Topics of the Week

We discussed Serious Sam 4its Stadia exclusivity on consoles, and its possible censorship. This lead to discussion of the assumption of guilt, and the fear of creation.

We also discussed Tencent, and their recent buying and expanding spree [1, 2, 3], as well as what the Chinese tech giant could mean for western gaming.

We talked about Denuvo Anti-Cheat being removed from Doom Eternal, and the risks of kernel-based software.

We then moved onto Twitter allowing users to select who can reply to their tweets, G2A repaying the Factorio developers for nearly 200 “illegitimate” keys being sold on their platform, and the rumors of a Kingdom Hearts live-action series.

And much more!
