The next gen is here and we’re so excited! too bad our episode had some technical difficulties (or human stupidity?) and most the episode was lost, we still gush over Xbox Series X and Kaz recounts her experience so far with the PS5. in the news we talk about Mass Effect Legendary Edition (No, Andromeda didn’t happen), Phil Spencer trying to keep Elden Ring relevant, and the Roblox ‘Oof’ kerfuffle. Come pause with us!
HYPE TRAIN – *toot toot*
- Mass Effect Legendary Edition got announced—it’s a compilation of all 3 ME games plus all their DLC. No, Andromeda didn’t happen. Sounds like it’s a remaster, with some updated textures and whatnot here and there. They also confirmed that they’re working on the next ME game, though it sounds like it’s a looooong ways out. https://blog.bioware.com/2020/11/07/happy-n7-day-4/
- Elden Ring still exists, Phil Spencer has been playing it https://www.gamespot.com/articles/phil-spencer-has-played-quite-a-bit-of-elden-ring-calls-it-miyazakis-most-ambitious-game/1100-6484314/
SAD TRAIN *womp womp*
- Roblox is turning the ‘oof’ death noise into a microtransaction, since it was apparently stolen from a game called Messiah. You will have to pay $1 to say oof. This is peak internet. https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-54902039
