So, turns out I had one of those major life things happen this week. We were still able to do a show, but there was a chance we almost didnâ€™t. I explain within the first 30 minutes of the show here if youâ€™re at all curious as to what happened. The point of that conversation still stands however. Pay attention to what your body is telling you. Itâ€™s doing it for a reason. Act on it.
The last news this week I remember watching as it happened was Microsoft buying Bethesda. This is something Iâ€™m okay with – where Iâ€™d be way more cautious were it someone like Sony or Nintendo. The latter being…well, just weird if that were to happen, but the former taking place would give me some concern. I explain it all in the show, but Microsoft as of late has shown a much more open approach to their acquired studios. They seem to be hands off, so that the studio can do their own thing. And theyâ€™ve also shown a willingness to share. Obviously with the PC side of things but as well cross platform too.
Itâ€™s a lot of money for a studio like that. At least, what they paid for it is a ton of money, which may explain the reason their stupid proprietary external storage for the Xbox Series X/S is so damn expensive.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,595 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
