Okay, so there is some news worth talking about this week for Hardline. But I think I speak for Steven and Conrad when I say we'd love to take questions from you as much as possible for this episode and see where that takes us. We're going live on Twitch.tv starting at 11:15am Pacific should you want to participate in what will inevitably be a weird conversation.
If you're strictly in it for the news talk, however, here's what I've got. Microsoft acquired the Gears of War property, the baby-making RPG Conception 2 is fun to talk about (but maybe less fun to play?), Nintendo says it won't make minigames for smartphones, Steam is getting a bit better about offering refunds, another EVE Online war broke out, and it sounds as if PS1/PS2 games will be playable on PS4 via PlayStation Network download.
