Our Favorite Cover Art Pretty Pixels Podcast

Let’s talk about our favorite video game cover art! “But this is an audio podcast! How are we supposed to follow along with visual things!?” I’m so glad you asked, mysterious listener. In the show notes below, you’ll find a handy list of links to the game art we discuss. Please, peruse them at your leisure and write in with your own favorites! We had so many picks that we had to cut ourselves off, so we’ll be doing another episode at some point, and we’d love to share some listener picks! We also chat about the possibility of new PS5 backward compatibility, the giant Take-Two/Zynga and Microsoft/Activision Blizzard acquisitions, Troy Baker’s new NFT venture (and its backlash), and more! I must lay off these exclamation points. They make it so easy to convey a sense of false excitement when I’m actually in severe pain and on the verge of falling asleep, though! See!? Contact us: prettypixelspodcast@gmail.com We’re on Twitter: @Losperman (Joey) and @bigbadron (Ron) 00:01:30: Mark Cerny files a patent for “Backwards compatibility through use of spoof clock and fine grain frequency control,” which may mean some level of backwards compatibility with older PS models is coming to the PS5 (via @shaunmcilroy on Twitter) 00:10:20: Take-Two (owner/publisher of Rockstar and 2K) buys developer Zynga for $12.7 billion! (IGN) Surely this is the most monumental video game acquisition that will occur all year! 00:11:56: Siiiiiike. Not to be outdone, in the very same week, Microsoft begins acquisition of Activision Blizzard for $68.7 billion 00:28:45: Troy Baker joins the NFT game – the Internet says “thanks, I hate it” 00:41:03: Joey’s still loving 13 Sentinels Aegis Rim and is warming up on/winding down Metroid Fusion 00:41:57: The whole Pretty Pixels gang is still very into Halo Infinite 00:51:16: Our favorite video game cover art! 00:52:07: Paul’s #5: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1iy-0fNVILKFLFJ5DzIHrRVQBYtLeFDQa/view?usp=sharing  00:57:18: Ron’s #5: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1cLOvlyAfX894J5djo2q0J4xARTiEkd4Q/view?usp=sharing  01:01:40: Joey’s #5: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1VlhXIS9JwsaxqVFU4-nNTRA8ZQHjTTAe/view?usp=sharing  01:05:05 Paul’s #4: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OU3x0OA4WLenqGUZAT9TpGWwMLfiMSKs/view?usp=sharing  01:11:00: Ron’s #4: https://drive.google.com/file/d/14i1zc90Ds3lTGgFzK13B1ZpFJOlcHZla/view?usp=sharing  01:16:40: Joey’s #4: (I mistakenly say DQ XI here, when I meant VIII) https://drive.google.com/file/d/1T1Xew6c2O0B_-j8pn5D45I1pBE9NeD_Z/view?usp=sharing  01:22:08: Paul’s #3: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ibv0d9D18oUL-3Ic3xh_ysYNNIEJw_x9/view?usp=sharing  01:26:26: Ron’s #3: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1beXNyMIzGW82btCpbiIrv9hvNdMYMlm2/view?usp=sharing  01:31:45: Joey’s #3: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ythlrNQKRuNALfZKbUoX0lNsxjSVwGKF/view?usp=sharing and https://drive.google.com/file/d/1dSh2IH1412_6HcWDe1wRf_KE825UA1YS/view?usp=sharing  01:37:07: Paul’s #2: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EGjUSXPY4mWhwLNbYK3-AFb5d5PNBKkf/view?usp=sharing  01:44:37: Ron’s #2: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GqnNG5i-T9mzGoinqi5H6dyV8iMb_vmU/view?usp=sharing  01:50:00: Joey’s #2: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1bE2dJNb3Wx4HgCfNbSve6yAhfX87aCOp/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1AUfe3aUQs_wt2g7Aeov9TFyeaog180wT/view?usp=sharing  01:55:00: Paul’s #1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1J1bP0cY4QVj7Oya7NbWU421faE7pRwsq/view?usp=sharing  02:01:45: Ron’s #1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/15-586pvOxMB1TFxNT2GSxh1y4IjDUeQo/view?usp=sharing  02:06:25: Joey’s #1: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1NgYnRhspcwuzMtJ045oqJRIPqcpLZ_G1/view?usp=sharing  Theme song by lovers.tiff: loverstiff.bandcamp.com
