Beastly Review: Google Stadia
So, check this out! We are here in the new year 2020 and of course, this beast is ready to give you some new content and reviews that you can enjoy. We are here with Google Stadia the new video game streaming service. If you recall my older post from 2018 talking about google beta testing a web browsing game service, well here we are. Stadia promises a lot and we are here to see what’s the hype all about.
Google Stadia Joins the Fight
We are getting into more cloud gaming services that some gamers are not feeling all digital platforms. Well, the truth is that it is happening whether you want it or not. Google Stadia is only a few months into the game and of course, some were skeptical of the service. Google has a reputation that makes me a bit worried since a lot of their content gets shut down after a time. With a starting price of $129 you get a controller and the google chrome cast ultra that promises 4k viewing with 60 FPS. This is all well and good in the manual and we have a video review for you to enjoy.
Beastly Thoughts Plus:
This is for anyone starting out in gaming on a personal note it would have been smart to start off with some exclusive titles not available to the other markets. There are a lot of indie developers that could have made a stay on Stadia to boost sales. Again there are still some hiccups one being that I can’t use regular google chrome to play Stadia and had to download Chrome Canary. Trying to look up why that is with no real results.
As stated in the video, you need more accessibility to really sell stadia. Hopefully, there will be an update of some sort that doesn’t limit where you can play on mobile devices. What is up with the issue with streaming or recording? Stadia does offer its own capture program by hitting the button on the stadia controller or using F12. but again as a content creator that is too limited.
Using a hardline and not wi-fi should show a huge difference in quality for the service, but it still has some lag issues. It can be dismissed for now, but mainly Stadia’s content is not strong enough out the gate. You get a subscription fee and still paying full price on some old titles.
At this point, I am just dancing around thoughts. The bottom line is it is a TRY before you BUY scenario with Google Stadia. There is no tastiness when it comes to Stadia, it is a nice appetizer right now. However, you would want to wait until we see more in the coming months. Hopefully, they are talking to some developers with an exclusive launch. I shall wait, but for anyone that is new to gaming, it is a cheaper alternative to getting a console or a PC.
In that, for a regular consumer sure buy it, but for a seasoned gamer, I would definitely pass if you have your consoles already. There will definitely be an update so stay in touch with the site and we shall see where this goes. – Beast Out –
