A major sale in the industry happened after last week's show when Embracer purchased some of the studios under SquareEnix holdings. However what really has people talking is the deal price that Embracer got these studios for. Why is SquareEnix trying to sell off these companies? One comment has led to a further investment in blockchain-related technologies in gaming, which has our cast talking about if this technolgy actually has a place in gaming, or if it's too crime and scam riddled past...

The reception of Balan Wonderworld in the games industry was pretty cold. A new lawsuit this week that Yuji Naka has brough against Square Enix, as well as a series of tweets, have given insight as to what he believes went wrong with the making of this game. Was there poor expectations of how long a game of this scale might make? Or some mis calculations that some things done in the older days of gaming development don't always work the same in the modern era? We discuss this, and so much...

In a surprise announcement, Kingdom Hearts 4 was revealed to be under development. While it might not be surprising this long running franchise is getting another game, it was more the playable in-game footage that had people talking. Of course, was this REALLY in game footage, or a target render displaying UI elements? Only time will tell for sure, and how much time this game will need to come out is anyone's guess. The existence of this game though lends a lot of chatter to some prior...

Isn't it weird when gaming executives try to tell us that we just don't "get" things they try to push in games?

We discuss why this idea just seems to not go away and comes up way too often in the gaming news as of late. Don't worry, there's plenty other gaming news to get into as well that DOESN'T involve acronyms beginning with N...
