In a surprise move against attacks this week, the servers for some Littlebigplanet title were shut down with no warning. Although Littlebigplanet 3 on PS4 can still play all previously made levels, this still comes as a sad reminder that nothing in the digital age can truly be forever.

There is a growing problem with "hate raids" on Twitch, to which Twitch has responded they are working on it yet the hate raids continue. This has led members of the community to declare September 1st a day off of twitch. We talk about this unfortunate recent trend, and some of our ideas on things Twitch should and could be doing. As well as tackling this important topic regarding gaming culture, there is plenty of gaming news for us to get into this week as well!

We finally have an excuse to bring up Ariana Grande on the show thanks to her recent concert in Fortnite. However, when people think of concerts in games, they might not be thinking of what actually happened in this much talked about concert in Fortnite, which came off almost more like an interactive music video. We talk about what this might mean not just for Fortnite, but for gaming as an artform, as we tackle this and much more in gaming news on another week of Orange Lounge Radio.   Also in the News:   * Blizarrd CEO Departs Company * Pokemon GO Community Demands Changes, Niantic Responds * Amico Delayed Again * Nintendo & EA Financial Updates

Later in the show in our call in segments, we hear from a listener who wonders if the game industry unionizing could bring it's own set of problems. All these opinions and more on another week of the show where every gamer has a voice!   Also in the News:   * New PS5 System Software * Horizon Forbidden West Delayed * Final Fantasy 14 Job Icon Change * Netflix to Get Live Pokemon Show?

A lawsuit filed by the state of California against Activision-Blizzard has sent shockwaves thru the industry. Yet here we are again with yet another story about a video game company treating marginalized people terribly. When will this end? When will this industry grow up? When will the leaders responsible for enabling this work culture face repercussions for what has unfolded on their watch? We try our best to find some answers, as well as talk about what we hope our government will do to hold this industry accountable for it's actions. We get into gaming news as well after that.

Valve surprised the industry this week by unveiling the Steam Deck, a portable but also dockable PC meant for gaming on the go. Or as many people are joking online, a Switch Pro. However, is what Valve doing something meant to be direct competition for Nintendo, or more an expansion to the market that Nintendo started? We get into that not only in the news tonight, but with the return of live phone calls to the program tonight. There's MUCH more news this week as many companies arrived a little late to the summer gaming news bonanza!

A new Nintendo OLED Screen Switch model is announced, but do we seem to be excited about this new model switch? Or is it more of a Meh? We discuss this as well as those rumors of a Switch "Pro" and what might have happened. Did gamers set the expectation bar too high based on rumors? Probably. We discuss this and much more in gaming news after a holiday weekend off last week.
