GameSpot After Dark Ep. 60: Big Phil's Big Purchase Feat. Funké Joseph
On this week’s episode of GameSpot After Dark, Jake, Lucy, and Kallie are joined by illustrious freelancer and king of Twitter comedy Funké Joseph. As always, the crew talks about what they’ve been playing (and doing), which includes watching video game documentary Console Wars, playing Mafia: Definitive Edition, and revisiting of one of 2019’s best games, Control.
After a brief interlude to talk about Ready Player One author Ernest Cline’s less well-known (and far less favorable) work of poetry, the crew moves on to the week’s biggest news: Microsoft’s $7.5 billion acquisition of ZeniMax media, parent company to Bethesda.
What does the acquisition mean for Microsoft, Xbox Series X, and Game Pass–and what does it mean for Bethesda’s games and creative freedom? Will we see Bethesda games on PS5? Listen to find out what we think as we answer your biggest questions about the news.
We also discuss Xbox Series X/S preorders, which went a little better than PS5 preorders… but still weren’t great. Lucy is the big winner with three successful console preorders, while Jake has two and Kallie has a very sad zero.
