On This Week's Episode the eternal consolidation of the video game industry continues, as Sony buys Bungie to stick it to Microsoft, and the New York Times purchases current flash-in-the-pan Wordle. The latest NFT bungle comes from an unlikely studio. EA decides to give it another shot at overextending a beloved studio with too many projects. And we discuss what the hell a Call of Duty movie with Dwayne the Rock Johnson even looks like. Plus, a eulogy for Hyper Scape, gone too soon.
