Well, so, it sounds like Pokemon Legends: Arceus is both a cool, new direction for Pocket Monsters and the environments are… you know, they're environments. Right? That ain't nothin'!
My current guess is that we see a fancified version of this and BOTW2 on whatever a new Switch looks like, whenever a new Switch is a thing. I feel like the transition from Wii to WiiU and from WiiU to Switch tells us everything we need to know about the path they think is best, and it's supremely difficult to argue with it if you think money is important. In earlier eras, "Lateral Thinking With Withered Technology" offered unassailable pragmatism. In the current moment, it's the only philosophy that might result in a machine you could actually make, ship, and sell.
We have two hashtag sponsored streams tomorrow and the next day, with special guests from the Storybook Brawl team to tamp down our worst excesses and perhaps - perhaps - to rid us of the Egg Dream once and for all.
We wish, more than anything, that you'll tune in to https://t.co/A9BCAQYM4H next week for two special #sponsored @StorybookBrawl streams! @TychoBrahe and @Dabe will be joined by some special guests from the Storybook Brawl team on February 1st and 2nd from 2-5pm PT. pic.twitter.com/GJelr5VbQT— Penny Arcade (@PA_Megacorp) January 26, 2022
Dabe and I stream it for four hours every Friday, but the fact is that we play multiple rounds a day every day in the "STORYBOOK BOYS" Discord we set up for this explicit purpose. To have a sponsored stream during the absolute zenith of our affection for it is beyond even dreams. Please stop by around 2pm PST tomorrow and make our guests feel welcome!
