Problem Solving – Episode 382

In this episode, I talk about Microsoft building its own Xbox mobile gaming store, and read you a small piece of Microsoft’s response to the UK’s CMA. GWA Albany will vote for its union soon. Activision is, of course, engaging in union busting. I also talked about Amouranth (who is safe now). Also mentioned the Diablo V beta (and why I’m not in it).
