    meh. It's funny how most of the discussion around Stadia being a failure concentrates on the technology, the ownership issues, the privacy concerns, etc. but what's probably going to end up killing it is just the shitty lineup of games.

    That Gylt exclusive looks like some mediocrity thought up in a committee meeting. They probably looked at how popular lets play videos about horror games were and decided that's what they were going to do, the cartoony art style is to appeal to the young children that make up the largest demographic that watches those types of videos, and the female protagonist is there to achieve synergy with their corporate image. Although I do find it strange she's not a POC, which is what Apple seems to be doing for many of their Apple Arcade exclusives, and we all know how much Google loves to blindly copy Apple.

    They should have just called it the Ouya 2.

    I've played a single one, actually (MK11). Time is precious, hardware is expensive, libraries are overwhelming, and priorities are ever-shifting - there's a ton of people who don't keep up with every single big release :)

    Not a lot of games. Especially since these are running on regular PC hardware I would expect more. If they are going to trickle re-releases of one or two games at a time like Nintendo did with VC Stadia is always going to be lagging far behind and is never going to be a viable alternative to a gaming PC no matter how good your internet is.
    It needs to have every major new game and the top rated of slightly older games to get anywhere near being a "Netflix for games". And they have to all be included with the subscription.
    I do. Otherwise, how will we know how bad the input lag really is?

    I like the fact that some sort of Linux binary is produced at all for some of what are AAA games, but this effort is useless to us if their files will never be publicly released. If a title happens to be become unavailable for some reason, it will just disappear as if it never existed, especially if a removal is permanent. I just don't like the fact that we pay only to rent access to these games, not actually get a copy of their files.

    Just because it's the future doesn't make it inherently good or infallible.

    I hope there's a way to have like a 5 minute streaming test before you actually buy the service

    Meh.

    also: this means you can effectively stream RDR2 crashing or failing to load?

    Yikes.

    If anyone can do it, google can. I remain cautiously optimistic

    Meh. :unsure: Why play Just Dance 2020 on the Stadia, when you can buy a physical copy for the Nintendo Wii? If you hook the Wii up to a CRT, you'll have a lack of input lag that the Stadia just can't compete with! :D

    Damn that's a lot of naysaying before it's even released.

    Might be wrong, but I have a feeling that latency will barely be an issue. Overall I could see this doing pretty well. Timing might be a bit weird though since most people who want these games already own them or systems to play them on.

    Let me know when they can stream 1080p at 120 fps minimum. No way I'm going back to 60 fps.

    I can only believe that they have two fighting games to show that there won't be any lag. Still, though, who are they trying to fool? Of course there will be...

    However low my opinion on this is, I'm still interested to see if this really will be the future for gaming, at least for the moment, or if this will fail.

    I agree with the people saying that the library is wayyyy too small to be a proper netflix for gaming.

    That horror game Gylt looks like Inside at a first glance.

    I just looked at Apple Arcade and its more like Apple Cell-Shade. Seriously, I get that it's been a popular style of graphics for 3D games since Firewatch, Pitfall Planet, For the King etc. but why are soooo many games using this style right now? Sure it's okay to look at and functional, but it's like the shiny/reflective textures of the N64 era. Is this a style that the 2010s will be remembered for? Just have a look for yourself.

    Someone should write an article on here about steam officially saying they're also gonna launch a streaming service to be a competitor to google stadia.

    Yeah, Google+ 2 also seems to be put on a hold.
