With the soft launch of Google Stadia rapidly approaching, it seems like we're beyond due for a look at the platform's launch lineup. Hell, we're probably beyond due for a look at the Stadia UI and full featureset, but that is another matter entirely.

Today, Google revealed a list of 12 games that will serve as the launch titles for when Stadia has a soft launch on November 19. For $130, you were able to get in on the ground floor of the launch of Stadia with the Founder's Edition. These kits have...

    New Legend of Zelda Game Coming from Tecmo Koei - Hyrule Warriors

    The good news is that a new game is coming in The Legend of Zelda franchise for the Wii U! The odd news is that this new game is coming from Tecmo Koei and looks a lot like a Dynasty Warriors game but with Link.
