Always Online Podcast: Kakao Games' Rough Quarter, Hotel May Sue Activision, & Should MMORPGs Invest All Content? Ep 454

MMORPG teams invest in a lot of resources to get a game up and running, let alone popular. But should they really invest in endgame difficult content when it's a low percentage of players who participate? Path of Exile is adding "Ruthless" mode in this same spirit, Activision may end up getting sued by a hotel of their inclusion in Call of Duty under a different name, and Kakao Games had one rough quarter...will upcoming titles turn the tide? All that and more on this week's Always Online!
