Dragon Con gave an update to allow memberships to roll over for 2021 - I'm guessing that they will cancel sometime around July 3rd due to that being within two months of the show. Oculus is discontinuing the Oculus Go to push the Oculus Quest. Nintendo has decided that the investors were wrong and are pulling back from the mobile gaming market. Microsoft abruptly announced that they are discontinuing their Mixer streaming service and transitioning to Facebook Gaming. Then we take calls about the majority of Microsoft retail stores closing as well as why we at VOG chose Twitch over Mixer.

We celebrate 18 years on the air, as our show is now officially an age where we can vote! Okay, obviously our show can't vote but we can still educate on what's happening in the gaming industry, and on issues effecting the gaming industry such as the many allegations of sexual misconduct brought up in the industry this week. What can we as gamers, and large websites/companies do to help this issue? We discuss some ideas. We also take on the big news about Microsoft closing down Mixer, it's entry in the live streaming space, and announcing it's partners can team up with a quite dreadful streaming solution, leaving most to head for Twitch instead.

PAX West and PAX Australia have been cancelled, and are being merged into a week long PAX Online. Billy Mitchell has been somewhat redeemed - the Guinness Book of Records has restored his Pac-Man and Donkey Kong accomplishments after their own investigation. The FDA has approved the first video game to be used as clinical treatment for patients with ADHD. There was an interview shot at SIEGE 2016 that was never uploaded to our YouTube channel, so we aired it tonight. It is with Ron Jones The Artist of The Indie Cluster, an Atlanta-based cluster of indie game developers that promote each other as well as the game development industry to lower income schools, and the esports world to parents. Then we talk to OLR about why we're not playing The Last Of Us Part II (and why it has nothing to do with any Twitter controversy.)

We start off talking about the concept of "stagger breathing" and how it applies to keeping yourself available to make change without burning yourself out. Persona 4 Golden is now out on Steam, finally killing the PlayStation Vita. The Last Of Us Part II is quite possibly the "most accessible game ever" with over 60 accessibility options so everyone can experience the game, no matter their physical capabilities. This week during Not-E3, we had a huge PlayStation 5 reveal featuring first and third party games, as well as an artist rendering of the console. I read Imagine That! An autobiography about the black engineer who worked on the APF MP-1000 and The Imagination Machine in the late 1970's, Ed Smith. I profile his life, his time in the industry, and share some of his insights about the industry and his role in it as a minority. During the call with OLR, we talk about how the music industry is now levying DMCA takedowns on Twitch clips, and why they have the legal right to do so.
