This week on the Gaming Trend Podcast, we discuss Microsoft’s decision to make the Kinect optional on the Xbox One, share in some misery with Nintendo as Wii U consoles sell at a loss, and marvel at the existence of a Kickstarter for a Starcraft-themed MMO. Speaking of MMOs, we’re joined this week by our special guest – from Cryptic Studios, Andy Velasquez, lead producer of Neverwinter.
