EvilCast Recap, Episode #184

EvilCastAfter a nice week long hiatus, the fearsome foursome are back again to drop some knowledge on the gaming masses. The full squad dug right into talk of the dramatic Xbox One DRM reversal, the possibility that the OUYA could be promoting illegal piracy in order to boost sales and Microsoft dropping update fees for Xbox LIVE Arcade games. Damn, you take a week off and the industry decides to go crazy!
