Ubisoft To Pull Online From Older Games

Episode 489: Gooey Episode

This week includes a Gaming Flashback about the sticky puzzle game World of Goo, which was one of the first games released without DLC — which is one of the main themes running through this podcast: videogame obsolescence. The guys also discuss James Gunn’s work on Lollipop Chainsaw and speedrun cheating.

The news for the week includes:

Ubisoft to pull online from older games, which also takes away your DLC
Sucker Punch has “no plans to revisit” its Sly Cooper or InFamous games
Squad’s 50v50 tactical FPS action has moved over 3 million copies
Fable reboot gets a new narrative lead

All this and Listener Feedback.
