This is a game-heavy week! We get to talk lots about games like Arknights, Fortnite, The Avengers, Adios, NBA 2K21, and Final Fantasy XIV’s Shadowbringers – whose base game has a very generous free trial which now contains the critically acclaimed Heavensward expansion! Also, Higurashi Gou has finished and Alex has lots of thoughts on it. We also have lots of thoughts on news this week, so join us and our chaotic cats for this episode of Gaming Fyx!
Also, we actively stand with the AAPI community at the best of times, and especially now during the worst of times. The AAPI community has been enduring racism and violence for a long time, which led to awful acts of violence this past week. We encourage our listeners to join us in anti-racist activism, and if you are so able, to support organizations who strive towards the same cause & provide relief to those individuals and families who have had to endure the worst of it.
