Pixels & Ink Episode 276: Monster Hunting the Last Jedi

Pixels & Ink Episode 276: Monster Hunting the Last Jedi 1

This week, Phil, Brendan, and Lisa are joined by Preston Dozsa. The team takes a look at PUBG on Xbox One, the 2017 Game Award winners, Net Neutrality, MIGS, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and Monster Hunter World.

This week, sales figures were released for PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds on Xbox One. Within 48 hours, over 1 million copies were sold. Day-one bugs, however, made many players question their purchase. Join the team as they explore the capabilities versus the execution of the popular survival shooter as it makes its way from PC to console.

The 2017 Game Awards happened last week. As with any awards show, there were some surprises and some upsets. Join the team as they take a look at the winners and some of the announcements.

This week, the FCC voted to repeal Net Neutrality in the U.S. The team takes a look at the impact of this decision and the next steps.

The Montreal International Games Summit (MIGS) took place earlier this week. Brendan and Lisa talk about the Canadian gaming industry and their plans for the future of Canadian gaming.

Phil saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi this week. He gives the team a spoiler-free (and not-so-spoiler-free) review of the highly anticipated next chapter in the Star Wars franchise.

Preston spent some quality time with Monster Hunter World last weekend during the PlayStation exclusive open beta. He gives some first impressions of the title with a preview of the beta.
