What a week it has been in the gaming world! With major showcases happening including more this weekend and our own E6 event happening next week, there's still plenty to look forward to and talk about. Let's dive into some high points with this week's Weekend Discussion!
Summer Game Fest brought plenty of excitement and I want to take a moment to show some love to our awesome team including Greg & Ozzie, who hit the event in-person to cover all the awesome games and grab some hands-on time with titles like Street Fighter 6!
You can check out some of the fighting game fun below from the show floor.

Speaking of Street Fighter, Rodney had some comments about the new commentary feature during this week's episode of WWES.

Rodney had a great conversation with the MultiVersus devs about the emphasis on 2v2 gameplay and more. Check out the vid below!

Pride Month is going strong and Xbox is committing to the LGBTQIA+ community in a new way with a special controller. What do you think? The amount of flags are a bit much to me design wise but I do appreciate the effort on display here. Microsoft has confirmed this item will also be around year-round so it is not a gmmick ending July 1st.
Our Pride controller features 34 flags representing the many LGBTQIA+ communities! 🏳️🏳️🌈— Xbox (@Xbox) June 8, 2022
Meet some of the amazing people who inspired the design and learn what each flag means here: https://t.co/s3c6bp9ZhL pic.twitter.com/xQ99z5WpKg
Netflix Geeked Week had plenty to show off this week but I was actually impressed by the first trailer for the Predator prequel, PREY, coming to Hulu on August 5th. Check it out below.
An awesome looking indie fighting game was shown off during the Black Voices in Gaming Showcase earlier in the week. I'm really excited so see more of 5 Force Fighters in action!

With a special Final Fantasy 7 showcase coming next week to celebrate it's 25th aniversary, it was awesome seeing Jahara Jayde's Tifa cosplay reach new levels on my feed.

Ok, this week's feel good moment comes from a wrestling club. I wish I had this kind of club in middle school, heck even high school growing up! Love to see it.
The Wrestling Club is in complete awe of this 5 star classic. Their reactions are priceless. @ShawnMichaels vs. @undertaker in the first ever ‘Hell in a Cell’ match at Bad Blood: In Your House. 🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/1g0zFZjHVv— Victor Taylor Perry (@wallflowerperry) June 8, 2022
I did not see a Pharrell drop in the cards but here we are. The visuals are wild for this one and carry this a bit for me but Tyler came with the heat on this beat too. Enjoy!
Hit-Boy and Dom dropped the kind of track that makes it onto the ride playlist. Sounds like summer and Dom hit's a flow that works well over the production. Cruising to this with the windows down is a must.
