Welcome to a new year with Pause Screen! This week, Kaz talks Yoku’s Island Express, finally saving Jaina in WoW, and playing some Smash Ultimate. Kyle’s also been Smashing, as well as playing some PSVR, Salt and Sanctuary, and Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom. William has done a quick playthrough of Undertale, and bought himself the old Xenosaga trilogy. For the Hype Train, we discuss the multitude of potential (but unannounced) games from From Software, the Megaman 11 team, Square’s Business Division 11, and whatever Persona 5 R is. We also touch on the sudden firing of Blizzard’s CFO, and start discussions about Artifacts poor performance and licencing issues surrounding tattoos in games. Come pause with us!
In this, the final week before the release of the Switch, Kaz mounts up in WoW, Kyle clears out his backlog in anticipation of Zelda, and William starts in on a new genre. In news, we talk streamer culture and physical fitness, with another healthy detour into SNES preservation. Then, we mourn the loss of the Wii U and hold a wake to relive our fondest memories of Nintendo’s strangest console. Come pause with us!
