The news for the week includes:

  • Ubisoft to pull online from older games, which also takes away your DLC

Ce podcast n’est pas parlé en français. Ce n’est même pas en français canadien. Désolé, nous ne vivons pas à Montréal. Les gars se moquent du gouvernement du Québec pour leur peur provinciale de l’anglais et blâment tout sur la langue.

L’épisode de cette semaine comprend les nouvelles suivantes:

  • L’industrie québécoise du jeu vidéo sera impactée par une loi linguistique controversée
  • RimWorld: Console Edition arrive sur PS4, Xbox One le 29 juillet
  • Samsung Gaming Hub est officiellement lancé

Il y a aussi des retours d’auditeurs. Dites-nous ce que vous en pensez.

If you’re wondering where episode 652 is, the file was completely distorted, with only one half of a conversation going. So, all the discussion about Sony’s State of Play is lost to the ether.
