Game Bytes :: May 16, 2021 :: Arino Won’t Play That

In this news-stuffed episode of the GameBytes Show podcast, we discuss exactly where all those former Blizzard people have been going with the formation of a new studio. Final Fantasy 14 Fanfest produces several announcements (and a bunch of job-class discussion), new DualSense controllers, Destiny 2’s premature crossplay, Game Center CX adds new “retro” platforms, Pokemon show up in another new music video, and more! New releases, and has Stadia ended IN SHAME yet? The doomsday clock is still ticking!

Intro: “Star Prince” – Retro Game Challenge, by Koji Yamada & Naoto Ouba

Our weekly news show is back to enthrall and edify you, and this time we go a little off the beaten video game path to do it! This week we discuss some Magic the Gathering shenanigans, which turns into a discussion of the Pokemon CCG. Once we get down to brass tacks we uncover the PS5 UI and terms and talk about Microsoft’s rollout of their new UI on Xbox One. Microsoft also flexes their Bethesda muscle. K/DA will release a whole album, and Rock Band stuff will work on PS5 and Xbox Series X. We also cover new releases, and we pay homage to our favorite historical game publishers who have gone the distance.

Intro: “Main Theme” – Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit
