Chapter 69 - Google Says Stadia is "Alive and Well", eBay Bans the Sale of Adult Video Games, 5 New Titles Coming to Nintendo Switch Online, TurboGrafx-16 Mini
Show Notes

Alright, we've made it to our 69th episode, and we promise to do our best to get through this with a straight face. That won't be easy considering eBay has announced its new ban on the sale of mature content (including video games). What's behind the company's course change, and what will happen to all those old copies of Leisure Suit Larry?

But before we get to that, we've got game announcements (like the five new titles coming to Nintendo Switch Online and Dragon Quest's upcoming 35th anniversary stream). Next, we move on to the headlines. This week, we're discussing claims that both Sonic and Stadia are "alive and well," Sony's patent that would allow users to bet on esports, Weezer's appearance at the upcoming Summer Game Fest, and how 20% of Switch console sales went to households that already owned one.

Finally, we look back at the TurboGrafx-16 mini on the console's first anniversary.
