You ready for this, Playa? Welcome back to the club! This week, Allan Muir and Emmett Watkins Jr. return to talk about our lingering thoughts in the final days before the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard merger is finalized. Will Game Pass get a bunch of new games added? Will dead franchises like Singularity and Spyro return? Will the Call of Duty devs get a break for a few years? And more importantly, will the folks who have been suffering under Bobby Kotick be treated better once under Microsoft? We discuss all that and more in this episode, so buckle up! Also, in the Watcha Playin segment, Al talks about Tears of the Kingdom and South Park: The Stick of Truth and Emmett talks about Thymesia and Victor Van. You can listen to the show on iTunes, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Google Podcasts, on this article, and more!
