Weekly Recap Dec 14th: NSA Invades Gaming, VGX Goes Full Cringe, GOG Offers Digital Refunds
Microsoft ends back up in hot water after it was discovered that the NSA has been using popular online hangouts to spy on people, some of which includes Linden Labs' Second Life, as well as Activision Blizzard's hugely popular World of Warcraft. However, the real crime was that the NSA has been using Kinect and Xbox Live to do just what everyone was afraid of with Kinect 2.0. The previous news was slightly softened by Spike's VGX awards show, which was so cringe-worthy it ended up getting its own memes, and Good Old Games has taken another pro-consumer step forward, offering DRM free titles and 30 refunds... now if only Steam can follow suit. Speaking of Steam, the SteamOS is currently available to download for free, but it's not quite user-friendly. These stories and more in this December 14th, 2013 edition of the Gaming Blend Weekly Recap.
