GameStop Stock Situation EXPLAINED, Xbox Live Gold Price, Joy-Con Drift VS EU & More

  1. AlanJohn
    In this week's episode it's all about money. Xbox Live Gold went up in price, then went back down, proving once again that Microsoft are truly gamer oriented by keeping a service that should be free at the same price. We also discuss the merging of Vicarious Visions into Blizzard, as a form of punishment by Activision for daring to create a good game for once. Joy-Con drift is back in the news due to a major lawsuit in the EU, which is something we dissect in this episode. We discuss the Keanu Reeves sex mod controversy as well, and whether or not it's OK to make one. And finally, the GameStop stock market situation is explained in full detail by none other than our resident lawyer and financial enthusiast Ericzander.
