On this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan, Chris, Jordan, and Shak sit down to talk about Sony’s new paid subscription plans for Playstation Plus—whether what they’re offering for each tier is worth the price, and how this subscriptions compares to Microsoft or Nintendo’s.
Continuing the talk of subscription plans, the gang talks a bit about GTA V’s new subscprition plan for GTA Online—what it offers and the moral questionableness of the whole thing. Afterwards they talk a bit about the recent news of the Breath of the Wild sequel being pushed to 2023.
Of course, they move on to talk about the biggest news of the week: the Oscar wins, and the infamous slap. After a lengthy conversation about it, they move on to talk a bit about the news that E3 2022 is officially cancelled, both digitally and in-person. They end the news talking a bit about the tragic news of Bruce Willis’ retirement from acting, due to his Asphasia diagnosis.
In a light review section, Shak talks about The Bubble; but Chris wants to talk a bit about his time spent playing Disco Elysium, and Jordan has some crazy stories about AI Dungeon.
