Episode 626: New Mic, New World

October 1st, 2021 by jonahfalcon · No Comments

The new mic used for the episode has improved the audio by a factor of 1,000. In fact, Episode 625’s audio is so bad, it’ll take a lot of effort to make it even bearable, so it won’t be published for a while.

In the meantime, the new Amazon MMO New World has made a giant splash, but is it worth dipping your toes in, especially since it costs $40 to buy? Meanwhile, the frustrations T.J. has as a PlayStation 5 owner come to the fore.

This week’s news includes:

  • New World goes live in North America
  • 343 makes Halo Infinite’s next multiplayer preview available to everyone on Xbox
  • Civilization 6 modder has brought back upgradeable throne rooms and palaces
  • Sony: Still many PS5 features to add
