After that, they discuss the news from that time period. Sean brings up the No Man’s Sky NEXT update and wonders if Marc is gonna give the game a shot once again. While there’s also talk of Yakuza games may be coming to Xbox consoles. Nintendo wanting 20-30 indie games each week on the Switch. The HALO TV series getting the green light at Showtime. Blizzard ending the Battle Chest. Jim Carrey playing Dr. Robotnik in the Sonic movie. Rugrats get a revival and much more.
