This week, Pete poses the question "is Activision worse than EA?" after he stumbled upon a smoking gun in some SEC filings. Pete and Steve also discuss Nintendo's latest Amiibo and whether locking key features behind a $30 figure is okay (spoiler: it's not). We round out the show with your listener questions and the latest bombshells from the Epic v. Apple case including an unusual game review from the Xbox team and some possible negotiations between Microsoft and Nintendo!
