A lot of strange news this past week. Hi-Fi Rush doesn’t do as well as expected, Warner Bros disses themselves, Bam gets in trouble, Microsoft fails to monopoly, Harrison Ford hangs up his Indy hat after the newest film, and Disney and Desantis go to war.
Streaming games is a great business plan! Kinda… sometimes. -Bryan
Warner Brothers hires James Gunn to reboot the DC universe, then blames his reboot for Shazam 2’s shit performance -Bryan
I was quite into Bam’s antics during my late high school early college years. Sad to see how far down he has gone. Oh, since the posting of that there’s been an update or two. -Jon
If Harrison Ford hangs up the hat, when will Shia LaBeouf step up? – Joel
The Competition and Markets Authority in U.K. has ruled against the acquisition of Activision Blizzard, largely citing Microsoft’s strong position in cloud gaming and how ownership of series like Call of Duty, Overwatch, and World of Warcraft could unfairly monopolize the future of video games. No mention was made of the Skylanders series. – Joel
The UK goverment has blocked the Microsoft purchase of Activision again, and for some reason the very consumers this will eventually hurt are really mad about it. Why people root for a monopoly to happen will never make sense to me….-Bryan
Disney, tired of being bullied by Deshithead, has filed a lawsuit against him for political retaliation issues. Mickey was reached for comment, “Ho-ho, I let him get married in my park and now he lights a bag of shit and throws it through my living room window!? Minnie told me to stay calm, but this is ridiculous! HOT DOG! I’ll show him where he can shove… well a hot dog!!” -Bryan
