Some Good Burger, Some Bad News, and Shazam?

Hope your weekend went well. We’ve got kind of a strange and sad assortment of news today, so I’m not going to be my usual sarcastic self. We’ve got a Good Burger sequel announcement, Lance Reddick dies at 60, Jirard buys up a bunch of Nintendo games before they’re delisted, and Shazam has quite underwhelming weekend.

This week on another exciting episode of The Fate We Make, Bryan Dressel, Matt “Zombie Dog Robbie the Robot” Dykes, Joel “Optimus Prime” DeWitte, and Ryan “HAL” Lootens adjust their expectations to talk about the third Terminator film, ‘Rise of the Machines.’ It actually isn’t that bad of a film and as the Binge Buddies mention up top, it’s better than what’s to come.

Playstations, Cocaine Bears, and Mike?

Good news for those who all finally got your PS5s! They’re going to make a newer, better version that you won’t be able to get until much later when they start working on the PS6. Haha. Gaming. Oh, there was a Day 1 release of a neat game if you’ve got Playstation Plus, and Cocaine Bear is now on digital for your fear, I mean enjoyment. And * checks notes * it looks like Joel is being replaced. I dunno, I thought he was a nice guy. Definitely a great addition to Binge Buddies.


Not that Joel? The other Joel? From The Last of Us?

Mind the Messy of PsychOdyssey

Here’s a newsflash for you that is probably super obvious: game dev is messy. Like, extremely messy. It’s all chaos all the time and then suddenly WHAM, out comes a game. Even throwing super regimented and organized individuals into the fray doesn’t seem to stem the tide of just pure, unadulterated chaos. I read books like Press Reset and Blood, Sweat, and Pixels and see some of the fallout from all this chaos and I can’t help but wonder…why? Why do people subject themselves to all of this…(please don’t say chaos again…) disarray for some pretty bleep bloops?

Enter PsychOdyssey, the enlightening 32-episode documentary series about Double Fine during the creation of Psychonauts 2. You read that correctly. Thirty-two. Episodes. 2 Player Productions, the documentarians in this venture, followed Tim Schafer et al. around for seven years, recording the ups, downs, and all the diagonals of the video game creation process. And boy are there a lot of diagonals.
