Deals in the Stadia store for this week (started January 19th and lasts till February 3rd),

Resident Evil and Stadia
During the recent stream from Capcom about their upcoming Resident Evil game, Village, there was one platform logo not displayed at the end.. Guess who? Yep, Stadia.
Spawning from a rumor (that isn't a rumor) about Google slapping a bunch of cash (10.000.000$) on Capcom's table to get Resident Evil 7 and 8 onto the platform. This, naturally, comes as a shock to some (many).
Fret not, we're getting a fun Division 2 crossover with Resident Evil's 25th anniversary! Hooray!

Outcasters January patch notes
Two new character packs; sea squad and feral friends. Personally, I love feral friends.
Some general improvements (like fixing game crashes), a bunch of graphical polish (this one is especially funny We’ve fixed an issue with some Emotes bouncing around when they shouldn’t be.), and a slew of AI updates for smarter bots (mainly fixing bots getting stuck).

Cyberpunk, patch 1.1
CDPR dropped patch 1.1 for Cyberpunk, it went live on all platforms on January 22nd. Among the fixes, I find these most interesting:
Various stability improvements including:
- Memory usage improvements in various systems within the game: characters, interactions, navigation, in-game videos (news, tv, etc.), foliage, laser effects, minimap, devices, AI, street traffic, environmental damage system, GPU-related, and more.
- Various crash fixes (related to, among others, loading saves, game opening/closing and Point of No Return).
- Fixed corrupted textures on several melee weapons.
- Tweaked default deadzone settings to be more responsive. Note: the change will not affect settings unless they’re set to default.
