Hey Microsoft! How's that Activision Blizzard deal coming along? …Oh. That bad, huh? Well, we're sure everything will be fine.
Psst. That's a lie, dear listeners. We actually brought Polygon's own Nicole Carpenter to discuss the myriad ways this gargantuan acquisition attempt is going poorly for the Big M. And whatever's bad for Microsoft is probably bad for a lot of western RPG studios.
Buck up. It's not all doom and gloom. We also talk about:
- Hokai: Star Rail finds immediate success with its patented Anime Chicks and Dudes in Space sales method.
- Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is getting a deserved Switch remake
- Goodbye Waypoint :(
- The Summer of Korra begins!
- How a remake of a historic Square Enix game can potentially teach you how to make napalm the way your grandma used to (Well, not anymore)
