Summer Playlists

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-knue8-122eab7

The whole damn Pixels crew is here, ready to talk about our summer playlists! Tab, Paul, Ron, and Joey talk about the games they’re excited to play this summer. We’re talking upcoming games like Arcade Spirits: The New Challengers, but also plenty of games we’re catching up on or revisiting, like Max Payne and Far Cry. We also touch on some movies, shows, and books we’re hoping to dive into, including lots of anime. Sailor Moon! Studio Ghibli! We have a lot to catch up on. What’s on your summer playlist? Email us and we’ll read it on the show! We also talk about Activision Blizzard’s diversity tool, the shocking (?) Starfield delay, the first batch of PlayStation Plus Premium games announced, and a little about Warner Bros.’ new MultiVersus game trailer. And, of course, we get into what we’ve been playing (hint: it’s a lot of Elden Ring).
