With the release of Final Fantasy XVI, the Pixels and Ink crew decided to spend some time discussing one of the year’s most exciting games. Joined by Hayes Madsen, Brendan, Chris and Jordan, the crew delve into what makes this latest entry in the long-running, legendary series so exciting. Avoiding major spoilers, the crew discusses everything from what is new and exciting about the game to dispelling misconceptions about the series and what FF XVI brings to the table.
As if that wasn’t enough, the latest Nintendo Direct took place this week, so the crew took some time to break down the biggest announcements and look at what made the selection of releases so exciting or disappointing, as the case may be. With over 20 games announced during the Direct, there was a lot to digest, and the whole crew had plenty to say about the biggest titles making their way to Nintendo Switch.
