It’s been a very busy week, and Scott, Elvie, Maverick, and Melissa have a whole lot to talk about in this longer than usual podcast. Scott started up Knockout City, Elvie talks about several games including Later Daters, Before Your Eyes, Aerial_Knight’s Never Yield, and subjected herself to various pandemic-themed games on Steam, including Left on Read. Maverick has his own thoughts on site-favorite game Yakuza: Like a Dragon and how it compares to Yakuza 6, as well as Ratchet and Clank (2016), and Unbeatable [white label]. Melissa has all the deets from the latest Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest, and teases a forthcoming review for Famicom Detective Club.
The news hasn’t slowed down either! IGN’s whole situation is kind of a mess right now, the Epic v. Apple case continues to be a disaster leaking some redacted info about Nintendo, Genshin and Honkai Impact are having a crossover, Twitch officially states that being sexy is not a crime, Ubisoft’s employees are now starting trial against the company following many workplace abuse allegations, a new Dragon Quest themepark has opened while the series is expecting some big news hitting its 35th anniversary, Blizzard continues to be in a rough spot with few active projects and several high profile resignations, and we remember the influential Berserk mangaka Kentaro Miura, who unfortunately passed away.
