Activision Blizzard's history goes back more than 40 years. Two incredible gaming brands Activision and Blizzard Entertainment merged, bringing together the best creative talent in gaming. The acquisition of King in 2016 further strengthened the company's vision to bring the world together through epic entertainment. Their professional gaming properties include the Overwatch League™, the Call of Duty League™, Hearthstone® Grandmasters, and the World of Warcraft® Arena World Championship, among others. Activision Blizzard Esports also operates Tespa™, the leader in collegiate esports. In this Episode, Activision Blizzard King's Executive Principal Recruiter for Art in Animation and Creative Robin Alan Linn talks about the importance of niching down, how to stand out in the age of social media, how to ace the most difficult interview question, the importance of empathy, vulnerability and imperfection – and so much more!

A major sale in the industry happened after last week's show when Embracer purchased some of the studios under SquareEnix holdings. However what really has people talking is the deal price that Embracer got these studios for. Why is SquareEnix trying to sell off these companies? One comment has led to a further investment in blockchain-related technologies in gaming, which has our cast talking about if this technolgy actually has a place in gaming, or if it's too crime and scam riddled past the point of no return.   Also in the News:   * New York City suing Activision-Blizzard * Summer Game Fest happens June 9th * Video Game Hall of Fame new Class * Prince of Persia Remake Continued Delays   All this and more on the show where EVERY gamer has a voice-- Orange Lounge Radio!

On today's IGN The Fix: Games, The Federal Trade Commission is reportedly opening an inquiry into Sony's planned acquisition of Bungie, marking a notable ramp-up in federal oversight of gaming mergers during a period of major industry consolidation. The FTC was similarly investigating the planned acquisition of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft to determine whether it would harm consumers, partners, or competitors. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time has officially been inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame alongside Ms. Pac-Man, Dance Dance Revolution, and Sid Meier's Civilization. These games join 32 others that have been inducted since the World Video Game Hall of Fame began at New York's The Strong National Museum of Play in 2015. A 24k Golden Wii is being auctioned off by a Dutch console collector. Initially, a gift from THQ to promote the Big Family Games mini-game collection, before THQ went bankrupt in 2009 after spending too much money on idiotic marketing stunts, the asking price for the Queen Golden Wii is $300,000 - the highest bid being two grand.
