GDC was this week, and Google made a huge splash by revealing Stadia as they enter the video game market. Does the new platform represent the future of gaming as a streaming service, or will consoles and physical discs still reign supreme? We discuss the benefits of Google’s tech and talk about who this service is ideally for – as well as whether any of us will be adopting Stadia later this year.

In addition, Phil Spencer supposedly responded to the Stadia reveal in an internal email to the Xbox team that was leaked. We discuss whether we think the email is true, and more importantly, what Xbox’s response to Stadia will be at this year’s E3. The Xbox team continues to say they’re planning to go big at E3 this year; what could that mean? We talk about what we think will happen at the biggest gaming show of the year.

Nintendo announced a bunch of new indie game releases for the Switch, and Konami is celebrating its 50th anniversary with three different collections. Which of these are worth buying? Finally, we discuss Bethesda’s reveal of some of its plans for E3, and what surprises they could possibly have in store this year.
