Substantial information is uncovered about Final Fantasy VII Remake’s field design, EA cancels a Star Wars game, and Activision gets sued over their split with Bungie in the news of the week!
As Activision loses long-term senior employees and high-profile corporate partners, Lusipurr, Imitanis, and SiliconNooB speculate about the diminishing position of one of the largest and most significant players in the video game development industry.
As the Summer Donation Drive begins, and with E3 rapidly approaching, Lusipurr finally insists that SiliconNooB must curtail his unreasonable and obsessive Golden Axe fixation, before his extravagant spending on vintage arcade machines bankrupts the site.

When the pictures of Adeki arrive at last, Lusipurr, SiliconNooB, and Imitanis are horrified at what they contain. To make matters worse, Australia is triumphant in the Cricket, and the poems of Owen Meredith feature prominently. Danger, danger!
