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 didn’t. I explain within the first 30 minutes of the show here if you’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. It’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 I’m okay with – where I’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 they’ve also shown a willingness to share. Obviously with the PC side of things but as well cross platform too.
It’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, it’s been 2,595 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
