BlahCade #143: Four Little Words
WMS Licence rumors cause a tweet-splosion, and we learn more about how Zen licenses their cabinet properties commercially.
How can four little words spark so much rumor and speculation? We investigate the four little words show friend Brad Baker from VPCabs uttered about WMS Licences.
We also check in on Zen and how they freely allow commercial use of their games (for the right price, of course).
Farsight have released the re-organised pack structures, and people are grabbing their pitchforks. We offer some suggestions about how to overcome the problem.
