After a slow few weeks - it's time to really pick up the pace with a truly Big Week in Gaming for Sunday 8 May 2022.

Join the Bigwig crew as they chat about arguably the biggest story in months - Square Enix selling off major western studios Crystal Dynamics & Eidos Montreal, including massive IPs like Tomb Raider & Deus Ex. Who picked up the bill? None other than the sleeping conglomerate giant Embracer Group.

We also mourn the closing of Melbourne's Nintendo Experience at EB Games Swanston St and look into the bizarre reports that Kanye West once pitched a game about his mother to Shigeru Miyamoto himself. Yes... you read that correctly.

Finally - we give an update on our long-running 1995 Game of Some Other Year feature and integot reviews the Regginator's brand new book.

So get ready to come up in the spot with these extra fly highlights:

▸ Square Enix selling off some of their biggest non-Japanese studios and IP

▸ Kanye West pitched a game to Nintendo's Shigeru Miyamoto

▸ And our review ex-Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé's new book - Disrupting the Game
