Darksiders Genesis hacks and slashes its way onto Stadia, now available for $40

Google revealed today that Darksiders Genesis is the latest game to arrive on the Stadia game streaming platform, and you can pick it up today for $39.99. This is a hack and slash game where you'll explore the dark events that laid the foundation for the first game in the series, which makes this release a prequel. Not only does the Stadia release of Darksiders Genesis align with the release on PC, but this is also the first title in the franchise that includes 2-player co-op. You can also play solo if you wish, but clearly, it will be more fun battling hordes of demons and angels with your friends.

Terraforming Mars is a new strategy board game from Asmodee Digital, now available on the Play Store

Yesterday I covered Asmodee Digital's recent announcement that Terraforming Mars would be officially released on Android today. After a quick look at the Play Store this morning, the game is indeed available for purchase. You can pick it up today for $8.99, and this is a premium release, so there are no in-app purchases or advertisements included. Keep in mind, what you actually receive for $9 is the base board game, so the expansions that exist for the physical version are not included, which means the lack of IAPs may change in the future if these expansions ever make their way to the digital versions of the game.
