And Now...The Internet
Michelle Yeoh is having an amazing year. Will you be giving this Witcher prequel a try? Given the recent Geralt re-casting news, it seems like the franchise could use some positive news.
There was a ton of hype at Worlds 2022 last week. Glad to see the esport getting so much hype state-side.
It was nice to see Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimte Showdown on the list for EVO Japan. There's plenty of hype, even when it comes to voice acting!
This was so much fun. ❤️— Elson Wong (@Darkspeeds) November 6, 2022
I upgraded my PC, sound-proofed my studio & recorded as Akira from #VirtuaFighter5. All sounds compiled from scratch - this was the perfect warm up in getting back into audio production! 😎

Well, Elon Musk has taken over Twitter and declared himself the final word. My friend drew a MODOk inspired version of the Twitter king.

Speaking of Mr. Musk, I found this Mad Men thread that I felt was fairly accurate. Enjoy

"You tell me you're rich, you're powerful. I say show me. The most powerful man in the world is nothing when the only people in the room are laughing at him. What are you showing me besides your ass and asking me to put $8 inside it." pic.twitter.com/hU13E2W4xt
I am a massive Dark Souls fan and I would love to see a metroidvania game in that world! Oh, what could have been.
A Dark Souls 3 - 2D pixelart metroidvania was pitched to Bandai Namco ~6 years ago.— Thomas Feichtmeir (@cyangmou) November 8, 2022

Doechii continues to show off the versatility and I've been pretty impressed by her lately.
Wakanda Forever dropped this week. I'm heading to the theaters this evening to check it out. So, it only feels right that I drop Rihanna's new song on the official soundtrack. Have a great night!
That's all for this week folks. Thanks for reading and take some time to get those swipes in on Shackpets! See you all next weekend.
