The headlines have been all about SEGA this week, including Netflix's new Sonic Prime animated series, voice actor departures, and internal restructuring. We discuss buyout rumors (along with who we think should be doing the buying).
But let's not get ahead of ourselves. We also have game announcements (like EA's big return to college football games and Hironobu Sakaguchi's new Apple Arcade-exclusive, Fantasian). Then there's the news, such as Google's odd decision to shutter its first party developers for Stadia, troubling reports of Amazon Game Studio's "bro culture," Nintendo toys now in Burger King kids' meals, and the 20 year-old using his GameStop stock earnings to donate Nintendo Switch Lite consoles to a children's hospital.
Finally, we look back at Street Fighter II on the game's 30th anniversary.
