Activision Blizzard just bought King Digital (maker of candy crush saga).

What a waste of money, imo. King is on the road to becoming Zynga

There's a kickstarter going on for a new turn-based strategy BattleTech game that looks like it will be absolutely awesome. Just thought I'd pass the word.
The BattleTech kickstarter ends today. They hit all the stretch goals. Still time to get in on it if you want.

What a weird acquisition...

Blizzard makes very few, if any, big missteps...so I guess they have some sort of plan...
