    Quick Hit: Nintendon't

    We're back with another Quick Hit episode, where we discuss how hacking videogames in Japan is illegal, along with failed Kickstarters, black belts and an interesting question: what happens with your digital games when you die?

    We've opened a ticket with Steam Support just to see what happens if Daniel's multiple copies of Football Manager just disappear into the ether, because we sure don't want to inherit those 'games'.
