Discord users can now see the music their friends are listening to thanks to spotify integration. How much do we rely on "other" soundtracks while playing video games?

We discuss in our kick off topic, and then get into our news of the week which includes an announcement of Mario Kart coming to Smartphones. That should be interesting with no controller, but we throw out some ideas of how that might work.
