Episode 13 - cloud gaming

This week on PPG we discuss the awesome announcement from Google at the GDC 2019, but Google isn't the only company getting involved into the Cloud Gaming arena so we'll discuss all the other projects going on including some beta testing that Chris got to do with GeForce Now. This could be one heck of a year for the gaming industry when I comes to the technology being used to make gaming more accessible to everyone.

We'll also discuss the upcoming titles for April and what we're looking forward to seeing out there. Actually more excited of re-releases than some of the new additions into the gaming world for that month. Epic will also be in the conversation a little bit as they enter the news for lifting localized private information from steam clients which they haven't asked users for! That's a no no.

We hope you enjoy this weeks episode
