One thought on “Gettin’ Probed – Episode 348

  1. What is your opinion about how or if the Microsoft acquisition will impact the future of Diablo gaming?
    I hope the whole antitrust business will not disrupt or delay the launch of D4.
    BTW, I would definitely tune in to a Twitch stream for your podcast.
