BLGP EP 241: Google Stadia, Kingdom Come, Mordhau Hits 1 Million

IS THIS THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT?
We are back this week, hot and heavy, doing a deep drill down into the implications of Google's announcement of their Stadia streaming service (powered by FOSS software, btw). We discuss the potential epoch-shattering changes that this might portend within the game industry at large in years to come. ALSO: "Kingdome Come: Deliverance" dll fix for proton, the return of ROBOFISH in "Fuedal Alloy," and beloved hack and slasher, "Mordhau" hits 1 million units sold and 7th update. All this and MOAR!
