The week is just about over, let's wrap it all up with a nice and healthy dump.


Just like that, Friday has rolled around once again, and the weekend is upon us. Though this week wasn't nearly as chaotic on the news front as last week, there's no shortage of interesting topics to talk about. So, let's do exactly that. It's time for the newest episode of the Shacknews Dump.

On today's Shacknews Dump, we ring in August by discussing the acquisition of Dotemu by Focus Home Interactive, as well as Embracer Group purchasing 3D Realms. We'll also be checking back in with Activision Blizzard and discussing how that situation has evolved over the last week.
