Google has decided to close its internal game development studios specifically made for Google Stadia, as well as letting go of Jade Raymond, who was the vice president in charge of the studios for the doomed streaming platform. Ben and Joel discuss the latest news regarding Mass Effect Legendary Edition, including the release date, new trailer, features, and the removal of the “butt shots.” Ben discuss his fascination with Small Soldiers.
