Your Weekly Walkthrough

New Xbox prices are out, we’re loving Suikoden, here’s the week at Variable.

Good morning, everyone!

Here’s your “Weekly Walkthrough,” so you know what to expect for the week ahead.

It’s just 101 days before Christmas. Are we still gon’ be stuck at home by then?

Who’s excited for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes? We are—and we wrote features on it!

Say hello to Xbox Series X (and its cheaper cousin Series S). This holiday season is officially a showdown between Xbox and PlayStation. Which one will you buy (first)?

Since we’re looking back, our first games:

  • Franz: Space Invaders on the Atari 2600, damn I’m old.
  • Ralph: Err, Bomberman on the NES.

What’s Variable this week:

  • Now, it’s the video game industry vs. Apple.
  • TikTok has a buyer in the U.S.—but what does that mean for the rest of us?
  • We’re running our series on mental health and tech. Stay tuned for this week’s topic.

That’s all we have for you. See you next week!

P.S. Have you seen our cover image? You have? And it’s still the same? Good for you!
