Pixels & Ink Podcast: Episode 393

| May 6, 2022

On this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan, Chris, Dayna and Jordan sit down to talk about Star Wars day—they reminisce about their first viewing of Star Wars and their memories of the series. They also talk about some of the events going on to celebrate May the 4th; namely the Star Wars event in Fortnite

After this, the gang talks about some of the terrible things going on in the industry—Nintendo has been accused of union busting, Game Freak allowing for 4-day work weeks, but at a reduced salary, and Yuji Naka talking about how terrible Square Enix was during the production of Balan Wonderworld. Afterwards, Brendan talks a bit about PAX East.

In reviews/impressions: Dayna has been playing with some new Turtle Beach headphones and Jordan has been playing Dungeons of Dreadrock and Demon Turf.
