It is with great pains that I bring you the news of the week, gentle listenership – we’re talking about Microsoft stuff for a whole damned hour! Our topics du jour include a mammoth leak of pending plans for the Xbox division, a few notable announcements from the Tokyo Games Showcase, the Surface-but-totally-AI event in NYC this week, and a quick mention of ActiBlizzard fun.
While we did not take a break from watching television and movies this week, our ever-objective gaze was cast primarily on the Apple Wanderlust press event for 2023, where we were reminded that people wearing smartwatches are alive because of it, that tapping is the new swiping, and that a customizable button is as new and fresh as a USB-C port. Oh and Mother Nature is Octavia Spencer for five minutes.
It’s a double header of engrossing (or just grossing)content, as Rich and I discuss Beau Is Afraid along with this week’s full
release of Bethesda’s Starfield. We also briefly pause to give our reviews of soccer weather, Jackson Pollock paintings,
and John Wick 4’s law enforcement problem, most of which are topics we are quite qualified to discuss!
Well met, Star Travelers! We take to the cosmos this week on a path towards this week’s early access release of Starfield. I spend a few moments exploring Nordic mythology in my review of Bramble: The Mountain King, and we stare dreamily into Idris Elba’s eyes while appreciating the romp that is Hijack. And we’ve finally answered the question: are they gay?
