Stadia comes out of the gate already limping.

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...

    Randy Pitchford Paid $25,000 for Penn Jillette's Ponytail

    Yes, Randy Pitchford from Gearbox has paid $25,000 for the pleasure of owning Penn Jillette's ponytail. Alright, so there's a bit more to it than that, but the rest doesn't make for an interesting headline.
