Since that PS Plus service is bringing back classics, I wonder if we will get a return to the advertising weirdness from former Sony eras like this.
The early PlayStation 3 era was truly bizarre. I still can't believe this is a commercial they used to sell the new system. pic.twitter.com/qQd5QZVNoc— John Linneman (@dark1x) May 17, 2022
That Halo show wrapped up this week and my friends think it's been pretty cheeks. So here's a pair.

The Boys are back and I love the marketing campaign they've been rolling out with the Vought movie studio copying DC and Marvel Studios rollouts.
It get's even better.
I need to watch this Chip & Dale movie now.

Overwatch dropped a playlist full of chill Lo-Fi to play games or chill to which I thought was a nice touch. Check it out.
Flume dropped a fun track that has an upbeat vibe to it despite the heavy bass and it has some great sounds for an esport transition video.
Lastly, I was not even aware this collab was happening until the other day and now I can't wait for an entire album to run through. Danger Mouse and Black Thought have blessed us with something great this month. Check out the track.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Next week is Combo Breaker weekend so I hope all my fighting game fans support the event as we finally have a live event again after the dark ages of the pandemic! Also, go vote on some cute pets on Shackpets. The app is free!

omg no way that PlayStation ad was real
Is that Dawn of the Seven a actual movie? Or just a clever promo for The boys S3. I can't find it at IMDb
