Always Online Podcast: Lost Ark's "P2W" Item, Diablo Immortal Faces Chinese Ban, And Epic Games' Dumb Review System Ep 437

Seriously...is Blizzard just too far gone at this point? They make some more self-inflicted wounds this week and some of them could result in Diablo Immortal not being released in China. XBox Games leaders also say there's no crunch at Bethesda following Kotaku's Fallout 76 reporting, and Lost Ark backtracks on a cash shop item they had planned coming to the western version of the game due to player feedback! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
