This week Microsoft blew the lid off the gaming industry by buying up Activision/Blizzard which is itself mired in controversy and unionization efforts. This is just a crazy deal overall and Digital Trends Gaming Editor Giovanni Colantonio is breaking it all down for us. What is Microsoft buying, why is Microsoft buying it, what could cause this whole thing to fall apart? Those are the big questions we tackle.

Plus, the Lenovo Tab P11 Plus is our tech yeah item of the week. It's an Android tablet that you should actually consider buying.
