This week, we discuss the rumor that Microsoft is about to acquire Obsidian Entertainment. Does this move fill major gaps in Xbox’s portfolio? We discuss our favorite Obsidian games and what the developer could bring to the Xbox family. Also, Microsoft announced that the beta for Project xCloud will begin sometime in 2019.
