Episode 443 - Abuse at Activision-Blizzard
Rob, Patrick, and Cado gather today to talk about the allegations of abuse at Activision-Blizzard. They discuss the ways corporate structures aid abusers, the possibility of ousting Bobby Kotick, and what levers of power workers have to enact lasting change. Then we go stream spoiler mode for Inscryption, the digital card game that ends up being more than meets the eye. After the break, Patrick checks in with Halo Infinite, the latest Halo game from 343 Industries, which takes the Halo franchise open world for the first time. Then Cado and Patrick have a quick check in with Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, a game that is harder than Cado remembers, and uglier than Patrick would like.
