On this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan, Chris, Dayna and Jordan sit down to talk about Elon Musk trying to buy Twitter, and the potential ramifications of that purchase—having left Twitter for good, Jordan is pretty ambivalent towards it.
Afterwards, they talk about the Square Enix’s 20th Anniversary of Kingdom Hearts, and the surprise reveal of Kingdom Hearts VI—Jordan spoils the ending to the terrible plot of the three year-old game.
Afterwards, they talk about the surprise announcement of No Man’s Sky’s Outlaw update; which adds new features and areas to the game. The gang looks back a bit on No Man’s Sky, and how genuine their commitment to building the game to its initial vision is. They also talk briefly about Aspyr purchasing Beamdog and how Epic games received $2 billion dollars from Sony and Epic. How they plan to use that money is anyone’s guess.
In the review section: Dayna has been watching Single Drunk Female, Brendan watched Russian Doll: Season 2; and Jordan watched Sonic the Hedgehog 2!
