Head over to www.rtxevent.com to grab your badge for RTX Austin and get ready for a weekend filled with the best of podcasting, gaming, and animation!

Activision Blizzard has had a rough year and some change but despite ongoing lawsuits and issues with harassment, a toxic work culture, employee walkouts, and a declining player base its board of directors has decided to keep CEO Bobby Kotick at the helm.

In other news, the Fall Guys relaunch kicked off with big server issues, the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 +4 remakes got scrapped, Destiny 2 cheaters have to pay millions, and there’s a weird shortage of Xbox controllers.

In this week’s 5-Second Review Brian makes a really well-informed and thought-out decision. The Coming Soon section is short but has some must-see DLC content for Cup Head and Monster Hunter Rise. All that and more on this week’s Inside Gaming Roundup

Thanks for watching everyone and have a great weekend!

In This Story: Vote

Voting is a method for a group, such as a meeting or an electorate, in order to make a collective decision or express an opinion usually following discussions, debates or election campaigns. Democracies elect holders of high office by voting. Residents of a place represented by an elected official are called “constituents”, and those constituents who cast a ballot for their chosen candidate are called “voters”. There are different systems for collecting votes, but while many of the systems used in decision-making can also be used as electoral systems, any which cater for proportional representation can only be used in elections.

In smaller organizations, voting can occur in different ways. Formally via ballot to elect others for example within a workplace, to elect members of political associations or to choose roles for others. Informally voting could occur as a spoken agreement or as a verbal gesture like a raised hand or electronically.
