Google cancelled a developer's entire Google account for an unknown TOS violation on YouTube, and after not being able to talk to a person at Google about losing all of their email, documents, and Google Play purchases, it was announced that Terraria's Google Stadia port has been cancelled. CD Projekt Red was the victim of a ransomware attack that stole source code for many games past and future as well as internal documents seemingly "damning" against the company. The hacked contents were subsequently sold on the black market for an undisclosed sum with the stipulation that they not be resold by the original hackers. This includes a dramatic reading of the ransom note left on CDPR's servers. I did roll credits on Cyberpunk 2077 (a couple times) and - the game was fine. Then we talk to OLR mostly about the recently released Pixel Poops on Steam, as well as the Commodore 64 version of the game and LOKI from OLR's NES game Pixel Poops No. 2.
