Baldur’s Gate 3 is here and it kind of feels like the current “biggest game in the world” at the moment. I mean, it’s not. That will always be Fortnite probably. Or maybe Minecraft.


Anyways, I overheard people at work talking about Baldur’s Gate 3. People. At work. That’s the zeitgeist in action everyone.


I find it crazy that Dungeons & Dragons is simultaneously one of the biggest intellectual properties there is and also somehow constantly in financial danger. How much money do you think Hasbro makes off of Baldur’s Gate 3? I should consider looking that up.


Keeping on the “everything old is new again” path I still cannot fathom who greenlit Twisted Metal to be a television show. I’m enjoying the show well enough but honestly I would have much rather a new Twisted Metal video game instead of a live-action adaptation over a decade removed from the latest entry in the series. We live in wild times.


Finally, we all should all make a mental note to watch Deep Rising. I love it when things get new life breathed into them and they have a renaissance moment as cult classics. I hope that happens one day to this podcast.


Over on Garbage Time we talk about a dream that I had about unwittingly stealing a van from someone I haven’t really seen in nearly 20 years. We also talk about Scott auditioning to be a voice actor which leads into some comic talk which obviously ends off with talking about Marvel Snap.. If that sounds cool then show your support and head over to Patreon and subscribe at the 9ES Deluxe tier to listen to this and all past episodes of Garbage Time!
