89 - Games as Services & THQ's Rise to Relevance

Do we really need Games as Services in our lives? Based on the latest Ubisoft quarterly numbers, Chris brings forward a nice topic this week, as the Rocket Punch crew digs deep into this new category of game and decide whether it needs to stay or not. Plus, With THQ Nordic snatching up publisher Deep Silver, does this mean the mid-tier developer is making a comeback (and will it last)? All this, plus talk on Mad Max, Dragon Ball FighterZ, and more await!
