Season 18, Episode 08

Pick a card…

Once this gets posted around everywhere, I plan on streaming for the first time in a while and it’s a game we talk about in the opening segment of the show. A little card game called Balatro.

The idea to stream it came to me as I was trying to explain it on the air and just figured streaming would be an easier way to show you how it plays. I may dip back into some pinball today as well – just for nostalgia sake. Maybe.

But that’s about today, what did we talk about on the show? Well, not really one specific thing after trying to explain Balatro. We covered Nintendo’s dev showcase thing they did earlier this week with not much to mention from that. There’s also the Elden Ring DLC but, again, not much to mention from that.

Then there’s the position Sony is sitting in. With no new franchise games being released until the midway to latter half of next year, what are they gonna do? My guess, given that GTA6 is coming next spring, is that we’ll get our midway revamp of the PS5 sometime this fall. GTA6 will not get a release on the previous generation consoles so those who want to play it are going to need to have a Series X or a PS5. And that game WILL absolutely move console sales. Having yours out there touting the best on the market is probably a good way to get that system sold for that specific game. And I don’t think Microsoft has any plans to release a Series X.5 just yet.

Something else with no plans of a release anytime soon…is Splinter Cell. Ubisoft, it’s been 3,822 days since a new Splinter Cell game (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, BBC radio drama, or VR exclusive) was released.
