fifth anniversary, sharing their memories of the system and favorite games. They close off the news by talking a bit about Resident Evil 2 and 3 Remake, as well as Resident Evil 7 getting PS5 and Xbox Series X/S upgrades later this year; and Twisted Metal getting a full season show on Peacock. 

In the review section: Brendan watched The Boys: Diabolical Series, Dayna watched Fresh, and Jordan played Triangle Strategy.
