GAMING WIRE: Headlines for 5/17/21

This week's top headlines have Google Stadia officials giving a pep talk, more on Epic vs. Apple and Mass Effect Legendary Edition's director speaks.

Every Monday, we will round up the top news stories and YouTube videos about the industry to see how other outlets are reporting on the big news. Be on the lookout for a weekly newsletter of gaming headlines, coming soon.

On the docket this week: Google gives perhaps a vote of confidence to its Stadia platform (sports fans know this isn’t always a good thing when a coach or manager gets one of these); it’s been tough to follow the Apple vs. Epic lawsuit but has been doing a good job of constant updates and aggregation so be sure to give their devoted link a read; if you’ve never played Mass Effect, you may want to skip C|NET’s interview with the Legendary Edition’s project director as he might share some spoilers but if you have, check it out.
