Always Online Podcast: Microsoft Buys Activision: Could WoW Go F2P or XBox Only Call of Duty, And First Look Reviews Ep 417

We were off last week so we run through the Microsoft purchase of Activision Blizzard and what that could mean for the future of World of Warcraft, Call of Duty, and other titles. We'll also take a peek at the newly revealed Blizzard game, chat about some rumors regarding a Call of Duty Sequel, and finish it all up with some reviews of games we did First Looks for...including Troy's Mortal Online 2 First Look! All that and more on this week's Always Online!
