This week on “Salient Points” sees us delving into all the video game-based movie news. HBO’s adaptation of the Last of Us gets its starring roles casted, we spoil the fact that Tails is part of the “Sonic the Hedgehog” sequel for Luis and we get into Jack Black voicing Claptrap in the upcoming Borderlands movie. Also, Lil Yachty working on an “Uno” heist film treatment? Hype.
Other than that: Dalan, Luis, and I talk about Cyberpunk 2077‘s source code being auctioned off by hackers, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart release date, DualSense controller drift issues, next-gen updates for Crash Bandicoot 4 and Prince of Persia: Sands of Time and one of us gets triggered over scalpers (*ahem* “resellers”) limiting access to next-gen consoles.
Games featured: Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, The Medium, Rocket League, Little Nightmares, Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, Kingdom Hearts, Rez, Tetris Effect, Call of Duty: Black Ops: Cold War, Destiny 2, Cyberpunk 2077, Bloodstained, GoldenEye 007.
