Also, Square Enix is going to localize after many years a port of LiveALive, which has us particularly thrilled for a reason. New Mario Kart 8 DLC and much much more was announced.

There are rumors that Stadia has been re-prioritized within Google, which some take as a sign that this is the beginning of the end. Is this conclusion being jumped to too soon?

Isn't it weird when gaming executives try to tell us that we just don't "get" things they try to push in games? Yeah, another big gaming executive is at it again, this time on the implementation of blockchain technologies in games that a minority of people are asking for. We discuss why this idea just seems to not go away and comes up way too often in the gaming news as of late. Don't worry, there's plenty other gaming news to get into as well that DOESN'T involve acronyms beginning with N and ending with T.
