    As a copyright lawyer, I take issue with using DMCA takedowns in this case. Their website clearly states that players can stream and monetize. I read that as Campo Santo granting an implied license to use the content of Firewatch. There's no indication that this implied license is revocable (a mistake on Campo Santo's part, IMO), so a Pewdiepie can counter the DMCA claim by stating that he has a nonrevocable license to use Campo Santo's content. Campo Santo is going to have problems showing that the implied license is revocable at will.

    If Campo Santo wants to disassociate with Pewdiepie, great, they should do so. I have no sympathy for him. Shame him on social media, don't give him future game keys, write articles for websites, etc. But DMCA takedowns are not the way to do it with their current streaming policy.

    Campo Santo should also revisit their streaming policy, possibly putting in a terms of service agreement that explicitly makes the license revocable (and possibly time-limited). If you want the option to change your association with streamers, you have to make that clear before streamers purchase your game.

    I ended up liking Persona 4: Dancing All Night more than I expected, so I'm on board.

    Stormblood (gearing out my Warrior) and Persona 5 (second playthrough, max Social Links) mostly. Might try to finish off Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 or do some timed quests in FFXV. Not touching Zodiac Age for a few months, sadly.Edited July 2017 by Unknown

    Faerie's been pretty stable, queues in the double digits at most these days. Had some problems with some of the later solo duties, but it seems like the mid-pop servers are mostly working.

    It definitely felt like they saw Microsoft and Nintendo release new consoles and thought "let's just show some games and stay out of the limelight this year." Not a bad press conference, but not earth-shattering like the last few years.

    I wonder if the revenue from FE: Heroes and Super Mario Run differed significantly between Japan, the US, and the EU. The free-to-play model works well in Japan, whereas I bet the pay-once model did better in the US.Edited March 2017 by Unknown

    @Jonnyboy407 I always find myself forgetting that Bravely Second came out this year. Fantastic game, and I finished it right before starting FFXV.
