What Happened On Fanbyte This Week
Ooooh wee. What a week. Elise Favis started yesterday as our brand new Features Editor! The Fanbyte crew is really growing and it’s… so fucking exciting. If you have ideas for pieces, hit us at pitches@fanbyte.com. Fūnk-é has also been crushing in their first couple of weeks. They wrote a microreview of a Kirby gif that is an all timer:

One of our freelancers Joey Chip also wrote a piece about the Top 10 Chamelons in Games to celebrate the end of Chamelon Month here at Fanbyte.

Did you see that basically every studio at Activision is working on Call of Duty now? It’s such a fucking bummer. The developers of Crash 4, Toys For Bob, is being shifted to the Call of Duty Warzone team. Read Kenneth’s report here:

On the podcast front, the 99 Potions gang talked about brand new video game Mass Effect 3 on the show this week, and it’s a doozy.

Video Games
Hey, video games are starting to come out, huh? They always were, but like, we got New Pokémon Snap and Returnal today. That’s so cool! I’m excited to crack into both of these in the next couple of weeks. We’re gonna have a very fun New Pokemon Snap stream next week, so make sure you’re in the Fanbyte Discord and subscribed to the Twitch channel so you can be notified when we go live.
Friday Thoughts
Fūnk-é helped me make that bot I was talking about last week, so that’s cool. You can follow it if you want, it’s @fridays_bot. It’s been super hot in LA this week. It was 90° (in celcius that is “a lot”) before noon today. My dog got 15 feet out of the apartment before she quit and laid down on the sidewalk. Stay hydrated, folks.
Have a good one, gamers.
Did you enjoy this issue?
