Always Online Podcast: Microsoft Beats FTC, Overwatch 2 & OWL's Woes, One Punch Man World, Kart Battle Royale & More Ep 481
The FTC basically got it handed to them by Microsoft as challenges go nowhere and it's likely the Activision Blizzard purchase will close soon. That's great news and so are ABK's financials, but could Overwatch 2 and the Overwatch League be in a bit of a bind as the game preps for a Steam release? We'll dive into some new games coming, including Stampede...a 60-person kart racing battle royale! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
