The event was short-lived, but data miners believe it will be returning soon.

Last summer, Square Enix launched Octopath Traveler exclusively on Nintendo Switch, and the old-school RPG topped the sales charts and received critical acclaim.

Way back in 2015, when Yooka-Laylee first hit Kickstarter, one of the promised rewards was a special mode that gave the game a 64-bit makeover to make it feel even more reminiscent of the '90s 3D platformers that inspired its creation. It's been a long time coming, but developer Playtonic finally released the "64-Bit Tonic" mode... at least on Nintendo Switch and PC. PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will have to wait a little while longer while the kinks are ironed out.

"I am not a gamer" probably wasn't the best choice of words for Google CEO Sundar Pichai to open the company's tell-all presentation at the 2019 Game Developers' Conference yesterday. Nonetheless, there might not be words any more fitting to illustrate the mega-corporation's foray into gaming with the reveal of their new gaming platform, dubbed "Stadia." Unlike the big three with Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony, this aspiring fourth player is forgoing the traditional route of home consoles and intends to upend the gaming industry as we know it with an exclusively digital, streaming-based service. "The Future of Gaming" is not a claim to make lightly, so let's take a closer look into Google Stadia and what it means to accomplish after the jump.
